Thread: How do you kill X-ATM092?

    Default How do you kill X-ATM092?

    Has anyone ever fully killed X-ATM092 the first time you encounter it to get a score of 100 for the Spirit part of the SeeD test?

    If so, what tips would you recommend?

    You'll want Thundara attached to Zell and Squall's element junctions to maximize damage. Also draw as many Doubles from Elvoret as possible so you can have Selphie Dual cast Thunder/Thundara. Limit abuse is a must.

    You get Thundara by learning Mid-Magic refine and converting Thunder spells into their tier two variants which should also be used to maximize Str. and Mag. stats. I would not recommend using Quezocaotl as the Boost option drags the fight out and the timer is your enemy for this challenge.

    Getting Elem-Atk-J and Mid Mag-RF for a total of about 300 AP is a lot of level grinding...

    Just fight the fish monsters at the beach by Balamb to get the AP. If you get card mod, you can use that to keep your XP down as well as using the summons to kill them.

    It is a grind, but beating the spider bot is an extra challenge anyway.

    Btw, make sure you attempt killing it when you reach the end of the town sequence. Beating it has random encounters start up again and those will affect your score as well. You'll also want to be there to maximize your timer. Likewise, ''beating'' the spider bot and running away still gives you 50 AP so you can technically farm AP with it as long as you're powerful enough to shave off 25% of it's health quickly so you don't run out of time.

    I finally did this on my last playthrough a few years back, although I don't remember much about the process.

    The one thing I'll say is that the outcome isn't as cool. You miss out on the epic cutscene of Quistis turning it into a cheese grater. I don't remember if destroying it effects later visits to Dollet, such as that one guy's car not getting crushed.
