Atomos can be inflicted with Disable and Sleep. It can use Purify to heal its statuses when it's not incapacitated and White Wind to immunize itself against statuses, and the effect lasts for around two minutes.


The player can try to take out the Vultures first without alerting Atomos. Two tanks and a caster-ranged-fighter mix is a good setup. One should cast Protect on both tanks, then Haste, then Bravery, and finally Berserk.

The Nihopalaoa + Remedy trick can be used to inflict both Disable and Sleep on Atomos.

Atomos has HP Attack when the battle starts and it ignores evasion, making equipping shields useless, although inflicting it with Blind will still cause its attacks to occasionally miss. If not afflicted with Disease the mark uses Restore once it loses half HP, but when it goes critical, it stops using it. When it is in low health it only attacks non-stop.
