The Stagger Effect Pt. 1 Guide

You have to use Unique Abilities


To complete this Battle Report, you have to use your character's Unique Ability on foes. To trigger Unique Abilities, simply press △ with any character in battle. After the mesage comes up saying that the enemy is staggered, press △ and go to town on it.

Enemies have more HP on higher difficulty levels

The other important factor in completing this report is that you need to be able to stagger an enemy. If their HP is too low, you will finish them off before getting a chance to stagger them, so if you are on Easy Mode, try changing the difficulty up to Normal Mode to make this Battle Report easier (the irony).

In order to see how much HP an enemy has left, you can use the Assess Materia.
