    Last DV we talked about a thread for DV. I figure we can split them up into stage 2 and 3 since stage 1 is relatively easy to max for most vets.

    I'll be starting on the second stage today, hoping we can share tips and team comps to help eachother out for higher scores!

    Will report back later today, feel free to share info on stage 2!

    UPDATE

    2-1 Perfect Score using....

    P.cecil evasion auto provoke for lightning resist and magic cover
    Fid for breaks, AR chains
    AC Cloud
    Cid
    AC Tifa for water imbue, imperil and 200% LB buff for Cloud
    MM Xon to spread the love

    I had to kill the second one on turn 2 or else on turn 3 Cids jumps were hitting the other enemy. Turn 3 Cecil and Fid AR chain, Tifa and Xon triple SR and Cid and Cloud cap.

    Stage 2 is killing me, I really feel my lack of proper magic based units, is there any chance of me finishing the last/boss fight even without water magic damage? I don't mind if the battles takes long

    The only semi proper magic unit I have is Emperor and he is a fire finisher, dunno if imperiling will do the trick somehow and just chain cap with his FFB

    You can use any element you want, but it will be lower damage because of resists.

    Quite a lot of beast and water stages imo.
    For Water imbue and 100% Imperil + turn 2 200% Buffs - if rng is good: Sweet Luka. Good unit for this DV.

    Also even more of use when Gumi fixed their turn count poop: TDW Cid.

    Rab can imbue Dork and also imperil it on turn 3. Karten can imbue and imperil by 100% on turn 1 but with cost on his HP. That substracts from damage recieved and is suboptimal.

    Its amazing how much tankier dark Phoenix is compared to all the other stages. Managed to damage cap everything up to that point then this bird is just like nope.

    Currently at 1.02m but hopefully they fix the scoring soon. Perfect on 9/10 feels pretty good atm.

    How'd you cap 2-1? Just made a team but only got 1.5B with Cid being my only finisher. Might end up doing 2 AR chainers and 2 finishers instead.

    I can verify that as I have been using Ardyn to buff all elements on T1, it does 99% self damage and I still ran a perfect stage (just the one though)

    Figured out what I was doing wrong. Cids jump was landing on the other enemy I wasn't targeting so his damage wasn't inside of a chain. Problem solved....

    2-1 Perfect Score using....

    P.cecil evasion auto provoke for lightning resist and magic cover
    Fid for breaks, AR chains
    AC Cloud
    Cid
    Tifa for water imbue, imperil and 200% LB buff for Cloud
    MM Xon to spread the love

    Tifa buffs lb fill rate,only. Maybe it's a typo
    Cloud doesn't need that. His LB is ready to go anyway. :)

    Well done.
    I will try to start DV stage 2 later on

    I did all stages pretty similar (until 2-3 at the moment):
    All stages:

    - evade-provoke Rikku for breaks and Lightning Imbue when recommended
    - Lunafreya or Lucas as imperiler/support/imbuer
    - Elena and Levinson as TC AR chainer

    Physical stages:

    - AC Cloud and TDW Cid as finisher

    Magical stages:

    - Elly as finisher
    - either a second finisher (e.g., Lulu for Water stages) or A. Fryevia as a third AR chainer

    I cannot cap max damage in 2-2 or 2-3 with this setup. For stages with preemptives, I gear all units for 100% element resist, so I loose a bit damage.

    Also make sure to make units resistant against status ailments, enemies tend to us paralyze quite often
