Battle Edit

Number 024 is vulnerable to Sleep, and players should take advantage of this. Sleep can be easily learn from the Siren magicite.

The boss can use Barrier Change to alter its elemental weaknesses and immunities, and as the party is likely to be equipped with elemental weapons found in the Facility, they may end up accidentally healing him when they attack. He can also confuse party members using Overflow.


Number 024 has a vulnerability to the status ailment Imp. Although it may miss at first, once Imp is cast, Number 024 can only use a physical attack, making the battle much easier, although his physical automatically criticals when Imp, so the party will still need to heal. Although powerful physical attacks will work, the party can also wait for Number 024 to use Barrier Change once, then Imp him and take advantage of his elemental weakness now that he cannot change it. If Gau is in the group and is at level 24, the Zaghrem Rage will allow him to cast Stone, which deals eight times the damage to targets of the same level as the caster.

The player has the opportunity to acquire the Blood Sword early by stealing from Number 024, though this is rare. The player can save beforehand near the Ifrit and Shiva battle location, and repeat stealing until the Blood Sword is obtained.
