Event Tips[edit | edit source]

  • At higher difficulties, it's wise to use a Tent before facing the boss.
  • Equipping Charm Bangle or Diabolos helps in reducing encounter rates. Alternatively, equipping Germinas Boots or bringing Smoke Screens allows you to Escape battles.
  • Enemies often strike first at higher difficulties. So be alert.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • Wilhelm has innate 10% physical resistance, this cannot be dispelled. Despite the low number, his DEF is much higher than his SPR. If you can bring heavy magic damage it will be helpful against him. If you are using physical damage, Man-Eater, from Diabolos or materia, is effective.
  • Wilhelm inflicts heavy damage. Keep him dispelled and break his ATK. DEF buffs such as Minfilia's Guard Order, Refia's Embolden, or any green mage's Protectga is also recommended.
  • You can dispel his buff using Dispel, Fingersnap, or Twist of Fate. With Xon, you can steal his buff, including the massive buff on 20% HP threshold. Dispelling Wilhelm will also remove his ATK break so you should reapply ATK break.
  • Once he's reduced below 50% HP threshold, Wilhelm will be able to use AoE attack and stop.
  • Inflicting blind on Wilhelm forces him to use Remedy and end turn without attacking. He'll become immune to blind after the first successful infliction.
  • The Special Forces Axeman and Special Forces Swordsman do fairly heavy damage. Kill them first. They are not resistant to physical damage, but you should still Dispel their buffs.
  • You can use Dualcast or Presence of Mind to cast Dispel on multiple targets by changing your target right after you cast it on the first one.
  • Setzer's Double Dice ability ignores all defense. Equipping him with Man-Eater gives additional damage. Second Knife is a recommended equip for Setzer while using this strategy.
  • Wilhelm uses only physical attacks so a unit with 100% evade can avoid all damage unless they are stopped.
