Raspatil is a rare enemy that spawns in the Ashensand’s beach area. Defeating this foe in Normal Mode awards you the Fair Fighter trophy. It doesn’t matter what your * ranking is, just pulverize the foe.
Enemy Tips :
The start of battle is fairly weak - Raspatil pops some small spells, and its physical attack can’t reach you if you’re far away. Debuff Raspatil with Deprotect, Deshell and Imperil to gain a good footing and then focus your attention on your foe’s Chain Gauge.
Eventually Raspatil summons the first wave of up to 4 sidekicks (Vampire, Varcolaci, and Wladislaus). It starts with mostly Varcolaci, then a mix of Vampire and Varcolaci, and in the end mostly Wladislaus.
Wipe the floor with them as soon as you can, or they will be absorbed into the healing orb Raspatil deployed. The more sidekicks that orb absorbs, the more HP Raspatil recovers and the stronger incoming Aleph Zero attacks becomes. Do note that Raspatil’s attacks become stronger with each reinforcement wave as well.
When the Aleph Zero caption appears, switch to SEN/SEN/SEN to reduce the damage, then heal yourself and stagger Raspatil. Raise its Chain Gauge with RAV/RAV/COM and COM/COM/COM combinations until the second reinforcement wave appears. Kill them all or let them be absorbed into the orb, but don’t neglect Raspatil’s Chain Gauge for too long. You want to have it staggered for the second time ASAP. When that happens, dismiss the foe, and then clean up any stragglers afterwards.
Defeated a powerful enemy on equal terms.
