    Greetings,
    This is my first guide on this forum. And some may know about this strat already, but I thought it would help new comers or fresh players but also some veterans who may scratch their head around the tricky parts of Antonella+ .

    With this batch of enhancement, a unit can replace Zargatrash, Ayaka.

    This guide is has several key required components:
    The 1st one is having a unit which more than often looked upon and laughed at (especially in chat) : Zargabaath
    Can be replaced by a more valuable and commonly used healer : Ayaka.
    Also Rena can fit in instead of Zarga/buffer. her Esunaga skill has stop detach and she's an awesome buffer.
    Another requirement for this strat is HT Lid or Rico Rodriguez or Prompto
    And lastly Lakshmi 3* with charming protection unlocked.
    I know it starts to add up, but never said this guide was a budget one :D

    Team
    1. Provoke tank able to AoE cover physical. recommended is Wilhelm 7* for that role, but evade Basch (Moogle plushie/Golem) or evade WoL may do.
    2. Breaker that deals damage when breaking. Ideally Atk/mag. HT Lid is the best suited for that. Rico Rodriguez works nicely too, though 5% weaker. ANd lastly Prompto has same breaks as HT Lid, the main drawback is that it has a 50% provoke attached to hit, so be careful.
    3. eZargatrash. His kit as a support his meh, his kit as a DPS is meh. And his enhancements are meh. Especially if you compare him to Maritime Strategist Nichol. 100% all stat buff? a 4* base do better! Sure. It also add a resistance to paralyse, blind, confusion and disease (which if you lack some ribbon can be useful against Antenolla) But Archadian Light enhanced to +2 add an AoE 100% Stop resistance to the mix. Cherry on the cake here. If using Ayaka, replace eZargatrash by a better support, like MS Nichol or Roy.
    4. Healer with dispelga. The healing power isn't much relevant, what matters here is the Dispelga. Eiko, Ayaka, LM Fina are the best suited for this. With a favour for Eiko since she'll can dispell the stats debuff Antenolla inflicts. Rosa can work too if you don't have the Goddesses. Or CKA or Tilith can work as well. Reraise is a bonus, especially if you go with an evade tank. If using Ayaka, have Stop Detach enhanced to +2.
    5. 2 DPS. Ifrit 3* with plant killer+ unlocked is a must have on both DPS. Also, Hyrbid DPS are pretty suited for this, Fryevia and Kunshira FTW. Lila works nicely as well (Elementless!).

    Equip
    For info, Antenolla inflicts several status ailment, but NOT petrify. so gear up accordingly.
    Best is to Ribbon (or equivalent) them all, or just match what Archadian Light+2 doesn't cover.
    Seed of hope from SOA raid cover everything needed for Wilhelm, for example.

    Tank
    • wilhelm go HP/DEF, bit of water/earth/wind resist if you can. Lakshmi as esper
    • WoL. Evade, bit of earth/water/wind or much SPR if you can. Lakshmi as esper
    • Basch. Evade + moogle plushie, he's the least suited for this, as he needs Golem to provoke, meaning he'll have a weakness to wind. And Lakshmi will have to be on Zargabaath or your support.
    Breaker
    • HP/SPR.
    • DW Necro dagger/wind weapon. If you don't have necro dagger (I don't have it). Use a Fire weapon. and put dark on Wilhelm (counters). Wind and fire are the most important to seal. Fire covers you from Snort Wind from AoE MP Drain.
    • Siren esper
    eZargatrash/support
    • HP/SPR.
    • A dark weapon (he has counters)
    • bahamuth esper
    Healer/ayaka
    • HP/SPR.
    • Leviathan esper
    DPS
    • Ifrit 3* Esper with Plant killer+
    • If hybrid plant killer materia

    Fight
    Antenolla start the fight Physical immune.

