Strategy
Just like the previous encounters with Biggs & Wedge, Wedge spawns on a timer. Biggs will be reset to full health if he dies before Wedge spawns.  

There are two ways to go about this:
(i) Defend and wait until Wedge spawns;
(ii) Attack Biggs as per normal but don’t kill him until after Wedge spawns.Otherwise, if Counter Lariat is a problem for you, consider Retaliate.

Strategy
He hits hard, both in physical and magic damage (Ray Bomb). Power/Magic Break will come in handy. Other than that, kill him quick with Thundara Strikes, Thundagas and Thundajas. Make sure you ration abilities!Bringing a Rinoa friend with Angel Wing Bolt (or if you have one yourself) will speed up the fight considerably. I recommend using it on the final fight.

Attack: Deal physical damage to one target.
Strategy
Its physical attacks hit hard. Power Break + Protectga should take care of that (couple that with Sentinel’s Grimoire too if you have it). Given its high health, consider Armor/Mental Break to boost overall dps. Like the previous boss, Angel Wing Bolt will do lots of work! Alternatively, blinding BGH251F2 is another great way to prevent incoming damage. 

Recommended abilities: Power/Armor/Mental Break, Protectga, anything lightning, Blind Buster

His maagic hits hard, and he’s pretty tanky for the first boss. If you brought Blizzara Strike and/or Blizzaga, he should go down fast.

Commentary
Gatling Gun hits like a truck. Make sure the party is topped at all times and shielded with Protectga and/or Sentinel’s Grimoire.Otherwise, treat this like X-ATM: lightning abilities will make the fight end faster. Though there are still the soldiers you have to take care of after that, but they’re not too big of a problem. 

DROPS: Greater Black Orb

Commentary
Look who’s back to haunt us! But this time we’re prepared…. Right? There are no Iguions nor Edea to accompany him this time, so we should be good!

Slow will help a lot here, so will Power Break and Protectga (and Sentinel’s Grimoire for that matter). And if you have played the game long enough, you should be able to craft and hone a well ranked Biora at this point.

I recommend Sentinel’s Grimoire for this fight because not only do Seifer’s slashes hurt, his FIra-all hurts a lot too.

Astral Punch: Deal special physical damage to one target.
Strategy
218000 HP?! Raid boss alert!While Carbuncle may be the first thing that comes to mind as you plan your party/ability loadout, do note that Edea is able to Dispel the whole party. So Carbuncle may or may not be effective here. Runic Blade does sound like it may work wonders, but Edea does a lot of party-wide damaging magic. So the party still takes the damage anyway.

Breaks (Breakdowns preferred) are definitely needed to reduce incoming damage/ boost outgoing damage. Use high grade magic/abilities in conjunction with those break(downs). It is recommended that your -ja spells (if any) be honed to a minimum of rank 3.

Good luck, and enjoy Premonition 🙂

  1. Hey, thank you for a great guide. Mind if I suggest you add “blind” to mitigate BGH251F2’s damage; he is susceptible to it and Mog also suggests it.

    1. Will add it in, thanks!

  2. BGH251F2 drops an greater black orb

    1. Adding it in, thanks!

  3. I got a Black Orb from him.
