    25 seconds d280. I lack a usb for Yuna, so subbed in eiko.

    Paine USB
    Walks entrust bot
    Tidus BSB2 and ASB
    Jecht BSB - the one with the bubbles helpful managing some of the healing
    Eiko - USB

    I feel like I have good DPS tools for X, but lack of a top healing relic for Yuna and no USB1 for Rikku makes the ??? feel quite out of reach.

    My FFX RS and pulls were never stellar to begin with. Yet, for D280, surprisingly I managed to pull off a full-CM, sub40 without a single character being LD. I recall the only investment I made so far, going into this Torment Dungeon is getting one copy of my 5* Sapphire Shot honed to R3.

    Team setup:
    • Yuna USB1
    • Paine USB1
    • Tidus OSB (Unique Swiftform unused)
    • Wakka USB1
    • Kimahri USB (mblink SSB was unused)
    • Main Magicite: L99 Evrae (inherited max Fast Act)
    • Sub Magicite: Evrae (Health Boon), Kraken, Seraph (Dampen Dark), Gizamaluke (GDM)

    Now big question is what I could do to shave off those last few seconds with minimum investment. Hmm...

    41.29s. Might have gotten the sub-40 if I had refreshed Rikku's USB in time. Rikku's LMR (which I pulled from a last ditch 3x) was the difference maker. Made it easier to get her USB cast in before Yunalesca's second Holy.

    Magic Blink is the main difference maker here though. Dodging Mind Blast and/or Mega Death makes it so much easier to manage. Auron USB1, Kimahri SSB, and of course Yuna's shiny new USB3 are your potential options. I believe Kimahri's SSB is an AA pick.

    Depends on what you'll define as "minimum investment" :)

    But getting Sapphire Bullet would help. So would getting Geosgaeno.

    Is Paine capping on Blastspell Strike? If not, the spellblade/sword damage boost RM might be more reliable.

    Made the following changes:
    • Mind Breakdown for Kimahri
    • LD Paine and Tidus
    • Honed Sapphire Bullet to R3
    Sure enough. Gotten the sub30 for my D280.

    Tinkered around for a while before I finally pulled this off.
    Yuna Bonks Kimahri on the head to get around the first Mind Blast.
    Magic breakdown is very much needed to survive Incubus Ultima.
    Magic Blink helps with the instant death on slot 1 / 5, and helped skip the other Mind Blasts.
    I also found Yuna's SSB to be downright better here than her BSB. It's a shame her CMD 2 is summon and hence cannot be doublecasted otherwise it would be great.

    Team:
    Yuna: USB and SSB (miracle Veil) [doublecast LMR]
    Kimahri: SSB (Fang of Gagazet)
    Tidus: BSB2 and USB [Start with en-water LMR]
    Jecht: USB (Fire) [doublecast monk LMR / Start with en-fire LMR]
    Paine: USB [full dive]

    Tidus AASB made this very manageable. Swapping Auron in for Paine was a good idea I took from someone’s run.

    A couple of thoughts/suggestions:
    - If you are lacking gauge for Tidus to use his AOSB, consider giving Wakka Entrust instead of FB, and MM/DMT. He entrusts to Tidus in first turn, spans Sapphire Shot, then entrusts again at the end.
    - Tidus can then carry a dmg+ RM, or even Ace Striker if you don’t need it and want to fire off SBs earlier.
    - Tidus may not need his enWater LMR if you’re using his USB first/second turn. Giving him Powerchain for his first turn might be useful too.
    - Rikku with MultiBreak and Wakka with FB are redundant?
    - I would give Rikku a Sapphire Shot or another dance, rather than Powerchain.

    Oh, my bad, I posted a wrong screenshot when I was doing some (wrong) adjustments ^^' Rikku had the att/mag dance, not the fb dance ^^' I tried giving wakka entrust and FB to Rikku, but it didn't work :(
    Thanks for your suggestions, I'll see what I can do :)

    In the past, I'd always lamented over my lack of effective FFX relics and tech. Today, my Zanarkand Abes team emerged the Victor over my third Torment D???. At sub40, no less.

    Team setup:
    • Yuna USB1+LMR_dc_WHM
    • LD Paine USB1+LMR1
    • LD Tidus AASB (OSB unused)
    • LD Wakka USB1+BSB1
    • Kimahri USB+SSB
    • Main Magicite: Lakshmi (inherited with Mind Boon & Dampen Dark)
