Demons Gate Boss Strategy

Position the Party in the Back

Putting your party in the back row reduces the damage the boss can deal.

Use Haste to Keep Up with the Boss

The boss is very fast and can deal large amounts of damage in a short amount of time. Casting Haste lets you keep up with it, especially with healing and reviving any party members that need attention.

Use Big Guard or Barrier to Mitigate Damage

Defensive tools like Skill Big Guard and Barrier can help you minimize some of the damage done to the party. The battle is one of the most challenging in the game, and low-level characters are likely to struggle.

Great Gospel and Fury Brand Make the Fight Very Easy

Getting Aerith’s Great Gospel Limit Break will take away much of the fight’s challenge If you don’t have it, using Fury Brand to instantly charge allies’ Limit Breaks makes up for it by way of stacking more damage. Having Vincent morph into Death Gigas allows you to dish out a good amount of damage with Gigadunk.
