Enlightened soul, head my plea and we shall bring light to your dark path.

Know that a vetala holds my power thrall within this spire. Slay it and I shall once more be free.

Battle[edit | edit source]

Vetala is highly resistant to all forms of attacks when not Staggered, conjuring a holographic sphere that absorbs elements and whittles damage dealt to nearly nothing. The Vetala attacks with powerful magic attacks of many elements, so staggering it as quickly as possible is imperative. Its appearance is the result of two halves of a Ghast Cie'th merged together.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Using Ravagers is needed in order to stagger the Vetala. A Paradigm with three Ravagers works the best for this, while occasionally using a Commando or a Saboteur to slow the chain gauge down. When it is staggered, the player can use a Saboteur to cast Deprotect. When it is staggered, it becomes vulnerable to physical attacks.
