    Commentary

    The Emperor uses Barrier and then Haste on his first two turns (even if you trigger a Counter Haste before his second turn). When he is reduced to 55% or less HP, the Emperor uses Elixir 1 as an interrupt and enters Weak phase. On his first turn in Weak phase and again on his first turn in Very Weak phase, the Emperor will cast Barrier.

    Commentary

    The Emperor of Heaven uses its single target Attack on its first 2-3 turns. He uses Dispel 16, Slow 16, and Holy 16 on his first three turns in Weak phase, then Dispel 16, Slow 16, and Meteor 16 on his first three turns in Very Weak phase. In all phases, the Emperor of Heaven cannot re-cast Holy 16 or Meteor 16 more often than once every 3 turns.

    ult+: I shouted this instead of cid raines and should have just cid rainesd but it wasn't too hard with various gordon soul breaks and will of the white mage. Brought thunder resist.
    Ult++: Actually had some trouble with this till I brought slow resist and entrusted a bar to kururu for a second sheep song; cid raines RW was obliterating him too fast and triggering the low hp dispel-> slow.
    MP Apoc: I had to do this solo because parties were literally too dumb to live. I had a party with a pecil who overwrote sent grim with rampart and another party with only tyro ultra cure as a solo heal. Gank the second and third waves with AOE to avoid getting tromped. Or just kill them one by one, they don't have much HP but had decent durability and a lot of offense.
