Gameplay "Midgar Zolom"
- My stream viewers had a bet if I could beat it (when you can first fight it) and get the E.Skill "Beta". Took a few tries but finally got the pattern and timing down! Woot!
I used Elemental + Fire on Cloud's armor to give him fire damage reduction against Beta, plus he had the most HP too.
There are a few patterns that must be done before Midgar Zolom will use Beta:
01- Get his HP low to trigger #02
02- Force him to stand up by attacking him (when low HP%)
03- After a certain amount of HP% left (and him standing up), he will knock away the last person to hit him out of the battle (in this case it was Tifa).
04- After a certain amount of HP% left and #03, he will counter any attack against him with Beta.. BUT will auto-attack directly afterwards.
The only way to survive after Beta is either hope Poison kills him off or you use your Limit to interrupt his "auto-attack" turn.
The ONLY way Limit will be successful is if you input it right when Beta is triggered, if you input it afterwards, it'll be too late and Midgar Zolom will kill you (Cloud in my case).
Yea, this is old school (and probably there are better tactics) to majority of you (But not me since I just played this).. still it was pretty cool.
I had Fury up because any attack pretty much gives me Limit (Healing Wind spam ftw).
Funny enough you can easily kill Midgar Zolom without being close to being killed if you just poison him and NOT attack him. He'll die from poison while dealing single-target damage (easily healed) with no "knock-character-out-of-battle"
