Counter Side Shadow Palace - Floor 2

In this guide you will find tips that will help you pass the second floor in the Shadow Palace.

MVP employees

Esterosa barrier is way thicker in SP than her normal one, but Yen/Alex can dispel it allowing you to clear the stages with her faster.

Claudia is one of the enemies on this floor so heal blocking is useful here.

Shadow Enemy

Shadow Esterosa

Her shields are thicker and it takes a while to go through them, but if you have Alex/Yen Xing you can easily make her vulnerable.

Shadow Enemy

Shadow Claudia

Not only does she heal a lot, but also damages anyone that stays in her healing aura. Bring a heal blocker to deal with the healing easier.

Shadow Enemy

Shadow Shin Jia

Stronger clones + bigger knockback, so use more ranged characters to deal with her.


It’s similar to the normal Lake ship, but the shield also gives ASPD and the ult only pushes units back without pulling the backline to the front.

  • Room 1 - Defenders are banned
  • Room 2 - Snipers are banned
  • Room 3 - Strikers are banned
  • Room 4 - Max 25 deployment cost
  • Room 5 - Max 25 deployment cost and Soldiers are banned

Any room can be cleared with dozens, if not more, different teams. Obviously, if you have Yuna/Hilde/ASY, you can slap her into your team and she will carry you, but the example teams below are targeted toward players that don’t really have any awakened units.

Room 1

Bring Alex/Yen Xing to deal with Shadow Este and the floor will be a cakewalk. You can’t use defenders here, so give Alex - or your other Striker - HP+HP (or HuMaGorgor from your tank) and she will carry you. Still, if you lack Alex or other barrier removers, you just need to bring more firepower to destroy the barriers made by Esterosa.

Example team (order matters):

Room 2

This time snipers are banned, so you can’t use Edel the carry monster here. Since Claudia’s circle only hurts ground units, you can use Air units (Rosa, Janus) to basically have free real estate on her while a tank occupies her.

Example team (order matters):

Room 3

Strikers are banned here, but it’s against Shadow Shin Jia, so it’s not that bad. Use snipers to kill her while your frontline will hold her ground and you should be fine.

Example team (order matters):

Room 4

No class restrictions, but you can’t go over 25 cost this time. Use flying units + snipers and keep Shadow Claudia/Shin Jia duo occupied with a tank+healer.

Example team (order matters):

Room 5

25 cost limit and soldier ban. Not like anyone is using soldiers on this floor, but hey! Alex/Yen Xing will be useful here because you again have to fight against Thicksterosa here. So use either of them to remove her shield. Then stack snipers and clear the floor!
