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.

That's incredibly easy. Just go fight Level 10 Jaden at the gate, and either let him hit you with a direct attack or two, or use cards like Abyssal Designator to lower your LP. Just keep in mind your LP need to have been lower than Jaden's the turn before you win. (So you can't drop your LP and win in the same turn.)

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.
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?
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

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!!!

not that you need to anyway
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)
I saw a match that their lp was over 60000 how could this happen?

Probably something like an Aromage deck with Nutrient Z, Draining Shield, and Aegis of Gaia. That's only like 21k plus something like 14k from Aroma Garden after a long duel and whatever Draining Shield can get.

The Ra-Kiseitai deck can reach enough LP to give Ra its max 65,355 ATK.
