How to Defeat Grythion (Celestial Griffin)
Grythion is no easy fight. Many of his abilities combine to be able to counter or deconstruct almost any team, and it may require you to use manual control to achieve victory.
Your primary enemy – other than Grythion – is the Sky Bond. In this battle, it’s very easy to end up on a ticking clock, as the Sky Bond offers the Celestial Griffin huge bonuses to SPD and damage.
Tracking the boss’ cooldown timers is critical to success. He is incredibly good | at manipulating buffs and debuffs to his advantage – either he removes debuffs to fill his turn meter, or he removes your buffs to deal damage – enough damage to kill even very powerful teams, especially when combined with Divine Strike.
One major thing to avoid is using any Turn Meter fill and reduction skills. Grythion will reduce all Turn Meter Reduction effects by 50%, but that’s no different from any other Doom Tower boss.
No, the issue is that Grythion will mirror all Turn Meter Reduction effects – so, reduce his turn meter by 50%, and he’ll reduce the turn meters of your entire team by 50%. Increase your team’s Turn Meters by 15%, and Grythion will increase his Turn Meter by 75% – 15% for each Champion on your team.
The effect can be resisted, however, so if you want to try and use Turn Meter reduction to control Grythion, be sure to pack plenty of RES. Needless to say, leave Champions that increased friendly Turn Meters off your team.
You will need strong healing to keep your Champions above 50% HP, as he can destroy a target extremely quickly once they dip below that threshold. You’ll also want good debuff removal to counteract anything Grythion puts out.
Ultimately, you’ll need a team that can function without buffs – Champions that destroy HP and ignore DEF will be critical, as you can’t rely on debuffs to make Grythion vulnerable without giving him the opportunity to turn the tables. Same goes for RES – you can’t use buffs to stop everything Grythion dishes out.
