    Huh. Dark Cloud is getting tech that isn’t KH-specific. Good for him.

    You know, I think phoenix might actually be doable with that infinite relm usb strategy that got posted here a bit back. So much for following the wheel.

    Phoenix seems like one of the most reasonable ones to do a primarily damage-reflect strategy on, because it just spews out so much damage, so fast, all the time, in nice convenient AOEs, without any damage reduction on itself. It does self-heal quite a bit though, especially once it gets to overtime, so I imagine you do want to have at least some real DPS.

    I have Bartz USB and Tidus CSB. They use Ignis for some kind of buff but I am hoping chain is enough. They also have ruby abilities but I don't need to sub 30. Maybe instead of tyro god wall I should try Alphinaud to add shield in. I can manually shell and protect, have to use wall RW instead of fabula raider. Might be worth trying.

    Updating my spreadsheet, looking at that Gogo Bravery USB.

    I don't think it'll end up being much use for Belias, aside from being able to have two people be able to cast chain waterja (which may still end up worth it, given the first time he mimics will also be a doublecast, effectively).

    What it might end up being quite useful for is the Torment. I've got two people I could try subbing him in for, and being able to doublecast chain Firaja after Terra, adding 10 more count to the chain, seems like it could be pretty strong. I should play around with that thing (and Mog's new USB, for that matter). Pity FF6 drops bravery motes.

  • EnlongEnlong Registered User regular
    Could probably outfit him with Ultra Cure and Chain Firaga/Meltdown/Lifesiphon. The latter to be used to increment Brave if no healing is needed. I’d suggest Shellga, but if you’re using Mog’s Twilight Requiem, you won’t need it.

    Just to be absolutely sure: Ramza's LM2 extends the duration of the ATK buff portion of his BSB2 from 25 to 35 seconds, correct?

    And Phoenix down ( :P ) in 36.59. as long as I don't make too many mistakes I should be able to run this another....7 times? Ugh.

    No chain, no radiant team:
    Wakka - Wrath/MBD, USB1/USB2, LMR, Ace Striker
    Bartz - Stormspell R3/Engulfing R4, USB1/BSB2/AOSB, LM2/LMR, Love's Wake
    OK - Wrath/Entrust, pUSB, LMR, MM
    Tidus - Sapphire Bullet r3/Sapphire Shot r4, USB/bsb2, lm1/2, Scholar's Boon
    Elarra - Enfeebling Jitterbug r3/Spellbend Etude r3, USB/BSB LM1/LMR, DMT

    RW: Wall

    Magicites: Geo, Famfrit, defensive Famfrit, Evrae, quetz

    I popped Geo as soon as he was up, to give Elarra a bit of breathing room. Otherwise the SB gain in Savage is probably worth not trying to constantly break it.

    Ramzas lm2 increases the duration of the atk buff, but it doesn't help with the haste duration. You might be able to get close if you have mind boon on your magicite, though.

    Does anyone have experience with Matoya’s USB? I’m trying to decide whether to dive her (with her USB) or Shantotto (w/ BSB and LMR) for my Geocities attempts.

    I used her (alongside Rinoa's Brave Ultra and Arcane, and Onion's sage mode. Just to put that into perspective) to kill Typhon. In my opinion, it can be pretty damn good if you have the right support for it. (In my case, the support was an Ice chain and Imperil Ice from summoning Mateus). She wasn't exactly capping hits with Abyssal Shards, but she makes up for it with quantity, due to quickcast, chase, and a chance to dualcast.

    Here's a tip for it: The EX Mode grants you a turn of untyped quickcast when you use a Witch skill, right? Well, the chase attack that triggers when you hit a weakness, Tceles Nuttob B, is itself a Witch skill, and counts for getting that quickcast. So you can give her Chain Thundaga instead of Sudden Thunder, to use on the first turn after turning on the Ultra. That will be less important after we get the 5-star speedcasting Witch skills, of course.

    I personally would advocate her over Shantotto, but I don't have experience with using Shantotto's Trance mode, so it might be good to seek a second opinion about her.

    Geocities was made with Shantoto trance in mind. First attack instantly puts her in trance mode. Trance mode is really good if you are trying to do damage at the start of the battle and you usually are.

    What Soul breaks did each person have, if you don’t mind my asking?

    I assume you had Laguna’s Chain, rather than one of his Imperils?

  • silence1186silence1186 Character shields down! As a wingmanRegistered User regular
    So with some 5* Magicite I thought I'd re-examine some old Torments.

    I remember seeing this clear: https://old.reddit.com/r/FFRecordKeeper/comments/8y8jgr/clutch_d_sub30_fft_torment_victory/ several months ago, and thought I could do most it, but I wasn't going to make Aegis Strike just for the extra SB for TG Cid. Fast forward to now, and Healing Smite is a thing, so that slotted in nicely.

    Ended up lowering my clear time from 40.05 seconds to 31.5 seconds, which is a big deal. I only have Agrias OSB, none of her Imperil stuff, so damage sort of petered out right at the end, and it went just over 30 seconds. Not sure if I can tighten anything up and squeeze those last few seconds out. It might just be RNG for W-cast and Imperil procs, which doesn't sound fun at all. The struggle continues.

    E: Hmm, if I Legend Dive Ramza, Shout would last the whole fight, instead of falling off at 25 seconds. His Dive category is kind of barren, so it might be worth it from an opportunity cost perspective.

    Ok, so follow up. I did end up Legend Diving Ramza, but it still wasn't working/wasn't enough (argh). So I did a crazy, desperate thing. My Sub Magicite were pretty standard. Two Evrae, one with Fast Cast, and one with Health Boon. A Seraph with another Dark Resist. A Phoenix with Blade and Spell Ward, for general defense boost.

    My main Magicite was Siren, for the party holy boost, and chance to cast Protectga, for Guardbringer's 5th hit. It also had DEF Boost, from previous iterations where I thought 100 extra DEF would help Marche hit 5 hits on Guardbringer without Protectga (I still couldn't get there, even sacrificing a +Holy armor). Since the DEF boost wasn't doing anything, I fed Siren my level 99 Manticore, for 10% Crit Chance increase.

    The Bad news: I need to farm four more copies of Manticore (thankfully I hadn't inherited anything onto it yet).

    The Good news: I notched my clear time down from 30.5 seconds to 29.75 seconds! Huzzah! VICTORY!

    I was basically rolling a TON of dice, and hoping enough came up my way to get over the finish line. The more things went my way earlier, the better, because of a higher chain count and stacking imperils causing a force multiplier making everything afterwards stronger.
    For Orlandeau, Agrias, and Marche, it was chance to dual cast.
    For Agrias and Ovelia, it was chance to Imperil 1 for 15s.
    For Marche, it was if and how early Siren put up Protectga for the 5th Guardbringer hit.
    For everyone it was the new 10% chance to crit.

    The variance on numbers was crazy, but I eventually got there. Phew! This one feels a bit more earned, despite copying someone, because I had to make some tweaks and do a lot of practice, vs my FF7 sub 30 which was just mathematically calculated to succeed based on someone else's data.

    Execution wise, Orlandeau and Marche's turns were almost synchonized, so almost every time I had to wait for Marche to finish casting, wait a frame for Quickcast to trigger, and then wait ANOTHER frame to start casting, or else I'd miss the Quickcast. Not being able to mash buttons when I desperately want to kill the stupid boss faster took a bit of discipline and focus.

    Nice.

    It's a nice get, but I think I actually prefer her brave. Having an on-demand overflow attack is really good for keeping the damage running on Manticore and being able to knock him out of rage mode
