    And it's cold outside
    And I feel the winter...
    there's a chill in the air
    of secrets untold...
    (I'm not crazy, it's just a song that came to my mind lol)


    Less than 9 hours and our beloved ice queen will scatter us like dust in the wind!

    Yeah, I'm gonna wait until I see someone clearing her up with only Elena Chain lol
    Elena USB is amazing, a great slot saver, and she also has access to Imperil, but unfortunately she got that free chain only... Would be awesome to fit her into my team since there's no chain for my Vincent and Balthier.

    Man I need to invest in fire tech.

    (Not gonna pull on the current fire banners though, saving one pull for VIII tonight)

    Physical Win



    Here is a video completely ignoring the wall mechanic. I found it easier to ignore it.

    After my pulls in recent Y5A, a trip to the Labs also gotten me Sephiroth en fire Unique, since it only requires 1 SB bar to cast. Special thanks to @Rem Tokimiya for tweaking my play for my Shiva Physical win from exceeding a minute to the record timings below.

    Shiva Melting Physical Fire Team
    • LD Sabin AASB+USB+OSB+GlintPlus+LMR1
    • LD Sephiroth AASB2+USB3+Unique (Nibelheim Nightmare)
    • LD Balthier AASB+CSB+USB1+GlintPlus+LMR1
    • LD Tyro USB4+LMR1 (LHS Win Screenshot); or LD Ignis BSB+LMR (RHS Win Screenshot)
    • RB Elarra USB1+GlintPlus
    • Main Magicite: Ifrit (inherited two Empower Fire L15)
    Coup de grâce:

    Team Setups:
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Sub Magicites: (LHS First Kill; RHS Farming)
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    More trivia :
    • Phase 1
      • Sabin mainly charges up until ready with 3 bars. Activates GlintPlus, then instant cast USB, then instant cast OSB.
      • After initial charging, Sephiroth starts with Unique, then USB3, and Unique again for complete 3 stacks en fire in Phase 1.
      • Balthier starts with three shots of Burnt Offering, then launches Chain. (If Ignis was used, he shoots Elarra awake around 12s mark.) Next, he goes GlintPlus and AASB to carry majority damage in Phase 1.
      • Tyro initially wraths up. He hits Elarra awake around 12s mark. Then launches his USB4. An alternative is to use Ignis BSB, whereby since both Sabin & Sephiroth SBs have means to attain crit=100%, so Ignis BSB commands are mainly for Balthier. After that Ignis is just an entrust bot.
    • Phase 2 onwards
      • After being diffused, Sabin AASB (targeting a wall) brings back the en fire stack up back to two, and spams Ironfist Fire.
      • After being diffused, Sephiroth AASB2 (targeting a wall) brings back the en fire stack up back to three, and spams Fire-touched Blade. If ice walls are still up, Frostfire spam should take it out.
      • Balthier mainly focus fire on boss, but should prioritize SB gauge to refresh chain.
      • Tyro would usually wrath then entrust back to Elarra to maintain HQC state using USB1.
      • Elarra should QC dispel proshellga on boss. Otherwise, her main priority is USB1.

    Well this is.... certainly an improvement from where I was?

    In the end Rosa was invincible so I just stopped spamming her USB2.

    I could've beaten her dealing 2 HP damage wih her normal attack if I wanted :p

    Update:

    So here's the story.
    Few days ago when I pulled on the fire banner wih the latest login ticket, I was hoping for something to help me beat Shiva.
    Instead I got Matoya BSB and dupe Yda BSB.
    Then I spent 15 blues to pull on ice banner and see if I get something nice for Valefor later on.
    Well, 4 relics: two dupes, Josef en-ice LMR and Steiner USB.
    Absolute crap.

    So I raged and bought Leviathan pack since I was planing to get the chains I needed anyway...

    So 1 pull goes for Laguna chain, 1 for Ramza chain and the last one on Dream Relic to choose a Awakening...
    Vincent was the choice. (Oh, all relics from these 3 pulls were dupes except for one.......... STEINER GLINT :ded:)

    And this is the result below:

    Beat magic weak Shiva with a Gen 1.0 physical chain. That's my way to say FU to the game.

    I regret nothing.

    Hail to the Fire Queen, bay-beh!
    [​IMG]

    I'd spent some time to put Vincent CSB & Friends to work. I had also ported over my dual healer configuration from my earlier Ifrit team win. Not disappointed!

    Shiva Melting Magical Fire Team
    • LD Terra AASB+AOSB+bUSB+Glint+LMR1
    • LD Vincent CSB+USB1+LMR1
    • LD Rubicante USB+BSB
    • LD Y'shtola USB1+bUSB+Glint+LMR2
    • RB Elarra USB1+GlintPlus
    • Main Magicite: Ifrit (inherited two Empower Fire L15)
    Coup de grâce:

    Team Setup:

    Sub Magicites:

    More trivia :
    • In short, the approach is roughly the same as my physical team approach.
    • Terra mainly charges up until ready with 3 bars. Activates Glint, then cast bUSB. Later, activates Glint, AASB, decimates walls with SMN, spams Chain Firaja till win. Throw in AOSB as finisher if desired.
    • Worst thing to happen to Vincent really is Stop. Hence, during Phase 2, once his gauge hits two, leave it be. Once Stop wears off, it is time to recast Chain. Cast USB1 mainly for the en fire so that he contributes to DPS.
    • Rubicante USB is great!!! Cast BSB mainly to take down walls using Cmd2.
    • Y'shtola SB gauge benefits more from taking hits thanks to Lionheart RM. Hence she does utility actions like casting RW Wall, dispel, and whacking asleep toons. She then uses bUSB for the entire mage team's benefit.
