How to Beat Judge Bergan


FF XII Judge Bergan
The Judge Bergan is a heavy attacker. At low HP, your party should watch out, as he chains his combos fast. As if the fact that he hits hard is not enough, he also comes with three extra Judges that could make the battle a little more harder.


He is fond of physical attacks, but your party should also watch out for the odd Aero and Watera that he casts at the beginning of the battle.

When his HP is running low, he will cast Enrage on himself. This will buff his defense and also makes his hits stronger. This will also cause Bergan's combo rate to go up.

FF XII Judge Bergan Battle Strategy
Your party should include a Black Mage at the beginning of the fight alongside the tank/damage dealer. Your first priority should be to dispatch the three Judges before Bergan is close to your party. Once the Judges are history, switch out the Black Mage with the Time Battlemage to quickly (heh) cast Haste on your current party.

Once Haste is applied, switch out the Time Battlemage with another damage dealer. Your White Mage should be able to handle casting Raise on party-members who are KO'd by Bergan's combo. As Bergan's attacks only ever focus on one enemy at a time, your party will surely win this one. Time for a victory coffee.
