Just saw a topic on reddit where someone suggested:

Shelke - Wrath/Entrust
Ramza - Wrath/Entrust
Ayame - Lifesiphon/Hailstorm (BSB)
Squall - BSB2 & OSB
Raijin - SSB spam

Basically Shelke and Ramza feed bars to Raijin, who uses his SSB after every Tiamat attack. Ayame and Squall just keep instant actioning ice attacks until Tiamat hits the floor. Looks like the only thing that can ruin it is Squall getting hit with the Absorb Strength.

I have all those pieces, so I'm going to try it when I get a keystone tomorrow. Will report back then. I am going to throw Darkmare in instead of the random 5th Magicite suggested since everyone will be sitting at super low HP at all times.
Tough.... Don't blame us. Blame yourself or God.

This is actually what I have been trying lately, but replace Ayame with Bartz LD + LMR. It's not exactly a guaranteed clear, actually, I have yet to beat it. While Rajin SSB is great, I almost always get absorb strength to Squal or Bartz.

Also, I have 0 +ice gear so if you do have that you could probably clear alright. For me it's generally get her to ~10% and die at 35/40s

Is Tiamt possible without a CSB/OSB?

I'd rather not HAVE to pick XI in the present draw, but I guess I might have to?

Reks BSB
Squall BSB2
Celes BSB2
Sora USB

Rinoa BSB2
Serah BSB

...are all my possible Ice breaks that could be helpful. Plenty of Buffs/Heals to fit all setups

I will pick Ayame's stuff if I truly have to though
Yep, I live in Idaho.

I don't see how Ayame is going to do anything Sora and Squall can't do already... OSB aren't going to out DPS Squall BSB2 with Gathering Storm and ice boost gear...
I have been clearing consistently with no CSB/OSB. Not a sub30 team, but sub60:

Squall - BSB2
OK - wrath/entrust, lmr + BSB
Minfilia - wrath/entrust + SSB
Noel - lifesiphon + USB
Relm - USB

Noel works to stack ice imperil, although I do wonder if I could do this faster with someone else.

The key is Relm spamming her USB, and Minfilia keeps Last Stand up as a safety net.

Hmm good point, I guess my main concern is the fire attack and keeping up the damage. so I suppose Squall, Sora, 2 healers and OK pUSB might be good enough.

Last 4* I haven't beat. Tried just now and got destroyed at 38s and Tiamat still half HP. My current DPS just can't do it.

Squall, 40% Ice Boost & GathStorm RM
OSB 33000
AOSB 3 x 21000

Bartz, 4*+++ Trident & 40% Spellblade RM
Snowspell 4 x 3700 (1900 if Absorbed Strength)

Maybe I should spend Gem to get that Squall BSB2.
Friendly reminder that Real Madrid is still the official best club in the world.

Been a while since I thought about tackling this fight. Probably gonna have to do some dives for it.
Tentative teams are:

Magic
Lulu USB (& BSB) - Sudden Freeze, Abyssal Shard
Rinoa CSB (& BSB1) - Valigarmanda, Chain Blizzaga
OK mUSB (& BSB) - Chain Blizzaga, Entrust
Shelke - Wrath, Entrust
Eiko (or Rosa) Curada, Shell?

or

Hybrid
Sora USB (& Ice Glint) - SSS, SSS
Lulu USB - SF, AS
Rinoa CSB - Vali, CB
OK BSB - CB, Entrust
Eiko (or Rosa) Curada, Shell?

I figure I'll probably dive OK. Willing to dive Lulu or Sora as well, just not sure which character has more promise in the long run. Sora seems easier to use...

Any thoughts? ( @ffrkowaway I believe you had a similar build to this)
