Do you think most of the Nightmare dungeons can just be brute forced now? From what I can see I need to clear all 12 of them to unlock magicite and I remember those fights being super gimmicky which is why I only ever bothered to clear 3 of 12.

They're definitely much easier now with modern abilities and soul breaks. Use a guide if you need to. It shouldn't really need all that much effort

Whew, I spent a lot of time this weekend trying to beat Manticore and I finally did it. It's just really hard to stay alive... for a little while I tried subbing in Selphie instead of Elarra because of last stand, but last stand isn't actually that helpful against a boss that inflicts sap with half his attacks. Finally I went back to Elarra, tightened up my run, and I think got a little lucky with doublecasts. I managed to break through phase 2 in between Frost and Savage Combo which I didn't even know was possible. 28.23 clear.

Also I used crystal waters for the first time ever, I didn't really realize how many we had collected and how much difference they make (1200 HP for Elarra).

Team:
Locke: Mind Break, 6* fire ability, Chain, Imperil BSB, Mako Might
Elarra: Curada, Hastega, USB, TGM RM
Vivi: Chain Firaga, Chain Firaja, USB, damage RM
Papalymo: Chain Firaga, Protectga, USB, SSB (hastega, party magic buff, quick cast 3), Doctor Mog's Teachings
Terra: Meltdown, Tritoch, OSB, USB, damage RM
Magicite: Phoenix, Geosgaeno, King Bomb, Famfrit, Evrae

Now I just need to repeat it 3 more times...

I have yet to even attempt Manticore or Mateus.
I have some good fire stuff, but no chain. Still, I think Manticore should be doable

100% gonna use:
Terra USB, OSB, AOSB
Elarra USB

Probably:
Krile BraveUSB, also has imperil BSB if that would be useful. I'd probably want to LD her, which I haven't done yet

Any of the following:

- Alphi with SSB for buff and RS
- OK mUSB, either as an additional dps or entrust-bot
- Tyro Godwall, maybe entrusting afterwards
- Mustadio with USB and the 6* imperil ability
- Shelke, pure entrust bot

Don't forget Edge when fighting Manticore! The hardest part about the fight is the hailstorm move that removes haste so his USB0 is what makes the difference between life and death in my runs.

Also with imperils and Vivi's level 99 rm Edge does 9999x2 with smoldering fire on Manticore even in Savage mode. Sure that doesn't sound like a lot but Manticore has a damage reduction Savage mode that refreshes every 4 actions so chainless it helps a ton!

I'm getting tempted to get the Burst Pickup and getting Ignis's burst. I'm so close to able to beat Phoenix and while I think I can do it without him it seems like it'd be much easier with and I feel like with AASBs being a thing I'm going to be using him more and more.

How long do his two ingredient critical boosts last does anyone know? Is it 25 seconds like implied on the spreadsheet?

Meh decided to do it.

Went 4/11 on the draw.

Beatrix USB, Yuna Glint, Ramza BSB1 (the one without shout), Ashe SSB

Not a bad draw I guess. Kinda wanted Yuna's Glint and Beatrix's USB is okay. Might use her in torment.

FWIW I was fine just bringing Hastega to Manticore. You just need to pay attention to where you are in the fight and be ready to cast it at the right time.

Anyway, got OK BSB in the daily draw. I tried a bunch to draw that way back in the day, finally got it in the daily draw, heh.

This is such a wretched clear. I should be able to do it 3 more times but man having Tidus do literally all the damage is just kinda silly (to be fair it's not quite all Rikku with two tasty meals in her does about 60k with her burst entry)

But hey at least Ignis did his job I guess.

I got Hope's Legend Materia on the daily today, might be useful for Savage mode breaking on Ark (well if I had any other holy mages besides lol Raines)

At the very least it's holy boosting armor.

Type-0 torment is supposed to be tomorrow, I should be pretty good for this one, have USBs for King, Ace, Deuce and Cinque, last slot can either be Rem, Nine or the Seven, or I'll probably off realm OK.

