|Vagrant Story Enemy|
Lesser fire spirits. Vicious opponents with fiery magic at their disposal.
The Fire Elememental can be defeated with relative ease by buffing a Blunt-type weapon with Frost Fusion or by raising its water affinity by other means. It is also recommended that you buff your armor with Fire affinity (using gems) to minimize its fireball attack. The Fire Elemental also never runs out of MP as it can replenish it with its "Restore MP" ability.
The same strategy for the Boss Fire Elemental still holds. At later stages, or on second playthrough, strategy is not even required.
