Gwydion's abilities change depending on the battle's state. When he stays on the ground, physical attacks are not recommended thanks to his ability to reflect physical damage back at the attacker.
While flying, he gains the ability to absorb magical attacks, so all magical abilities are negated. Play according to Gwydion's state.
Weapons like the Darksteel Kukri are highly recommended for your physical attackers.
Gwydion halves all physical damage types aside from staves and barehanded so having a dark elemental weapon to negate the halved damage will make damaging Gwydion much more effective.
To abuse the Shieldmaster's passive, set everyone's (aside from the Shieldmaster) HP to critical status.
With this setup, the Shieldmaster will block all of Gwydion's attacks and only his physical attacks will deal damage to your party.
After Gwydion returns to the ground again, his attacks will gain the Indiscriminate Rage's ability which allows his attacks to hit everyone. Since the Shieldmaster takes 4 attacks, dying to Gwydion will be unavoidable.
To survive, use Elemental Supplement on Gwydion and adding an elemental resistance to your shieldmaster will allow your team to survive it.
The Sanctuary move can also be used to survive Gwydion's attacks until he returns to his flying state.
Gwydion, despite being a large monster, actually has an extremely high evasion rate. Amping up your attacker's accuracy rate is vital to dealing damage to Gwydion.
The Freelancer, Beastmaster, Ranger, and Bravebearer all posses high accuracy rates so we highly suggest using one of these as your physical attacker's main Job and equipping them with a Vanguard Sub-Job and the Sub-Job Speciality 2 to jack up the damage stat through the roof.
Gwydion has the ability White Wind. It'll start using it when his HP reaches critical levels so when its HP is about to get low, stock up on MP and BP to blast the dragon with your strongest attacks!
