How to farm Lvl 40


Useful "Peak Performance" skill

Since Kaiba was one of the characters that player that new players could obtain when beginning the game. Peak performance provides an advantages for decks containing Dragon and Winged-Beast type monsters such as “Faith Bird” and “Skull Red Bird”. It is suggested for new players to stick with this skill at first, as it gives upper hand advantages for boosting attack points of the monster.

Beat down, Draw Sense: High-level, and Heavy Starter (drop)

Just as in Yu-gi-oh anime, Kaiba deck strategy are beatdown type which focuses on High attack points monster and summoning stronger high-level monster such as Blue-Eyes White Dragon. These skill sets of Kaiba are suitable with supporting deck that could do fast summoning or be able to special summon high-level monster (e.g. “Lord of D.” and “The Flute of Summoning Dragon” combo deck).

Spend Gate Key to see him!

Represented by Enemy Controller and Battle Ox, Kaiba’s duel reward cards are the most useful and should be well spent when players are able to duel Kaiba level 40 at the gate (Not suggest to duel with level 30 or below) or start farming when there are special events that give extra duel assessment score for players.

I made a tutorial on how to farm Seto Kaiba using a specialized Cat's Ear Tribe deck I created. It's extremely consistent and is by far the best way to farm Kaiba right now.

I show the deck in the video and also an example duel of how to use it against Level 40 Kaiba. Hope this helps everyone:

Help... the skill Peak perfomace is gone.... it simply vanish from the skill page.
Magnus 18days ago
So just to understand something. Right now we can only duel with level 30 LD in the gate right? Or did I missed out on something to unlock level 40 LD?
Zero 20days ago
I was dueling a Kaiba player yesterday and right at the Starting hand, he shuffled all his cards into the deck amd drew 4 cards. Very much like Kieths Restart skill if not exact
anoymous 22days ago
I just reached level 30. Why does the game say I'm already at max level? This says I should go up to 40 at least.
Daemon Blitzkrieg 22days ago
This is fighting against Kaiba & the levels of his Decks. Your player himself/herself can only reach up to Stage 30.
anoymous 24days ago
any idea on a good farming deck against him? my cerberus- and baou-decks are way to inconsistent due to his enemy controller. even 3x riryoku field won't help much, since you need to draw it until the second turn latest, or else he will wreck you if you don't summon cerberus/baou.

Maybe they can set up a rule where you can only use a maximum of 3 UR and 8 SR in a Deck.
