Final Fantasy XII boss guide

We show you how to kick every Judge's ass

This guide will tell you everything you need to know about beating the game’s many bosses. Other than that, we’ll let you explore the game as you see fit - we wouldn’t want to spoil too much now, would we?

1) Firemane

This battle will be much easier if you know the Blizzard spell, so buy it before venturing into the Garamscythe Waterway. Use Protect on Amalia and Vaan to protect them from the Firemane’s attack, and rely on Amalia’s Potion supply to keep them healthy. Meanwhile, take Fran a fair distance away and bombard the Firemane with Blizzard.

2) Mimic Queen

Take direct control of Vaan, and use him to dispatch the Tiny Batteries while your other characters focus on the Mimic Queen. Blizzard spells work well against her, but as she takes damage, she’ll cut loose with high-powered skills like Earth Shaker. Keep your HP up at all costs.
