How To Beat Shiva

Stagger Her With Fire Magic

Fire Spells

Shiva is very vulnerable to Fire magic, meaning you'll want to have it on at least one character, ideally two. Use Fire to build up her stagger bar and get her down as fast as possible.

Recommended Materia

MateriaReason
FireShiva is weak to fire
IfritMassively powerful summon that deals fire damage.

Avoid Stepping On Her Ice Tracks

Ice Tracks

Shiva will periodically skate around the room and leave tracks of spiky ice behind in her footsteps. Walking onto these will deal damage to you, so try to avoid doing so. Switch to Barret or use ranged attacks until she stops her figure skating routine.

Heal Up Before Diamond Dust

Diamond Dust

Likely towards the end of the fight, Shiva will deal massive damage to your entire party which can't be avoided. Before this, make sure you keep your party's health around at least 2000 to avoid getting wiped out!

Immune To Magic While Familiars Are Up

Familiars

While Frost Familiar orbs surround Shiva, she is immune to magic attacks, including Fire! Don't waste your MP when you see these orbs around her.

Shiva Abilities And Counters

Icicle Impact

Icicle Impact

Icicle Impact is an ability that will spawn massive icicles that jut out from the area around her. When you see this being cast, move your melee characters away.

Frost Familiars

Frost Familiars

Shiva summons several snowflake-orbs around herself which will eventually slam into one target and deal a fair amount of damage. Each orb hit did about 50 damage, and there were about 14-16 hits in total.

Blizzaga

Blizzaga

Blizzaga summons a large icicle at Shiva's location which hits any characters that might be nearby, dealing damage and knocking you back. This did about 1100 damage.

Whiteout

Whiteout

Creates a wave of ice in a narrow straight line in front of her, dealing damage to all hit by it (and possibly putting targets hit to sleep.)

Diamond Dust

Diamond Dust

Shiva's ultimate ability, she begins to fly around the room, encircling your party and encasing them in a prison of ice, which then erupts. This deals about 1700-1800 damage to each party member and seems to be unavoidable.
