Help with Gilgamesh...

#1kewldude475Posted 4/28/2013 8:35:00 PM(edited)
I have a fully leveled Crystarium with Noel and Serah (though it wasn't anywhere near efficient), a level 13 Power Crystal V. Lightning, Golbin Cheiftain, and Rav Lightning, and I just can't damage Gilgamesh enough, even with Spirit Infusion, Deshell, Deprotect, and Imperil. I can only get off 1/3 HP per stagger (partly because of Vendetta) but with that strategy, he can always get Enhance Power, which eventually kills me due to divider, and debuff spam.

And even though my V Lightning has 1401 Strength, is buffed up, Gilgamesh is debuffed, she can never seem to break the damage limit. Should I switch to Chichu for his faster attack speed?

You're missing Enspells here. That will help you get this down to two staggers. Switch RAV Lightning for Cloudburst. Just restrict the amount damage you do in the first one.

Maybe he likes doing half damage.

Oh I see. So I should just use Cloudbursts Feral Link. Which En-spell is the best for this fight? Does it really matter which one Cloudburst puts on?

It matters in the sense that Cloudburst can only be putting on Enfrost. It doesn't have the option of applying a different Enspell.

Oh I see. Why do Enspells help so much? I never really bothered with them in the XIII series.

Imperil decreases the enemy's elemental resistance by one level. In this case: Normal to Weak. En-spells grant an elemental property to an attack. So now all your attacks are hitting for double damage. Just sticking Imperil wasn't doing anything for you except helping your RAVs a bit. You've been ignoring the biggest damage modifier.

Beat him. Couldn't 5 star him, but still it's nice to beat him for a change. Thanks for the help.

Ok, my Chichu is only doing a little over 40K damage per hit even though Gilg's stagger metter is at ~650% Why is this? Gilgamesh is afflicted with Deprotect, Deshell, and Imperil, and Chichu has Enfrost, as well as Bravery casted

His abilities are as follows

Auto Bravery
Resist Physical 26%
Attack: ATB Charge II
Strength +25%
Feral Speed 2
Pack Mentality

What am I missing?
