This page contains information about the boss Hydro from the game Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age (FF XII, FF12). Read on to know more about this boss fight including the boss' moveset and strategies to use against it.
The undead dragon, Hydro, can negate your party's Magicks thanks to its Curse skill. Being of the undead class, Hydro is weak to Holy-based spells. Healing spells as well as Holy-based White Magicks are the weakness of this undead boss.
The Uhlan shines in this battle with the weapon Holy Lance. It is wise to have fighters which have Remedy Lore 3 purchased in the License Boards in this battle. Because of the Curse skill, the party should rely heavily on items for recovery. Having a potent stock of X-Potions is a great move.
Out of all Hydro's skills, the move to watch out for is Fearga. This skill reduces the MP of all targets hit by 95%. Hydro can also inflict Immobilize, Disease, Sap, Doom, and Poison, among his other skills.
|Self : HP <50%||X-potion|
|Foe nearest visible:||Attack|
Once you have the Uhlan with the Holy Lance in your party, immediately use Bacchus Wine / Berserk on him / her. Otherwise, the gambit above is enough to win the battle with 3 damage dealers attacking Hydro (although a tad bit slower than with an Uhlan equipped with Holy Lance in your party).
