While Cosmos has shown some tips for earning rewards in Time Portal folks without big merged sylphs, here I’ll explain how those with the big guns (cashers… at least until people start getting those Fusion Spirits) can get the full 400 point rewards.
The prerequisites for doing this are pretty steep, especially for free and low cashers, but the hope is that soon enough we’ll be able to collect enough Fusion Chi to exchange for Fusion Spirit and start seeing some very nice free merged sylphs around.
Things You’ll Need
Odin. Preferably 500k+ BR. To do this with Thor or Frigga would require a much higher BR sylph.
Ways to heal your Odin. Devour Soul, Light of Inspiration, Holy Vow, and Helios’ Blessing would all work well here. Have at least 2. Blessed Electro and Blessed Water passives are also great for this. Below is my Odin’s specs:
Strong back-up sylphs. 450k+ BR. In the event your Odin dies, you’ll want a clean up crew. Probably unnecessary if your Odin is around 520k+ BR with good healing skills.
400 Bound Balens. Unless you have a huge amount of Holy Sword BR added to one of your sylphs, you’re not going to be able to get 400 points without using a 400 bound balen “refresh”.
Why Not Frigga or Thor?
Thor and Frigga are on opposite ends of the spectrum. Thor deals fantastic damage and performs better in things like Holy Sword Temple than Odin does, when backed up by Friggas, but in Time Portal, simply doesn’t heal himself fast enough. Add Blessed Water and Blessed Electro to Thor to keep him in boss fights longer. Conversely, Frigga has great heals and shields, but just doesn’t deal damage well enough.
Here are the steps for doing this on Normal difficulty, with a ~500k BR Odin. To manage this on Hard difficulty, your Odin will probably need to be 580k+ BR, but the steps will be the same. I’m unsure how much BR will be necessary for the higher difficulties, but I suspect for Nightmare, it will be around 700k at least.
Start by attacking the C difficulty boss. You should be able to defeat it, but you will likely be low on HP.
Recover HP in a fight against the E boss.
Repeat steps 1 and 2.
Defeat the rest of the D and E bosses. This means you’ve used all the rounds for the E, D, and C bosses, and should have 170 points.
Refresh (green button, 400 bound balen cost) to regain your attempts against the E, D, and C bosses.
Do steps 1 through 4, but leave 1 or 2 E boss attempts for healing yourself.
Attack the B boss, and hopefully beat it.
If you do beat the B boss with Odin, recover HP with your remaining E boss attempts, and defeat the last B boss. You’ll now have 400 points and be able to collect all rewards.
If you do not defeat the B boss with Odin, finish it off with your 2nd sylph.
Defeat the last of the E bosses, and recover HP.
Defeat the last B boss, using both of your secondary sylphs if necessary.
Edit: Thanks to some folks in our Youtube comments, I realized that I can change the active sylph used. So a better bet for steps 8 through 11 may be to start with one of your secondary sylphs against the B boss, then finish with your Odin.
There you have it! The key part is leaving yourself E bosses to recover health with. Many people begin with E bosses and make their way up in difficulty, but that will most likely cut yourself short. Also make sure not to attack the B bosses until after the refresh, since it poses the most risk of killing your sylphs.
I explain and illustrate this whole process in the video below!
Other Strategy Guides for Time Portal
For those who cannot beat any of the bosses in Time Portal, Cosmos talks about things to help you get your first points in Time Portal.
All players can make sure that they are collecting Breakthrough Orbs from Death Zone bosses. Eventually everyone will be able to collect the materials needed to make a free merged sylph and open a Holy Sword for it, so collecting any and all materials you can manage to get now, will help you in the future.
