    I just summoned 5* Pamela and since the 3rd year celebration began last month, I put Summoner mode on the back burner.

    I think I remember everyone saying that the first map is a piece of cake with Pamela. Am I remembering that correctly?

    Pamela is still going strong even in map 2. (she's also seen a lot of use in one of the map 2 ex dungeons)

    Thanks, I wasn't sure if it was Pamela or not. I have her at level 80 with an Occult Treasure. I just have to level up my thunder summing arts.

    Well, before the 3rd year celebration I had gotten to Elevated Station in Central Block on the first map but couldn't get past it.

    Just tried it with Pamela, still can't get past that boss. What am I doing wrong and what exactly makes Pamela EZ mode?

    Talking about that thunder boss? Yeah, he's a prick.

    I highly recommend running an :earth: summoner against him, even if it's not one of your primary elements. (if you want, I could lend a hand and color my hair green for a little while.)
    -----------------
    As for why Pamela's so good, it's because she's one of the only units out there with a defense conversion buff and BC/HC drop on a Brave Burst. (really amps up survivability)

    Agreed on both counts, but just to add to that second part, she also gives a strong defense buff. So between the atk->def and def, you can just run sword/axe and still have phenomenal defense, which is a pretty big deal for grinding and bosses alike since you don't necessarily have to rely on def buff buddies.

    So I leveled up my Thunder Arts to level 8 and my Summoner level is 21. Am I high enough to take the boss?

    My Earth Arts are only level 2, it won't affect Pamela's stats or BB if I switch to Earth type?

    Also Henshen thanks for the offer, I'm going to wait until the FF collaboration is over, still farming for that Courage Aegis, but I'll leave a post here once I am ready.

    - I've seen people take on the boss without grinding, so you should be able to tackle it. (may require heavy usage of items/LS spheres)

    - Off-element units do not suffer performance penalties, as summoning arts only pertain to that particular element. (ex. Light units will retain the stats from lvl 21 :light: arts even if your summoner is Dark with only lvl.9 :dark: arts.) While you do get bonus element xp for having matching colors, for difficult fights feel free to switch it up to your advantage so you can progress.

    Pamela helped me breeze through the second map. Only thing to be wary of is status ailment since she doesn't cleanse. Make sure you have the right items before diving in.

    With EZ Pamela, bring Bolt Stones and run your summoner with either an axe or sword. You should only opt for a spear if you have trouble maintaining BB every 3 turns and need to alternate. Or if you have a decent spear level. Same thing goes for your summoner friend.

    As mentioned above, the only problem I could see with un-Pamela EZ mode is if you are overwriting her defense buff with a mediocre defense buff from a low weapon level. Try to use her after your summoner and see if that helps.

    Thanks for the advice. I forged some bolt stones and once I finish farming for the Courage Aegis (since Gilnea is gone), I'll go back to Summoner mode and give it a try.

    Well another status cleanser will probably work just as well. I just used Mira since I wanted to go mono thunder to reduce damage for the boss since it hits lik a truck at times

    I just don't get it. Pamela does absolutely nothing for my squad. I took your advice and used bolt stones and used Pamela's BB last AND used a thunder element friend who was level 56. Fifty-freakin-six!

    Still the boss whipped the floor with me. I don't get how Pamela is EZ mode unless you mean it makes it easier for the boss to curb stomp.

    Things to note:
    -He does a buff wipe AOE every 5 turns
    -After turn 5 make sure that either Pam's or a spear friend have their BB gauge filled up so u can immediately use it in order to get the def buff back
    -he does another AOE at 60% and 30%(guard that turn)
    -Just make sure to immediately put up the def buff back up after every buff wipe and u should be fine

    I just said screw it and spent a gem to clear it. It always happens that way, I follow walkthroughs and use the exact units and stradegies they say will make the boss a cake walk and I still get slaughtered by the third round. Maybe my units are knock offs or not as good as everyone else's.

    I'm not even thinking of taking on the ex boss when my Pamela can't even survive the first map boss without gemming.

    May need to raise :thunder: arts a bit, but the main problem was the confusion of bosses.

    Just remember to utilize type advantage when you can, as that's the original mitigation. (unless the boss has elemental retyping, in which case avoid weakness)

    I for my Pam, I used the VC and growth device and I fine for map 1 and only died a couple times in map 2 with a low :thunder: level. The EWD null is really nice.
