I'm trying and failing to beat Sephiroth efficiently on Hard, I also have the Limit Break Accessory. But still can't get the handle on this fight.
My Set up
ATB Assist - ATB Stagger - HP UP x 2 - First Strike - Steadfast Block - Luck Up x 2
Elemental Lightning in Armour
Limit Break Accessory
MP UP x 2 - Magic up x 2 - ATB Stagger - First Strike - Refocus
Ice - Wind - Lightning
Skill Master - ATB Stagger - Staedfast Block - HP UP x 2 - Healing - Fire
Elemental - Wind in armour
I stick with using Cloud mostly
My plan Phase 1
Use Punisher Counter for Telluric Fury
Try dodge Aeolian Onslaught and fail
When he uses Magic Use Triple Slash if ATB bar is available
If I'm not messing up I could get through this with almost full health, I'm usually messing up though
Aerith Cast Limit Break - Earth Protection this takes care of some of his attacks but Hells Gate, Aeolian Onslaught, Magic and a ranged 3 hit sword attack still do damage
Even with Earth protection I end up getting beaten up badly.
Use opposing Magic elements to Stagger him, if imbued with Thunder I'd attack with Cloud and if he's with Wind I'd attack with Tifa as they absorb elements.
For me Sephiroth normally starts with Wind or Thunder .
I've staggered him quite early in phase 3 but it's after this he can be a problem when Aerith hasn't filled her ATB bar to strike him.
Final phase (Which I think is cheap)
If Cloud doesn't have a limit break, which keeps happening, I'm screwed. His shadow Flare and Heartless Angel just shreds my team. I've even had Cloud die whilst using his Limit break.
I'm still useless at using Counter Stance and Timing Counters, my reflexes aren't the best either.
