Coral Emperor Strategy

Keep Your Magic Defense Buff Up!

Coral Emperor's Blizzaga will deal massive damage to your whole party. without these buffs, your party won't last until the Coral Emperor uses 4 braves to unleash a bunch of Blizzaga at your party.

Always use Godspeed Strike

As the Coral Emperor is weak to daggers, the Thief Job is perfect and its Godspeed Strike makes it way way better.

With a single use, the Thief can deal roughly around 5-6k damage depending on how strong the Thief is.

Avoid Damage with Shieldmaster

If you have managed to unlock and master the Shieldmaster Job, this fight can be a breeze with the proper equipment. Start with your allies in critical health and your Shieldmaster equipped with a Icefire Shield. This will negate all the damage from Coral Emperor's water attacks, allowing your remaining characters to focus on attacking him.

Body Slam Also Works

While not as efficient in terms of damage as the Godspeed Strike, Body Slam is still a decent option to use against the Coral Emperor.

It consumes 1 BP and being vulnerable against a boss that can burst you down is not suggested.

Avoid Using any Magic Spells

Despite what the vulnerability section says, the Coral Emperor will absorb any magic damage dealt to him. Avoid using any spell caster Jobs or spells against the Coral Emperor.

Characters dedicated to a mage build is better off going for a full support setup like a Bard/Pictomancer or even play as a 2nd White Mage.
