Was hoping Lafate would post this before he went on his hiatus, so it was long overdue. Pretty sure many of you have played through the 1st phase maps already which introduced some new mobs (preta, onis, and tengu) so I don't need to go into that too much. The 2nd phase introduces the spoopy samurai skeletons (soldiers and archers) who have a power-up aura once their life hits below 50%, so watch out for them and hope you have a strong tank (like AW'ed Bernice) to defend against them. The last few maps also bring in new bosses with two forms and deal multi-target magic damage, so don't get cocky once you beat their first forms.
The later Eastern maps are the first ones that prove to be more difficult with common units. If you don't have any good premium/event units, it is recommended you 2* it for now. The Heavenly Kings are not to be taken lightly.
As for the drop completion, 3/4 are new units that you may want to get. The silver bishop will prove worthy to use in the Magic City maps if you don't want to wait for Sharon, the silver female samurai is probably AW fodder since there are better samurais out there already, and the silver monk is also AW fodder for you Rika users who don't want to continuously roll for Gina. And let's hope the monk uses silver rogues as CC material until we get more copies of him.
