Dungeon Summary

Cardify Skills are disabled.

The first two waves consist of various Event Cards.

The Bosses Fire.png Zenon & True Vermillion are weak to Water.png and Stab.png

Elementary through Advanced Difficultues are a rerun of Assault of the Machine Dragon with Zenon as the Boss.

From Demon difficulty onward, True Vermillion appears as the Boss.


Waves 1 & 2

  • Elanor and Zenon appear on the 1st Wave. Defeating one of them will cause the other to run off.
  • Either Nutcracker or Elanor with Natalia & Sharon will appear on Wave 2.
    • If the latter group appears, defeating Elanor will cause Natalia & Sharon to flee.

True Vermillion

  • Vermillion's Preemptive Attack will attack the Party and break their Shields. He'll also Buff himself +10 to all Stats, apply an Iron Wall Shield, and immediately Charge up.
    • On the first turn, Vermillion will attack and attempt to Paralyze the Party.
    • On the next turn, Vermillion will unleash its Release attack! Break or Overwrite Vermillion's Shield to prevent his Release attack!
  • Vermillion can cause Seal with some of his attacks. He'll also Debuff you as well.
  • Status Reflect or Evasion Shields can be quite handy for avoiding parts of Vermillion's attacks.
    • Evasion Shields will prevent most of his damage, but you may be susceptible to any secondary attacks/effects.
    • Status Reflect can prevent you from getting Paralyzed/Sealed and reflect Vermillon's Debuffs.
  • Eventually, Vermillion will begin to Charge up again; this time with a Water Absorption Shield. As before, break or overwrite the Shield to prevent his Release attack.
  • Partway into the fight, the VM Scrapper will appear to help out.
    • It has 10 Million HP, so there's no point in trying to defeat it.
    • It will Debuff and attack Vermillion while Healing itself every turn.
    • The VM Scrapper will flee once Vermillion is defeated.

Old True Dragon King

This is a rerun of TDK from the previous event. See here for more info.

True Dragon King

  • The VM Scrapper appears as the sole Boss this time around instead of True Vermillion.
  • The mechanics are fairly similar to the True Vermillion fight, so not many changes there.

Super Dragon Emperor

  • Both the VM Scrapper and True Vermillion appear together for the Boss Fight.
  • Their Preemptive Attacks will attack the Party, break your Shields, and wipe your Debuffs. Both Bosses will immediately Charge up, apply Iron Wall, and fully Buff themselves.
  • The same general Strategy remains as before, only now you have to deal with double the trouble!
  • Try to get rid of one of the Bosses quickly to make the fight easier to deal with. (They've got around 1 Million HP a piece.)
  • Try to Debuff their ATK to keep some of the damage down; otherwise, it's gonna hurt!
  • It may be helpful bringing some powerful Multiply Enhancers to try to keep the Bosses in check when they're Charging up.

Recommended Cards

  • Blue Stab: Hercules, Walrus, Patricia, etc.
  • Shield Breakers/Anti-Shield: Nyarlathotep (B), Touko, Ainrare, Ame no Uzume, Izanami, etc.
  • Strong Heal Cards: Pio, Sakuya, Tofu-kozo, Koropokkuru, Dryad, etc.

After clearing the Dungeon, there's a chance that a Drone will drop from the Dungeon Chest.
The Drones can be evolved to SS+ and SSS. When you evolve a Drone to SSS, you can use a element-specific GOD Ring to evolve it to one of three different Drones.

Name Sub Skill
Water.pngSS.png General Purpose Drone Grants 15% Skill Boost; 15-20% Skill Boost on Straight+
Water.pngSS+.png General Purpose Drone Grants 15-20% Skill Boost; 20% Skill Boost on Straight+
Fire.pngSSS.png Heavy Drone When Main Card has Attack Skill, grants 25-35% Skill Boost and +1 ATK
(For every +1 ATK, the minimum and maximum Skill Boost is increased by +1%)
Water.pngSSS.png High-Speed Drone When Main Card has Stab Skill, grants 30-40% Skill Boost (For every +1 AGI, grants +1% Accuracy)
Wood.pngSSS.png Scout Drone Grants 20-30% Skill Boost and +1 DEF/AGI

For the 2nd Run, the Drones can be further evolved to GOD by using a SS+ General Purpose Drone and a GOD Ring. This also increases their Level to Lv60!
This means you need 10 SS General Purpose Drones and 2 GOD Rings total to evolve a single Drone to GOD.

Name Sub Skill
Fire.pngGOD.png Assault-Type Drone When Main Card has Attack Skill, grants 25-35% Skill Boost and +1 ATK and executes a Strong Fire attack (0.80x)
