UNLOCK: Capture at least one of every fiend on Mt. Gagazet.

BOSS ANALYSIS : This boss can be a bit nasty to deal with. It has a basic physical and Pop Fly (physical damage + delay), which is nothing much to care about. He can, however, cast Flare and Ultima. Ultima comes as a final attack at least, but it’s very powerful and non-Reflectable. It is possible to avoid the Ultima if the killing blow is from a counterattack.

MAIN STRATEGY : A lot of expectations during the majority of the fight - open with Protect and Shell (or Reflect, if you have Auto-Potion and only X-Potions - that means no Curaga will be needed) if they’re not Auto’d on your armor, then work on weakening the boss, too! Full Break and/or Banishing Blade are good to halve his defenses and his damage further to a now 1/4 of the norm. From there on out, it’s simply healing and attacking, though.

Catoblepas is a standard Behemoth. It has strong physical attacks and its death knell is Ultima so make sure you have Auto-Life on.
