  3. Collection of exact damage BT tips at Galaxy lvl 255

As far as I know, there doesn't really seem to be a centralized place with tips for all of the exact damage BTs. Well, I've finally gotten all of them, and here I'll give a listing for all the remotely difficult ones, which are for Galaxy at lvl 255 (not sure if difficulty changes anything, since I haven't played the other difficulties yet myself). Unless otherwise noted, I've gotten all of these from the Japanese SO4 wiki at http://www28.atwiki.jp/star_ocean4/. I also have commentary on the setups I used when the wiki didn't specify how to get a specific ATK, or when something didn't quite work as stated.

Generally speaking, if for whatever reason you're hovering around a specific value, and you just can't seem to hit the exact number, try popping an Attack Seed or two. My guess is that depending on the damage formula, it may be that certain values are impossible to obtain for a given ATK, due to rounding, or might have a very low chance of occurring.

Of course, there are existing solutions and strategies on this and the 360 board, and they may be more helpful to you than some of these. I know people also use fliptout's calculator http://www.ffmaps.com/flipt/so4exact.exe, but I've never needed to, given the wealth of reliable info from the wiki.

Also, there's always the Self-Destructor 3000 method. The SD3K is dependent on ATK and HP and has a much lower damage variance, which can make obtaining some of the higher damage BTs easier, since your actual damage can vary quite a bit when just attacking. However, I only used this method once, for Edge's 55555 BT, which is further below.

The idea behind making the SD3K work is to stay at a fixed HP, and use an SD3K several times at a given ATK value (say, high ATK), and note the damage dealt. Then you would try another ATK value at the same HP (say, low ATK), and record the damage dealt again. Since your HP hasn't changed, (desired BT damage)/(actual damage dealt / current ATK) = your target ATK to obtain. Trying at high and low ATKs is just to help you narrow down your target ATK value.



I've marked the ones I've personally done or verified, so I can't necessarily vouch for the ones that I didn't need to do. Anyways, onto the tips:


Edge:
----------
55 exact
...I dunno, I'd say you're almost guaranteed to get this in the early game.


555 exact
Scumbag Slayer
Barachiel Jewel
BEAT:S Rank 20
= 990 ATK
Rising Blade lvl 10 (the 3rd and 4th hits): Tatroi - Albero di Anima
*personally done


5555 exact
Observer's Sword
Temple Guardian Jewel
Astralian Emblem
ATK Boost lvl 10
BEAT:S Rank 20
= 4042 ATK
Cyclone Blade lvl 10: Tatroi - Honeybees, Unicorn Wolves, Kobold Bandits
*personally done


55555 exact
Moonstone Sword
Kokabiel Spawn Jewel
tri-Emblem
ATK Boost lvl 10
BEAT:S Rank 20
= 6520 ATK
Raging Strike lvl 10: Tatroi - Honeybees, Unicorn Wolves, Kobold Bandits

While this method likely does work (you definitely do hit in the correct range), since I wasn't getting it for a while, I decided to try the SD3K method for the first time here. At lvl 255, BEAT:B, and HP Boost, Edge will have 91059 HP. At 91059 HP, you can hit 55555 on the Adephagas on Aeos when you have 4593 ATK. The setup I used to get there:

Moonstone Sword (2860 ATK)
Battle Armor "God of Hellfire" synthed w/ 1 Ashlay Jewel (-922 ATK)
Blue Talisman synthed w/ 3 Ashlay Jewels (231 ATK)
Astralian Symbol synthed w/ 1 Temple Guardian Jewel, and 2 Killer Chelae Jewels (44 ATK)
BEAT:B
= 4593 ATK and 91059 HP

Just keep using SD3Ks on the Adephagas on Aeos - I had to kill 35 of them before I got it, but at least it's relatively quick.

Bacchus:
----------
512 exact
...Well, there wasn't any info on the wiki. Hope you got this somewhere else!


1024 exact
According to the wiki, you need ~6800 ATK. I personally used:

Symbol Cannon "Tempest"
Laser Suit with 539 ATK (synthed w/ 7 Ashlay Jewels, 8 Asura Vajras)
Astralian Emblem
= 6792 ATK
Black Hole Sphere, chain up to 200%: Colosseum (Team) - Space Cowboys

..and got it quite easily.


