    Commentary

    While the Tentacles are alive, magic will automagically miss Geneaux. Gui's Head has permanent Faraway status, meaning it can only be hit by ranged attacks and magic. Gui's Arms respawn 6 turns after being killed. Gui always uses Gravija on its first turn and its single target Attack on turns 2 and 3.

    It seems like we're getting lots of "Ultimate Boss Rushes" lately; a new standard? Anyway, this one's a bit of a cluster. Echuilles and Geneaux aren't too hard, but Gui can easily hit you with Gravija into AOE Thundaga and just wipe out your party. I suggest leaving your healer's ATB full as Geneaux is about to die and starting up an AOE heal shortly after Gui shows up. If the timing's right, it'll land right after Gui casts its Gravija. Other than that wrinkle, this is fairly straightforward. All of the bosses have both physical and magical attacks, so you probably want to bring mixed mitigation.

    Commentary

    Sanctuary Keeper uses Haste and Protect on its first two turns in Default state, 凶 Mana Breath on its first turn in Weak state, and Regen, Reflect, and 凶 Photon Wing on its first three turns in Very Weak state.

    Sanctuary Keeper has mixed attacks (and his Mana Breath is suitably powerful) so make sure to bring a full suite of mitigation. You also really want a source of Dispel for the Regen in his Very Weak phase, which ticks for 9,500. Aside from that, Esuna or Ultra Cure might be useful to clear statuses from Photon Wing, although it doesn't affect Sap and Confuse and Sleep can be cured with a bop from a mage. Tail Sweep can also be aggravating with its AOE Slow chance. If you have any, you might want to give a Slow resistance accessory to your most critical characters (healer, best DPS, etc).

    Event Quest Notes: The Dispel is tricky since Auron isn't a good enough Knight to use Banishing Strike, so you need to bring either the actual Dispel spell or Paine to use Banishing Strike. Paine is also a source of Hastega for FFX, so that may not be a big deal. If you don't want to use Paine, you almost have to bring either Braska or Seymour so that you can have both Dispel and either Protectga or Shellga depending on which attacks you're most worried about. That's really the only hiccup here, though.

    Commentary

    Tidus uses 凶 Spiral Cut on his first two turns in Weak state and 凶 Jecht Shot on his first two turns in Very Weak state.

    Tidus deals purely physical damage, so leave your Magic Breakdown and Shellga at home. You may wish to equip water resistance gear on particularly vulnerable characters (mages and healers) to lessen the damage from Jecht Shot. Draw Fire will help reduce the damage your party takes in the first phase but after that most/all attacks ignore it; this is a case where Amarant's auto-Draw Fire RM really helps out.

    went from 'meh mage synergy' in X to 'fully functioning in-realm mage party' in one random 11x, so i did the whole U/+/++ gauntlet CM style. it's pretty unfair honestly

    braska - chainspells, dispel for U+ - summoner's dream
    lulu - meltdown, OK BSB cast - default SB
    yuna - curaja, pro/shell, BSB2
    seymour - MM/DZ, cross cleave
    wakka - FBD/breakdown, BSB

    U+ can get pretty hairy at the end, but yuna/lulu being able to throw out a 40k command 1 to punch thru the very end made it a lot more manageable though. no-wall U++ was painful (pretty sure all attacks are ranged so back-row doesn't confer any advantage here) but with triple magic buffs my damage output was absurd enough where i just kinda powered thru.

    After Geo, this CM felt like a breeze. I pretty much just ran the same team from the torment with some RMs switched around.

    1/1 on CM mastery with 1 medal lost for KOs (had 3 deaths from AoE spam at the end), Raines RW strat again

    Yuna - Ultra Cure / Protectga / Mako Might / BSB2
    Braska - Curaja / Shellga / Doublecast / ---
    Seymour - Memento Mori / --- / Holy DMG +30% / ---
    Wakka - Full Break / Magic Breakdown / Dragoon's Determination / ---
    Paine - Lifesiphon / Gaia Cross / Dr Mog's Teachings / Hastega SSB

    RW - Metamorphose

    U++ was a pushover with my mage team and raines capping damage on command 1, ended up with full medals.

    I stacked four atk downs on tidus to see what would happen. I was not disappointed but stacking dark damage is undoubtedly faster.

    Fuck, failed on U because I took a mage team and forgot to lower the defense of the second mob.

    Tidus was a joke of a ++ fight. Took Leon since I have his burst, used Deployment Tactics as my RW, and lost one medal for damage only. Forgot to even equip water resist for Jecht Shot.

    Leon just absolutely rapes Tidus with his burst, so if you are doing a physical party, I threw him up as my RW with X Synergy. Vakh is my ID

    Went with a yolo build, full medals, no medica

    RW: Cid Raines

    Alph (RW Cid Raines)
    Pecil (Gaia cross from back row and defend)
    Cid Rains (Wrath x2, Memento Mori, BSB)
    Ramza (Power breakdown, full break)
    Tyro (Curaja/Memento of Prayer, SG)



    With CR x2 popping off, he died pretty quickly. I hope Alph/CR get their mc3 soon, could definitely benefit from the extra HP/Defense

    1/1 on U+ CM. Oddly enough it took me 3 or 4 tries with A team to get mastery.

    Tidus - Powerchain+Lifesiphon, Truthseeker RM, OSB
    Wakka - Armor BD+Hydroburst, Mako Might, BSB
    Yuna - Protectga+Ultra Cure, Dr. Mog, Shared Medica
    Paine - Banishing Strike+Full Charge, Trick Attack, No SB
    Braska - Shellga+Curaja, Doublecast White, Shared Medica

    Shout RW - only used 1 charge.

    Bum rush him as quick as possible after initial set-up. No hit + run. Loud Side activated after first 2 turns. Powerchained Lifesiphon on Tidus until 2 SB bars. Wakka was able to keep his BSB + all 3 breakdowns active in a cycle and never used Hydroburst. Paine used Fullcharge until scripted buffs needed to be dispelled. Got it down to ~ 40% and then b2b'ed Energy Rain for the kill.

    Took a late unexpected Mana Beam right before Tidus used the 2nd Energy Rain, otherwise would have mastered as it killed everyone else.

    What levels are your guys? I had a similar party except rikku instead of braska for her bsb to help tidus' ssb, but even with shell up and full break/wakka bsb mana beam was hitting like 3k a shot... and yshtola bsb rw couldn't handle everything.

    Tidus 99, everyone else was 80.

    I do have Quina's hairpin for Tidus, so thats kind of a wash between using Rikku for the Imperil vs the extra healer.

    I'd say the 2nd healer helps more for getting to that 2 OSB kill threshold than Rikku's damage does. I think I was taking Mana Beams for ~2k with Wakka BSB, Magic BD, and Shell up. Also Shout may be better mitigation than a healer BSB for the RW option.

    Paine was getting 14-16k per Full Charge, Tidus ~60k on Energy Rain, Wakka ~3k on BSB commands.

    Wakka would cycle Armor BD -> BSB -> Magic BD -> Power BD -> Magic BD then repeat and the BSB would generally be up again.
