    Gil v2

    omg I'm going to /wrists, this shit is RIDICULOUS. can almost kill the fucking dog if the game did what it's fucking supposed to. i'm waiting for at least 5 seconds, WHILE the game is pounding the shit out of me, for a reverse or a p. down to go off. my gambit set up is fine, it's working really well, but when I have reverse on, but get hit for 4k damage anyway, something is fucking wrong. the battlefield is horrible. i'm level 51, and disable isn't the problem. i have chars randomly dying to things that aren't the dog (though crushing fangs is a fucking _BITCH) and it's mostly just shit not behaving how it's supposed to. do i suck it up and just go do something else for a while, come back and beat it later?

    If its pissing you off that much, set the controller down, and slowly walk outside...

    But seriously, Gilg v2 is just a bitch any way you look at it. Just keep trying.

    But seriously. Get a Nihaopiloa (sp? - it's the item that reverses item effects), equip it on someone, and have them use a Remedy on Enkidu. Have two characters Decoy a third character with highest defense armor, your strongest weapon, with Curaja gambits. With Martyr/Inquisitor this character should be rapidly burning and regaining MP. Try landing Slow on Gilgamesh if you can. Once Enkidu is down, the battle becomes far simpler, but Gilgamesh will keep getting stronger as you decrease his HP.

    You shouldn't even need to reverse tank with this setup.

    Laggy? You're not casting spells that tend to animation-lock the action like Flare or Holy are you?

    Alright, thanks Jehryn. Does the nihoapila (yeah just guessed at that) pretty much negate Enkidu from the battle? Gilg smacks Vaan (my tank with STQ, giant's helm and that caribeener (sp?) mail) for 1.5 - 2k, enkidu is more around 800-1k. Will the remedy trick remove Enkiud's prot/haste/shell shit or just put a bunch of negative status effects on him? Vaan has 7.1k HP bubbled, which brings me to my next question.

    Accessories? I have genji gloves, bubble belts, and cat ear hoods aplenty. Bubble belt vaan, decoy him, and cat ear hoods on balthier/ashe? Balth has fomalhault and ashe has a deathbringer + genji shield.

    Edit: no, I'm just spamming P. Downs when people die, and casting reverse/decoy/faith/bravery, normal buffs. But it's actually going off like a goddamn quickening, with that little grace period.

    Your very first action in the field should apply the Remedy and Dispel on Enkidu, while your 3rd character Dispels Gilgamesh. The Remedy should add at least a very strong Blind on Enkidu, which will negate most of the insta-kills you receive a la Crushing Fangs.

    Enkidu will use an ability to restore all its buffs sometime when fighting. Reapply Dispel.

    Your Decoy tank should have a Bubble Belt constantly. Once Enkidu is down, Gilgamesh will likely start getting high hit combos one-shotting your guys. After stealing, set one guy on Berserk and go to town on his ass to beat him into the next mode. (It should also be noted that Berserking a character with a strong weapon can be very effective for restoring MP with Inquistor if they get low - this is why I typically have two people set up for Berserk and alternate the effect between them) Later on when Gilgamesh starts using Monarch Sword, you can start using two Decoys with the third character on Pheasant Netsuke + Phoenix Down gambit (Raise and 100% HP restore).

    Gilgamesh will also use Perfect defense (Physical/Magical Paling) in the middle of the fight. Take this time to reapply Protectra.

    Gilgamesh is definitely a bitchy mark to take down, but the Masamune is well worth the effort.

    I just straight tanked him, and pummeled the dog, but Hastega helps a lot

    Yeah or you can just pretty much spam Phoenix Downs (I tried to do this with Raise but it wouldn't work, since Phoenix Downs are usually instantaneous) attacking when people are at full HP 'till the dog's dead and have someone be attacking Gilg to get agro from him while other DD is hitting Enkidu .. Makes it a bit of a longer fight but imo it was a little easier.

    At what lv did you guys do it? I did it with Vaan at 61 and the others at 45, i lost a few times at first, but i won on the 3rd time. Then i figured out reverse tanking made my life easier when i got him down to 50% HP. Was a hell of alot of fun.

    Oh and in my first win, i actually manualy changed Vaans accesory to counter Gilga's status move... everytime...

    I did it with a group of 50, and the other 3 at teens. I reverse tanked it, and as soon as the dog is down it became just a long fight. It's not really hard 3v1 with reverse.

    yeah lordender, I ended up using that strat when he get into rage mode at the end. worked like a charm, and I had Reddas zerked raping shit the whole time. from there it went incredibly smooth. ended up using 2 megalixirs but w/e, i'm never going to use them anyway and i have 1 left so it seemed like a good idea. won me the match >_>. blew all my hi-ethers and most of my ethers (and 1 elixir) on fafnir too, doing the rock trick. meh >_> ill just synth them if i need more.
