    Hello kupo.. ::mog::

    As you know, defeating this boss is not require for this very moment..
    But me being "oh new trial, and half energy, might as well try to beat it"
    after seeing video here and there and read here and there, finally i beat this boss

    and again, the reason i make this thread, is because i rarely find anyone talking about this boss, either you guys already beat it easily or waiting because this boss is not priority and we will get 7* soon

    anyway, for those who need some info about the boss, i will try to make another wall of text from my experience, be prepare kupo..

    BOSS SKILLSET
    this boss have 4 turn rotation of skill set, and always continue his rotation even after you pass the threshold
    100%-60%
    turn 1 : AOE physical + normal attack
    turn 2 : AOE ailment + normal attack
    turn 3 : self stat up + normal attack
    turn 4 : ST magic 1 hit x1 + normal attack

    60%-20%
    turn 1 : AOE physical + AOE magic multi hit + normal attack
    turn 2 : AOE ailment + normal attack
    turn 3 : self stat up + normal attack
    turn 4 : ST magic 1 hit x2 + normal attack

    20%-0%
    turn 1 : AOE physical + AOE magic multi hit x2 + normal attack
    turn 2 : AOE ailment + normal attack
    turn 3 : self stat up + normal attack
    turn 4 : ST magic 1 hit x3 + normal attack

    80% : summon 1 bomb
    60% & 30% : summon 2 bomb
    this bomb will explode after ?? turn after being summon, someone state next turn, while i read somewhere they explode in 2 turn

    and also the boss will summon Red Peaks and Flame Fowl here and there
    Red peaks will counter everytime you use abilities, likely will killed your unit
    Flame Fowl will counter everytime you use magic with fire magic

    BASIC STRATEGY
    you need to decide you will use magic (healing, reraise, etc) or pure ability (rikku LB for reraise, rosa LB for healing, bard for healing, CG nichol abilities, etc)

    if you decide to use magic, then make sure you prepare your team with 100% fire resistance,
    - e. cerius has 100% fire resistance to all allies
    - equip all your unit with 50% fire resistant and use barfira or similar like this

    then you decided you will use aoe magic cover or aoe physical cover
    - 100% evade basch / 100% evade wol will work very nice since they also can break boss stat
    - mystea will work fine as aoe magic cover and more she has clear veil so you don't need to worry about his turn 2 rotation, then bring provoke tank to eat normal attack (i saw many use wilhelm for this, which sadly i don't have)

    then you decided how you will null the aoe ailment in turn 2
    - mystea with clear veil
    - bring all unit with ribbon/discernment
    - use jade moon pendant (female only) - grant null ailment for 2 turns

    then make sure you have unit with dispel, and rotation unit to break stat after dispel
    - Odin have dispel
    - Lila can W-abilities , dispel then attack
    - dispel using magic will count as magic and be counter with fire aoe
    - or use xon to steal the buff to yourself - info from @Silvoz

    You need 2 dps that can take out bomb / Red peaks everytime its summoned
    2 bombs will come out together, so be sure 1 dps can take out 1 bomb/red peaks

    this is gonna be a long battle if you can't deal enough damage to the boss, so prepare your mp battery

    GO INTO THE BATTLE
    you can fight random enemy to fulfill LB if necessary, don't forget to bring tent to heal up before boss

    in the beginning of battle, everytime red peak being summoned, you need to kill it asap after they being summoned
    if flame fowl being summoned, just let it stay and focus on bennu
    if bomb being summoned, you need to kill it asap before they explode

    during my playtime, i kinda turtling in the beginning of battle until 3 or 4 flame fowl stay in the battle, the reason :
    when there is no companion, bennu will automatically summon them
    if there are already companions (3 or 4), bennu will take time to summon the next one
    i make sure when the bomb appear on threshold, he doesn't summon red peaks in the same time, so i only need to deal with 2 bombs, not 2 bombs and 1 red peaks..

    1st turn : prepare for aoe physical and aoe magic
    2nd turn : prepare for aoe ailment and ST physical
    3rd turn : ST physical and self buff -> don't forget to dispel then break the boss again in 4th turn
    4th turn : ST magic and ST physical

    MY TEAM
    my route is ->
    - no magic, i will bring rikku (rikku pouch for easy LB and LB built) for aoe reraise
    - aoe physical, i use 100% evade basch
    - jade moon pendant to null ailment because i won't use mystea and don't have enough ribbon
    - use Lila for attacker and dispel, rikku pair with odin for dispel (back up) if somehow 2 bomb appear in the same time boss buff himself
    - Rosa for her LB
    - Ramza for support

    Full unit rotation
    turn ramza basch Rosa rikku Lila 1 & 2
    1 sing dawn guard cradle of horn LB DPS
    2 sing spr break jade moon pendant ability eccentric from rikku pouch DPS
    3 sing dawn guard LB LB DPS
    4 sing mag break esper fenrir dispel/al beth dispel+dps
    additional info
    1. ST magic in turn 4 is fast frame between each attack, so the next hit will hit during reraise time if hit the same unit, so your unit will survive even with hit twice
    2. AOE magic in turn 1 is multi hit, thus why i mitigate using cradle of horn (SPR+DEF+mitigate) to make sure they survive the second AOE magic attack.. when your unit just being reraise in turn 4, they will lose buff from bard (if you using one), so insta spr and mitigation works well to sustain the damage
    3. with LB from rosa and ramza, i never run out of mp and hp.. i amaze with her..
    4. jade moon pendant is so awesome for null ailment since i don't use mystea and don't have enough ribbon
    5. other team that i watch in video usually combination using fryevia for mighty dps, wilhelm for mighty tank, lunera for higher hp mp recovery, CG nichol for mighty buff and mitigation, CG Lid for mighty break (which sadly i don't have any of them)
    6. my team took almost 40 turn to beat the boss

    Hope this help
    Good luck hunting Bennu
    Kupo~~ ::mog::::mog::

    Awesome guide, Syuri! ^^

    Managed to beat it with 5* except Mystea. CG Lid, Mystea, eWilhelm, CG Nichol, 2 eFryevias.
    CG Lid LB break and Maintenance if nothing to do.
    Mystea equip with Barfira and Cura (Marie where are youu?) rotated with Clear Veil also Dispel.
    eWilhelm Impregnable, Defend to heal, LB.
    CG Nichol 100% buff + mitigation, refill MP.
    2 Frys FFB or R020 Mirage for the bomb(s). I equipped her with pod 153.
    The battle was pretty stable and controlled.

    You must kill the bomb(s) the next turn after they appeared. So 2 turns?

    How did you achieve "Erwin in party" when your party consists of Lila x2, Ramza, Basch, Rikku, Rosa? :/

    First time you enter the maze, the madam will kill the angry birds for you.. i bring edwin first time to achieve edwin mission..

    Then you need to beat the bennu yourself the second time you enter the maze.. that will achieve the third mission grant you the crimson gem

    Thanks I’ll check around if someone has a solo carry then, maybe Noctis 100 physical and magic evasion and 100 fire resistance could do it haha.
    If you have some free time could you lend me you lila? I want to try it with your guide
