    [Boss] Adamant Beast Hellhound Renewal (Season 14)



    Use this current thread to discuss your boss experience with Adamant Beast Hellhound Renewal Season 14

    [Demon From Another World] Renewal Season 14 Begins!
    Duration: 2019/08/09 (Fri) maintenance until 2019/08/23 (Fri) maintenance

    Information for [Demon From Another World], which will be henceforth referred to as [Hellhound]

    ▼ Gate to Another World
    Henceforth referred to as the [Gate]

    The [Gate] can be accessed through the Quest screen.
    You can select which floor to challenge the [Adamant Beast Hellhound] from the [Gate].
    Bread and other resources are not required to sortie against [Hellhound].

    You can sortie all of your current parties against [Hellhound].
    If you have more than one partie formed, and your current party is KOed, your other parties can continue the battle with the current [Hellhound].
    The bottom right of the battle menu also has a [Party MENU] button where you can select a [Party CHANGE] button when it is clicked.

    Defeating [Hellhound] will yield Demon Materials, [Demon Souls], and other rewards.
    Demon Souls are consumed to upgrade your [Accessory], and collecting a certain amount will unlock [Demon Soul Rewards] from a list of set rewards.
    Demon Soul Rewards will reset at the end of the current period, but the total amount of Demon Souls you own will be carried forward to the next [Adamant Beast Hellhound].

    The [Gate] is accessible after clearing Volume 1 Chapter 4.

    ▼ Other World Power Stone
    You will receive 3x Power Stones every day, which will increase the Demon Soul reward amounts and drop chances when activated.
    ※ If you use the Power Stone and are defeated, they will still be consumed
    ※ 3x Power Stones are given out every day at 04:00 JST.

    ▼ Accessory From Another World
    Henceforth referred to as the [Accessory]


    One [Accessory] sleeps in the [Gate].
    The [Accessory] can be obtained after clearing the [3rd Floor] of [Hellhound].
    The [Accessory] can only be obtained once during the raid period.
    The [Accessory] can be upgraded using Demon Souls, Demon Soul Rewards, and other floor clear reward items.
    The [Accessory] can be equipped even during the raid period.
    The [Accessory] has a special lock and cannot be sold until after the raid period ends. (DON'T SELL IT)
    The [Accessory] can be upgraded even after the raid period ends, until the next period begins.

    [Parameters]
    The [Accessory] can be upgraded by consuming [Demon Souls] to increase its level and a chosen parameter.
    The [Accessory] also contains a special attack bonus, which increases based on its level.
    The attached special attack bonus has a type associated with the specific [Demon From Another World]. Upgrading parameters will not change the type itself.

    The [Reset] button can be used to reset the [Accessory] [Level], [Parameter], and [Special Effect].
    ※ The consumed [Demon Souls] used to upgrade the [Accessory] will not be refunded.

    [Bonus Stats and Shuffle]
    The item [Other World Ability Dice], henceforth referred to as [Dice] can be used to apply Bonus Stats to the [Accessory].
    The applied Bonus Stats can be Shuffled by using another [Dice].
    Shuffling the Bonus Stats results in a random 3 Stats.
    A certain amount of [Dice] can be used to keep one or two Bonus Stats while rerolling the last bonus stat.
    [Dice] can be obtained from floor rewards, and from Demon Soul Rewards.
    This feature is unlocked after clearing Floor 20.

    Lock Count: Consumed Dice
    0 Locked: 1 Dice
    1 Locked: 30 Dice
    2 Locked: 100 Dice

    [Adding Shine Badge Slots]
    The item [Other World Shine Treasure] can be obtained from [Hellhound] and used to apply Shine Badge slots to the [Accessory].
    [Treasure] can be obtained from floor rewards, and from Demon Soul Rewards.
    This feature is unlocked after clearing Floor 50.

    [Adding Special Abilities]
    Optional Special Abilities can be added to upgrade the [Accessory].
    Each [Accessory] has 3 slots that can be used for adding Special Abilities.
    Only the first slot is unlocked at the start, and Slots 2 and 3 unlock with increased levels.

    Special Abilities require the [Engraved Charms], [Demon Crystals], and [Demon Souls], as well as the [Materials] from the [Hellhound] to unlock.
    [Charms] can drop beginning at Floor 60.
    Certain Rare [Charms] can drop beginning at Floor 80.

    Special Abilities are effects that affect [all party members of the equipped employee].
    One accessory cannot have duplicates of the same Special Ability.
    Different accessories can stack their Special Ability effects.

    Slot Unlock: Accessory Level
    1: Start
    2: Lv 500
    3: Lv 650

    Adding a Special Ability to the Special Ability Slot requires [Charms], [Demon Crystals], and [Demon Souls], as well as the [Materials] from the [Hellhound] to unlock.
    Depending on the upgrade stage, the required rarity of the [Demon Crystals] will also change.

