Sanctuary Keeper Boss Guide

Have Lulu, Yuna, and Tidus in your starting party. Make Tidus cast Hastega at the start, enabling Lulu to cast Bio and Yuna to cast Reflect on the boss. Then, switch in your heavy hitter party members to build up their Overdrives. Take advantage of Auron’s Armor Break and Mental Break.

Keep in mind that the boss will continuously inflict status effects like Sleep, Silence, Darkness, and Confusion throughout the battle. As such, it is very important for Yuna remain in your active party to act as primary healer and support. This is especially the case when the boss uses Curaga and Yuna is able to cast Reflect prior. A reflected Curaga will become a bonus heal for your party instead.
