Dig, dig, dig deeper into the mine and then..
A wild Zodiark appeared!
Let's conquer the 13th esper!
Yeeaaaah sub30 on D280 is pretty impossible for me right now...
I barely managed to Sub-30 the first dungeon thanks to that idiotic paling mechanic. Haven't attempted anything else yet, and I'm not in the mood anyway.
R4 Vortex though (I refuse to call it Voltech )
Sub 30 D280
Ashe glint & aosb (FLD)
Vaan bsb with lmr
D??? 51% Mastered
Vaan's bsb, Basch's lmr, Ashe's bsb, Vayne's usb and Larsa's bsb/proshellga ssb.
I got lucky and 100 gemmed Basch USB. As great as it is the best I have done so far is 70%
This one is hard. This Sunday I think I will redo some of my offensive magicites in favor of Spell/Blade ward.
Not having a last stand hurts here.
Current Team setup:
Ashe BSB/OSB Full dive
Larsa BSB Full dive
Vayne USB/SSB Full dive
Oh man. I need to pull for Ashe stuff one day.
She's my only powerhouse in this realm. And if I can get Vayne stuff it will be nice too.
I have Basch enholy lmr and his USB but he lacks dc
84%. Keeps me on track to get all the abilities, so not sweating on beating him (or Gilgamesh) for now. Feels easier compared to Gilgamesh.
Best I have managed is 86%
Once you get to the last phase the damage is simply overwhelming.
Even at completely full health, the piercing AOE dark move kills both Ashe and Vayne, who are my best DPS. The very next move deals 35% max HP. (It's either 35% or 50%, I have read both here and here. This is pretty much where I get wiped.
If I could survive that crap I easily have the DPS to do this. Tomorrow I should have the resources needed to create a firemane with another spell ward added on. Perhaps with the lvl 15 resistance ward and 2 spell wards i might be able to
survive if I get lucky and time my heal right.
Ashe: BSB/OSB [Full Dive]
Balthier: USB / LMR [Full Dive]
Larsa: BSB [Full Dive]
Vayne: USB [Full Dive]
I did it! It was not pretty or fast, but it's done.
I had to swap out Balthier for Vaan because without the stacking magic breaks, I could not survive.
Gave Larsa full break.
Used Evrae as main magicite to lower dark elemental power.
2 spell wards, 2 Health boons.
This by far was harder than the previous 2 neo torments.
Until we get 5* magicites I think stacking breakdowns is the only way to survive for now.
@Jamie so what magicites did you bring? did you use one magicite with 2 spell wards, one with 2 health boons and one with 2 lvl 10 dampen dark?
These magicites are definitely not ideal, but they did the job. I actually create the firemane just for this fight.
All my magicites are 100% inherited.
I just now realized I could have switched out marilis for something different, like another Evrae.
I had that in there before I switched out Balthier.
I have every intention of doing it again to make a video.
Not as good as my first run but I was able to do it a 2nd time for a video (after many many attempts).
Well, the recent Golden Festival granted me more options to attempt D280 sub30. Unfortunately, Fran is a tad too slow for initial setup; hence swapped out for OK with LMR. Also, Penelo USB was nice and all, but I needed more DPS; hence Gabranth USB steps up to prove it's worth. And proven itself it did. Killing blow by 2nd IC Vaan BSB.
LD Ashe AOSB+Glint
OK LMR as battery
LD Larsa BSB
Main Magicite: L99 Famfrit
Getting Ashe USB has allowed me to lower my time by 21 seconds!
Took so many tries to get around Paling and Magick Barrier. LD for Basch and Penelo helped a lot too.
D??? Sub 30 #12
If I had Vayne USB, maybe I could sub30 it.
I know I can sub40, just need to time things better
