    So I've managed to beat all but the Holy and Dark 3* magicite.

    I've had a play around with some party comps, but looking for a more solid approach.

    My holy options are:


    Agrias - BSB, OSB, USB
    Hope - OSB
    Ramza - BSB1
    TGCid - BSB, OSB, USB (full LD)
    Cid Raines - BSB, OSB (full LD)
    Marche - USB

    Dark options:

    TGCid - (BSB)
    Garland - BSB1
    Cid Raines - BSB, OSB (full LD)
    Seymour - BSB, SSB
    Nabaat - BSB
    Golbez - BSB
    Sephiroth - BSB2

    Healer options:
    Y'Shtola BSB - full LD
    Penelo BSB
    Selphie BSB1
    Aerith BSB
    Relm BSB
    Rosa SSB (mblink), BSB
    Eiko BSB
    Aphmau BSB+USB+LMR
    Deuce BSB
    Arc SSB1+2

    Utility:
    Ramza Shout SSB
    OK mUSB+BSB
    Noctis SSB
    Shelke No SB - full LD

    Any party ideas you can suggest while I'm toying around with a few?

    Shadow dragon:

    I suggest three dps, one healer and one support.

    Orlandeau: give him Mako Might or Dr mog Teachings as Rm, use the usb and then spam assault sabre or holy cross/ guardbringer
    Marche: use the usb asap (use Ramza for entrust), meanwhile use proshellga and some holy abilities
    Agrias:use the bsb asap for the imperil holy, meanwhile use ls/protectga or shellga
    Ramza: mako might/Dmt, use shout. Abilities: wrath and entrust
    Yshtola: wrath and curada.

    Res dark accessories are mandatory. If you have some holy boost equipment, use them.
    And for RMs use much more holy damage, much more damage when hitting weakness, etc.

    Mist dragon:
    I suggest this party
    Raines with memento mori and dark zone
    Nabaat with wrath and a dark ability of your choice (spam her bsb for imperil dark)
    Shelke with Entrust and wrath (Entrust Raines giving her Dr Mog T or MM as RM)
    Ok with protectga and ultra cure (give him MM or Dr Mog T as RM)
    Yshtola with shellga and curada

    Use res holy accessories and if you have holy boost equipment use them.
    Use much more damage with dark, etc as your RM.

    For both dragons, use fabula guardian as RW.

    In the dungeons and events section you'll find a topic regarding 3* magicities: you'll find a lot of different strategies :)

    Well the mist dragon setup worked perfectly! Thank you. Dark Zone does a huge amount of the damage. I didn't have any other dark ability for Nabaat so it was just Wrath - entrust from Shelke and BSB > Spam CMD2 until more BSB. Healing was pretty safe too. I could probably take Ultra Cure off OK and give him some damage ability.

    Run time was 30.26seconds! Could probably shave this down to sub30 but Raines Dualcast was proc'ing regularly.

    You have a look at them. @Jamie 's shadow dragon setup helped me to achieve sub30 Shadow Dragon, but there indeed was a lot of RNG involved.

    Mist Dragon is pretty much a DPS race overall. Keep pounding from start to end and you should be able to skip the mist forms. Mage is likely the way to go for you, given your SBs.

    Shadow Dragon is more specific, you need to do 114,300 damage before 10.5s to avoid black fang. You could do a 4 man clear or try to revive, but coming up with a setup to bypass it is more viable. Cid Raines and TG Cid should be able to get that for you. Check out this reddit post. I used it to get my initial clear. https://www.reddit.com/r/FFRecordKe...adow_dragons_fang_is/?st=JHA1S4NS&sh=58d7f968

    TBH Raines BSB + a faithga is all you need. You should definitely LD Raines too. After that it's just mechanics
