Help! I Have gotten to the base of the Lifa Tree..

FFfanatic008 asks: Added Aug 9th 2004, ID #8573

Question for Final Fantasy IX

Help! I Have gotten to the base of the Lifa Tree (Not long after meeting Eiko) and cant defeat the boss that is at the bottom.

He looks like a tree and because if you use a fire attack on him he uses a flaming leaf counter attack, it makes zidanes dyne almost pointless please give me some helpful tips on how to beat him.

One word UNDEAD USE LIFE INSTANT KILL k that was more than one word but still just use a phinix down (I think I spelled that wrong) or cast life with Dagger/Garnet.

Hope I helped.

Whatever you do DON'T USE FIRE!!! he'll retaliate with twice as much power.

Have Eiko or Dagger use life on the tree. This will kill him instantly because he is an undead monster.

You'll be there for hours if you try to fight him straight up.

Trust me, for a monster like this you'll be glad that you used life.

Yes...yes..you could deffinatly use life, however...you'll have to live with the fact that you took the cheap way out...I suggest you level a few more times since it's easy.

Here's what I did. Vivi used fire magic, Garnet summoned the eidalon(sp?) Pheonix, it revives the dead and damages the tree, and the two spell attacks get doubled due to Fire being his weakness.

Don't be intimidated by his strong attacks, he only does them when his HP is low.

You probably already took the advice of others and used life but know this, you'll face bosses that are A LOT harder, and if you can't handle a tree...peh..give up..
