Stats Edit

Battle Edit

It appears in the burning mansion in Thamasa, often in groups of three or more. However, with Strago in the party, his Aqua Breath will hit the Balloon's weakness to Water-elemental attacks and can likely kill even a group of six Balloons in one casting. Otherwise, Blizzara spells also work well.
