Spawn Conditions Companions/Summons
  • N/A
Special Abilities Passive Traits
  • Tyrant Tusk: Conal AoE Darkness damage Resist Vs. Dark and Bio Bio. Inflicts instant KO to targets that would have been left under 50% of their maximum HP after calculating damage from this attack.
    • Keep party members fully healed whenever possible to minimize the chances of Tyrant Tusk inflicting an instant KO. Equipment/gear with the "Resist Death" attribute is not shown to have any effect on this attack.
  • Awful Eye: Conal AoE gaze Petrify Petrification. Avoidable through turning. Characters that are afflicted with petrification will have their enmity reset.
  • Heavy Bellow: Radial AoE Stun, instead of conal stun like most Bugards. Unlike with Minax Bugard, this move does not have any Hate Reset effect.
  • Tusk: Single target physical damage and knockback.
  • N/A
Physical Qualities Magical Qualities
  • High rate of double attack and decent accuracy.
Further Notes
  • Tyrant Tusk damage appears to gradually increase as Sobek's HP declines. May deal upward to approximately 1k damage or more to unprotected targets.
  • Be especially wary of a potential Blizzaga IV -> Tyrant Tusk combo if you have no means of stun.
  • Shell and HP-boosting food/gear/atmas (Atma of the Sanguine Scythe) are highly recommended for melee. 2800 HP or higher is advisable to avoid K.O. (assuming adequate healing support).
  • Stoneskin and similar effects such as Magic Barrier can reduce the damage dealt by Tyrant Tusk. However, Magic Barrier is more effective due to not being removed by Sobek's melee attacks.
