Haagen: "Feel my fury!!!"
Weimar: "Come back here!"
Steiner: "Princess, I cannot allow you to go! Seize them at once!"

This one seems like it might be a little tougher than the previous two? Well, then again, a lot of you have AASBs now.

This will probably be Saturday March 9, when the Hojo multiplayer expires. I say "probably" because for some odd reason, the image for this one wasn't actually translated alongside the other events. That's quite odd, but I'm not really sure if it means anything.

If you need (or want) any help with the Knights of Pluto, feel free to use m0rningstar's Multiplayer Raid Assistance Topic once it's available.

- General strategy:
Wall+Protectga+Shellga, AoE ATK debuffs, good healers, Last Stand, and Sap resists. Seriously, you definitely want Last Stand and Sap resists.

These enemies hit relatively hard and quite frequently. And as usual, they're fairly bulky as well... Not as bad as some earlier D350s, but collectively they still have a fair bit of HP. Chains and imperils can help to cut them down.

Note Weimar's and Hagaar's Power Breaks and Magic Breaks. These debuffs are weak, only single-target, and used pretty randomly. But, they have a habit of overwriting pure ATK buffs and MAG buffs, including those attached to nearly all gen2 CSBs.

Mage teams are normally slightly preferred because magic has an easier time capping on bulky enemies, and because the enemies' Magic Breaks are somewhat less effective than their Power Breaks. Physical teams are perfectly capable, however, especially now that a few physical AASBs are in play. Just be sure to support them properly.


- About Infernal Doomsday Sword:
The big outlier here is Steiner's scripted Doomsday Swords, used in his weaker phases. This attack can easily do 10000-20000+ AoE damage to your party. Curiously, it will do extremely high damage to all enemy targets as well, typically 99999 damage unless you've stacked a lot of debuffs.

That's an interesting gimmick, but it's far too risky to try to use it against the enemies. Instead, focus on defeating Weimar and Haagen first, before Steiner dips into his weak phase, because you don't want those two on the field once Steiner starts throwing overstrike AoEs around. Granted, you could set things up so that Steiner finishes Weimar and/or Haagen off with his first Doomsday Sword when he hits 71% HP. But, it's better to focus on eliminating them early anyway, simply to reduce the incoming damage.

Once Steiner's alone, then this becomes fairly easy. Just be sure you keep the Last Stands and healing going, and be careful once he dips below 41% HP: He'll use Doomsday Sword once more, and then again every 3 turns after.

Infernal Bumpja for tonight. Also, at least until the appropriate topic shows up, anyone want to work on a setup to take on the battle?
Don't read my sig. You're just wasting your time.
