Elementals are invulnerable to all elements except their weakness. And invulnerable to all elemental physical damage, regardless of weakness. And they periodically erect a magical barrier. Therefore, non-elemental physical attacks are the only reliable way to deal damage
Two characters should wear the adamant hat and adamant vest that halves fire damage. Good weapons to equip are the best katana available and the miter, a mace that deals water elemental damage. Miter is best equipped by characters with high magic power, since the maces’ damage calculation uses magic instead of strength.
You can find Yiazmat at the Ridorana Cataract in the Colosseum. RECOMMENDATIONS: I would recommend that all your characters be AT LEAST above level 70, but ideally higher. Your level just can’t be “TOO HIGH” for this fight, even if it’s level 99.
Focusing on the main objectives, Final Fantasy XII is approximately 61 hours long. If you are a gamer who aspires to see all aspects of the game, you will probably spend about 160 hours to 100% complete it.
Basch’s best job
Basch is a soldier, and that means many of his best jobs are in the obvious physical strengths – make him a Shikari, Knight, or Bushi and he’ll do fine – maybe a little less than the latter.
Use an enemy elemental damage and/or major elemental curse weapon. I myself like to have cold and sour types available. You may not always get double damage against them, but they always do some sort of damage instead of hitting the DRs and Immunes.
Yiazmat has over 30 million HP.
Aeronite has the highest potential HP of any boss in the Final Fantasy main series.
Expect to spend between four and eight hours depending on your level, your weapons and just plain luck.
Balthier as an enemy breaker gives you a combo dealing monster, especially when combined with the Shikari or Knight job classes. Just because Balthier’s in-game art portrays him as a machinist doesn’t mean you should make him one; but as a part-time job it makes sense for him.
Fran: Recommended Professions
Fran is not a particularly good archer, but the Archer class is a good fit for second license jobs. Fran can use an MP-based job to go hand-in-hand with her long-range accuracy, and she’s still a decent archer.
Basch’s transition to the Bushi class makes him even deadlier. The Bushi (Samurai) class in the game gives access to katanas, which are some of the better weapons in the game when it comes to combos. It adds another deadly dimension to the character’s already powerful combos.
