Eidolon Battle: Alexander

Alexander is Hope Estheim's Eidolon, and he is fought by Hope, Lightning, and Fang in the Vallis Media, as a test to prove Hope's worthiness.

Alexander is slow, but hits hard. From the start of battle wait until Hope gives everyone Protect and Shell, while Fang defends, drawing Alexander's attention. Once everyone is protected, switch to setup and let him have it. After he smacks you one, switch to and heal yourself, then return to and alternate as necessary. When the Gestalt gauge is full, press Square/X to be victorious.

You'll obtain the Alexander Eidolith Key Item after the battle.

Hope's ATB gauge will increase by one segment, bringing his total to 4 (or 5, if you already bought the ATB node in the Crystarium).

Six people, from very different backgrounds, get thrown together in a series of tumultuous events. A Pulse fal'Cie (a demi-god) has been found in the seaside town of Bodhum, a place where the fates of everyone converge and the discovery sets in motion a chain of events that will change the world forever. An innocent fireworks display in the town soon turns nasty when government soldiers storm the peaceful celebration and commit everyone to the Purge (sending individuals "contaminated" by the Pulse fal'Cie into exile). This is where your story and legend begins. Can you fight fate?
