Current Stats and Strategy are based on Japanese Build. I doubt global players have the unit pool and items to defeat the raw Maxwell, I’m pretty sure they will nerf her according to Global standards.

Rough Fight Breakdown

My Clear Party: Cecil – WoL – Luneth – CoD – Refia – Elza(friend)

Turn 1 (Me) – Buff Focus and and Embolden, Full-Break, Attack with Barrage to charge Esper.
Turn 1 (Maxwell) – Genesis.

Turn 2 (Me) – Heal and Provoke or Double Heals, Barrage.
Turn 2 (Maxwell) – Combination of Normal Attacks + Meteor (can cast more than once).

Turn 3 (Me) – Double Heal, Barrage
Turn 3 (Maxwell) – Resurrection + 6 hits Normal Attack or Combination of Normal Attacks + Meteor.

Turn 4 (Me) – Full Break, Embolden, Omniveil, Heal, Barrage (I chose Omniveil over Focus because Cecil needs to Curaja).
Turn 4 (Maxwell) – Resurrection, Rune, Sacred Song + Normal Attacks or Endless if his HP is less than 30%.

Note: It’s better to get the latter skill combination to skip the Rune and Sacred Song part. However, if you do get Sacred Song, remember to DISPEL IT before Endless hits!

Turn 5 (Me) – You should be able to cast Diablo this turn. Heal up and try to finish him off. 
Turn 5 (Maxwell) – Revival, Meteor, Destiny + Normal Attacks.

Turn 6 (Me) – Finish him off!

  1. I attached Diablos on Cecil since his 100% Light Resistance dampen the -50% from Diablos.

    My clear party: CoD, Garnet, Lenna, Cecil, Agrias, CoD (friend)

      • You have to watch all the buffs / debuffs. You will NEED to Dispel her when she gets her Atk buff applied and keep your own buffs up throughout the fight. Omniveil will get you 30% Holy Resistance for the whole party and is helpful, Focus / Cheer to get your Defenses up. WW Fina has natural 25% Holy Resistance and good stats but will only be there to Cheer / Cura (not a bad idea). If you just want to beat her then Elza’s Def debuff is AWESOME and CoD’s Call of the Void does amazing damage (she did 175k for me with Rising Sun / Diabolos equipped, when she was cheered and the enemy had Elza’s Def debuff applied).

  2. Not sure why I’m struggling so bad. Teams not top tier I’d say, but from what I’ve read should be better than what I’ve been doing. Anybody have any advice? Went in last with: 6*max. Cecil (with Diabolos), 5* max WoL, 6* max Elza (460 atk), 5* max black cat lid (disease and focus), 6* max white witch Fina, 460 atk Elza friend.

    All is fine until round 4, all are close to death, and 1 dead usually, forcing double heal. Next round endless wipes everybody except Elza. Each time he’s at exactly 50% health when my team (minus Elza) are wiped.

    Tried same team bit with CoD friend for omniveil, same result. Actually did better with Elza friend.

    Thoughts? I know WW Fina and BC lid could be upgraded, but having focus on cat is helpful, and I don’t have refia or garnet, unfortunately. Still feel I should be able to swing clearing this.

  3. Need help with summoning Diabolos and winning the battle. My current team comp is:
    6* WW Fina, 6* Cecil (Diabolos), 5* WoL, 6*Delita and 6* CoD. I had defeated Maxwell by using 6* CoD dual wield friend unit.. and completed the other objectives. Problem is if i finish quickly i can’t fill evocation gauge fast enough before it died. If i extend the battle to fill the gauge fist, my team is completely wiped out before being able to finish the battle. Any idea how to fill the gauge quickly?

  4. Wes, every 4th round he does massive damage. On the 4th round have Cecil curaja and everyone else defend. You need to dispel him on the 5th round, after dispel use omniveil, full break, heal with fina and attack with other units.

    I cleared it the first time after about 34 rounds having summoned diablos. Then went and killed him in 6 rounds making sure no one died. I have no trust mastery items maxed yet.

    6* Cecil, 6* refia, 5* WoL, 6* elza, 6* CoD and lightning friend.
    Round one was full break and Omni then every other round refreshing with every 4th round defend and heal with Cecil.

  6. I use my team with Cecil, refia, COD, Ingus, Elza. All max and plus a friend COD with dual wield. I obtained her at the end by equip diabolos with Cecil. After wasting a lot of time and gotten her, I just realized Maxwell is a five star unit and not really as powerful as what I thought she should be..and the 10000 karma hasn’t been sent to me too..think properly before wasting time like me and get the disappointed😕

    • This made me feel better about not being able to defeat her, plus I have friend who always has up-to-date units and when I used his max level maxwell it’s not really a good unit anyway. Gumi really knows how to keep us (those of us falling behind and those of us that can keep up) playing this game. I’ve been wanting to quit for awhile, but ever since I paid $100 at the lightning banner, I feel I have to at least get my money’s worth in playtime before I call it quits, and I haven’t been too disappointed yet lol.

  7. I know a trick that you can defeat maxwell easily. there’s a way that you maxwell cant do the RUNE and SACRED SONG in fight until you defeat him. 🙂

  8. CoD + CoD of a friend + bunch of dark magic = huge dark chain = -200k+ hp in 1 turn. get some +mp for CoD to spam that dark skill he has.

  9. Impossible challenge without major cash investment. At least be honest, Square. Don’t try to sell players Duane and Dark Cecil and company if they literally can’t beat Maxwell. It’s deceitful. I’ve watched all the guides on YouTube and the players have two 6* Lightnings and 6* Refia and 6* Agrias and all the best Trust rewards. Lol. “Easy!” Yeah, if you paid for it to be.

  10. Please help me, I still cannot beat her and the event almost end. I really want to get her, but after so many tries I think I will just give up.. I just try to beat her for moogle now..
    My team 6*Cecil, 6*Refia, 6*Dracu Lasswell, 6*Delita, 5*WoL / Agrias. I also have 6*CoD but not maxed, still at lv 50. I don’t have any TMR at all.
    Usually I can survive until 4th turn then she almost kill all my team with Rune+Sacred Song combo, then at turn 5 my team always dead horribly.
    Please give me advice how to beat her
    And do anyone know if she will re-appear at future event?
