    Note:
    (1) Crossroads in the Devastation of War Part 1 is consist of 7 episodes only. Once you finished with all of them, a Hard version will be unlocked. But this time, you can use any unit you want and not the forced setup anymore. Also, the stages had some variation to the originals.
    (2) You can get Yomi J+'s token and materials all by clearing the Hard version. You will end up having about 65 pcs on average for each combining both perfect clears (all 3 star) and milestone reward. Meaning additional farming is required (at least 3 runs).


    Crossroads in the Devastation of War Part 1

    Episode 1: Bright Stars in the Darkness of the Night
    Win Condition: Kill all enemy
    Setup: Ren and Jin
    Story: It's like a reminiscence of Itachi and Sasuke.

    It is best to thin their numbers before aiming for "Kill 4+ foes in one blow" quest mission to reduce fatality. Pls be informed that enemies love to prioritize Jin.




    Episode 2: Heavy Burdens
    Win Condition: Kill all enemy
    Setup: Yomi and Leafah
    Story:

    milk Yomi?! Fucking perverted old man! I swear your dead when we see each other! All girls belong to an alpha male like me!

    Yomi x Leafah vs Sazh x Vanille

    that Silhouette! Wadatsumi?

    When you look at the 3rd quest mission, you would say "Wtf?! Is this for real?". Yeah, you seeing it right. You're not dreaming and its not a typo error. "Let me guess... another hell of an RNG run?". It only sounds scary but in fact its pretty easy. There's only 1 RNG involve and it's not painful.

    The summary of the strategy is simple - you kill all the enemy while still under the effect of Sovereign Oberon and Mauve Kikimora, and at the same time keeping both Yomi and Leafah out of the Minotaurs' reach.

    While heading upward, Yomi should gather Jewel until she receives the necessary buffs from Leafah. Meanwhile, Leafah will cast Sovereign Oberon during her 1st turn and Mauve Kikimora during her 2nd turn covering both of them. As soon as Yomi receives the buffs, she will start throwing Shuriken at the Fire Minotaurs. The Fire Minotaur takes 2 Shuriken throw to take down.

    After the buffing done, Leafah will proceed heading upward and end turn. If Leafah gets the proper positioning, the ratty will end up covering her away from the Thunder Minotaur's reach. On Leafah's next turn, kill the Thunder Minotaur along with the Thunder Ratty using Tempestuous [Sylpheed] ONLY if there's no indication of the Minotaur's reactive skill, then continue heading upward. The Minotaur's reactive skill is a pre-emptive one but its chance to proc is pretty low that playing RNG isn't painful. It is still do-able just fine even if you don't go for an RNG. You can just let Yomi kill the Thunder Minotaur instead as it only takes 1 shot for her.

    You can just refer to the video below on how things done.


    Note: Sovereign Oberon is the MVP of the run.


    Episode 3: Paths of Escape
    Win Condition: Kill all enemy
    Setup: Ren and Jin

    Nothing special just don't forget to collect all 3 rune on the map.


    Note: In Hard mode, you can borrow a mercenary Roxanne and use Tezla Grenade to tone down the enemy threat.


    Episode 4: A Familiar Face
    Win Condition: Kill all enemy
    Setup: Jin and Leafah

    The enemy ninja can use Golden Bind so make sure to use Transcendence for protection. To avoid fatality, find an area wherein enemy's access to your units is limited. You can just refer to the video below on how things done.


    Note: In Hard mode, the 3 Shiba Senko Spy in the right upper area will not move from its position and will just throw shuriken. A 5x5 diamond AOE skill is recommended for killing these enemies simultaneously (ex: Masamune J+'s Fire From Above or Battlefield Drama's Sinister Gaze)


    Episode 5: Blood Debts between Good and Evil
    Win Condition: Kill Yomi (Yomi has innate Guts)
    Setup: Ren, Jin and Leafah
    Story:
    ac15.jpg
    if Tekken has Devil Jin, TAC has Devil Yomi

    A 3v1 fight between Ren, Jin and Leafah against Devil Yomi. You must defeat Devil Yomi within 7 turns. Devil Yomi packs some power and has an insane HP regeneration, 4Kish. Fortunately, Ren has an answer to Devil Yomi's insane HP regen and it's Three Wretched Demons.

