Enemy Encounters

Name Notes
Pantheron A fleeting inconvenience
Thexteron Fairly high HP so aim for quick Stagger; casts Bravery on itself.
Watchdrone Very fast, powerful combination attacks so heal when these occur.
Pulsework Soldier Weak against Lightning, high HP but entirely passive when Staggered.

Win the easy event battle, and then control switches to Sazh and Vanille.

After the cinematics, your party will be thrust immediately into a battle with a quartet of Pantherons who are easily disposed of.

Cross the bridge with Sazh and then try to run up the path. Your way will be blocked and a scene will ensue. After the long cinematics, you will be introduced to an explanation on the Synergist role. Synergists act as a support role by buffing characters with positive effects. They are especially useful for strong enemies like bosses and towards the end of the game, are almost essential.

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?
