Immediate healing needed as he brings you to no health right off the bat. Trance users rejoice!
Magic blink really helps eliminate your protectga and shellga from getting dispelled, and it really hurts not having it.
Instant KO accessories don't seem to help here.
Physical attacks seemed to be more damaging than magic.
Strongly recommend either 2 healers or giving a double cast healer Thunder God RM and entrusting to them immediately.
Soul Breaks Used:
I had 3 dead at the end, and still championed, 1 medal lost.
Urara's USB is insane here... o_o
Spoiler: Diamond Weapon
Diamond Weapon is thankfully weak to holy and Arc, Hope and Rem can all use Summons to trigger the Core mechanic, so along with a steady stream of extra Cast Speed from multiple sources (Onion mUSB, Rem USB, Urara USB, Urara spamming Allegro, etc.) you can rain holy armageddon down on it pretty easily.
Spoiler: Emerald Weapon
It's really recommended to finish off the eyes first whenever they spawn, as combined with the eyes, Emerald's damage input and bad RNG (i.e. both Ashe's Chain Thundaga and USB chase triggering Counter Stomp back-to-back right before Emerald Beam) can all ruin your run pretty easily even with Urara's USB as a crutch.
Otherwise if you're already beaten Kraken or Isgebind, Emerald Weapon shouldn't be _too_ bad.
Emerald Weapon (D350)
Diamond Weapon (D350)
Diamond Weapon was much easier than Emerald.
Physical Team is not recommended. I used TGCid and he was useless half the time, should have brought Raines instead.
More Urara USB insanity...
Spoiler: Ruby Weapon
Kind of a slog here for me; Probably should've brought Kuja or Exdeath instead of Alphinaud here, especially since he isn't even Legend Dived, but at least his and Raines' USB + BSB still did the job... ed:
Spoiler: Sapphire Weapon
I don't even think I needed Proshellga here TBH...
Sapphire Weapon (D350)
I found wall/protectga/shellga totally useless.
1 healer, especially with instant cast on BSB CMD all that was needed.
Since Seph and Zidane both trance and Shelke is destined to die anyways I didn't need immediately healing especially if I got a double cast on the first or second heal.
Shelke: 1 entrust and death to you
Ruby weapon was painful. None of my wind/dark members are fully LD, except for Raines but even him couldn't do it.
So I went for wind team cuz at least I have a Chain there. I brought Zidane, Yuffie (14 hones of Raging Storm total, plus her dualcasts), Zack and Selphie.
In the end I was out of hones and struggling to survive and push the remaining HP of the boss with only Zidane's BSB commands.
One medal lost for actions and damage taken.
The only one I completed first try. Simple ice team.
Always seem to peter out at the end here...
Ultima Weapon D350
Ugh... So I did all of these, including the D350
The only one I didn't master was Sapphire, losing 2 medals on damage taken and 1 medal on actions
All of them required resistance accessories and magicite passives (only have 3*s, but it was enough)
Emerald: Alphy (Summons+Deployment Tactics), Terra (USB+ASB), 2 healers (Vanille BSB and Rosa USB) and Mog BSB
Diamond: Alphy (Summons+DT), Vanille BSB, Mog BSB, Raines BSB, Meia BSB
Ruby: Alphy BSB (and DT at the end), Fujin BSB, Mog BSB, Larsa BSB
Sapphire: Ramza (BSB2), Vanille BSB, Y's BSB, Ignus CSB+BSB, Butz USB+EBSB
Ultima: Vaan BSB, Shelke BSB, Ramza BSB2, Larsa BSB, Cloud USB+OSB (omega d)
Championed all. I guess the only one I will leave undefeated is Nemesis ??? from the raid. Just can't find the right team for it.
As for Zeromus EG, here's hoping it won't be as bad.
I guess I'll have to dive Noel or Lion some time because I always end up using them on bosses like Ultima Weapon who resists all elements. They're my main non-elemental DPS team with Bursts with debuffs.
First weapon down: go breaks+non elemental damage!

Back to mote farming
I am so darn frustrated with Ultima Weapon. I've been banging my head against him for 3 days and although I've beat him with 4-5 different party configs, I can't master him...I keep losing 2 medals for damage.
Most recent attempt looked like this:
LD Squall BSB2 for DPS
Curilla USB for Radiant Shield (also handled Shellga and Dispel)
LD Setzer BSB and USB for massive breaks
Iris BSB for Astra and stoneskin (also dancing and LMR for w-cast)
Relm BSB for Last Stand (also Protectga)
Even with Setzer stacking debuffs (USB is pentabreak and chase attacks randomly break stats, BSB debuffs ATK/MAG and then his commands are ATK/DEF and MAG/RES, and LM2 randomly triggers and breaks ATK/MAG/MND), I still lost two medals for damage, which tells me I'm just not doing damage fast enough.
However, when I focused on DPS (OK pUSB, Cloud USB1/BSB2, Squall BSB2), I still ended up with the same result.
Pretty much every video or strategy I've watched for this involves a key relic I don't have. I don't have Faris' USB, I don't have Ramza or Relm's USB's, I don't have Aeris' USB's.
One person said they mastered with a dancer, 2 healers, Radiant Shield and one DPS. I pretty much duplicated that although I had Iris dancing and healing so I could put in OK for phys damage boost and Hastega. So how come they mastered with that but I ended up losing 2 medals for damage even with higher DPS damage?
I would ask for advice but I know that's pretty tough to give without knowing all of a person's relics and which characters are dived. But if anyone else would care to share their mastery setup, I would appreciate some more options to mull through! Inspire me!
Never mind! I did some more research tonight and decided to go with an unorthodox strategy. I was reading an old Gamefaqs thread about Setzer vs Vaan, and someone suggested that you could bring both. Hmm...take out Squall and use both?
LD Setzer - BSB/USB, PBD, FB
Vaan - BSB, R2 Mug Bloodlust and R2 Dervish just to get started
LD OK - pUSB, wrath/entrust
Curilla - USB for radiant shield, Shellga, Dispel
Iris - BSB, both 5* dances
Main Magicite was Earth Guardian to help mitigate Lightning damage
Between the dances, Vaan BSB, and Setzer's 11 billion different debuffs, his damage was minimal most of the fight. I tried to time Iris's BSB for just before he died, and I mistimed it, so I ended up losing 3/5 party members. But that only cost me one star, and I lost one star for actions taken...no stars lost for damage taken this time!
Phew! Not only did I finally master him, but I even did it with more it less my own strategy. I don't think I've seen anyone on here or on Reddit using this particular combo.
