Hello fellow players,
I finally am building enough of a team that can throw down with raid battles, particularly on Extreme difficulty. I just have to watch things on the screen and figure out estimates. Me, I go with whatever any boss/monster throw at my team. That's very generic of me, lol. You would know by that time, I would go with usually party oriented characters. Most specialized characters like attacks, would be difficult for me to manage maintaining. People like to talk about break assassins too, but from what I observe, break time periods doesn't take too long. Figures that you need a mode booster and overdrive reducer to get as many break periods as possible. I don't know, either normal/overdrive mode can be real hell. Most of the turns involves you fight the normal mode anyways.
However, I am not talking about strategies and things like that. I can hum along the battle, but it's usually takes about 45 minutes to a hour. Wished I go faster, but at this rate, I'm glad I can take on chunks (over 90%) or all of the boss's health down. And I don't care about elemental strengths/weaknesses, because that alone is not enough.
As the topic title asks, how do you guys go fast in soloing event raid battles? Is farming for coop items before events possible? Any feedback is encouraged.
