She stands before your very eyes to become your new ruler. HAHAHAHAHA." - Edea

    Bonus Battles
    Sorceress's Assassins +
    • Archaeosaur (2x)
      HP: ~58600 each
      Target Score: Defeat Archaeosaur without being KO'd, Exploit Archaeosaur's weakness to ice attacks.
      • Weak: Ice
      • Absorbs: None
      • Resists: Poison
      • Vulnerabilities: Confuse Abilities and Sap Abilities and Stop Abilities
    • Iguions (2x)
      HP: ~55000 each
      Target Score: Defeat Iguion without being KO'd, Exploit Iguion's weakness to holy attacks.
      • Weak: Holy and Earth
      • Null: Fire and Poison
      • Vulnerabilities: None

    Commentary
    Archaeosaur: Tank up the party with Protectga or other similar buffs. Use ice attacks for a quick victory. Tauntaliate will do fine, but you don’t get full value out of it since Tail Lash hits the whole party. It does, however, help you play around its Gnash counter.
    Iguions: Pray that you don’t get petrified by the breaths. Otherwise, tank up with Protectga and remember to exploit holy for medals. Having Quake is also good here.

    Recommended abilities: Protectga/Shellga, defensive Breakdowns, Quake, Shiva
    Recommended RW: SG/SS2


    TOTAL medals = 30 medals
    , meaning you can only lose a max of 5 medals to get Mastery.

    Death's Curse ++
    Abadon
    HP: ~191100
    Target Score:
    • Defeat Abadon without being KO'd.
    • Exploit Abadon's weakness to fire attacks.
    • Reduce Abadon's ATK.
    Weak: Fire and Holy
    Absorb: None
    Vulnerabilities: None

    Commentary
    Same as the other Abadon, except it can now Attack your entire party for heavy damage. Make sure to buff the party with Protectga or other similar buffs, and also reduce Abadon’s attack. Exploit its weaknesses for a quick fight. If you have your own mitigation, you can use Squall’s BSSB as RW and take advantage of the multihit fire attack!

    Recommended abilities: Power Breakdown, Steal Power, Protectga
    Recommended RW: SG/SS2, Scream


    Total medals = 18, meaning you can only afford to lose 3 medals to get Mastery.

    Drifting Nightmare +++
    Elnoyle
    HP: ~200000
    Target Score:
    • Defeat Elnoyle without being KO'd.
    • Exploit Elnoyle's Weakness to wind attacks.
    • Reduce Elnoyle's MAG.
    Weak: None
    Absorbs: None
    Resist: None
    Null: Earth
    Vulnerabilities: None

    Commentary

    Very magic oriented boss. As such, Shellga and other similar buffs is essential. Magic Breakdown goes without saying. Stack it for greater effect. Don’t forget to exploit wind for medals. If you have your own mitigation, you can use Squall’s BSSB as RW and take advantage of the multihit wind attack!

    Recommended abilities: Shellga, Magic Breakdown, Full Break / Break Fever
    Recommended RW: SG/SS2, Mighty Guard (VIII), etc


    Total medals = 18, meaning you can only afford to lose 3 medals to get Mastery.

    Cutting off Ties (U)
    Seifer, Fujin, & Raijin
    HP: ~125000 (Seifer), ~104000 (Fujin), ~100000 (Raijin)
    Target Score:
    • Exploit Seifer's weakness to ice attacks.
    • Exploit Fujin's weakness to lightning attacks.
    • Exploit Raijin's weakness to wind attacks.

    Attack: Deal physical damage two times to random targets.
    Firaga: Deal heavy fire damage to all targets.
    Zantetsuken Reverse: Deal massive special physical damage to all targets.

    Remedy: Remove debuffs from one target. (used when Weak)
    Hi-Potion: Restore a moderate amount of HP to the target. (used when Weak)

    Commentary
    • Take down Fujin first to eliminate any possibilities of Sai happening.
    • You can Blind Raijin if you want, but do take note that Raijin Special is not affected by Blind.
    • Shellga and Protectga are important here.
    • It is also wise to bring some Poison attacks (Biora Strike, Bioga, etc) since all three are weak to Poison as well.

    Recommended abilities: Protectga, Shellga, defensive/offensive Breakdowns, AoE
    Recommended RW: SG/SS2, Mighty Guard (VIII)

    Here comes my setup:

    https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2016...294306ffe4.jpg

    Actually benching Ramza this time to spread out synergy. I'll be RWing him so I can smack the shit out of everything with Irvine and Agrias.

    Elnoyle can drop Major Earth Orbs.

    I was actually wondering why Balthier was dealing so low damage during the bonus battles. Didn't occur to me I removed his gun since the SSB was mastered and still had him back row. Oops.

    At Rata's request I'm making my RW Lightning with Crushing Blow in full FF8 attack mode. Feel free to use to lay waste to Fujin in the Ult.

    Planned setup, as always opinions are welcomed

    Ultimate

    Spoiler: show


    My plan for Ultimate is this

    Shout, and SG ASAP After Shout Agrias will Summon Crushing Blow X2 which should almost kill Fujin, will need some bios from Edea to help
    After Shout, Ramza job will be to Blind Raiijin and then start hitting Seifer
    After SG Tyro job will be to Multi Break then Bio Fujin/Seifer
    Edea job will be to rekt seifer and try to save as many Bio as possible for RAijiin (using her SSB if i can on seifer)

    Ultimate +

    doesn't the regular break overwrite the entirety of full break?

    No Break and breakdown overwrite each other (aka power break and power breakdown) but Full break stacks with the Break/Breakdown

    You mean that new fist that got released this banner? Doesn't it just do Protect/Shell/Haste?

    Unless you have his other one, which when combined gives you haste, attack, protect, and shell.

    His other one though is an aoe 30% atk that overwrites shout atk. The only amazing SB that Zell has is his newest SSB in JP, his SSB we're getting, Jecht does better with an aoe version of crit+25% buff.

    And with my party setup I couldn't bring Ramza and didn't even need to use a Shout RW.
