    I had some trouble with this due to losing my characters to ring outs, so I made the following and got to 20 first time:

    Asteroth lvl 9

    Attack: 141%
    Defense: 103 %
    HP: 150%

    Skills: HP Drain A, Nullify Ring Out A
    Weapon: Nanbanfu

    Kit:

    Asura Helm
    Round Glasses
    Guardian's Neck Cloth
    Guardian's Pauldrons
    Loincloth
    Changpao
    Ryukyu Guantlets
    Guiman Yecha
    Shinobi Tabi
    Shinobi Greaves

    I finished with both characters at almost full health. Hope this helps anyone with the same problem - some of those characters love to do sudden combos against the edge of the ring that send you out!

    I followed v CoMpLiCaTiOnZ's guide but with a few changes here and there,

    I made the same astaroth he has ( but copied it twice ), then I added shave damage C ( always usefull when they're protecting )

    Enter the tower of lost souls and click descend, then keep spamming this move with Astaroth ( yes this is a cheap way to get it, but atleast it'll get you the trophy ;) )

    Diagonal ( back down ) + X and while he is turning to slam the oponent hold forward + Y ;)

    (Thank you V0CALICMAX ) for the combo ;)


    Remember to switch in time if you're almost K.O. and keep using that move, with the abilities like v CoMpLiCaTiOnZ's you'll get your lives back in no time, in first try I got to level 25 ( where 2kittens kicked my ass xD )


    Well I hope this helps ;)

    This setup got me to Floor 28 with near full health, though I made a lot of mistakes and ended up losing here. Though, I'm sure with enough fortune and skill, this is a viable 40 floor duo.

    --First Character (Main, your tank, and a power demon. Similar to Fatboyy's Astaroth, but the Round Glasses enables Auto Impact B, and you'll likely need every Impact you can get here)--

    Male Astaroth Style
    Weapon: Great Maul
    Style Level: 8+

    Nightmare Helmet
    Oval Glasses
    Dark Knight's Cloak
    Usurper's Spaulders
    Usurper's Suit
    Caretaker's Breastplate
    Guardian's Gauntlets
    Warrior Trousers
    Shinobi Tabi
    Death's Boots

    -Skills-
    HP Drain A
    Auto Impact B
    Start Dash B
    Auto Counter C

    -Stats-
    Attack: 153%
    Defense: 114%
    HP: 100%

    --Second Character (Alternate, used when first gets tired/low HP, also helps keep AI on toes and avoid stale, predictable moves)--

    Male Yun-seong Style
    Weapon: Qing Long
    Style Level: 8+

    Hero's Band
    Masquerade
    Dark Knight's Cloak
    Demonic Pauldrong
    Protective Tattoo
    Worker's Shirt
    Caretaker's Gauntlets
    Slacks
    Bandages
    Guardian's Boots

    -Skills-
    Will Power
    HP Drain A
    Start Dash A
    Auto Impact A

    -Stats-
    Attack: 129%
    Defense: 100%
    HP: 104%

    Good luck! Hopefully you get some use out of these guys. Remember, use Discus Breaker with Astaroth (down+back X, hold Y). Use Avenging Claws with Yun-seong. (forward Y, hold Y) And, never forget to add some kicks and other little combos every so often to keep the AI off guard. They may not seem like good chars for descent due to the lack of HP Burst, but they're very workable due to HP Drain A, and that also allows a semi-soloable run if you get a ring out or have a bad floor. Your solo guy has a shot!
