Completing Volcanic Grotto grants access to Road to Paladia.
Unlocked by completing each area of the Old Mine at least once.
Monsters with Thorns/Shield are useful here, but when used against you, use magic attacks with high damage.
|Monsters:||Adm. Eagle|| Triglodyte ||Blood Knight|
|Odd Couple x2||Wolf Rider||Headless|
|Items:||Battle Axe||Light Bombs||Long Sword|
|Brutal Boots||Boomerang||Brittle Ointment|
Melee only except for the Admiral. Use Shield or/and Thorns. Blood Knight / Headless is easy prey for your mages.
|Monsters:||Mister Frozen||Cyclops Outcast||Triclops|
|Desert Striker||Lost Explorer x2||Headless|
|Items:||Battle Axe||Fur Armor x2||Crushing Hammer|
|Light Bombs||Long Sword||Throwing Dagger|
Be careful. Don't let the AI get too much monsters on the board, or else you're doomed.
|Monsters:||Plasmic Ooze||Fiery Ooze x3||Lava Ooze x3|
|Items:||Spiked Armor||Spiked Leggings||Long Spear|
|Long Sword x3||Courage Pendant|| |
Thorns and Reach = Ouch. Your melee position is under constant attack. Use a Flying non-melee with Armor or a high-shielded passive (ideally with Thorns) and let your back row do their job.
|Monsters:||Cyclops Outcast x2||Headless x2||Kukulkan|
|Queen o' Clean||Cleaning Fairy|| |
|Items:||Long Sword||Chain Mail||Hunter's Bow|
|Light Bombs x2||Dragon's Tear||Brittle Ointment|
With a little (much) luck, several armors, Counter and the occasional assistance from your usually not very long living back row, a Blu'jutsurtle can do pretty well here. The flying cards are very annoying. A well protected card with Thorns prevents Thrash damage and helps quite a bit. Armor also helps, as the AI has lots of damage dealing items.
|Monsters:||Cyclops Outcast x2||Triclops x3||Coldfoot x2|
|Items:||Long Spear x2||Light Bombs||Heal Flute|
|Charger||Chain Mail||Dragon's Tear|
Only Melee cards, but everything deals at least 30 damage. Except for Thrash and Light Bombs, your back row is safe, so keep your Melee healthy. Get rid of the card using Long Spear or perish.
|Monsters:||Blood Knight||Adm. Eagle||Cleaning Fairy x2|
|Ninja Fox||Dark Drums||Tridentite|
|Items:||Chain Mail||Fur Armor||Heal Flute|
|Brutal Boots||Healing Vial x2||Medusa Shield|
Kill the Blood Knight and this level becomes much easier. Magic probably works best, but enough armor and decent Melee damage + back row support works, too. If you have one, put a Shield20 with enough HP card against it, but watch out for equipment and the ranged cards picking on your back row. NOTICE: opportunity can be incredibly useful, especially if you can hit all cards w/o armor in one hit.
|Mister Frozen||Blood Knight x2||Butterbat|
|Items:||Battle Axe||Crushing Hammer||Hunter's Bow|
|Chain Mail x2||Heal Staff (useless)||Healing Vial|
It's vital to build up and/or keep the computer from building up. Musculard first usually means you can't kill him, your first card will be destroyed and he will constantly attack your melee position. Too much dodging from Kukulkan can make winning rather difficult.
Sometimes, the computer does not want to / can't play a card on turn 1 and one card is dumped. This can give you a decisive advantage.
|Monsters:||Amber Dragon||Kukulkan||Cyclops Outcast|
|Adm. Eagle||Acolyte||Tux Shooter x2|
|Poison Dagger x2||Heal Staff||Dragon's Tear|
Probably only rarely beatable with just Level 1/2 cards without farming Crystals for more Boosters / EVO Crystals.
Get some better cards / EVO Crystals if you are stuck. Early Dragon is rather bad, especially if it equips an armor. To be able to win, your first card played has to survive (and ideally, kill the computer's first card). If that's not possible, consider not playing a card, you might just lose equipment and can play 2 cards / card with equipment at once next round. Acolyte and Sniperoo in the first rounds are a rare, but joyful opportunity to build up and crush the opponent. Good luck. NOTICE: farming this area is not recommended unless you have nowhere else to go, don't like swarms, and is absolutely stuck on a stony shore.
