Description: This stone sentry was created to stand guard over Zere Rocks. It seems to be looking for someone called Mason...

Having lost its granite guardian, the statuesque town of Zere Rocks will surely now crumble into dust and blow away...

Abilities
Attack, stamps with giant foot, pounds ground (attacks entire party), Psyche Up
Spells
Magic Barrier, Kabuff
Encountered at:
Zere Rocks

Garth Goyle can be a tedious boss to defeat, as he constantly buffs himself with Kabuff and Magic Barrier, raising his defence and resistance to magic. He can also Psyche Up to raise his tension. His two ways of damaging you are a physical attack and a stomp attack that hits the whole party.

If you have a Mage that can Sap him, then the fight is not too hard, but if you do not, or Sap is frequently failing, then the best option is to Egg On a character to 50 or 100 tension and attack after Garth Goyle's defence returns to normal. You should also have a Priest to keep the party healed during the fight.
