Battle Strategy

First Battle

Any physical attack directed at Cid is useless if the Rooks are still alive. Kill the four Rooks before concentrating on defeating Cid. Attack the Rooks with normal attacks. Then, after defeating them, immediately dispatch Doctor Cid.

Cid also has a powerful attack called the S-27 Tokamak, which can be avoided by standing behind him. Once Doctor Cid’s HP reaches 70%, the battle will end.

Second Battle

The same strategy as the first battle, although this time Cid is accompanied by Famfrit instead of Rooks. Stand behind him when he unleashes the S-85 Cyclotron, a much more powerful attack than the Tokamak.
