      • Absorbs: None
      • Vulnerabilities: Poison Abilities, Slow Abilities, Sap Abilities

    Commentary
    Four Saints: Quetzalcoatl works well here for the Paralyze value. Otherwise beat them down the ol’ fashioned way, either one by one or by using AoE. Sephiroth’s Shadow Flare and Cloud’s Blade Beam deserves special mention here.
    Godo:
    • Godo changes colour at the end of every turn.
    As long as you keep him controlled with Slow, Blind and defensive Breakdowns, you should be fine.

    Recommended abilities: Slowga, AoE, defensive Breakdowns
    Recommended RW: SG/SS2


    TOTAL medals = 30 medals

    Recommended abilities: Shellga, Protectga, Breakdowns, AoE
    Recommended RW: SG/SS2, Scream


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

    Commentary
    • Uses Demon Rush at 75%, 50%, and 25% thresholds.

    ► Body (After Arms destroyed)

    Lapis Laser: Deal moderate special non-elemental magic damage to all targets.
    Lapis Laser: Deal very heavy special non-elemental magic damage to one target.

    ► Arms

    Attack: Deal physical damage to one target.
    Arm Grab: Render a target incapacitated.

    Commentary
    • If the Body is attacked while the Arms are alive, the Arms will use Arm Grab.
    • Arm Grab is similar to Pyramid, that is a character becomes unable to act.
    • To free a character from Arm Grab, you need to deal enough damage to the arm that used Arm Grab.
    Kill the arms ASAP. Be careful when using AoE, any damage on the Body will trigger the Arm Grab counter.

    Recommended abilities: Multi-Break
    Recommended RW: SG/SS2, Lunatic High, any Attack boosting SB, etc

    Commentary
    This is a true test of hones. The first wave of bosses aren’t too bad but still don’t let your guard down.

    The Kimaira (2nd wave) hurts a lot with its Freeze magic. Make sure you reduce its mag and tank up with Shellga.

    Proudclad’s main damage comes from Beam Cannon. As long as you mitigate it you will be fine. Make sure to destroy Jamar Armor so you can exploit lightning weakness on Proudclad for a quick kill.

    Recommended abilities: defensive Breakdowns, Full Break / Multi-Break, Protectga, Shellga
    Recommended RW: SG/SS2


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

    Same time. Obviously when we start getting U/U+ Cid missions those will be released alongside those battles three days after the event goes live.

    Why is this one different? Is there any specific reason to not follow the normal format on this event?

    So this has been bothering me for a while but is the robot's name Proud Clod, Proudclod or Proudclad? And why is it proud? (If it was explained in VII, I don't remember it as it's been a while)

    in the US PSX release, it was proud clod. don't know if they changed it in any of the subsequent rereleases.

    Proudclod literally just destroyed me with a 9999 Beam Cannon to everyone.

    Overall, yeah, it's a fight against hones. Ying/Yang went down in 6 rounds between Bladeblitz, Tornado Strike, and Meteor, but Chimera lasted a bit longer than I would've liked. This is further worsened by the fact PC didn't go lightning weak when I took down the Jamar armor, so my projected offense tanked. Gonna have to decide if I wanna give up MG8 as RW and put Shellga on my healer since the 2 RWs couldn't span all 3 fights. Will miss the regen, though.

    Went down more easily with Shout and swapping in Shellga, but still took some hard hits with a less reliable accessory protect.
