    General Update/Note Section
    (0) Free-to-play unit esp for the significant component
    (1) Starting from PotA EX+ up to newer ones, these EXs require enlightened units (not necessarily the entire squad) for a f2p run. Some cheese is available but the strategy requires limited unit like Roxanne.
    (2) For PotA II EX1, EX2, EX3, EX4 and EX5, since they were very old stages, i only provided a newbie edition run relying on a Mercenary to clear the stage and net those sweet elemental soul shards from the quest mission reward. So if you are a newbie with no squad to compete the said EXs, you might want to try the strategy. Any enlightened unit can solo the above mentioned EXs.
    (3) You can now get Dark Tyrfing plus 150 soul shards of her for free from the Challenge Board (update happened for global on the release of Tiferet and Failnaught).
    New
    (5) After Almace, are the god killers: Tiferet, Failnaught, Cassius and Risanaught.
    (6) We get Tiferet and Failnaught consecutively rather than the 3 month gap between them. We can also expect same thing for Cassius and Risanaught.
    (7) Tyrfing JE+ is available on MP only. You only need to clear 7 runs (which is the entire milestone) and you have the complete set including the job change token.
    Old
    (4) Next PotK rerun is January 2020 and the new unit is Almace.

    Note: About PotA EX+, i had tried it with non-enlightened f2p setup but i still got run down. Made 50+ attempt but it was impossible for me. The only non-kaigan unit that works effectively on this stage is Roxanne. Upon reviewing TAC JP run on the PotA EX+, they have lots of enlightened units already. Some use Orion for his AOE Stop whereas in TAC GL, we got Envy's Corruption: Mock (AOE Berserk), Ignis's WA Sagefire (AOE Daze) and Rider Yomi's Magic Bind (AOE Bind and Daze).

    Phantom of the Kill (or PotK in short) is a mobile strategy RPG developed by Fuji & Gumi games and published by Gumi. The global version was closed on July 1, 2018. An anime adaptation called "Phantom of the Kill: Zero kara no Hangyaku" (or Phantom of the Kill: Zero's Rebellion) was aired on April 7, 2016.

    Phantom of the Alchemist is a portmanteau of Phantom of the Kill and Alchemist Code.

    Phantom of the Alchemist II EX3 (Forcas Hell Lance)
    Stage Info: http://www.alchemistcodedb.com/quest/qe-ev-pok-sam-ex1 (Single Player) / http://www.alchemistcodedb.com/quest/qe-multi-pok-sam-ex1 (Multiplayer)
    Gear: http://www.alchemistcodedb.com/gear/af-arms-folcas-00

    Forcas Hell Lance is the only lance with +Agi so far though its damage is pretty low. The event milestone will give you a total of 85 shards. The drop rate for the shards is abysmal and you may need to manipulate the RNG by opening the Treasure Chest first of all then retreat if no shards.

    Do not kill Rayvner (aka the Dimensional Eyeball) until the spawns arrive.

    Reference Video
    Newbie Edition using Mercenary


    Note: The mercenary is Zahar. Zahar is weak on his pre-enlightened state so if you are picking Zahar as your mercenary, make sure he is enlightened.

    Phantom of the Alchemist V EX1 (Deadly Bow)
    Stage Info: http://www.alchemistcodedb.com/quest/qe-ev-pok5-ex (Single Player) / http://www.alchemistcodedb.com/quest/qe-multi-pok5-ex (Multiplayer)
    Gear: http://www.alchemistcodedb.com/gear/af-arms-pok-b-arte-01

    Kill the Dark Mandragora before it takes its 1st turn as it will cast Bone Snap [PAtk Down] weakening your PAtk significantly. Seida is the perfect unit for the job.

    Treat your archers with buff (Missile Atk Up and Missile Range Up) from the Support Buff Crystal by hitting it with a normal attack. It is very useful and you need it.

    Kill all the Winged Eldritch as quickly as possible before the 2 Armored Eldritchs spawn.

