    I been playing for roughly 2-3 years, and really never tried any nightmares until recently. I kind of just auto farm orbs and farm, but I decided to start giving end game a go.

    I posted a link with all my Soul Breaks, yes, I have a lot.(It was a long day at work on a Saturday, I decided to make a sheet of everything I have)

    I would love to have some party help, especially in getting Nightmares complete, and also get the Mote Dungeons completed as well. Any help is GREATLY appreciated!

    For the Nightmare dungeons, here’s a comprehensive guide from Reddit.

    https://reddit.app.link/BV7t1gYzrN

    They are all puzzle bosses, so strategy is a lot more critical than raw power. They are also focused on the particular ability school, so hones are also required.

    Good luck, and have fun! Let us know if you run into specific problems and I’m sure folks will be able to advise.

    Thanks fellas, I completed Crushdown, Ultima and Omega Drive.

    Valigarmanda I am struggling with, I get to about 50%, my damage just seems super weak on this boss.

    Edit: Beat the boss, now going to work on affliction break!

    Update:

    Now getting stomped to Affliction Break boss, Necrophobe. I get him to about 60% and he just starts casting a bunch. Any tips for this guy?

    Also prioritize on both Meltdown and Curada. One covers tri element like Vali; other has better SB gauge gain per use than Curaja and Ultra Cure.

    Yeah I got Vali dead, he was a little rough but a little research helped and tweeked my team a bit. It's the affliction break boss I can't get passed. He is rough!

    Oh shoot, I'm on my phone and just saw an email, didn't read it fully.

    I saw the Reddit post, guess I need a better team for affliction, I'll move on to meltdown and give that a go!

    After scanning your relics I can promise you that you can clear it. Keep in mind people cleared these back in the day with no SBs and core characters lol. Although some you might be able to brute force through, most of those fights are about mechanics. Read through Kenlim's link at the top and make a team of your best SUP? chars.

    Any idea what I should change or make better?

    This is a Fight where a team of specialists, in this case characters who could use 5* Support abilities, is more favored to win.

    Y'shtola and Sazh should stay. And among others I would nominate the following to be slot in depending on what level they are:
    • Faris
    • Sazh
    • Onion Knight
    • Quina
    For this fight the following abilities are crucial especially for phase 2 when the four bits appear:
    • Power Breakdown (PBD) for top right bit
    • Armor Breakdown (ABD) for top left bit
    • Magic Breakdown (MBD) for lower right bit
    • Mental Breakdown (MeBD) for lower left bit
    For more details on mechanics, really... U need to read the guide that kenlimkenlim shared. Doesn't get anymore detailed than that short of making a video for you.

    Yeah I'll come back to Necrophobe, he's just a turd for me. Just seems like I lack damage for it.

    I'm going to work on Curada next.

    Edit: Got Curada! Easy one
    Editx2: Beat the Tomberries, that was super easy with Crushdown spam.

    I suggest that you prioritize Mote Dungeons as it changes every 48 hrs. I can't remember if you get Mythril as a first time clear reward.

    As for Magicite dungeons, just play at your own pace. But try to strike a win every 24hrs as keystones refresh the same time RW gil is awarded.
