Since I was doing ASA avatar fights, I decided to "cheat" and used mini fork to warp myself and also do the real Prime Avatar fight at the same time. Mini forks saved travel time a lot, and I got 50k+60k gils.
I never did Prime Avatar fight on SMN solo before, so I don't know how well can SMN solo Prime before the update. I used favor on all fights because MP concern. Since I got free Garuda, I did Titan with only one siphone and nothing else. 70 mp left when fight was over.
The rest, I had to siphone twice, use 2-3 Hi-ether (50mp each). On Garuda and Levi because of their healing, I think I used about 3-5 Hi-ether. MP left at win ranged from 40(garuda)-180ish(Ifrit).
I wonder if Favor made Prime solo as SMN easier, or the weakened damage and MP saving about even out?
