    FFRK - Abyss Dungeon 04 - Summoning Magic Event & Strategies

    Vulnerabilities: Blind Abilities

    Commentary

    Sacred is the big red guy; Minotaur is the small blue guy.

    Mad Cow Special is only used when both of them are alive. You can focus one down ASAP or use AoEs.

    Recommended abilities: Magic Breakdown, Shellga
    Recommended RW: SG/SS2, Scream (Ramza)


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

    Commentary
    • After a set number of turns, if all three sisters are alive, they will perform the Delta Attack.
    • Cindy will use Raise when either Sandy or Cindy are defeated.
    It is wise to take down Cindy first for obvious reasons. Carbuncle is great against Mindy’s magic attacks, and Draw Fire + Retaliate is great in general since they all have physical attacks. If you have well honed AoE magic/summons this fight will be quick.

    Recommended abilities: Multi-Break, Draw Fire + Retaliate, Breakdowns, Carbuncle, AoE
    Recommended RW: SG/SS2, Scream (Ramza), Mighty Guard (VIII)


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

    Weak: Wind
    Null: Earth
    Resists: None
    Vulnerabilities: None

    Commentary

    Use defensive Breakdowns or defensive buffs coupled with a defensive Soul Break like SG/SS2. Exploit the Ark’s elemental weaknesses for a quick fight

    Recommended abilities: defensive Breakdowns, Protectga
    Recommended RW: SG/SS2, Scream (Ramza)

    Commentary

    PHASE 1 (100%-80%):

    No special mechanics in this phase. Just beat the boss down until Phase 2 starts. One thing worth noting is that you can use Ninja or White Magic abilities to deal damage in Phase 1. This lets you save some summon uses for Phase 2 and 3 which are the critical phases.

    PHASE 2 (79%-50%):
    • Neo Bahamut gains Reflect at the start of this phase.
    • You’ll notice the background will change. This changes throughout Phase 2 and it will indicate the element Neo Bahamut is currently weak to and also what element it currently resists (this is important).
    • Red fiery background (Fire stage): Weak to Ice; Resists Fire
    • Blue icy background (Ice stage): Weak to Fire; Resists Ice
    • Stormy grassfield background (Lightning stage): Weak to Water; Resists Lightning
    • After every two turns, the background will change. Background cycle is as follows: F → I → L → F → I → L (in other words after 12 turns have elapsed, if Neo Bahamut’s HP isn’t brought down to 50% yet, Phase 2 ends prematurely and Phase 3 will begin)
    • IMPORTANT: If you use an element that Bahamut resists, an Energy Sphere will spawn, they are immune to damage. Energy spheres come in 3 main colours: Red, Blue, Yellow (using a fire summon when Bahamut is currently resisting fire elements will spawn a Red Energy Sphere, and so on). Note that ONLY SUMMONS will trigger Energy Sphere spawns. (using Ninja abilities won’t work)
    • Energy Spheres have three “Levels” of power, and they are indicated by its size. Power levels are determined by damage you deal from summons: 1-3999 = Level 1; 4000-9999 = Level 2; 10000 and above = Level 3.
    • (So let’s say in the Fire stage, Ifrit deals 2.5k per hit, the Energy Sphere spawned will be Level 2.)
    • You can spawn multiple Energy Spheres (maximum of 3 Spheres). You can only spawn 1 Sphere for each element. (You cannot spawn 2 Red Spheres, for instance)
    • You need to have at least one Energy Sphere spawned before going into Phase 3.

    PHASE 3 (49%-0%):
    • Energy Spheres become targetable now. They have an invisible timer. If the timer runs out and the Spheres are still alive, it is a wipe.
    • If you destroy Spheres within the timer, the Spheres will damage Bahamut. A Level 1 Sphere will deal 1×9999 damage to Bahamut; Level 2 = 2×9999; and Level 3 = 3×9999
    • Therefore, the more Spheres you spawn in P2, and the more times you charge it, then you’ll have a very quick P3 (assuming you are able to nuke all Spheres down in time)
    • Other than that, it’s a race to the finish line. Neo Bahamut will be spamming Gigaflare a lot.
    • Energy spheres must be destroyed with a Summon attack. Failure in doing so will trigger Gigaflare NIghtmare.
    • If there are multiple Energy Spheres, all of them has to be defeated simultaneously. If one Sphere is defeated before the other(s), all other Spheres will be consumed, and any Spheres that are alive will trigger Gigaflare Nightmare.

    Recommended abilities: Shiva/Ifrit/Ramuh/Valefor/Maduin/Leviathan, Water Veil, Fire Veil, Swift Bolt
    Recommended RW: SG/SS2

    I don't think I can justify a lucky pull on this as much as I'd love a native wall.

    Ive got Ifrit/Ramuh/Shiva at R5, Valduin at R4. Between those, Ninja Scrolls at R4 and Tyro I'm feeling pretty safe.

    I'm not sure you'll need to worry much; some of your summoners will need heals/mitigation spells. You probably should have enough to cover it all.

    I'm working with R4 3*s, R4 Val/Maduin/Alex, R3 Leviathan, R2 Bahamut, R2 Quetz, R2 Orthros

    plus all scrolls at R4.

    I think Terra items are nice enough that its worth the pull.

    And theres enough blm stat sticks or good armors (keepsake ribbon) in there that it isnt Serah banner 1 bad.

    Hones are what's doing me in, and it's not like I can just make summon orbs come out of nowhere, either.

    Cheesed it by charging SB. Unfortunately I couldn't use Terra's trance flood since it still counted as black magic =/ but the extra 3 Wishing Star and Ramuh barely got me past it. I was out of summons right at the very end.

    Made Maduin R4 to make sure everyone had a summon, went in and had a fucking terrible time getting him even to the halfway point......... when I realized that Optimize likes to gear Tyro for melee and some of my whm/smns as whm, left the fight, regeared them for max MAG, and barely scrapped by (went in with no heals including SBs) with a master.

    Same. Getting him sub 10% every time with R4 Ifrit/Shiva/Ramuh, R3 Maduin, R2 Bahamut, R1 Orthros, R5 Swift Bolt, Wishing Star, and Magitek Missile. Cheesing SSBs might work but otherwise I need to find some 4* orbs and hone ultros.

    edit: got him down but only got expert because at the end i accidentally used an auto attack with tyro. fml. will do it again another time since those crystals aren't necessary right now anyway. all i had to do was push ultros to r2, was enough.

    You could buy them from the Fat Chocobo store. Do you have any greens left?
