    so right off the bat, this is not my strategy, all credit goes to spiff and yorguen! thanx so much guys! i watched their video and spent a month trying to replicate and refine their method for my units. and yesterday i finally pulled it off! i didn't see this strat anywhere on the forums and and wanted to share.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------8<-------

    so i actually beat the moon 3 times yesterday xD

    a few hours after my initial clear, i made a video using the exact same team and strategy again. i used wilhelm and soleil, just like the original video. but i lack ace so i had to use seven (5% less fire imperil). as well as lexa and friend barb with my dragonlord using the leviathan esper.



    this was great and all, but i wanted to see if i could do the same thing w/ two lexas. my 2nd one isnt fully potted, and neither of them are over 1000 magic. friend dragonlord had a bit more magic than mine did in the 1st vid



    sorry for the awful audio on this 2nd vid!

    anyhow, they both worked out and i had some fun ;D

    as i said, it took me a month to get my units ready for this trial (tmr's, enhancements, espers, etc). after all the attempts i think these are the minimum requirements to clear this trial using this 3TKO strat:

    • wilhelm
      • minimum 11000 hp
      • bushido freedom
      • mechanical heart
      • golem esper (provoke)
      • impregnable+2
      • protector+2
    • seven / ace
      • elemental slash+2 / tri-beam laser+2
      • carbuncle esper (banish)
      • dual cast
      • biora, blizzard, stone materias
    • soleil
      • all dances enhanced+2
    • dragonlord
      • minimum 1025 magic
      • kafrizzle+2
    • 2x lexa / barb (or some combo of the two)
      • minimum 850 magic each
    and the final requirement is **spark chaining your two tornado aeroja mages and capping them with kafrizzle**.

    since i'm using seven's 70% fire imperil, i thought gearing my mages was gonna be the most difficult/important part. but it was actually making wilhelm tanky enough to survive every turn that was the most challenging (besides getting the chaining down properly).

    anyhow, i just wanted to share my findings having played around with this setup for a whole month. someone in the original thread on reddit said they did it w/ 2x shantotto with dragonlord using alterna on turn 2. but i lack noctis/rol so i couldn't test this setup. i hope this helps someone else take down that bloody moon!

    That is called : taking the moon from 100% to 0% in one turn, with the aoe chain (or finisher) killing the apostle. A good old strategy, around since the beginning as it has the good point of skipping the hard part 2, but that was rather hard to pull off when the trial was released. Congrats and interesting setup for people (I hope) :)

    If I have a 100% evade provoke tank would that replace Wilhelm in this build?

    if you can fit bushido freedom on them i don't see why not. willy's only there to provoke and soak up all the damage on turns 1 and 2 then to dispel the moon's spirit buffs on the final nuke turn.

    I presume one can swap Soleil for CG Nicol? I never finished enhancing mine, as I pulled Ramza & started using him instead.

    100%! ms nichol is a direct upgrade to soleil w/o a need for any enhancements. you'll actually have better results (his buffs are better all around).
    but sadly i've not been able to pull him (i got no good jake and lightning #2 as my rainbows on his banner T_T maybe i'll have better luck on this cg only banner #3)

    Cool, just wondered whether I needed the debuffs from Soleil's dances for anything.

    Hmmm...

    I actually have the units and gear for this, minus Dragonlord who I can always ask a friend for.

    I should be spending my time actually finishing content instead of one-shotting a boss I've already smashed. Tempting, though. ::think::

    I got two Barbs that can break 1K a piece, so they should be OK damage-wise. Just need a Dragonlord friend & I'm good to go.

    I could use a Dragonlord friend set up for this trial. If anyone can assist please let me know. I tried using some of my CG Sakura friends using fully stacked QFT (15x mods times 2 which is equal to DL's Kafrizzle+2) with an Olive imperil (-75% Lightning) and it didn't work for some reason. Got to like 28% but not enough to OTKO.

    Would a Dragonlord with 980+ MAG, demon banisher, and Leviathan with killers be able to do this?

    If I remembered correctly, I used 940+ MAG Dragonlord with Leviathan's M Spirit Killer, 1 Spirit Magician materia, coupled with CG Nichol's Soulful Stance, Ace's Tri Beam Laser +2 for -75% fire imperil and successfully OTKO Bloody Moon.
    I used LMS as tank, my own eTT with 1k Mag, and eTT friend with 1.2k MAG as chainers.
    I forgot to dispel its SPR buff, but those eTT took care of it easily.
