Rita's Grade Farming Nerfed?

So in the original, there was this trick that let you grind grade pretty easy using Rita's Tidal Wave spell and over-limits. But it seems to have been nerfed and I can't get up to OVL 3 before the time runs out. I have all the skills needed (Spirits 1,2,3,4/Light Magic/OL Boost/Spell End/OVL Bonus 2) as well as the Wonder Symbol. I'm just wondering if there's something I'm missing, or if they just nerfed the OVL gains. Sure I could use the Risky Ring method, but it's a bit slower and I prefer the Wonder Symbol method.

I apologize if I misunderstood, but are you using level 3 limits with Rita? You only need to use level 1 (or pressing cn_right) to get her casting speed up to make Tidal Wave spamable. It's also a good idea to have the Taunt and Taunt 2 skills equipped on the three other party members too, as that'll help raise the OVL gauge as well.

True, though in OVL 3+ there is no TP cost for spells.

I was also able to achieve this in the original without any of the Taunts on. But even with the Taunts, I still can't reach OVL 3.

I'd recommend just slapping on the Risky Ring and sticking to OVL 1. I know that it's a bit slower than the Wonder Symbol, but from my experience grade farming on this version I never was able to build up the gauge 3 levels during a use. I do think it would be possible if you had the OVL Boost from the grade shop, but that's not exactly helpful since you'll only have access to it after you no longer need it for farming.
