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.

Fire Cavern

1st Time Completion Reward
1x Mythril, 1x Stamina Shard
Completion Reward
10,000 Gil
Mastery Reward
3x Greater White Orb, 1x Stamina Shard
Boss Condition
Exploit Ifrit's weakness to ice attacks.

Support Characters should boost attackers and/or black mages. For offense use lightning abilities like (Blizzard Strike (Other), Blizzara/Blizzaga (Black Magic). You don't need to get a Champion rating on this boss, simply get a Champion rating on the previous stages to earn you a Master score.

SeeD Field Exam

1st Time Completion Reward
1x Mythril, 1x Stamina Shard
Completion Reward
10,000 Gil
Mastery Reward
3x Greater Black Orb, 1x Stamina Shard
Boss Condition
Defeat Biggs and Wedge without being KO'd.
Defeat Elvoret without being KO'd.

When up against Biggs and Wedge, just defend until Biggs appears then make sure your strongest attacker has Retaliate and have the rest of your party attack that character. Wedge will counter a counterattack. The same trick works on Biggs too. Healers must be ready to heal when necessary.

Dollet

1st Time Completion Reward
1x Mythril, 1x Stamina Shard
Completion Reward
10,000 Gil
Mastery Reward
3x Greater Power Orb, 1x Stamina Shard
Boss Condition
Exploit X-ATM092's wkness to lightning atks

Support Characters should boost attackers and/or black mages. For offense use lightning abilities like (Thunder Strike (Other), Thundara/Thundaga (Black Magic). These abilities should be at least level 2 or have multiple characters with these abilities equipped. Having Power, Mental and Armor Breaks at level 2 is also a good idea as well so that you can use them on the boss once per round. Be sure to have healing abilities ready when needed.

Balamb Garden 1

1st Time Completion Reward
1x Mythril, 1x Stamina Shard
Completion Reward
10,000 Gil
Mastery Reward
1x Large Adamantite, 1x Stamina Shard
Boss Condition
Exploit Granaldo's weakness to wind attacks.

The boss condition says to use wind attacks on the Granaldo but unfortunately, there is not a lot of abilities right now that inflict wind damage, aside from Wind Slash and Aero Strike. Use these on him to get the associated medals then just stick to your usual battle pattern once you run out of wind abilities. You should always have healers on hand to stay healthy. Kill off the Raldo minions with two shots of Quake if you have it.

Balamb Garden 2

1st Time Completion Reward
1x Mythril, 1x Stamina Shard
Completion Reward
10,000 Gil
Mastery Reward
1x Large Scarletite, 1x Stamina Shard
Boss Condition
Exploit Diabolos's weakness to wind attacks.

The boss condition says to use wind attacks on Diabolos but unfortunately, there is not a lot of abilities right now that inflict wind damage, aside from Wind Slash and Aero Strike. Use these on him to get the associated medals then just stick to your usual battle pattern once you run out of wind abilities. Blind on him with Dark Buster, throw Armor Break and use your best attacks.

Presidential Train

1st Time Completion Reward
1x Mythril, 1x Stamina Shard
Completion Reward
10,000 Gil
Mastery Reward
3x Greater White Orb, 1x Stamina Shard
Boss Condition
Exploit Gerogero's wkness to fire, wind, holy.

Simple enough battle here with black mages throwing Firaga and/or Quake. Fire/Fira Strike for attackers and white mages toss healing spells to exploit Gerogero's weakness to holy. Raise does not work so Gerogero isn't undead.

Unknown King's Tomb

1st Time Completion Reward
1x Mythril, 1x Stamina Shard
Completion Reward
10,000 Gil
Mastery Reward
1x Major Black Orb, 1x Stamina Shard
Boss Condition
Exploit Sekhret's weakness to poison attacks.
Exploit Minotaur's weakness to wind attacks.

There are some reports of glitches here where medals are not being given despite exploiting the weaknesses of both enemies, so your best bet is to cast Biora and Aero/Wind Slash/Aero Strike on both Minotaur and Sekhret to be sure. They have a lot of HP so Mental and Armor Break is a great idea.
