Shaggy-dog Story 2/4 Pineapple Set
  • Wave 1 - You’re in control of Riki this time and up against two Lv 36 Plasma Deinos and one Lv 37 Terra Orluga. The key to this Time Attack is to make use of Riki’s DoTs such as Lurgy, Freezinate and Bitey Bitey in that order and spread these around the enemies. Not only will it help Riki keep Aggro (as the defacto Tank of this group) but you’ll also be working on the other enemies while focusing on your current target. If the opportunity arises, make use of Sneaky although this may be unlikely with Riki as the tank. Note that due to the skills that Riki has learnt, you can use Yoink! on the Orluga to weaken it once his Talent Gauge is full.

  • Wave 2 - This is a lot tougher as you’re up against an Inferno Deinos, Bosque Hode and a Lupus Ferris all at Lv 38. The same rules apply here but focus the entire party on one target at a time. So long as you avoid using Chain Attacks (too time consuming), Roly-Poly and Bedtime, you should have no issues achieving the target time.

(1 of 3) Avoid using both Bedtime and Roly-poly
