Hey People

Oh dear........I really need to know how to win against this buy. Of course it would be easy if i could use magicks but i can't. I need a strategy and a few tips from you people on how i should approach this battle.

I recommend armor or accessories with buffs (since you can't rely on magics). Pheasant Netsukes can revive an ally 100% of health with a phoenix down, too.

I actually waited a long time to take him on because I rely so heavily on magic. Make sure you're stocked full of healing items and gambits.

Yeah, just hit it a lot and use items to heal. I'd suggest waiting until you get further in the story to do it so that you have more levels on it. If you just now completed the Stillshrine part of the story I'd reccommend waiting.

If you didn't screw yourself out of it, get the Zodiac Spear.

Wait until you're at a fairly decent level (I was at 50, but it depends on how you play) and set your gambits to use items, not spells. Pheasant Netsukes are useful to increase the potency of your items. Before you enter the fight, make sure you have plenty of the required items, and cast your best buffs on the team, seeing as you won't be using your MP during the fight.

Once in there, focus on hitting Zeromus - that is, ignore his minions, as they tend to respawn fairly quickly. A damage dealer with Berserk (use Bacchus Wine) and the Zodiac Spear can cause serious damage. If your levels are high enough he should go down pretty quickly, but, if you have trouble finishing him off, bring in your reserves and pull off a decent Quickening chain.

Make sure you have a lot of x-potions, that's what I used to heal myself. Don't bother with any of the minions, just go for Zeromus. Before you open that door cast any buffs you can on yourself and rely on accessories for buffs afterwards (which was mentioned earlier).

Well you might want to get past at least level me I learned from exp. T_T... then buff yourself up before the fight then go in and kick his butt try not to focus on the skeletons so much then go after Zeromus with everything ya got you should wear him down after a while

if you find his minions really aniying equip balthier with the folhamut(not sure i spelled that right) and the mud shot, heel take them down in one shot. equip a nimpadora(dont think i spelt that right either) and throw a remedy at him.That shold help. follow the advice above and you should be fine.
