~ i'm @ level 99. i have all the abilities needed to beat him. i've been using trinity limit to give myself a little edge. i have the freakin strategy guide! i've done everything in my power to beat this freak & every one of my attempts have added up to naught!! if there is anyone out there who's beaten this guy, pleeeeze respond and tell me what you did !!!
Well, keep these in mind.
Press Triangle=Block whenever it comes up.
When he's rising up in the air, jump at him at attack him fast as possible before he depletes your hp to 1 and mp to 0.
after you press block, I tend to jump on top of him and attack him from above.
and then I do trinity.
after you deplete about 7 bars of him, he starts throwing fire all over.
As fire shoots up from the floor. It would be wise to run the opposite side of it, as it drags you in.
Those black balls [w/e they are] they are 15 of them. Get rid of them first, and then aim at sephiroth. or Ignore them and aim at Sephiroth [they're not much of a bother.]
At some point he rises up and starts shooting fire balls at you. When he does, run to the left [try to avoid them]
BEFORE YOU FIGHT HIM:
Even though you're at level 99, it would be wise you level up your drive forms so your jump, glide, and run abilities advance.
[I didn't do this] But, gather up all synthesis items for the Ultima Keyblade.
as it says in the book, it's the equal of the fenrir.
Stock up on ELIXIRS!
For me fighting Sephiroth is not at all easy. [at first.]
on normal mode when I beat him at level 42 it took me about 80 times to finally defeat him.
in proud mode when I beat him at level 99, it took me about 30 times.
Practice makes perfect. =]
BTW: If you're one of those ppl that get frustaded easily and wait to gather all the precious items for Ultima Keyblade. [me] Beat him with Bond of Flame [the keyblade that Axel gave you] I tried experimenting with which keyblade will go farther at beating him. That one worked best for me, one time I tried beating him w/ sweet memories, lol- I ended after 5 bars.
either way, g' luck.
