Phoenix Tower

Battle[edit | edit source]

Apart from its exceptionally high HP, the Soul Cannon is not much of a problem. It is slow, and takes time to charge up its attacks. The Launchers flanking it will attack, though, and can halve a character's HP and inflict the Old status. Its other attack, Wave Cannon, can do serious damage if not careful, but one can easily predict when it is going to use it. Wave Cannon deals exactly half max HP in damage and inflicts Sap on each character. In the IOS/Steam version, Wave Cannon can miss if the target has enough magic evasion.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Blue Magic spell Level 5 Death instantly kills the Launchers. Black Mages should cast Thundara, Mystic Knights should use Thundara Sword, and Summoners use Ramuh. The version in the Phoenix Tower can be killed by using Dark Shock and Level 5 death in a combo.
