    Also this torment will last until 10/10, so we can delay it until fest dungeons are over.

    Easier than expected, though I'd be insane to go for 3-man CM in my current state. Maybe after Banner 4, hopefully getting Ayame and Aphmau's BSBs... =/

    RW: Rikku USB.

    The Dark Dragon having only 10% vulnerability to Ice instead of 50% on JS sounds intimidating, but Rinoa CSB + Shantotto and Palom BSBs still pretty much made short work of it.

    3-Man Synergy D300.
    Found this to be much much easier than the 5 man D200 which I barely pulled off.

    Since this will be around a while, I'll wait until post-orb fest to do it. I'm worried about getting enough chips to clear the roulette board.

    You all waiting for the fest to be over to do this... And here I am having to spend 300 stamina total to master all 3 challenges...
    -_-'

    D200 CM: Mastered.
    D255: Expert because I was so dumb that I forgot to break Seeker's MAG. Running again...
    D300 3-man CM: Expert, two units died. Running... Again :(

    Yea well, we are into day 4 (out of 10) and I still need 77.000 chips (out of 103.000) to clear all prizes. So I am behind enough that cannot spare stamina :S

    Took me a bunch of tries but I finished D300 CM. Had to hone Omega Strike and do some record sphere leveling for some of the team.

    Focused on Mike Wazowski first with abilities and saved most of my soul breaks until he was dead.

    Magicite was Enkidu and then Ice boosting.

    Soul Breaks used:
    Ayame: BSB
    Prishe: BSB, Regen/Last Stand SSB once as a backup plan
    Shantotto: BSB
    Rikku: USB
    Larsa: BSB for Astra and insta-heals

    Had to keep restarting, I got the dragon down to practically one hit left a bunch of times and he wiped me. Prishe's SSB helped a bit with that.

    You know what duck this boss. Stone was a ducking issue. Felt stone was hitting every single time. They were stone even through affliction break and resists. The battle it self wasn't hard, its the aoe sleep and stone catching me. But he I manage to win. Got my spirits motes 5 and fully dived my ysh.
    My was ramza, refia, squall, celes, ysh. Rw eiku usb.
    Man I honestly dislike these two because of status attacks. Let's not for aiery guard. Refia vs air guard booooooo.
    My approach was to but the eye man first, then focus the
    Dragon. Every time I would go dragon first d Dragon would me.
    Squall bsb works well. Refia bsb is very powerful wish she fully dived. Ramza was afflictio. Breaking. Celes did dual duties fighting both.
    Mastery down. Good luck everyone.

    Ayame (80): Hailstorm R4, Blazing Twinstrike R2, Truthseeker
    Aphmau (99): Shellga R3, Ultra Cure R4, Mako Might, BSB
    Shantotto (99): Chain Firaga R4, Meteor R3, Blood of Espers, CSB
    Prishe (99): LS R5, Lifebane R2, Ace Striker, BSB
    Curilla (80): PBD R4, MBD R4, Into the Fray
    Magicite: Enkidu, RW: Wall
    Took a couple of tries because they can start off with back to back aoe, as well as landing nasty status effects.

    D250 was a faceroll with mage A-team (had Larsa and Tyro for status blink)

    D300 CM will come later (not enough stamina, also: yay for daily missions)

    Now I start jealous who got squall bsb2 or ayame bsb physical ice dps, if I have either one of them farming this torment should be much more easier or cm3 more easier.
    This D300 I only clear with CM1 Aphmau.

    2 astra with me, no way I'll get any negative status.

    Well, I was able to do this torment thanks to my pull on banner 4 and to the gem pull. I wonder if we'll ever see any FFXI content again xD

    D200 CM

    Just posting to give hope to anyone else who, like me, doesn't have anything for Lion or Ayame (aside from her generic Hastega). Fight on, little ponies!

    SBs
    Shantotto: Primordial Elements
    Curilla: BSB
    Prishe: default (when I ran out of Tempo Flurries...)
    Ayame: Hastega SSB
    Aphmau: BSB
    RW: Wall
    Magicite: Unicorn

    Note that you can only slow the dragon (I think).

    But now that I've beaten all available CMs except for the daily/weekly stuff...what am I gonna do besides farm these lame magicites? :Fusoya:

    Both enemies are vulnerable to slow :)

    Ah, thanks! I had unfortunately used several TF hones in the rounds before, so I didn't have quite enough for both enemies and I preferred to make sure to keep the Dragon down (his attacks are way more damaging).

    Whew. In case you couldn't see my rant, the D200CM is probably the most terribly designed boss fight in recent memory, and arguably the history of this game. Worse than OG NORG of "undispellable buffs and massive HP" fame. Worse than

    Sure, you've got your Nemesises and Omegas. But Jesus Christ, at least you had more than one option for most of the relics. This fight basically boils down to "Don't get hit by Seeker's nukes." And that's a 40% chance to happen. Obviously this w ould be much tiolerable if there was a 5-star Support or Dancer in the realm. There is, well, not. In fact, the only stacking MAG debuff in all of FFXI is Lion's USB. So overall, you're dependent on a slightly-less-than-half event not occurring for an entire fight, and that's not even accounting for status RNG - and we all know how unfriendly resistance access is to noobs.

    And unlike both, XI is the most limited realm in the game. Normally, you can mitigate the RNG with Affliction Break and magic with Full Break. Here, you cannot. Well, unless you pulled on one banner and got it. Or you lucked into it. And if you want to draw it next, good luck, because there's no FFXI event in sight. I can't even begin to explain how problematic this is.

    When you have to S/L for god RNG to win a fight, that's unacceptably bad design. It's not fun. It's not challenging. It's as intuitive as pressing "Relic Draw 11x" on the draw screen, and that's terrible.

    Fuck this. I have too much going on IRL to save scum for 7 hours.

    You're not even fighting the boss here. You're fighting RNG.

    Dr. Mog's advice is so long my eyes glaze over and go "Nope. Going to wait for power creep before doing this."
