Ok, in order to familiarize ourselves with the runs more, I'm going to be the information for each run up as well as the strategy for it. Today I'll start with Central Temenos - 2nd Floor, since this is today's run.

Also: can we get this topic stickied?

Notes/Information
• Elementals located on raised platforms can be pulled by ranged attack from max distance. Also possible with spells if you're hugging the wall
• Elementals have 25% physical and magical resistance, Avatars have high physical resistance. Carbuncle has neither, just high evasion.
• Carbuncle has ~20,000hp. All other avatars/elementals ~7,000
•Light elementals can be slept or pet pulled

Strategy
Kill order is: Water>Thunder>Earth>Wind>Ice>Ifrit
Elementals should pose no problems, kill as normal. Ifrit is tanked on the ramp(mages at top, melee/tanks at bottom) as standard with astral flow mobs(which means shell/barspells/magus roll, etc as well).

Following Ifrit, kill order is: Light x2 > Carbuncle
Light elementals are the same as all the others. Being as they stand with Carbuncle, a pet pull or sac pull is necessary. Read the above posts for info on Carby's hp/resistance and such, simply we treat it like Ifrit; once elementals are dead and mp/hp are safe, Carby will be pulled to a nearby ramp and tanked like a standard avatar. Standard buffs(shell,magus roll, etc) and positioning(again mages on top of the ramp, melees on the lower section).

Notes/Information
•Chests can be opened at any time, however if one is opened before others appear, no more will spawn.
•Only 1 kill necessary to open gate
•Typically 4 of each chest drop, at least 2 Time chests will most likely be necessary

Strategy
Before I break this down, let me say that this is a DD and mage heavy floor; whoever is doing the most damage is the tank, so cures and sleeps will be necessary for most of this run. How many mobs we kill and what chests we take will depend on how many people we have attending.

The general strategy for almost all of these floors is extremely simple; try to pull single mobs if possible, and in the case of a link the mobs will be slept and killed one by one. Kill until all chests have been popped, unless time constraints do not allow for it.
First Floor
General Strategy, keep an eye on hp and status effects since tigers can be nasty with their tp moves.
Second Floor
Again, general strategy. Only move to be wary of is Dream Flower, see 2nd floor in post above for notes.
Third Floor
Getting the picture yet?
Fourth Floor
See above
Fifth Floor
This is slimes floor..and we all know how fun fluid spread is...because of that reason, we will be killing the 1 necessary for opening the portal and then possibly a few more depending on time.
Sixth Floor
Pugils can hurt a bit, again keep an eye out for hp.
Seventh Floor
All 6 birds are in V formation and all link when one is pulled, AoE sleep will be necessary. After they're pulled and slept, kill as usual.

All in all, not too difficult, though mildly annoying.

Strategy
■ Kill order is:
    •Airi>Iruci>Enhanced Dragon>Temenos Weapon>Temenos Cleaner>Enhanced Ahriman

This is not a very difficult floor, just have to keep an eye on hp and some mob tp moves, also we will not be using the weaken,sleep and kill method.
