|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.|
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.
