OK, I know there are a number of threads on this subject, but they're either (a) too old, or (b) not suitable for what I wanted to ask/talk about.|
Basically, I'm around 30 hours in, have got everyone around level 24-26, and am trying to take on Big Joe. I'm using Jr. as primary attacker, with Shion behind him (for Dandyism). I've also got KOS-MOS on the side to absorb damage and chip away for 100 damage a turn with R-DRILL.
Anyway, I reckon I have a strategy sussed out, but I wanted some advice from the forum. I have Jr. equipped with Bravesoul and Double Buster, with Last Symphony and Prelude to Battle on HI slots. Shion just heals with Medica-All and Medica-Rest, and as I said, KOS-MOS is mainly backup healer and Down Force and Down Ether to counter Joe's power-up attacks.
My plan is basically to cast Dandyism on Jr. immediately as a safety net, then get Shion to cast Safety Level on him so he can survive on 1HP, then use a Hemlock to drop him to 1HP and power-up his Bravesoul. I can guard one turn (or use Boost 1) and have him unleash two Tech Attacks a turn for around 2500 damage.
My first question is to ask how long Safety Level lasts (and can I recast it)? My second question is basically to see if anyone can either pick holes in my strategy, or suggest something better (like wait till you hit level 30!).
The one thing I can think of to improve this - though I don't have the skill points to do it yet - would be to extract the skill from the Commander's Crest and equip that on Jr. so he doesn't have to Guard or have Shion boost him. Open to debate! ^_^
