You need to spend the first few turns setting up Protect, Blink (and its variants or whatever), the elemental defense spells to half the damage of some of Chaos' spells, as well as Haste, Temper, etc.

Also, Chaos has like, 250k hp. It is somewhat of an endurance battle if you get it right.
Your characters don't all need to be 999HP, but ~750 and up is good enough. I think it is the physical fighters that most need to have high hp so that you are not reviving them constantly.

If I recall correctly...

Wait a minute you don't have temper?! O_O You are toast. That's like a basic spell level 2 I believe and one of the most important ones too. If your original post is accurate too, then you don't have haste either. Well don't expect anything less than being royally raped.

If you can, better go pick them up, otherwise I really don't have any suggestions for you other than using Invisira and Protera with your White Wizard non-stop and hope you win after 2 hours.

Haste doubles the hits that your characters do (which should be around 7-8, and with haste they should be 14-16) and temper increases their damage output. With these two spells you can win pretty much any fight. Actually the only ones that gave me trouble are Omega and Shinryu in Lifespring Grotto.

You really don't have haste OR temper?! Man, I still can't believe it.

Against all bosses, need to have the best protection and buffing spells, as well as armor and weapons you can afford (which is a given). For me, when I fought the final boss, I fought defensively by keeping my HP above 50% (via healing items etc, used magic for buffs) and keeping protective spells up.

Black Magic. Very basic. Actually you're in luck it's probably in Pravoka or Elfheim, both of which are pretty close to the Chaos Shrine. That is of course assuming you still can get out. Haste is also Black Magic if you're wondering :)

Make sure you have plenty of ethers and maybe a few elixirs. The ethers will allow you to outlast Chaos, not in terms of MP, but in that you are able to be constantly healing until well past his death, lol. Keep your MP up and HP no less that 500-600 (because one of his spells does around 400-600 damage even with defensive spells all freshly cast).


... Actually the only ones that gave me trouble are Omega and Shinryu in Lifespring Grotto.

I beat Shinryu, barely, but Omega has decimated my team eight times, lol, and I still can't beat it. I haven't given it another go yet.

I easily beat Shinryu, Chaos, Death Machine/Warmech, etc. in Dawn of Souls. Omega was a little hard, but I don't think I lost, and if I did, I beat him the second time round. Chaos was a pathetic joke. I'm not sure, but it could be that the only boss I lost to after at least Vampire (It's been a long time since I played, so I'm not sure what the outcome of our battle was) was Scarmiglione on my first battle with him, part two. (I lost because I used up all my MP defeating him, and wasn't prepared to face a second form. I should've played FFIV first, perhaps?)

How did I cream the game so easily? Especially considering I'd never played a Final Fantasy game before?

This wasn't because Master was doing GODLY damage for me. This wasn't because both Red Wizard and Ninja knew Temper and Haste, and White Wizard knew Curaja and Invisira. This was because...

I was OBSCENELY over-leveled. OBSCENELY. I don't know what level you're supposed to be on when you're about to face Tiamat, but I don't think it was supposed to be 60-75. If it was, then how come no-one else I know can beat Death Machine in three turns with no characters dead despite a Nuke or two? I didn't even have to heal up or save before fighting Tiamat (Which, on reflection, was stupid of me, seeing how rare it is to find Death Machine in the first place - what if some sort of fluke happened or I accidentally turned off my game while fighting Tiamat? I'd have had to spend another two hours finding Death Machine, and that would have sucked!). As for Chaos, he went down like a bunch of popped balloons...(By that time, I was level 99 with max HP, so...yeah.) I was disappointed with DoS after hearing that Final Fantasy I was super-hard and required an amazing amount of level-grinding...I guess whoever said that must've been playing the NES version.

So, uh...I guess the moral of the story is, if you want to be obscenely over-leveled in FFI DoS, try and complete your Bestiary for an area as soon as you enter said area, even if the enemy is really really rare and you spend the next few days searching for it, leveling yourself up in the process because you can't be bothered to run away from all the other enemies. I don't think I even ever level-grinded in the game after the Cornelia Bridge/Prologue scene (I leveled up to 13 to face Garland because I thought he'd be hard - boy was I wrong! Although the fact that I cast Sleep on him at the beginning of the battle with my Red Mage might be why), just Bestiary-searched.

Uh, I don't remember what the original purpose of this post was (To recommend that you level-grind to 99 or something? Who knows?), but, yeah. Temper + Haste = Victory music
