Let's use Light monsters from the beginning

Here is a list of Light-attribute monsters that are easy to get and available from the early stage of the game. Build a deck that contains those monsters and summon them as much as you can even in the initial phase. See also the following 2 tricks:

  • Do not set, flip summon, or special summon them. It is said that only normal summon is applicable although that is unconfirmed.
  • If your Monster Zone is full with LIGHT monsters, conduct tribute summon. Or switch their battle position to defense, then standard duelists will attack your monster that have low DEF, and you can summon the next one.

How to increase Life Points

Set LP Boost skills to your deck and use cards that regenerate your Life Points to complete one of Ishizu unlock missions, win a Duel against Ishizu with at least 6000 LP remaining. Joey, Tea, and Mai can acquire LP Boost skills by leveling up, and other also can acquire them as drop (duel reward) skill.

Just a suggestion, you might want to tribute spam Excelon. Not only will it count as 3 light summon, you also get 2 effect activation

how to unlock her , i've summoned over 400 light monsters , but she's nothing appears
anoymous 1/1/1970
Just unlocked her recently. maybe you think you have summoned that much, but really isnt. You have enough light monsters in deck? I use Yugi with power of dark and Rogue Dolls (Pegasus), Element Magicians, and The Stern Mystic - these monsters are spellcasters and are from light element, didnt take me long to unlock her by using them.

anoymous 1/1/1970
I've been farming with Cerberus so much you think I would have unlocked her mission by now, but I've made a deck with light monster to try and unlock her but I can't even find where I can see if I'm close to 200 or not
Dreamz 1/1/1970
I use Yami Yugi with a couple of light monsters and I manage to unlock her. I have Rogue Dolls (Pegasus), Element Magicians, and The Stern Mystic - these monsters are spellcasters and are from light element, didnt take me long to unlock her by playing this style
Nate dog 1/1/1970
I use a light deck it didn't work so how u trigger ishizu
Noble 1/1/1970
Anyone triggered ishizu in the past 2 days?
Wambus 1/1/1970
Nope. I've been spamming a 20 LIGHT monster deck with tribute summons against LV 10 Gate duel legends for the last 3 days to no avail. Really hoping they fix it soon. :(
Wambus 1/1/1970
Update: she just unlocked for me after I sent a message to the powers that be, so I don't know if they did it for me manually or if something changed. Best of luck!
Nate dog 1/1/1970
I haven't triggered her in the past 2days either
Ergo Proxy 1/1/1970
wambus , can u explain to me what do you mean by " i sent a message to the powers " do you mean u send a message to Konami Support / CS ?
