    Now that im finally done leveling everything i can focus on just dropping shin as fast as i can to drain stamina/CT farming.

    Current Team

    S'naip^ 100L/100SB (Holy Bow of Genji)
    Physical dmg 1.5
    Terrabow
    Attack 10% self
    Tail spin

    Ginny^ 100L/50Sb (Peyrna Sword)
    Petabow
    Terabow
    Gigabow Ring
    Megabow Area

    Gatz^ 100L/100SB (Chocobo)
    Attack 10% equip
    Leech Blade
    Gigasword
    Megasword

    Bahl^ 100L/100SB (Holy Bow of Genji)
    Physical dmg 1.5
    Terrasword
    Attack 10% self
    Gigasword

    Nazuna^ 100L/50SB (Nazuna 0)
    Control Time +2
    Beaks of Agony
    Sharp Beaks
    Frequency +20%

    Peyrna (100L/10SB (Chocobo)
    Augment Magic
    Augment Attack
    Attack 10% equip
    Crushing Blade

    As you can see in the Video you dont even need to triple pincer on turn 1 using this setup.

    Does anyone know of a Better Faster method?

    Perfect. I figured it was possible now but since i only have 1 Peyrna Sword, my dps comes up short

    Actually I am curious if that even helps. 7 taps will get you the maximum multiplier anyway, so wouldn't that render any multiplier companions useless? Better equip Grand Petas?

    Minidra gives "Physical Damage" buff which is a separate from "Attack" buff given by augments.

    This is incredible.

    And harder than it looks! I couldn’t manage to get two characters to the top without getting caught on Shin’en or messing up the position of the bottom two by accident. It would’ve been great to reduce my Shin’en run times but my fingers are too slow alas.

    hum. impressive.
    I don't have exactly this team, but i got the main Damage Dealer :

    do you think that the 2nd minidra can be replaced by other thing, like grand peta ?
    do you think that we loose too much damage replacing nazuna by mizell^ ?

    Anyway, i think i really need to SB Ginny, she really add some pretty damages

    OK, when I recorded the first video, I fully expect it to be viewed as an useless trivia.
    The fact it requires not only highly specific rare characters and companions setup, but also (like @Aexact said) demanding player skill just to save one turn on Shen'en Λ is rather silly. I told myself, surely no one would want to try this on their own, let alone thinking of doing it regularly, right?;)

    Anyway, seeing that there're some interest in this method, I feel I should update my post to make OTK more "accessible."
    First of all, the previous setup is inconsistent. Depends on how many Berserker hits landed on the left mob, whether Sword of Valor crits or not, and general damage RNG, Shen'en Λ might survive with a sliver of health. To increase burst damage, I suggest changing the setup to the following:
    [​IMG]

    All the attack + buff are switched to attack skills for obvious reason. Zafitte Λ replaces Schweiz for teeny-tiny bit higher physical attack, de..definitely not for the eye candy. No, I swear to the Goddess of Lolita.
    I have not seem Shen'en Λ survived past turn one using this team myself. Fingers Crossed.

    Short answer: Yes.
    Long(er) answer: I've equipped grand peta, peta, and even earth sword on Gatz Λ with all of them worked. Only when I equip nothing on him the result become inconsistent. Although I didn't test any of these thoroughly by any stretch, I like to say a 2nd Minidra is not required.

    This is harder to give a clear answer, without Nazuna Λ you'll be missing both her birds (2x + 4x physical) attack and Zafitte Λ's base chain attack via extend chain. On top of that, if you also don't have 2nd Minidra, it's save to say one turn Shin'en Λ is out of reach for you right now.

    What? You're asking IF you do have a 2nd Minidra but no Nazuna Λ, can you do it with Mizell Λ?
    Well, you're in luck. Cause I have just the right video for you.

    The opening move is slightly harder (for me at least), but it's definitely doable.
    Oh, and pay no attention to the video title and description please:p.

    You know, when/if Ma'curi Λ finally happened, none of these Minidra and Nazuna Λ vs Mizell Λ discussion will matter anymore. I can't wait to see Shin'en Λ crumble to his knees knowing he don't stand a chance. One day. It'll happen. Perhaps.

    To my fellow (extremely bored) Terra Battlers.
