About the Tower

While climbing the Tower, you will only be able to use Magic and Items in battle.

The following chart summarizes the strategies that you should use against the monsters in the tower. You can have Mog equip the Moogle Charm to avoid all of these monsters.

Monster NameStrategy
L.10 MagicUse Fire-elemental spells.
L.20 MagicIt has Reflect, so cast Reflect on your party and bounce spells off of yourselves to make them hit the enemy. It has no elemental weaknesses, and it absorbs Poison. It can be killed with X-Zone/Banish.
L.30 MagicUse Poison-elemental spells.
L.40 MagicUse Lightning-elemental spells.
L.50 MagicUse Fire-elemental and Holy/Pearl-elemental spells.
L.60 MagicUse Fire-elemental spells.
L.70 MagicIt has Reflect, so cast Reflect on your party and bounce spells off of yourselves to make them hit the enemy. Use Ice and Water-elemental spells.
L.80 MagicUse Poison-elemental spells.
L.90 MagicIt has Reflect, so cast Reflect on your party and bounce spells off of yourselves to make them hit the enemy. It has no elemental weaknesses, and it is immune to Pearl/Holy, Earth, and Water.
Magic UrnIt absorbs all elements, so you must use non-elemental spells if you want to kill it. It never actually harms you. Instead, it heals you and runs away soon after. They are a good source of MP; just use Osmose on them.

Climbing the Tower

The tower itself is straightforward. Just keep going up. Be aware that there are no save points in the tower.

As you go up, you will encounter doors on the way that contain chests.

In the first room with a chest, check the wall to the right of the chest and you will flip a hidden switch. Then go outside and go one floor down to the new door that appeared. Inside, there is a chest that contains the Air Anchor tool for Edgar. This tool, when used on an enemy, causes the enemy to die after it makes its next move. Air Anchor does not work on enemies who are immune to Doom/Death.

In one of the treasure chest rooms, you will find the Holy Dragon.

Holy Dragon

Equip everyone with Wall Rings/Reflect Rings. Since the Holy Dragon only uses magic, the Rflect/Reflect status will make you invincible in this battle.

Magimaster/MagiMstr/Magic Master

At the top of the tower, you must fight Magimaster/MagiMstr/Magic Master. If everyone is equipped with Wall Rings/Reflect Rings, Magimaster/MagiMstr/Magic Master will not be able to do much damage to you, except when it dies, because it always casts Ultima when it dies. Its Ultima is likely to kill everybody, so you have to either cast Life 3/Reraise on your party, or summon the Palidor/Quetzalli Esper to make everyone Jump just before Magimaster/MagiMstr/Magic Master dies, or use some other strategy to avoid it.

Your Reward

Your reward for defeating Magimaster/MagiMstr/Magic Master at the top of the tower is the relic Gem Box/Soul of Thamasa. Equipping it changes the Magic command to X-Magic/Dualcast, which allows you to cast two spells in one turn. However, you can't summon an Esper when it is equipped.
