Based on Duel Assessments

The amount of score is based on the conditions players achieve in a duel. The more amount of score can be obtained as the achieved assessments are difficult.

One Reward by 1,000 Score

Players can obtain one reward per 1000 score when winning a duel. For example, when the score is 2000 or more but less than 3000, you can get 2 rewards.


Over 6,000 score

Quick Victory and Comeback Victory can be active at the same time and gives you score of 2,500. Not easy to achieve two of them in a duel, but not impossible.

Over 9,999 Damage and Cards on the Brink

To achieve those two is the most popular way to get high score from Legendary Duelists. See the list of cards that can increase their ATK over 10,000.

Quick Victory and No Damage

Quick Victory and No Damage are the easiest conditions to achieve. Using high stats monster cards and equip spell may also allow you to achieve Over 3000 Damage.

Depends on your opponent

If your opponent use spell cards decreasing your life points, LP on the Brink will be easier to achieve. Understanding cards in the opponent's deck is important.

There's no benefit to getting above 8000 in anything other than gate events. I wouldn't worry about it.

40000 point duel assessment is a stage mission for 5ds now. How do I get past this?

You don't need to do it in 1 go, it's cumulative.
Hey, This has probably been mentioned somewhere before but i figured id add it just in case cause i haven't seen one but this deck is pretty easy to attain with f2p through Trader and Special Missions. 8300 is consistently achievable for your LD farming. Pretty much just aromage + ra with your and Life Boost-α Fragrance storm for card draw horseytail as tech if you want to make 9999+ easier. Only downside is Enemy Controller but meh not every LD runs it and you can run tech cards for specific LDs

This is a great farming deck with lots of variety! I only had 1 Jasmine, but as long as you can substitute with another plant type monster it's fine. Neither do I have treacherous traphole or parallel requester, but you can simply run Dian Keto instead. After summoning Ra you can use them to regen 1k lp each to pop Ra's 2nd effect to clear the path for a direct attack.

Can't see the cards, way too small. What is does the deck consist of? I can only figure out Ra.

Aromage Jasmine, Bergamot, Rosemary, Aromage Garden and I believe there's also a Fragrance Storm.

Based on the previous comments and some looking over the card trader list, I think these are the cards in the picture. Let the blurry image madness stop:

x1 The Winged Dragon of Ra
x3 Aromage Jasmine
x2 Rose Lover
x2 Aromage Bergamot
x3 Aromage Rosemary
x1 Horseytail
x1 Twister
x3 Fragrance Storm
x3 Aroma Garden
x1 Treacherous Trap Hole

What could I do
Man I need such a huge score to Unlock crow u.u and last time I tried even with 2 prismatic vampires I couldn't make it past 4900 points u.u

I unlocked him when 5ds world came out.I suggest u to use Trinity Hero and try to win in 1 turn plus the black crystal(result booster).If this can't work then u may try to create a deck that can stall and increase your lp as u can summon the winged dragon of Ra with high atk

Use ra
If I play a glossy card from my hand as part of a fusion summon, will I the assessment score for playing it? Or does it have to touch the field?
Wouldn't maju garzette e good way for 9999+ atk points

Yes, but you'll gonna have to tribute 2 Five-Headed Dragon for it to have that 10k ATK necessary for the assessment.

Good luck getting 2 FHD into the field.

I'd imagine they were referring to Great Maju Garzett, which would only require 1 FHD.

That being said, 2 FHD in a grinding duel isn't super-impossible given Future Fusion and Chazz's skill that gives Dragon's Mirror.

Can Garzett be used with Pirhana Army/Union Attack?
I've been reaching 7000-8000 points within 10 turns using this fur hire ra deck! Very simple to use: clean your opponent's field with your fur hire's effects, and thin out your deck with beat until you draw different dimension capsule or ra itself. Use mayhem so you can swarm your field even with ra on it! It's a cheap fast farming deck!!!

Luta de revanche, você precisa estar com seus LP abaixo do oponente (tipo, oponente com 4000 e você com 2000) aí você vai e vira o jogo, ou seja, mesmo com LP menor que o do oponente (tem que ser uma diferença considerável, geralmente eu deixo cair 2k de diferença pra virar o jogo) e ganha.

what about summoning divine monsters (have to have been originally divine; for instance a swamp mirrorer trap card summoned as divine monster doesn’t count towards this)
Does anyone know if tokens count as monsters destroyed? I think not

On a related note, repeatedly attacking apophis when NPC has tiki gives 10 monsters destroyed, too (and the AI always chooses to re-set it, which is a cheap way to stall while setting up your 10000+ hit against It's All Traps during a double gate key event).

Best is when the AI has Tiki and 2 Apophis.

You can keep attacking Apophis without having to worry about other backrow cards, since Tiki makes the two Apophis stuck to the field, permanently locking their S/T zones.

In this game words may have different meanings for example how a fusion summon isn’t a special summon but in reality it is. The game can have different terminology so don’t judge someone for not yet having that knowledge. You wouldn’t want people calling you an idiot if you just started learning to build cars.We Need this world to be a better place! YOUR AMAZING for attempting to help!

Honestly why be so rude. How does it benefit your life? Do you really have nothing better to do then abuse people over the internet. Well I hope you realize your mistake and revert to the amazing person youve been before!
Brings it something, like a better chance of a UR/SR, when I get a High score about 10.600 ?

Very technically, in that you have more rewards and so more chances. Each reward has the same chance still though.

So it brings nothing. 8000. Not more or less.

You have a higher chance when battling higher level AI players or LD’s. Pay attention and test it if you want duel 5 times a lv10 then a lv40.Happy To Help!
Does special summoning a fusion monster count as performing a fusion summon?

I agree, also a square is a perfect rectangle lol. If you don’t know what your taking about shut up

A fusion summon is ALWAYS a special summon lmao

The issue here is that there is a difference between special summoning a fusion monster, and fusion summoning a fusion monster.

Basically, if you special summon a fusion monster using anything whose card text does not explicitly call it as a "fusion summon", then it's not a fusion summon.
<< Anonymous
2ndCommenter;I agree Reply
Exactly, so your thinking to literally because we all think of the definition of special being unique or different. Which leads to the conclusion that a fusion summon must be a special summon but in the terminology of the game it isnt.
