Monster Guide

1) Mindflayer Strategy

A) Mission Information

  • Mission Name – The Mine Flayer
  • Location: Phase 1 Dig area – Henne Mines. Talk to the garif Asdalu in the Staging Shaft of Henne Mines and he will take you to the boss.

B) Mindflayer Monster Information

Level HP MP Weakness LP
35 31,161 999 None 18
Attacks Steal Reward
Thundara, Drain, Time Requiem (Inflicts Stop), Dark Shock (Inflicts Sap + Blind), Fira, Blizarra, Bio, Invert, Mystery Waltz, Hero’s March (Protect + Shell + Haste + Bravery + Faith), and Soul Etude (Healing) Pebble, Float Mote, and Vanishga Mote 2,200 gil, and Carmagnole

C) Battle Strategy

The Mindflayer will use different elemental magicks during the first half of the battle. During the second half of the battle, it will use Soul Etude to fully recover its HP and MP and Hero’s March to cast Protect, Shell, Haste, Bravery, and Faith on itself.

This boss is quite difficult to deal with due to its wide variety of attacks. You can cast Berserk on the boss to prevent it from casting magick. However, the Mindflayer may eventually cast Invert to cure itself of Berserk.

Regularly cast Shell on your party members to minimize the damage of the enemy’s magic attacks.

2) Braegh Strategy

A) Mission Information

  • Mission Name – Rodeo to the Death
  • Location: Corridor of Ages – Salikawood

B) Braegh Monster Information

Level HP MP Weakness LP
35 43,283 17 Ice 17
Attacks Steal Reward
Berserk, Invert, Rush, Snake Lash, and Thundara Storm Magicite, Storm Crystal, and Grimoire Aidhed 1,700 Gil, Obelisk, and Hi-Ether

C) Battle Strategy

Reflect is very effective against this boss.

Since ice is its weakness, equip at least one of your party members with Icebrand and buff them with Berserk and Haste. This will make the boss much easier to deal with.

3) Darksteel Strategy

A) Mission Information

  • Mission Name – Shelled Obstruction
  • Location: Temptation Eluded area – Sochen Cave Palace

B) Darksteel Monster Information

Level HP MP Weakness LP
38 111,331 999 Holy 21
Attacks Steal Reward
Power Spin (Inflicts Slow), Flatten, Darkra, Restore, Meditate, Purify, Stone Gaze, and Protect Eyedrops, Aged Turtle Shell, and Ancient Turtle Shell 3,000 gil, Adamantite, and Lead Bolts

C) Battle Strategy

You can cast Slow on the Darksteel to decrease its speed. This will help keep the enemy’s speed in check, as it increases every time the boss casts Darkga.

The Nihopalaoa + Remedy trick will work against this boss. Using this trick inflicts the boss with multiple status ailments.

If the Darksteel is inflicted with status ailments, it will run around chasing one of your party members. Place a party member as a decoy for the boss to chase, then attack with your remaining party members.
