Strategy for Enemies

Four elementals come in handy for this chapter and it’s a matter of when you use them. When starting the chapter, assign Ice and Wind materia since the enemies are prone to these elementals. Terpsicolt are weak to Ice, whereas the Lesser Drake are prone to Wind. In addition, the Lightning materia comes in handy against a new enemy, the Sweeper Prototype. Last but not the least, have the Fire materia set before you approach the door past the narrow beam. The last elemental makes quick work of Beck and his group.

Sweeper Prototype appears after operating the console. Switch to Lightning materia to take them out swiftly.

After crossing the narrow beam, swap to the fire materia as you wait by the door. The trio that you’re about to face are vulnerable to fire damage. Using fire elemental immobilizes the three, preventing them from crippling you with stun.

With the encounter against Beck’s goons marks the spawn of bandit enemies in the area. When you encounter these enemy types, prioritize on knocking them out first to prevent valuables from getting stolen.