Aside from Deuce's healing USB I have basically nothing for t-0, just a couple bursts and LMs. So my plan is basically to try to clear the first two stages with Deuce, an entruster, Nine (who can build a wind chain with his BSB), and Cloud/Zack.

I have an almost complete Rem (full LD) and Cinque USB (full LD).
Deuce BSB for Medica certainly won't cut if for D???, but may be good enough for the first 2 difficulties.
Unfortunately, the rest of my T-0 is pretty much worthless.

Sub 20'd first two difficulties of torment Nox Suzaku, with King and Ace legend dived that's shaves through the first half quick. This boss isn't too bad except for the dispel, death to member 2 and 100% interrupt move, that one can kill you if you don't have hastaga refreshed from the dispel and an instant medica since Nox Suzaku will likely kill your party if he gets another AoE .

Team was Ace, Seven, Cinque, King and Deuce in that order.

Got Fire Assault with the rubies for Locke or Ignis on Mateus and for Lion for the next torment.

For FF7 Torment are you guys powering through the Wall or are you bringing someone who can use dispel. Cause only Angeal can using Banshing Strike so I was wondering if I need to being someone who can do the dispel the spell or if I just need to sacrifice some synergy points and bring someone else cause my Angeal is awful.

You could use the 3* Dispel with Cait Sith, Aerith, or Rufus (off the top of my head).
I haven't actually attempted the VII in a long time, so I'm not exactly the best person to ask, though.

After checking, my D280 team (that failed miserably on D???) had Aerith with Dispel and Shellga, healing through BSB commands.

Yeah I used Rufus myself. If you have a stacked FFVII DPS or two, of which there are many, you can afford to have a mostly supportive utility slot. Rufus and Cait Sith both have high levels of support + can cast dispel so you can toss them in with Aeris if you don't wanna waste one of her slots on it. If you have literally any of their soul breaks they're decent filler (Rufus really only if Seph is one of your damage guys since his only real use that Cait Sith doesn't provide is to imperil dark)

Rude can also use dispel for what it's worth (not much till six months later)

Don't feel bad if you're having trouble on torment Jenova, she's still one of the hardest torments, I only sub30'd the 280 one recently, thanks to the Vincent USB from the free 33 pull.

So it looks like there are 4 more regular events before we get to the next torment (and next batch of torment abilities), which would be 5 weeks assuming we follow the normal schedule. That's without leaving time for a possible KH3 crossover event. Although in JP for some reason the VIII event got crammed in during the week between Tactics and IV instead of getting its own week, so that would cut it down by a week if they do the same for us. I'm super impatient to get Scary Blizzard but it seems like we're kind of going to be in a lull for a while.

Ranged weapons are always an option if you want to use a physical team.

Bartz can use bows. Refia and Locke have access to thrown.
Fires Within also happens to be a ranged ability, so that's an option if you have some tools for Zell or Sabin. Just be careful with your SBs.

Keep in mind the following:

-Ranged weapons make anything ranged
- A lot of fire techs are ranged no matter the weapon. The Machinist ones, Monk Fires From Within, Shooter ones. Some soul breaks too.
- you just need to know when he goes up. If you do a good hit or two while he's up he descends next action

It's not as big a deal as you think unless you're full melee.

Got my 4 Manticore kills done, including one mastery. I will never have to do that again.

Since I don't have a fire chain, Phoenix couldn't break the damage cap with his regular attacks.

Tyro Godwall - Mage Hymn, Entrust
Krile BUSB, BSB - Meltdown, Vali
Elarra USB - Curada, Hastega
Shelke - Wrath, Entrust
Terra USB, OSB, AOSB - Chain Firaja, Mental Breakdown

Main dps was Terra USB+OSB spam (+AOSB finisher), being fed plenty of gauge by Shelke.
Krile with BUSB as secondary dps and savage-breaker. She also cast her Imperil BSB twice with her excess gauge.
Tyro opened with Godwall and Fabula Raider, then spammed Mage Hymn and fed his excess gauge to Elarra.
Elarra's job was the hardest. Knowing when to refresh USB, and when to save her turn to recast Hastega, without everyone dying.

