    Hello kupo ::mog::

    actually i never found anyone have trouble with this trial...
    just bam bam shoot shoot and win
    but just let me write some pointer for this trial..
    for anyone out-there that still need help or for the future reference for anyone that still haven't beat this trial

    no need to take cover this time, kupo
    just a simple text from me

    10-man trial gimmick

    • the boss have 2 phase, which locked at 50% HP, so you cannot cross more than 50% in phase 1
    • the boss have threshold skill when changing from phase 1 to phase 2
    • ex 1 :
      • your turn -> you deal damage to cross the threshold
      • next enemy turn -> enemy change phase and use threshold skill
    • but you can skip 1 turn if you can cross the threshold with counter
    • ex 2 :
      • your turn -> you deal damage near to enemy threshold
      • next enemy turn -> enemy atk -> and then your unit counter the enemy to cross the threshold -> enemy will change phase after you finish counter without triggering threshold skill
      • your turn (this is your free turn, kupo!!!) -> you better kill the enemy with single blow if possible
      • next enemy turn -> use threshold skill
    • Like usual, kill the main body (second phase) asap
    ::toad:: BOSS GENERAL INFO
    Shaula is bug/spirit
    bug killer can be obtain from golem
    M spirit killer can be obtain from leviathan

    Shaula 100%-50% (first phase)
    have weakness -100% wind resistance
    can be ATK/MAG break
    preemptive strike : use ST magic and ST physical to one enemy (can be provoke using unit with innate draw atk)
    inflict AOE poison, paralyze
    inflict ST petrify
    AOE and ST magic
    AOE and ST physical
    Magic damage with HP and MP drain

    turn 1 preemptive atk
    turn 2 ST magic x1 , ST physical x1 , AOE magic
    turn 3 ST magic x1 , ST physical x3 , AOE physical
    turn 4 ST magic x1 , ST physical x2
    turn 5 ST magic x1 , ST physical x2 , AOE magic
    turn 6 ST magic x1 , ST physical x2
    turn 7 ST magic x1 , ST physical x3 , AOE physical
    turn 8 ST magic x1 , ST physical x1 , AOE magic
    turn 9 ST magic x1 , ST physical x3 , AOE osmose HP MP
    i really recommend to pass the threshold before turn 9 where the boss use osmose

    threshold skill (phase 2) :
    inflict ST charm x2, AOE magic damage , Increase DEF/SPR and reduce own resistance to -100% fire and buff wind +100%
    and summon 2 arm (left and right) -> Both arm can be broken

    turn 1 : threshold skill
    turn 2 : ST Hybrid damage x2 , AOE physical , AOE magic
    turn 3 : ST Hybrid damage x2, reduced ATK/MAG
    turn 4 : ST Hybrid damage x2
    turn 5 : ST Hybrid damage x2, reduced ATK/MAG, AOE physical , AOE magic
    turn 6 : ST Hybrid damage x2
    turn 7 : ST Hybrid damage x2, reduced ATK/MAG
    turn 8 : ST Hybrid damage x2, AOE physical , AOE magic
    and so on

    below 30%, the boss use additional reduce all stat and ST hybrid damage every turn

    and for left arm skill : ST physical every turn
    and for right arm skill : ST magic every turn

    ::toad:: mission :
    evoke tetra esper
    use 5 LB
    defeat less than 30 turns
    easy mission with no kill with LB/esper.. khukhukhu!!

    so how to tackle the boss?

    ::toad:: okay lets see the boss :
    the boss is not immune to magic/physical
    first phase : -100% wind reduction
    second phase : -100% fire reduction and +100% wind resistance
    -> you can bring 2 team, which use wind (aka: barbie and her gang) and fire or just bring fire team (aka hyoh and dragon lord)

    the boss in first phase use status ailment
    -> make sure your whole team for first phase resist to poison and paralyze
    -> make sure your provoke unit have resist petrify

    the boss deal magic and physical AOE and ST attack
    -> you see the boss never use both AOE atk at same turn in first phase, so you can switching your aoe tank, or just brave your team to receive the other damage
    -> bring provoke tank to eat ST damage

    the boss use preemptive strike in first phase
    -> use decoy tank which have 50% innate (+ 50% from equipment will be preferable) ex : marquis de leon / snow / barusa , and put him in first slot
    after the decoy tank dead, raise next turn and save the decoy tank for next threshold

    the boss use threshold skill in second phase
    -> bring additional aoe magic (aka mystea) to tank the threshold AOE magic, you can reraise her or just left her dead and switch her
    -> bring out the decoy tank to tank the charm (or you can use charm protection from lakshmi)

    indeed you require to evoke tetra and do 5 LB, but you can do it later
    -> kill the boss first phase and second phase fast, and leave one arm alive, then you can start bring out your summoner or just auto attack to collect LB and esper orb, even if your tetra doesn't deal damage to the arm due to 100% resist, it still count as evoke tetra esper


