List of Contents
Spell-weaving lizards with wings that are usually found floating about the train graveyard.
Hitting them with wind spells and inflicting a certain amount of damage makes them susceptible to staggering. The icy winds that surround them are harmful, but can be temporarily stilled with spells of an element other than ice.
Enemy skills can be learned from this monster.

|Cloud||Role: Attacker & Healer
Weapon: Iron Blade
Armor: Iron Bangle
Accessory: Power Wristguards
Weapon: Leather Gloves
Armor: Star Bracelet
Accessory: Power Wristguards
|Weapon (3 Slots)|
|Armor (1 Slot)|
Use Fire as Cloud's main damage dealing attack since the Cerulean Drake mostly flies around and might make it difficult to hit with melee attacks.
|Weapon (3 Slots)|
|Armor (2 Slots)|
Spam Aero to exploit its weakness and easily stagger it.
|Phase Point Summary|
|1||The Cerulean Drake will fly around the area while attacking. It will frequently use Blizzard than its other attacks.|
The Cerulean Drake is weak against wind-elemental attacks. If you have already acquired the Wind Materia from Chadley, use its Aero to quickly finish it off.
While its Icy Aura is active, staying too close to it will cause continuous damage, which will make it more difficult to use melee attacks. Use any spell other than Blizzard until the aura wears off.
The Cerulean Drake will sometimes cast Frozen Barbs to one of your characters. While this is active, the Cerulean Drake will passively and continuously shoot frozen air at the inflicted character.

The gameplay isn't enough to scoff at either, even without talking about the story, I would say that this is one of the best games on the PS4
If you complete the game and go to Chapter 17 with Chapter Select, you will be able to find Chadley near the start of the chapter and access all the VR missions with any three characters of your choice. Hope this helps!
