Slyt is the second of the Pharos' bosses. He has a different augment that is based on its current terrain. His unique ability is that the lower his HP gets, he gets stronger.


Slyt doesn't have any flashy moves apart from its normal attacks. However, he has an Enrage skill that gives his attack a Charge Time 0 augment, making him attack faster.

Slyt boss battle
Getting a Black Mage into the fight can work due to Slyt's vulnerability to Oil. While damaging Slyt with a combination of Fire magick and Oil, keep an eye out for when Slyt's damage is nearing the red mark. That's when he enters into a Critical state.

Once the debuffs have been set, keep blasting Slyt with Fire spells. You can also do a Quickening chain in the end to give him no time to attack at all.
