buffs and debuffs man. thats all most of the hard fights are. its been a while since i faught so i forget my tactic but keeping haste up, and slow on orhan at all times will make the fight much easier. Not the best answer but give it a try. comptonasstyler - 7 years ago
Use the bully paradigm and once he is impareled, deshelled, and deprotected, use the delta attack paradigm. If you need to heal use the solidarity or the combat clinic paradigm. Once you stagger him, use the agression paradigm. On the second orphan battle, use billy again, then swich to relentless assault and once he is staggered use agression. Dragon0640 - 7 years ago
If it's that damn Merciless Judgement attack that's giving you a headache and wiping you out, I found that having a Sentinel in my party reduced the damage BIG TIME. My party was Fang, Hope and Vanille sticking to their main crystarium routes and as long as I switched to a SEN / HEA / HEA paradigm just as he was about to power up that attack then I could survive and heal quickly.
Although I haven't read this tip anywhere else, so if it's a fluke then I must've got a special disk... keroppi_therapy - 7 years ago
Teach vanille & sazh sentinel also sazh medic teach snow medic have vanille use poison until it works have sazh as medic and snow on sentinel. then sazh and snow sentinel vanille as medic when poison runs out put back merciless judgment just have three sentinels the after wards three medics then just repeat.

Hey y'all. I've been playing games for ages but I only recently got into Final Fantasy, specifically FFXIII trilogy haha So for anyone still struggling with Orphan, here's the strategy I used:
Lightning, Hope, Vanille (all of them had their primary roles maxed out to Level 4).
-Gladius * level (Lightning)
-Ninurta * level (Hope)
-Binding Rod level 10 (Vanille)
Start off in Configuration 3; he uses Merciless Judgement pretty quickly. Heal everyone to full health and then go into P1, so that you can begin staggering him whilst using buffs and debuffs. Once you're powered up enough/he's weak enough, switch to P4 and finish staggering him. Or, if you need to heal but want to remain on the offense, use P5. From there, switch to P2 and wail on him. Once his stagger period completes, switch back to P1 (by now, his debuffs and your buffs would have faded). Whenever he uses Merciless Judgement, or you need to heal, switch to P3. Continue like this until you win.
So! Much! Easier! You can use the same characters and therefore the same paradigms. You won't have to heal as often because his attacks are infrequent and less damaging. However, you have a time limit of 4000-5000 seconds. Use P4 to stagger him; you can't damage him unless you stagger him. Then switch to P2 or P5 and wail on him. Heal when necessary. Continue like this and you'll win. If you do lose, you'll just fight his second form, not his first form. However, it's highly unlikely that you'll lose to him. whitechocobo - 2 years ago
hey, whitechocobo, you still have tier 1 weapons? i had maxed out tier 2 for everyone, and a level 56 kains lance at this point! PS if he used consumate light or consumate dark, hes about to use merceliss judjment, so get as many sens as possible, the the rest of the pary as meds. lynx01234 - 10 months ago
