How to beat Ahriman


FF XII Ahriman
Ahriman is a specter type enemy that mostly uses offensice Magicks to deal with your entire party.

This boss is tough because it can split itself up to six with its skill, Divide. These clones are capable of damaging the player, and aside from them, the Ahriman can use several status ailments to turn the battle increasingly into its favor.


Ahriman has access to Tier-2 Black Magick spells Fira, Blizzara, and Thundara. It also has Toxify, a move that inflicts the Poison status ot enemies around Ahriman's AOE. Phantasmal Gaze, meanwhile, inflicts the Confuse status on its target.

FF XII Ahriman Boss Fight
The easiest way to go about fighting the Ahriman is to issue commands to your White Mage to cast Regen on Ahriman. Being an Undead-type enemy, Ahriman will be affected by Regen in the same way Poison deals damage to the entire party. It can also serve as a marker to separate the real Ahriman from the rest of its summoned clones.

Aside from the opening move, the entire battle is easy but lengthy. Brewing yourself a coffee might be a good thing, but Ahriman won't be dealt with just yet when you return, thanks to its considerably high HP pool.
