Hecatoncheir doesn’t arrive until much later in the game. Being the last Eidolon to tame, Hecatoncheir is also one of the most difficult. You are left only with Vanille and Fang to prove your worth and this Eidolon isn’t going to make it easy for you. We have you covered though, just follow the steps and you’ll be claiming this impressive quadrupedal mech in no time.
As soon as the battle starts you will need to press start and select retry. This obviously quits out of the battle and sends you back to just before the cut-scene. The reason for this is that when the battle activates a second time the main menu will pop up just before you head in. This gives you chance to make your own paradigms rather than auto-generated ones which are pretty useless.
When the menu pops up set up these paradigms;
- Vanille: Saboteur / Fang: Saboteur
- Vanille: Saboteur / Fang: Sentinal
- Vanille: Medic / Fang: Sentinel
- Vanille: Ravager / Fang: Commando
The de-buffing from dual saboteurs quickly builds up the gestalt meter up. After 2 rounds of casting, switch to Saboteur/Sentinel as Hecatoncheir’s attacks are very unforgiving. As soon as Fang goes into yellow health, paradigm shift to Medic/Sentinel class. The Eidolon goes through stages of attacking and charging.
When Hecatoncheir is charging, switch to Ravager/Commando and cause some damage. The Ravager/Commando and Saboteur/Saboteur boost the gestalt meter pretty efficiently so it is up to you what you use. Just remember to switch back to a Sentinel role when the Eidolon starts to attack again.
Follow the above steps and you will have no trouble in taming Hecatoncheir, the last Eidolon.
