I. Dungeon Details

Raid Beast Type: Light
Target Rating: A+, S, SS, SSS (depending on your total damage)

Drops:

  • Runes (Fight, Determination, Enhance, Accuracy, Tolerance)
  • Enchanted Gems and Grindstones
  • Shiny Light Crystals
  • Condensed Magic Crystals
  • Pure Magic Crystals
  • Rune Piece, Rainbowmon, MS, Summoning stone, Shapeshifting Stone

*Note: It is important to defeat the Rift Beast rather than settle for a mediocre run since it gives you more amount of drops and makes your farming efficient. Saves time and energy!

 

II. Light Beast Overview

First let’s look at the Light Beast skill. It is essential to understand the mechanics behind each move so that you can properly create a strategic team against the boss.

Light Sweep:
Becomes enraged whenever an enemy gains a turn. Attacks all enemies 2 times. Greatly increases the damage proportionate to the number of times the Beast becomes enraged and the rage effect will reset after the attack.

 

Light Distortion:
Attacks all enemies 3 times with a giant roar and creates the Distorted Shield. The HP of the shield will increase every time the Light Distortion is used. Distortion Shield: A shield that decreases the received damage and increases the inflicted damage. It shares the damage inflicted on the Light Beast and substantially decreases the inflicted damage when receiving multiple hits. The Beast’s attacks will become stronger according to the number of the remaining HP of the shield.

*Note: This is the Light Beast’s signature skill. The key here is to bring hard hitting single attack units (Sigmarus, Lyn, Xing Zhe, MHW etc.). The 3rd phase is very tricky since you must bring the boss near half HP before it casts the 2nd light distortion. Unlike other Rift beasts, 1 sustain unit is enough here.

*Tip: Units that scale damage based on HP are recommended! Bring mostly single hit damage dealers + 1 healer (Colleen/Chasun/Hwahee). 

 Thorn of Despair:
Attacks the enemies in the frontline 2 times with a sharp thorn. The damage increases substantially as the target’s Defense decreases. This attack will target the backline if there are no enemies left in the frontline.

*Tip: you can minimize the damage by placing monsters with high DEF in the frontline (Colleen with DEF stats, Trevor, Xing Zhe, etc.)

 Shining Rageful Breath:
Removes all beneficial effects on all enemies and attacks them 6 times with light breath.

 Twisted Body (Passive):
Weakens the effect that inflict damage proportionate to the HP with a twisted power and gains immunity against all harmful effects. The immunity against all harmful effects will be removed during the Groggy State. Additionally, increases the damage dealt to and received from Dark Monsters by 50% each.

 

III. Why farm Rift Beasts?

This game content is more for mid to late-game players. Since the latest game update, it is now a growing popularity to farm Rift Beasts in crafting Homunculus and new generation runes, gems and grindstones (Fight, Determination, Enhance, Accuracy, Tolerance).

The rune requirement is quite high, but most importantly you need the right team of monsters for every Rift Beast because each has its own unique attack type and weaknesses.

 

 

IV. Getting Started

Leader Skill

Attack power > Crit Rate > Def > HP > Speed

Use Crit Rate lead if your nukers’ CR is below 75%, otherwise it defeats the purpose of landing high damage output even with high attack power. Def lead helps frontline to survive better than HP lead. Speed lead is a disadvantage if you have squishy units since the Light Beast becomes enraged whenever your units gets a turn.

Unit Recommendations

Awakened Colleen Summoners War Colleen

She is a good sole-unit sustain and gives a 3-turn attack increase buff on your team. Aside from her low cooldown 3rd skill, she spams whenever it’s ready allowing perma attack buff on your team.

  • Rune Set

Violent / Guard or Energy or Revenge

*Can also use non-Violent set (to prevent steal turns on your nukers during boss groggy state) recommended only when your team survivability is very stable

SPD / HP% / HP% or DEF%

  • Minimum Stats

SPD: 180 (should be the fastest unit on your team so she applies the buff before your nukers attack)

HP: 30k

DEF: 800

*Stats not mentioned are negligible and of little importance 

  • Position

Frontline (w/ 800+ def) else, Backline

VII. Summary and Conclusion

Damage per turn is the key stat in clearing Light Beast. Unlike other dungeons where you need speed or sustain, this requires massive damage from each of your nukers turn to remove the Distorted Shield asap. 3rd boss phase is very crucial because your team should bring the boss HP by half before it casts 2nd light distortion, else it will be hard to sustain the heals from damage and Light Beast will hit harder with its shield still active. Meanwhile, it is disadvantageous to speed up your turns because it will enrage the boss and give him more attack power per unit turn. Units that scale damage based on enemy HP are recommended (Lyn, Jamire, etc) since they bring more damage output.

Aside from the rare ones, units that shine in this dungeon are Wind and Fire Homunculus, Trevor, Theomars, Karl, Xiao Lin and other LD nb3 units like Darion and Lyn. Just keep the minimum HP and DEF requirements for frontline units as stated on recommendations and your will definitely clear the Light Beast. With full knowledge about team set-up and runes, you can also get a good clear rating using F2P units.

    Don’t use HP% based monsters as HP% attacks are heavily nerfed in Rifts (maybe after this guide was written). For example a theorical 15% max HP dmg on the boss does 1k.

    Lyn can be still good though due to elemental advantage (but she’ll take more damage too so prepare some protection or HP for her), but the HP% part wont do much for you.
