Battle Strategy

You’ll fight Tiamat in Henne Mines.  It’s best to have a party of at least level 25 to easily wipe out the boss. With Larsa at your side, it shouldn’t be that hard.

Note that Tiamat raises its defenses as its health falls. Use Esuna or a Remedy on characters affected by Tiamat’s Disablega. Tiamat also uses Sap, which is curable by applying Regen. Larsa will use a lot of Hi-Potions, so keep him alive. Have the party spread out the arena by using ranged weapons. Larsa will heal low HP characters. Arm yourself with buffs like Shell, Protect, and Regen and barrage the dragon with Quickenings. Focus your AI characters on attacking the monster.
