Hopefully this guide will help you in defeating Evrae quite easily. It took me over 10 tries before I formed a strategy using my available spells and character strengths. If you need any more help with Final Fantasy X, e-mail me at [email protected] Enjoy! Note: You donít need to have all the recommended spells/abilitiesí! Just having Haste will make this fight slightly easier. Recommended Spells/Abilities: Tidus: Haste/Hastaga, Slow/Slowga. Lulu: 2nd level elemental spells (e.g. Blizzara, Thundara). Auron: Auron best ability is high damage when hitting normally or with his specials. Iíd try to make sure he can hit over 1,200+ damage per hit (not too difficult as long as youíve used him in a fair number of battles to gain levels). Wakka: The only ability Wakka needs is Dark Attack. Rikku: Haste/Hastaga, Slow/Slowga. Her best ability is the use of Al-Bhed potions. ::::::::::Battle:::::::::: Boss: Evrae HP: 32,000 AP: Weakness: None (Although Dark Attack works well, all other forms of crippling Evrae wonít work, heís immune to all except Dark Attack) Bonuses to help you win the battle: Missile Salvosí, Luluís Elemental magic, Trigger commands, Haste/Hastaga, Slow/Slowga and El-Bhed potions Before the battle, buy a good number of Hi-Potions and Al-Bhed Potions from Rin at the bottom of the elevator. Start the fight with Tidus, Rikku and Auron. When the battle begins, get Tidus to cast Haste on Rikku, then Auron, then on himself. Use Auron to attack Evrae a maximum of three times with his melee attack (If you have Auronís Overdrive ready, use it now). After Auron has attacked two or three times, use Tidus or Rikku to move the ship away (Trigger command, only Tidus or Rikku can command Cid to move the ship away). Use Rikku to use one or two Al- Bhed potions on the party (how many you need, Iíd stay a bit under full health and save the potions if you want). Switch Auron for Wakka. If Wakka has his Overdrive, use it now. If he doesnít, keep casting Dark Attack until Evrae is blinded. Switch Wakka for Lulu as soon as Evrae is blinded. If Lulu has her overdrive, use it now. Keep using the highest elemental spells Lulu has (The damage is similar for each elemental type, e.g. Fira, Blizzara and the other two 2nd level elemental spells generally do around 700-800 damage per hit). Make sure Tidus or Rikku have cast Haste or Hastaga on Lulu. Keep repeating Luluís spells and while Evrae is not next to the ship, use all your missile barrages now (they generally do around 2,000 damage per salvo, but you only get three salvoís). Make sure Tidus has cast Haste on everyone in the party. Eventually, Evrae will move forward again. Keep using Trigger commands to move the ship away and repeatedly use Luluís elemental spells on Evrae at long range. Try not to let Evrae stay beside the ship for long. His melee attacks can often kill characters within a few hits if their not healed, and his most annoying attack Ė Poison Breath will often be used (it can only be used at close range, which is why moving the ship away continuously when possible, is best). Once Evrae uses Poison Breath, heíll often be able to hit a few times with his melee attack as well. This combination he used when I tried to defeat him in close range, defeated me more then 5 times in a row. If you have Slow/Slowga, use it on Evrae. Chances are heíll use Haste on himself, but while heís preoccupied with doing that, you can often squeeze in a couple more elemental spells to drain his HP. Having Haste or Hastaga on the party is a lifesaver, because it means your characters will move up generally twice as fast. This makes moving the ship away easier when trying to avoid Evraeís close attacks and Poison Breath. If Evrae does move next to the ship again and again, switch Tidus for Auron and rip into Evrae with his melee hits. I did this once I had taken down around 20,000HP of Evraeís health. Auron is by far the strongest melee character youíll have at this stage, so if Rikku can use Haste/Hastaga on Auron, use it, if not, then donít although it does help. In close quarters, keep using Rikku to use Al-Bhed potions and/or Antidotes if needed and Auron and Lulu to keep attacking Evrae. If you find that Evrae kills you round about now, then youíd be better off doing the whole battle in long-range mode. Keep repeating Auron and Luluís attacks in close range, or just Luluís spells in long range, and use Rikku as a healer. You should be able to beat Evrae for good by repeating this method. Note: At such an early stage in the game, Evrae is generally one of the hardest bosses to beat in the entire game. There are a few more difficult ones, but donít be discouraged if youíre not able to beat Evrae in less then 5 tries!