    ▼ Battle
    Victory and Defeat
    Victory:
    When [Hellhound]'s main body HP is 0
    Defeat:
    1. When all members of your party become incapacitated or
    2. When you [Retreat] from battle.

    ▼ Body and Parts
    [Hellhound] consists of a main body and parts.
    Defeating a [Part] will give you further rewards.
    Even if you do not defeat the [Parts] as long as you defeat the [Main Body] you will be granted victory.

    ▼ Party Skill
    Pressing the [部隊MENU] button at the bottom right during battle will enable the use of [Party Skills] at the cost of Party PW.
    These skills offer a large bonus to all those on the battlefield, but cannot be used every round.
    Party PW does not recover over time.

    Current Party Large Heal: 40 PW
    ATK/DEF/Critical Increase: 35 PW
    ATK/DEF/Critical Large Increase: 70 PW

    ▼ Floor Ranking
    There will be rankings based on the Floor Level and Round Count for defeating [Hellhound].
    In the case of defeating the same Floor Level [Hellhound], the one with the lower number of Rounds will be ranked higher.
    In the case of both the same Floor Level and Rounds, whoever defeated it first will be ranked higher.
    Rankings are updated after a certain amount of time.
    There are no rewards for rankings.

    Wind-type employees:


    There isn't a lot of single target Wind attackers, but I don't believe part-breaking fast is necessary for Hellhound compared to Gryphon and Dragon. There's a lot of full screen attackers which are pretty weak compared to the row/multi-3 attackers due to how they scale the damage modifiers lower.

    I think Siegrid EP3 is probably the strongest and should use the Storm Wing Ring if you have her. Of course, if she has low awakenings, someone else could be better. Having full awakening makes her a lot more reliable for damage than an Archer which depends on the debuff to be active, and Rogues don't even have a damage awakening ability.
    Libuse is quite good as well because she can focus on he head while also damaging the parts. You'll need someone on the party with debuffs though or you're losing out on a lot of damage.
    Charlotte is a very good tank/dps, but I wouldn't give her the ring since most people built DEF into them and she won't need it at all. Crusch can backline if you have her and lack backline options.
    If you're lucky enough to have EX Armonica, she should be pretty strong, especially if you have a powerful ATK based Ring and bring a source of DEF Down.
    Berengere and Onsen Sarah-Moon are both quite good to attack the head with their single hit at the end.

    If you're row attacking a lot, you might eventually just break all the parts and be left with the main body, and need single target to finish it off. Judita EP3 is basically the only wind option for single target, but it's very strong.

    There's also a lot of fairly good ★4s if you're a newer player without a lot of the ★5s. Maud, Fatis, Plulua are quite decent.


    A common theme for Hellhound seems to be a high stun proc on its earthquake line attack. You'll want a Ealice's pre-empt cleanse to clear it, or have a slow team with a fast Cleric, or just ignore it with Rose EP3/EX tanking.

    This makes Rose EP3 a good choice for the Light Ring since you won't waste damage, but Eliel to break the main body after the parts are down is very good too.



    Some things to keep in mind:
    Warrior Awakening:
    Increased Damage based on HP% remaining
    At full HP and 5/5 for a ★7, they gain +52.5% damage which is very high, but it's only 24.5% if they're 3/5
    At full HP and 5/5 for a ★6, they gain +45% damage which is still high

    Fighter Awakening:
    Increased ATK and DEF with each passing round
    At 5/5 for a ★7, it appears to be +8.5% on Round 1 with +3.5% every round capping out at +40% on round 10

    Ronin Awakening:
    Increased Critical damage
    At 5/5 for a ★7, they gain +70% damage on criticals, but only +35% at 3/5
    At 5/5 for a ★6, they gain +60% damage


    Archer Awakening
    Increased damage against enemies with debuffs
    At 5/5 for a ★7, they gain +39% for one debuff, +44% for two, +48.9% for three.
    More here:

    Rogue Awakening
    Increased chance to true evade with more actions
    Basically, the more turns that pass with a Rogue attacking, the higher chance they have to evade anything, including magic.
    After about 15 rounds (30 actions), they can basically evade anything I believe.

    How many slots you can get for this accessory? I didn't notice where to get the 3rd slot like in previous boss.

    @oryxlynx The previous two bosses gave 3 slots because they gave out a slot item as compensation for some bugs. It doesn't look like we'll be getting one this time around. It should just be 2 slots normally right now, but we might get one from maintenance as a gift or whatever.



    As expected, the prevailing top strategy is to have Rogues become invincible through their awakening trait and dodge everything and just take 100+ rounds to kill the boss.

    @kyoshiros Yes you can reset the stat, but the points won't be refund.

    Also they already nerf the rogue dodge everything from raid boss strat on the last update, rogue can't have 100% dodge anymore.
