1. Choose Who To Talk To First
At the beginning of chapter 10, you'll have the choice to talk to Tifa or Aerith first. Whoever you choose will lead to changes in a future event!Check Out Who To Talk To First In Sewer Guide!
2. Abzu Is Weak to Fire
Abzu is a tanky enemy with tons of high damage attacks. However, you will be able to whittle its health down by using fire attacks on its horn. Make sure to equip strong fire attacks like Firaga before starting the battle!⬇Read the detailed boss tips below!
2, 7. Operate Levers to Open Sluice Gates
You will not be able to pass through bodies of water. If you need to get across, look for levers near the Sluice Gates. Using these levers will allow you to drain the water from the sewer, letting you pass.
5. Getting the Skeleton Key
The Skeleton Key will be underwater. Operate the Sluice Gate to lower the water levels in the room. Once the water is gone, you can go down and retrieve the Skeleton Key.
10. Operating the Wastewater Pump
Keep mashing O to increase the red area's size on the pump. This will give you much more leeway when trying to get the pin to land in the red area.

How To Beat Abzu
- Phoenix Down
Rare Items Dropped:
- Turbo Ether
Focus On Its Horns
Abzu may be tanky, but it is susceptible to fire damage. Use strong attacks like Firaga on its horns to set it on fire. Once its on fire, it will stop attacking and flail around. Use this to get a few good hits in!
Summon Ifrit to Deal Damage
Another great way to effectively damage Abzu is to summon Ifrit. Most of its attacks are fire attacks, meaning that it is highly effective against Abzu.Check Out Ifrit Summon Materia
Watch Out When Abzu Jumps on the Rails
Be on your guard when Abzu jumps up onto the rails. It will either pounce at you or use the Backwater Blast attack. These are heavy damage attacks so be ready to dodge out of the way, or heal your teammates that get caught in the attack!
