I don’t make a guide for those difficulties because there are nothing specials on those difficulties. The enemies are easy and the exploration points don’t give you any special thing; only Copper, silver, Iron, Lumber. They can be found on the story exploration points. Simply clear “easy” difficulty once to unlock the next one until you manage to unlock Pro difficulty.
The Pro difficulty exploration points have an item called CAVERN ORE, it’s only obtainable from this place so if you want to create Shining Splendor then you must farm on the Pro difficulty.
Tips: PRO difficulty is hard, I mean really hard. There are 3 bosses which can be painful. I suggest you to bring all 5 stars heroes to the Pro difficulty (max LVL). If you seems not able to clear this event right now, then don’t worry. Because I am pretty sure that they will make it available later (this event has appeared 2 times before on the beta, now it appear again). This is why GUMI only give us 4 days, because GUMI will make it available again later (It’s not a fact but I believe it’s 99% accurate).
It’s a good sword which give you + 72 Atk and +8 Def. Unlike other events (Rod of Gravity…), this event’s reward is really worth the effort. So, make sure you do this event.
Don’t worry, you only need 80 Cavern Ore for one sword. From my experience you get average of 10 Cavern Ore/run. Make sure you get all the exploration points though !!!
Rough calculation: 16 energies x 8 runs = 128 Energies. The event last 4 days, but since I recommend you to farm cactuars, then you only have 3 days. So, 128 energies/3 = 43 energies/day, which is very small. If you want to get 2 or even 3, it’s still manageable.
You don’t need to craft the sword now, simply keep the ingredients and craft it later when you have time.
Like you can see that there are total of 8 Exploration Points. The last 3 are guarded by 3 bosses :). There are no treasures here, so simply take all the explorations points and head to the exit (3x exp).
All three bosses can’t be inflicted by all de-buffs from full break, but you can still de-buff them with “single” break. Example: if you use full break and then see the boss only inflicted by 2 debuff (ex: Atk and Spr), you can debuff defense and spirit by using armor and mental break.
1st Boss: Amoebozoa
This boss is not hard at all, and you won’t die against this one unless you’re really careless or maybe auto your battle.
Tips: This is where tent become handy, don’t move after defeating the first boss. Use tent if you think that your party needs Full HP and MP.Or you can save it after fighting the 2nd boss
2nd Boss Hill Gigas
3rd Boss: Ogre
Actually those 3 battles are not that hard, the only thing that makes them hard is your party running out of MP. So try not to go all out by using “-ga spells”, simply be patient and maintain your HP by using “-ra spell”. See my video to learn more tips to defeat the bosses.
