Tips[edit | edit source]

  • See testimonials and discussions.
  • To get the 65 chain, setup the two mages to quadcast their CWA skills, wait ~2 seconds after casting them at the same time, and use the 3 other units to do their normal attacks.
  • There is a HP lock at the 1% threshold.
    • It will use Broken Mind, an AoE MP drain, and then kill itself.
