I finally made time to play this game as I always wanted to. Figured why not since this games 14th birthday was a month ago and Xenobade is coming to NA soon. It's a rather fun old game with a very interesting plot as you get farther into the game. I'll be uploading these in between upcoming Brawl fights next week and such.
This isn't the first boss of the game, it's the first one I felt actually feels like a boss fight. So just like FFIX, I'm only uploading what I believe are the epic fights and such.
This particular fight happens because Bart is trying to rescue Margie from Shakkan, when Ramsus shows up to stop them.
- Video spoilers*
When Fei steps in, Ramsus has a quick flashback of a mysterious man taking down Gears effortlessly by himself. Ramsus seems to believe Fei is that person and attempts to get revenge on him for his defeat back then. (the game shows at some point that Ramsus has reoccurring nightmares of that guy).
Fei: LV22 - Metal Vest, Leather Hat, Power Ring Bart: LV23 - WhippaSnappa - Red Mail, Power Ring, Stamina Ring
This isn't really hard unless you play stupid or have no items to heal. First fight is a 1 vs 1 against Ramsus (Margie & Miang are background support allies, you can't control Margie). Best bet is to just spam Death Blows. If you haven't been training them, you may only have one at this point. (T X). Ramsus hits pretty hard, so you might have to heal yourself with an item. Hopefully you bought plenty of the inexpensive healing item for 50HP. If not, you're going to be in trouble, because Margie's healing is pretty poor and misses half the time.
When Ramsus goes into his Mirror Stance, it means not to attack him. Doing so will get you slammed with a powerful counter attack that will probably lead to a Game Over. Unfortunately Miang will spam healing during this a lot, so not much you can do. Use the opportunity to fully heal.
After taking him out the first time, you'll get a rematch with Fei. It's much easier with Fei, as he has a healing move just in case, and between both characters Death Blows, 800HP won't last long even with Miang's healing.
