Strategy to Fight Enormocrag
There are some important strategies to keep in mind as you deal with this boss in Bravely Default 2.
Avoid using White Magic
The first strategy is to avoid the usage of White Magic. The reason being that Enormocrag can make a Jamphibian attack which allows it to heal as much as the damage it deals.
With the usage of White Magic, Enormocrag will tackle you with Jamphibian, which will make the battle never-ending for you.
Enormocrag will counter the ailment moves with its Ramphibian attack. This attack allows Enormocrag to deal with 300 damage. Your strategy here should be to assign one of the characters to poison the boss while the rest heal from the counterattacks.
After you’ve managed to finish Enormocrag, you will now have everything you need to complete your quests. To claim your rewards, head on to the direction of Halcyonia.
After claiming your rewards, you will find the woman who will request you to deliver some goods to the tailor in Savalon. You will have to take the wagon to Savalon and head to the north.
Now you may grab the first Sidequest 017 from the tiny house in the north Savalon that you will find near the dressmaker. Now reach the palace and see Prince Castor at the throne.
You will find out that the king and Prince Pollux are missing; now head to the Gaming Hall. You will find the Gaming Hall with Prince Castor, where you will find out what’s causing the disturbance with the Water Crystal.
Before you proceed, acquire the Sidequest 018 from the throne room.
Now you shall head up the stairs to acquire the 3x Antidote. Make your way back to the town entrance, and here you will find the Side quests 016 and 019. You will also find a Spear in the house above in this area.

Now you have to take the Wagon back to Halcyonia in order to return the dress and borrow the book from the boy. You can take all of these things back to Savalon, who will exchange them for quest rewards. Now you can head back to the ruins mentioned before.
How to get to the Last Chest
During your journey in the Hydrangea Hills, you will observe that there is a specific chest that is unattainable, although it is visible to you. Let’s discuss how you can acquire this treasure chest.
Start your journey to this last chest by going up this road and explore for some chests and enemies. Stick to the left area of the Hydrangea Hills; you will eventually come across a hill.
You need to climb this hill, and you will be able to spot the chest across the mountain and connected with a strong bridge.
Next, you’ll encounter a tall tree that will be acting as a hurdle between you and your path to the chest. You cannot bypass this path and reach the chest quickly as of now.
The game requires you to reach a specific level to be able to cut and skip trees. Before that level, patience is the only way.
If you do have the ability to cut the trees, go back to the Hydrangea Hills and cut the tree that was blocking your way using Y. Once you’ve cut the trees and cleared the path with your ability, you will now be able to acquire your final chest of Hydrangea Hills.
This chest includes an Oak staff which is an upgraded version of all the other staffs.
