Cannoneer can wipe random enemies with Combine and EXP Up makes grinding quicker.
Honestly, I think CAN/CAN/CAN/CAN could beat the entire temple as long as you grind to 99 Elixir/Phoenix Down between every fight?

Gil Turtle: inflict Slow, kill it with Vulner Cannon to bypass counters, make sure to scam a Float from the Dancing Dagger beforehand (this is lots of rng to have that float last all fight, but okay)
Grand Aevis: inflict Slow, kill both the Elementals, kill it with Vulner Cannon to prevent them reviving because that's a counter to HP damage
Archeodemon: inflict Slow, kill it with Vulner Cannon
Guardian: this fight pretends to have gimmicks, but it really doesn't, you can't even do fun status ailment things
Enuo: phase 1 can be Slowed, phase 2 uh... Needle Cannon does more damage than most teams' usual offensive options, Vulner Cannon keeps you safe from the crazy counters
Omegas (mk. 1): vulner cannon lol
Omega Mk. II: inflict Slow, Vulner Cannon and pray
Neo Shinryu: let's get real you didn't make it past omega mk 2 but if you did, you can stick Slow and also Darkness lmao

You can use whatever supporting jobs you want. You may stop-lock. You may mix your Geomancer into godhood. No holds barred... but the only offense is the DING.

to charity and a custom vanity title in the Discord of your choice to the winner!

This toxx... it was made for me...

The tragedy is that despite never shutting up about the stupid bell, Geomancer is the only non-Advance job that I have never rolled in five years of fiesta-ing. (Also I'd need to actually get in the discord, I guess.)

Yes,

The real question is though is the conversion rate. It used to be fixed rate per zerker, but a couple times RK hosed with the numbers because too many people donated towards it and zerker risk became a cerzerkency for at least one per risker.

MGBA is a much better emulator than VBA, and is pretty close to cycle-accurate. BizHawk's GBA core uses MGBA, and can make Tool-Assisted Speedruns verifiable on hardware.

It's time, but I'm going to do something different this year. Everyone loves quadzerks, but how about quad geomancers or quad red mages? I'll throw in $10 per regular job that someone does a quad run of, and $20 for Freelancer/Mime/Gladiator/Oracle/Cannoneer. Some of those runs will be pretty miserable, but it's for a good cause, and let's face it: thread regulars have done worse.

e: No balance patches or randomizers, please. The point of this is to have the vanilla experience.

Isn't this year the 10th official fiesta? I know it was a thing longer than that, but I'm pretty sure 2011 was the first one to do it for charity.

I did it last season, it's really not as bad as you might expect! You'll have to grind for Ifrit, Sandworm, and then Sol Cannon, but after that it's pretty much cake tbh.

(Because Geomancer is good actually.)

yeah Geo rules; you have to grind for those bosses but you also have a free-insta-win-random-encounters button in !Gaia

I did Sealed Temple once, when I got Thief/Beastmaster/Chemist/Canoneer. It's probably the best bonus dungeon team there is (maybe Summoner is better than Canoneer), and it still turned out to be a giant slog. Don't do Sealed Temple, kids.

Orange Fluffy Sheep posted:

You can, the probability is just incomprehensibly low. A Rune Axe has a 1/200 chance of hitting, quarter's Omega's defense, and might roll above that!

I think even perfect RNG wouldn't make the fight doable. You just can't do enough damage before Wave Cannon kills you.

A couple of years ago I did sealed temple with white/sum/blu/zerk, only switching classes when absolutely necessary. Even with a team that busted, Neo Shinryu was pure and utter hell and for good reason.
