Special Conditions: Stats Change Depending on Class

The special conditions for this quest boost ATK for Driven characters and HP for Powerhouse characters. Let’s take advantage of these class-specific perks and build a crew around Driven/Powerhouse characters!

A Slasher crew with high HP that includes both Driven and Powerhouse characters

Here is the crew we came up with to take on the top brass of the ‘Golden Lion Pirates!’

Slashers with high HP

Slashers with high HP

We chose Donquixote Doflamingo Warlord of the Sea as Captain and Friend Captain. Their Captain Abilities together grant a 4x ATK boost, as well as an HP boost, and since they’re Driven characters, they get an extra boost in ATK thanks to the quest’s special conditions. We can also use Overheat twice, which increases the effects of slots and should prove very useful later on in the quest.

For crewmates, we chose Enraged Arlong Shark On Tooth and Mr. 1 Human Sword, as their types are effective against this quest’s Boss, Dr. Indigo. Arlong has amazing stats as a Slasher character, and Mr. 1 can reduce damage taken while boosting ATK, so we can expect good things in the battles ahead with them on our crew!

You’ll need a PSY-type character with a high ATK to take on Commander Scarlet, who appears in Battle 5. For our last character, we chose Humming Swordsman Brook just in case we find ourselves in a bind and need some help with HP recovery. He’ll halve the enemies DEF for two turns, too, giving us that extra leeway we need in the battles to come!

And just to raise our chances of victory a little bit more, we had Doflamingo’s Special at around level 5. It always helps to have the levels of your other characters’ Specials as high as you can, too!

Watch out for the animals along the way as they have high ATK!

The Turtles and Pigs in this quest have both very high ATK and HP. So, plan on taking a few hits from the Wild Zombies or Bodyguards and get your Specials charged by Battle 7!

Don't be fooled. These animals pack a mean punch!

Rare-Boss Billy

Billy may appear as a Rare-Boss somewhere along the way. He’ll preemptively raise the effects of your slots, making the battles ahead just a bit easier for you. Although, by doing this, the effect from your Doflamingo’s Overheat Special will be rendered ineffective, so depending on who you bring along, this may not be to your advantage!

We know you're trying to help us, but...

We know you’re trying to help us, but…

The dinosaurs in Battle 3 are quite beastly and do over 9,000 damage with just one attack! And don’t plan on charging your Specials on the Daimyo Turtle here, as he barely has any HP. It’s best to take a hit from the henchmen and charge that way.

Take down the dinosaurs first!

Commander Scarlet appears in Battle 5

You’ll meet one of the top-ranking Golden Lion Pirates in Battle 5 by the name of Commander Scarlet. As a preemptive attack, he’ll raise his DEF for 2 turns and heal for 100,000 HP! Work on healing and adjusting your slots until his buffs wear off, and then unleash a barrage of attacks to make the battle short and sweet. Also, this is not the time to use your Specials, so do your best to save them!

Attacks will barely do a scratch for the first 2 turns...

There are a couple patterns for Battle 6 where you’ll see either Sea Horses or Lapahns. Whichever enemies appear, just make sure you don’t lose any HP and defeat them before they get the chance to hurt you!

Specials are charged so end this quick!

Specials are charged by now so end this quick!

Dr. Indigo and Scarlet in Battle 7!

Dr. Indigo and Commander Scarlet are waiting for us in Battle 7! Actually, there are 2 patterns for the Boss battle here, with the other one having Dr. Indigo and three buffed-up dinosaurs. When it’s just Indigo and Scarlet, Indigo will change up your slots, while Scarlet will boost his DEF for 2 turns and use his HP revovery ability, as he did in Battle 5. One thing to note here is that Scarlet’s DEF buff only works on himself, while his recovery ability heals both him and Indigo!

Meet the top brass!

Meet the top brass!

You’ll want to finish off Indigo first, and leave Scarlet until later due to his annoying DEF buff. Since our Slots are in pretty bad condition from the get-go, simply attack for the first turn to get rid of those bad slots.

On the second turn, unleash Mr. 1 and Doflamingo’s Specials to adjust and buff your slots, as well as boost your ATK. If you’re lucky with slot placement, you should be able to get rid of Indigo here!

But beware, if Indigo’s HP falls below half, he’ll use his Special and inflict around 13,000 damage, while paralyzing your whole crew! Refrain from any half-hearted attacks here, and make sure you don’t fall victim to his Special!

 Put Dr. Indigo away for good!

Put Dr. Indigo away for good!

Scarlet won’t use his Special as long as he’s not on the verge of death, making him a comparatively easy opponent. Use the rest of your Specials here and send him back to the jungle!

Heal up and finish the job!

And the top brass of the Golden Lion Pirates is no more!

Another pattern for Battle 7

Let’s quickly talk about the other pattern for Battle 7 that was not covered above. In that one, we are faced with 3 dinosaurs, along with Dr. Indigo. There’s no change in his slot juggling move and that can’t really be helped, but what really has us worried here is how fast those dinosaurs attack!

Dr. Indigo and his...experiments?

Dr. Indigo and his…experiments?

We don’t want to get ganged up on by the enemy here, so let’s get rid of the 3 dinos first! You might only be able to lower their HP on the first turn, so make sure that you’ve gotten rid of them by the second!

Depending on how lucky you are with your slots, it’ll be close, but if you’ve gotten Indigo’s HP down close to halfway and then use your Specials, you could be victorious here. If your STR characters didn’t get good slots, you may have a pretty rough time!

Know when to launch your Specials!

So what other crews can lead you to victory in this battle? If you want to go with the Slasher crew, like the one discussed above, you can try adding Roronoa Zoro Master Swordsman Disciple, who gives a 1.75 boost to ATK or Shanks Black Clad Emperor, who can lower the enemies’ DEF to 0.

For a Powerhouse crew, put Sanji Chef of Love as your Captain and Rob Lucci: Six Powers Cipher Pol No. 9, Hack Revolutionary Army or Maelstrom Spider Squard as crewmates.
