Battle Strategy

1st Form

Protectga and Hastega will be very useful against Gabranth’s first form. Eventually, Gabranth will become immune to magick, so focus on attacking him with physical attacks and casting buffs on the party. During this phase, Gabranth’s attacks will all deal physical damage.

2nd Form

Use Dispel on Gabranth when he casts Haste and Protect on himself. Be prepared to use Curaja when Gabranth is at 50% health, as he will use Renew on himself and perform a powerful attack called Innocence. At 25% health, Gabranth’s defense will increase and he will use Innocence more frequently. Be careful of his tendency to combo, which also increases in this phase. When he is near death, you can use a Quickening chain to finish him off.

Trial Mode

The party will fight Gabranth with the four other Judges. He and Zargabaath are the enemy’s main physcial attackers. They will also heal each other when either is low on HP.

Casting Sleep on Zargabaath is recommended to stop him from dealing damage or helping Gabranth with heals. From here, focus on defeating Gabranth as quickly as possible before moving to Zargabaath.

Gabranth can deal high amounts of damage very quickly and can block attacks well. It is recommended to have the Cameo Belt accessory equipped this fight. You can try to obtain a Tournesol by stealing it from him and having a Knight use it in combat. You can also reduce his defense by using the Expose technick.
