    Couldn't find an existing post for this new event, so wanted to start one.

    I attempted it with an all physical team, but wasn't very lucky with the 45 level cap. I guess I'll have to put more thought into picking the best dps characters at Lv 45.

    Share your teams, skills, companions, etc.

    All I did was use my strongest spears (Filter --> Spears).

    My team is Clara^, Odin^, Koko^, Samatha^, Kem^, Mac. I didn't really worry about otomos. I have one grand rune on somebody, and a white candle on somebody else. I don't think anyone else even has any otomos (I was very lazy when setting this up).

    Although, now that I'm writing this, it seems obvious that Shinen^ and Mutoh^ would also be good if you equipped their spear attacks. If you're having trouble surviving, Olber/Olber^ also seems like a good choice.

    Pincer him vertically - his sword attack hits laterally, and most spear attacks are column attacks anyway. It shouldn't be too difficult.

    For Gugba 1 I'm using a "randomly" assorted team, with Odin Λ, Camellia Λ, Bahl Λ, Clara Λ, Gegonago Λ and Suoh Λ; I get a Powered Point on the last turn, and with the right companions I get over 200k of damage output on every run.

    Note that Odin will be available in Arena in few hours, and him and his recoded form (Odin Λ) are 2 really powerful free spears, capable to deal x2 damage to Gugba, a sword-type enemy.

    Bahl Λ is the recoded form of the B class gifted to the new players with a 50% chance (the other unit is Grace, a good bow but not as strong as Bahl);
    Gegonago Λ offers me a pleasant stackable Control Time +3 Seconds to all of my units; Palpa Λ is a nice free alternative that works as well.
    Clara Λ is an event character, and Suoh Λ and Camellia Λ are the recoded form of 2 good spears recruitable (and "clearable") by clearing the Pact of Fellowship (look for "Pact of Fellowship" on this page for some good threads about this topic ;)

    Another good unit is Odin Kino Λ, available in Arena only for few more hours and useful for both dealing some damage and clear the "job1 / B class only" challenge.

    I'll write a little more after doing the proper tests :)

    Does this work? I thought Λ units didn't count as Job 1 for the purposes of the challenge.

    Yes it works, to be forbidden are the Recoded characters as the Z class Odin Λ, but Kino and 8-bit ones are just "regular" units with a Lambda in their name (and, therefore, an higher cap for Luck). Anyway, before posting this message I made sure that this worked properly by testing it myself and I got both the rewards for clearing it with a B class (or lower) team and the one for clearing it with a team with units all in all Job 1.

    A little note about my previous post, where I considered these 2 challenges as one only, as I usually clear them on the same run: this isn't true, if you're having difficulties you can use a team of B (or lower) class units in their job 3 form first and a stronger team in their job 1 one later.

    This is true for "Gugba 1" as it is true for other challenges as "Gugba 3" and "Alika 3" (available in a separate, yet similar, event).

    8 Bit Golem, Sorman, Androclops, Macuri, Odin Kino and Raprow.
    I used a Grand Rune, two Runes and one Gungir. Even without them is doable.

    My personal optimal Gugba II team:

    [​IMG]

    I don't have any grand runes, so I have regular runes on Mac, Shin'en, and Odin, and a Chocobo on Clara. The key to get as close to the threshold for Gugba II is to have Mac/Odin first in the double pincer up until the final double pincer.


    For Gugba III, I have the exact same team. The main difference is that you can have Mac/Odin second in the double pincer for the entire fight.
