Battle Strategy

Prior to the battle, stock up on some handkerchiefs and be sure to have remedy on hand to wipe off the Oil that would otherwise put you in a dangerous situation. A rather risky tactic is to call upon the Esper Belias, however do not allow him to execute his final attack, as this will put you at a disadvantage.

A suggested tactic is to continue with the Main Story before you attempt this boss fight. When the battle starts, some normal bombs will spawn and side with the boss. Take out the mob, but spare one normal bomb to prevent the King Bomb from calling for a new wave. It will soon attempt to coat your characters with Oil, which enhances its Fire attacks. Lift its effects immediately to avoid being punished by its fire attacks.

When its HP falls to 50%, he will begin casting Renew. It will continue to do it more frequently after you bring it down to 25% HP. At this phase, trigger Quickenings to take him out for good. If RNG rolls in your favor, he will stop casting Renew and you can whittle him down until he falls.
