The Wyerd is an enemy from Final Fantasy IX found in the Ice Cavern. Every time it uses its physical attack, it will utter either of these two phrases: "The wind lays out my path." or "Get out of my way". They refer to the icy winds blowing through the Ice Cavern; Wyerds are only encountered by touching these winds, so they can be avoided with careful timing.

Stats[]

Battle[]

HP Switching.

Wyerd can be a bit tricky to fight, as its HP Switching attack exchanges its HP with the target's, typically restoring their own HP and placing the target in critical health. Wyerd often uses Blizzard on weakened party members, possibly killing them. Even though it has few HP, its maximum is high, able to reach up to 9999 HP if it switched HP with a party member with 9999 HP (not really possible in a normal playthrough as the Ice Cavern becomes inaccessible later).

Strategy[]

Wyerds are weak to Fire, and so Vivi's Blk Mag is best for defeating them. Holding R1 during the targeting, the player can group-cast the Fire spell against groups of Wyerds.
