List of Contents
(Three Sage Summit)
|Appearance Condition||Chapter 17
|Demon Purging Fire||Deals massive damage to a huge area and inflicts Blaze and Paralysis|
|Ultra Tail Strike||Inflicts Topple to all targets hit.|
|Ultra Air Crush X||Inflicts massive damage to a single unit.|
|Night Vision||Increases the accuracy of physical attacks during the night by (%).|
|Divine Protect||Grants resistance against Instant Death by (%).|
|Topple Plus||Extends the duration for which an enemy suffers Topple by (%).|
|Topple Resist||Grants resistance against Topple by (%).|
The highest leveled enemy and the strongest as well. You're going to need all the gems listed above with the exception of Divine Protect. Divine Protect does the same job as Debuff Resist but poorly, swap out Divine Protect for Debuff Resist immediately to counter Abaasy's other debuff moves.
Topple Resist is optional as well since Abaasy's Tail Strike Topple can be dodged by a Chain Attack (albeit, difficult).
Not entirely necessary with Haste Gems equipped but helpful nonetheless. Allows you to use a defensive Monado Art in a pinch.
|Shoulder to Shoulder||Heals the party after a chain attack (10%).||
|Friendship Heals||Heals the party slightly after a chain attack (5%).||
Extremely helpful against Abaasy's Demon Purging Fire. Allows your team to time a Chain Attack while Abaasy uses it to survive with 1 HP then end the Chain Attack with everyone in half health.
|Showdown Stance||All Stats Up buff at start of battle with higher-level monsters (30%, 30 sec)||
Skills that provides buffs when battling against higher leveled enemies are highly recommended against Super Bosses and Avalanche Abaasy is no exception.
|Ties of Friendship||Increases chance of a Chain Link (5%).||
|Chain of Friendship||Increases the chance of a Chain Link (15%).||
More arts used in a single chain attack is always welcome.
With Shulk as the leader, this is our recommended party setup for Avalanche Abaasy. They all have several red physical arts that can deal insane damage during Chain Attacks. With proper gems and skills, even Reyn will be able to hit Avalanche Abaasy.
Avalanche Abaasy is the highest leveled enemy in the game. It also sports extremely high damage with its arts and it also has a nasty spike ability that inflicts instant death!
You will want to only use physical arts when they provide bonus effects to fill up the party gauge and inflicts some debuffs. With Haste Gems, Shulk's monado activate should be up at all time and should only be used to use Armour or use a Speed / Shield against an attack that can deal massive damage.
When a Chain Attack becomes available, you will want to start with a Stream Edge/ Air Slash to apply break (Stream Edge to fill the talent gauge, Air Slash to apply Slow). Follow it up with 2 Topple Arts from Dunban and Reyn then follow it with Cyclone so you can switch to offensive arts. Continue Chaining with high damaging arts like Worldly Slash, Soaring Tempest, Lariat, and Sword Drive for massive damage!
Abaasy will awaken when it's on low health, think of it as Crazed on steroids. Avalanche Abaasy will become insanely strong during the last stretch of the fight. Forget about Toppling and when using Chain Attacks, you'll want to use Shadow Eye first then Air Slash, Peerless, Berserk, Buster, Worldly Slash, then Sword Drive. Continue using other red physical arts to eventually bring Abaasy down!
Increases the duration of Daze against targets.
Increases damage to Dazed enemies.
Debuff Resist Crystals are also available from Avalanche Abaasy. It grants resistance to all debuffs. Blow Down, Topple, and Daze are not included.
Increases your damage to Toppled enemies. Might not prove any use anymore since the strongest enemy in the game has already been defeated.
All Super Bosses drops the Veritas Glyph and Avalanche Abaasy is no exception.
A quest item for crafting the Replica Monado 4. It is only available from two enemies: Avalanche Abaasy and Demon King Dragonia.
|Final Marcus||Ancient Daedala|
|Despotic Arsene||Blizzard Belgazas|
