I was glancing through the FAQs looking for a challenge to attrmpt, and the "Initial Equipment, No Accessories, No Escape No Physical Attacks No Limit Breaks Command Materia Only" guide caught my eye.

Despite the mile long acronym, the challenge itself seem to be challenging without being frustrating or grind heavy, which is precisely what I was looking for.

However, at last update (13 years ago) it appears that Emerald Weapon wasn't known to be defeatable under these rules. So that leaves me 2 options atm:

1- Ignore Emerald, which bothers me on a level deep down inside me, or

2- Use my own knowledge and team up with you gods to find a way to do it.

Like I said though, it's a 13 year old guide, so for all I know he's been beaten this way a decade ago :/

Tl;Dr- Any ideas on how to approach the EW battle when I do this challenge (likely this weekend)?

Ive done this challenge but never attempted emerald.

I think the main problem is when the eyes open. With the constant attacks and mp draining it'd be too hard to keep up with healing and attacking.

He’s weak to gravity right? Would “Laser” take care of the eyes?

Hmm... not sure.

I'm almost ready to fight him on an unrelated file, I'll be sure to test it.

Emerald is weak to Lightning and takes half damage against Gravity.
