    That ult++ was, compared to the mandies, quite sedate. Tonight MP.

    Ashe basically killed all the mandies on her own, with Raines bsb cmd 2 as RW.

    Rest of party was:

    Penelo: multi break/exhausting polka
    Larsa: ultra cure/protectga
    Basch: gaia's cross/banishing strike (apocalypse shield)
    Fran: hydroburst/affliction break

    So as you can see, mitigation galore.

    OK MP done, for some reason I kept ending up in 3+ whm parties which couldn't kill the wall in 30 turns, teams that had no slowga or dispel, etc. Had an ultimate+run where we experted due to no slow (if I were the room maker I'd have been pissed). Ended up making affliction break 2 and sticking it on minfilia with slowga and bssb, and taking ramza as a lifesiphon+full break shouter. With no support from my team full of osbs, after enholy min was hitting OSB level entry damage with shout.

    I've never played ffxiv and I'm not sure what to think of minfilia after her FFRK appearance - I've gotten a ton of use out of her with guts+buff and bssb but her dive, skillset and soul breaks are all over the place.

    I don't know why people had so much issues with the mandies. Went in scared as hell, went 1/2 after realizing I should kill the one mandy that can't be status'ed into oblivion first. Raines RW.



    Having issues with Hydro though. Wondering if 2 healers isn't better. I can get him down to ~25% rushing him with as much stacked mitigation as I can muster but still seem to crumble at the end.

    Throwing Wall, Pro, Shell, Cleansing, Vaan RW Burst, PBD and MBD at it and still having issues.

    Hydro's ultimate sonic fangs (?) ignores defense. With only pbd it's gonna hurt.

    The scripted ultimate sonic fangs at 30% might be your problem - that into bile is a big HP drop. Vaan RW burst wont do much here because the only magic attacks are dorkra and fireball so I think phys mit is the way to go. An offhealer might not be a bad idea but I wouldn't want to lose much damage for it.

    Yeah. That was it. Took Kashuan's Resolve along for a RW and just timed it for 60 and 30%. Didn't even need a Shout refresh on Ramza.

    Also forgot that I had Fangs Highwind. And a XII spear boosting fire damage. 60k damage and mitigation. Hydro melted like butter.

    Vanille and Fang made the U++ way too easy, U+ CM cleared on the first try once I stopped trying to brute force it and use some status ailments.

    I remember asking if Balthier was worth using.

    Yep. Get Confuse Shell, Blind Shell, and go to town.

    Don't forget Fran. She can use staves so her MND will be quite high. Give her Sleep and Stop and she'll take out two mandragoras (Sleep lasted the whole fight so you can focus on stop locking the King).

    You do have to be aware of what the confused Mandy is hitting though. It's nice to hold off just a slight bit if you know Fran's turn is coming up until after the top Mandy acts.

    After you've blinded and confused with Balthier, having him attack the 2nd Mandy down (if using Raines BSB) should kill him and the light/dark weak mandies within 1 turn of eachother depending on rng damage. That leaves you with very manageable blind (no threat) and confused statuses to apply. If you can get to that point the battle should be won.
