Make sure at least two of your allies have access to white and black magic to deal AOE damage and recover from damage. Use the following abilities against Orpheus. Start off the boss fight by casting a black magic poison effect to deal additional damage the entire time. Now, it is time to focus on Orpheus’s party members and take them down one by one.

Once you manage to deal with Orpheus’ allies it will be left alone. At this point, the Orpheus will perform high damage dealing AOE attacks and single-target wind attacks. Keep an eye on its BP and default as it approaches 3. If you managed to poison Orpheus as I mentioned above, stay on the defensive and use the Vanguard to Treat the White Mage as the mage heals.
