How to Defeat Hashmal

Points to Consider

  • One of the story Espers
  • Also one of FFXII's most difficult bosses
  • Has one of the game's offensive Earth-element attacks
  • Float and Bubble are useful against him

In-Depth Battle Walkthrough

Hashmal is one of FFXII's esper bosses fought during the story walkthrough. His abode is the Pharos, and he is one of the game's most difficult bosses. He uses Quakeja, which can already KO weak party members. He can also inflict Petrify, while his standard attacks deals Disease. He doesn't inflict combo damage, but instead, uses Roxxor more often while making himself invincible to damage.

Hashmal is pretty easy when the player has access to the spells Float and Bubble, though. This negates the Disease effect of his attacks, as well as the damae from his Quakega spell. If not, the party should use Remedy as well as the spell Cleanse. Hashmal won't fall down just like that, but it's easy to defeat him while keeping a combo of Float, Bubble/Cleanse, as well as some form of attack involving strong physical combos or magicks, as well as Quickening.
