Hero’s diet (Seaweed and Rotten Hardtack) and 5 potions
Strategy: Weaken gananana to ice using Vanilla ice katana (needs to be first round to work right). Switch to Ultimate Dragon Amulet Scythe of Elementals (level 90) set to ice, Esclense Dragon Defender Blade (level 80) shown. Cast Dark Ritual on gananana. Cast weaken and / or have your dragon cast tickles on gananana and hope to God it (or if you cast both one or both of them) works to lessen gananana’s attacks while Dark Ritual is up because it strengthens gananana. Cast corruption on gananana to get an extra 30% weakness to ice on him. Have your dragon cast boost on yourself. Cast inner darkness on gananana, this should kill him, hopefully before mega beam or just after it, but indubitably before he can cast statuses, which is good because you don’t have a purge on doom knight. Everything has to line up right. It can take several fights for this to line up right, so be patient. Throw the fight if you have to if it does not, makes it faster.
After this the fight is relatively easy, Augahim’s attacks are strong but with hero’s diet, your potions, your drain (especially after corruption),and an occasional Reflect if you feel you need it, you should be able to manage.
I figured Doom Knight would be a good choice to survive Augahim’s onslaught due to its high natural defense and offense (probably the best in the game for balance of both combined). What is key, and has to line up right, which can be a pain to get BOTH, is:
#1. Your vanilla ice katana has to proc on the first turn to weaken gananana
#2. You have to survive gananana’s attacks which are strengthened from casting dark ritual while waiting for inner darkness to unlock
If you get both of those to line up right, you have no statuses to worry about, and just need to focus on Augahim after their attacks get stronger and your attacks get weaker. Remember, unlike soulweaver and chaosweaver, doom knight does not have a purge, so you have got to get gananana down by the first mega beam!
