Aranea Movesets

Known as the 'Dragoon,' Aranea Highwind can cause heavy damage against the party. She is fond of using her signature skill, Highwind, which portrays her jumping from above and attacking with her preferred weapon, the Stoss Spear. When she becomes a member of the party as a guest, she will use Highwind as a party skill, helping Noctis' group defeat many enemies at once.

How to Beat Aranea

Aranea Highwind becomes a guest party member later on, but Noctis first clashes with her as an enemy. She uses Highwind frequently, making her hard to track and fight. However, this is also the best way to damage her--block her attack, then parry with an attack of your own. Aranea's attacks can also continuously sap Noctis' MP. Using the Ring of the Lucii against her, while using Holy, is a good way of regaining MP, although it wouldn't damage her as much as normal attacks.

      Hi! Thank you for your question :)
      Noctis needs to sneak behind the Black Chocobo until Ignis distracts it. The player should keep the chocobo inside his field of view to see if it is looking around, if so, Noctis needs to duck (hold square). Keep on doing this while also moving towards the chocobo until Ignis distracts it. While it is distracted, pick up the glasses then run away before the timer ends.
