Secret Mission 17

VS. Yeager. Made his heart explode using Raven's Rain arte.   

This is the method that got me the achievement:

During the second half of the fight (after he reveals his heart), take control of Raven. Make sure you don't have any weapons or skills equipped that will alter your artes (you want normal Rain, not Rainsong). Keep your allies at their normal strategies and back up, making sure Yeager is facing you. Now go into Overlimit (having synthesized the Quatro for level 4 will help) and simply spam your Rain arte over and over and over. Your allies should add in some melee strikes and eventually he will go into a hunched over state where he is catching his breath. Since you are spamming Rain, it should have no problem hitting him directly after he does this. Since your allies are up close, they may hit him first, so use some Limit Bottles and try again until it works.

This youtube video seems to be an easy way as well, but I never tried it. Watch the video and click "more info" to read about his setup and exactly what he did.

Spamming rain over and over can work but it takes a lot of luck. I followed the
youtube vid. Basically, as soon as the second part of the fight starts set your
party to defend and keep distance. Just make sure they are doing nothing. Take
Yuri and bread his guard then go into overlimit and spam destruction field.
After about 4-5 hits with destruction field he should hunch over. Just make
sure to pause or go into the menu after the destruction field hits each time
because if he hunches and then you hit him again it he wont hunch. Then just
switch to Raven and fire of 1 or 2 rain and you will get it.

i tried the you tube method a couple times and only succeeded in getting pissed off off. I got it the first time of using the method listed in the 360a guide.

Tried both methods, the youtube vid and the one posted... after about 6 tries I still haven't got it.

The game just keeps denying me that chance to do it. Every single time I almost do it, he hunches over and ends up going straight into overlimit. -_-

It turns out that Raven had Rainsong equipped to his weapon. I changed weapons and finally succeeded! WOOT!!!

The destruction field method worked for me. Everyone on defend, rain on a right stick shortcut, hit him 4 times with destruction field, run away a bit (do he hunches over) and then use rain. Had to try this maybe 10 times before it worked, but it did, eventually.

The updated video is much better than the guide or its linked video - which is actually the old version to this one:

Got it first try doing this, even doing it on hard. A major annoyance gone. Whew!
