UNLOCK: Capture at least one of every fiend on the Djose Highroad.
BOSS ANALYSIS : Not a lot to this boss fight. The most dangerous attack you’ll see is Cold Stare, which hits a character for unblockable damage that can also Petrify them. You’ll see it somewhere around 25% ~ 40% of the time if you’re me. Which you’re not, but whatever. There’s also a basic physical and Spacetime Vorpal (magical damage to all). That doesn’t seem too bad, but a basic physical here will shatter a Petrified character, eliminating 33% of your party outright.
MAIN STRATEGY : Stoneproof or Ribbon are crucial for this battle. With either one, Cold Stare is just mild damage, and the other two attacks are barely moreso. Open with your usual blockades if you must (Hastega/Protect/Shell) and simply attack and heal as needed. It’s noteworthy that this boss is resistant to Slow and all of the statistic breaks; the latter is very helpful if you prefer a magic-oriented offense because this guy will tank through those.
