Battle Edit

The Abyss Worm normally uses a standard attack, Acid, a special attack which inflicts Sap, Landslide, and 50 Gs followed by Magnitude 8; due to its low Magic power, many of these attacks do little damage. It counters attacks with Acid, Shockwave, which does low magic damage to a single target, or Gravity Bomb, which acts similar to the Gravity spell.

The Abyss Worm's HP is only marginally higher than the normal enemies in the area, and so it should not be much more difficult to defeat. It is immune to all forms of elemental damage except Holy, so besides the Holy spell, non-elemental spells like Flare and Ultima are most effective.
