    Ready for the next confirmed trial in Global? Yes, Sleeping Lion is the next trial to come after is Brachiosaur which was confirmed by friends who I know who played JP longer, and @DanT so I feel more inclined to tell you how to beat this trial when it releases so you know what to expect when you guys and gals fight it for the first time.

    How to Access: Sleeping Lion will be the first boss in the Hall of Reborn not in farplane, you do not need any prior bosses to be killed in the farplane to access the Sleeping Lion. From this trial you can select friends to assist you.

    Recommended Units For This Trial:

    Warrior of Light: I recommend him over Vaan cause of higher Defenses, and HP reserves and the fact that team composition is better off with a WoL rather than Vaan trust me you'll see why when I explain Sleeping Lion's attack pattern.

    Vaan: Same reason as WoL for the Full Break, but he comes with Focus which is great to try and tank his meteor threshold attacks. And help your healers heal for more HP.

    Garnet / Lenna: Both of them would be good healers to use for this trial, Garnet gets a slightly higher niche cause she has Raise which allows to help you if any emergency mishaps happen to save your team. Meanwhile, Lenna has Cheer which will be helping your DPS team from your attackers in taking down Sleeping Lion faster.

    Artemios: I actually nominate him cause of his innate Beast Slayer that he has which can come a long way if he gets to be equipped right also he has Barrage which is gonna be the better source of damage for this fight.

    Celes: If you do end up running mages, strong suggestion that you do not do so. You want Celes in your team for a very important reason which will be explained later on.

    Other Great Choices:
    - Bartz (Barrage)
    - Cloud of Darkness (Barrage)
    - Firion (Innate Beast Slayer)
    - Salamander (Tank)
    - Duane (Status Debuff)
    - Fina (Healer + Cheer)
    - Chizuru (Barrage)



    [​IMG]
    Sleeping Lion
    HP: 230,000 | MP: 220
    Weaknesses: None | Resistances: None
    Aliments: Immune to All Aliments
    Attack Cycle: 3-4
    Threshold: 50% HP & 10% HP.
    Attacks:
    - Go To Sleep: DEF +20% and goes to sleep for 3 turns.
    - Sleeping: Does Nothing user is asleep.
    - Meteor (Treshold) : +300% AoE +25% Ignore SPR
    - Waking Up: User wakes up.

    How to Beat: The whole fight, Sleeping Lion will rotate from going to sleep to waking up, I strongly recommend you do NOT bring any mages if you don't have Celes if any magic is used while he is asleep it will trigger him to do Meteor automatically even without use of Treshold, some MAG spells can avoid this like Kefka's Hyperdrive, which is classified as a ability, and not a magic spell. Sleeping Lion only (if you use a melee team like I am suggesting), will wake up, and attack you twice and go back to sleep. There's nothing not to dangerous about him besides him thresholds when he sleeps you can heal + guard your teammates to keep the HP healed high enough so you don't have to cycle through healing so much. But, if you mainly focus him down with melee attacks he will do nothing but attack x2 and be done with his phase. On his thresholds 50% & 10% he will only do Meteor and not attack at all after. So, you can send a unit to knock him down to threshold, and guard everyone else to get lesser causalities in the fight. If you got the right kind of buff support in moves like Cheer, Focus, and Full Break then you might not need to worry as much. But, this fight is real simple if using Melee squads just watch for the thresholds.

    Award: Enchance Sword: [Sword]: +82 ATK, +23 MAG

    My Exdeath can spend his yearly holiday in this fight.
    Vaan / CoD / Cecil / Firion / Fina + some random phys attacker friend should do the trick.

    Wow now THATS a fine sword I must say! Battle seems fairly simple...too bad I dont have any other good DPS units to swap for Exdeath and/or Rain...currently leveling my Bartz. Hes 60-ish so yep...still a long way to go. Is this an even fight or is it just a monster that appears in farplane after chimera?

    hmm.. seems a very tricky fight.. the sleeps, if you use magic, he will cast meteor. if you attack with physical damage, he will wake up and attack 2x. So, basically, buff/debuff then attack then heal strategy.

    Isn't Celes's skill still bugged though? The one that absorbs magic.

    I have Garland and Chizuru (although you don't mention this 2), they are very good for damage. Then Fina and Tellah for cura and Duane for debuff. Im confidence it will not be hard.
    This sword will be very good for my Garland, and i will give his Murasame to Chizuru.

    This trial will be available this month?

    Man, feel sad when hear WoL name :(

    I think my team will have problem for sure because I have no tank and lack of physical unit. I think I have to max Bartz quickly.

    Now my team is chizu vaan tella 2xkefka. I will replace one kefa with bartz and use some help from friend unit.

    Replace Tellah and add a good healer. Fina, Roselia OR Lenna will do just fine ;)

    At least I have Leo + Vaan ^^

    Leo as tank, Vaan for hyperdrive support and full break, Bartz Barrage, Lenna Physical Defense + Offense support and of course healing.

    Kefka Hyperdrive and if the Lion shows reaction switch to Artemios :)

    People keep mentioning friend units but don't forget.... you cant use friends. This is a trial you walk into so it is your team alone first time around. So don't count on a friend to save the day. I look forward to this fight. The sword looks good and I cant wait. I got two great teams that could easily handle it.
    1st team
    Chizuru, CoD, WoL, Lenna, and Kefka/Garland.
    2nd team
    Chizuru, Chizuru, Vaan, Lenna, and Kefka/CoD (trip barrage for the win)

    You can use friends for this trial, this isn't one from the farplane. This one is vortex, and requires energy.

    Read the second line.

    Why Chizuru is not one of the recommended units for this fight? The best dps we have right now.
