    this method as always OTKO after pass the second phase which 50% HP locked
    so only covering the first phase, then OTKO the second phase..

    Brachium aka shadow in disguise :
    • can be ATK/MAG/SPR/DEF break
    • become haze : dogde 5 physical atk for 5 turns, use every 5 turn including pre-emptive atk (PA, 4,9,14, and so on) -> can be dispel
      • the dev sick of players using evasion, so they make evasion boss too.. lulz
    • rotation : hide in the dark (buff def/spr) -> assassination anticipation (buff atk/mag) -> behead (insta KO, can be provoke, cannot be prevent)
    • 90% and 70% threshold : dispel AOE, 99% damage
      • After passing threshold, you need to damage the boss using physical (normal atk/abilities), so the next turn he will counter with AOE physical damage.. if you use magic -> counter with AOE magic damage.. if you don't atk him -> counter with AOE insta death
    • >70% : every 2 turn AOE physical damage
    • <70% : every turn AOE physical damage
    • 50% threshold : 99% damage, magic mitigation, AOE dispel, cast AOE blind, sleep, ST charm, imbue your team with dark elemental
      • if you pass the 50% while his dodge is active, his dodge will still active along other buff/break after you pass the 50%
      • after 50%, he will increase resistance to all elemental, except he will reduce resistance to fire
    How to trick the behead :
    • you can bring one main aoe cover tank and one other ST provoke tank for decoy, both need to be 100%
    • Put the decoy on the 1st spot, most top left, and put your main tank in back row.. this will trigger the boss to hit the first spot first.. just put some reraise to your decoy / just raise next turn
    How to trick the AOE physical atk :
    • Bring AOE physical cover
    • Bring Sara if you don't have AOE physical cover
    After threshold 90% and 70% :
    • you need to apply the provoke / cover since the boss dispel you
    • you NEED to atk him using physical damage first, then following magic damage.. for safety, just hit him with physical damage in next turn after threshold
    Passing 50% :
    • make sure his dodge already disappear (you can normal atk / using multiple hits atk / dispel), all his buff and debuff will carry on to the second phase.. so timing your break..
    • avoid using physical damage to pass the 50% since he will imbue your team with dark elemental damage (you can use dispelga trick, but if you have mage, just use mage in first phase)
    • ST charm can be provoke by your decoy 100% innate draw atk since he will dispel first then cast the ST charm
    • make sure your team have null blind and sleep ailment, or you can use healing skill next turn if require (ex : ayaka LB can heal all status ailment and charm altogether, just make sure she in reverse team when passing 50% threshold)
    • As @Almea said : you can use counter to deplete the boss to 50% - this trick always work for every CoA trial iirc, that way you have 1 extra turn before the boss use 50% threshold skill..
    After 50% :
    • Bring your main dps with fire elemental, use garnet with IFRIT (not bahamut) to finish the boss..
    OVERALL :
    • No need magic tank
    • Sara/cover physical tank
    • provoke decoy unit for behead and ST charm
    • fire elemental dps for second phase
    • garnet with IFRIT esper (fire physical) instead bahamut (non elemental magic), because the boss have weakness fire and have magic mitigation
    • null blind/sleep for passing the second phase
    • magic unit for first phase until pass the second phase is preferable
    • avoid using physical atk to pass the 50% threshold, since the boss will imbue your team with dark elemental atk
    • using physical atk the next turn after passing the threshold 90% and 70%
    My team :
    • Noctis - breaker
    • I. Nichol - LB / aoe cover for noctis
    • Garnet - fulfill esper
    • DragonLord - magic for first phase and helping in second phase
    • Ayaka - LB for threshold and reraise
    • Hyoh - fire for second phase
    • Orlandu - fire for second phase
    • 13 turns clear all missions
    Hope this help
    go get that crown

    Instead of having Sara can you bring a physical evade cover? or is Sara a must bring unit?

    haha.. i still lack of CG unit tho.. :cool: no beachboy nichol too.. ugh..

    you can use this team :
    evade chizuru for provoke
    sara for aoe cover
    decoy innate draw atk like snow
    garnet
    healer
    any mage
    *2 fire physical chainer*

    the bottleneck is :
    evoke esper 3 times within 30 turns
    you have to OTKO the boss after passing the second phase, this will require OP fire physical chainer, cap with garnet ifrit full evo mag

    if you cannot OTKO the 50% HP, things will turn ugly with the boss cast magic damage and charm..

    Barusa only have 50% innate draw atk, moogle plushie 30%, balloon 15% -> 95%
    you need to 100% innate draw atk
    you can add K producer jacker : 15%
    then yes, you can put barusa in first slot and wilhelm in last spot

    Will Olive's Immolation blast stack with Demonic's decision in reducing fire resist?

    i'm not really sure about this, but if the boss himself change weakness -100% fire, then external imperil (ex : olive immolation blast) should apply become -200% fire weakness
    but i'm not 100% sure about my answer.. might need other member's answer for your question

    I can do it without 100% evade right?
    And this trial doesn't require magic damage (if you dispel his evade) right?

    You can with Sara's retreat command but still need a provoker, if you choose MAG route you might want to bring MAG tank to soak dmg to your party.

    Watch this guide from Rozalin for reference...

    Very good guide, thanks! I did it first try but missed the esper kill (bad timing), so I'll have to come back sometime.

    I used:
    100% passive provoke Barusa
    100% evade WoL
    LM Fina
    MS Nichol
    HT Lid
    Garnet
    7* eTT
    6* Hyoh
    VoD
    Sephiroth
