How to Defeat Yiazmat · Strategy Guide
Yiazmat has over 50,000 HP, making him far superior to all previous mob hunt marks encountered. Despite this, the player can end the battle by leaving (as long as the party is not wiped-out and thus Game Over) and battle Yiazmat again later. With this method, the player can use the Save Crystal, and restore HP outside of battle. This means that the number of rounds it takes will significantly increase. But since there is no consequence in doing this, you can take as many rounds as you can without worrying about anything.
This section will discuss the method to defeat Yiazmat while utilizing the Magick Reverse.
First, attacking party members should be equipped with weapons having dark attribute such as Masamune or Yagyu Darkblade. For the ally who will cast Reverse, he or she must be equipped with Lordly Robes and Staff of the Magi for higher magick success rate.
When the battle begins, cast Reverse, Bubble, Decoy and Protect on the party member that will distract Yiazmat. As long as the character stays under Reverse, it will be allow the him or her to endure most attacks. But it’s important to point out a view things about the Reverse status.
Characters under Reverse status will still be affected by instant death spells, since Reverse only works to “reverse” damage received. Therefore, Reversed characters will still be killed by instant death spells.
In such cases, if the character under Reverse is suddenly knocked out, replace the decoy with one a reserve character from the party.
Revive the knocked out decoy and replace him again with the character distracting the boss by casting Decoy and Reverse on him or her again. When any of your attackers is knocked out, revive them with Phoenix Down.
The attacker can use Bacchus Wine on himself to go into Berserk status to increase damage even more.
If the number of knocked out characters rises, move out of the area and use the Save Crystal to recover. Then, return to Yiazmat’s location and resume the battle.

|12||Self: MP <20%||Hi Ether|
When Yiazmat’s HP becomes less than 20%, the battle against the him will become more intense. This turning point becomes very important, so it is recommended to save when you are at this phase of the battle.
Yiazmat will use the Tecnkick Growing threat when his HP reaches less than 20%. This makes his attack power and defense rise dramatically. He will also tend to attack with the Attack CT0 augment, as well as use Deathbed and Cyclone during this stage. Since it will no longer inflict Stop on targets, remove the Ribbon from attacking characters and equip them with Armguards for them to always be in Berserk status.
Yiazmatt will attack more frequently during this stage, so it makes very difficult to cast Reverse.
If you find it hard to recover MP, you can leave the battle and recover. As you resume the fight, cast Reverse, Protectga, Hastega and Shellga.
As you begin the battle, one member of the party (under Reverse so he or she will not be knocked out) should distract Yiazmat. Remember to use Dispel on Yiazmat’s protective buffs. Eventually, Yiazmat will use Reflectga on the party, which should be Dispelled before it uses Renew on a party member to heal himself.
