So after alot of work I managed to get the Mascot Dress Sphere (go me!). I also had an AP egg so getting the ribbon ability for all three girls was about an hours work (Via Infinito, tun into alot of Jumbo Cactuars 42ap per fight, given that you kill the little ones too).

All these strategies I somehow managed to think of myself *pat on the back*. Also, I like to tell about my game experiences.

So on my way down into the maze, I came across several interesting enemies. One of them was the Concherer. Damn he was actually piss easy (3 maxed Berserkers with whatever asseccories) and a couple of Phoenix Downs was all you really needed.

Then I came across Chac. Holy shit, I was about to give up playing the game when I finally got a little bit of luck trying to beat him. His Petrify-who-ignores-even-ribbons pissed me off royally. 2 Gunners and one Berserker is what did it in the end. Everyone needs Auto-Haste really, the Gunners Cat Nips and the Berserker Ragnarok and the Garment Grid that gives you Auto-Life by passing through the green icon. Auto-Life casted on Berserker and make her use Mega-Phoenix, then go Trigger Happy. He was dubbed the most annoying boss from the game.

Then Paragon. He looked more impressive then he was really. He did get me two times but I was just trying to figure out his attacks and strenghts and stuff. So I won with not too much effort.

Then Trema. I was excited!

Wouldn't you be? I mean, he's the boss of bosses (well he can control other fiends so the boss of bosses would be right). First time he cast Ultima, I wasn't happy. Later I discovered he has only 999mp, so I used one Soul Spring. I think I almost cried at how ridiculously easy he then becomes. The only thing this fight takes is: time. 15 minutes or so? My Mascots were hitting him for about 400 per hit. That didn't do. So I had Paine use her super Cactuar Attack and had Yuna restore her MP with Moogle Jolt. Rikku was using some Bushido ability which does more damage as you defeat more enemies, which worked really well and hit for about 4000.

After I won, it didn't really feel like a victory. Sure I was excited to win the Iron Duke, but if this was the hardest the game had to offer, I was really disapointed.

I finished the game for a 100%, did every mini game, found/aquired any asseccory in the game and only have one more thing to do: See every fiend in oversoul state. But Trema was just a big let down. =(

Yeah, I agree. Trema isn't hard at all if you use a good strategy.

I thought I was going to die immediately when I first entered the battle. But after ten minutes, Trema went down! I was disappointed too. I thought this battle will be like FFVIII's Omega Weapon or FFX's final arena monster(forgot the name :( )

Nemesis? You probably mean Penance. Yeah, and Trema wasn't exactly what I expected either. His attacks weren't bad at all, and the Soul Spring trick is pretty crazy, too. In fact, I had less trouble with Trema than I had with Chac.

Actually, Chac is easy. Well, he's easy if you cheat him. :D Lady Luck/Random Reels/777 CONGRATS! anyone?

I went through the latter half of the Via Infinito with break damage on Yuna and Paine so their uber skills (Moogle Beam and that cactuar skill respectively) made short work of most things. Add that to the soul spring trick and much disappointment against Trema...

lol and I thought the final boss in ffx was a dissapointment.

Trema isn't the last boss of FFX-2. If you thought he was and see him as disappointing, boy are you in for a disappointment when you face Shuyin. :(

02-22-2007, 11:32 PM
Shuyin is a joke of a boss. FFX-2's Yu Yevon --- the only difference being that you're not granted invincibility for the battle. Not that you ever should need it --- if you can't defeat Shuyin, then you should shake your head in shame.

See, the fact that the final boss battles (I include the Vegnagun battles) suck so horribly, is that you go out for a challenge in the game.

I can understand the Cloister of Via Infinito where all the most powerfull Fiends are being held. WHat I didn't really get is the Azi Dahki (I think that's what he's called?) is guarding Vegnagun. (You battle them when you walk through the huge circle without playing the keyboard). They are a great deal stronger then Vegnagun, so it made me question wether Vegnagun was really that much of a threat.
