    A Brief Explanation on How Henir Weeks are Constructed

    Hello, everyone, and welcome to my explanation of how each week in Henir's gets constructed. This guide will give some insights into how the weeks are structured, as well as how those structures can be filled in by the various boss groups Henir's has to offer.

    Per the usual, I'll offer two different ways to learn of this material. (No matter what path you take, you'll learn roughly the same information - it is purely your preference.)

    For anyone wishing to learn via a video, a video guide is available here:





    If anyone would prefer to use text to learn about the organization, please refer to the spoiler below:

    Spoiler:
    As everyone knows, there are a total of 24 stages in each week of Henir's. Stages 15 and 24 are reserved as rest areas, while the rest are randomly filled in with bosses. However, the random nature of the boss assignments is a bit more controlled than it seems at first glance.

    To be more specific, Henir's can actually be laid out in the following manner:

    Stage 1-3
    Stage 4-6
    Stage 7 (boss)
    Stage 8-10
    Stage 11-13
    Stage 14 (boss)
    Stage 15 (rest area)
    Stage 16-18
    Stage 19-21
    Stage 22 (boss)
    Stage 23 (boss)
    Stage 24 (rest area)

    Then, what fills in each of these triplets of stages and singular "boss" stages?

    We'll start with the triplets. The following groups of three consecutive boss stages have consistently appeared together in Henir weeks, and always in the following orders within their triplets:

    -Shadow Master (x2); Helputt; Magmanta (x2)
    -Durahan and Teach; Feita minibosses; Kayak/Berauk/Dark Berauk
    -Uno Hound/Chloe; Velder minibosses; Crow Rider
    -Dryad Kenta (x2); Joaquin's Hallucination; Ignia
    -Waldo (x2), Mutated Form of Demonic Energy, Chieftain Karu
    -Chieftain Trockta (x2), Enraged Manifestation, Karis (x2)
    -Steel Anvil Sdeing (x2), Demons In and Jin, Final Karis
    -Raven (x3), Apple and Proto, Victor (x2)
    -Berthe (x2), Kayak/Bone Dragon, Sander miniboss group
    -Ifritan (x2), Type-H, Hamel miniboss group

    If you ever see the first boss of any of these triplets appear, you can know for a fact that the second and third bosses are guaranteed to appear right after, letting you prepare for the battles that are on their way.



    However, this still leaves the matter of the singular "boss" stages (7, 14, 22, and 23). Per observation, these stages are filled in by randomly selecting one boss from among the following:
    -Scar (x2)
    -Ran (x2)
    -Dekal and Science Dekal
    -Maya (x2)
    -Hernia Shield and Orb
    -Herbaon

    There's no real way to know which one of the bosses will be taken out from among these six; the best course of action you can take is to start gathering up resources in the stage just before the boss stage to give yourself every chance of emerging from the fight as the victor.



    Plan for the battles to come, and they might prove to be all the easier~.




    Lastly, if you would like to evaluate the accuracy of the information above, or would like some examples to compare my statements to, the spoiler below contains the boss schedules for several past Henir weeks:

    Spoiler:
    Each of the following weeks will be named based on their order of appearance since the Henir revamp, as well as the first day of the week their Henir schedules were in play. I leave identifying the groups the stages belong to as an exercise to anyone reading~.

    Any stage denoted "--" is a rest area, and has no boss.

    If you need more sample data for refer to, simply let me know, and I can try to obtain more schedules for your use; additionally, you can always go through the current Henir week yourself and test how well this information fits what you encounter.




    I hope this information is of help to anyone trying to prepare themselves for the wide variety of battles that Henir's can offer. If there's anything I can do to make this guide better or clearer, please tell me in this thread, and I will do all I can to help you.

    Thank you all for reading, and best of luck in your Henir runs~.

    Hmmm... I don't know if it's just me, but knowing there is an order to it, even if it is a loose one, makes it a bit less fun

    Good work though, and thanks for writing it all out!

    I've noticed how it's always feita minibosses after Teach and Durahan and the hard fights are always at stage 7/14 and 23 so I thought it'd have at least some order to it.

    Good read, thanks for taking the time to do this.

    Tbh aside from some bosses like ran dekal and maya, most of them can easily rolled over and that just makes knowing the order of the "normal stages" rather useless... The difficulty spikes in boss rooms are quite noticeable and tbh it would only matter if you knew what bosses are going to pop up.

    Then again you can just do Henir once and learn the week's order :/
