Ahriman is a boss found in the Sochen Cave Palace and in Trial Mode. This creature is born from the impure black soil that can be found in the Sochen Cave Palace. the black soil came from the darkness and corruption of the hearts that the monks and ascetics purified inside the cave. The darkness has never left the area, manifesting into an abominable creature.

Battle Strategy

Before fighting Ahriman, you should at least have Shell and have mastered Remedy Lores in your arsenal. The hardest ability that you have to deal with while fighting the boss is Doom. It is easier to counter this if you have enough Remedies.

When the boss summons clones of itself, it will be harder for you to find the real one. To easily spot him, cast Regen on Ahriman at the start of the battle. This will mark Ahriman with the healing, making it easy to pick out.
