    Damn you @Sinzar, you're so lazy ::ink::

    @Memel0rd trying to take over as the new Newsl0rd... feels wrong to me. Much better to see the Sieg review :p

    I was just trying to make thes news threads myself when I realised I a) could not post a thread in News and b) was beaten to it by... oh they've vanished ::raegen::

    Hah, I have my budget team ready to go for the boss rush. Just a matter of Gumi turning it on, and I'll have the guide and video up an hour or so later!

    Just as an early sneak peak, the bonus stage is:

    Demon Chimera (scorn)
    - Deal Water/Wind/Earth Damage
    - No Items
    - Kill Chimera w/ LB

    Giant Cactuar
    - Summon Esper
    - 2+ LBs
    - Kill Boss w/ Magic

    Gigarat
    - 3+ Fire Damage
    - No Items
    - Kill Gigarat w/ Esper

    Demon Chimera and Giant Cactuar are ancient trial bosses and are totally trivial. Giga rat is a new fight for global and he's the only challenge of the bonus stage. Some tips:

    Beast race, All breaks work.
    Gigarat is weak to fire, and very tanky.
    Starts with 3 baby rats, and summons more as the fight goes on.

    Don't kill the small rats until Giga rat is dead.
    Small rats do fire, thunder, water, wind, earth, and dark fixed damage fixed attacks.
    Use a provoker with immunity to those elements to handle the baby rats.

    There's also ST stop and AoE phys during gigarat. Gigarat will do AoE 4242 fixed damage every third turn, but it gets much stronger for every rat that dies. If even one baby rat dies, Gigarat's AoE damage ramps up to the point you might not be able to survive, and if two baby rats die before Gigarat.... just don't do it!

    Overall Gigarat isnt too bad, just bring single target fire chainers and blow him up, then clean up the small rats. Or for those super geared players, blow it all up turn one ;)

    Sounds like a job for your favorite fire mage. ::rudecat14::
    I also got a 2nd copy of him recently and awakened him.

    Didn't we already see Gigarat somewhere? Probably a weaker version. Or I saw the future ::think::

    One of the Raid bosses? Have to search @Carnefix's old News threads.

    Oh, yeah, she's awesome. I figured he meant Emperor, because he said fire mage (TT can use non-elemental and dark attacks too).
    If the other two battles are easy enough, maybe taking two Hyohs and OTKing the rat with two LBs + a massive break + dual Fire from Below is possible? I guess Dragonlord would be better for a OTK.

    That's the reason why I was not that happy about Emperor. But he is good in long fights compared to my 7* DL and has additional supportive skills even if it is for himself.
