    I wanted to start a thread about the new 8-Bit Rush quest in the arena.

    I just finished it and I got 3 companions:
    - Holy Breath / A Class / Radiant Ball, 1 Row
    - Axion Breath /S Class / Gravity Ball, 1 Row
    - The Ancient Key / SS Class / (no descriptions)

    Wondering if there are other drops I can expect from the quest if I play it more times?

    Also, anyone knows what this mysterious Ancient Key is or does?

    Any other random thoughts on this quest?

    You can get 2 of each companion max (no more will drop if you have 2 in your inventory). There are no other drops.

    The ancient key is a stat booster and at lv 80 it increases all stats by 20. It does nothing else.

    Random thoughts? It's for newer players. The 8-bit bosses in this version have no strengths and no weaknesses and there are no luck chests at the end so you can and should bring your strongest units to power through it. It's helpful if you don't have a strong sword team for Kraken Kino or a strong Bow team for 8-bit Spinetrich.
    Also if you have a strong L100 team you're better off farming the other stages for pure Animata since the most you can get from 8-bit Rush is around 700 and you can get over 1000 Animata in stages like Bahamut Kino and average over 800 in most others.

    whats the dmg on the Radiant/Gravity, im assuming Holy Dragon Z and Axion Dragon Z are way better, the fact that there rank A and S might give em a use in pvp?

    Axion Breath is x2 Gravity and .7 Physical
    Holy Breath is x1 Photon and .5 Physical

    MAYBE they'll have a use in PvP, but I wouldn't hold my breath (har har har :happy: )

    I like this event. I mean, yeah, the rewards are nothing special. But it is at least moderately challenging without requiring certain units.

    8bit Axion Dragon kicked my ass twice. Well, I was using the B-list Adventurers like Lucia, Ra'prow, and Sh'berdan, though.

    I feel mages/gego team are better than physical dps team for this event.
