I literally can't beat Timewyrm. I've tried so many times and it all ends in disaster. Everyone is level 99, we enter the battle pepped up, we also have about 3 pep pops, 4 elfin elixirs, but man nothing helps here. Typically the first phase we finish while using invcibility with the Yggdragon pep but after that phase 2 typically wipes out a lot of party members so I use kerplunk and revive all of them. We struggle through phase 2 and its pretty much a phase where we heal more than attack....

Then... we finally reach the final phase with both the tail and the head but this is where its impossible. We are pretty much out of everything at this point, out party members get killed so fast from almost every move they make, its insane!

What do I do guys?
When can avatars be visible on Gamefaqs? I've been here for like ten years :/

Well if we're video sharing I'll post my contribution. I did it in the same number of turns but I'd like to say it was a tidier more simplified job that shows a bit more, though respect to OhRichard for posting so early. I did base my run on that performance, just a few little alterations like proper status gear and going full out with pep pops:

Current world record for beating this superboss. Requires ALOT of seed grinding and RNG luck.

I wonder if it would be easier in 2D mode

On their first turn they seem to seperate, but in 2D mode Pep Powers take priority over any action

Can be used to get a quick Mighty Magic Burst

Won't work as you can't do 15000 damage with Victimiser on 2D. Victimiser only works on the first hit in that mode.

But I also heard how the strength limits work is different, that in 3D or 2D you can surpass 999 strength with seeds?

@behindtheword mentioned it but I can't find the post

- Go to First Forest Whale Way Station
- Have Erik in party
- Go to Hooper enemies
- Farm stealing Devilry Drinker Shields
- Have Cobbestone fixed
- Go to Cobblestone and buy as many Pep Pops (Everyone in your main party should have 4-5, and a stupid amount of Elfin Elixir)as possible. Make sure that your 4 main party for the battle has atleast 4 pep pops
- Go to Octagonia, and play slots until you can get a good chunk of Elfin Elixirs for everyone to carry
- Use Hendrik, Hero, Serena, Veronica
- Reset the game until the game let's you start first. Use a pep pop
- Next character does Yggdragon Blessing
- Heal amidst invincibility as Hero
- Once you get to Serena or Veronica do Pepped Skills version of Magic Burst
- Wait until the blessing has one turn left and then use a pep pop
- Elfin Elixir Serena and Veronica with any character in the party (Including themselves)

Rinse and repeat. You will be invincible and dishing out over 4000 damage to the tail and over 2000 to the head usually (Due to the heads mist). If you somehow run out, have Hendrik use Forbearance, Veronica Magic Burst, Serena heal, and Hero Elfin Elixir Veronica

This should get you to the third phase with ease. If you run out of supplies or your main party dies, your 2nd party should be able to finish it by regular play, and the head should at the very least be dead already with the tail about to die. I beat the head this way and the tail one final attack from dying. I finished the tail off with a Crushed Ice from Jade with a Heavenly Talon equipped.

Why not go into battle with everyone already pepped up?
