This boss has 70920 Health and is weak to Darkness, Daggers, and Staves. He takes half damage from Bows, Fire, Water, and Lightning. Absorbs Earth. Domenic is an Oracle, so he is capable of Slowing you down and Stopping you. Try to wear items that have resitances or nullify these Ailments to make this fight go smoothly.
He has an answer for Physical Attacks with Stop, so ensure your melee fighters have the right equipment in place. Freelancers with Square One can take on time magic ability effectively. Berserker’s Unshakeable Will will make Domenic’s time magic effect useless on all your party members.
Domenic will spam Reflect in the second half of the fight, so in this phase, casting spells would have no use, keep to physical attacks only.
When Domenic’s health is really low, he’ll get seperate and begin to cast Bomb Arm, which he may even use as counter to attacks. White Mage or Salve Maker must be there so that your party members don’t die out.
Ensure you have ample magic resistance as we know that Domenic is a magic-oriented boss and will use Tirplga (Fire blizzard and thunder!),. Finally, a Shieldmaster is amazing here as it is able to use Bodyguard and protect your healer from Domenic’s spells and some of his Bomb Arm attacks.
Finally, the Oracle will die and you will have the Oracle job unlocked.
