    hi kupo ::hiya::::mog::
    just wanna share a little bit about this in case anyone still interest : https://exvius.gamepedia.com/Ruins_of_the_Water_God/New_Trial_of_the_Water_God

    there is a lot of combination team to take down the boss ^^

    first lets take a look of boss skill set :
    every turn :
    AOE ice and water magic damage (+ imperil 30% water resistance)
    AOE physical damage
    ST physical damage
    ST petrify

    below 80% :
    additionally every turn cast AOE stop

    below 60% :
    additionally every turn cast ST magic damage

    for threshold 80% and 40% :
    cast mitigate skill + AOE water magic damage + imbue water elemental to your party
    during this threshold, levi won't use any other skill

    next lets see leviathan gimmick :
    levi will cast mitigate damage 99% every turn (can be dispel)
    but, if you attack her with ice damage for 3 turn, she will snort one of your unit, but she won't cast the mitigate skill anymore

    Levi is aquatic type and can be fully stat broken
    -100% lightning, absorb water
    aquan killer is ollie (friend summon) TMR and faris TMR
    M aquan killer can be obtain from levi 2* and serpent mace

    Mission :
    evoke ramuh
    evoke alexander
    kill with LB
    --------------------

    seeing the skill, you can bring :

    Team 1 (aoe magic tank + provoke tank (avoid snort))
    • aoe magic tank + provoke tank (avoid snort)
    • 100% ice and 130% water resist for your magic tank (including buff) and build balance with HP and SPR since the boss hit hard using ST magic non elemental
    • dispel unit to the boss (almost every turn when you want to deal damage)
    • break unit (every turn you dispel the boss, you need to break the boss)
    • damage dealer
    • healer (optional)
    • buffer (optional)
    • summoner to fast collect esper (optional), don't forget to equip alexander and ramuh
    • stop immunity (lakshmi or ayaka or zarg)
    • provoke tank need to petrify resistance
    • using this team means your unit will eat aoe physical damage (levi can cast 1 or 2 per turn), so build them def gear
    • sara and i.nichol can negate physical atk if you can put one of them in your party

    Team 2 (aoe magic tank + provoke tank (eat snort))
    • aoe magic tank + provoke tank (eat snort)
    • 100% ice and 130% water resist for your magic tank (including buff) and build balance with HP and SPR since the boss hit hard using ST magic non elemental
    • sacrifice unit (using provoke) for snort
    • break unit
    • damage dealer
    • healer (optional)
    • buffer (optional)
    • summoner to fast collect esper (optional), don't forget to equip alexander and ramuh
    • stop immunity (lakshmi or ayaka or zarg)
    • provoke tank need to petrify resistance
    • using this team means your unit will eat aoe physical damage (levi can cast 1 or 2 per turn), so build them def gear
    • sara and i.nichol can negate physical atk if you can put one of them in your party

    Team 3 (aoe physical tank + provoke tank (avoid snort))
    • aoe physical tank + provoke tank (avoid snort)
    • aoe phycial tank can go evade or build high HP/DEF
    • all unit need to achieve 130% water + 100% ice (including buff)
      • ex if using CG nichol 70% water/ice, then your whole team need 30% ice/60%water
    • provoke tank need to build high SPR and HP to eat ST magic non elemental (reraise can help)
    • dispel unit to the boss (almost every turn when you want to deal damage)
    • break unit (almost every turn you dispel the boss, you need to break the boss)
    • damage dealer
    • healer (optional)
    • buffer (optional)
    • summoner to fast collect esper (optional), don't forget to equip alexander and ramuh
    • stop immunity (lakshmi or ayaka or zarg)
    • provoke tank need to petrify resistance
    this way you don't need to gear def or spr to normal unit (healer, damage dealer, buffer), since they will receive no damage

    Team 4 (aoe physical tank + provoke tank (eat snort))
    • aoe physical tank + provoke tank (eat snort)
    • aoe phycial tank can go evade or build high HP/DEF
    • all unit need to achieve 130% water + 100% ice (including buff)
      • ex if using CG nichol 70% water/ice, then your whole team need 30% ice/60%water
    • provoke tank need to build high SPR and HP to eat ST magic non elemental (reraise can help)
    • unit to be sac for snort
    • break unit
    • damage dealer
    • healer (optional)
    • buffer (optional)
    • summoner to fast collect esper (optional), don't forget to equip alexander and ramuh
    • stop immunity (lakshmi or ayaka or zarg)
    • provoke tank need to petrify resistance
    this way you don't need to gear def or spr to normal unit (healer, damage dealer, buffer), since they will receive no damage

