Zorn and Thorn Boss Battle Guide

Details

FINAL FANTASY IX_20200210141249.jpg

Zorn and Thorn are a weird duo that amplify each other's magic. You can interrupt this by attacking the one that was charged before he uses the move.

Moveset

Each of them can amplify the other's magic. Zorn can use Meteorite which hits the whole party and is more dangerous than Thorn's Light Flare which can only hit a single target.

Strategy

FF9 Zorn and Thorn Boss Fight Timer
Have Vivi hit the clown whose magic was boosted and have Zidane steal their items. Focus Thorn once all the items are stolen as Thorn's HP is lower than Zorn. Onlly one of the two need to be taken down in order for the battle to end.
