Before we call it a day, let’s briefly shine some light on the Octaslash Limit Break move in Crisis Core Reunion. Returning Final Fantasy fans would know that the Octaslash move belongs to the antagonist in the series known as Sephiroth. The Octaslash move is a highly damaging attack move. When used, the player unleashes a quick flurry of eight sword swipes toward the enemy.

In Crisis Core Reunion, the Octaslash Limit Break move is available from the start of the game. This is because Sephiroth has been unlocked in the DMW wheel since the beginning. Hence, you can potentially use the Octaslash move in your first fight, which has DMW in it. 

Of course, to get the Octaslash Limit Break to move, you need to successfully get the Sephiroth character card on each of the three slots of the DMW. However, it is to be noted that your rolls are purely based on luck and can not be altered.

Once you get three Sephiroth cards, you will instantly get the option to use the Octaslash Limit Break. The move can be stored throughout the battle, although once the battle concludes, the unused Limit Break moves will expire in Crisis Core Reunion.

Nevertheless, having the Octaslash Materia will allow you to increase your chances of rolling Sephiroth in the DMW. Therefore, your chances of getting the Octaslash Limit Break will ultimately increase.
