Chapter 2 - Pulse Vestige

Chapter 2 - Pulse Vestige

Animas Throne

Anima

(Left) Enemy Intel. (Right) Anima is the first fal'Cie the party faces.

Anima Stats
Level / HP LV 88 / 3,300 HP
Strength / Magic 31 STR / 57 MAG
Stagger / Chain Res. / CP 300% / 100 Chain Resist / 0 CP
Vulnerabilities None
Common Drop / Rare Drop Doctor's Code (100%) / None

There are three targets - you win after you destroy Anima. Attacking the Manipulators is recommended. Once you destroy both of them, Anima will waste precious seconds in reviving them. Don’t neglect to heal with Potions, because damage output towards characters is high. Thanks to the Fortisol (if you used one), you’ll be attacking quite fast. Assault the Manipulators until they bite the dust, then pester Anima until its sidekicks are once more revived. Kill them again, and remove the rest of Anima’s HP to achieve a well deserved victory.

After the battle you get Doctor’s Code x5 (which doubles the effect of Potions).
