Strategy for Main Tank floors (F7, M5):

Floor 7:
  1. Aggro Management: Engage enemies first, keeping their focus on you. During the boss phase, always keep Necron on you. Use the Jingle Bell ability to argo the Boss.
  2. Positioning: Stay between enemies and teammates to shield them.
  3. Healing: Use healing orbs/florids regularly to sustain health.
Master Floor 5:
  1. Boss Phase:
    • Stand in the outer circle of the center block, Aggro the undead to keep them focused on you, allowing the team to DPS Livid​.
  2. Positioning:
    • Use “Castle of Stone” when livids spawn, then move back down, utilizing life-stealing to stay alive. This helps in getting Livid stuck in the portal for a quicker kill​​.
  3. Bossfight Strategies:
    • Two approaches: one where the team positions in the stands, aiding in survival while DPSing Livids; the other where the team descends to the arena’s middle, ice-sprays the Livids, and kills the right Livid, more suited for late-game players​
