After straying to the allure of Firion shidld bash, I returned to the loving embrace of Terra... And have been exploiting the following..
- Exp > EX
- Doublecast (hence Terra specific)
- Quick fingers
Exp > EX triggers when hp damage is dealt, not after hp damage is dealt. Hence Exp > EX has the ability to activate before Terra has finished performing Ultima or Tornado (though after hp damage has been dealt).
Thus if your EX bar is filled by Exp > HP triggering when either Ultima or Tornado deals damage,, provided you are very quick, you can activate EX then immediately activate Doublecast, as you are still performing Ultima or Tornado when Doublecast is activated.
What this means in practice is that it is very possible to Ultima/Tornado > (HP damage) > EX Mode > Doublecast > EX Burst, off off every Ultima or Tornado that deals damage.
- Connect with Ultima/Tornado
- (HP damage occurs)
- (Exp > EX triggers)
- Activate EX Mode
- Activate Doublecast
I've been testing this technique with Excalibur II, Super Ribbon, Chocobo items and Growth Eggs. This provides a guaranteed 0%-100% EX guage increase upon Exp > HP triggering, allowing EX-Doublecast on each and every time.

This is a cool exploit. Except I'm running into a slight problem.
My oppoenet can keep getting out of it. The second Ultima appears, but he just gets out.
However I did find that Terra can do the second Ultima ANYTIME while she's twirling around after the first Ultima. This then worked like a treat because just as the oppoenet finished the recovery, BAM! The second Ultima. And the delay can be quite crazy: I believe you get a SECOND to cast a second Ultima.
Can't get it working at all with Tornado. Terra just doesn't want to double cast tornado. Instead she just single casts it. That however may be me. =(
It's a nice discovery eitherway. It's a really nasty mindgame tactic. It also means Terra can exploit both EXP to BRV and EXP to EX. Now if only we can exploit EXP to HP...
Nice exploit there.
Can't use it on tornado too.
Is it impossible on tornado?
Maybe,'cause the hp damage was already dealt before it can be dualcasted.
Wow that's actually awesome. Is it Terra specific?
Or could this be useable on characters?
(Cloud, Bartz etc)
