    Hmmm. I may have to rework my party for that element.

My maria was also lvl 90 with +12% black damage from her record sphere. For comparison, I have bartz at S.lvl 32 with +40 attack from all of the SBs/materia that I have for him.

    Edit: I'm also using a earth boost armor with Bartz and nothing with Maria



    Checking in for the Terra's trance mode being great. I can only seem to get sub 30s clears with trance activated. I started bringing Edward with his quickcast SSB which makes her cast insanely fast with trance and her EX mode.
    what's best way to proc Terra's trance?

    having probs with Hydra myself due to lack of earth. I forgot Hope had it, but took him and even his C2 wasn't doing much (like 2.7k x2 with two magic buffs) so I subbed him out for Cid Raines to have 3 buffs, and that seems fine. Rinoa is my main source of damage (Brothers Unique En-earth + BSB Command 1) and after the buffs are up she does like 5.8kx4 and Meltdown does 9999x3. So damage is okay there.

    Papalymo is sub healer with Curaja/Shellga, Yshtola is my healer, and OK is there as entrust.. but I run out of steam and either I just get unlucky that wall falls right as he's casting again or I just get wrecked with back to back to back aoes. Everyone has resists on. Ugh. So annoying not having actual firepower for this. I'll get it down eventually though.

    I just have her USB but I'd imagine her USB/OSB combo would be even better.

    This is my setup:

    Spoiler: show




    Terra - USB +20% fire damage
    Vincent- +20% fire damage. En-fire SSB and BSB that has radiant shield. I start with his BSB then spam meltdown until I can cast his SSB.
    OK - BSB. +40% fire damage Spams smoldering fire and entrusts Terra.
    Edwards - SSB. Two wraths then SSB. Spams wrath and entrusts Terra after that.
    Relm - BSB


    I'm not running protectga just to help trigger trance and maximize radiant shield damage. Last stand from Relms burst helps with surviving the extra damage. I've also played around with using OK to trigger trance with smoldering fire. I've had trouble with terra surviving the whole fight when I try that though.

    Vali, meltdown and smoldering fire are all R3. I'd like to R4 smoldering fire but i'm saving dark orbs for the upcoming ninja skills.

    shellga + moderate fire resist, self-target chain firaga. as long as she doesn't take any other damage that should trigger it without killing her.

    I usually just S/L until I get lucky. Using ninja magic results in more than enough damage to kill Terra so you need a source of last stand if you try that. But that leaves her open to getting KO'ed later in the fight.

    I might have to try that chain firaga idea out though.

    Can finally consistently take down Fenrir.

    In the end, I went back my two fully LD's character Squall and Lightning, and just went ham on him. Lightning with her USB active is the best and most reliable blink stripper. The short charge time from Lightning meant she can immediately strip physical blink even when the ATB bar is halfway through on Squall's CMD2. Even managed to sub 1min.

    Squall, Lightning, Vanille, Ysh, Ramza. Super straight forward. 3 Enkidus in 4 kills. I'm on a roll.

    i actually LD'ed her and played around with a few setups before arriving at that, it should be solid! that's with her OSB sword at 8* fully augmented, a fire boost armor, and rubicant's cloak. notably though, i don't have any fire boosting magicites since i haven't cleared that fight yet. definite possibility enough passive boosts could put her over the lethal threshold, lol.

    OK (smoldering fire, fire veil I think?, 2 fire ups, vessel), tyro (wrath entrust; keepers tome), terra (chain firaga/meltdown, 1 fire up), selphie (bssb with dr mog; usb later in the fight), noctis (lifesiphon/doesn't matter). Terra chain firagas herself after buffs go up and she can't be hit beforehand, procing esper mode; launches meltdowns till she runs out and may want to throw a chain firaga before beginning enfire/osb spam (although I tested out a 92k osb without enfire, so enfire might just be a waste for me). Terra USB into osb would be far superior unless you ran noctis as well in which case it'd still be superior but just by a bit. Don't use entrust until you have to so you give terra as much meter as possible. Yuna bssb2/usb would probably be better except that selphie's usb is instant.

    Noctis saves a little time with terra's trance mode but the benefits are mostly for the other guys.

    Finally beat the last one for me (Hydra) with my limited earth resources.

    Ended up going full mage route with

    Rinoa (En-Earth Unique + BSB C1 // Meltdown R3 and Chain Stonega R2)
    Papalymo in full support mode with Curaja/Shellga and spamming Leylines when he needs to
    Cid Raines with Wrath/Stoneja and BSB for the buff
    OK with Entrust/Wrath Vessel
    Ysh with Curaja/Wrath

    So three stackable mage buffs + enearth. Lets Rinoa hit 9999x3 with 6 Meltdowns, then just chip away with her burst. Was slow, but finally killed it. Ugh.

    Small look at future magicites: Tier 4s will be Marilith (fire), Isgebind (ice), Tiamat (wind), Midgarsormr (earth), Ixion (thunder), Kraken (water). The three Fiends are the FFIX versions and Lich is there as well, just not as a boss.

    Finally did Fenrir, had to go all physical, Ice SBs were just not putting out enough damage here... won 3 times, so pretty consistant, once was less than a min.

    99 Cloud - Hailstorm, Lifesiphon - BSB2, OSB - Truthseeker
    99 Realm - curaga, Protectga - USB - Ace Striker
    99 Squall - Snowspell Strike, Lifesiphon - OSB - Orphaned Cub
    99 Ramza - Banishing Strike, Lifesiphon - Shout - Mako Might
    99 Y'shtola - Ultra Cure, Shellga - BSB - Knight Charge

    Clouds and Squall OSB after Ramza takes off blink/haste and your golden.

    finished my last of the 6 with liquid flame the other night, i had BSB2/OSB bartz + BSB tidus for my damage section. initial clear was a bit north of a minute, after i honed water spellblade up to R3 and LD'ed bartz and that was enough to shave enough time to get in under a minute.

    Any thought on what one i could start with? I've been mostly bullying my way through content with a Knight team but these feel a little out of my grasp... I have Agrias and Cloud fully dived. Only relevant LM are Faris and Bartz

    From what I can see you're pretty much covered on all 6 elements so just pick one and give it a shot. Maybe start with the elements you have OSBs for?
