Ornitholestes Boss Battle Guide


FFX Ornitholestes

Overdrive mode Comrade
Armor Auto-Haste, Auto-Phoenix
Ability Entrust


Poison Touch deals fractional damage to a single target and inflicts poison
Drain Touch Inflicts massive damage to a single target and drains 100% of damage dealt


Ornitholestes has extremely high evasion similar to Fenrir. Take damage from Ornitholestes intentionally to build up your Overdrives and keep using it unti Ornitholestes is defeated. Having someone with no damaging Overdrive with the entrust ability allows that character to refill someone else's overdrive gauge making the fight faster to complete.

Low Damage Team Strategy

Weapon Zombie Touch or Zombie Strike
Ability Zombie Attack
Armor Poison Proof

This is a setup for a low damage/ low accuracy team. Ornitholestes' lethal attack is the poison effect from Poison Touch and the damage from Drain Touch. By blocking the Poison Touch and inflicting Zombie to yourself, you block both of Ornitholestes' kill options (Zombie will damage Ornitholeses and heal you if it uses Drain Touch).
