Last time on Genius of Sappheiros Let's Play: We're now right before the final boss. I obviously not ready yet to fight the expansion final boss.
So let's take a detour for now and let's fight the other superbosses I haven't fought.
Oh dear, this is gonna suck.
BGM: Boss 2 (Even the BGM tells me this is gonna suck)
But I have to do it if I wanted to make 2nd ultimate weapons.
It's attack (and slayer against EVERYTHING) and speed will guanrateed that it will move first and then uses its all-targeting normal attack twice to overkill everyone for 1000+ damage and may gives physical weakness (overkill much?). Fighting it without any strategy will get you killed in 1 turn. If you look at its stats, you'll notice that it has only 0 RES. So, just debuff it's PATK and go to town. Have Satori unleash Mad Thunder, Pacthouli strengthens ELE power and kill it with thunder, Byakuren to debuff it's PATK and buffs everyone's attacks.
Don't thnk the battle is over once you debuff it's PATK. That thing have Vortex and due to its extremely small moveset, it will use it sooner or later. Have Byakuren buffs everyone's RES including the Terminator itself and hope that it doesn't dispel our buffs and debuffs.
Man, I gotta appreciate Satori more after this. I'm surprised I actually get to reapply ATK debuff after Byakuren buffs it's RES. I'm extremely lucky this time.
Come on game, could you give me more EXP than 65535?
Heck yeah! 2 Super Ajas.
I used it to make Sanae's ultimate weapon because it reduces her cooldown further. Now I can spam Wind of Miracles (EX buff) every turn.
I wanna test how strong it will be if I continually use it. Let's see... let's try buffing our Max HP since it's value is visible to us.
The final boss has 999 damage nuke. Alice has 10k HP. The final boss never stood a chance.
Huh? She can be a good attacker.
Let's grind Yuugi's material for her 2nd ultimate weapon.
Just like the uest told us, the boss can be found in B2 of the Underworld.
BGM: Boss 1
Might vs Might. Giant vs Giant. Titan has 38000 HP, 8000 PDEF, resists all physicals, and weak to earth. The Titan will use very strong strike and earth based attack and are able to inflict PATK down, PDEF down, and Paralysis. Have strike and earth RES, RES up (or alternatively, Paralysis) accesory, and either Sanae or Remilia as commander for healing duty. Then, continue to chuck a huge m-freaking Shuriken at his face since it slays Giant.
An easy fight if you can heal.
Too bad I didn't get a second copy.
Nice nice. Looking pretty good.
Berserker Soul = 8 attacks in a turn. Can you say 8000 x 8 damage in a single turn? And that's not counting her criticals.
Okay, time to face my fear and let's face this...Alien...? Demon...?
BGM: Boss 2
Angel...? I don't know what he's supposed to be. But he's going down!
He may have lower HP than most of the super boss, but his EVA is incredible.
He possesses very strong slash based attack and attacks from every elements (but light) in the game. He's also smart enough to only use attacks for the elements with high Land influence (he won;t use earth based attack if the Land favors thunder).Trying to fight him carelessly will get you killed fast (Or being paralyzed by his Mind Blast).
The strategy is as follows, debuff his ATK and DEF, buffs Sakuya's PATK and ACC, use Sakuya's Vyse Sword.
And go to town.
Overkill much Sakuya? I'm lucky in this fight because I got Sanae's Last Word and I buff it to kingdom come.
2 Obsidians, ready to be converted into very strong armors and weapons.
Since I now have Obsidians, I want to create Gungnir since it is very strong and incredibly useful in sidequest (like Satori's).
I've been witholding myself from trying Remi's sidequest because this quest is luck based without Gungnir.
They are easy to encounter since there's only 2 spawn point for these guys and it always at the entrance of stage 20. Now to get past all those pesky enemies...
BGM: Boss 1
2 strong transcendents versus 1 squishy vampire with Gungnir. Garbangol has 9999 HP, 60 EVA, greatly resists every elements but thunder and weak to thunder and pierce. And Gappuin (tentacle) has only 999 HP, but it has freaking 240 EVA and same resistance and weaknesses like Garbangol.
Your victory solely hinges on succesfully killing Gappuin before it kills you it one hit. And killing Garbangol afterward. The reason I need Gungnir because it has the highest ACC amog all spear.
Needless to say, once I kiled the tentacle robot, curbstomping ensues.
Two Fresh Bloods ripe for consumtion (Or to be converted into Pure Fresh Blood).
Back then, I said I don't ever want to try this quest. But since I have Gungnir, I believe Marisa can take her Yukkuri head on.
It can be found in stage 16, Genbu Lake. So get searchin' and try to avoid the enemies.
BGM: Boss 1
Lesser Darkonium only has 1111 HP, 90 EVA, immunity to all elements and resists all physicals. But you're fighting it with Marisa, our resident magician. It can attack for 150-300 damage, Marisa at best only has 350+ HP. Your victory depends on the fact that it doesn't use the powerful Face Smash...
Or use Medullite Beam. That thing freaking hurts. Maybe someday, I'll learn it.
Or alternatively, there's an easier way to win. And it's called Yata no Kagami and Yasakani no Magatama.
We're allowed to bring full party... She really asking to die.
The entirety of SDM can be scoured in less than 30 minutes. You probably won't have any trouble finding her.
BGM: Boss 1
Flandre has 99000, 105 EVA, greatly resists every elements but mystic and light, resists slash, and weak to light. Like before, she can bombard you with very strong attack and Laevateinn when her HP is low. But now, Reimu can use her light magic without fearing her counter attack.
Same strategy still applies. buff Sakuya PATK, time stop, murder time.
Heck, I could wipe out more than half of her HP in a single Private Square.
Easy peasy, no problem at all.
Now do it 11 more times to make her ultimate weapon.
Glass Cannon formation, perfect if you want to kill things fast, not perfect if you want to live.
I'm running out of superbosses to fight. Looks like we have to fight this demon and boy, this is gong to be really sucks.
BGM: Boss 2
A fucking fuge demon with a little girl? This seems kinda familiar. The Spirit World Challenger has 200000 HP, 900 PDEF, 75 Divine Barrier, resists every element and physical but mystic, and weak to light. Since it is one of the strongest superboss, obviously Byakuren's debuff isn't gonna work on it (75% RES against variety). So, you're only left with Alice and Sanae's buff to defend against its extremely strong mystic, dark, and strike based attack.
That thing has more than 1000 PATK. it's normal attack means one hit kills for you. And it still has Vacuum Wave which can takes out 75% HP from heavily reinforced Alice.
Needless to say, I don't last long against that demon. And I stll haven't mentioned its mystic nuke.
Screw this. Let's get this over with.
BGM: Boss 2
Elder Dragon has 220000 HP, 1400 PDEF, greatly resists all 4 elements and stab, resists slash, and have no weaknesses.
THIRD TIER mystic single target attack!!!!!
Well, that was really quick.
I still needed to kill 1000 more youkai to get the next recipes.
Looks like I have to spend my time grinding for levels and kills.
