    Hey so I decided to write a guide on how I beat Carbuncle without any 5* base units.
    There are plenty of videos but since having something in writing is much easier to follow I decided to post this here.

    Here is what you will need:

    Setzer
    Mystea or Shylt
    2x (Shantotto) Tornado chainers
    Friend: Ayaka

    Setzer can have anything, as much beast killer as possible (Ifrit, beast killer, poach, and any other sources you have access to) and confuse resist.
    Mystea or Shylt will need to have as high SPR as possible and 150+ Light res and confuse resist.
    (5500 HP/650SPR recommended).
    2x Shantotto Only needs to have enough MP to cast tornado at least 3 times (to free up turns for when Ayaka needs to stop detach or reraise). Confuse resist is recommended to not waste turns.
    Ayaka should have enough MP refresh to spam dedication non stop.

    What you do per turn:
    Setzer will only use Double Dice
    Tornado chainers will SINGLE cast tornado
    Mystea/Shylt will rotate between Triteleia wall and Destination
    Ayaka will spam Dedication.

    You do not have to do anything else and should kill it within around 80-100 turns. Much less if RNG is good to you with Setzer, on average I did 1-3% damage every 3-5 turns.
    Make sure you keep Triteleia wall up at all times. Destination is not necessary but also helps reduce chances of you being killed.
    If your tornado chainers get confused, use the other to attack it.
    Your Mystea should not die but I've come close a few times (down to ~500HP), but if you're worried have Ayaka use reraise+curaga/ja every 3 turns.
    If your units get stopped use a turn to use Stop Detach on Ayaka.
    Equip Diabolos on one of your tornado chainers and cast it early on.
    You can dual cast tornado when Carbuncle is under 3% hp to be safe to get the magic kill mission.

    If for any reason any of your other units die, you can raise with Ayaka, but make sure your Mystea/Shylt is topped off with HP.

    Too bad i have no one who can prevent or cure stop. Another thing i'm unable to beat because i dont have one of the 2 healers. Maybe in November i can start playing this game if i pull a CG Folka....

    That's why I put Ayaka as the friend unit, you just need to bring the rest!

    Doesn't Carbuncle only deal threatening damage when going through Metamorphosis route?

    Welk. If u dont go brute Force on Aigaion u‘ll propably need just as Long xP
    Took me 30 turns just to kill Benno from The ancient Ruins. This felt like forever. If The Game gives u The opportunity to do an Boss an easier, safer way why not. Just think about The Xon Stone cheese. Its not pur fault if gumi didnt think of this way of beating stuff
