then I got mopped when
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
mech removed restrictions and I wasn't expecting such a big jump in power. :P

For that fight, it's all about staying on top of healing. When you're finally able to stagger it, have Lightning use Army of One 2-3 times, and then switch to something like Agression or Relentless Assault to mob the floor with it. It'll still take a few staggers, but that's usually how I approach that fight.

Buffs help a lot.


SwordStealer is my twin from across the country! ;D

157/160 fragments;  I got Lucky Coin this morning which leaves the bestiary as the only annoying one left (other two are just paradox fights).   Took a break from that to restock--burned a ton of gil on monster materials.

All fragments.   Still need a chunk of Gil,  plenty of monster building etc.   Internet's been acting up a ton so I haven't been able to get to the DLC.

Burned through my stock of Power Crystals so I'm getting more to try and finish Odin.

I'm currently playing a NCU Challenge in XIII. Had a good flow til Chapter 11 (40 hours total til 11), stucked a little at Mission 12 because of my completely undergeard party and nearly no gil to upgrade. But overcome that after a week or so. Well, i played FFXIII in that week 2-3 hours. Wasn't really motivated there.

Now i'm at hour 84 and farmed approximately 13mio Gil. Upgraded some weapons  earlier before with 2,5mio to Tier 2* and want to do a few missions. Before that i will upgrade my HP Bangles to Maximum. 3000+ HP more, makes it a little easier. This one Adamanchelid near the Mahabara Entrance, protecting a Treasure with one Gold Nugget looks interesting, too. Maybe will try him. I Have more than in enough Shrouds anyway. Will update this now and then :).

Continued farming until hour 100 and upgraded my HP Bangles. The Adamanchield was a very funny experience. I made a video of this fight if someone is interested: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJEb1J9yv_8&feature=youtu.be

Mission 15-20 is also done. Next stop: Taejin Tower, yeah.

Taejnn Tower almost done. There's only Dahaka left. I messed up with upgrading and made to many Traps. Now i have not enough Gil left over to use them properly. Farming again.

Have enough Gil after another 15 hours of farming and upgraded Hopes Hawkeye, Fangs Partisan and Sazhs Deneb Duellers to their ultimate form. Dahaka had really no chance in his 2:17 minutes of lifetime against my party. I think, Dahaka even glitched a little. Normally, he does his Diluvial Plague, after he lose 50% of his life. Well, this time he doesn't. He was already at 10% or so after the first stagger, maybe that triggerd the glitch.

Beaten Bart 2 in Oerba in my very first Try in my NCU Challenge. Actually, this was only a try for practice to see how the mechanics and tactic are working.  I was very suprised and a little shocked.

After all the frustration with him along several forums, i expect it much more difficult. Used Snow, Fang and Vanille. All with magic raising weapons. Fang and Vanille kept Slow and Deshell on him with a MAN-MAN-RAV paradigm. This paradigm raised the stagger gauge too. When Bart was staggerd, i switched between COM-RAV-RAV and COM-COM-MED. I used SEN-SEN-MED for his area attacks and for healing.
Basically, that was everything i did. He fall after 8 minutes and 29 seconds.

Ohh, almost forgotten. I summoned Bahamut at his first Apoptosis. In that way, only Fang loses all her buffs, the other two kept them the full time. That was a huge advantage.

XIII-2: still mostly building.

XIII: went back and went to making some more weapons for lulz.

Another Try on Bart 2 in Oerba. The boss was really demolished this time. Battle Time now: 3 minutes and 42 seconds: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1ysMuOaCRQ

Highly satisfying for me, so i can go on now.

Bandersnatch & Jobberwocky (mostly with Shiva), Wladislaus (very easy with RIC and Odin) and Tiamat Eliminator (Firsttry) down. Looking forward to Barthi 3 and Orphan.

Barth 3 done. It was a long fight at first, even with doom counter at the end. But everything works fine now and he loses in approximately 11 min. I struggle at Orphan, what a hell of a boss. Should try some different tactic. I can't make it with only one healer.

Been playing through again, was at the forest place with Lightning and Hope and noticed that the elevators sometimes make the same sound as the M-44 Hammerhead from Mass Effect 2 does when it completes scan.
