Accepted Answer

  1. The best thing you can do is slow the dragon, and keep everyone's HP at max the whole time. Shell didn't really help a lot for reducing damage to his breath attack, but protect will help whenever he physically attacks you.

    It would be best to have Cecil help out on healing instead of being a pure brawler,Since Tellah's Cure spells are a little lacking for people with High HP like Cecil and Yang.

  1. If you do not have the Key Item "Whisperweed," you need to visit Edward. He is in the infirmary in the castle at Troia.

  2. I'm writing this message without being at that part of the game myself. It might be more helpful to check the FAQs for strategies. I'm assuming you HAVE Whisperweed already, and that you re-equipped and recovered any damage to your party before jumping into the second version of the battle.

    If you have it, Protect and Shell would be a big help. Before that, you'd want to Slow the Dark Elf (yes, do it again when he's in dragon form) and use Haste on whoever you're using to cast these spells. The sooner you get them up, the better off you are. You might consider Haste on everyone else in the party once Protect and Shell are down.

    I don't know if all of these are an option for you, but at least some should be; you have Tellah, he's supposed to have nearly all the spells available to him. If that fails, do some grinding. The simplest problem might be a lack in stats and health. Good luck!

  3. You can also try berserking your physical attackers, other than Cecil, for some increased damage output, once you get past that initial turn. A triple-Focus'd Yang turned berserk almost kills him outright.

  4. You can use Shell for the first blow from the Dark Elf's Magic (or if you have enough Hi-Potions and get lucky, Reflect to bounce the attacks back). Have Tellah use Cura, Cid to attack and give Tellah Ethers, Cecil to attack and use Cure, and Yang on focused attacks. When at the dragon part, put Protect on everybody, and cast slow to buy yourself more time from the attacks. Use Cura/Cure and Esuna whenever you get hit by Dark Breath.

    That is assuming your party is at a level 26 average, and you already had the Whisperweed from Edward.
