Meteor Parasite Boss Battle Guide

Use -Ga Spells on the Tentacles

The most frustrating aspect of the battle with the Meteor Parasite is the two Tentacles which attack from a ranged distance. If you try to handle both of them, you won't have any time to attack Meteor Parasite, so you're forced to leave them be to some extent. You might take some hits, which can inflict Poison, so be sure to have Clear ready.

That said, if you're able to use the -ga tier of Spells like Firaga, that's another story. These Spells will allow you to knock out the Tentacles while simultaneously hitting the Meteor Parasite, so you can go all-in with these.

Elemental Resistance of Tentacles

The effect of each Spell on each Tentacle varies depending on its color.

Red Blue Yellow Grey
Fire Immune Effective Effective Normal
Blizzard Effective Immune Effective Normal
Thunder Effective Effective Immune Normal

Other Spells will deal only minor damage to the Tentacles, and can be safely avoided.

Phase 1: Attack the Core

The most efficient way to dish out damage on the Meteor Parasite is to hit the core, a long tendril which expands out of its body. The attacks of the core itself are weak, so as long as you avoid counterattacks and the tentacles while approaching, you'll be in the clear.

Phase 2: Watch out for its wide-range attacks

The strategy does not vary significantly from Phase 1, but the Meteor Parasite will start using attacks with a wider range, so stay cautious. In particular, after the core draws in, it will use its Slicer laser beam attack, which can only be avoided by hiding on the dunes present on the battlefield.

Phase 3: Stay Away from the Center

In this Phase, the Meteor Parasite will use its Gatling attack, which fires a wave of blue bullets across the field. If you stay near the center, more bullets will hit you which can potentially take a huge chunk of your health. Stay from a distance and use magic attacks to hit the core. The gatling attack is used once everytime the core uses it's exploding attack twice so it is safe to approach the core on every alternate attack from the meteor parasite.

Meteor Parasite Attack Phases

Meteor Parasite Abilities and Attack Patterns

Phase 1

Stream Core (Body)
Biora (Body)
Core Attack (Core)

When close to the Core, it will only use its weaker Core Attack, and when far away it will use two types of Magic attacks. Since the Core is floating above the ground, it's hard to hit, so you'll be safer staying close to the Core and attack it from close-range.

Phase 2

Core Beam (when the core is out)
Slicer laser attack (when the core is inside)

Meteor Parasite will use its Core Beam attack relentlessly in Phase 2. When the Core withdraws inside, it will only use Slicer. This attack is extremely hard to avoid without focus, so this Phase of the fight can tend to drag on. Keep yourself healed up and make sure you can withstand its attacks.

Phase 3

Core Beam (when the core is out)
Gatling bullet attack (when the core is inside)

It uses the same Core Beam as in Phase 2. You won't be able to attack the core when it is using Gatling, so focus on evasion instead.

Phase changes when its HP decreases

As its HP decreases, it will change into its 2nd and 3rd phase. Still, the basic strategy remains the same throughout the fight.

Meteor Parasite Rewards

Artifacts and Items Dropped

Each Boss drops a set of four Artifacts when defeated. The set of Artifacts dropped depends on the current cycle count, number of players, and the number of Bonus Points earned by the players. At high levels, non-Artifact items like rare Materials and Scrolls can also drop.

Players must earn at least the indicated number of Bonus Points for their given player count and cycle to receive a given Set.
