    *Sigh*

    I don't understand how in the hell can I defeat Great Malboro.
    The issue isn't the units, the issue isn't surviving his attacks, the issue is his devour.
    I legit don't understand how people can defeat Malboro when I see others being able to damage him to where he practically resets and never uses Devour.

    I don't understand how people can get past him because the two times I was able to survive and kill the lesser Malboro's, he will still use Devour and Bad Breath...

    So is this something they "patched in" like they did Glacial or did I miss something?

    Malboro trial is about how good your damage is and timing.
    Kill the lesser Malboros on turn,
    1. multiples 4 (4, 8, 12, etc) if Great Malboro has >50% HP
    2. multiples 3 (12, 15, 18, etc) if Great Malboro has <50% HP
    If you do, you can avoid devour

    You probably killed them on a turn NOT multiples by 4 or 3 I have mentioned.
    You shouldn't kill them on other turns if you don't want to screw up. Count the turn.

    You also avoid the berserk killing them on those turns.

    Remember to dispel at 50% threshold and mitigate (i.e. wilhelm lb) on turns divisible by 4 when under 50%

    So I have to kill them ON Turn 4,8,12 when he's above 50% and when he's below 50%, kill them on turns divisible by 3...
    Okay then, that does make some sense.

    And it doesn't start from the turn you take him below 50%. It counts from the start of the battle.

    So, if you kill adds on turn 8, no devour. Then on turn 9 you take him below 50%, now turn 9 will be when you have to kill the adds.

    Waste almost 500 rng for it. Some tip could useful for you. Above 50% hp , kill small malboro every 4 turn (count in turn 1) , below 50% hp , kill small malboro every 3 turn. It will avoid devour , get your provoke tank always on (rerise him every turn so he can take devour and berserk from big malboro), if your team not strong enough then 2 aoe rerise lb could help much (lm fina , yan , rikku), below 50% hp his action is really crazy make sure your party always have aoe rerise.

    Alright thanks guys, I just tested it out and yes, he did not devour my provoke tank when they are killed on the 4th turn at the start of the battle.
