Some skill data:

Altri

  • Spectral Purge – AoE heal 10k-20k; cures all status effects (including stat down debuffs)
  • Cosmic Radius – AoE heal 30k-40k; cures all status effects (including stat down debuffs); status immunity for 3 turns (not including stat down debuffs)

Zelnite:

  • Cosmo Grip – 110% damage AoE, drains 25-30% of BB gauge
  • Hand Over All Your BC! – 130% damage AoE, drains 100% of BB gauge
  • Warning: Your BC’ll be mine. – 110% damage AoE

As for passive effects, BC drop resistance is very noticeable in this trial. Nothing else can really be measured.

Most of the enemy AoE is fairly weak, so Injury and ATK down debuffs work pretty well. Notably the nukes will barely be affected if at all, however.

Lugina’s single target nuke can just barely be survived by a unit with 8k base HP (6* + anima + imped or 7* + anima), mitigation, guarding, shield and dual Tridon leads (103733 effective HP – the attack does 100k damage). Chances are the unit would still be killed by following attacks, but HP spheres would push the survival chance higher. Still, it’s moderately impressive the possibility exists that a unit can survive that hit, and if Lugina really does only target the highest HP unit, it may be a viable strategy for surviving it. If it was only 50k damage you could get by with just one Tridon lead. There’s also potential for the earth shield sphere that some players may have from the earth/thunder vortex arenas, which is worth more effective HP than an HP sphere in this scenario due to how mitigation stacks additively (going from 70% mitigation to 85% mitigation would be a 50% damage reduction, while the unit already has +60% HP and thus would need +160% more HP to get the same survivability boost).

Another method:

  • Ultor (Taunt makes sure it hits him)
  • Earth shield
  • Dual 15% mitigation leads (Arbonella, Agni, Ramna)
  • Mitigation buff
  • 5920 HP * (1/(1-0.95)) = 119200 effective HP
  • No substitutes can really be used for the leader slot as this is taking the OP stacking of mitigation effects to the limit, but you could use the Earth Mail sphere in second slot to bring mitigation to 100% and always survive
  • Works even with un-imped Oracle Ultor, but he’s going to take every single hit on the nuke turns, so he really wants as much HP as he can get. The DEF buff included with taunt and 95% mitigation is going to help a lot, though.

In the final phase, Lugina’s single target nukes require at least mitigation or guarding above 80% HP to survive, which isn’t quite is difficult to achieve.
