This one seemed easy at first but the last 25% is really where the true challenge lies as back to back nasty spells/abilities can spell disaster for the trust. If the trust event isn't going on you need to make sure you use Marine Stewpot and Adamantoise Cheer for this strategy to work reliably. Used a pretty bad run as an example to show how to handle all the bad situations. Usual win should take about 20-22 minutes if no issues are encountered. Hope this helps some who are hesitating on trying it. Happy Holidays!

Nice.

Haven't tried this myself, but I'd imagine that DNC sub would be nice so you can keep trust HP up yourself w/ Divine Waltz. Nothing is worse than being at the mercy of trust AI.

And wouldn't Fudo OH be a good choice here, since you're not getting any att buffs?

It wouldnt. You would need to manage all 5 trusts to get hit outside of campaign to split the damage more.

Ulmia, Monberaux, Arciela and Joachim would normally die from 2000 damage.

I dont think you can use Yoran at all for this outside of campaign. Even with cheer and Marine, Yoran probably wont reach 1666HP and Ulmia and Joachim will be around 1770, so there is no way to get away with split the damage to only 5 targets.

EDIT: this one

Out of the trusts campaign maybe you could go with a subjob with a pet to have 1 more target to split the damage with?
Like Carbuncle from SMN, I dunno.

More like there is some item that call some pet if I recall correctly but I forgot what it is.

EDIT: This one

Even then I think that wouldnt be enough. You need 1429HP with 7 targets and with cheer and Marine Yoran has around 1410~1419.

The pet would prolly get killed by its regular AoE attacks anyways from that ring plus the spirit would auto attack and you wouldn't be able to control where it was unless you sub smn and if you did you could just summon it yourself.

I dont think you actually can control it even with /smn. Avatars has logic that force them to auto attack whatever is hitting the master, so he would just keep trying to engage Kyou I think. Also I was thinking about summoning it right at lets say 76% with 2000TP ready and wait until regular tp move, then summon and WS. It would be super tricky tho at lower %, when he starts AoE magic.

I'm going to have to wait and see how this works as your right his HP is only going to be about 1410 but he always has that stoneskin up that eats about 400 damage. So we will have to wait and see if that's possible... but yes it's going to ride the line.

However, we in no way need the trust event to pull off this strategy. All other trust are far above 1666. ideal WHM for this strategy is Ygnas. With him in for Yoran this strategy should work perfectly fine (that's what Lute did) Sadly he's the only trust I dont have... should have him in a few months. So strategy with this trust setup may be quite risky without the event indeed, however with Ygnas it shouldn't be an issue for this strategy.

Berserk really helps this fight along so it will go a bit slower but yes /dnc sub may allow you to top them off before each Bravado. No I don't recommend fudo as the ternion +1 is increasing your WS damage by quite a bit with it's WSD+ and helping your TP gain. It's also allowing you to cap subtle blow.
