Madeen's the easier of the two though and most most importantly the slower in savage mode. Lakshmi also has more damage reduction in savage mode (and her savage is based on health, not turns like the other magicite) and she also removes haste, and status effects if you dawdle too long.

But like I said before, Sice just an option, I'm probably going to Tyro or OK for my boostga when I fight her.

is Madeen really easier? i heard Lakshimi would be doable with no holy dampen, but not Madeen (i really really don't want to fight Hades).

I have no holy dampen and I can beat Madeen just fine, you just have to watch out for the Savage Terra Homing that does 8000+ in the third phase.

8000 would be a complete party wipe for me

I get around that with Elara's BSB with a last stand. Madeen's pretty much just a holy mixture of Belias/King Behemoth except you need to dispel her instead of attack breakdown.

Besides 1 8000 attack is a lot better than dealing with 100% auto-hit sleep/confuse.

i don't have Elarra's BSB. i guess i could use Vanille or maybe even Relm?

though against Lakshimi i have Golbez chain + Ignis BSB on Seph with USB2 + LMR. as good as my dark magic DPS is, i don't think it's quite as good as that.

If you have Vanille USB2 that would probably work, since it also has a holy damage reduction.

One thing that makes Madeen easier is that you can take your time with her for the most part (unless you're dooming yourself) I beat her with a semi-poverty team of Seymour (USB) Raines (BSB(also have his OSB but it's not really worth breaking savage mode IMO) Garland (Chain) OK, and Elara.

I'm just saying "not being able to sub 30" does not preclude you from using a party doom soul break you just need to use it intelligently
No problem!

Lakshmi isn't a boss you want to stall though, the longer you stay in a phase the more status effects, haste removals and nul-darks you have to deal with. The best defense against her is a strong offense in all honesty (or Tyro USB1 spam)

I just feel like I'm that weird spot where I may have the tools to kill her quick (I have Cloud and Riku's USBs and AOSBs) but Garland's weaker chain + no dualcast LM and no awakenings is probably going to hold me back from killing her before the doom timer kills everyone, which is probably why I'm leaning towards Tyro as the support.

I'm not sure I consider it stalling per se as much as condensing your damage. You play the fight normally but just don't party doom until you've built a bit of bar with everyone and gotten start of fight buffing out of the way so you get a bit of jump start on the pace of your damage flow. Like, you can fire the party doom at about 10s in and you're now playing with a sub 40 instead of a sub 30. To put it in perspective I only ever see Madeen's aoe Dispel on turn 11 of her first phase if I screwed up on timings and got really unlucky with imperils/dual casts, and that's casting CoD's doom break at more like 15s than 10s and considering that Madeen has a 0.01s attack so it's basically hitting at turn 10 thinking in terms of Lakshmi. Now Lakshmi you basically want to get out before turn 9 rather than 10, but yeah, it really shouldn't be impossible to do that even showing a little restraint on your party doom. Particularly since she helps you and puts doom on two of your guys for you.

You have multiple slots so in theory you can potentially have an acceptable alternative move to use before you need to exploit having doom. Like... put damage RMs on Cloud and Riku, launch the aoe doom + Garland Chain just before they fire off their USBs, and it'd probably be workable. *Shrug
