    FFRK - Dressed To The Nines (Dress Record) Event & Strategies

    Lets call a spade a spade, this is Waifu Wars 2 Kay 8 Teen.

    Though, the 2 obvious winners here have "conveniently" been handicapped out.

    Agrias is not pleased...



    Call me King? More like "Call me un-amused."

    Spoiler: show


    And yes, she knows.

    Relics
    Just one banner here. All of it is older stuff, but there are a few prizes among them.

    This is a full priced banner too.

    Banner 1:

    Just going to go over the standouts here. It's a mix of USB, OSB, BSB, SSB, and LM.

    Rydia: Her stackable Mag/Res USB is here, as is her earth/water/holy OSB.

    Lenna: Party buff suite + HP stock USB and her bar-ice entry BSB.

    Faris: Her USB2 and BSB are here.

    Krile: Fire CSB and Sheepmode.

    Terra: One Stop Fire Shop. En-fire USB, BSB2, and her doublecast LMR.

    Celes: Same as Terra is getting a lot of reruns that were just on Locke's banner. BSB2 and LMR are the standouts.

    Tifa: Party Radiant Shield/Haste USB as well as her BSB 2.

    Garnet: Her Holy/Lightning USB and improved BSB2.

    Yuna: Tiny Bee

    Song for Spira is here too, but why would you want that?

    Rikku: One Stop Buff Shop. USB.

    Lightning: USB is the gem, but her BSB2 and LMR are pretty potent themselves with a full dive.

    Banner 2:

    Stay tuned for the next event!

    Theres a lot of fights and CM's, only going to cover the Ultimates and up.

    Assume that the medal conditions for lower tiers are either "Dont Die" or "Use Fullbreak".

    The Zero Throttle fights are for Terra+Cloud, Zidane+Bartz, and Squall. Additional notes will be provided after those respective sections.

    Ultimate + Apocalypse Battles
    凶 Another World's Clown
    凶Kefka
    HP: 260,000
    Target Score:
    • Reduce Kefka's magic.
    Weak: None
    Absorbs: None
    Resists: None
    Null: None
    Vulnerabilities: Paralyze, Slow, Stun

    Notes: Paralyze.

    Kefka will always follow Blizzaga with Confuse, and Poison with Drain.

    凶+ Guardian and Contractors
    凶Caius Ballad
    HP: 300,000
    Target Score:
    • Reduce Caius' attack.
    Weak: None
    Absorbs: None
    Resist: None
    Null: None
    Vulnerabilities: Stun

    Notes:Same fight as before. Prepare breakdowns for Body and Soul counter.

    凶++ You Are Not Alone
    凶Shell Dragon
    HP: 320,000
    Target Score:
    • Reduce the Shell Dragon's magic.
    Weak: Ice
    Absorbs: None
    Resist: None
    Null: None
    Vulnerabilities: Stun

    Notes: Shell Dragon will always follow Crush and Earthshaker with a ST 188% physical hit.

    Crush is auto-hit, so KO resist won't help. Wear earth resist for Earthshaker.

    凶 Terra & Cloud
    凶Terra + 凶Cloud
    HP: Terra: 142,253 - Cloud: 152,731
    Target Score:
    • Reduce an enemy's attack.
    • Reduce an enemy's magic.
    • Exploit an enemy's weakness to darkness element attacks.
    Weak: Dark
    Absorbs: None
    Resist: None
    Null: None
    Vulnerabilities: None

    Notes: Cloud's weaker phases are the more dangerous ones, so he should be the initial target for your heavy hits.

    Terra does his 4 elements and no water, so Gigas Armlets will cover a little over half her offensive output. Holy and NE are the others.

    Zero Throttle:

    凶++ Terra & Cloud
    凶Terra + 凶Cloud
    HP: Terra: 160,000 - Cloud: 140,000
    Target Score:
    • Reduce an enemy's attack.
    Weak: Terra: Ice
    Absorbs: None
    Resist: None
    Null: None
    Vulnerabilities: None

    Terra's weakness has shifted to Ice and Cloud's is gone.
    Breaks are also only 80% as effective.

    Killing Cloud fast is paramount because his turn/phases are on a turn count and not damage based. Getting him down means Terra can be trivialized with a Runic/Reflect and Draw Magic.

    凶++ Zidane & Bartz
    凶Zidane + 凶Bartz
    HP: Zidane: 186,389 - Bartz: 175,205
    Target Score:
    • Reduce an enemy's attack.
    • Reduce an enemy's defense.
    • Reduce an enemy's resistance.
    Weak: Dark
    Absorbs: None
    Resist: None
    Null: None
    Vulnerabilities: None

    Notes: This tandem shares phases, so if Zidane is at 49% and Bartz at 100%, they're both in Weak mode.

    This is a purely physical fight, and as in the Dissidia event (which this is copied from), Zidane is the dangerous one because this is not Kick O'clock Bartz.

    Zidane is just bulky enough that you may want to consider Affliction Break or Astra. Slow and Confuse is not a fun combo to deal with.

    Zero Throttle:

    凶++ Zidane & Bartz
    凶Zidane + 凶Bartz
    HP: Zidane: 150,000 - Bartz: 180,000
    Target Score:
    • Reduce an enemy's attack.
    Weak: Zidane: Earth - Bartz: Thunder
    Absorbs: None
    Resist: None
    Null: None
    Vulnerabilities: Zidane: Slow - Bartz: Stun

    Breaks are only 80% as effective.

    These two still share phases like the regular fight. Zidane should be your damage target, but don't neglect Bartz's attack this time. Hit him with a breakdown ASAP and then wail on Zidane. If its taking you longer than 15-20 seconds to burn Zidane, you may want to reapply a break on Bartz.

    Squall (Apoc +)
    滅Squall
    HP: 680,000
    Target Score:
    • Win before Squall uses Blasting Zone 7 times.
    • Win before Squall uses Ultima 4 times.
    • Win with at least 3 characters alive.
    Weak: All (150%)
    Absorbs: None
    Resist: None
    Null: None
    Vulnerabilities: None

    Notes: Immune to breaks and all attacks pierce. Load up on your best damage dealers and go nuts.

    Blasting Zone does ~6500...so don't bring anyone who doesn't have that HP level without Last Stand active.

    Zero Throttle:

    滅Squall
    HP: 330,000
    Target Score:
    • Reduce Squall's magic.
    Weak: All (150%)
    Absorbs: None
    Resist: None
    Null: None
    Vulnerabilities: None

    Squall is magically half as bulky, still omni-element weak, and breaks are now 80% effective.

    He is still piercing, and they are a bit more potent than before, but with being able to break him properly now that becomes a non-issue.

    Song of spira = 1 time heal
    Tiny bee = many heals
    It's just math

    I didn;t see the cid missions when I was checking the lists ingame. Should I hold off on doing the event for now or are the missions for some sort of hard mode that's coming and thusly not applicable to the easy stuff we're fighting right now?

    The CMs are apparently not coming, per emails from Dena support posted on reddit.

    UGH. that outright removes any reason to do half of the fights because you don't get mythril and you're better off farming orbs.
