Final Fantasy 16: All Bahamut abilities ranked

Final Fantasy 16 has eight Eikons, which provide players with different abilities to use against enemies. Bahamut is one such Eikon, a dragon whose powers revolve around Light. There are five abilities in total, and all of them are unique in their own right. Here are all of them ranked from worst to best. 

5) Flare Breath

With Flare Breath, you will shoot forth a beam of radiant fire that will continuously damage anything in its path. While this ability is in effect, you can move around and direct that beam in whichever direction you want.

Apart from using it for the obvious reason of damaging enemies, it can be used to control and push enemies together, allowing you to combo them all at once. 

4) Satellite

Satellite summons multiple familiars made of light, that will attack any enemy that you cast a spell on. This is a great ability at mid-range and can be used to take care of enemies further away from you while you focus on the target close by.

It has a good stagger rating, so it will be effective to knock down tougher and larger foes. The only drawback is that its cooldown period is on the longer side, but that doesn’t stop it from being a useful ability.

3) Impulse

Impulse can be thought of as a better version of Flare Breath, at least in terms of utility. Impulse will allow you to summon multiple spheres of light that will continuously damage their target(s).

They will also keep the targets in place during this time. They can be detonated to do even more damage which will depend on the amount of damage they would have dealt to their targets before. 

This ability is higher than Flare Breath because it can dish out more damage in a shorter period while having a lower cooldown period. 

2) Wings Of Light

Wings of Light allows you to charge up and cast Megaflare. The longer you hold down the circle button, the more powerful this ability will be. There are levels to the charge, and you will be able to release it once it reached level 1, but it’s always a good idea to hold on until it reaches max. 

The best part about this ability is that you can dodge and move around while it’s being charged up, and the cherry on top is that if you execute a perfect dodge, the rate of the Megaflare’s charge will increase. 

1) Gigaflare

Gigaflare, as the name suggests, is essentially a Megaflare on steroids. When used, you will fire a massive beam of overcharged light that will obliterate anything in its path. It does a lot of damage and you can move around to control the beam’s direction like Flare Breath. 

However, this ability does come at a massive cost. It will cost you 2730 Ability Points, 3250 to upgrade, and 6000 to master, making the total cost 11,980.
