Fighting Bahamut Fury
When facing Bahamut, I’ve learned that there are specific precautions to take both before and during the fight. These precautions can make the battle against the boss much smoother and more manageable.
Loading The Health Bar
Before the fight, it is wise to equip your player with Barrier or Regen Materia.
Barrier reduces damage from Bahamut Fury by half, while Regen Materia gradually restores your health.
Maximize your health bar by boosting VIT and SPR stats with specific accessories like Aegis Armlets, Shinra Betas, and Tarot Cards.
During the battle, cast and maintain Wall Materia to reduce incoming damage. Use Ethers to replenish health if it drops below a safe level.
Focus on increasing your HP, as Bahamut Fury has high health. Building a strong HP pool is crucial for a better chance at defeating the boss. Healing Wave will also prove valuable for health regeneration during the fight.
By following these strategies, you’ll improve your chances of successfully taking on Bahamut Fury in the game.
Fight From A Safe Distance
In my experience, regardless of my fighting style, I’ve found that my best chance of defeating Bahamut Fury is by relying on physical attacks. To do this effectively, I make sure to maintain a specific distance from the boss. This distance allows me to land punches and deal damage while also giving me ample room to swiftly dodge his attacks. Bahamut Fury’s moves are often predictable, so timing my jumps to evade them is crucial.
About jumping, the Jump Materia is a lifeline in the battle. While attacking the boss, careful use of the jump will allow you to continue your fighting combo for longer. Moreover, you will also be able to dodge many of the attacks thrown toward you.
Watch Out For Exaflare
You should keep attacking Bahamut and gather any damage you can take. An eye must be set for when the boss uses Exaflare. As soon as Exaflare is selected, you should throw your best attacks that cause the most damage to cancel the Exaflare.
Since Exaflare cannot be blocked, throwing all your attacks is a good option to cancel the powerful spell. However, if you have taken the blow from Exaflare, you can always use the Healing Wave to retrieve your lost health.
Use Healing Wave Wisely
Aerith emotions increased
Before you encounter the boss, the player receives a call from Aerith. The call motivates the hero and heightens the motions in the DMW (Digital Mind Wave). If you are unaware of DMW, it is a spinning left located at the top left corner of the game.
The game increases Aerith’s chances of appearing in the DMW while the fight with the boss is happening. Aerith has a limit break ability that can be granted using the DMW, which is the Healing Wave.
To make the most of Healing Wave, I use it strategically. I recommend activating it just before Bahamut launches Exaflare to nullify the devastating effects of the attack. Alternatively, it can be used right after Exaflare to quickly recover from the intense damage.
Bahamut Fury Strength
The best way to see a problem before countering it is to look at its numbers. Before you devise a well-planned strategy, you must know what you are against. Bahamut fury is hard to crack, so you must prepare for it thoroughly.
Two things should be looked at in Bahamut. First, Fury’s statistics, and second the attacks it can potentially deliver. After preparing for these two things, the boss can be defeated with relative ease.
To prepare, you need Fury’s numbers. Here are all the statistics of the mighty boss you should keep in mind before having a face-off with him.
The statistics of Fury in Final Fantasy Crisis Core Reunion are as follows:
Bahamut Fury has a Level of 20.
The boss has a health of 18000. The health increases to 46000 if you play a Hard difficulty game.
ATK – 25
MAG – 111
VIT – 36
Gil – 410
Apart from these numbers, another statistical factor is the boss’s resistance. The damage dished out to Fury from elements such as Fire, Ice, and Lightning is half taken by it. Also, it is immune to Gravita. Hence, you are advised not to use this element while facing him.
Knowing Bahamut’s attacks is vital for preparation and effective response:
Wind Slice: Bahamut sweeps his arm, creating a wide shockwave, knocking Zack back. It covers a large area.
Cluster Sphere: Bahamut charges an orb of light, splitting it into three balls directed at you.
Exaflare: The deadliest attack, Bahamut jumps, unleashing an unblockable beam on Zack.
Wing Missiles: Bahamut launches missiles from his wings, posing a significant threat.
These attacks can be called beforehand, so you exhibit a block from them. But the most severe attack is the Exaflare. Its capacity to not be blocked anyway makes it the most terrific attack. Apart from Exaflare, wing missiles also are very damaging for the player.
While we have mentioned some of the best Materia, you would want to use to take out Bahamut, others can be used in other situations. Here, you can find the other great Materia that helps you escape trouble.
The boss fight with Bahamut Fury is one of the most challenging fights of the Crisis Core Reunion. The other boss fights can be countered with relative ease as the bosses are not made as invincible as Bahamut Fury.
However, the moves mentioned in this article will serve you very well in taking the boss down if applied correctly.
