    1. Basic Information
      • Primary Stats : MP, Mag, Spr
      • Assigned Unit Role : Mage / Healer / Support
      • Color of Megacite : Violet
      • Region : Grandshelt, Lanzelt ( 2nd Island )
      • Usage : Deals AoE Ice magic damage.

    2. Esper Stats
    3. How to Obtain
      Ramuh can be obtained in Lanzelt Mountains, to unlock Lanzelt Mountains on map you need to go to Wolfsfant Peak - Exploration :
      [​IMG]
      • Defeat the boss (green path on map, boss marked at #1 position)
      • Return to the place where new path was opened and follow new road till end (orange path on map, exit that unlocks new location is marked at #2 position)

    4. Notable skillset on Shiva Skill Grid
      • [​IMG] Libra - Active skill that displays info about one enemy.
      • [​IMG] Blizzara - Active skill that deals AoE 1.4x Ice magic damage.
      • [​IMG] Imperil - Active skill that Decrease all element resistance by 20% for 3 turns to Single Target.
      • [​IMG] Magic Break - Active skill that deals 1.2x physical damage on Single Target and reduce magic by 15%.

      One might consider why I put Libra as most important ability here - reason is that in late game getting Libra ability is really hard, devs dont really give much attention to giving this ability to new units and since most guides are based on information this skill provide I highly recommend to keep this skill available, also some peoples like to complete their monster guide in game :).

    5. Suggested Skill Grid Expansion
      This suggested skill tree was prepared while following these rules :
      • First priority is set on skills
      • Second priority is set on main stats
      • Each 100 stats give your unit additional 1 so maxing stat that wont let your Esper pass another 100x is worthless


      [​IMG]

      This ends with these modifiers to your unit ( values in brackets display additional bonus from grid ):

    Nice guide ::kupo:: and i agree Libra is very useful specialy later on Harder Trials, unless ppl just google the stats of the Boss::cactaur:: but i like to use it, just to see while battling whats up with resists and hp and all

    Shiva 3*: Basch, Lightning, iNichol, Sephiroth, LM Fina > took me 29 turns

    iNichol makes evade Lightning cover AoE phy... Basch with ice resist do the AoE mag tank... Can replace Sephiroth with better DPS (perhaps eTT since boss is SPR breakeable) ::up::

    Huh, so she kinda hits like a truck doesn't she? 220% ice resist on my Basch doesn't seem to cut it quite yet. Oh well, I'll just add an ice resist buff, and fail the 5 party members for now.

    Yeah right before the emergency maintenance kicked in, I quickly went to fight Shiva 3* but got wiped completely on Turn 1 LOL. I also thought I had to settle for a 6 man team instead of 5, but after the maintenance I moved around the equipment/accessories among the units and went right back in. Took me a couple of attempts but I managed to OBAMA on the 3rd try. :)

    Team:
    Ramza
    Mystea
    Ang (200% TDH)
    Yan
    Marie

    Had to drag out the fight because of the evoke esper mission and eventually took 31 turns for me to whittle down her HP to 4% so I could make sure of killing her with magic.

    I gotta say this was a pretty good fight and I enjoyed it! ^_^

    Good luck, everyone!

    Same, every Sephiroth I've seen's got an Ifrit on. So I settled for CG Lid. After a long slog chipping away at 40% of her health, I got killed after her second diamond dust, because Sephiroth was silenced, and couldn't resurrect Ayaka with full HP.

    The thing I didn't notice at first though was that Shooting Hail's just physical, not ice-elemental. I think I'll try and switch things around to make a physically bulky party with Basch used solely as a magic tank, besides maybe on the first turn. See how it goes.

    An anti-DEF/SPR break would help too of course.

    3 paths are possible:
    1) ST
    2) Esper EVO
    3) as a breaker.