    ::toad:: My team / General team
    decoy or main provoke tank for preemptive attack and charm : marquis lvl 101 with 100% draw atk (subs : snow, barusa)
    decoy aoe magic tank : mystea (subs : shylt)
    main tank : basch 100% evade (subs : WOL, wilhelm), WOL and wilhelm can provoke while basch cannot.. ::joy::
    healer : ayaka lvl 101 (subs : LM Fina , rem)
    support : zargy 7* (sub : CG/S. nichol)
    breaker : none (sub : CG lid or any 45% breaker will be enough)
    DD : fire hyoh 7* and orlandu 6* (subs : any fire chainer)
    additional finisher : dragonlord 7* (subs : rinoa triple cast apocalpyse ?)
    marquiz, hyoh, orlandu, basch, zarg, and ayaka all with stat ailment

    first enter the battle :
    1st turn :
    Marquis : dead by preemptive atk
    basch : aoe physical
    ayaka : raise marquis
    zargy : buff
    orlandu : break ATK/MAG

    2nd - until threshold -1 :
    hyoh and orlandu : chain
    basch : aoe physical + break ATK/MAG
    ayaka : heal
    zarg : buff
    my team eat the ST magic damage and AOE magic damage
    you can alternate between buffer with chainer in this phase and bring provoke tank like marquis to eat ST damage if you want

    threshold :
    marquis : defend (will be charm)
    mystea : aoe cover magic
    ayaka : reraise mystea and marquis
    orlandu + hyoh : chain to cross threshold

    after threshold :
    hyoh + orlandu + DL : finish main body
    ayaka : dispelga
    basch : breaker (his aoe cover stay active)
    Rem or LM fina AOE reraise will be helpfull if somehow you cannot OTKO the main body since the boss will use AOE physical and AOE magic in next turn after threshold

    after that
    hyoh, orlandu, ayaka, zarg, basch
    slowly kill the arm to collect LB and esper gauge, make sure don't use hyoh LB or he will kill the arm.. ugh..

    easy boss...
    so which one is easier ?
    shaula or brachium ??

    like usual part 2,
    if you spot mistake, do let me know so i can fix it
    if you want to put another pointer, feel free to comment
    if you want to share you team, its a welcome -> it will inspire new players about team comp for trial.. not just usual hyoh hyoh hyoh, wilhelm wilhelm wilhelm, or orlandu orlandu orlandu.. :D
    if you want to ask question or ask team comp, feel free to comment, i'll do my best to answer

    cheers,
    kupo

    Sadly this is chamber of arms where you cannot bring dupe.. :(
    Other hyoh can be subs by other DR family
    And other shant can be subs with lexa
    Good luck

    Thanks for suggestion
    Yes, his fire and wind splendor is OP
    But since this is 10-man trial which you cannot bring dupe, can you mention other unit that can chain with OK? Need wind/fire imbue or not for other unit?
    I lack knowlegde of OK.. :(

    Nice Syuri! :D
    I did it with this team :
    Preemptive Attack : Barusa(I like using him, he is a hero from another world or game)
    Phase 1 : 7* SBDF, 6* Barbariccia, Awakened Rain, HT Lid, MS Nichol, LM Fina
    Phase 2 : 7* Hyoh, Raegen, Awakened Rain, HT Lid, MS Nichol, LM Fina
    I used A. Rain for both magic cover and provoke, immune to all status ailments.
    ATK break, damage mitigation, and reraise is enough for my team to survive againts AoE physical attack

    ouch,forgot this is an arm chambers.i run this trial blind with
    7*vicktor,OK,TT,Hyoh,M.ramza
    6*Lm.fina,Ms.nichol,citra & loren.
    so thats overkill and im just using OK as solo dps until 49%.

    Sephiroth and Hyoh can chain with OK, among others, but those two are the most prominent.
