Played VP2 3 times
My normal game was whatever
First crystal run: an archer game (Sha-kon, Phyress, Millidia, Lwyn)
A rather complex game where I abused the elemental SS. Everyone in this team has the 2 best fire based shot and a wisp except Lwyn which is a light fighter but has all 3 throw moves.
- Elemental bows on the archer and elemental sword on Lwyn (Levantine end game)
- Double ranged damage SS + 120% elemental damage + usual other damage SS and -100% resist fire on the enemy SS
- Last SG boss is immune to fire... so that sucked majorly
- Overall, very hard game that was more gimmicky than anything else. Still ends up stronger than my whatever first game, but harsh on a crystal run.
Second crystal run: heavy fighter game (Dylan, Kraad, Zunde, Adonis)
Basically, anyone with Sweep Dive + Dylan. This game was so easy, it was ridiculous. Heavy fighters are retardedly strong and a team of 4 of them will massacre anything even on a 2 crystal game. Start with Dylan doing Full Swing to launch the enemy in the air, then just do Sweep Dive x3 to BOUNCE THE ENEMY FOR A GOLD GEM 3 TIMES. Use regained AP to sweep dive that shit some more and get even more gold gems until out of AP. No boss will survive more than one round, including the SG.
