Lightning and Amodar DLC help

#1dragonsoldierPosted 11/20/2012 12:16:58 PM(edited)
Currently I'm at chapter 4 and I'm tired of waiting to get Lightning. This fight is pretty brutal though because I never grind in my RPGs. Here is what I have so far. I know the equipment i have isn't good for the fight, especially noel (since I don't control him)

everyones ATB level is 3. I am unsure about my role boosts but I know Serah's COM is 2 and Rav and Med are atleast 1 and Noels Sen and Syn are 2.

As you can tell my Red and Blue chocobo suck. I think I will progress a little further in the story so I can get a Black Chocobo to replace the Red one for this fight. And maybe capture a new Blue one.

But yeah I haven't really looked at guides much I've just fused whatever here and there, but now I'm ready to do it right. How should I re-tune thise mofochocos to defeat our lovely hero and her ugly sidekick?

Also! Do you think the Commando Lightning DLC and the Nabaat DLC might be easier with this team? I do not have them yet but plan to get them. And if getting them could help me win this I'd be ready to do it.
Enough expository banter! Now we fight like men! And ladies! And ladies who dress like men!

If you can, get an Early Peaker COM and RAV to sub in for Red and Blue. Chances are they'll be very cheap to raise, caps at level 20, and their stats are going to be several times better then the Chocobos.

Since Noel and Serah don't have MED, you'll probably want to consider a having a few paradigms with Noel or Serah as a fulltime SEN tank and using the Serah and monster for attacks and heals and whatnot. If they had MED I would instead advise switching out Green Chocobo for a monster SEN.

Others can offer advice specific to the battle, as I don't own any DLC.

Wow, talk about gimping your characters.... get yourself a Kichu or Fencer, goblin chief is good for SEN, Flanitor is almost a MUST until White Chocobo

So much work needs to be done here

COM Lightning is pretty helpful in any fight, try to get her as soon as possible if you can, since there are no prerequisites to getting her. She's also very useful in the PuPu DLC fight too actually (she blitzes them like crazy)

You might be better off starting over truthfully. I can take Light and Amodar around the time of having Meteor Javelin and Ultima Arrow available (11 crystariums... crystaria? Hmm...) but I also have SAB for Serah, MED for Noel, and 5 ATB bars. Since monster SABs suck and player SYNs also suck, you have double sucked yourself. Of course... this game is easy enough without optimizing so you'll EVENTUALLY be fine but if you want to have RAV Light ASAP then you should probably have a build more suited to that fight.

Also, the COM Lightning DLC doesn't require you to fight with Serah, Noel, and their monster so you can do that at any time and have her join your party right away. Just skip the cutscenes for now because it kind of spoils the ending.
