    I had to swap out Guy for Firion. Then upon closer inspection, then I'd only realize that Firion had both BSB and OSB in hand! With access to 6* Knight now, he's decent in this torment.

    Team setup:
    • Gordon BSB+SSB
    • Emperor USB1
    • Minwu SSB
    • LD Maria USB
    • Firion OSB+BSB
    • RW: Dr Mog Realm Chain
    • Main Magicite: Lakshmi (no inheritance)
    • Sub Magicite: Madeen (2x Magic Boon), Hecatoncheir (Healing Boon, Mind Boon), Famfrit (B.Ward, Health Boon), Phoenix (B.Ward, S.Ward),

    D???

    Having an ATK/MAG break here is crucial.
    Luckily for me I pulled Emperor USB2 from the realm relic draw (II) and already had his trance LMR.



    Maria, Emperor and Guy all had native FFII Earth weapons and armors.
    Firion had +Ice armor and +holy sword.
    All full dive.

    Firion: bUSB
    Maria: USB, LMR
    Emperor: USB2, Trance LMR
    Guy: USB, BSB and LMR
    Minwu: SSB

    Sbs used: Firion's usb1, Maria's usb, lmr and aosb, Minwu's ssb, Emperor's usb2, Guy's usb and lmr.

    Minwu's ssb has really aged well *-*

    My same exact setup except I don't have Maria AOSB.
    Need that AOSB to get the sub 30...

    Last Torment sub-30 done. Finally. Had to use Zidane/Ignis/Faris to off-realm this.

    Congrats!
    I still have this one and Type0 to do.
    I have not tried off-realming yet.
    I might have to try that.

    Thanks! The Zidane combo is pretty good, but I really needed a LOT of tries to have enough DC to clear it.

    The key SBs you’ll need would be Zidane’s AASB/USB2/Glint, Faris CSB/Imperil SB, Ignis BSB.

    Other AASBs might be stronger than Zidane’s, but he is pretty much the best choice for off realming, with his trance LM2, self-healing with Storm Assault, and dualcast (albeit via LMR).

    My main problem with sub30ing this boss is that the way I was dealing damage, his thresholds were always pushed in a way he do do a big buff on himself and then casts Incubus Starfall, which instantly obliterates anyone without Guts (my case).

    So the key was fitting Emperor there with his USB2 which breaks ATK & MAG and still deals some damage/helps with chain building.

    So that's it. Took me the whole day but... Success

    Screenshot_20191006-212945_FFRK.jpg

    Gordon: Entruster
    Maria: USB, enearth LMR
    Minwu: AOSB, USB (the healing one)
    Firion: AOSB, USB 3 (? I don't know... not the bUSB but not his first one also), AASB
    Emperor: USB2
