  3. Maximising "Slice & Dice" damage
DingDong001 8 years ago#1
I'm currently trying to farm Fortune Spheres from the Earth Eater (EE), and am using the method involving Tidus' Slice & Dice (SnD) overdrive.

I have Tidus with 255 Strength and Defence, Caladblog and "Loner" overdrive mode. I begin the battle, flee with my other two characters, and knock down EE with SnD.

Then I just wait for it to get up, and repeat. Also, I have deathproof for Megaton Punch.


Is there a way I can make SnD do more damage? With max strength it's only hitting for ~27,000 each hit. I am at full HP every time I use it too.


Thanks! Would love to speed this up a bit!

Cheer x5.
It's like if a kitten suplexed you, you wouldn't even consider your self defense options because you'd still be processing how insane it is... ~manmouse

Cheer x5 and each hit can crit (luck, raise Tidus luck during the process)

Seems like the fight woukd last forever doing it that way. I generally fight him like this.

Use Wakka, Tidus and anyone else. Set all OD modes to victor. Start with SnD. Then attack reels with wakka. Other member uses entrust on Wakka so he has a full OD again. Attack reels again. Then attack once with one of your characters and earth eater is done.

After that I just fight a dingo quick to refill my OD and repeat.

Loner OD Wakka, Attack twice, escape all but Wakka, 3 Defends for OD, Attack Reels, 3 Defends, Attack Reels.

Slice and Dice is only close in speed if your Tidus is always critting, so if you want to do that, use a different method to farm until Tidus has 115 Luck, then switch to SnD Loner spam.

With the right amount of luck you can critic for 50k with slice and dice but since you are farming fortune spheres I suggest you use wakka as his reels hit for 40k each besides this there is no higher damage with the exception of normal attacks which will be countered repeatedly.

I would suggest as above he should die after slice and dice + two attack reels shouldn't need an extra attack for him to go down. I also suggest sleep sprout to be used for the victor od refill as you are going to end up using teleport spheres anyway.

The Celestial Weapon traits don't apply to Overdrive damage. Neither the low HP = low damage nor the Ignore Defense properties apply.

Customizing a sword with Break Damage Limit and Strength +20%/10%/5% would improve your damage, but it probably isn't worth the time.

Str+X% doesn't work on ODs either. Or the weapon's hidden bonus to Crit chance. The only equipment attribute that works on Overdrives is BDL.

The extra attack is only needed when you don't get enough crits with Slice and Dice
