    Bonus Battles
    Strongest Summons +
    • Leviathan
      HP: ~119,123
      Target Score: Defeat Leviathan without being KO'd, Exploit Leviathan's weakness to thunder attacks.
      • Weak: Thunder Abilities
      • Absorbs: Water Abilities
      • Null: Fire Abilities and Earth Abilities
      • Vulnerabilities: Slow Abilities, Blind Abilities, and Stun Abilities
    • Bahamut
      HP: ~132,359
      Target Score: Defeat Bahamut without being KO'd, Reduce Bahamut's MAG.
      • Weak: None
      • Null: Earth Abilities
      • Absorbs: None
      • Vulnerabilities: Slow Abilities, Blind Abilities, and Stun Abilities

    Commentary

    Silence doesn't do much to Leviathan, so I wouldn't bother with it unless you're using a Machinist. Both enemies rely mostly on magical attacks and can be Blinded to mostly negate their token physical attacks, so try to take advantage of that.

    Mimic in the Water ++
    Famed Mimic Gogo
    HP: ~203,922
    Target Score:
    • Defeat Gogo without being KO'd.
    • Reduce Gogo's ATK.
    • Reduce Gogo's MAG.
    Weak: None
    Null: Water Abilities
    Vulnerabilities: Silence Abilities, Slow Abilities, and Stun Abilities

    Commentary

    If not attacked, Gogo will pass his first several turns. If you attack him three times before he starts actually taking turns (he gives a speech when you're clear), he'll switch to Angry Mode and start pummeling you with magic. You can safely do anything which doesn't directly affect Gogo himself, such as setting up buffs on the party. Once he starts talking to you, he'll start acting normally and you're free to do the same.

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

    Eidolon of Bal Castle +++
    Odin
    HP: ~197,678
    Target Score:
    • Defeat Odin without being KO'd.
    • Win before Odin's 10th turn.
    • Reduce Odin's DEF.
    Weak: None
    Absorbs: Holy Abilities
    Resist: None
    Null: None
    Vulnerabilities: Silence Abilities, Slow Abilities and Stun Abilities

    Commentary
    • Odin only uses the second form of Zantetsuken when his countdown reaches 0.
    Pure physical fight here, so pack all the physical mitigation you can muster. If you're not confident of your DPS, bring Slowga to buy yourself a lot more time.

    Commentary
    • Shield Dragon has permanent Reflect status.
    • Exdeath's Soul acts twice per turn in its Weak phase.
    This pair has a pretty even split of physical and magical attacks between them, so you should probably aim for mixed mitigation. Shield Dragon leans more towards physical attacks (with only physicals until <50% HP and then a roughly 1-in-3 chance to use a magical attack), while Exdeath is roughly 50-50 on physical or magical attacks in his default phase and 3 magical attacks for every physical attack in his weak phase.

    As for kill order, Exdeath's attacks unquestionably deal more damage, especially since Shield Dragon's Hard Hit is vulnerable to Draw Fire + Retaliate, so you may want to focus on Exdeath first. Do note that while Exdeath has a little lower HP than Shield Dragon, his defenses are much higher, so it's faster to kill the dragon first. Shield Dragon also doesn't doublecast in his weak phase. Up to you which route you choose to take.

    Commentary
    • Bartz uses Trublade of Legends and Four Radiances as interrupts when switching to Weak and Very Weak phases, respectively.
    The buffs from Trublade of Legends and especially Four Radiances are extremely strong; this is a fight where its very important to have a Full Break effect on call just to remove Four Radiance's buff. Beyond that, Bartz's damage is 100% physical/gravity so don't bother with any magical defense. In addition, only Ranger: Barrage is long-ranged, so sticking people in the back row helps a lot. Thankfully this version of Bartz is much kinder with his initial attacks than our previous U+ incarnation, starting off with two Multi-Missiles then following up with two basic Attacks, giving you tons of time to get set up.

    Event Quest Notes: Not much to say here which wasn't said above, except that if you're relying on Faris BSB to privide your Full Break status for this fight, make sure to have it ready as soon as he hits 40%. You really don't want to be eating Spellblade Flurries from a final phase Ultimate+ boss with a +50% Attack buff for longer than strictly needed.

    10% chance to activate in response to physical attacks: Dispel (WHT: remove all positive statuses from all targets)

    Commentary
    • Exdeath uses Sword Dance as an interrupt when he enters Fire phase and Maelstrom as an interrupt when he enters Earth Phase.
    • Exdeath acts twice per turn in Fire phase and Earth phase.
    Counter Dispel makes this a very risky fight to bring any physical DPS to. In fact, you might even want to go for a Dancer instead of a Support, although if you've got Wall (either natively or via RW) you can also do just fine by not buffing until your Support opens up with a Full Break on the very first phase so that a possible Dispel there doesn't mess things up, then having your Support do other non-physical-attack things, like casting Faith or Water of Strength. Another consideration is that Exdeath uses a lot of gravity attacks, so bringing moderate or major Instant KO resistance accessories may help keep the healing load down. As for his mitigatable abilities, they're mostly magical although every phase but Wind has at least one physical move to watch out for, so plan your defenses accordingly.

    Hummm, guess it's time to uncap my Bartz, lv 99 with BSB, should be decent.

    Sadly Bartz BSB is pretty deceiving if mob has no elemental weakness, cuz you won't be using his command much, if you have his SSB, it's almost better spamming then his BSB

    I have both. Though I found his BSB does more initial damage. But yeah, I haven't used Bartz recently since without elemental weakness, his BSB commands are a bit underwhelming.
