Striker and Free Spirit Characters Only!

Yet another Class restricted quest has come to Extra Island. This quest challenges you to bring out your best Striker and Free Spirit characters. We looked at what we had to work with and were quite pleased as there were plenty of characters with ATK focused Specials to really give the enemy a nice fight!

But of course, to be able to use those Specials we need to plan carefully and charge along the way, which is key to victory in this quest. Unfortunately, there are many obstacles that prevent you from doing this. So let’s go over the points you need to be prepared for first!

Kid Franky may appear as a Rare Boss in Battles 2 to 5

Cutty Flam, the young version of Franky, may appear as a Rare-Boss somewhere along the way. He’s quite threatening as his preemptive Victory Salute will inflict 2,000 damage and if his HP gets below half, he’ll raise his attack power. Crews with low HP should be careful cause if this battle draws out, it could mean game over! Forget about charging your Specials here and take him out as quick as possible!

Cutty Flam here to knock you out!

Young Iceburg in Battle 6

We’ll meet the shipwright in training, Iceburg, as a Mid-Boss in Battle 6. He’ll start off by sabotaging our slots and change them into [TND]/[BLOCK]. His crew can be quite annoying as they’ll Bind your crew members they’re weak against for two turns. It’s best to get rid of them before that happens!

Also, Iceburg will do 4,000 damage with his normal attack and use Ardent Artisan’s Soul when he is near death, preventing him from being KO’d for three turns!

In Battle 7 we face the head honcho of Tom’s Workers, Tom. He’ll use Counter Stance! as a preemptive move, take the damage you inflict on him and throw it back at you when it’s his turn. You might be able to take him down before he counters if you can do enough damage but if you fall short prepare for a lot of pain!

Tom’s preemptive “Counter Stance!”

Tom’s preemptive “Counter Stance!”

Thanks to our clever ‘MISS’ing, we survived his Intense Counter Punch! Now all we had to do was throw all our Specials at the enemy and take him down for good!

Or so we thought…

Five turns had passed and Tom began “The Launch!”

And we thought we were going to win…

And we thought we were going to win…

We were suddenly faced with the Seafarer Launch, and besides striking us with amazement from such beautiful craftsmanship, Tom also boosted his ATK and DEF! We barely had any time to blink before we realized our ship was capsized after that! The most important thing you have to watch out for in the battle with Tom is not his counter, but the dreaded “Launch!”

The Miraculous Launch!

Our Free Spirit Crew!

Even though we lost, if we use our Specials correctly and don’t make any mistakes, we just may be able to defeat Tom with our current crew. Let’s go over each character’s role carefully and try again!

Our Free Spirit Crew!

Our Free Spirit Crew!

We chose Calgara Great Shandia Warrior as Captain and Friend Captain to support our Free Spirit crew. Not only does his Type work well against Tom, the reduction for Special charge time is much needed in this quest. With his Special, Great Warrior’s Spear, giving Free Spirits an extra 1.3x boost to ATK for one turn, Monkey D. Luffy Halloween Monster’s 1.2x ATK boost to all Types, and Master Escape Artist Bentham Mr. 2 Bon Clay’s ATK boost of 1.25x for Fighters for two turns plus slot changing ability, we can surely achieve victory in the battles ahead!

To deal with Iceburg’s [BLOCK] slots in Battle 6, we brought along Jerry Cipher Pol No. 6. Finally, changing his own slot to [STR] and being able to move slots, we went with Franky Frankenstein as our 6th member.

We set off to recruit the legendary shipwright!

It’s of most importance that we go along charging our Specials on the way, but we need to maintain enough HP to handle Cutty Flam in case he appears. Manage your HP carefully while you charge as the Daimyo Turtles will chip away at it leaving you vulnerable.

Watch your HP at all times!

Watch your HP at all times!

Use Jerry’s Screw Drop Kick to deal with the [BLOCK] slots from Iceburg’s Earnest Artisan’s Soul in Battle 6. Take out his crew, then carefully deal with Iceburg. As long as he doesn’t get a turn in on the brink of death, there should be nothing to be afraid of. It’s OK to loose HP here, so plan how you defeat him right and don’t mess up!

Don’t let him use his Ardent Artisan’s Soul!

Don’t let him use his Ardent Artisan’s Soul!

Put your tools away Tom, it’s time to retire!

Revenge!

Revenge!

Do all you can and throw whatever you have at Tom within the three turns. Your goal is to defeat him before he uses his counter!

Tom’s in for a world of hurt!

Tom’s in for a world of hurt!

Just when we thought we put him away for good he goes and heals himself for nearly 70% using his Tough Body skill! We did NOT see that coming!!

Tough Body?! Well, here we go again…

Tough Body?! Well, here we go again…

And as one could expect after 5 turns had passed, the spectacular “Seafarer Launch” had been initiated. But it didn’t save him this time! His HP was already in the danger zone and with just a push and a shove more we attained victory!

Git-outta-heaa!

Git-outta-heaa!

We weren’t able to recruit Tom this time, sadly. But we did get Iceburg on our crew! And a new Dream Ship title!

Iceburg and the “Dream Ship” title!!

So what other crews can lead you to victory in this battle?

If you want to try the Striker route, put Aokiji Ice Man」 as your Captain and Friend Captain for a nice boost to ATK and HP. We also recommend taking Blamenco the Mallet along to change [DEX] and [QCK] slots to [STR]. Locking slots in place, take Paulie Dock One Foreman/Mast Specialist and to boost the effects of slots and guarantee certain destruction for Tom and all his junky ships, Maelstrom Spider Squard.
