How to beat Seifer and Edea

Preparation

Draw command. GF Carbuncle, Magic Dispel.

Moveset

Seifer will still have the same moveset as when you previously fought him. Edea will use Dispel, Death, Maelstrom, Reflect, and Tier 3 spells.

Seifer - Strategy

Draw and cast Haste on everyone, then Summon Carbuncle. Seifer will damage himself and waste his time by casting his fire spell. Quickly defeat Seifer to carry over Haste to the battle with Edea.

Edea - Strategy

Edea will use Reflect on herself then dispel on your team one by one so ready your own dispel to remove her reflect. Make sure to draw Alexander from Edea before the battle is over. Maelstrom will inflict Curse on everyone so draw and cast Esuna on your party. Keep Casting Carbuncle and dispelling her Reflect while keeping Squall's HP low to continuously use Renzokuken.
