setup miqote with morgensten locket pendant dawn gauntlet
midnight mauve with chaos revenge silk scarf white strap
quiet guardian with whatever weapon you like preta hood runic ring
3 ethers used, 1 phoenix down and 2 nectar of god omega
0 star, 4:33
i didnt save coz i want to do some minor adjustment and try again
fight goes: - usual strategy. fira and switch to qg when its spell is near. then continue fira till atb gone and find a window to oc - block its magnet, perfect block its megatron charge and keep guarding after - certain death if hellfire comes even if perfect blocked - once final stagger done, nectar of gods and magic slash. switch to qg when its spell is near. when atb used up, find window of opportunity to oc. - thats it!
note on retries: - try using the reduced atb cost accessory on stagger garb to see if its better - try using electronica with +maximum atb accessory and compare the stagger time against ra spells garb
hmmmmmmm, Was there a reason you didn't try L'autome for Thundara rather than Fira? It's a small difference but I guess I'm just habituated to defaulting to Thundara as the spell of choice for enemies with no outstanding resists/weakness
Also, I'm just a wee bit proud you've used Double Jump in quite a few fights. It's one thing to succeed in game with a strategy you discovered but it's another thing to see someone else succeed with your suggestion. I can feel my ego expanding as I speak
That Aeronite fight is better than my first Aeronite kill, 8 minutes on the dot, zero stars 2 X-pots 1 pheonix wing 2 Nektars and a Turbo Ether
I was busy working on my "project" (Obtain at least 1 copy of every skill possible, maxed, as well as all items/weapons/shields/garbs/accessories and complete every quest excepting the rare case where completing one quest fails another... and do it in a single NG on normal. I've sold around 400 death heralds for the gil needed for this, and just about every species has to be carefully managed to ensure drops. lots of reloading. So I do a bit here and there inbetween doing less... insane things.)
But if I wasn't busy I'd have said perhaps extincting a few species for accessories like warrior hunter's mask for Brave Thief without being tied to the Believer which would allow you more oomph from Hunter of the Wild.
And when you extinct those skeletons, Deprotect Hunter coming from amazon warrior is pretty high DPS (though it wont last long since speed slash can tear through atb like nothing.... Maybe sparrow comb could be useful here?
bakuri, i did try la automne on first failed attempt. i used midnight mauve, la automne and miqote. it was terrible with just one defend garb. had to burn through all my 5 ethers and 1 turbo to get to the final stagger. then i just cant continue because there's no more atb. decided to just use mm because of the starting atb.
was also thinking about getting bandit scarf but it was just too boring to farm the sahagins to use the equip for just two more fights.
currently, i at the most boring part of the game: farming for monsters' part for canvas quests.
You're doin work, some of those omegas could be tough.....but just 2 more bosses to go.
you said it! skeleton and skatane were insane.
day 13 9:15am: - ERESHKIGAL DEFEATED!!! - 5 stars, 1:32 - used 1 ether and 1 hero potion
setup: la automne with hades pride witch rosary thorn of speed
urban outlaw with chaos revenge falcon charm dawn gauntlet
miqote with morgensten fighter emblem thorn of will
battle goes: - fly up with a magic slash - alternate the 4 ra spells with some magic slashes without finisher inbetween - needed one oc to finally take it to last stagger - hero potion, magic slash and oc spam with an ether once ep ran out - luckily i staggered it in time before it can cast protect and shell
currently will go back to every floor to kill all last ones. still have to collect the refresher and another ether in there.
