Strategy

How to defeat Sanctuary Keeper

Start by attacking the boss with Bio or Rikku’s Poison Fang to continuously damage it throughout the fight. To prevent it from using Curaga, you can cast Reflect.

Have the party deal physical damage. You can use Auron’s Power Break, Armor Break, and Magic Break to make Sanctuary Keeper more vulnerable to damage while weakening its attacks as well. Rikku’s Smoke Bomb can blind the boss to reduce the chance of getting hit by its counterattacks. Cast Protect and Shell on the party to minimize damage when the boss does not miss.

With Reflect still active, use a Silver Hourglass to inflict Slow on the boss. It will retaliate with Haste, though the spell will be reflected back to the party.

Be sure to stock up on Remedy and Holy Water to cure any status ailments caused by Photon Wings.
