    Hey guys, posting this here too in case it's helpful! This boss rush is on the easier side, but it can definitely present some problems if you don't know the gimmicks. The three bosses are:

    1. Demon Chimera (Scorn)
    2. Metal Gigantaur (Scorn)
    3. Giga Rat
    Here's the video of my clear using a budget team (only free equipment, no rainbows except the friend):



    The team I used was:

    1. Snow (geared for 100% resist and passive provoke)
    2. Earth Veritas
    3. Timothy (with some auto-limit gear so his LB was always ready)
    4. Rosa
    5. "friend" Emperor
    6. Last slot left empty, fill it with anything you want
    The status effects you need to deal with are:

    Demon Chimera: ST Paralyze, and AoE Petrify and Poison
    Metal Gigantaur: None (technically Berserk if you do the fight wrong)
    Giga Rat: ST Stop and Disease

    Demon Chimera is a very old trial, so I won't say much about him other than try not to accidentally OTK him before doing your missions.

    The Metal Gigantaur fight is kind of a gimmick battle. As long as you never use an "ability", all he does is 10,000 needles to one unit per turn. Spells, Limits, Items, and Espers are safe. If you use an ability, he's going to start using berserk and 10,000 needles three times per turn instead. Just use Raise each round on the person who got needled and do your missions, then take him out with a magical spell.

    The final encounter is against Giga Rat, which is a new fight for us. He's going to start with three dire rats in the battle, and more will get summoned as the fight continues. The trick to this battle is to never kill any of the small dire rats, and instead focus all single target damage on Giga Rat. If no dire rats have died, Giga Rat will only use a minor AoE physical attack, and an AoE fixed damage meteor (4,242 damage) every third turn, along with ST stop.

    For every Dire Rat that dies, Giga Rat's damage will increase signifcantly, so make sure to avoid any AoE damage until Giga is dead. The small rats will use a ST elemental fixed attack that deals fixed damage. The damage will be either Fire, Lightning, Water, Wind, Earth, or Dark. If your provoker is immune to all 6 of those elements, the Dire Rats can't hurt you at all, so even though they will keep building up as more and more get summoned, just ignore them until after Giga.

    That's basically it! Avoid AoE damage, use a 100% elemental resist provoker, and take the fight safe and slow. Don't forget to break Giga Rat and include a stop immunity buff if your provoker isn't naturally immune.

    damn, this is likely the hardest fight in more than a month.

    great stuff.
    was killing all mini rats on the first turn and getting wiped by the meteor thing.

    73 turns the last fight.

    Couldn't find any Kurasame as chain partner, but I took a SS Nichol as friend unit.

    Could survive easily, but was a damn long fight.

    And I didn't pull any Sieg, but 1st Kid Rydia and 3 E.Shera.

    Perfect guide that even a dunce like me can understand ::up::

    Thanks @Sinzar :)

    2 Loren chaining LB (yes I know there are a zillion better damage options out there, but I like Loren) make the end of the fight look really fun.

    Who else makes a good ST DPS for Giga Rat besides Emperor?

    Tried friend Livid Shantotto and 3x Fire V barely scratches him.

    Also--what breaks is he vulnerable to?

    Vulnerable to all breaks.

    Have you tried ST chainers? I used Loren's Wind ability as it also imperils. Took 7 turns IIRC to kill the big rat. Turns 8 Loren LBs did for the rest.

    2x GLS (Eldritch Flames) and a breaker nearly worked for me.

    Didn't get it last time after 'reload' didn't do what I expected--it took out the baby rats and then big boy got mad and roasted us.

    2x hyoh with non elemental weapons and 2,2k atk needed about 16 turns to get this rat to 1% down, even though it was broken and Hyoh buffed.
    But it was easy if you have 100% resistant provoke tank, it just took time.

    And thanks for the guide, it was very helpful :) great work
