    i think it goes without saying that I will be putting Synergy Squall at the forefront of my RW for you guys.

    I mean, augmented Cutting Trigger, +1 XIV Gauntlets, Vossler's Gauntlets, I'm pretty sure Blasting Zone will rip Adel a new one.

    Fuck those skeletons. Can't even turn around while my team autos through this event that they kill one of my characters... and they're part of the trash in almost every stage too.

    Due to the drain counter and since I seem to only fucking get Melee relics, thinking this for Ultimate

    Lenna w/ Curaja R5 and Shellga R1 Healing Materia
    Cloud w/ Drain Strike R4 Lifesiphon R4 Ace Striker Materia
    Squall w/ Drain Strike R4 Launch R5 Pride of the Red Wings Materia
    Sazh w/ Magic Breakdown R3 Full Break R1 Mako Might Materia
    Yuffie w/ Dismissal R4 Shadowsteel R4 Heroic Stance Materia

    RW be either Flames of War or Hymn

    WTF is up with the last wave of soldiers? Twice in a row the last wave does ~3k AOE to everyone and I swear to fuck my grimoire wasn't down. O_o

    1/1 on all. Adel almost felt easier before first Ultima since "she" was using AoE nukes.

    For her, I used:
    Lightning: Life Siphon, Launch, Knight's Charge
    Cecil: Armor Strike, Memento of Prayer, Self-Sacrifice
    Tyro: Magic Breakdown, Full Break, Mako Might
    Selphie: Curaja, Shellga, Mog's Teachings
    Tifa: Tempo Flurry, Armor Break, Dragoon's Determination

    Lightning had a 6* VIII sword equipped, so that helped to juice her SSB. Tifa was just to build her SB with a bit of damage, use Armor Break, then pop that to buff Lightning for her barrage. Tyro just kept breaks and SG up. Cecil Regen'd the group at start, got Lunatic High RW up, and Armor Striked otherwise. Selphie did what healers do.

    Last wave is said to be strongest.. I remember this hellish nightmare from JP version and it took me many many tries... I plan on putting up Wall before that wave and using all my AoE SB's and hoping I floor them before they get rapey. Might bring Protect though on my Healer just in case.

    3rd S/L I managed to take them out. I left 1 dude alive on the 2nd set and made sure all buffs were back up before going into the last round. They still hit for upwards of 2k when they decide to AOE but I managed to get lucky and not get spammed with it.

    Here's hoping the Ultimate is as "easy" as I've been reading especially considering some of the last few. lol
