    Stage Info: https://www.alchemistcodedb.com/quest/qe-ev-pirate-ex

    The octopuses have insane resistance against Pierce and 50% attack-type resistance on the rest except for a specific one (which obviously printed on their names):
    1x Giant Octopus (Fire) is weak to Missile
    5x Flapjack Octopus (Thunder & Dark) are weak to Missile
    3x Flapjack Octopus (Fire) are weak to Slash
    3x Flapjack Octopus (Wind) are weak to Pierce
    1x Flapjack Octopus (Light) is weak to Magic

    Furthermore, these octopus deals more damage with their magic attack if the target is inflicted with Blind.

    The event EX (also includes the EX+ & EX Hell) can only be cleared 5x daily but the rerun had the limitation removed.

    Note:
    (1) Obviously, don't bring unit with Strike attacks like Neun.
    (2) Don't forget to equip the memento "Galley Grub Debacle" for the Alchemic Boundary increase.

    Eight-Armed Armchair Theory EX+
    Stage Info: https://www.alchemistcodedb.com/quest/qe-ev-pirate-ex-sp

    A Vacciner and a Wild Beast Tamer (for Roar) will make your life easy. Vaccine will prevent your squad from eating amplified damage. Roar to maintain control and avoid getting overran.

    Aside from the enemies getting buffed statistically, 2 more enemy were added (1x Light Flapjack Octopus & an additional Demon).

    The boss octopus won't move unless you enter its aggro range.

    Pirate Coins earned per run: 200-400

    Note:
    (1) All quest mission using f2p squad.
    (2) If you are running a rainbow squad, any MLS (Memento Leader Skill) will do. It doesn't necessarily be Cadanova MLS.

    Wild Beast Tamer is very useful here for both control and damage. As long as you keep them under the Roar's effect, then how you will kill them doesn't matter.

    The Giant Octopus has no resistance to Rage so keeping some charge of Roar (recommended 2) would be nice. The stats of the enemies are getting buffed again. Also, additional Light Flapjack Octopus (4 all-in-all) and Demon (3 all-in-all) has been added.

    There's a rare RNG involve at the very beginning of the battle. There are 2 Flapjack Octopus who make a different move than usual on its very first turn, but this is only rare which is a good thing. Thus, foiling you of putting them all under Roar from 2 Wild Beast Tamers.

    Avoid entering the Giant Octopus' aggro range!
