Amphora Strategy

Capture a Vishno

Bravely Default II - Vishno

There are huge enemies in the Mansion called Vishno. Using Off the Leash for Vishno will make it use a barrage of attacks that can deal around 1000 - 1500 damage per use.

Capturing 4 of them can help with quickly defeating Amphora during its dangerous critical phase.

Control Its Aggro

Amphora is vulnerable to poison so make sure to apply it as soon as possible. Also, almost all of Amphora's attacks are single target attacks so having a Vanguard with Enrage is extremely helpful for the fight.

Have the Vanguard focus on alternating between defaulting and using Enrage then unleashing a 4 turn burst when BP reaches max.

Since the Vanguard is taking all the damage, have a White Mage focus on healing the tank while others unleash attacks on Amphora

Counter Amphora's Supercharged-Thundara Combo with Muzzle

Amphora Thundara Cancel Silenced

Amphora's critical HP state will have it start comboing Supercharged and Thundara for a potential team wipe in a single turn.

To avoid this, have a Beastmaster focus on using Muzzle to silence Amphora once its HP falls below 8000.

From here, make sure to finish the battle fast as Amphora can recover from Silence after a few turns.
