    You can view your [Saved Accessory] in the Gate to Another World page.

    [Accessory Choice]
    After growing your second accessory, you can choose to either keep your Saved Accessory or your current Accessory.

    Your Saved Accessory will be given to you after the end of the Boss event. It will appear in your item box after your first log in after the event.
    It cannot be equipped during the event.
    If at the end of the event you have both a Saved Accessory and a Growing Accessory, only one can be chosen.

    2. Level a new accessory
    3. Choose between the new and saved accessories!

    Until you retreat or are defeated, or defeat the final demon, you cannot change your growth type!

    Power

    Vitality

    Magic

    Speed

    Holy

    Technique




    Boss Victory Campaign:
    Defeat the boss a certain number of times to receive presents

    Personal
    20x [2x Shinestone]
    30x [Experience Palace Ticket]
    40x [Fairy Envelope]
    50x [3x Shinestone]
    70x [[Limited] Fairy's Sweet Sake]
    100x [[Limited] Black Fairy Envelope]


    Global
    50000x [5x Shinestone]
    100000x [Experience Palace Ticket]
    250000x [Fairy Envelope]
    500000x [10x Shinestone]
    750000x [[Limited] Fairy's Sweet Sake]
    1000000x [[Limited] Black Fairy Envelope]


    To determine the number of levels you'll skip
    1~2T = +5L
    3~4T = +4L
    5~7T = +3L
    8~10T = +2L
    11+T = +1L




    This is the armor that increases the chance of Fighter/Soldier/Cleric to be attacked, and reduces the chance for other classes.
    This allows a character without a magic attack to tank, while allowing Magicians to avoid being hit. It is not 100% effective though, more like 90~95%.

    ★4+ Employees with Light Skills:
    In addition to this, Archers gain their Anti-air effect against this boss so they are effective even without elemental advantage.


    Also, Rean has a good exclusive skill for this fight


    Eliel will likely be the MVP and Miriam will be quite strong as well compared to everyone else.

    I went pretty far this time with Michaela tanking and Nona behind. She zombie the attackers. Managed to reach boss level 40s, but Nona got instant death, and it's over. Definitely got farther than previous Puppy boss. Quite happy but still much to learn.

    One thing was interesting, as my main parties got wiped out and it proceeding to wipe out the rest. My last party was full of 3 stars rogues, I was leveling them up with battlefield. It was funny they not even wearing amazing weapon or armors, but they were dodging the Griff attack like a pro, Miss Miss Miss for few turns. It makes me proud they can get few hits on the boss. :)
