Uniquely Disadvantaged (Restricted Mode) Tips and Strategies

Uniquely Disadvantaed General Tips

Uniquely Disadvantaged
The key to this battle is in keeping Fiora's tension up. This can be done by avoiding a full frontal assault (to avoid enemy aggro) and using Fiora's Double Wind, strike a balance of aggression and non-aggression to get that S rank.

You can get an S rating by completing the challenge under the 6:00 minute mark.

Wave 1 Enemies and Strategies

Uniquely Disadvantaged

Enemy (quantity) Level
Cellar Bugworm 97
Shimmering Forte 98
Conflagrant Raxeal 99

Your goal in this wave is to get Fiora's Tension to maximum. Do not use a Chain Attack or Fiora's Final Cross in this round. It's ok to be slow, and Fiora's Auto Attacks and Double Wind is enough to get you through this wave. Make sure to prioritize killing the Caterpile as it can use Caterpile Rush, which can reduce Fiora's Tension.

Wave 2 Enemies and Strategies

Enemy (quantity) Level
Immovable Gonzalez (x1) 100
Territorial Rotbart (x1) 105

Uniquely Disadvanted Wave 2
Use Battle Start, then immediately use a Chain Attack against Immovable Gonzales. Your first move should be Final Cross, followed by Melia's Elemental Discharge. If Gonzales got toppled, use Sharla's Head Shaker, else, use Head Shot. The goal is to deal enough damage to Gonzales to damage him or better, kill him outright.

Territorial Rotbart.jpg
Use another Final Cross against Territorial Rotbart (ignore it's downspike ability) and focus on it to quickly bring it down and make sure to use your arts' bonus abilities to stack up your party gauge for the last wave.

Wave 3 Enemies and Strategies

Enemy (quantity) Level
Blizzard Belgazas (x1) 114
Avalanche Abaasy (x1) 120

wave 3 uniquely disadvantaged
This is where it gets tricky. Use Battle Start, then use Second Gear before using a Chain Attack. Use the arts Sword Drones, Elemental Discharge, Head Shot (if it continues, use any physical art from Fiora, then another Elemental Discharge, followed by Head Shaker into Fiora's Cross Impact), to deal some damage to Belzagas. You will not want to topple Belgazas as it has a nasty 1800 down spike counter ability. Further focus Belzagas until it falls.

Avalanche Abaasy
Avalanche Abaasy is the last struggle, so don't get complacent even if you still have a lot of time left. Buff Fiora with Speed Shift and Power Drain and let her auto attacks do their thing. Save all of your party gauge until Abaasy uses Its Ultra Air Crush X. Take it and die! Wait for your ally to revive you. Build up your party gauge, then unleash your last Chain Attack by focusing on Physical arts. This will bring Abaasy to critical health, and all that's left is to finish the fight.