    Then, 2 Armored Eldritchs will spawn on your side of the area. Kill them before these enemies take their turn. Eldritch Ultrablast III is Armored Eldritch's signature move and its fatal.

    Last spawn will be the 1x Demon and 1x Mage Eldritch. Kill the Mage Eldritch before it could cast Overclock.

    Gear: http://www.alchemistcodedb.com/gear/af-arms-pok-b-long-01

    Enemies
    PotA 6 EX1.04.jpg PotA 6 EX1.01.jpg PotA 6 EX1.02.jpg PotA 6 EX1.03.jpg
    Longinus on her Sacred Spearman JE, 6x Armored Eildritch, 10x Soldier Eildritch (only 2 present at the start) and 4x Mage Eildritch (1 is spawn).

    Contrary to the info shown in the database, enemies are immune to any status ailment.

    Nothing special about the enemy Longinus. All she do is the same as any regular Icy Sacred Spearman [Haniel]. Her favorite skill to use is Clashing Ice Crystal.

    As the hint says, Armored Eildritch has extremely high PDef/MDef and has a reactive skill Self Enhance which raises its PAtk that procs when hit. It will spam Eldritch Ultrablast IV as long as it has enough jewel.

    The Mage Eildritch is actually a Chronomancer and not a Mage so don't confuse its name for its job function.

    Strategy
    You need to bring at least 2 unit that are effective against the Armored Eildritch. Mikasa (you can sub the Warrior JE), Yunagi, Lamia are primary example. Shen Mei (Shadow Assassin JE) is good for singular target.

    Your squad will be splitted into 2 groups: (a) Slot 1 & Slot 2's starting position is at the northwest upper area, while (b) Slot 3 & Slot 4 is at the southeast lower area.

    Your anti-Armored Eildritch heavy hitter should be in the upper area as that unit will be handling 4 Armored Eildritch while the likes of Shen Mei will be at the lower area since she lacks the effective AOE.

    The battle starts with a friendly Dark Tyrfing using a buff skill that reduces jewel cost of your unit's skill by half for 1 turn, then retreats right after.

    The Soldier Eildritch is nothing to worry about but be careful when casting your spell as this enemy has the skill that can interrupt casting.

    Better ignore the Armored Eildritch if you won't aim for OHKO or an immediate kill. Once buffed with its reactive skill (stackable), it started to pack some damage. Use AOE to kill the 4 Armored Eildritch on the upper area. You can use single target for the 2 Armored Eildritch on the lower area.

    Once your done with the Armored Eildritch, prepare to intercept Longinus. Shayna is excellent against her. Once you dispose the enemy Longinus, the rest is just a simple clean up.

    Q1: How many extra run i need to do to get enough Deadly Lance shards after i completed 5 run on solo and 5 run on multiplay?
    A1: No need for extra run. The all-in-all Deadly Lance shards you get is enough to get a 5*.

    Q2: How many Battledress of Envy diagram piece do i get all-in-all after i completed 5 run on solo and 5 run on multiplay?
    A2: More or less 105 pcs.

    Reference Video


    Note: All quest mission using f2p squad.


    Limited Unit: EO Shen Mei & Mikasa. I should've use Warrior as sub-skill for the Titan Fall.

    Phantom of the Alchemist VI EX2 (Masamune's Samurai J+)
    Stage Info: http://www.alchemistcodedb.com/quest/qe-ev-pok7-ex

    Pretty easy. Your slot 2 unit starting position is located far northeast of the stage and is very far from the rest of your squad.

    The Diablo will appear after x number of turn. Dark Masamune will appear after you kill some PotK enemy. No mechanics whatsoever. You can just ignore those Secret Support Stone (provides some HP and CT).

    Q: How many extra run i need to do to get enough materials after i completed 5 run on solo and 5 run on multiplay?
    A: 2 extra run

    Note:
    (1) All quest mission using f2p squad.
    (2) For veteran players, after clearing it once manually, you can auto the stage using Dorothea (Leader), Eren (2nd Slot), anything you want for Slot 3 and Slot 4 and a Mercenary (pref Eren).

