Deal Damage With Arcane Ward + Fire

Arcane Ward

Laying down an Arcane Ward with Aerith will cause you to deal substantially higher damage with your Fire spells, as they will be doubled. There are two downsides to this: 1) You have to physically stand and the ward and 2) If you switch to Aerith, Abzu will likely target you.

Build Aerith's ATB And Then Swap

Abzu Hard

One strategy to avoid Abzu setting its gaze on Aerith is to have her build ATB and then immediately switch to Cloud or Tifa. Then, while making sure Aerith is standing on the Ward, have her cast fire spells via indirect commands. This is especially important to avoid being targeted by Pounce!

Barrier On Everyone

Abzu Hard

Even with perfect switch management, you will still inevitably take damage from Abzu. Since his damage is so high, we strongly recommend applying Barrier to all characters, especially Aerith!

Counterstance The Bash

Abzu Hard

Abzu often telegraphs his attacks with large animations, so you can use this opportunity to ready a Counterstance on Cloud. This will let you counterattack and build up his stagger bar!

Manuscript Reward

For defeating Abzu on hard mode in Chapter 10, you'll get Way of the Fist Vol. VII, which gives SP to Tifa.

Tips To Beat Abzu In Ch.14

Abzu Shoats Spawn Unlimitedly

shoat

Abzu Shoats keep on coming back after you've defeat them. Use them to charge your ATB gauge.

Attacking Abzu's Tail Causes Blackwater Blast

blackwater

You can dodge Blackwater Blast with the same technique you've used in Chapter 10. However, you have to find which of the 4 sewer will stream the black water.

Breaking Its Tail Weakens Abzu

Abzu stuns for a while after you've break its tail. Tail spin's reach gets shorten too.

Strike Its Horn With Fire

You can set Abzu on fire by striking its head with fire magic. Abzu will burn and stun for a while.

Summon Ifrit & Use Summon Ability

You can repeatedly use Ifrit's Summon Ability by charging ATB with Abzu Shoats.
