    I don't think so , more hp and more dmg also. The only thing make us think it's more easier is coz no boxes go with it.

    Maybe because I kill him in three turn and the only things he use was focus power and smash

    Just beat the Pro version, but my Chizuru went down before the end of the fight (probably because she had Ifrit equipped, but she needs the DPS boost). I'm F2P & my current setup is Refia (with fire rod for damage when she isn't healing), CoD, Cecil, Chizuru (with Chirijiraden), Exdeath, all 6* max. I took a friend's Lightning with me (570 attack, which is the best I currently have available). Not sure I want to risk 23 NRG on Elite, even with the 708 attack friend Noctis I was saving for it.

    I do have a Noctis myself, but I only pulled him two days ago, so he is only at 6* lv73 at the moment & is my only 5* base, because RNGesus hates me. Do you guys think it is realistically possible to beat Elt with my current team & the friend Noctis, or should I power level mine first & then turf out my Chizuru for hybrid Noctis with Diablos? I'm just short of the final summon ticket, which I intend on getting & I'm aware that I'd probably need to sacrifice everything else from the event to level him in time (which isn't a huge problem, as I have quite a few 6* awakening mats hanging around from the last event & no urgent need of them, but those burst pots would be nice for Noctis).

    It's possible to do Dread Frost ELT with your team, you only need patience in doing it, don't rush to kill him. Keep priority to keep your team alive while chunk his HP away as much as you can. Also if your Noctis has decent high HP, swap Cecil with Noctis. Also bring Turbo Ether and Ether since you won't kill him fast enough and need to recharge your MP.

    1st turn : Refia (Embolden), CoD (Omni-Veil), your Noctis (Thunder Flask), friend Noctis (Warp Break), Chizuru (Barrage), Exdeath (Dual Black Magic - Meteor - Meteor)

    For next turns, you need to adjust the strategy depends on Dread Frost's actions. Just keep up the debuffs on him and the buffs on your team to reduce the damage. Don't attack using Refia. You'll need her to heal, and if Dread Frost uses Focusing Power, then Refia uses Guard stance to reduce damage in case she receives Smash. Also don't forget to use Osmose for your Exdeath when your MP is quite low (you can use Dual Black Magic - Meteor - Osmose so you won't waste a turn). Even if your team is just average, I think you'll only need 7-8 turns max to kill him, and faster if your team is stronger.

    You can definitely beat him with that team and even the 570 ATK friend.
    My team is slightly worse than yours: Cecil, CoD, Chizuru, Tilith and ExDeath.

    1st turn:

    Cecil - Barblizzara (equipped) -> Switch to Winter Ward once you get it.
    Chizuru - Glint
    CoD - Barrage
    Tilith - Celestial Light
    ExDeath - Double Meteor
    Friend - Strongest attack

    2nd turn

    Cecil - Provoke
    Tilith - Heal
    Repeat everything else.

    Basically the only commands that change for me are Cecil and Tiliths.

    The Dread dies in 5 ~7 turns

    Tip: remember to equip Ice Shield, Snowstorm Shield, Ice Armor and Shiva on your units to boost their ice resistence.

    You can also try to replace Cecil with a breaker. Wol would be good if you have him coz he's also a tank. I use full break until I reduce his mag and atk.

    My current team is cod (ifrit with the festival stuff), wol, refia (shiva), exdeath and lightning. My lightning has an ATK of less than 500 (equipped diablos for the demon killer) and I bring a friend, usually from 500-650 dmg, preferably with diablos.

    I also prefer using lightning's area blast with chiz's glint for the chain.

    Thats how I kill him in one turn. She'll have a place on my team for quite a while with that break.

    If you don't have any 5 star base units, I believe two of them will do work for you. Chizuru can chain with herself for very high damage. So if you have a second Chiz, I would level her if I were you.

    His mag should be double than elt normal lvl coz he does more dmg in blizzardga to my team and he nearly kill my wwfina by using his smash.

    This made me smle and made my mind wander for a bit; of course you would have the given WTF and ORLY there could be modes like

    "Dyer" rank

    Requirements:
    -sacrifice ten virgin kittens



    Oboi difficulty

    Boss of the month uses the nVission effect

    You see 3 Noctis spawn alongside the boss Oboi style and they're human controlled.

    Which brings an interesting thought, what if we had an event where the boss could summon their own visions, be an interesting wrinkle

    <3 dread version because I still need to farm event points but I also get 30k exp! woot! to that, not as efficient as running an exploration but I get two benefits with just the dread.

    well tickle a tiger and call me a panty snatcher, this failed attempt to make another Halloween event with not even half the rewards and call it a "Raid", that thing they have on the JP version that is not even a comparison, yeah that thing. well this is not even worthy of continuing.
