It's actually super important to do that fight now before the Ward nerf, cause... yeah. He's bout to start hitting for 9999 damage instead of "just" 8799 damage

Ok, I was super tired and didn't want to post last night, but we gottem!

https://i.imgtc.com/etXPRMC.jpg

At first I had OK in slow l slot 4, but then realized I wanted him to not die cause he's doing way more damage than CoD

-_-

Anyway, SBs were

Desch- USB, dive
Luneth- LMR2, USB, AOSB, dive
OK- LMR, mUSB, USB3, dive
CoD- BSB, BSB2, dive
Arc- LMR, USB, bUSB, dive

Fun fact, if you cast Curada after casting Arc's USB, he'll still rank chase the boss while healing an ally. Using him as a hybrid is actually what got me this kill.

@Neo_Zekele Grats! Which Luneth USB did you go with? HQC I assume? And that's a neat trick with Arc.

@sarothias @ffrkowaway

Thanks guys :)

And yeah, I went with Luenth's HQC USB. His USB2 was fine, and definitely built the chain more, but it pushed the boss faster which meant less time to entrust bars to arc for non stop bUSB in the last phase

Okies @ffrkowaway or @Neo_Zekele since you guys did this relatively recently, maybe one of you could help me understand something? Curious wtf I am not getting here.

Started playing this one a little bit more as it is my next goal. Best time so far is 35.xx seconds. My biggest trouble is start up time being so slow as I hold off on OK using his pUSB until Luneth lands from Sky High (avoiding stone gaze). I always launch the jump between 0.98 and 1.01 seconds on the clock.
He always lands 3.5 seconds later, thus at 4.48 - 4.51 seconds. Then I launch pUSB from OK and go on.

Proof:

I happened to watch this video earlier today of someones sub 30:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=158DAVfyEzI

His Luneth jumps at 0.94 and lands at 2.80

I am not understanding the time discrepancy? Were your guys Luneth startup fast like that? I didn't even watch the whole video. Just the beginning. My only real difference would be using CoD w/ USB over Ingus but otherwise his startup is pretty much what I have been doing except several seconds quicker.

Done with this today anyway and will get back to it tomorrow or Tuesday

It's probably something completely stupid that isn't clicking with me.

@sarothias The video was recorded before the "fix" to airtime. Luneth's startup time is horrible. Thanks to mUSB my mages get their third actions in before Luneth I think.

Thank you! I completely forgot all about the airtime thing ugh lol. Yeah, makes sense why your mages get so much turns in before him ><

Wracking my brain for awhile over this and that never would have clicked with me.

Yay wife and took my daughter to visit the inlaws. Told me I was welcome to stay and have a little alone time :D

What do I do? Hope back in here lol. Worth it though as got it. Took a few more tries, swapping out RMs and figuring the turn order. Twice got a kill at 31-32 seconds with the only reason they weren't subs was because Death killed off OK in the middle of using his AOSB lol. On this attempt it was the next move and about to go off.

Refia: R4 Ironfist Fire/5 Fires Within - USB - LMR1/LM2 - Ace Striker - 40% Fire
Luneth: R4 Cyclone Bolt/R4 Sky High - USB1/AOSB - LMR/LM2 - Battleforged - 40% Wind
CoD: R5 DZ/R3 Shellga - BSB2/USB1 - LMR - Mako Might - 20% Dark
OK: R5 Chain Firaja/R4 Entrust (unused) - USB1/USB2/AOSB - 40% Fire
Arc: R4 Curada/R5 Holy - USB2 - LMR1/LM2 - Gathering Storm

Moderate Fire/Earth on everyone except CoD with Major Earth. Cod also had an armor with Minor Dark resist.

Main Magicite:
Belias (+15 Empower FIre, +15 ATK Boon)

Sub Magicites:
Siren (+5 Spell Ward), Typhon (+20 ATK Boon, +15 Empower Wind), Madeen (2x + 20 MAG), Famfrit (+10 Dampen Fire, +8 Spell Ward)

Arc with Gathering handled both chains and summoning Belias. Mostly Curada's into his firs bar to use BUSB around 17ish seconds, then one holy, CMD1, then Curada or Holy depending to another bar. At that point I had him just sit a couple of seconds to reuse his BUSB if needed during P4.

OK does pUSB when Luneth lands around 4.48, Chain Firajas into mUSB then Chain Firaja's into AOSB. It did about 97k x 3 under his and CoDs buffs.

Refia IF into USB then IF until around 26-27 seconds and reused her USB once more at the end. Each hit capped.

Luneth SK, CB, SH once or twice into USB, then CB/SK combo until about 24 seconds then used AOSB (did about 7k per hit with crits capping). After that used his USB1 once again. Each hit capped IIRC

Cod started with USB, then Shellga then DZ into BSB2. DZ until end or death.

9 sub 30ed now and I have the tools for a couple more. Take a break for couple days then try another. Maaaaybe Type-0 next.
