→ Tips for unlocking Ishizu Ishtar

Leveling up Ishizu is not a priority

Many of Ishizu level up reward are Gravekeeper’s card set. Although currently, the field spell “Necrovalley” are not yet available in the card pool. This makes the Gravekeeper’s theme-deck become quite weak when compared to beatdown deck in general.

Defeat her if you want to use Gravekeeper's

Most of Ishizu’s duel reward cards are Gravekeeper’s card set. However, without “Necrovalley” field spell in the card pool, it is quite difficult to construct a powerful deck based on Gravekeeper’s theme. Other monster cards that player can receive from her such as “Agido” and “Keldo” is just cards that were used in her deck in anime/manga, and useless.

how long does it take to farm a gravekeeper's chief at level 40?
it took me LOOONNNNG 4days ago
depends on your luck
Anon 9days ago
Gravekeeper's Oracle is her other main card. No animation like Chief though.
Zaramos 10days ago
Ok guys,
I was as desprate as some of you are to get this b*tch unlocked. I started with a deck full of light monsters. Did like 300-400 summons. NOTHING happened. Then I read that you have to summon 1 Light Monster 200 times. I switched to a normal beatdown deck with 3 Summoners (search for Guardian) and 1 Guardian (normal light 1650ATK). I did like 15 duels against Standart Duelists summoning the Guardian nearly every time.
Suddenly Ishizu unlocked!
So i can tell that you dont have to summon 1 Light Monster 200 times, at least not the same one, cause i didnt. Also it does not make a difference if you play effect or normal monsters. The only thing i am unsure of is if Tributing counts. In my case i think it didnt, so i ended up having 190 or so summons without tributing included when i switched to the "normal" deck.
This was by far the worst thing to unlock and do in the whole game. So i hope it might help some people.
Maybe she is simply bugged and glitched as hell and you never know when you will unlock her. (also possible)
anoymous 4days ago
If that's the worst thing in game for you, good luck farming those Enemy Controllers...
Ezekiel 10days ago
Does anyone know which is the main card of Ishizu? Like Yugi has the Dark Magician, Weevil the Insect Queen, Mai the Harpie Lady, ect. . .
anoymous 9hour ago
Did you try use trap card(blast by a tribute) i think its her main card
Grim 4days ago
no her main cards are the Gravekeeper Oracle and Visionary but they dont have animations for some reason
anoymous 10days ago
it's gravekeeper's chief. Dueled against her at lvl 40 and she has a little dialogue whenever she summons him
anoymous 18days ago
Hi admin. The unlock mission stated here is causing some confusion because the mission presented in the game itself is worded wrongly. I am certain that the mission is to unlock a specific light monster 200 times. It can be a normal or effect monster. So if you've summoned BEWD 200 times, you would trigger her unlock. Again, it is not cumulative. If you made a deck filled with 20 light monsters, a separate stat will be counted for each of those monsters depending on how many times they were already summoned.
Khorn II 7days ago
Thought it was a stage matters too but then i unlocked her at stage 27 and a friend of mine unlocked her at stage 24 or something like that
Uroucyon_GameA 17days ago
actually i think it's related to reaching a certain stage since someone confirmed this isn't the case.
Uroucyon_GameA 18days ago
It's definitely something that's confusing and a lot of people think what's written now might be incorrect, though it can be hard to confirm this but i will edit it in just in case. thx!
Sirius 18days ago
Why the hell would she be released without necrovalley?!
Josh 9days ago
Too OP?
PoloGX88 18days ago
Admin please edit that to unlock Ishizu, you need to summon 200 LIGHT-attribute monsters that have no effects on them, so normal light cards.

I've used over 400 LIGHT monsters mixed with both effect and non-effect and nothing happened.

Also if the player can keep the same cards in the deck to do this then they should
anoymous 18days ago
Nnope, BS, i pretty much only used Cerberus and just unlocked her. The only other Light monster i used was BEWD, but only a couple of times in the beginning.
Uroucyon_GameA 18days ago
so you have already unlocked her now? and confirmed normal monsters only? I believe you need to be at a certain stage for it to be unlocked, alongside the summoning of light monsters, but it's hard to be certain at when.
Vantaé 22days ago
I have unlocked Graceful Smile with her but the skill won't appear... any ideas?
Curazy L 22days ago
The skills name is actually Fairy's Smile, do have it?
Darb101 22days ago
I'm confused, whats the point of her skill "No Mortal Can Resist"?
anoymous 18days ago
Well, it IS useless compared to some of the other skills. Even 1000LP is better atm
anoymous 19days ago
same, kinda useless right now as not many ways to special summon from graveyard. And the skill can be activated only at your own phase.

Curazy L 22days ago
This skill is not as useless as it seems... U can change the opponents graveyard monster to useless monster, that means monster with graveyard effects won't trigger anymore and the opponent most likely won't special summon those monster from graveyard, etc.
Curazy L 23days ago
Add Sealed Tombs
Chronomalous 22days ago
That skill will probably be awesome in tbe future but is somewhat situational at current, I mean, there's The Shallow Grave, Twin-Headed Behemoth, and that Dinosaur-summoning trap, I don't know if players can get the first, and the second is usually a one-off. That said, a really good deck does not need the draw skills unless they are crucial to its functions, like the Cerberus deck.

I have summoned over 200 light monsters but it still won't pop up what do I do?
anoymous 23days ago
I have the same problem i summoned over 200 light monsters and still didnt got her
anoymous 26days ago
I just got her missions and unlocked her at lvl 16. I've summoned over 400 monsters with a light deck and decided I don't care and proceeded to play normal. As I beat vegabond with only 1 summoned light normal monster boom she unlocked! :D
anoymous 31days ago
I took way more than 200 to unlock her. Feels more like you have to play the same light monster 200 times.
anoymous 31days ago
my theory is, if u get the server error menu after duel, it doesn't count
anoymous 1/1/1970
Same for me i swear ive summoned 200 but nothing is happening. Do i have to be at a certain stage in order to do it?
anoymous 1/1/1970
How to complete the quest "Win a Duel against Ishizu Ishtar with at least 6000LP remaining" when u just have 4000LP?
anoymous 31days ago
Use Tea with the +2500LP skill at level 13. Then proceed to dual a LvL 10 Ishizu, which should be easy win even with 2 card handicap. Or use Joel +1000Hp skill + healing spell.
GameA1 1/1/1970
What does "how to save the duel" mean?
anoymous 1/1/1970
Thank you very much GameA1. Do you know how to save the duel?
GameA1 1/1/1970
You have to use card that regenerate your Life Points in that case.
anoymous 1/1/1970
By the way, how to save the duel guys?
Yohan 1/1/1970
Summon 200 like monsters to unlock.
GameA1 1/1/1970
