Hey folks!

A bunch of people have been complaining about the Artamiel stage in TOA lately. Most veterans probably just blazed through it, but I can see newer players struggling. My only advice is to use the monsters that helped you through TOA previously, because really, Artamiel’s buff only makes him hit harder. It doesn’t change the overall strategy for him. The key is having lots of CC to keep the other monsters down, and to bring helpful debuffs like Attack debuff, defense debuff, and glancing hits. Monsters like Aria, any of the Taoists, etc are really good here. Having a defense buff also helps with survival, so Basalt, Talc, etc are also useful.

Of course, I’m mostly talking about my approach to the TOAH version, but newer players can use the same principle for Normal. In terms of F2P monsters, Vero is good for CC and tank, while Belladeon is good for heals and defense debuff. Mav is also really good, as is Baretta. Spectra is good as well. And if runes are an issue for you (you really don’t need much for TOAN), then use it as a sign that you should farm runes more.

And really, Artamiel is the cover boy for the game. If he wasn’t great, then why have him representing the SW?
