Ultima Arrow

So, I know that this could be effective if I just learn how to use in properly. Am I supposed to whip it out when an enemy is staggered, or something cause' I whipped it out for the lulz as soon as I got it and I was pretty disappointed by the results.

I assume it's because I'm using it wrong.

You're supposed to use it on a staggered enemy to increase the chain gauge

Yeah. You use it only when an enemy is staggered and it drives up the chain gauge a lot. Also, if you change to a Commando role during the animation of Ultima Arrow, it does more damage and still drives up the chain gauge.

I had a feeling that was it.

Thanks.

It can be used on enemies with pretty high stagger gauges to get them to 999% quickly once they are staggered. Or if you switch to Com as you shoot it off it will do more damage.

Can Ultima Arrow deal as much damage as Noel's special if you change to Cerberus before it hits?

No, considering that Noel has more strength than Serah and that Meteor Javelin was made specifically to be used in the commando role. The damage formula is also different

Don't think so cause it's original purpose is just to drive up the gauge. Ultima Arrow is just a tad stronger in a commando role.

How helpful is this tactic on end game bosses? Is it worth waiting for the entire gauge to fill up, or am I just better off just going with three ravagers? I hear Caius gets pretty damn brutal towrds the end. (AND YOU CAN ONLY USE IT ONCE?!)

I've seen Ultima Arrow drop 5 digits per hit before...that's some greasy cheese, mang.
