Now that we are all caught up with some vital information about the Wyerd, it is time to review the method you should use to tackle it in battle.

Therefore, it’s best to revise your strategy if you keep dying against the Wyerd. The first thing you should do is familiarize yourself with its attacks in Crisis Core Reunion.

Here’s a strategy to take down Wyerd:

Moves to Watch Out For:

  4. Horn Charge: Wyerd thrusts its horns forward multiple times.

Battle Strategy:

  1. Level Up: Make sure Zack is at least level 25-30 before facing Wyerd.
  2. HP Up Materias: Equip HP Up Materias and have healing items on hand since Wyerd’s attacks are powerful.
  3. Elemental Materias: Avoid using elemental Materias (e.g., Fire, Ice, Thunder) as Wyerd is highly resistant to them.
  4. Darkness Materia: Equip the “Darkness” Command Materia to enable special attacks that expend HP to deal non-magic/physical damage.