Do you guys think we're going to get a KH3 banner? If so what would you want on there? If they just reran last year's banner but replaced the Cloud BSB/LMR with new Awakenings for Sora and Riku it would be a pretty strong banner. That would be bad for people who spent a lot of money last year though so I'd expect more new stuff if they do it.

I doubt we'll get anything for KH3 at this time, if we were we'd probably have an announcement for it already (plus it's too early for awakenings) Maybe if there's a placeholder week in the next maintenance.

I almost beat Mateus yesterday, got him to like 95%, but I was at the end of my homes for Locke and Garlond and Bartz with blazing quadstrike wasn't doing enough damage to beat his reflected osbs so he was healing himself more than I could damage him and he stalled me out. I haven't got that close again yet but at least it showed that it is possible for me to beat him, I just need a LOT of good rng...

Gonna need to home Burnt Offering to r5 and probably should get another Belies and inherit two spell wards on him since Famfrit's fire dampens are obviously useless here. Haven't done any magicite this month otherwise because of full open dailies but those end soon.

Arcanes debuted in the 3rd anniversary but we got them in the first KH event. So if Awakenings dropped ahead of the 4th anniversary it wouldn't be that surprising. We'll see. Octopath event was a few months after the game came out so maybe they'll go that route instead... who knows.

Arcanes weren't as big of a powercreep as awakenings are though which is why it was okay to get those early. That's probably why Dena gave us the wind magicite early as well since in Japan the the holy/dark *5 magicite got the challenge sucked out of them by awakenings, and if we also get the next magicite early that would make people stew in frustration and impulse pull on trap banners prior to 4th anniversary. If we got awakenings now that would be a monkey wrench to that.

After my chainless Manticore runs, I've also managed to beat Mateus x4 (not mastered, unfortunately).

Basically Aerith keeping people alive and speedy with her USB2 (Carbuncle to waste his turns and Memento of Prayer to counter the Sap and occasionally trigger a party heal), while Mustadio with USB imperils him (also Armor BD to overwrite the buff), OK pUSB buffs the party, then and entrusts Aerith, Bartz USB2 breaks Savage mode, and Zell does as much damage as possible with his USB and fire monk abilities.

Since I don't have an ice chain either, things aren't gonna be any easier going forward, especially with Typhon and especially Syldra being supposedly super hard. I'll probably have to draw on the upcoming FFVIII banner for Laguna chain, if I want to have a real shot.

FF Brave Exvius just had its KH collab, so it could be a matter of whether or not Square or Disney want to space out the collabs between the mobile games first.

I'm sure we'll get one soon enough. I know Square Enix also likes to give a collab for KHUX to go with Record Keeper.

Aw nuts I was hoping to be the first one to beat Mateus here (if only Bartz triplecasted a few more times that fight...) well at least I got the last fire and lightning crystals from today's event ultimates to r5 Burnt Offering so that should help.

Gotta admit I was pretty tempted by today's banner since I could use better FF12 stuff for torment and Balthier's USB is like the best thing outside of a chain/awakening to beat Mateus, and I probably would have bit too if it wasn't for Penelo's BSB2! That's my new cursed relic (after Edea's sorceress gown) so nope to this banner! Thankfully that thing has no foreseeable future especially now that bursts rarely appear on banners in Japan now.

Getting hard to resist good banners with 250 mythril now, only plan to pull on FF1 and maybe 11 before Fourth Anniversary.

Man today was a weird day for magicite farming, now I'm having trouble beating Belias but starting to finally beat Phoenix comfortably. Rikku's quickcast must be throwing my muscle memory timing off since that last stupid 9000+ savage hellfire keep getting me before I can steal attack and/or break savage mode. Also tried a more DPS focused team with Rikku using USB1 and OK using USB3 and I could probably sub 20 Belias if it wasn't for that Hellfire also coming out so early in Phase 3. Sucks I have to go back to making OK an semi-entrustbot just to have a last stand for that dumb Hellfire.

So weird since I sub30'd Belias day one and he wasn't that bad from what I remember...
