Upon buying a ticket, you can challenge that tier as many times as you want until you defeat it. There is no penalty for dying in the Menagerie fights. When you win a Menagerie fight, you cannot challenge another one until the next reboot.

The Nova Dragon is a lightning-based superboss. It absorbs lightning and attacks itself with Thundaga every turn, healing itself for about 7,000 HP, in addition to using another attack on you. If the boss survives 10 rounds, the storm gains maximum power and the boss will start using devastating non-elemental magical attacks, as well as healing itself for more HP every round (around 16,000). It can inflict one-round Petrify and has a Shatter skill which will usually result in an instant kill. It can also inflict poison. In order to have a chance of beating this boss, you should be able to deal at least 25,000 damage per round on average to deal damage through its healing. Level 150 is probably typical to be able to kill the Nova Dragon if you have a high-damage primary job and high VIT and defenses; many character types may need to be much higher level. This is one of the most difficult bosses available in the game.
Try using a Venetian Shield or Zeidrich to protect against most elemental attacks (this only helps when the Storm is not fully charged) and Water Eater can heal from its Aqua Rake. If you deal 30k or so and can survive 10 rounds without healing, you can probably kill it before it enters the second phase. If you can't, you'll need to out-damage its strong healing and survive the strong attacks. Having a powerful auto attack and high agility will help with this.
Reward: Around 150 FP, 1000 Gold, Mission Completion
