|Weapon (3 Slots)|
|Armor (3 Slots)|
As usual, spam Triple Slash. If your target has a physical barrier up, cast Aero (or higher) on it to break the barrier. You can also stand on Aerith's Arcane Ward before casting it as long as you have enough MP.
|Weapon (3 Slots)|
|Armor (2 Slots)|
Set an Arcane Ward for Cloud's Aero as soon as you can. Save ATB charges for Prayer to heal both Cloud and Aerith. If you only need healing on one character, just use spells from the Healing materia.
|1||Mark II Monodrives will put up a barrier that blocks either physical or magic attacks at the beginning.|
|2||They will start attacking by charging or striking from underground while also using their abilities.|
They are all weak against Wind attacks so equip Elemental + Wind materias on either Cloud or Aerith's weapons to infuse basic attacks with Wind damage. Remember to spam Aero (or higher) whenever you can.
Mark II Monodrives can gain resistance or immunity against physical or magic attacks but they are breakable by the opposite attack type. Use physical attacks to break green barriers and magic attacks to break mirror-like barriers.
Sometimes, they can have both barriers at once. When this happens, just attack it with physical attacks (even if it deals reduced damage) or wait until it wears off.
All of Mark II Monodrive's attacks are difficult to dodge, which would make it better if you just guard against them. Pay extra attention to when it dives underground and prepare to block before it submerges as this attack can knock your character airborne and deal heavy damage.
