Are you sure Chichu was not under Pain (which would cause him to cast Ruin instead of attacking)?

Yes, I believe I remember seeing him attack close to the opponent and the hitstun appeared to have frost coming from it. Also, his attack is over 1300.

I'm considering switching out Goblin Chieftain for Yakshini, but I doubt it'll help to be honest. Does Yakshini's Feral link cast En-spells? Also, since I messed up my Crystarium, I either have to choose between low Strength/Magic stat and immune to Pain/Fog, or I can choose to have (relatively) high strength and magic and be susceptible to fog/pain.

Okay I put Siphon Boost II on my Chichu and it has helped a lot. Came pretty close to 5 staring him (He had about 1 million HP left) but Gilg put Pain on my Noel moments before I could start Meteor Javelin >.>

You could try giving him Role Resonance and switching to Cerberus, that might give a bit of a damage boost.

I actually put Role Resonance on him a bit before that try.

Also, should I stagger him fairly quickly, or take it slow? And what do you recommend building the chain gauge to? I usually get it to around ~650% before going Cerberus.

Im guessing your probably missing Adrenaline as well. 40k damage at 650% chain still seems low even without all the things you were missing.

You could probably beat him with Hoplite as your COM if you were dedicated enough. Unless you're talking about something more concrete like 2 staggering him. There are at least 13 different COMs that you can pull it off with.

Yeah, i did it for the lulz, just cause V.Lightning is too mainstream, and i like to be a hipster.... So ive done it with Omega, Don Tonberry, Proto Behemoth, Red Chocobo, and Fencer.... Sure it takes a little longer and strategy needed to be adjusted, but it was fun battles

I out adrenaline on him fairly recently, but I didn't notice that during my infusion, it took away the ability that makes your ATB charge on attack. All in all, my damage seems inconsistent, and I'm thinking it's due to me sometimes being unlucky with eerie soundwave. Sometimes (like my last try) I get him down to 58K, others my first stagger only does about 1/3 of his HP bar, which probably hurts my 5 star rating.

But the worst thing in all this is that I screwed up my Crystarium on this save file. I'd have t go collect a ton of fragments on the other if I were to face him with a decent setup. Since I've played through the game with messed up Crystariums, and with properly leveled ones, I see how much of a difference it makes.

One very important question I have is, does Gilgamesh use Enhance Power if you take him below 5 million HP, but his weapon regen gives him over 5 million again?