    Mono Dark Team

    Note: All quest mission using f2p squad.

    Phantom of the Alchemist VI EX3 (Dark Corpse Slicer)
    Stage Info: http://www.alchemistcodedb.com/quest/qe-ev-pok8-ex (Single Player) / http://www.alchemistcodedb.com/quest/qe-multi-pok8-ex (Multiplayer)
    Gear: http://www.alchemistcodedb.com/gear/af-arms-pok-b-masa-01

    Enemies
    Initial enemies are 2x Armored Eildritch, 1x Soldier Eildritch, 3x Mage Eildritch, 2x Winged Eildritch and 1x AJ4000. Spawns are Dark Masamune, Dark Artemis, Waginau, 1x Armored Eildritch, 1x Mage Eildritch and 1x AJ4000.

    The Mage Eildritch here is a Sage and not a Chronomancer. Waginau, as usual, will use Gravity that lowers targets' PAtk/MAtk significantly. Waginau is very evasive with its 70% Evasion rate. The AJ4000 will cast a small AOE barrier skill on its 1st turn that blocks physical damage for 3 instances regardless of the damage amount.

    Strategy
    It's not necessary to take down AJ4000 before it could cast its barrier skill. Pulling it off though provides a huge impact on the battle.

    List of Tricks:
    (1) Magia Gunslinger JE's Horus Burst - Vivi mains Sage JE with sub Magia Gunslinger JE. i'm not sure if Gate 2 passive is a must in order to reach the required damage output
    (2) Machinist JE's Bombshell - an optimized Albea will be able to OHKO AJ4000 even without aid from LS or buff
    Note: If the unit itself comes short on the damage, you can use instant cast buff to bolster the damage output. Ex: Hange's Tactical Insight or Yomi's Discarnate Grace.

    After you kill some enemy (at least 3) in the backrow, eventually Waginau will appear. It is an enemy you need to watch out. Better kill Waginau quickly before it uses Gravity on your damage dealers.

    Alongside Waginau, is another AJ4000, but it shouldn't be a problem anymore at this point.

    Dark Masamune and Dark Artemis are HP tonner but none of them do something crazy.

    Q1: How many extra run i need to do to get enough Dark Corpse Slicer shards after i completed 5 run on solo and 5 run on multiplay?
    A1: No need for extra run. The all-in-all Dark Corpse Slicer shards you get is enough to get a 5*.

    Q2: How many Battledress of Wrath diagram piece do i get all-in-all after i completed 5 run on solo and 5 run on multiplay?
    A2: More or less 105 pcs.

    Phantom of the Alchemist VII EX3 (Screaming Bullet & Screaming Axe)
    Stage Info: http://www.alchemistcodedb.com/quest/qe-ev-pok9-ex (Single Player) / http://www.alchemistcodedb.com/quest/qe-multi-pok9-ex (Multiplayer)
    Gear: http://www.alchemistcodedb.com/gear/af-accs-pok-b-frei-01 (Screaming Bullet) & http://www.alchemistcodedb.com/gear/af-arms-pok-b-para-01 (Screaming Axe)

    Enemies come in 3 batches. The next batch will only appear once you kill all the current enemies.

    It is best to get "Kill 5+ foes in one blow" from Thunder Armored Eildritchs from the 3rd batch.

    As for the Secret Support Crystal, if you hit it with physical attack from a diagonal position close to it, it will lower the target's PDef but raises its MDef. Vice versa, if you hit it with magical attack from a diagonal position close to it, it will lower the target's MDef but raises its PDef.

    Q: How many extra run i need to do to get enough Screaming Axe shards and Screaming Bullet shards after i completed 5 run on solo and 5 run on multiplay? How about the Battledress of Gluttony diagram piece and Battledress of Pride diagram piece?
    A: You will end up with excess gear shards because you will still need to farm for the diagram pieces.

    Reference Video
    Mono Wind


    Note:
    (1) Proof of the Sun Successor gear is not mandatory.
    (2) You can run Setsuna as either Blademaster or Shadow Assassin.
