interestingly, the strategy guide has a couple errors on this fight in particular. it mentions trying to land a Slow debuff on the main body as an opening move, but it is immune until you take out the other parts. it also states he casts doom 'near the very end' of the fight, but it cast it on me when i had him at like 50% and it obviously killed me despite the guide telling me not to worry

Doom seems to be sorta random. The time I did kill him he didn't cast it.

I upgraded Lightning weapon to level 14 so I could kill him a bit faster.

Crazy thing is, the target time for that battle is 10 minutes. It took me 18. No clue how you're supposed to beat him in 10 or under.

edit: perfect conductors are great for leveling an item up. I got Lightning's weapon a 3x multiplier then gave it 6 conductors. It was something like 12,000 points.

dual casting to beat him up

then double medic to heal

switch back and forth

give it 32 items like sturdy bone to get the multiplier up to 3x and then give it as much of the biggest items you can like the conductors or turboprops

i'm on ps3 but afaik 360 is the same. almost all loading is masked by cutscenes, and even if you skip them it's barely any loading. there's no install on ps3 either.

differences are mainly with 360's inferior cutscene video compression and gameplay/cutscene resolution, and i've read reports that 360 framerate problems occur later in the game.

i don't know what i'm doing differently. he just cast doom on me with 1/3 hp left so i bet that kills me again. i fully upgraded axis blade and have everyone lvl 3 in their top two classes.

he casts destructo so often that it eats up a lot of my DPS as i have to bunker down and i can never have enough time for stagger...

Apart from the first stagger I was never able to stagger him again. Even if you DO manage to stagger him, once he shifts into destructo mode it resets the chain counter.

Basically the whole fight was mostly lightning and fang on dps with hope healing. I tried to switch in and out of full heal and full damage but the overall dps of that is probably less than the constant two dps and one heal.

Also once he goes to destructo try to have both fang and lightning damage him for two rounds then shift fang to sentinel and lightning commando and every now and then she'll make him stumble with one of her attacks. Seems to increase the charge time on destructo as well as halving the damage.

does having higher magic stat increase the amount that character can heal others with cure?

just beat chapter 9 boss finally. upgraded a couple weapons and took the training wheels off (stopped using auto attack) so i could make sure i was being most efficient (i notice the AI seems to pick a variety of moves instead of sticking exclusively with what is most effective). didn't even give him time to cast doom on me.
