The important thing when trying to clear higher difficulty maps is having a dancer on your team.
This is because granting more actions to a unit can mean the difference between defeat or victory, as Infernal and Abyssal maps often try to swarm you with many enemy units.
Peony is a strong dancer that can be obtained after clearing Book IV - Chapter 1, Part 5.
These are just a few dancers that are easily obtainable, but you can use other dancers in their place.
Just remember that once you get a dancer, building them should be top priority because of how useful they are!
|Sothis||Legendary Azura||Legendary Celica||Legendary Alm|
Many 5★ units (especially Legendary and Mythic Heroes) that can be obtained from banners are very powerful, and thus are helpful in clearing Infernal and Abyssal maps.
These are some of the powerful units that you can pull and build.
Legendary Azura is one of the best dancers in the game that can be pulled from a banner, so if you manage to snag one, build her straight away as she can be used in other game modes as well.
|Plegian Dorothea||Valentine's Alm||Ninja Lyn||Masquerade Sigurd|
Another set of special type units that can be used are Duo and Harmonized Heroes.
These units have a skill that can be used once per battle that can be very helpful in helping turn the tide of battle.
These are only a few examples of the units you can pull, so when a banner featuring a Duo or Harmonized hero comes up, you may want to try checking it out!
Obtained through Xenalogue Maps
Obtained through Story
Legendary Ike and Fjorm are two of the best free units that you can get that can clear in clearing Infernal and Abyssal maps.
Ike can be obtained after clearing Xenologue 3: The People's Hero, while Fjorm can be obtained after clearing Book II - Chapter 1, Part 5.
Both of these units have weapons that allow them to counterattack regardless of range.
Fjorm is especially powerful against ranged enemy units due to her Special Ice Mirror II, which reduces their damage.
Legendary Ike, on the other hand, has good sustain and can take multiple hits due to Radiant Aether II.
These units are available at 3★/4★ and possess weapons that enable them to attack twice when they initiate.
This is very useful, as this means they can usually take out enemy units in one attack or at the very least, deal a significant amount of damage.
|Legendary Roy||Yarne||Legendary Leif||Pirate Tibarn|
One of the quickest ways to clear a high difficulty map quick is to use units that have the skill Galeforce.
While the Special is on a long cooldown, it can be shorted with effects such as Heavy Blade 3.
There have been people who have cleared these higher difficulty maps in one turn due to the use of Galeforce, so it's a team that you can try!
Obtained through Story
Eir is a unit that you can obtain after clearing Book III - Chapter 1, Part 5 and is very useful in many game modes.
She can act as a debuffer and semi healer to your team, as well as take out any magical enemy units due to her high speed and resistance.
Brave Lyn also boasts high speed and damage, and can be obtained by purchasing the Starter Support Pack.
These units serve to deal chip damage to enemy units, making them easier to kill, and also to restore HP to their allies.
Flayn is useful due to the effect of Caduceus Staff which reduces the damage done to her allies.
If you're looking for a mobile healer, a cavalry or flying healer is recommended!
|Lysithea||Azura (Young)||Legendary Azura||Peony|
This team is made up of 1 mage that can often one-hit enemy units and 3 dancers to buff and support them.
You can use any mage you think has enough firepower to one-hit enemy units, but for this team, we have chosen Lysithea.
Her Hades Ω not only accelerates her Special trigger, but also grants her buffs if her Special is ready.
The dancers can be anyone, but it's highly recommended that they are units that can give plenty of buffs both at the start and during combat.
The downside to this team composition is that the dancers cannot dance each other, so careful placement is a must.
This team is made up of 2 units with Galeforce and 2 dancers.
You can substitute this team for any of the Galeforce users previously mentioned above, but for we went for a beast theme for this team due to their extra movement.
The aim of this type of team is to clear the entire map in one turn with consecutive uses of Galeforce and taking advantage of Wings of Mercy 3.
You can give Wings of Mercy to all units so they can immediately swoop in and either dance or take out more enemy units once one of them has entered the thick of the fight.
The downside to this type of team is that because they deal physical damage, they will struggle against armored units, especially in Abyssal maps.
|Brave Hector||Legendary Dimitri||Peony||Triandra|
This team is a bit specifc as you need to use Brave Hector and Legendary Dimitri, along with 2 dancers.
Mostly made for enemy phase, you can take advantage of Brave Hector's Maltet refine to have Hector deal huge amounts of damage to enemy units that attack him.
Peony and Triandra can be swapped out for any other set of dancers, but it's recommended that you use dancers that can give massive buffs and debuff enemy units.
There are many unit combinations to try when clearing these higher difficulty maps.
While challenging, you can clear them with free to play and easily obtainable units, provided that they are built properly.
