How to Get through his first HP Bar: This Part is pretty Simple. Be sure to Lock On to him. You could just go strait up and attack him head on with combos of less then 4 hits, but you should use Sonic Blade until his first HP Bar is gone. When you run out of MP, just let him hit you then use Curaga and repeat that until you have the amount of MP that you want. What to do with Sin Harvest: Okay he was easy through his first HP Bar, but now he gets dangerous. He will run at you and slash you. I always used Dodge Roll, so use it. Eventually get close to him and he will teleport. Immediatly lock on to him and dodge roll to his location. He will appear and say "Sin Harvest". You have just about 5 seconds to hit him, and don't wait. If you see a halo over Sora's head get as far away from him as possible, then have some type of curing item ready and when your HP goes to critical instantly use the potion. Later in the fight he won't say "Sin Harvest" but he will say something and will do the same motions. How to deal with his attacks: When he uses his berserk flying sword swinging attack (I named it that because I couldnt come up with any other name), use dodge roll and whenever you get damaged be sure to use curaga. That is about all you have to do to save yourselves from his attacks. Main Strategies after Sephiroth's First HP Meter is Gone: I use the gurilla tactics after his first HP bar is gone (Hit & Run). He can become a major pain. You want to run from him when he runs at you. Make sure that you heal yourself whenever he hits you or you could be in deep crap. Use any strong attack that you can on him (Sonic Blade, Ars Arcanum, etc.) Always watch for him to teleport. If he does, most of the time it is for Sin Harvest. Do not use combos that go more than 3 hits or he will teleport and hit you from behind. Be sure to use Aeroga whenever you can. How to Deal with his Meteor Crush: Sometime, when his HP gets low enough, he moves to the center and starts glowing. Meteors will fall and the shockwave from them will do some damage, so jump to avoid it. Then, the meteors will start spinning around him, Use dodge roll to avoid most of them and use curaga if you get hit. Finally all of them will come towards him and a big explosion damages the entire ring. Most of the time, he decides to use Sin Harvest on me soon after the explosion. That is how I dealed with his Meteor Crush. If you have any questions email me.
