Rinoa Event

The Japanese Server introduced the synergy system together with this event. With proper synergy weapons, this event isn’t really difficult. For the Hard(Ex) mode, since the global version had the event released earlier, I’m not sure if they’ve made any changes. However I do think that DeNA is trying to milk players from this event.

Event Objective

To complete all 10 stages and reveal the Assassination Plan of Sorceress Edea. Challenge the Elite Mode for more rewards1

Reward Highlights

Unlike previous events, you’ll only be able to acquire Rinoa by completing the last stage of the event dungeon.

Preparations

Level Requirement: 25-30 (Not a very difficult event)
Level Requirement Elite Mode : 50

– Use your Synergy Gear to breeze through this event.
– Prepare Stona/Esuna and equip Jeweled Ring to your healer.
Holy and Biora for Special Clear Conditions
– Retaliate Meta works well here Since Edea does not have any Elemental weakness.

Elite Mode:
– Hone all your abilities to as high as possible especially those for your Retaliate Meta
– Hone your Stona and equip your Jeweled Ring
Power Break and Defense Break is your best friend
– Dia, Slow and Holy
– Retaliate Meta may not work well here as you will need lots of supporting skills to survive the Hard mode
– Consider bringing 2 healers
– You may need to spend your Mythrils if you don’t have a good team and natural 5* gears.

 

Floor Guides (Normal):

You should be able to breeze through the first 6 levels of the dungeon easily with a level 20ish team.

Elite Mode

Total Stamina Required : 495
Everything in this Dungeon have tons of HP and if you’re not prepared, don’t bother wasting your stamina. It is difficult to clear this mode with 2-3* weapons even when fully upgraded.
For Master Clear with Stages with Boss fight, be prepared to spend Mythrils if you do not have 5* Weapons. As the HP of the mobs are high, it may require 2 turns to kill them thus bringing down your score to Expert or even Good. To counter that, you will need to use your abilities early to get a good Score for the thrash mobs, and use a mythril to refresh damn on the Boss fight.

HP is quite high, about 88000-93000.- Bring along characters with high Resistance.
– Magic break is important to keep your units alive.
– Bring along all your high Multiplier Abilities such as the GA-spells (although Edea doesn’t have elemental weakness, the Ga-abilities can still hit like a truck due to it’s multiplier).
– Retaliate if you can equip Cloud with Rinoa’s weapon.

[Boss Fight] Schmelke (Iguion) ~ 50000 HP eachSimilar to the easy mode, there will be 2 bosses here. You might want to exploit it’s weakness for Holy Abilities (Dia).MAKE SURE YOU HAVE STONA or ESUNA with you! The chances of getting petrified in this fight is very high. Priority is always to break away from petrified first. Equip your Jeweled Ring to add resistance to Petrification. I suggest getting 2 healers for this fight, one to cast Stona and the other to heal.Quake is specially effective in this fight. If possible, hone it and let Rinoa or Terra use it (whoever has better weapons).
Cast Mental Break to further boost the damage from Quake.

[Boss Fight] Schmelke (Iguion) / Seifer / EdeaAs mentioned above, the HP of all the mobs/boss here are too high and there is no choice but to spam your abilities here. Unless you are decked out with all the natural 5* gear, using Mythrils to attain the Master score is inevitable.You need at last 43/51 score to get the Mastery reward.

[Seifer] ~ 180 000 HP

Seifer himself isn’t really that strong but because of the amount of HP he has, it will definitely affect your final score.
This fight is considered a DPS Check and the only way to quickly take down Seifer is to see how powerful your Bio/Biora damage are.
Slow him if you can to reduce damage intake.

[Edea] Slightly more than 100 000

If you can take down Seifer, this fight isn’t too tough as Edea’s Defense and Resistance is only mediocre.
Mental Break and Defense Break her.

Note: Edea can cast Protect and Shell. If she does that at the beginning of the fight, just restart your app and restart the battle.
– Edea can cast dispel
-Edea’s magic can be super painful. Bring along high resistance character or Magic Break her.

  1. Cipher = Seifer
    Arqueodino = T-Rexaur
    Garba Deere Sword probably means Galbadia Sword

  2. Soul Sabre (runic) with Celes sounds like she will wreck Edea.

    1. Ya… for those lucky enough to have gotten one… damn blasted mother !@#$%^& RNG BS!!! >.>

  3. Look like you forgot the Elite Mode of Event. And this really hard for ppl not hardcore farm orbs.

  4. “Use your Synergy Gear to breeze through this event.” Since we are skipping the Lenna event is this the reason we have no synergy gear? Did JP version have a lot of VIII gear during the Lenna event?

  5. Do we get any FF VIII armor from this event?

  6. seifer also has a mastery requirement to afflict him with slow that isnt on the page for those who dont know

    1. It’s listed, the formatting just isn’t all that clear for that part. Looks different then the usual blocking method used for Multi-Boss dungeons.

  7. For the Seifer conditions it should say “Exploit Seifer’s weakness to Poison” not slow in the Special Score Conditions for Normal and Elite. 😀

  8. – Bring along all your high Multiplier Abilities such as the GA-spells (although Edea doesn’t have elemental weakness, the Ga-abilities can still hit like a truck due to it’s multiplier).

    What is GA spells

    1. GA spells are the spells that end with “ga” like Blizzaga, Firaga, Thundaga.
