Edit on Feb 18th: Since people seem to have trouble finding the bosses, I did this:
Well, I managed to take down 3 out of the 4. Immortal was kind and dropped Romulus & Remus twice. Took a third battle before it gave me Indrajit.
I still need to redo the Ochu and Long Gui battles for their drops. I managed to get Gandiva from one fight against Ochu but I want the other weapon too. 😛
And so, only Yomi remains. I tried this battle three times and ended up hitting Retry every single time since it was getting to the point that the enemy was dealing way too much damage.
My mistake was that I didn’t have ANY Sentinel and spent most of my time buffing and healing. For some reason, it didn’t click that it had a tendency to pick on single targets and not attack the entire group (with the exception of the dreadful Wicked Whirl attack).
Someone on Twitter suggested to have at least two SABs for the fight. A friend on Facebook suggested that SABs were the way to go too so I guess I need to outfit some paradigms with Saboteurs. :3
Actually, had I had the guidebook next to me when I was playing, I would have known to shuffle out the Flanitor and throw in something like a Bunkerbeast instead.
Here’s the set-up the friend had for the fight and given the fact that he farmed Yomi, I would take it this works well:
sab com sab
sab sab sab
com com sab
med med syn
med syn syn
sen sen sen
(Serah Noel Monster)
I also changed up the accessories a bit and put some some magic resistance stuff on both Noel and Serah. Since I had one Bloodguard, I threw that on Noel. I might switch it to Serah though since Noel’s HP is really high at the moment. ^^;
Update: YAY! Yomi is done! 😀 It was a terrible battle. 😦 It took me 15 minutes and 13 secs and a stupid paradigm shift almost cost me the battle since everyone’s HP was in the red. (Was trying to go into Tortoise when it was about to do the Wicked Whirl but ended up at some other paradigm instead. 9__9) I think the poison did the monster in though since it had piddly life left anyway. 😄
Since I have no need for its drop, I’m happy to say good riddance to this boss. 😛
Edit on Feb 16: My paradigms didn’t include a SAB monster, BTW. Pretty sure I had a Flanitor (MED) in place of one. The reason for this was that I didn’t have any saboteur monsters levelled and was way too lazy to begin to raise one. 😛 However, maybe if I did, the fight wouldn’t have taken so long cuz I would have an extra offensive unit instead of simply relying on Noel and Serah to do the job.
Now to spend money at Serendipity to buy the 2 remaining fragments at the exchange counter and I guess I’ll continue on with the game now!
Oh wait. I want Grasitha from Ochu, didn’t I? Sigh. Back to the Steppe then …
Update #2: Buh. Five tries later, I suddenly remembered that I had a Blue Chocobo with Item Collector. I swapped it in as my RAV monster even though its HP was wimpy. (It’s not even over 1900. >:/) All I needed to do was end the battle with it anyway so as long as I didn’t change to Relentless Assault while being swarmed by Microchus, this was going to work! :3
And it did! ^__^ (Or maybe it worked because I didn’t throw Mog at Ochu first before starting the battle this time around?)
The silly thing is, I have Odinblade and Odinbolt already so I have no real need for these weapons. Well, other than for the Lv. 5 Chain Bonus.
Hmm. Since I spent all this time to get Grasitha, I might as well use it for a while. :3
Update #3 (Feb 16): Did a rematch with Yomi for the hell of things with the paradigms listed above. It cut down the battle time quite a bit! *_* Probably would have been a bit faster if I switched COM COM SAB in more often though.
Here’s the result:
Er, the amount of gil you see in the screenshot is a result of having a Durable Collector Catalog equipped on Noel. ^^ It kind of stinks that it dropped a damn Tear of Woe though as a spoil. 9__9
I wonder if anyone is crazy enough to play this battle on high speed? Oh, I guess there ARE people that do it. ^^;;;;
Huh. Apparently, Raspatil is the best for gil farming. :O (Oh yeah~! Scarletite drops!!)
Gonna try switching in a Tonberry for COM since it has the Chaser-type attacks which deal more damage to enemies inflicted with certain debuffs. Wanna try and bring down the time. 😄
Oh wow. Durable Hermes Sandals has Auto-Haste which casts Haste at the start of battles! But its accessory cost is 75. It also requires a Trapezohedron. 9__9
Ooh. Took down Immortal in under 2 minutes. Probably would have been faster if I didn’t stop to heal the Tonberry … or fight the stupid sword.
D’oh! 8 minutes and 34 seconds for Yomi. 😄
