How-To-Play Notes

  • Use Boost Jump for AoE shaving while avoiding BREAK for yourself. Use Dragon (Special HP) for healing yourself or your allies by a small amount if Cid is full health.

  • Base skills are pretty straightforward, maintain his buffs and use Dragon Dive for dispels if EX isn't up or Highwind Takes To The Skies doesn't need refreshing.

  • Big Brawl is alternating (whoever you target is will be hit last) : 2 enemies (target A, ABABABABABABA), 3 enemies (target A, ABCABCABCABCA)

  • Bombs Away is a unique linked attack that only goes off on allies turns, but stacks for it are only built up on Cid's own attacking turns. It offers battery after attacking keeping party nicely charged.

  • Refresh AA when possible as it boosts damage from his Skills and LD along with offering BRV DMG limit up making his EX, LD and Bombs Away hit that much harder

  • BRV DMG Limit HA+s, BRV Steal, HP DMG Up and mBRV Floors are his EX and LD's best friends
