    Am I missing something? Are people cheesing it?

    I got pretty far with DMeta using 4 hearts to heal, but damn.

    Cheesing it using a 75% shield and a high counter attack - vivi or lotta lotta. I forget the hp needed, 235k or something.

    Things can get dicey in single player, but it's pretty straightforward in co-op. All the enemies have very little hp, so you just need a very tanky lead (high hp, high rcv) and to stack some shield actives (Indra, Susano, Raphael, Highren, etc.). on each team. My main and alt beat it with B&J. Had a couple of shield actives to spare. I imagine Zela Kitty can tag team it pretty easily too.

    I cleared it without cheese using Tifa/Yuna, with Indra, Raph inherit on Aerith, and Odindra. Just need enough HP to tank the first two floors, then you shield shield shield. Even if you can't tank the second floor, you can bring Tachi or something for an extra shield.

    And yes, I agree.. sorta silly. Much easier to hit damage cap than tank so much damage for an "avg" player box.

    After watching a youtube video, I solo’d it running Yuna with constant shielding and a high-RCV sub (Edit: Somewhat similar to @chiubag). Fairly straightforward, but I should have counted my shield actives more carefully. It worked out, barely, because I got a Yuna active back at the end, and the Raph active heal helped me survive the final pre-emptive with just a 50% shield.
