How to Beat Naga

Dedicate At Least One Turn to Debuff

Use Tarunda or War Cry to lower its Phys/Magic Attacks. You will take less damage if you debuff its attacks.

Use Rakunda to lower its defense, to make it more vulnerable to your attacks. Alternatively, you can use Fog Breath or Sukunda as these debuffs will decrease its chance of dodging your attacks.

Buff Allies Before Attacks

fog breath

Use a buff like Focus or Tarukaja before using a Phys attack. This allows you to maximize your Phys Attack's damage output in the short turns you get.

Use a buff like Makakaja before using a Magic skill. This allows you to maximize your Magic Attack's damage output in the short turns you get.

No Resistance Against Phys Attacks

Naga has no resistance against Phys Attacks, so don't hesitate to use these types of attacks on it.

No Resistance Against Magic Attacks Except for Elec

fire

Naga has resistance against Elec, but be comfortable using other elemental Magic attacks, especially Fire as this is its weakness.

Don't Use Elec as Naga Absorbs It

absorb

Never use Elec attacks as Naga will just absorb the damage and turn it into HP.

Have At Least One Dedicated Healer in Your Party

Summon demons that have Dia or Media so your party can restore HP as you move along the battle. This will be ideal especially in situations wherein you have no available Recovery items on hand.
