Enemy Strategy

The chapter consists of many new enemy encounters namely the Ringmaw and Varghidpolis which occur fairly early, the Bugaboo comes at the middle, and the Unknown Entity near the end. The latter two share a common weakness to Ice, so having this materia helps tremendously.

The Bugaboo is an insect that struggles against Wind but thankfully has low health. With Barret, you can take them out using weapons in no time.

Meanwhile, the Ringmaw doesn’t appreciate Lightning, so make sure to have this materia equipped. Meanwhile the Varghidpolis is weak against Ice materia.

Near the end of the chapter, you’ll encounter Unknown Entities. These enemies suffer from Ice element, so make use of attacks like Magnify Blizzard to make quick work of them.
