The Archadian Judges are the supreme enforcers of Archadian law in the world of Ivalice. Each wields extraordinary legal power in his/her own right over lower-ranked Archadian officers. In addition to functioning as legal administrators, they are also charged with the task of guarding the royal family.



Judge Master Gabranth: The leader of the Judges. Seems to have some history with Basch and also has a close relationship with Vayne.
Judge Ghis(The first MAIN judge you fight): Responsible for guarding the young prince Larsa and supervising his actions.
Judge Drace: The only female Judge. She, too, is charged with guarding Larsa but also acts as his personal advisor and makes it her goal to secure his future and help him develop to his fullest potential.
Judge Zargabaath: A strictly military man who absolute loyalty to both the empire and the emperor.
Judge Bergan: The most autocratic of all the Judges in both word and deed. He answers to Lord Vayne and is an outspoken advocate of turning Dalmasca into a complete military dictatorship under Archadian rule.

Whoa.. almost read the whole thing.. WHEW...

I only got through the first one.. Obviously Gabranth has something with Basch.. he's seen WITHOUT his helmet in Basch's prison cell. Nuff said. No idea why you would have posted this as it is in a HUUUUGE 14 page article on FF in PSM or was it OPM.. i can't remember

Yes, but the 2nd judge you list -

:::spoiler:::











I didn't have to know within that first sentence that he was the first I was going to fight.












:::end spoiler:::

That's when I stopped reading. Get out of here with your spoilers and your boot-leg FFXII game.

sorry bout that ...
Anyways I fought a judge the other day, (i wont say which one) and i trained well for this battle. So when i went to fight him, the judge litterally kicked the shit out of me. that battle alone took me about 25 minutes-1 hour of Gameplay fighting to beat him. So just a heads up to you guys before you fight any judge. BE PREPARED FOR A HARD FIGHT. In my opinion the judges are pretty much the hardest mandatory bosses i've ever played in any ff game.

You should still watch what you post here. I think it is a given that the judges are gonna be a pain in the ass as they are the primary focus of the story. I mean seriously.. they wouldn't have put gabranth on the cover of the game if that were not the case. We just ask you to properly mark your posts if there is anything that might be a spoiler. Knowing who you fight first and what roles are in the game is considered a spoiler. I am not as hardcore about the no spoilers thing as I have the strategy guide and have made no attempts to leave it unopened until the time comes, but others are. So be courteous.

I do love The judges... Watching them in the opening FMV of FF XII has really made me adore them. And I like the Ships in FF XII also. Emm... actually jugdes are quite easy to fight if you well prepared. Don't forget to look at your Gambits to make the fight easier.

I'm of the same opinion, hearing everyone complain about judges, they are quite easy if you go prepared (or lvlup insanely like me...hey, I've made a 100+chain -_-)

Then why did you read it, let alone post? I hate people like you! Don't post if you don't like the thread!



Back to the PURPOSE of the thread. Yes.. the judges are awesome. They give an air of superiority and mystery. Some of their faces don't really match up what I thought they would look like though. Gabranth was by far the most intriguing. I can't say what he looks like cause that'll spoil a little bit of the story. I've only seen Ghis' face other than Gabranth's so far. Ha.. he definitely looked like some british royal.. hair all jacked up and lop sided.

Yea i totally agree Gilthanos, If you dont want to read about this thread then dont even bother posting, we dont want to hear your stupid little comments.

Haha and about gabranth he is the ugliest ff character i've ever seen seriously, he has the ugliest hair and he does look like a british man. (i think i like him better with his helm on) ;)

GHIS is the funky guy.

The Garif. Ozmone Plains can be a pain in the ass. I'd take the time to lvl up and get some new gear, spells, and licenses before you head there.

Yea thats what im doing right now, i just went back to rabanstre to do some of those hunts in the sandsea bar. All my characters are at lvl. 20 so ill probably train them all to about lvl. 22-23 and get all the best weapons, helms, shields etc. that i can get my hands on.

Don't worry about level.
Get yourself the most powerful equipments available and you'll be Ok.
The best is to equipped yourself with equipments more poweful than what is sold in market.

If you've fought all the judges...... which judge do you think was the toughest and why???

Gilthanos
11-07-2006, 09:05 PM
I'm sure Gabranth is the hardest. Why? Because he's the MASTER JUDGE!!

I've played for about 110 hours and my characters are at Lv 60+ now. Quite a journey eh? I'm about to finish the game soon... And about the toughest judge, I'm pretty sure that Gabranth is our man. I've fought Bergan and he's quite easy to handle if you prepared yourself enogh with healing gambits.

My suggestion for your characters Lv.
If enemies in an area is weak or < Lv. than yours. You should try to move on where the enemies are stronger Even if it's really hard. Use save crystal often and you should be fine. Later, you will get acc. which will be doubled exp. you earned.

Ghis=pretty easy if your prepared
Bergan=If not prepared then could be a not so easy battle
(so far these are the only jugdes i fought)
The hardest boss i fought so far was probably cid. Damn he has pretty crappy defense but, if you dont have dispel (which i didnt) it would be a hard fight, at one point i thought to myself that i could never beat him but luckily my ff skills kicked in and i strategically found a way to kill him. (so far the funnest boss i fought were those 6 little rascals in the palace cave (on the way to archades) werent very hard but it was a fun battle :p
