    Before move on, strongly recommend
    http://appinvasion.com/threads/frontier-gate-guide.328550/
    Trend not to repeat what was said in the thread already.

    Cleared stage 30 on the first run, and then retired. Ended up with 8+ mil pts.
    If had done it better, just stage 26 should be enough for the 7mil sphere.

    I Notable bonus pts.
    Multi-kill: 10k / unit
    Damage output: unknown formula, but it's a major source of pts in each stage.
    Spark & overkill : unknown formula, shall be rewarded in final scoring page.
    Victory: 10k / stage, to be rewarded in the final scoring page too.

    If don't have enough strong units and spheres, then don't miss any multi-kills in stage 1-20, or at least 1-16. Try to gain as many sparks and overkill hits as the same time.​

    II Buffs
    Must-have defensive buffs: DEF, ares DEF, ailments null, crit null, EWD null, and miti
    Highly recommended buffs: spark dmg buffs, HoT, 6 elements
    Recommended buffs: BB management, BC/HC drop rate, ​

    III Skills & others
    RNGesus played a big role here. LS AI was pretty useful in my experience.
    A ST + AoE BB/SBB set or hit count buff would makes multi-kill easier.
    Suggest: 1) min HP>28k and no more than 3 units with HP < 30k; 2)try to make your squad more tanky if cant auto stage 1-15.​


    My squad fyi.
    With 20% HP/DEF or more.
    Leader: Juno (2 turn miti, HoT, BC/HC drop rate)
    Leader: Ark (6 element)
    Sub: Gabriela (2 turn various null on BB & HP boost)
    Sub: Garrel (50% parameter, spark dmg boost)
    Sub: Hallelujah (Enhanced ATK -> DEF)
    Sub: Sirius ​

    This FG and its dependency on luck is kinda ridiculous.. You can have an all defensive setup and still be like butter put through a hot knife @.@

    Agreed.
    But if could do pretty well in stage 1-15, or even 1-20, clearing only stage 26 is needed to meet 7m.
    The RNGesus could troll you in stage 23-25. According to the guide in JP sub, you can counter the nukes in one of the stages by UBB properly.
    So only 2 stages are kinda dangerous, if the spawns hit hard.

    It isn't that hard to clear for the 7mil reward, it's more of clearing the whole thing.. Has anyone managed to do that? Though it felt like Trials of the Gods over again still makes ya feel smallish despite your stash of omnis, which could put ppl off a lil..

    Having said that, it's a challenge for them hardcores to find a way surely, they'll have plenty of fun no doubt..

    Does "Clear the whole thing" mean clear stage 100?
    Nawww, I don't have any interest. Stage 30 was too much for me already.
    TotG was designed with heart.
    As an Alim content, all I saw was alim had slacked in content creation. Repeative 10 stages. Its quite easy to duplicate as many stages as they want just by multiplying the dmg and HP.

    Gab/Ark leads.

    Stage 4 Fina got one shot, and Krantz died through mitigation.

    Yeah. This FG can suck it.

    So if let's say I just want all the rewards, is it better to play safe with defensive squad or just nuke my way out till I got enough score and call dibs on it?

    Play safe. After stage 20, enemies start to nuke hard.
    iirc, they killed 4 times of my units from stage 23-25. Luckily I picked future desire and along with Juno's LS, and ended up with only one dead Juno.(revived her with the battle condition on entering Stage 26).
