Event Overview:

Don't Bring Demon Monsters!

Shi Huangdi is a Demon Slayer M and she has relatively high damage in her attacks and some are unavoidable. Don't bring any Demon monsters. Some notables are Queen Butterflight, Medusa, Cybele and Belpheghor.

Bring Flight/MS and Null Warp Monsters

The main gimmicks of the dungeon are Mines and Warps. It is recommended to bring a monster that can deal with both gimmicks. However if you can't, prioritize Null Warp monsters or have more NW than Flight/MS. 

Focus on the Mini Bosses!

The mini bosses are the main priority of the dungeon. The specters will shoot out mines and recover Shi Huangdi's HP. The knights will deal a very powerful bomb air strike if your monsters are near the boss. 

1st Stage! Pinch For the Win!

Progression Order
1. Defeat the two mobs on the left side
2. Defeat the two mobs on the right side
3. Defeat the knight

First off, defeat the bottom row of mobs. You can easily defeat a set by pinching between them. The brown blocks will move up/down every two turns so you only have two tries to clear each side. After the clearing the mobs, aim for the knight. He will do a bomb raid attack right below the mobs.

2nd Stage! Focus on the Mini Boss!

Progression Order
1. Defeat the specter and knight
2. Defeat First Impress
3. Defeat the remaining mobs

The specter will shoot mines and heal Shi Huangdi and the knight will do a bomb air strike. Therefore, you have to clear them both first. Once you defeat them, aim for the boss by converging your monsters to the bottom left corner to deal a lot of damage.

3rd Stage! Defeat the Knights!

Progression Order
1. Defeat the knights
2. Defeat the Blue Smydras
3. Defeat First Empress

Both the knights will do their bomb air strike attack. Usually it comes out every two turns when one is present but since there are two, it will come every turn. Look for the opportunity while the blocks are down to aim for the left or top of knights to instantly defeat them. Make sure your monsters are not near the boss while the knights are up.

1st Boss Stage! Focus on Mob Clear!

Shi Huangdi's HP: 2.7 million

Progression Order
1. Defeat each Smydra+Warp set by pinching
2. Defeat the specter
3. Defeat First Impress

Depending on where your monsters are, the blocks can block off their way into the boss. It is best to clear the mobs first to turn this stage as an endurance battle. Make sure you clear before her 11 Turn attack which she does a powerful Ex+Cross Laser combo.

2nd Boss Stage! Focus on the Knight!

Shi Huangdi's HP: 2.5 million

Progression Order
1. Defeat the knight
2. Defeat First Impress
3. Defeat the remaining mobs

The knight will do a powerful bomb air strike so it is best to defeat him first. If your monster converaged to the boss on the previous stage, they will be in position to take him down in the first 2 turns before he actually does the attack. If not, you can use a strike shot to make your life easier.

3rd Boss Stage! Defeat the Mini Bosses!

Shi Huangdi's HP: 4.0 million

Progression Order
1. Defeat the knight
2. Defeat the specter
3. Use strike shots to defeat First Impress

Take down the mini bosses first to mitigate damage. Aim for the tight spots between the boss and the walls to deal a lot of damage. Wall Bouncing SS or even Increase Speed+Strength SS will be more than enough to instantly deplete her HP.
