Strike went very well.
Calculated Phorusaura Rampage and Run at 3646. I had Stygidaryx at level 21 which was 3526 HP, not enough for a hit & run from it. So pumped it up to 22 which gave me 3702 HP. Didn’t need it though, it just swapped after the Instant Rampage. I had watched videos of it going either way so better safe than paying for a retry.
Lineup: 22 Stygi first slot, 22 Smilo second, 22 Tryko third and 21 Geminititan anchor; just in case I had troubles with all the Evasives and needed that 1097 Nullifying Strike.
I started with Smilonemys and swapped right into Stygi. Took the instant Rampage from Phorusaura with my SI invincibility and it swapped right into… I don’t remember, they all look the same to me. I Cleansing swooped into Smilonemys, stun took and I and hit Long Defensive Strike.
After that it was strike for the shield them Precise Pounce every other turn. Didn’t need to put a third in, Smilonemys still had some health left at the end. I did get lucky and critted through Evasive once when I shielding striked. Wouldn’t have mattered though, I had more than enough health left for another round. It seemed like a level 21 Smilo might have been able to do it. Stygi survived with no loss of HP.
