Event Overview:

Don't Bring A Lot of Dark Monsters

Main element is Light in this dungeon. Don't bring a lot of Dark monsters in order to not take a lot of unnecessary damage. Also don't bring Fiend monsters due to the boss' slayer ability.

Bring Null Damage Wall Monsters

The main gimmick is damage walls. Bring as many NDW monsters as you can.

1st Stage! Clear the Cupids First!

Progression Order
1. Defeat the Cupids
2. Defeat the Dollia
3. Defeat the stars

Clear from the highest damaging mobs which will be the Cupids. Next up clear the Dollia if you don't have all NDW monsters since they shoot damage walls.

2nd Stage! Clear From Weak Elements!

Progression Order
1. Defeat the Smydras that you are weak from
2. Defeat the remaining mobs

Every Smydra can deal decent amount of damage. Focus on the Smydras that you will take more damage from. If you have bounce monsters, you can pinch between each set of monsters.

Invade! Clear the Mobs First!

Mini Boss' HP: 2.2 million

Progression Order
