    Tumedus: no, can't leave the spiral staircase. (i tried!)

    I finally got thru it yesterday .... i swear i started jumping up and down!
    You just have to keep whaling on her with the sword when she's down ... I was using stoneskin when I could as well.

  1. There really isn't too much more to it than what you have done. Getting her out of the air is really the hard part. After that just avoid being hit and slash at her when you get a chance. On apocalyptic I only attacked her when she did the charge thing and I knocked her over. It took quite awhile.

    Also, not really sure if you can leave the dungeon from where you are at, but if you are reasonably close to a level up on your sword, it makes a huge difference.

  2. so you have to use the sword to kill her?

    every time i got near the b-tch she kicked the beejeezus out of me, so i tried a different tactic, running round the outside circle, constantly jumping to avoid her attacks and when she lunged pressed circle, then when she was down, charded the glaive and sent that in. I lost count at thirty how many times i did this then she just got a smack on me and killed me. I know that feeling about wanting to throw the disc out the window....

  3. This was by far the hardest boss fight in the game. The other chosen and the destroyer were alot easier than tiamat.

  4. I managed to kill her on apocalyptic on my first play through after about 15 times. It's the controls that are your worst enemy in this battle. Just take it easy and practice and with a bit of perseverance you can own her quite easily.
    Heres a little tip to get her out of the air: When you pick up the bombs and throw them at her, you can aim in such a way that you can throw the bomb through the flames and they will explode without hacing to target both the flame and then the bomb. After the first bomb explodes and she crashes to the ground give her about 9 good hits and then get out of her way as she will take a cheap swipe at you and you don't want to be losing any life this early. Next hold down L2 to hold the camera on her so you can see exactly where she'll strike, then when she dives just dart out of the way at the last second. Repeat this 3 times and then quickly pick up a bomb and throw it at her, If your lucky you would have been able to line this one up with a flame as well, if not then target the flame and then the bomb, just hold down the lock button and pass it over so you don't have to literally aim, as this wastes a lot of time and she won't stay like this for long. After she has crashed down do the same as before and hit her 9 - 10 times before really getting out of the way and switch to the long camera with L2. When you see her rise in the air, ready to crash down double jump and float as this will save you from this devastating attack. From this moment on just keep getting in hits whenever possible, without getting too greedy and impatient. She will alternate her crushing flame attack with fireballs from her mouth. Both are easy to dodge if you just keep it together as she becomes quite predictable. She will also charge at you but just remember to press circle when she hits you and you'll be fine. After you have hit her enough she will be stunned. Unleash powerful attacks whilst you can, without being greedy as her attacks are powerful and one swipe of her tail takes half your life. Just keep on with this formula and within about 4 minutes she'll be begging for mercy. Remember to also equip your sword with extra damage ability as this will help loads. She really is a piece of cake, just take your time and relax and you'l see that the hardest boss in the game can and will fall.

  5. Guys. if you can aim a bomb straight into her mouth, it will wedge there and she wont be able to blast anymore fireballs at you. By accident, i managed to land one in her mouth and she couldnt fire her fireballs. I actually fooled around quite a bit after that just to see her try in vain. :D Though i dont understand why it doesnt burst inside her mouth since it is fire she is spitting.
