Superstar achievement (End boss spoilers)

#1 Posted by xyzygy (9624 posts) -

I am at Orphan right now and having a very tough time. I tried the strategy where you use only Medics, Saboteurs and Synergists and I still keep dying regardless of being in Med/Med/Med. Anyway, that's not what I'm asking... If I don't get the Superstar achievement (Kill final boss with 5-star rating) now, will I be able to fight him later or is this the ONLY time I can get that achievement?

The 3rd phase? And yes you will be allowed to return easily once you have beaten him.
 
Edit: Just to expand a little, I think you only need to beat the 3rd phase with 5 stars for the achievement, which I found pretty easy even after struggling with the first 2. Also once complete the game will expand your crystarium to max and will spit you back out onto pulse with a portal that leads right back to the final boss. So if you don't manage to 5 star it first time around you can level up a bit and give it another shot.

I think its designed that you have to beat him at least once to get that achievement.

Getting that 5 star achivement on the first try is impossible(as far as i know) you need the gold watch from beating the final pulse mission in the game. The gold watch when equipped ups the time needed for 5 stars and thus hands you the achivement :)

I got it quite easily on the first try, 1:10 on a target of 2:15. Granted I had pretty much filled out primary stage 9 roles and had star tier 2 weapons but was still the easiest boss in the game tbh.
 
Since it does negligible damage anyway, start with RAV/SAB/SYN until you've done deprotect, deshell and possibly weak, then full RAV/RAV/RAV past stagger up to 900% then full COM/COM/COM. Fang and Light were both doing 99,999 a hit so it literally hit the floor in 3 bars.
 
Or, just go back and massacre it with a stage 10 crystarium =P
