    I think I can honestly say this is the first fair dragon of the bunch. You are not limited to a mono-element squad either. Here is what I passively noted.

    1) Every 3 turns, he will do an AOE with massive damage, inflict paralysis, and massively drain your bb gauge and take about 25% of your OD gauge.

    2) Every 5 turns, he will massively heal for about 2-3% of his health. He will also gain mitigation for one turn and boost his attack (?).

    3) I am not sure when it was cast, but 3 times he used some calamity ability. It is stronger than the 3 turn one, but endurable with barrier and mana shield. Seems to be dangerous if occurring on a turn multiple of 3.

    4) After about 25% of his health is gone, he will occasionally boost his already high BC drop resist down to make it so you get nothing.

    5) After about 50% - 60% of his health is gone, he will gain all elements buff to one of his abilities.

    This fight has none of the unfun mechanics like: Hard Damage requirements, retaliations for using other elements than thunder, buff wipes, LS lock, EX skill/Sphere lock, and angel idol. Build a good squad with enough damage and survivability and you can win.

    To complement a bit on what @Rhithik said:

    Shion UBB spam is hard at the end of the battle because he will then cast every turn ( I think it was under 30%) the paralysis+bb drain+OD drain attack. Try to have a backup plan.

    Also, he did kill two units of mine. He killed one at the beginning because my defenses weren't set up (shouldn't have held on that fujin), and another near the end of the fight, which bypassed all my mitigations and defenses.

    Personally, i found that the most important thing in this fight is to have a good bb management. Gazolina is an excellent leader for bb management and defense.

    The team i used (crappy spheres, mostly the ones from the guilty gear collab and from the frontier gate , or other "free spheres" like that.).
    Gazolina (lead)
    Lauda
    Kira
    Mora
    Shion (UBB when i could. Thanks OD drain attack)
    Enki (friend)
    With this team, he was still doing a massive 1 damage every turn.

    And last thing, it's a looooooooooooooong fight.

    Are you guys shure he is not doing a LS lock? Cause I got paralyzed a lot though having Cobalt as lead.
    Did just one run so far and was killed around 22% health (72 turns) somehow out of nowhere (did Shion UBB method but will switch to a more offensive team next try)

    well, with my team, No LS/Ex/sphere lock. Gazolina took care of removing all status ailments. No idea.

    You guys are sure it's not caused by a fire or thunder element character ?

    I gave it another try with Gazo Lead + Enki Friend, Erza Utheria Surt Fina.

    It went super smooth until 30% HP. Then the OD gauge drain got too high too keep up Utheria UBB spam and with it my dmg output (OD drain is triggered every turn now) and also somehow my Fina got oneshot every turn.
    I will give it another try and put some dark OD fillers (Cosette / Galtier / Shion) back in.

    Maybe you are not allowed to have certain No. of the same Element?

    Ok did it :grinning:
    Switching Erza to Galtier helped a lot to maintain Utheria UBB spam. Nevertheless below 30% HP he kept oneshooting Fina (and once Galtier) every 2-3 turns. Luckily I had enough revives and a hero stone to finish him.

    THIS was a really enjoyable UC (especially compared to black dragon UC). With several tries and team optimisation its really doable.
    @gumi Elie @gumi Kazuo maybe u think about a nerf of the black dragon UC to make it similar fun :wink:

    Glad you liked it!
    Right now we don't intend to go back to tweak previous dungeons, but I understand what you mean.
