Silver Dragon Boss Battle Guide

Silver Dragon uses a lot of team-wide attacks. Having a healer for this fight as well as Wind resistant equipment is crucial.


The deadliest move in the Silver Dragon's arsenal is Twister, a Wind elemental attack that deals massive damage to the whole party. It can also use Claw, a high damaging physical attack.

Aerial Slash is a weaker Wind elemental attack, while Shock Wave is a weak non-elemental attack.

Having the abilities Mag Element Nul and Return Magic will greatly aid the party in this battle. If Vivi and Steiner are in the party, have Steiner repeatedly use Ice-elemental Sword Magic against the Silver Dragon. Have a healer focus on healing the damage dealt by the Silver Dragon's attacks.
