    Commentary

    Boss doesn’t hit hard with mitigation and debuffs up, but if you’re bringing a full physical team, expect to get countered with a lot of Freezing Dust. Not sure if Runic effects work to block the Stops, but worth a try!

    1/1 on both of the bosses released so far. Full synergy across the board isn't even fair lol.

    How the hell do you beat the Ultimate versions? I am getting absolutely annihilated. I don't really have elemental resistance gear, shell only does so much. 160 difficulty is kinda where my personal limit is at the moment. I've beaten a few, but sometimes I struggle. I honestly don't read enough about the game (cause it's a mobile) Posted this in the other thread, but here's what I'm capable of at the moment.

    That being said, if you guys have any personal suggestions I will do that, as You all seem to know what you're doing. Reddit ffrk sub is too much to sift through. Like if I'm missing key abilities, to get which ones, and upgrade it to how many uses.

    In terms of buffs, bring sentinel's grimoire, you have it on tyro but unlearned, and use breakdown(s). Throw on res buffs like divine guardian if needed. Bring an AOE cure (you have arc's word of kindness). Need more hones and RMs - get cloud and tyro RM2s (mako might/dr mog) and don't put more resources into 4 star spellblades.

    I think I'll bring Krile for Stunga and Rinoa for Earth damage. Shouldn't be hard.

    Thanks, yeah I had a bunch of folks giving me info on the BG discord before. Reddit is too much for me with all their bullshit talk. Too much to sift through. Already got a bunch of that done. BG folks very helpful. Didn't realize I had as much good shit as I did.

    FWIW, I had a hard time with the Ultimate+ ice rooster until I started bringing two healers. It was pretty easy after that. The damage output from Ultimate Blizzaja is still pretty high, even with Wall/Shell/Full Break/Magic Breakdown, and Freezing Dust really slows the fight down on you.

    Oh man today's was the easiest yet. I forgot to hit the boss with attack down because he went down so quickly but he didn't even do enough damage to take 1 medal so still championed it. The earth one was the only boss I had to change up my strat from my original 'wing it' party because I just wasn't doing enough damage quickly enough in order to get him down in 2 charges of stoneskin, but once I brought my own stoneskin then it was easy enough to play it safe and whittle him down.

    Yeah, I pulled Maria's BSSB just before I went in and figured "Ooo, this will help on this next boss." Dude died so fast I didn't even get a chance to use the BSSB. D: Probably should have put Ace Striker on her instead of Magic Up RM, lol.

    Pretty easy fight slapping full mitigation on Rubi then deliberately trigger his counter in cloaked form repeatedly for <300 dmg to charge your SBs super fast

    I tossed up Tactics and watched him kill himself with Counter Fira.

    1/1 was expecting more of a fight off Ultima Weapon. No one even came close to dieing even with the AoE spam. He was pretty weak.

    Not really. AFAIK, there aren't any summoners with en-dark. If you don't have an en-element SB, the elemental 5* summons aren't really worth honing.

    Seymour in the next FFX event will change that with en-dark via SSB (and imperil with BSB). Still, it's really only worth it if you intend to use him and his SSB or BSB.

    Yeah, I went 1/2 - but got really unlucky when he decided to use Ultima four consecutive times and Doom Ultima at like 75% HP on the first fight.

    Second fight it actually mixed in other attacks. I used Minwu's BSB as RW for the second fight as well, which gave me Haste/Regen as well as a second healer when needed. That, and he didn't use Doom Ultima until like 20% the second time.
