Dark Necrofear

You will automatically be able to get your hands on a copy of Dark Necrofear. It is a very strong card with a strong ability that can change the flow of a game. The only drawback is that it should be used in a fiend deck to special summon it as early as possible.

For anyone still having problems completing the 3 lvl 3 monsters in 1 duel, I completed by using a deck of ONLY level 3 monsters and fought his level 10 at the gate ezpz
one of his unlock missions is to "use level 3 or lower monster cards 3 times in a duel against him" i have already summoned 3 different level 3 monsters in a few duels but still failed. what is it supposed to mean?

For me, I used 3, 3 star EFFECT monsters and had their effects activated and it worked. I had used 3, 3 star normal monsters and nothing happened. I literally had no monsters in my deck besides 2/3 star effect monsters and spell/trap cards. Once I won the duel, Yami Bakura was finally unlocked.
why is he showing up on 10/13?

Doesn't matter, just vs legendary duellists or play Casual/Ranked duels with him without surrendering. (Bakura main player)

You’re better off doing ranked/casuals so you don’t have to spend the keys
Is a bakura slifer deck viable? If so, an example deck would be extremely helpful. Keep in mind i have some og pack cards and a shit ton of electric rising pack cards but very little aanything else
Sorry another question I am still dueling Bakura at the gate I go first play my cards then on turn 3 I can't draw a card this has happened more times than it doesn't also if I go 2nd I am supposed to be able to draw and can't. how the hell am I supposed to win when I lose my first draw. I contacted konami twice but no reply I guess they are too busy helping other people. So any help would be much obliged. Thanks Sal.

thank you for the reply...I'm sorry nerfed what does that mean it is buggy or not usable? Yes I'm using restart.

I don't have so many cards and Aroma cards you could get from the trader so that is the deck I'm trying to use and it said to use restart still it's hard to get 6-7000 with the cards

It was one of the most used skill the last fe months (and more). To keep the game more balanced, Konami made it less appealing by adding a condition like giving up the draw next turn.
You could still farm with aromages by using LP boost Alpha. For Example:

Again thank you very much for the reply I will try to use life points boost thanks. I can't believe Konami just destroyed the skill I'd be willing to bet nobody uses it now with the condition anyways thank you.
I'm trying to get dark necrofear and have beaten him many times at lv 40 how many times do you have to win before you get dark necrofear from him?

The correct answer is : until you get lucky...

Number of times you duel, win or lose, doesn't affect the drop rewards.

You can be really lucky; like lose against Bakura Level 10, still get Necrofear


really unlucky, keep winning with duel assessment over 8K, but still don't get the rewards you want.

Thanks for such a quick reply wish the answer was different but fingers crossed I get lucky soon.
