Found a video on Nico Nico showing a trick to easily beat Omega Weapon. Haven't tried it myself yet but seems legit. As far as I can tell the only thing you need to do is:
- Junction strong magic to speed and strength
- Keep cursor on memory, put item at top of command list on one character
- Gather 100 potions
Have that one character use a potion on Omega Weapon every turn. That prevents him from attacking. The other 2 characters can attack freely.
It seems the timing of when you use the potion might be important.

This... Or Meteor Wing Rinoa with 255 mgc, 150+ SPD, Auto Haste and having spr 0 status in effect. Omega will find it hard to even squeeze a move in.

Just get Selphie to The End Omega Weapon and is over in seconds.

Anyway, I like to fight Omega Weapon head on.

Do you find it particularly rare? I usually see it every 20-30 refreshes, and those don't take very long at all.

The real issue is going there it is woops pressed the button there it is woops there it is woops

I've seen the end pop up a few times. I could be wrong, but I believe it gets more rare to see it the higher you level up.

I've only ever seen Rapture. Never had The End show up.

I generally don't use Selphie all that much though.
