[Discussion+Strategy+Info] Savior of Academia
#1
Stage Info:
https://towerofsaviors.fandom.com/wiki/Savior_of_Academia

Must-haves:
1) A team that has passive CD reduction (to allow use of skills by round 2, at the latest) and/or passive race rune generation (to prevent being Frozen)
2) A team that can survive ambush damage of 18,225 (non-Phantom)
3) A member with controlling skill
4) Dodge cards/ Effect clearers/ craft that delays enemy CD

Nice-to-haves:
1) Board exploders/ enchanters
2) Time tunnel cards/ cards that ignore burning runes

This Ultimate stage is particularly troublesome and quite "tailored" (kinda reminds you of Ultimate stages during Collab patches). Wave 1 alone (or in combination with Wave 2) closes off a lot of team options. There's little wiggle room for error. Wave 4B is probably the only wave where you can stall CDs freely. Other than that, most of the waves are deadly if you're not careful. Good luck!

3* Achievement (Same Leader/Ally, All Elf, 5 Attributes)
Jade + Bhairava & Nandi/Amber*/SR Daji*/Nyx* + Jade + Aggressive Pique Seal (or any craft that can delay enemy CD):




It's a matter of mixing and matching team members to achieve a rainbow team while having each member have a designated role for the stage. Bhairava & Nandi + Daji seem to be the safest options for members though:
*Bhairava & Nandi is tricky to replace but you can try cards to produce Elf runes (which cannot be Frozen) for Wave 2 like Wang Zhaojun, Water Denise or VR Divergence Saruman.
*Amber can be replaced by a full board enchanter or exploder for an easier time on Wave 3A like PR Diablo, Cornflower, Water Denise, Opal or Yao Hou.
*Daji can be replaced by other time tunnel cards for an easier time on Wave 4 like Li Ji. However, she's probably better replaced by a card that will allow you to survive the hit on Wave 5B like Diamond or remove debuff to allow immediate attack like Yan Yuhuan.
*Nyx can be replaced by other controlling cards like Sapphire, Ruby, PR Magrence, or PR Isabel.

2* Achievement (Same Leader/Ally, 5 Attributes)
Qing Gui + PR Copper Bullet/Azathoth*/Zhao Yun*/Fire Denise* + Qing Gui + Aggressive Pique Seal (or any craft that can delay enemy CD):




*Azathoth can be replaced by other Dark Dragons like PR Wawel or PR Sunnie but Azathoth has overall better utility and does make things easier in Wave 4 if you don't have Bahamut to ignore the Burning runes.
*Zhao Yun can be replaced by other Water Dragons like SR Ao Guang, Lernaean or Kukulkan but you do need to use Khaos craft on wave 2 to stand a chance against overheal.
*Denise can be replaced by other Fire Dragons like Bahamut or Igneel, especially if you're confident you can stack Dark runes adequately in Wave 3A. Special mention to VR Refinement Seth since he can explode away all Masked runes in Wave 3A.

Other Teams:
RinLen (1*):




Aria (1*):




Goodnight Lullaby - Hatsune Miku (1*):




Zero/Suzuko (1*):




Diamond/Jade (0*):




Wu Zetian (1*):




Ying Zheng (1*): 




Wukong (1*):

This applies to all Race runes. They prevent runes from being Frozen, assuming the rune is already a race rune before the Frozen effect takes place. This is the reason why full-board conversion to Dragon runes by Copper Bullet and to Machina runes by Virginia work against Wave 1B.

Take note that once the runes are already Frozen, you can't "thaw" them by converting them to Race runes (mainly because Frozen runes can't be converted.

TL;DR: Adding Race effect to runes, prevents said runes from being Frozen but you can't thaw already Frozen runes by adding Race effect (ie conversion to Race runes).

For the record, I did not like this stage one bit.

For the record, I agree with you, and so do the whole world.

Gone are the days when the wave 1 mobs are just minions with x2 attack skills doing less than 10,000 damage. I blame YZ. XD
