    So I went for a day one clear and tried to copy Sinzar's clear. Unfortunately, I don't have SS Lightning for the big boy spirit break and I fell short. Apparently that 5% extra spirit break makes a big enough difference that he survived and nuked my team. Back to the drawing board for a quick and easy method. I managed a 3 turn clear without SS Lightning's break and without taking any damage. So here it goes:
    Kryla- ex1-break, paralyze, imperil
    Relm-7*-rod/fire imperil, LB fill
    Physalis-ex2-chaining and cap
    Terra-ex3-cap
    Shui yu-ex1-chaining
    Friend Shui yu
    Paralyze the boss, break him and hex him turn 1. Power up dps and Relm does Relm things. Chain and cap with Terra on turn 2. Chain and cap with Physalis on turn 3. All missions and done

    Why don't you simply use a magic cover unit and a double mirage unit? He deals no relevant damage at all.

    I started to but honestly I wanted to do something that didn't have to deal with thresholds. This was super easy. Unnecessary but easy

    This is a Grade A "...if you know and play the patterns/gimmicks" left unspoken comment. ::happy::
    Source: bringing Faisy and Rinora and a provoke/evade 80% breaker and still having him deal "relevant damage," because I have no knowledge of nor concern for his nonsense. ::rofl:: (edit: and can't 1-2-3 turn him.)
    Solution: a handful of hit-him-with-my-face attempts, w/ 3 sources of dispel, until I landed on some acceptable series of HP %s; 8 turn OBAMA. ::kefka::

    It really was a joke. Your Shui Yu is a beast and I'm glad you had her set up

    I´m going to be the only scrub that has cleared this fight using NVA Kefka and a badly geared friend Ibara in 11 turns, aren´t I?

    Did it on turn 3 with all missions. DPS were a pair of Radiant Lightning, spaming their LB on turn 2 and 3. Human killer buff and LB damage buff from Yoshikiri, LB fill and amplify from Relm, breakse from SS Lightning, physical tank with Tyro.

    Tyro is especially good because of his mitigation/DEF/SPR buff. Together with Lightning's 85% MAG break, Meteor was a joke. Tyro as physical cover tank with evasion because pushing multiple thresholds at once resulted in three or more Reaper, making Mirage obsolete.

    If you inflict paralysis on the boss, you have no need for a tank. Hit him with Kryla or toxic rain and bring additional dps/support

    I had to do it with NV Physalis and an Ibara friend. Couldn't fit in a finisher either because I needed a perfect dispel - the one time in his life that Dark Knight Luneth was useful.

    Took 12 turns, but at least my macro gave me CWA chains every time.
