Hickory Dock's attacks consist of three moves:

  • Basic Attack - a simple sword attack
  • Mouse Fire - Shoots a fire ball at you
  • Tailspin - Confuses you and your Familiars

While Hickory Dock uses his basic attack, use Oliver to get in close to him and right before he swings run away, causing him to miss. Do this until he uses his next attack, either Mouse Fire or Tailspin (you can tell by the bubble above Hickory Dock's head). If he uses Mousefire, stay with Oliver and run in either the left or right direction until the red cross is no longer on him. At this point, use Oliver's Fireball attack to cause the most damage on Hickory Dock. If Hickory Dock's Mouse Fire attack misses, he damages himself and falls to the ground, allowing you a few seconds to attack. Always stick with Oliver for this. Should Hickory Dock use his Tailspin attack, simply press L1 and change over to your Thumbelemur. The Thumbelemur is unaffected by Tailspin. Quickly switch back to Oliver to continue fighting Hickory Dock until he is dead. Be sure to constantly be on the lookout for dropped blue and green glims to maintain your MP.
