Toughest Event: Battle of Scorching Heat and Freezing Cold
Battle of Scorching Heat and Freezing Cold is going to start from 17 September 15:00. This is a no-continue stage; you will not be able to use rainbow coins to continue the stage if your party is wiped out.
Battle of Scorching Heat and Freezing Cold will run at the following timings:
- 17 Sept 15:00 onwards, only on Saturdays and Sundays, full-day (event end date to be announced)
If you clear all the stages and missions of Battle of Scorching Heat and Freezing Cold, some of the rewards are:
- White Suit Luffy, who can equip all the skills and Specials that NW Luffy can.
- EX Skill: Gomu Gomu no UFO (NW Luffy)
EX Skills increase the fever gauge faster when used
Storm Characters (Toughest Event) will get boosted HP and Attack when used in the Toughest Event stages. The Storm Characters this time are the following four:
Note that Storm Characters (Toughest Event) and Storm Characters (Fame Event) have no relation at all.
As with most stages with multi-boss, you need to take one out ASAP to lower the damage on you and your allies. We find that this is the case even if one powers up when their partner is down.
Smoker and Tashigi
There isn’t anything particularly noteworthy for this fight. Clear and mobs and Tashigi first, then surround Smoker. Smoker takes 10% more damage from Water attacks, but they’re otherwise not resistant or weak to other elements.
Vergo and Law
Law takes 10% more damage from Water attacks. Vergo takes 50% more damage from Fire and double damage from Ice, so make sure to bring those. Generally we target Law first as Vergo is thicker, and hope the collateral damage wears down Vergo’s HP before you turn on him.
Akainu and Aokiji
For this stage, we recommend efficient mob clearers such as Fujitora to take out the snipers ASAP. It is possible to kill the mobs to the point that they stop spawning. Then focus firepower on Aokiji, and finally surround Akainu when he’s alone.
Aokiji has no elemental weakness and in fact has 90% resistance against Ice, Thunder, Wind and Special, so make sure to avoid these elements.
Akainu is very thick and usually left for last. Thankfully, Ice and Water attacks hit him for double (and 90% resistance against every other element), and he can go down fairly quickly if you have NW Choppers throwing at him without his allies around. Characters with Water-type special attacks, such as Jinbei and Koala, can be good too.
