Final Fantasy IV


Last Updated:
This guide is meant to assist in defeating bosses in Elite Dungeons. Elite Dungeons are unlocked by mastering the Classic version of each of the available levels. As usual the difficulty of these dungeons are typically relative -- for a well-leveled party with strong gear these will mostly be a cakewalk. Otherwise, expect a tougher time for an average battle party.

Mist Cave

1x Mythril, 1x Stamina Shard
Completion Reward
3,500 Gil
Mastery Reward
3x Greater White Orb, 1x Stamina Shard
Boss Condition
Exploit Mist Dragon's wkness to dark atks.
Defeat Mist Dragon w/ any atks countered

If you tried this during the game's early stages, there supply of dark abilities will be very limited. So just go for the Other condition instead, which is enough for a Master score. Just be careful while you damage him as the dragon goes behind the mist when you hurt him enough. Defend during this time and then go back on the offensive again once the mist disappears.

Def. Octomammoth w/o water atks absorbed.

If you tried this during the game's early stages, the supply of dark abilities will be very limited. So just go for the Other condition instead, which is enough for a Master score. Support Characters should boost attackers and/or black mages. For offense use lightning abilities like (Thunder Strike (Other), Thundara/Thundaga (Black Magic). You don't need to get a Champion rating on this boss, simply obtain a Champion rating on all of the previous stages and that should be enough to earn you a Master score.
