Combat Simulation: Leviathan
|Defeat Leviathan||Chapter 13||Leviathan Materia|
You'll be able to receive this Battle Intel once you reach Chadley in Chapter 13 and just like Report 05 it's another battle against a Summon for the chance to win it's Materia. Once again you'll find a full in-depth strategy for how to beat Leviathan in the VR Missions page but there's a few tips below to get you started:
All of Leviathan's attacks are magical based so stack Magic Defense as high as possible, especially on Barret. Purchase Sorcerer’s Armlets from the nearby shop.
Bring in Magnify-Barrier (Rank 2) so that you can cast Manawall on all your party members just before Tidal Wave, being able to survive this Ultimate Attack is the key to victory.
Leviathan has a lot of HP and no real weakness (even though Assess states Lightning) so expect a lengthy but simple battle provided you can survive Tidal Wave.
