    Siren is here! And she likes to counter - when below 40%HP - every attack (except summons) with a 9999 curaja :3

    [​IMG]

    HP: 830.000
    Break resist: 80%
    Weak to dark (150%), absorb holy and resistant to every other elements.
    Status resist: everything except poison! Get your Quistis and Edgar ready!

    Here some tips to fight her (it's copied and pasted from reddit xD)

    • Siren has a mixed offense, you'll need both protectga and shellga for this fight. In addition, while her primary element is holy, she'll also use lightning and ice attacks as well.
    • I hope your dark-oriented SB's are physical-based, because magic characters will have a very tough time here due to Savage Luncatic Voice (which is both a scripted attack as well as regularly reoccurring). It is a strong AoE magic holy attack with a 36% chance to silence. You 100% absolutely need to wear holy resist here because Siren's ST/3T holy attacks hit for insane amounts - if you really want a mage party, make sure they have innate silence resist in their dives.
    • Note that Savage Embrace is an extremely strong (578%) AoE physical holy attack with a 123% chance to Sap.
    • Once Siren drops below 40% HP, she will counter all attacks (except summon) with Counter Curaja, which will heal her for 9999. SB's and strong multi-hit abilities are a must for the last leg of the battle.
    • Note that Siren is very fast, and all of her abilities have a decreased cast time (1.2s), and enters her enrage mode at 30 turns. Siren will always do nothing her first turn and use haste on her 2nd turn, if you can slot in a dispel, it may buy you a few more seconds before she enters enrage mode.

    Siren was really easy to manage damage, it's wasting OK for ultra cure and dispel that limits my ability to sub 30. I consistently finish in 41seconds. Silent Resistance is imperative for success.

    Cid Raines begins battle with Momento Mori and spams BSB

    OK casts MUSB, dispel and Ultra Cure (in case of Silence)

    Selphie casts Shellga, Curada and USB

    Kefka begins with Momento Mori and spams Dark Zone until 3 SB bars to close second half of battle with consecutive OSBs with Shelke entrusting.

    Shelke Entrusts to Cid first turn and Kefka the remainder of battle.

    31:22. So close to sub 30.
    Once I get better Magicites from Hades I'm sure I can shave off the 1 and a half second.

    Gaffgarion: USB
    Sephiroth: BSB / OSB
    Shelke: N/A
    Tyro: USB3
    Y'shtola: BSB

    Managed a sub 30 this morning by making some small changes.

    Sub-30 Siren, which leaves me with just Hades now.

    2ACA4C9E-0D3C-4784-9D28-535F0592E52E.jpeg

    First sub-30 clear was with Cloud+Zack combo. But it was a lucky run and nowhere near consistent enough. So I researched a little more and eventually came to this setup. Had to move away from my preferred dual battery or chain setups. But sometimes the good old 3 DPS + boostga is the best way to go.

    Riku (LDed) : R3 Dread Wpn + R3 Sanguine Cross, AOSB, +30% Dark
    Orlandeau (LDed): R3 Dread Wpn + R5 LS, USB, +30% Sword
    Shadow: R4 Ancestral Reflection + R4 Shadow Embodied, BSB, +40% Ninja
    OK (LDed): R5 Wrath + R3 Entrust, BSB, DMT
    Relm (Half LDed): R4 Curada + R5 Shellga, USB, MM

    Magicites: Shadow Dragon, Phantom, Darkmare, Isgebind, Mist Dragon

    Attained my first win which was a sub60 victory. As if the Holy Storms, Silencing, and self-buffs were not enough, the later Counter Curaja mechanic really proved to be a difficult wall to pass.

    [​IMG]

    Ranting aside, I'm seeking fellow Forum Keepers' advice as to how I might potentially optimize my team, or even achieve sub30 through ability rotation adjustment.

    Team setup:
    • Riku FLD with USB, BSB, Glint
    • Shelke FLD, no SBs
    • Onion Knight FLD with full SB kit & LMR, opened and refreshed PUSB
    • Tyro FLD with BSB
    • Relm Full RD
    • RW selected was Dr Mog Wall
    • Magicite
      • Main: L99 Phantom
      • Sub: L80 Mist Dragon, L80 Marilis, L99 Isgebind, L99 Isgebind

    Your feedback is much appreciated!

    I'm going to keep this short and say 1 dps is the biggest problem here.

    Oh. Sorry that I missed out on my benched options:

    Physical Dark DPS:
    • Garland BSB
    • Gaffgarion BSB
    • Seifer USB
    • Sephiroth OSB+SSB1
    • Aranea OSB
    • Rufus SSB Imperil Dark
    Magical Dark DPS:
    • Cid Raines FLD OSB+BSB
    • Cloud of Darkness FLD BSB+LMR
    • Kuja OSB
    • Exdeath Unique
    And.... That's about it. I'm thinking that I'm lacking some quality options. I did try for Magical Dark approach, based on this link but failed

    Shelke - LM1+LM2 - N/A - Mako Might - Wrath+Entrust
    OK - LMR+LM2 - BSB+SSB(m) - Mogs Teachings - Shellga+Dispel
    Larsa - LM1+LM2 - BSB - Gathering Storm - Protectga+Ultra Cure
    RW Wall, Main Magicite Shadow Dragon

    This is not a fight I wish to repeat (or any of the 4*s for that matter).
    Everyone holy resist accessory, Seymour and Raines both have dark boost on armor and weapons. Sub magicites: 1 holy resist, 1 lightning resist, 1 ice resist and 1 shadow attack up (all 3*, not inherited, lvl99)

    Play by play:
    1. Shelke entrusts to Larsa (instant)
    2. OK casts BSB (instant for haste)
    3. Larsa casts BSB (to dodge first silence)
    4. Seymour MM, Raines Wrath
    5. Shelke casts RW Wall (instant)
    6. OK casts Shellga (instant)
    7. Larsa casts Protectga (lands before first attack)
    Siren attacks
    8. Syemour continues MM (DZ damage too low at this point), Raines casts MM
    9. Shelke wrath
    10. OK dispells and later summons magicite for imperil, re-applies wall, dispels regen/haste, towards the end I used his leftover bar for ssb healing
    11. Larsa begins healing, reapplies bsb before aoe silence attack
    12. Shelke entrusts to Raines, after witch just wraths and entrusts raines towards the end of the fight
    13. Seymour casts BSB2 (for en-dark), and then uses DZ every turn, uses BSB1 from this point on whenever available (for imperil stacks)
    14. Raines BSB into CMD1, 2 commands before BSB falls off casts an OSB -> receives 4 bars from Shelke -> CMD1 -> BSB -> OSB spam

    As you can see, the strategy is to OSB spam the end of the fight while having a 2x-3x imperiled boss. I had to get lucky with double cast medica commands and had to time the astra to dodge silence. IT was stressful. 47 seconds

    Also funny story:

    While testing different compositions, I came up with the idea of using a heavy combat cloud with USB, because you know how the charge builder is dark and earth damage.

    So I set up everything needed (buffs, build bars, build charges), unleash the USB and release the full charged heavy combat and.... 1100 x 8.
    ...
    O.O
    ...
    WTF?!

    So as it turns out, while the charge building skill is dark+earth, the big hitter that consumes the charges is earth only. Facepalm :D
