    Hello everyone! I feel very accomplished right now, so I needed to make a post here.
    [​IMG]
    I got this just a few minutes ago :). I am entirely free to play, I have not spent a cent in this game, and this was still possible (although it required 2 mythril, one on each Seifer and Edea). I was lucky enough to get the Official Ball in my only 11 pull, and it was the saving grace with the protect trick.

    In case anyone wanted to know, this was my setup:

    Also, shout out to Baenre for discovering the protect trick for us, and OathKeeper for paving the way and helping with medal counts for mastery

    Very well done! :D Congratulations! Makes me wonder if I can give Elite a go before the event ends...

    Congratulations!

    Some of what you did is apparent from the skills you chose, but would you be willing to walk through what you did for each boss fight?

    Of course I can run through it! So, obviously getting through the trash is a nightmare, used curaja on the skeletons for instant kills, and physical skills on the other enemies. I reset a bunch until I took no damage on the first trash battle.

    For Iguions, I started by power breaking both and mental breakdown on both. Then let off the quakes. Aerith healed whenever anyone got critical (she only had 3 curaja left) and protected Celes. I needed Celes to get hit the most because of protect + drain strike. After all 4 quakes, I just let off the last of my physical abilities to take them down. I actually got lucky because Tidus almost died, and Aerith was out of heals, but he got petrified!

    For Seifer, I started with Tidus SB for slow, Celes SB for shell, magic break, power break, mental breakdown (takes 2 rounds to apply all) Then used the protect->Status Reels->protect trick with Tidus and Celes at full ATB. This allowed for 70k damage for every round of the trick (2 double cuts, 2 drain strikes, 1 magic break). When trick not active, reapply shield, mental breakdown, and power break, and heal. Rinoa constantly letting out bio. Repeat until dead.

    Edea was largely the same as Seifer, except I didn't bother with Tidus SB since she is immune to slow. She's easier that Seifer in my opinion.

    Wow this is impressive guaje mad props
    Can some one fill me in on the status reels trick ? Is it only possible with the soul break ? Is there a way to mimick it without the official ball? Also how helpful was dia?

    That link will explain the trick. Unfortunately it won't really be possible without the ball until Armor Breakdown is released. Dia was worthless. I only brought it to use once against the Iguions. It is their clear condition.

    but grats! you did a good job honing those skills lol ( wish i had enough 4* orbs to get and hone more skills, but thx to college i had to skip aerith event >-> ( i think i only got the non-element and wind 4* cause they're super hard to get during that time, but still they werent enough.. )

    Congrats man! I'm f2p as well and this gives me hope for accomplishing more than I thought possible from one who doesn't throw in a lot of money for gear.

    Congratulations Guaje! Nice job!

    Must have farmed Moblitz a lot to get a rank 2 Curaja.

    Barely at all, actually. I used all of my Aerith orbs on it. Still don't have BladeBlitz.

    Ah I see. Was about to charge into there and farm. But remembered Slowga has priority.

    Considering only its capability, not really. For collection/completion purposes, its pretty cool.
