Default Boss battle Barth help

hey i'm new to the forums my names fin, recently got this game and now up to the big Barth battle.

my trouble is when he casts the Doom spell, i only have him at around 1/3 health left and don't have enough time to finish him off. i use these paradigms with these guys

Light Hope Vanille
ravager synergist saboteur
ravager medic ravager
ravager synergist medic
ravager ravager medic
ravager medic saboteur
ravager ravager ravager

i also use the +200HP bangles on each of them, if you have any tips or know any items that'll stop this Doom spell i'd be much appreciated, also just any quick tactics on killing him fast, i chose ravager on light for each just to get the bar up.

Any help will be much appreciated.

thanks, fin!

I dont know if this helps but maybe you should try a different trick with accesories. Instead of increasing the HP you should try using stuff to increase your magic or strenght (depens on the role) so that you'll end the battle faster.
Also try updating the Crystarium.

Ah I forgot to add. Maybe use Eidolons to avoid any hard damage on the players or stagger Bart ^^
...What do you fight for?

You should have Lightning be a commando for a couple paradigms... otherwise the stagger meter will fall too fast

Also, in the beginning, use a Librascope so you can get your guys to know the weakness of each part of him. Then you want to attack the little faces to his left and right.

When he's trying to cast the DOOM spell, you need to go all attack on him (rav, rav, com... or something like that), and keep that paradigm all the way until he uses it. He flinches twice I think, and then finally does the spell... because you're going all attack on him, for some reason, the DOOM spell only does a couple hundred damage to every person.

And, yeah, don't use only HP bangles, since you can have other stuff, although Hope always needs HP xD

thanks for the help guys, i got very close then, just i think the change from a +200HP bangle to a +50 mage ruined it for me on the destrudo move, i'll try again tomorrow as it's late, should be able to do it.

use a commando, otherwise you won't be able get his stagger bar very high, because without using commando the bar falls extra fast.

See that? See how it says questions about the game belong in the Spoiler Discussion & Questions section. I'm guessing that's because questions about the game belong in the Spoiler Discussion & Questions section.