    Team 5 (3TKO passing threshold)
    3TKO passing threshold
    aoe magic tank with 100% water
    dispel to boss and dispel to your own unit if using physical DD
    break unit + imperil lightning + very OP damage dealer (with lightning)+ buffer

    additional Team 6 (Manufacted Nethicite team)
    • Unit with Manufacted Nethicite / Celes / Rena
    • Cover physical tank
    • No need any elemental resist
    • Dispel / Buff / Break / Imperil
    • Damage dealer that can deal more than 80% damage to levi
    Levi only cast 1 blizzaja / waterja above 50% HP, which can be seal with Manufacted Nethicite every turn, so your whole team will be safe from magic.
    Just don't cross the 80% threshold, since leviathan will use tsunami (AOE magic water)
    troll around to collect esper orb to summon both esper
    after that, dispel the boss , imperil , buff your unit, break the boss.. damage dealer deal damage (+ LB for mission) to kill leviathan from above 80% HP

    so.. which one is your team ?
    mine is team 3 with only 5 man clear all mission,
    because using magic tank already too mainstream.. ::happy::
    basch - evade cover + SPR break
    zarg - provoke + stop immunity
    CG nichol - mp + ice/water resist
    ayaka - dispel and reraise
    CG sakura - DD
    yippie, troll levi.. i play safe and even forgot that nichol buff and zarga buff is same and cast both of them.. sigh.. welp, 39 turns..


    good luck catching the water goddess..
    if you have any question or want to add something or spot incorrect data or anything, do feel free to let me know..

    Cheers,
    levi cast flood

    Aye! Aye! (All stats unpotted, LB lv 1) That hammer has 35% HP on top of innate 20%. Esper = Golem.

    Edit: I used S.Nichol for 100% DEF/SPR buff + 30%
    general dmg. mitigation + 40% mag dmg mitigation on my Glady and he ends up taking 5-8k per turn from that St magic.

    New build: He now makes 7 LS per turn. If you do Inspect (first turn only) -> Blink (fill 4-6 LS) -> Inspect -> LB -> Repeat from Blink, he will have enough to fire his LB every 3 turn. (I also set him up as friend unit.)

    Think I'm gonna go the magic cover route and use a tonitrus kurasame DD. My biggest problem will be dedicated breakers, lol. Def/Spr are no problem for me, but atk/mag cause issues.

    Hi Syuri. Thanks for another quick tips. ^^

    I also went with team 3 combination. But with 6 units, not 5 like you. :)

    IMG_20181130_012600.jpg

    I set my Gladio full evade lol. Maybe I should set him normally like aa25 did because he's bulky enough. I used Merc Ramza for provoking and entrust, also heal a bit. Setting him and Gladio in that position made him never do the silly jump to cover Gladio during the entire battle.
    Granny Sakura's pentacast plus Loren's LB made it finished in 12 turns. Not too bad I guess. :)
    @Barroth Thanks for the help! It's quite hard to find a friend unit for my setup.

    This is by far the most frustrating fight I've ever encountered.

    Using:

    Basch for MAG Tank
    Loren for breaks
    CG Fina for heals/dispel
    CG Nichol for buffs
    Fifth slot been testing - had Rena for heals and stop, tried Nyx for provoke tank

    Friend BSS for damage

    I literaly have not gotten below 90%. The issue seems to be the AoE physical.

    Any advice, outside of borrowing an AoE phys cover tank?

    I did it in 7 turns with a team I created yesterday, magic tank+provoke+avoid snort.
    A.Rain 130 water/100 ice
    Zaarg evade provoke tank+buffer
    HT Lid 10Lb/turn def/hp+ barusa tmr, breaker, with Alexander
    Garnet with Ramuh, esper filler+dispel+healer
    2x Thunder Hyoh, full dmg.
    7 turns for double summoning, and at 37% 2 Hyoh's LB for the LB kill :)

    No. Tried it out. It dispels, does not grab the mitigation.

