Brave Frontier RC4 Dreagar Guide

Brave Frontier RC4 Dreagar Guide by iiMahjong

Hello everybody~

So today Gumi released X1 missions for RC3 and RC4!

Everybody is wanting to get that sphere frog and free gems from RC4! BUT they run into Draegar.. and that mofo hits like a train!

I learned the following things about Draegar:

  • On turn 3, Draegar will cast a shield of 1M HP. Yes, you saw that correctly: 1 Million HP. Every 3 turns after, Draegar will recast his 1M HP shield.
  • Once the shield is cast, Draegar will use his Boundless (usually coincides with the 70% HP threshold).
  • He does HP threshold attacks at 70%, 50%, 30% and 10% HP
  • He strips your team of buffs and mitigation on turns 2 and 4
  • Normal attacks: 50% chance of attacking the lowest HP unit. 25% chance of attacking any unit with 50% or more BB gauge. 25% chance of attacking completely at random.
  • When battling again from either wiping or running away, Draegar will spam Boundless several times. (Reports suggest he’ll start rematches by throwing them all out one turn after another until he’s done as many as he’s passed HP thresholds.)
  • His skill’s damage modifiers suggest ATK down and Injury are only minimally effective.
  • His ultimate attack deals 450% damage, and his timer AoEs deal 300% and 220%, with a bunch of smaller ones thrown out by his arms every other turn.

TL;DR – Dreagar is damn near impossible to beat with just 1 life while soloing it.

From my own runs, I have witnessed the shield, and Draegar proceeded to wipe my entire team on the following turn.. Feeva, Kira, Kanon, Claire, Shera, and Colt friend = RIP. Once respawned and entered the battle again, the shield would be gone, but Draegar would spam 1-3 Boundless(es) after I attack, thus killing my team again! It’s a vicious cycle..

SO, HOW DO YOU BEAT THIS JERK?!

The key to beating Draegar is not so much the units, but the items you bring!

Note: Theory – Bringing a Crit team is probably the best. Still unsure whether Dreagar is Crit resistant :/

  • 3 Smoke Bombs
  • 1 Angel Idol
  • 2 Goddess Idols
  • filler -> Revive or Crescent Dews
  • filler -> Revive Lights

The Strategy

I would recommend bring a full party of 4! Although a party of 2 (theoretically) should be able to beat it.

  1. Fight Draegar until he uses his shield. Use 1 smoke bomb to escape the battle!
  2. Re-enter the battle and the shield should be gone. Use 1 Angel/Goddess Idol on 1 unit. SBB spam. He will proceed to wipe your team except for that one unit. Use 1 smoke bomb again!
  3. Revive/Heal up your units (or retreat to camp for an itemless heal/revive)
  4. Rinse and repeat steps 2 & 3.
  5. Once you run out of smoke bombs and Idols, you must rely on your 3 lives to kill Draegar. Do the usual SBB spam and die.

With 4 players’ life pool and 3 additional turns from items, you will be able to kill Draeger! It’s a bit tedious and time consuming, but it’ll get the job done! For the entire mission, it averages to about 15 mins per run.

I hope this helps a little~ Good luck!
