    IMPORTANT UPDATE: So I went in and did a little more planning and messing around with the team and turn rotations and I was able to get a much nicer clear with a much higher score. The video has been updated to reflect this. Builds will also be updated to reflect the change.

    So this is a rather special episode as I normally don't get the chance to use Esther much for DV, but with Alexander being a lightning weak machine I just couldn't help myself. And honestly I didn't think it would go this well. She's honestly the best unit for me to bring into this fight with her AR chaining LB, 120 lightning imperil and lots of innate machine killer!



    The timing with CG Squall's LB and Esther's is kinda tricky, but I tried to slow down the vid at that point to make it easier to see when I set everything off.

    The builds for this OTKO are as follows

    Esther

    Squall

    Regina

    Cloud
    Cloud (FFVII_ AC).png

    My Sylvie is full evade/provoke with 100% light resist and my Edgar is full LB fill with 100% light resist.


    Unfortunately I don't have anyone to thank from the Murder Bunny Army on this one, but I can thank you all for your support, which encourages me to continue making these videos!

    Now I'm off to see if I can improve my scores on mag stages in areas 2 and 3. Keep your bunny ears perked for a casting call after DV. I have some ideas for some new episodes!

    Have you tried Blue Fina´s new spell? She gives the party an AoE 30% bonus LB damage.

    Was just gearing Levin to chain With Rico when i realised Esther had Machine Killer xD Took 1 turn longer as Cloud needed to Fill lb again. T2 was an 61% burst.

    I haven't tried it, but tbh a 30% boost isn't going to do much for a lot of LB DDs since many of them already come with higher active LB boost in their rotations that would overwrite it. For example, Cloud's LB activates a 100% LB boost, and Esther's LB activates a 50% LB boost. BM Fina might find her way into a team comp for folks that don't have Rivera or 7* Lunafreya, both of which have a 50% AoE LB damage boost in their kit.

    I grew up on Pink Floyd, Grateful Dead, Phish, Rush, so I couldn't resist a chance to use Dark Side of the Moon.

    Wow 61% on T2 is pretty good considering the physical dmg mitigation Alexander has up! Nice clear! I'm considering trying this one again to get better dmg received and chain count scores. If I wait until T4 I can use Edgar's Royal Shock to chain with Esther and Squall. I might have to sacrifice some ATK/LB dmg to boost everyone's light resist, also.

    Looks like Esther is actually the chosen one on this battle for a lot of clears that I've seen, how cool is that? ::up::

    Did a revised clear with everyone at 70% or more light resist so I was able to clear without taking any damage and even got the 100 chain count. Damage ended up being about the same, surpisingly! I updated the video and builds in the OP.

    I myself also had Esther as a support chainer and imperiler for my team against Alexander.

    This is my Esther party. ::rudecat5::

    (Don’t ask how many soft resets to get that perfect 113 chain.)

    My first clear just moments ago, i would like to share a diferent team, but i'm too attached to my LB damage dealers to do so.
    Sieg is chaining AR

    Later i'll try to improve later and show a more detailed "strategy" ::search::

    Nice one, congrats! Very interested to hear the strat behind this team. Using Olive's magnus ability as a finisher? Does the death count against you?

    Only used her for BS chaining and and machine killer, actually i haven't used her outside arena so i'm still not sure what she can do.

    Self inflicted damage does not count against you according to the wiki, i don't know about death

    The main thing about that team was survivability, everyone had at least 90% light resist exept Sieg who was provoke evade tank (he was the only one who took damage) and as a AR chainer.

    Esther and Cloud followed their usual rotations, tweaking them a little to match lb turns if possible, and Olive just followed.

    Sylvie just being Sylvie.

    Now that i know what Alex can do, i will make some changes. I think it would be funnier if it were weak to water, i grew fond of Lunafreya on this DV

    Her magnus ability is a 150x finisher, but it kills her in the process. Would be interested to know if it counts against the KO score.

    I noticed today that I am not equipping a really good materia for this stage (Zodiac Shot). Plus I forgot disease. Did a rerun and got slight imrpovement! ::up::

    And no more soft resets. Full chain on first try. ::rofl::

    Edit: Another run. This time tried waiting Cloud’s turn 4 LB boost. It ended turn 7 because Alex puts the damage mitigation on turn 5. Another small improvement. ::up::

    On my 3 turn runs, the boss does not do the 90% imperil to the team, only the 70% one. I’m not sure what turn the boss do the 90%.

    With Sylvie, 70% light resist gears should be enough. On my team, Cecil only provides 80% buff, so my team had 90% gears (I don’t have Sylvie). I haven’t observed boss mechanics beyond 3 turns.

    It seems it only does the 90% imperil if you cross a threshold (80%, 60%, 40% HP) so as long as your OTKO then 70% is all good!

    Sadly it does.

    Changed Sieg for Reberta for more BS chain, Sylvie went full evasion/provoke/light resist (poor girl). Got a better score but it was barely an improvement.

    I need to practice Agent Olive's magnus timing