    Ty. But could easily beat him without.
    7* A rain is just wicked here. Zarg for mitigation/stop, Loren only doing breaks/imperils. Fina mp battery till I could summon the 2, hyou triple on Levi with mitigation just for orbs and lb crysts. After I summoned both, Dispel and full attack. Hyou Limit wrecks him with Loren buffs. XD

    bwahh ::rudecat7:: only 5-8k damage ? i'm so jelly.. ::rudecat11::

    shiva 3* have skill that can break ATK/MAG or DEF/SPR

    thats nice.. thanks for sharing.. next time i used 2 tank which one is m.ramza, i will set them like yours..
    M.ramza love to jump here and there..

    if you decided to use mag tank, then you need to gear your unit with decent DEF, because every turn levi will cast AOE physical damage, and once in a while she will cast twice in 1 turn.. and you also need provoke tank to eat ST physical tank
    *sara can cast retreat command every turn which will negate 1 hit physical atk every turn for all unit, but you still need to gear DEF in case levi cast twice the AOE physical damage

    for stop, lakshmi have skill to resist stop, while rena is cure stop.. and you want your unit to resist stop instead take the stop and then cure it, because once your unit is stop, they will stop moving/covering and take all the damage (evade etc won't work)

    from wiki, levi has 750 ATK , and the modifier for AOE physical is 5x
    if my math is accurate,
    with break 45% and mitigation 20%, DEF 400 (including active buff), your unit will take around 2.8k - 3.3k damage per 1 AOE..
    with break 45% and mitigation 30%, DEF 400 (including active buff), your unit will take around 2.5k - 2.9k damage per 1 AOE..

    I pulled it off different then shown above

    Team was
    Zarg - full evade
    Olive - manufactured nethacite
    Illusionist Nichol
    PG Lasswell 1900 attack
    Hyoh - 2200 attack lightning
    Hyoh friend - 2050 attack lightning

    Point of this strategy is to bring Leviation down to 81% then killing in one shot.

    Everyone should have petrification resist and/or have items to cleanse it

    Zarg is just going to sit there and use archadian Crest to get rid of stat reductions to party members and get lb crystals and esper orbs with counter attacks

    Illutionist nichol will be redirecting damage to to zarg, occasionally dispelling leviathans shield and summoning Alexander.

    Olive will be casting manufactured nethacite every turn. As long as Leviathan is above 80% he only casts one spell.

    Lasswell will be dispelling, attacking to get Crystal's and orbs, and summoning Ramuh

    Hyohs will just be attacking to get Crystal's and orbs

    With the manufactured nethacite every turn and all physical attacks directed to a full evade Zarg the party will take zero damage as long as you do not leave phase one.

    Once you get leviathan to 81%, maxed all lb gauges and have summoned both espers continue to turtle for one more turn and have both hyohs use Way of the Void. Then have either zarg or illusionist nichol dispel. Olive use immolation blast. At that point chain the Hyohs LBs and cap with PG Laswells LB. All missions complete.

    Alot of that was overkill. PG lasswells chain cap wasnt needed. Also zarg and ill. Nichol could have been replaced with full evade Wol. But I wanted extra dispels incase something went wrong. But it would have been impossible without Olive, 2 Hyohs, and the manufactured nethacite. Also as a note, no one had any killers on them to increase damage. Hope this info helps anyone.

    Credit should go to S.Nichol for providing a huge damage mitigation (30% general + 40% mag ~= 58% total, not include DEF/SPR buffs).

    Edit: Just redid it with Lilith instead of Glady, she works better than him in this trial though. Easier to gear for provoke and having stats more on SPR side help a lot (still letting her do phy cover + provoke though).

    This was close to how I ended up doing it. Zero damage received, can OBAMA (I rushed through the first time I did it this way and missed some missions).

    I used:

    MS Nicky - ATK and DEF buffs for LB fill and cryst rate fill first turn. MP battery turn 2 and 3. Summon Ramuh when gauge is full.

    HT Lid - MP Battery, summon Alex when gauge is full

    Basch - 100% evade/petrify resist. AoE physical cover. I ran this twice and no one else ever got stoned (teehee)

    Celes - Sealing Blade every turn

    Hyoh's - chain Voltage Blade x2 for orbs & LB crysts. No need to dispel. (on first turn, get Leviathan between 81-90%)

    After LBs are full and both Alex and Rumah have been summoned, use Nicky's LB, both Hyoh's Way of the Void. Everyone else continue what they were doing. Next turn, dispel with Nicky (comes with Rumah), Lid LB, Celes can nap, Hyoh's chain Phantom Blade + 2x Voltage Blade (if Hyoh's are strong enough, LB. My first time through, Levi only went to 34% chaining LB tho). Cast Basch's LB right before the lizard dies.

    Easy and 100% safe. Not one health bar on my team went down even 1% :D

    OBAMAed in 7 turns, with a significant amount of overkill from 85%...
    Olive w/ Manufacted Nethicite ftw for me as well. :-0
    Big Willy, Zargabeast (Alexander), and Queen (Ramuh) all with dispel, doing what they each do best.
    2B and friend 2B - chip damage, self buff, chip damage, (poorly) chained LBs.
