Strategy

Zirnitra is a right two-faced bastard, hitting hard, afflicting you with Poison, and absorbing a lot of the spells you might attempt to throw at it. You’ll want to first focus on evening the odds with a Medic to keep everyone healthy and a Saboteur to negate some of his defenses and slow him down. Switch to a Synergist role to increase your abilities once you’ve managed to hold him off for a while (a Sentinel helps greatly with this). He only takes 180% to Stagger, but getting him to that point with your party still alive is the challenge – once you’ve got everyone boosted and saddled him with a few downgrades, set a pair of your party on the offense and keep one in the background for healing duty. This won’t be the last encounter with Zirnitra, and it won’t get any easier, either.
