Cronus over cheating

Cronus is REALLY hard. Mostly because his cheat is glitched. As you know, if you use a one enemy spell on him, he will attack you with his special spell. Now he does it EVEN WITH all enemy. Anyone have anything happen to you like this?

It's not the attack type. It's attacking him without a trap in place.

all the cheats in that dungeon have been amplified.

my friend and i did the hades fight last night. now, instead of getting one cheat heal when someone dies, he literally spams them~ one kill results in FOUR spam-heals that do 630 PER TICK, PER ROUND. so that 5000 damage you did? yeah, it's all eaten up by those free heals. good luck with that.

i hate that whole dungeon now. it's so unnecessarily boring and grind-y... and people call this fun? i would rather have teeth pulled.

Don't attack Cronus (single OR multi attack) unless there is a trap on him. He will punish you with his special attack otherwise.

Attacking Cronus when he's not "marked" (trapped first) is what triggers the cheat. It doesn't matter if it's a single attack or AOE; if he's not "marked" first, his cheat is triggered.

He has always done the same number as bosses are surviving. That's 3 per death. The fourth was likely his natural heal and not part of the cheat.

well, i'm glad one of us is still having a good time.

i used to be able to clear the instance in 2 hours; now, it takes upwards of 4 hours, thanks to all the spam cheats. i'd like to know who over the age of 5 has that kind of time. because, until someone figures out how to put more hours in a day, i simply don't have 4 hours to spare.

The cheats are not really a problem for me, the dungeon's length is.

Exactly! I have school to work on studying for my finals and ill be very busy during the summer, I just don't know how people have sooo much time to spare on a dungeon. Its ridiculous.

Cronus doesn't cheat that much. Stack some traps and go for a one-hit KO.

The cheats in Tartarus haven't changed.
