Pacos Amethyst and Pacos Luvulite are crystalspawn born in the chaos of Valhalla.
Amethyst was once a pure chunk of ice floating on the seas of entropy, while Luvulite was a pool of molten magma that erupted from the unstable ground. Once both had matured to a certain size, they took on the apparent shape and cunning of beasts.
Pacos Amethyst is a boss in Final Fantasy XIII-2. It is fought alongside Pacos Luvulite in Academia -500 AF-. Defeating it with a five-star rating five-star rating earns the player the "Obsidian Medal" achievement/trophy.
The key to defeating Pacos Amethyst is to exploit its weakness to fire and avoid its ice-based attacks. It is recommended to use a Librascope at the beginning of the battle to ensure allies use the correct combinations of attacks.
Pacos Amethyst is quick to stagger, and the party can whittle down its HP with ease. Relentless Assault (COM/RAV/RAV) is an excellent paradigm to use; the ATB refreshing technique allows a decently-leveled party to get through this battle without the need to heal. Pacos Amethyst is not strong enough to endanger the party's health to the point where Medics are necessary.
It is recommended to destroy Pacos Amethyst and Pacos Luvulite quickly before the Split technique is used. It is unlikely that Pacos Amethyst or Pacos Luvulite will have a chance to use Split more than once when faced with a strong party.
