Near-Stat-Maxing, iOS Version (Cecil Limit Break & ?????'s Love) v1.0

#1Chaosmaster00Posted 1/26/2013 4:48:29 PM
I'm sure you know all know by now, after you reach level 70, your stat upgrades from Lv71 through 99 are all dictated on the augments you have equipped. This time around, though, I have formulated a setup for getting the most out of your "Love" augment combined with the single Limit Break augment you are given.

Now, for anyone wondering "Why Cecil?" If nothing else, one good reason why, besides getting the most of the Love augment itself: Ultima. Using Twincast in tandem with Rosa or Fusoya, for 99 MP each, casts this penultimate attack, whose Magic Attack of 999 is nearly 4 times greater than that of Meteor or Bahamut. Make no mistake, this move single-handedly can turn
he tides of battle, and it would be a shame to NOT have Limit Break and disgrace its potential... just saying.

Anyways, on to move/augment allocation (since I have found some skills they started with useful for topping off stats rather than just wasting augments you could prefer on others):

Limit Break x1 .| Cecil
Rosa's Love x1 .| Cecil (for this guide's sake)
Twincast x1. . .| Cecil
Whirlwind x3. . | Kain. | Rosa. | Edge
Piercing Magicx1| Kain
Tsunami x3 . . .| Kain. | Rydia | Rosa
Phoenix x2 . . .| Kain. | Rydia
Inferno x3. . . | Kain. | Rydia | Rosa
Bardsong x1. . .| Rydia
Last Stand x1. .| Rydia | Edge
Hide x1. . . . .| Rydia
Fast Talker x1. | Rosa
Curse x1. . . . | Edge
Omnicasting x1 .| Edge
Aim. . . . . . .| Rosa
Ninjutsu. . . . | Edge



Now, for the final countdown... literally. Here's the way you gotta have them on to get your stats as maxed as they can be:

1) Limit Break Lv71-99 (+29 ALL)

~~~~~

So, with all that said and done, you might be wondering what to do with Rydia. Well, good news is, with some easily-acquired gear, you can fix that. No need for Adamant Armor! The Dragon Whisker whip, dropped from Blue Dragons, gives a +3 bonus to Speed/Intellect/Spirit, which will bring her Spirit to 99, and a Protect Ring, gotten from chests in the Lunar Subterrane or dropped very rarely from Ahriman, will top off her Stamina from 92 to 99.

So, with Love and Limit Break on the same character, it's pretty hard to get the most of your stats, and impossible to max your base stats; however, that doesn't mean you can't get the best of it if you can make up for Rydia's losses (not that the stats she didn't max necessarily apply to her "job", but it's the aesthetics of it).

Enjoy!

I just noticed a small error in my guide that kinda throws things off more than it should...

Rydia Lv70 | 1) | 2) | 3) | 4) | 5)
...STR: 36 | 65 | 94 | 94 | 99 | 99 |
...SPD: 33 | 62 | 62 | 91 | 91 | 99 |
...STA: 34 | 63 | 92 | 92 | 92 | 92 |
...INT: 72 | 72 | 99 | -- | -- | 99 |
...SPT: 54 | 54 | 54 | 54 | 96 | 96 |



For some reason, I didn't edit her STR to its correct values when I remade this... stupid copypaste. It SHOULD look like this:

Rydia Lv70 | 1) | 2) | 3) | 4) | 5)
...STR: 36 | 65 | 94 | 94 | 94 | 94 |
...SPD: 33 | 62 | 62 | 91 | 91 | 99 |
...STA: 34 | 63 | 92 | 92 | 92 | 92 |
...INT: 72 | 72 | 99 | -- | -- | 99 |
...SPT: 54 | 54 | 54 | 54 | 96 | 96 |



Which also means her Strength will be taking a minor hit too, which none of her equips, sans Minerva Bustier, help that much with (though if you're using her offensively, she's probably not using magic anyways, and this the INT/SPT drop won't really affect her usefulness in combat).

Just wanted to put that out there... sorry for the previous incorrectness from before...

Do you have any insight into a set up for a limit break cecil with ????love augment on kain?

Also, i didnt know fusoya could use ultima. I might rethink giving tellah twincast!
#5Chaosmaster00(Topic Creator)Posted 2/24/2013 7:01:53 AM
Not really. Why would you give ?????'s Love to Kain and give the only Limit Break to Cecil, when Kain has the more-than-effective Jump skill and, when at max level, your regular Attacks with Onion Sword will generally be hitting the (9999) damage cap anyhow?

Just seems like a waste, imo... aside from slight variations in stat-maxing. I could come up with something, but I would like insight on why you would like to do this... :/

????Love is really great after 3 focuses and and a darkness enhancement but with only limitbreak as well. So if cecil is going to have limit break and be twincasting ultima, i figured someone else other than rosa should get it. I was basically toying around with some variations of your already impressive setups.
#8Chaosmaster00(Topic Creator)Posted 2/24/2013 7:46:31 PM
Rosa only got it in my other setups because of stat-maxing, really... coming up with a new setup wouldn't be hard; just pool together the two peoples' augments that they WOULD have gotten, and reassign as necessary.

I can come up with a more comprehensive list later.
#9neoallbrittPosted 2/25/2013 1:24:16 PM
thanks for your input, dont mean to bug ya. i was just seeing if Rosa had to have it or if it was a preference of yours to give it to her. i think i can come up with something, i wasn't looking for you to "build" an augment designation or anything...thats half the fun!
