There's three of them - one easy battle and two super-tough battles.
General hint: Although it will prompt you to save the game, do not save
the game over your current game in progress! Doing so may result in you
having to play the entire game over again!
This battle is relatively easy, and shouldn't be a problem for your
characters. Just take out Malak and those three archers, and the rest
shouldn't be a problem.
Wiegraf can kill Ramza in two turns, while Ramza can barely scratch
Wiegraf. This battle requires you to know what you're doing, which is
the biggest problem with this battle...
The following works, however: Give Ramza the Auto Potion, Accumulate
(use with the "Guts" command), and Move-HP Up abilities. Throw away all
of your Potions and Hi-Potions, and only use X-Potions. Support ability
is up to you, but it's a good idea to use Two Blades. Make sure Ramza
has a high Brave level - if necessary, use mediator skills to raise
Ramza's bravery. (The braver the character, the more likely the reaction
ability will work.)
Now, keep Accumulating during this battle, and running away from
Wiegraf. If Wiegraf hits Ramza with a Holy Sword attack, Ramza should
counter with an X-Potion. If not, or if Ramza's attack power reaches
25-35, charge Wiegraf and try to take him out. It should only take a
When Wiegraf uses the Brave Stone, immediately try to take out the
demon. He should also go down in a single turn.
This battle is particularly infuriating, since Celia and Lede can kill
any character in a single hit. Since their goal is to take the stone
from Rafa, it is critical that you keep Rafa's HP high, or else this
will be a very short battle.
About the best way to win this battle is to use your warriors to take
out Elmdor quickly and efficiently. Since your characters on the ground
will be targeted by Celia and Lede, it's probably best to use lancers.
Keep jumping on Elmdor to weaken him, and end the battle.
