Penance Boss Battle Guide

Preparation

FFX Penance Battle
Auto-haste, Auto-Potion, Auto-Protect, and Defense + 20%. Rikku Overdrive Mix, Dispel White Magic is also necessary. Supply of Healing Springs, Door to tomorrow (or other ingredients for Trio of 9999), and Three stars are needed as well.

Moveset

Penance Phase 1

FFX Penance Obliteration
During Phase 1, Penance will use Obliteration which deals massive damage to the whole party.

Penance Phase 2

During Phase 2, Penance uses Immolation which deals damage to the target's HP and MP. Immolation also inflicts Armor and Mental Break.
Penance may also use Judgement day which depletes the whole party's HP and MP. this move however, requires both Arms to be alive.

Left and Right Arms

Left Arm

The left arm uses Mega-Graviton and Slowga. Mega Graviton inflicts fractional damage and several status ailments to the whole party including Doom, Sleep, Silence, and Darkness.

Right Arm

The Right Arm uses Calamity which inflicts several status ailments to a single target including Poison, Curse, Full Break, and Darkness. Mighty Guard applies Protect, Shell, and Regen to the arms and Penance.

Strategy

Opening Moves

FFX Penance Three Stars
Use Rikku's Trio of 9999 to make Potions Heal for 9999 HP (not needed if only X-potions are in the inventory). Keep using Quick Hits to immediately kill the Left Arm. Once the Left Arm is killed, Quick Hit the Right Arm five times (remove the buffs/ debuffs Right arm will cast on its turn). Have another character use Three stars to remove MP from your problem list.

Phase 1

Penance Obliteration Damage FFX
Once the necessary buffs are applied, Have Rikku use Ultra NulAll to apply Cheer X 5 to the party (other buffs are unnecessary) and never let the arms get a turn. Hit a living Arm five times then kill it when the other arm regenerates itself. Penance's Obliteration won't kill anyone due to protect + defense +20% and 5 cheers.

Phase 2

FFX Penance Immolation
Phase 2 begins when Penance's tail falls off. Penance will stop using Obliteration and will use immolation instead. Always ready a dispel when a character is hit with Immolation as Immolation inflicts armor and mental break. A character with armor and mental break will instantly die when hit with another immolation. Keep the same strategy and never make an arm get a turn. Only attack penance when one arm is down and the other arm will die from another hit.
