Is it bad that I'm struggling against this guy in EO IV?

I can handle his thunder attacks, they barely deal damage, but that weird fucking insta-kill of his fucks me up, I don't even know if it's random or if there's a condition, what the hell.

This is first EO game where I'm bothering with post-game content. I don't have much experience with superbosses in JRPGs, but I wanted to give this one a go since I really like the game.

The insta-kill mechanic happens because you have to many buffs on your party. I don't remember exactly how many it couldn't be over, might be 8 or so, so doing 2 party-wide buffs would cause him to use it.

He uses his insta-kill when you have too many buffs on your party

>yfw these are the easiest dragons in the series
but anyway, have less than 7 buffs across your entire party so you don't get killed

Well, that explains a lot. I had Volt Rune and Element Guard, but felt it was unecessary and used Rampart + Party Shield for my fortress.

Now that I think about it, only the Fortress and the Runemaster kept dying because of Rampart and Runic Gleam.

Will he fuck me up if I debuff him instead?

>>274702885
Yeah, I heard that too. My party was all over the place. Did some mad resting after the fight.
>>
>>274703138
Nah, debuffs don't count against you
>>
>>274702020
He is the most dangerous dragon in IV
as many others already said, don't overbuff you so much and good luck
>>
>>274703138

There's no reason to use anything other than Volt Rune for defense, along with some volt resist food they damage from his attacks is negligible. Just because buffing any of your damage dealers, for the most part it isn't a damage race since you can just comfortably heal through his physical attacks.

Then I guess Wiglaf's only purpose now is to be the Quickstep bot then. Alright, thanks for the help.

Let's make this a general EO thread while we're at it.

EOV is for Wii U, calling it now.

Not him, but the game has been out in Japan for a week. The ending and every boss fight are on YouTube if you want to look them up.
