@sarothias

Thanks!

There's a mistake in my team loadout - I never used Laguna chain in my sub-30, only USB1. I used realm chain twice. And note that Rinoa does her AOSB during the second chain, and caps even at modest hit count. Damn Squall...

Want to revisit this but....

Each mage has enelement

2 guys have ic1 party as phys

Quistis has allegro type sb

Edea has back row qc

Irvine has csb

If enelement and magic means capping fast then my magicite should be fire for irvine with 2 deathgazes and madeens....

Now irvine pretty much a no need to phys so 2 mag lv20 are enough.... 2 speeds

Now i have 4 free slots..... The boss does magic and phys

Thats 1 lv 8 hp, phys ward ready gotten

Since they are on the back row i need res lv20 which hector is already gotten and spell ward on deathgaze

In the end i will need:

4 deathgazes
4 famfrit

Oh my god i have to fight deathgaze again :(

Are Squall BSB2/OSB/LMR, Laguna USB1 and Edea USB1/LMR1 enough DPS?

Also got Selphie USB1 and Quistis USB and Glint for the remaining slots.

Or Rinoa with only her CSB and AOSB?

My FFVIII team is garbage I see now

Pretty much my team - squall bsb2/osb/lmr, laguna usb1/lmr, ultimecia usb/lmr, quistis usb (but no glint), selphie bsb2/glint. I made it to 94% once but haven't gotten close since. I've been holding off on torments while I finish the magicite wheel. Gotta replace unicorn with lakshmi before I come back to it.

Selphie BSB2, Glint - Multi Break, Ultra Cure
Quistis SSB - Protectga, Voltech

You don't necessarily need Selphie at all for Gerogero, if you can bring your own chain and use the heal RW. Really, depending on how many buffs you're bringing, these days you can even get to 100% on D??? Torments with no chain at all.

Not sure how I would be able to pull it off decently though without healing.

Laguna is probably the best off with his Chain, USB1, and LMR
Rinoa has both of her Ice USBs, and her Chain, but no AOSB or her most important LMRs (plus Chain Blizzaja isn't fully honed)
Squall has his BSB2, OSB and AOSB, but nothing else of note
Edea has her Ability Double USB, but nothing else of note, and I don't have the 6* Ice Witch ability crafted, and right now, my next target for creation is Fire Assault.
Quistis I have her USB, but nothing else that synergizes with the above group.

I don't see a road to victory in that set without Selphie.

(Should also mention that I've just barely pushed my way into 5* Ice Magicites, so they aren't going to be of any help either).


See the below team for something you might be able to start from for a no-Selphie run, whenever you're ready. Just trying to save you from burning valuable L3 Lenses on Selphie USB1.

Ditto running Quistis over Selphie. Sub30 with the below:

Rinoa R4 Vortex > R5 Chain Blizzaga | Ice Dmg+, LMR (dualcast), LM2 | USB1 | 20% ice
Edea R3 Chilling Blizzard > R4 Abyssal Shards | Ace Striker, LMR (quickcast) | USB, ASB | 40% ice
Quistis Chain Blizzaga + Wrath | DMT, LMR, LM2 | SSB (haste, party quick magic 3), Glint
Laguna R4 Icy Offering, n/a | MM, LMR, LM2 | CSB | 40% ice
Squall R4 SSS, Lifesiphon | Gathering Storm | USB2 > Glint, ASB (unused) | 40% ice

Poison resist on all, major on Quistis.

Main: Unicorn (+8 Spell Ward)
Subs: Manticore (+15 Empower Ice, +8 Health Boon)
Famfrit (+8 Blade Ward, +10 Fast Act)
Manticore (+15 Empower Ice, +10 Deadly Strikes)
Quetzalcoatl (2x +20 Magic Boon)

Rinoa: Vortex into USB1, Chain Blizzaga until the end, refresh USB under quickcast
Edea: 2 Chilling Blizzard into USB, Chilling Blizzard ability double, Abyssal Shards into ASB
Quistis: SSB, Wrath, Chain Blizzaga, Glint, Unicorn, then toggle RW, DPS and Wrath to keep Glint up
Laguna: CSB, Icy Offering. Repeat right around 14s-15s
Squall: Lifesiphon until chain, SSS into USB2. I tried to squeeze his Glint in, but ended up killing him with the 7 hit USB chase before using his ASB
