    Notes: It seems we are getting it with the maintenance today. Also I remember a lot of people expressing their desire to have separate threads for the elements. An admin can merge the threads please, if you don't agree on separate threads.

    HP: 667,636
    Break Resist: 60%
    Weaknesses: Absorbs lightning, 50% weak to earth, 50% resist to all other elements

    • You might be thinking, "Ixion has low HP, lower defensive stats and only 60% break resist, this sounds super easy!" - well, it would be if Ixion didn't dispel you dozens of times throughout the fight! :)
    • Contrary to the other magicite dungeons, you definitely should consider a dedicated support character for this fight - the constant dispelling coupled with the lower break resist will provide some much needed damage buffer for your team.
    • Ixion has three forms - Regular, Defensive, and Evasive. In Defensive form, he defense and resistance double (19,197 DEF/27,468 RES to 38,394 DEF/50,358 RES), while in Evasive form, his evasion increases from 70 to 420 (he also gets a minor speed bump that isn't worth mentioning, since eventually he'll cap out at 650 speed anyway). Once he leaves Default phase, he will switch between Evasive and Defensive for the rest of the fight - at most he'll stay in one phase for 6 turns, but has a small chance (10%) to switch on an earlier turn.
    • Ixion has a mixed offense, so include both AoE physical and magic attacks - the attacks to watch out for are Aerospark (ST physical attack, Dispel), Savage Aerospark (AoE ranged physical lightning attack, Dispel), and Savage Thor's Hammer (AoE piercing magic attack, Imperil Lightning on party).
    • In addition to scripted Savage Aerospark on certain turns, he can use it on any turn he wants with no limitation, so repeated Savage Aerosparks are not uncommon and to be expected! Since it deals physical damage, physical blinks will keep you safe from damage and the dispel. Edge SSB (or insert other strong physical blink soul break) along with a dedicated entruster can keep block a lot of them, but even then you will most likely still be hit with dispel throughout the fight.

    Yes, Earth is my weak element. Yes, it was ugly. Yes, Ixion can go fuck himself with his own Savage Aerospace spam. But it's a Mastered Clear so I'll take it for now.

    See, @robaisolken!? I know how to spam Phys Blinks too! ...Especially if it's Penelo's USB. :p

    I just went OSB Spam with a dived Rinoa. Waited for her to gain quick cast from LD before unleashing OSB's.
    I found better damage just to spam OSB rather than try to get en-earth from her SSB.
    Shelke entrusted to Rinoa and OK entrusted to Edge.

    5/6 magicite down, this Ixion to avoid his gimmick dispel, you need back to back pblink, so have shelke full time be entruster to edge pblink ftw. My biggest investment here is full LD Maria with just her bsb, it's not part of my plan but that's fine, winning rate here 70%, consider very stable run.
