Lightning Rod dan tests

I'm not posting in the Dan QQ threads. There's more than enough going on in those.

But for those who are working on dan tests for Lightning Rod, is there anything you can share? I'm considering trying for a dan test myself, and I'm wondering what exactly to expect. I've never done a dan test ever, so this is a first for me.

    It's one of the more easier ones to dan(at least to dan 2, haven't done dan 3). Just try to rod them in groups and aim for the reset. As always, if you don't get enough points, you can exit early. I normally get a 2k damage bonus so let's say i get 7k, at the end that'll be 9k and S rank.

    The only skills that are hard are the ones that had Dan ranks before this update. Lightning rod along with the puppet, gunner, and ninja tests are all a piece of cake.

    Thanks for the input. I got to Dan 1 today. I think with the points I got from Dan 1 I could probably also get to Dan 2 if I replicate the same results. I'm a bit worried about Dan 3, though.

    Make sure to use lightning bolt to off enemies when LR is on cool down. This builds the staff element to do more damage and get a higher bonus at the end. When it comes to the golem, I spam firebolt to keep the golem at bay till LR is ready again.
