He counterattacks with thunder. Magic Break it and/or Silence to make the fight more manageable.

Alternatively, if you have Carbuncle, you can use it to trivialize the whole fight. Scarmiglione’s counter-Thunder will always be reflected.

Scarmiglione is also an undead. Recovery spells are effective against it.

Abilities Attack: Deal physical damage to one target.
Curse Elegy (Counter): Slow on all targes.
Gas (Counter): Poison, Silence, Blind and Sleep on all targets.

The transformed Scarmiglione has a counter mechanic, and depending on what triggers the counter, he will use different abilities:

  • Physical attacks will be countered with Curse Elegy.
  • Fire attacks will be countered with Gas.

You shouldn’t be worried about Gas at all since we want to defeat it without using fire attacks.

Scarmiglione has high DEF and RES this time, bringing Armor/Mental Break(down) is a good idea.

Also, he is an undead. So recovery spells will deal damage.

Recommended abilities: Armor/Mental Break(down)
Recommended RW:
 Any
