You choose your monsters from your friends list as shown below.

Note that no friendship points are awarded through challenge mode, and all of your friends will be able to be displayed, regardless of log in time.

Once you have selected your friends you can enter the dungeon. Your friend’s leader skill will not be active and no continues will be allowed.

Once you clear the floor the star will be filled in.

On first clear of the dungeon you will receive a magic stone.

Rare and Regular Gacha Renewal Details – Including New Water and Dark Valkyries

Gungho has announced some changes to the rare and the regular gacha machines (the egg machines) that will go into effect on 11/22 at noon. Maybe most notable in here is that there are two new Valkyries that will be in the rare gachas as well, for Water and Dark. Note that her active skill for these versions is to change heart orbs to water and dark orbs respectively. As of right now it appears that these are rare gacha only monsters, but maybe there would be some kind of evolution in the future. Also no word specifically yet on whether you would be able to ultimate evolve them for the 3x healer leader skill (although you would have to guess you would be able to). Also, note that during the upcoming gacha promotion (the Light Carnival from 11/22-11/29), there will be 3x chance for the new Princess Valkyries in addition to the increased chance for Light monsters. Check out all of the details on the updates below and you can see the official news on this here.

Rare Gacha Updates
– New Water and Dark Princess Valkyries
– Added more 6 star rarity monsters (such as evolved Siegfried and Hanzo)
– Chance for 3 star monsters reduced, higher chance for 4 star or higher monsters
– Chance for plus egg in rare gacha increased 1.5x
– Level for 3 and 4 star monsters is increased, so you will get more monsters that dispense around level 20 or so

Regular Gacha Updates
For the regular gacha, they have added some new monsters including:
– Dark Lady
– Red Chaser (evolves to Flame Chaser)
– Phoenix
– Hi-Gold Dragon and more metal dragon series
