This fight IMO is the easiest out of the three most recent trials. So if you've defeated Gilgamesh, this fight will be easy, especially if you have minfilia (she makes this trial a joke). Recommended units Support: Minfilia - She was literally made for this trial... She has a confuse resist buff, which will help prevent your attackers from getting confused. She can also up each resistance by 70%. Marie - She's a great support too! She can up the resistance of every single attribute by 50%, so she won't have to be working as hard as minfilia. She also has barfiraja and barwaterja and she also has dual cast so she's also great for this trial. Her flaw is that she doesn't have any confuse resist skill. Rikku - Rikku is a must for almost every trial. She has reraise with her lb and she has a skill that ups the resistance of every single attribute by 40%. 40% may not seem like much but she also has a built in 30% damage migitation too! Tanks: WoL - He's a great tank that has 100% provoke. He may be dying a lot but your other units will survive! Additionally, he has powerful breaks but the flaw is that his breaks are AOE so if both espers are alive, they will counter with some powerful attack. Cecil - He is a great tank with lots of versatility. He doesn't need to use any skill before being able to tank well. He can just guard. Additionally, he has a great LB that works nicely to decrease the squishiness of your units and increase the firepower. Wilhelm - He's the best pure tank in the game but he doesn't have much versatility mixed in. However, he does a great job at what he does and he can easily take a hit! Attackers: Tidus - He's a great attacker that can put out huge amounts of damage. But his most useful ability is his mp regen move that also gives 100% water resist. Orlandu - He can put out even more firepower than tidus and he also can debuff attack/magic for ifrit. This is super useful because unlike WoL, this move is ST so siren won't counter. Eileen - Shes a powerful attacker with the highest attack stats in game! She also has an AOE mp regen that helps maintain your MP in this battle. Balthier - He works the best with one of these units above because he is can debuff element resistance. He also can debuff defense and attack, which is super useful for siren and ifrit, especially if you don't have another breaker. Balthier is also resistant to confuse so he won't randomly attack your units. His finishing blow is also super lethal and you'll have to worry about putting out too much damage! (I have no balthier it's sad ) Healers: Tilith - Shes an amazing healer that can provide full heals and can help keep your MP in good shape so the no item clear is easy. Additionally, tilith can also buff all attributes except for dark so if something goes wrong, tilith can help buff your units a bit Rem - One of the best healers behind tilith, rem has a great skill set. She can put out decent damage while healing and she also has reraise which is very useful for tanks like WoL or healers who are very squishy and prone to dying. Refia - Great healer but needs dualcast to be decent. Yshtola - Has dual cast curaja for heals and also comes with protectga and shellga to reduce the squishiness of your units. Yshtola also comes in handy during thresholds as her LB can dramatically reduce the damage taken. Mages: TBH, they are not the most useful in this fight because of their squishiness. However, esper terra is a great mage that also has arise. In addition to that, she can evade attacks with a high chance so she won't get very damaged. Dark espers tips: 1. Don't skip any thresholds at 70, 50, and 30%. They will either mega nuke you if you skipped 70% or they will both full heal if you skipped 50%. 2. Keep ifrit attack debuffed. This is crucial to surviving because it will make this trial a walk in the park. 3. Always keep element buffs up. Without element buffs, they will hit very hard. However, with buffs, they hit like me trying to punch someone. 4. Do not debuff ifrits defense/spirit and do not debuff sirens attack/magic. They will counter attack with a very powerful ability. Recommended equips: Black choker - this needs to go on your best physical attacker unless you have minfilia. Grand helm - this is great on your tanks however it also might benefit your attackers as it prevents confusion and sleep when equipped with a heavy armor. Flame mail - increases fire resistance Flame shield - increases fire resistance Demon mail - increases fire power and provides a lot of defense. It also increases darkness resistance. Force armor - increases defense by a lot and provides some resistance to attributes. Esper tips: Bring siren, ifrit and diablos for additional resists. Diablos goes well on your healer. Do not bring carbuncle, ramuh or shiva. It's not worth the extra stats for additional damage. What can a unit do when they're dead? This concludes my guide!
