So, who else has tried this first dungeon in the official release? This was my first tiem trying it and I had a blast. I did 160 Gilgamesh with a random group of people and we pwnd it. Good job guys, you rocked!
Really looking forward to trying out 200 a little later. :D

Starting from FFXIII event we will get MP fights at each event. in 2 waves
1) When event starts we should get 'easy' fights which seems to be 80 and 120 difficulty
2) when Bonus starts or 1 day after we should get 'hard fights' which are 160 and 200 difficulty
Apoc is tough. It's funny though, I did better/got closer with a group that didn't bring a boostga at all, yet the groups I've gone with that did (Ramza/OK) have all fizzled out because they can't keep up with the aoe damage.
My Bartz is pretty good with a rank 2 Snowspell strike + BSB.
Soloed 160, but 200 is perhaps seeming off the table. He started spamming Zant after Enkidu popped up for me and then Berserked my healer. So, run over. Feeling like the HP is probably balanced more around the presumption of 5-6 DPS and not the 3 I was carrying solo. So shit'll probably only get worse the further fight goes.
I went 1/1 doing 200 pug. Dont remember the group setup exactly but I brought a MAG specced onion with bsb, meltdown r2 (for enkidu), arise r2 (unused), and wakka with bsb, affliction break r2, and armor breakdown with major death resist on both. Had a shout, wall, sentinel sb, and vanille burst in the group as well.
No death procs, 1 paralyze and 1 berserk proc the whole fight, so we got pretty lucky, or affliction break really is that good.
Beat it with some difficulty. Took shouting ramza with banish strike (because no one ever brought a dispel) and tyro with esuna (same). Won with a double tyro double 'za setup. Not sure how to beat singleplayer 200, that is a long fight and needs a lot of different mitigations (or another power to just kill enkidu when he pops).
This is what I'm starting to think too. My last run was going great until Zant spam got my Arc. He had a major death resist accessory on but the chance of death procing gets pretty high when Greg does nothing but spam that shit.
