Way to kill Cactuar King?

#1DarkefkaPosted 7/20/2010 12:39:22 PM
Is there a way to kill Cactuar King in NSG? since neither my character nor the aeons won't ever touch him... (keep in mind that I can't have Anima yet i'm before at Gagazet and I want to get Blessed Gems...) I'm not allowed of Trio either... the Aeons, well for the storyline thing I don't use them but against some things unbeatable without I won't mind, I prefer breaking NS rule than NTQ if I have to break one

Yeah, and if the counter increases by Cactuar King's own attacks, then it should be impossible to beat it in NSG without Aeons or Trio/Quartet, except Rikku spamming with Dark Matters maybe...

is there any other way to get Blessed Gems, more reliable then? other than rare steals? Since I need a bunch for BFA, I don't want to take like 10 hours to get 10 Blessed Gems...

Didn't we talk about this before? Multiple people have vouched for the quality of KADFC's item faq. USE IT

Rare steals are looking good... especially if you customise [Master Thief]

Even if you don't allow customising, all the monsters are available in the arena (so you don't need to go hunting for them each time), and a 1/4 chance isn't that terrible. You would be looking at approximately 40 battles to get 10 Shining Gems, so I reckon that would be 2 hours, allowing 3 minutes for each battle, including loading times and animations.

Of course, Rikku would need a [first strike] weapon, or you will have to rely on switching her in every battle, then switching out afterwards. That will increase the time you need.

Meh... Customisation FTW :P

everything the faq lists are rare steals. also drops from cactuar king. so in his defense he did read the faqs. that said, can't you use master thief?
