How to Beat Tiamat


FF XII Tiamat?
The boss fight against Tiamat is relatively easy. The only thing you have to watch out for against this boss is its ridiculously high HP and its preference for the White Magick Dispelga.


Tiamat's most annoying move—and one that it is fond of spamming—is Disablega. This move prevents any afflicted party member from making any action. Tiamat also uses Aero frequently, which is a Wind-element AoE spell. Then there's Breath, a cone-shaped AoE attack which inflicts Sap to anyone unfortunate enough to be caught in its path.

FF XII How to Beat Tiamat
The standard strategy for the other bosses works here as well. Apply buffs such as Protect, Shell, and Haste to all your party members then have a healer focus on healing the frontlines attackers.

It is suggested to save your Quickening until Tiamat's health reaches Critical Status before taking him out. This is to avoid having to deal with his augmented defense.
