I'm getting sick of these stupid boss battles.

This guy casts "Reversal" so that damage becomes healing and healing becomes damage. This means I can't heal my party with "cure". Then he proceeds to cast some spell I don't remember the name of that deals 1000+ damage to each party member over and over.

How on earth do you kill this guy?

If you're lucky, you'll have found an Elixir along the way and not used it.

Use it on him after he uses Reversal, and it's pretty much over.

Should you need to do a little more damage, you can use your healing spells and items on him. Throwing Potions, Cure spells and more at him should make quick work of an otherwise difficult boss. If you need to heal while under the effects of Reversal, Rydia can heal your party with Black Magic. It goes both ways after all. Remember to have Yang use Focus to charge up his attacks while Reversal is active, and everyone should be able to stay occupied.

An alternate strategy is to have Rydia summon Whyt at the start of the fight, before the first use of Reversal Gas. It'll throw Rydia's status out of sync with the rest of the party; this effectively renders her completely immune to Lugae's attacks, at which point, you can just take your time with it.

    I don't believe there is one... You can wait it out, or better yet, use black magic to heal yourself and stay ahead of it. Once you understand the Reversal gimmick, it really is quite manageable. Feb 14, 2014 at 1:00
