Pro Tips

Farm Blizzard Blows and Fire Blows: Given that the event's enemies are weak to these elements, having these materia in your arsenal will give you an edge.

Bind to Your Summons: To unlock powerful AOE spells for your summons, you must bind to them. For example, while Ifrit's "Hellfire" is an AOE limit break, the basic LB "Radiant Plume" targets a single enemy. Binding and leveling up your summons can make a considerable difference in battles.