4096 exact
Unfortunately, the wiki says to try the Colosseum Solo battle with Nue, at 8301 ATK and Black Hole Sphere lvl 1, chained up to 200%...which you might have leveled far beyond already.

So, you could use the 65536 method below, except you'll have to figure out a way to get a total of 4 extra hits per attack (I only had to account for 2 extra hits when I did it), in order to hit down to 4096 damage.


16384 exact
The wiki says you want 8896 ATK, but no details on how to get that, and do:
Long range attack: Cave of the Seven Stars - Crater Peryton

If you're missing the rest of the higher exact damage BTs for Bacchus, you might as well try the next method...


16384 / 32768 / 65536 exact
If you're missing all three of these BTs like I was, you're in luck: if you can get your attack to 9857, along with the ability to deal out 2 extra hits per attack, triggering 65536 will also net you the 32768 and 16384 BTs, because the extra hits always deal half the damage of the preceeding hit.

The wiki lacked any specific information on getting to 9857 ATK, so this is what I did, if you need something to go by:

Laser Weapon synthed with:
+ Imperial Sword as factor weapon: Fire Element, HP damage +35%, and 2 extra hit chances per attack (Fire Paint, Ultimate Bomb, 2 Ashlay Jewels)
+ 14 Infinity Sabers
= 3220 ATK

Laser Suit synthed with:
+ Universal Armor as the factor armor: 4x ATK/INT/DEF/HIT/GRD +5% (4 Hyper Potions)
+ 6 Ashlay Jewels
+ 3 tri-Emblems
= 1062 ATK

Blue Talisman (or most neck accessories will do) synthed with:
+ 1 tri-Emblem
+ 1 Spirit Priest / Dark Soldier / Soul Reaper / Cave Guardian / Armaros Manifest Jewel (any of these will do, just need something with ATK -6)
= 194 atk

tri-Emblum synthed with:
+ 8 tri-emblems
= 1602 atk (a pretty common value when making super tri-Emblums)

BEAT:B
= 9857 ATK
Short range 'direction + attack' spin move: Colosseum (Team) - Gemini Dragons, on the Sister

Granted, you likely won't have all these materials unless you've been doing post-game for a while. I happened to have just enough of everything, and enough clay to not make any skeleton stealing trips. Even after all this setup, it might take a while to hit 65536 - I think it might have taken me 7 battles to get it, but you definitely can get hit it with 9857 ATK + Fire Element + HP damage +35%.


Defeat an enemy in one hit with exact damage
I followed Sox4Lyfe's method here: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/946860-star-ocean-the-last-hope/48743449
The base stats stated for Bacchus aren't quite right if you've never used any seeds, so you don't end up with 588 ATK as stated, but I did this:

Scumbag Slayer
Electroshock Gear "War Deity"
Solo Champion Medal
BEAT:B
= 579 ATK + 4 Attack Seeds = 587 ATK
(OR) + 1 Potent Attack Seeds + 2 Attack Seeds = 588 ATK
Long range physical attack: Lemuris - Man-Eating Tree

Here's also another method I haven't tried: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/939441-star-ocean-the-last-hope-international/58326121

You'll need 3812 ATK with a Fire Element weapon and Berserk lvl 10. Unfortunately, the wiki didn't say how to get this with simple equipment, so again I used what I could with my own synths, which may not be practical for you.

What I had:
Laser Weapon synthed w/ Fire Paint, 2 Blueberries, and 1 Mixed Syrup (900 ATK w/ 2x ATK +2 factors)
Battle Armor "God of Hellfire" synthed w/ 7 tri-Emblems (401 ATK)
Green Talisman synthed w/ 2 tri-Emblems (400 ATK) (a lot of neck accessories could be substituted here for the base)
Learning Gloves
BEAT:B
+ 2 Potent Attack Seeds + 7 Attack Seeds = 3812 ATK
+ Berserk lvl 10
Dragon Roar lvl 10, chain 2 times to 160%: Colosseum (Team) - Gemini Dragons, on the Sister

I was playing around within the 3812 ATK range (3807 to 3814), with different amounts of Attack Seeds, but after 20 tries, I figured I'd just go synth something to get to 3812 ATK exactly - and then I got it on my first try.
