how can i get an SSS ranking in a nest runs especially manti nest?
i tried partying with strong people but S is the highest rank we got
i also tried opening the chests and waiting for the next batch of golems to get more points but still no luck
the only way i get SSS is when i run solo.
When you do dungeon runs, at the end you'll see that there are quite a few criterias that contribute to the total point. Such criterias include time of dungeon run and combos. The 'combos' criteria contributes more point than the dungeon run time criteria. Hence, it's best to focus on combos rather than fast dungeon runs. However if you take too long to finish the nest run your score will also drop as fater run time, higher points. Moreover, the longer you do the dungeon, the more chances you have to receive damage from the monsters which decreases your points. It is extremely hard to balance between time and combos. I myself haven't seen anybody got SSS, my best is SS in a group. Oh and the difficulty of getting a higher rank increases with the amount of party members you have, that's also another reason why you have only gotten SSS when doing it solo
AFAIK, only the highest combo counts in the added score (basing from stage-end info). Other things you can do:
- Shield breaks (time an SA breaking skill when an enemy blocks using a shield)
- Destroying breakables (AoEs/range skills makes this easy)
- Looting (preferrably with a pet, since manually looting takes a lot of time)
- Chaining skills
- Aerial combos (launch enemy -> juggle, like Tekken )
Basically, anything you do that gets a note popping up near the score (rightside of the screen) during the dungeon run. I recommend shield breaks, they seem to add a lot if accumulated.