    Ivy (Antenolla D) is the one doing the ST Stop
    Antenolla only do her AoE charm when she's immune to magic > so starting from turn 5 using the in game turn count)
    • Tank : start with Cover physical, then provoke, then charm resist from Lakshmi. and keep rotating that way. if using basch.. Guard on 3rd turn.
    • Breaker : ATK/MAG AoE break. then DEF/SPR AoE break. Repeat. use LB whenever is up. (except for Rico, keep breaking)
    • eZargatrash : 1st turn Archadian Light+2. if you should have noticed it lasts 4 turns. So when Antenolla change her immunity, it means you can recast it. On other turn, I highly recommend to enhance Rejuvenate to +2. As it will help your provoke tank sustaining his MP since he'll be drained, while also adding a reraise on. If you have Basch tank, on 2nd turn use charm resist from Lakshmi. On have free turns, use his All element resist, only 40% but will help cover the magic nukes.
    • Healer : on 1st turn and every 4 turn, dispelga to remove Antenolla buffs. Of course do it before breaking with HT Lid. Else put some reraise on DPS, or help MP refresh. Or heal.
    • DPS : they chain the small parts, one at a time.
    • Ayaka : use her stop detach+2 on turn 1. Buff with your support.
    Order of killing : Antenolla D > C > B > A
    D first because she does an AoE 60% debuff on your team. if you have Eiko you can dispel it, but it can be annoying.
    C because she's the one doing the 2Mil AoE healing when magical immune.
    B because Flower has to be killed last.
    A gotta win at some point, no?

    Fryevia ice is resisted by some of the parts, but she has a 75% imperil, so she'll go through always. Kunshira can hit almost every weakness of them.
    For Lila you'll have to use her imbue skill to hit some of the non-elemental immune plants (B and C). Fire for B. Thunder for C. Also, her skills count as physical attacks despite being magic damage. So they'll be resisted when the plant is physical immune. use that time to buff herself, imbue and use her Neidan right before the plant change immunity for tri-cast on Heaven Shift.


    WARNING!
    Once you killed them all, nuke down the Flower. But she has 40% HP threshold that can be deadly.
    She'll buff herself, and nuke your party with magic.
    Prepare yourself for it (reraise/mitigation, etc) before crossing that threshold.
    After that, it's a 1/2 turn finish depending on your DPS.

    So if you have an Zargatrash laying around, you drained his TMR and this he's.. trash. here is his glory time, he compact several roles to one, buffer and status resist + mp battery + reraise, which is very much needed for this fight.

    Good luck with you tries!

    EDIT : please comment to help me improve this guide.

    I just want to be the first to say this...

    All praise the prophet Zarg. He has come on the advent of 7* to show us the way.

    Gratz @Resnesky

    Well, so long as you have breaks and status resist.. it is kinda easy yes. the tricky part is you need charm AND stop + seal element.

    Well, already remade the guide with Ayaka's enhancements. So if you have ayaka with her stop detach+2. you can use her and some other buffer.

    Almost made it but, since my friend's Fryevia had no sleep immunity I couldn't do damage fast enough to survive the last threshold. I'll try later with Dark Fina instead of Fryevia.

    Good write-up, I wasn’t sure how to get around all the requirements for elemental damage and the boss’ elemental resists when initially trying to look things over. I’d completely spaced being able to deal said damage with an AoE breaker. I missed the wind damage seals and mission because I gave Wilhelm the wrong Zwill Crossblade. Oops...

    I took 7* Wilhelm, Lid, Fina, and eZarg since I’d already enhanced him before I pulled my first Nichol. Hyoh, not too surprisingly, makes a general joke out of the offensive portions of this trial - just sit back and regen your MP during the physical resist turns.

    Finally done it after weeks of lazyness...

    Dont have Lid so had to replace her with Rico rOPriguez, dont have Zargaboob so had to replace boob with Rena. Worked well since Rena have stop cure and magic mitigation which help ALOT. The rest are WoL, Fina and 2 Hyoh (Solly Hyoh).

    Defeat it at turn 28 with LB chaining from Hyoh.

    Thanks for the write-up, Res, god be with you :D