    Devil Yomi will take the 1st turn. On her 2nd turn, she will use Sharpening Focus. Jin's Blinding Circle will help to make Devil Yomi miss on her attacks. You can just refer to the video below on how things done.




    Episode 6: The End of the Road to Hell
    Win Condition: Kill the Discarnate Power
    Setup: Ren, Jin and Leafah

    Just focus on offense and make sure Disable Heal is inflicted onto the enemy. A precautionary reminder, avoid Leafah being near Ren esp when the enemy is casting something. It might probably be the Fire AOE attack and Leafah is Wind element. You can just refer to the video below on how things done.


    Note: In Hard mode, if you OHKO the Discarnate Power, no 4x Minotaur will spawn. The Minotaur doesn't drop Kagomurasaki Boots Diagram but only the Discarnate Power.


    Episode 7: Shooting Star Promises
    Win Condition: Kill Jin
    Setup: Yomi
    Story:
    ac16.jpg ac18.jpg
    incest?! wtf!
    ac20.jpg
    gangbang? don't you worry, girl. as long as im around, no man can plant his seeds into your womb except mine
    ac21.jpg
    okay, TAC isn't just have Devil Yomi but Devil Jin as well

    A battle to the death between siblings aka Sasuke vs Itachi fight.

    Yomi's Kagomurasaki's Moonlight isn't really a pure offense job. It is a variation of Priestess J+. You will not fight Jin head on, rather via hit-and-run tactic. Good thing the terrain favors such tactic. The tactic won't be successful if Devil Jin's jewel is not always in check - use Essential Delivery (and not Harvest Celebration Dance).


    Note:
    (1) Prayer of Strength will make Yomi last longer.
    (2) In Hard mode, Devil Jin only drops 1pc Yomi's Keepsakes Diagram. You can get more from the Shiba Senko Spies (including the spawning ones).

    Crossroads in the Devastation of War Part 2

    Episode 1: The Weight of the Setting Sun
    Win Condition: Kill all enemy
    Setup: Yomi and Leafah
    Story:
    ac17.jpg
    isn't she lovely?
    ac18.jpg ac19.jpg
    !

    Nothing special.




    Episode 2: The Line between Justice and Truth
    Win Condition: Kill all enemy or you get wiped out
    Setup: Leafah
    Story:
    ac20.jpg
    hai, Kagura-sensei

    Leafah with her 4 loyal soldiers (of Wind element) are pitted against wave of Greed Dike soldiers. At first, things are easy with Thunder and Water enemies. But things will start to get tough when Fire enemies began to swarm.

    There will be 8 Thunder enemy and 4 Water enemy all in all that makes a total of 12 enemy. You just need to kill 3 more (from the 8 Fire enemy) to achieve "Clear after slaying 15+ foes". Then, you can end the game by just letting your squad gets defeated. No need to go through for extended slugfest just for the sake of killing all the enemy.

    Normal Run


    Slugfest Run

    Note: I feel like an idiot bringing Water scrolls when i found out during the run that they won't do good damage.


    Episode 3: A Cry for Forgiveness
    Win Condition: Kill all enemy
    Setup: Yomi

    Yomi vs Leafah and her subordinate. Just refer to the video below for getting all mission reward clear.




    Episode 4: No Child's Dream
    Win Condition: Kill all enemy
    Setup: Yomi, Leafah and Kagura
    Story: Yum! Yum! Yum! see it for yourself
    ac22.jpg
    it is clear that the silhouette was Fury. but how? what's her story?

    Our three lovely maidens against the combined forces from Shinba Sinko group and Greed Dike army. There will be 2x Shinba Sinko Spy that will appear after x turn has passed.




