I have some questions
1. What level are your characters?
2. License board filled?
3. Which works better, Espers or Quickenings?
4. Any specific spells I should cast/armor to wear/weapons to equip?
Please, I need help before I even get near him.
Your wish is my command.
1. they were all level 99 (I recomend the three areas where you could find Ixion to level up)
2.not all, about 6/8 filled with every character (gold armulets are a real blessing)
3.personally, don't bother. you'll need every bit of MP to heal/revie characters. they will die. .
4.he's weak to dark, so use your best dark spells/weapons on him. I recomend: ninja swords
(the best one if you can get it, but any will do as they all have the dark element), foumalhunt with dark shot and the zodiak spear (VERY high attack power, about +150 attack). As far as armour goes, use the best that you can get. His standerd attack does about 3000HP, but you can't afford to let your HP get below 4000-2000HP. Mainly because when he gets HP critical, he'll use growing threat, doubling his attack power. In this state his special move, Cyclone, hits for about 8000HP+. not fun. bubble belts for is a major big help, as you'll need max HP. If you need to, float helps because the area is rigged with quite a lot of mines, so be carefull where you put your characters. I could give out startergies, but a lot of factors play a part and change things completly, like the growing threat, his instant death move (can't remember the name of it), weapon dmg ect. In short - use dark weapons/magic on it a lot, keep health above 4000-2000HP, be ready for anything using appropriate gambits (have a revivng gambit at the top for everyone, then hp<40%=renew, then whatever you feel appropriate)and come into the fry with lots of essential items like turbo ethers, phionix downs (with all three augments is a extra help), x-potions, elixers and, if you have them, dark motes (for the off-chance that something wrong happens).
Hope that helps. Remember this is an enjurance fight, and could take awhile (I read that if your either really lucky or really good, it could take 2 hours. Otherwise, like me, it could take 5 hours+).
