    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: 915,815
    Break Resist: 80%
    Weaknesses: Absorbs wind, 50% weak to Ice, 50% resist to all other elements

    • The worst of the 4* magicite elemental bosses, Tiamat hits like a truck. In addition to her already very high atk/mag, she will use absorb magic (ST, -20% mag to target, +20% mag to user) and absorb strength (ST, -20% atk to target, +20% atk to user) throughout the fight, boosting her stats even further. You should avoid using single stat buffs (e.g. Shout, Sheepsong), since they will be overwritten.
    • Even surviving the first four turns can be extremely difficult - Tiamat always uses Absorb Magic on her first turn, followed by Twister (AoE magic Wind attack). If you don't have Shellga up before her 2nd turn, you are done (and no way to get Wall up in time unless you have someone with IC LM). Her 3rd turn is Absorb Strength, followed by Jet Fire (AoE ranged physical attack).
    • Magic users beware - Tiamat has a small chance throughout the fight to use Silent Claw, which deal light physical damage with a 15% chance to Silence!
    • Once Tiamat drops below 80% HP, she gains access to Savage Twister (AoE piercing magic wind attack) and Savage Jet Fire (AoE ranged physical fire/wind attack). Since Savage Jet Fire is impossible to mitigate via accessories at this current time, my suggestion is to bring along wind resist to help with Savage Twister, and bring along fire resist through magicite passives.
    • Note that elemental blinks (e.g. Fire Blink from Bismarck) will negate the damage from Jet Fire.
    • While you may be tempted to bring along Power/Magic Breakdown to remove the self-buff from Tiamat, her stats are so high it isn't worth the wasted turn/ability slot.

    I am the schmuck who tried the "hardest" first... Yes... Yes, it is. It took me at least 5 hours to get it mastered.

    My first win was 1 minute and 5 seconds winning with a Wendigo attack :)

    My 2nd victory was 55 seconds but still not mastered :/

    With the same team and more efficient planning, I mastered with 45 seconds. One big change needed was a R3 entrust.

    Curilla is back for Radiant Shield damage and defensive DPS.

    Eiko spams USB and BSB.

    Shelke battery dye.

    Noctis casts Gladiolus Link SSB2 for party CT0 as often as possible.

    Squall is the Ice God who judges you unworthy. "Go talk to a wall"

    The damage Tiamat puts out is insane. Needed 2 fully dedicated healers.

    You don't have to have a soul break that is instant AND last stand.
    For instance, my alt used Penelo BSB (last stand) and Realm USB (instant).
    Another noteworthy option would be Arc SSB (instant + physical blink).
    Instant AOE heals and last stand makes this much easier but you don't have to have both on the same relic.

    It wouldn't surprise me if you could do it with Rosa USB alone, especially if you bring a dedicated entrust bot for her.

    Got lucky with KH banner and got the right Sora tools for Tiamat. Still took me an hour+ to get the right setup + rng, but first clear and 30 sub :D

    Finally done with all six. Definitely over-prepared for Tiamat. Four 4* Magicites over lvl 90.

    61E48313-7C6E-4017-AB5A-1F1003E32DBC.jpeg

    Relm USB + two Entrust batteries was MVP again.

    Unlike 3* sub-30s where I hardly used the same characters in the eight teams, for 4* I used OK in all six, Relm is four, Bartz/Sora in all six, and Shelke in three.

    And to my own surprise, I only used chains in four of the six, despite have chains for all six of the current elements. A second battery was more useful than a chain for Kraken and Tiamat.

    This sub-30 took a lot of tinkering and frustrating luck. Only Maliris left!

    Sora and Squall both have R3 Snowspell Strike and BSB. They are both fully LD.

    Sora has Gathering Storm/Double cast and EnIce materia.

    Squall has Orphan Cub and optional AOSB, I wanted it as a finishing move, but actually didn't need it in this fight.

    OK has 2x IC, VoF, Dr Mogs Teaching, wrath and entrust

    Noctis is LD with IC-SSB, Battleforged and lifesyphon

    Selphie is LD with USB and Mako Might