    Episode 5: To Bloom in the Darkness
    Win Condition: Kill all enemy
    Setup: Yomi, Leafah and Kagura
    Story: "Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers". Have you seen a demon doing a tongue twister?

    Yomi had to move towards the enemies (besides Kagura) to lure the southeast most Minotaur from moving. Otherwise, you only have 2 Minotaur moving towards you and the other one is just staying put. Then, Yomi had to circle around in order to direct the Minotaurs to the wooden bridge.

    Since Leafah's Sovereign Oberon and Yomi's Prayer of Strength or Discarnate Grace doesn't stack, it is okay to have Yomi on her own while Kagura under Leafah.

    Another task you have to do is to kill the Shadow Assassin and 2x Blademaster without getting any damage from them esp from the enemy Blademaster. Kagura can OHKO the Shadow Assassin using Armageddon Sky while she's under the buff effect of Sovereign Oberon. Yomi, under the effect of Discarnate Grace, can OHKO the Blademaster with her Discarnate Power's Dancing Blade.

    After the enemy Shadow Assassin and the enemy Blademasters, next will be the 2x Spy and the Minotaurs. Kagura will handle the enemy Spies while Yomi deal with the Minotaurs.

    ac23.jpg
    The enemy Spies will eventually move from its position but it takes quiet some time. What you need to be wary of is range of the Windmill Shuriken (refer to the image just above). Wait for their turn to pass then start casting Armageddon Sky on them.

    Prevent the Minotaurs from crossing the wooden bridge by letting Yomi block the way. There will be 1 Minotaur that is behind from the other two since its starting point is the farthest. While waiting for that Minotaur, use the time to re-cast Discarnate Grace (in my run, i used Prayer of Strength but it was a miscalculation). Now that the 3rd Minotaur finally caught up, its time to nuke them. Kagura should be available to help Yomi at this point. A buffed Discarnate Power's Dancing Blade and a spell from Kagura should be enough as finisher.

    Just refer to the video below on how things done.

    Episode 6: Soul-Sheathed Blade
    Win Condition: Kill the Discarnate Power
    Setup: Yomi, Leafah, Kagura and Ren
    Story:
    ac25.jpg
    "not a lot going on in the front back then" - pervert
    ac26.jpg
    i agree
    ac27.jpg
    "You've really grown- and it's not just your height!" - hey, dude, watch where you're lookin'! i will poke that eyes of yours! no feasting on one of my girls
    ac28.jpg ac29.jpg
    oh, Taga tame no Alchemist, don't let Kagura marry someone! not Ren. not Bud. and no love triangle!! Zeke just dyed his hair!!

    It's 4 vs 1. Ren will be joining our young ladies in the fight.

    The Discarnate Power will use Close Shave on its 1st turn and Encroach on 2nd turn. Encroach is a diamond AOE around the caster. Just disperse and you will be fine.




    Episode 7: A Return to Home
    Win Condition: Kill all enemy
    Setup: Yomi
    Story:
    ac30.jpg
    my first impression of Yomi is i think of her as generic/plain character. something that won't get my interest. but now, damn, she is gradually intoxicating my mind that im starting to fantasize about her (aherm, don't get the wrong idea). they really choose a view with quiet an exposure for the fanservice
    ac31.jpg
    what a relief

    2 vs 5 battle between the siblings and horde of Incarnate Power.

    Avoid taking unnecessary damage and a no no from the original Incarnate Power (noticeable as the only Lv85 while the others are Lv75). One example is getting out of enemy range during preparation (buffing moment). The original Incarnate Power packs some power. It deals around 1k and you can't afford to get hit.

    Your first target is the original Incarnate Power. Eliminate it before it go for offense. The original Incarnate Power will use Leaden Surge if the target have no ailment protection and if within range during its first turn, otherwise it will just idle.

    After you killed the original Incarnate Power, the rest of the battle is a hit and run.


    Note: At 5:43, just let Yomi stay on her position instead after doing a normal attack.
