|Final Fantasy XIII Boss|
The Manasvin Warmech is a boss in Final Fantasy XIII. It is fought three times — twice in a row as the first enemy encounter of the game, and once more in Lake Bresha. Defeating it chapter 1 earns the player the Instrument of Fate achievement.
Encountered by Lightning and Sazh, the Manasvin Warmech is not only the game's first boss, but the first battle, making it very straightforward. A tutorial plays at the start of the battle informing the player the battle basics. Repeatedly choosing Auto-battle and targeting the Warmech is all that is required to defeat this enemy.
After the first victory, the Warmech fights yet again. It utilizes a more powerful area-of-effect attack and has considerably more health, but choosing Auto-battle repeatedly will soon defeat the enemy. There should not be any need to use any Potions.
This battle is more tricky than the first battle with Manasvin Warmech as it has more devastating attacks. Fought by Lightning, Snow, and Vanille, it can easily kill the party leader (Lightning) using Crystal Rain, thus it would be wise to make Snow a Sentinel so he can provoke it and take the attack instead and have Lightning and Vanille focus on attacking and staggering it.
Once staggered, switch to the Paradigm Aggression (COM/COM/RAV) and attack. Heal when necessary, and rinse and repeat.
