Zaltys Ω is an enemy in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.

Battle Edit

Zaltys Ω could be a threat for unprepared players, due to its high HP and Strength. Zaltys rarely uses Blaze Burst which may deal major damage, so it may be wise to equip her with fire-proof accessories to reduce the damage from Zaltys Ω's Blaze Burst.

If Lightning is too close, it may start to use Swipe, Tail Hammer and Bite randomly. But, it often uses Stampede when Lightning is recoiled.

Strategy Edit

Lightning should be equipped with Debrave and Deshell to reduce Zaltys Ω's Strength and Magic resistance. Poison can deplete Zaltys Ω's HP in a short time.

Lightning should have at least Lv.2 - Lv.3 Froststrike or Lv.2 - Lv.3 Blizzara. The player should sever its tail to make it lose access to Tail Hammer and Swipe. After the attempt, Lightning should focus on staggering the Zaltys Ω with Blizzara and use Froststrike on its head when it is staggered, or take the chance to heal if needed.
