Zombie Dragon is my last superboss. Tried to fight it before Lamia and Dryad, but the Combustion gets me every time it uses its fire move. Party is Cannon Bearer Dragoon, Chain Duelist Fencer, Elemancer Warlock, Deathbringer Harbinger and Divine Herald Shaman. All lv80

Fire Mist/Blaze Prayer on top of stuff like Mana Guard. You can also just lock enemy down.

Again, keep up the ice chain train of pain.

As for combustion, keep a maxed blaze prayer up always during dark breath, bind zombie dragons head so it can't use fire breath, and just do a rotation of mana guard + gunmount till dark breath finishes.

Paralyse dragon and frigid reap it.

Weird. I find it the easiest. I can reliably stall him and tank his attacks (including combustion damage) now in order to get him kill himself with combustion. Meanwhile Dryad can still randomly blow away 3 members of my team if I get unlucky with her moves while I'm trying to get her to die to poison and I just fought Lamia at level 90 and I actually died three times with Mirina, not even trying to get her conditional because her binds and statuses just overwhelm me even though I'm using a botanist and shaman to keep them off me.

The zombie dragon uses dark breath followed by poison rain, so you can use those turn to go amplifier, chain plus, hail prayer, wilting miasma, then next turn use mana oracle and attack it with ice.

Then you can set up blaze prayer.

I found it safest to deliberately trigger combustion, so you know when it's coming and can put everything you need into guarding against it that turn. It won't trigger again until the dragon lays down a new miasma field.

Chain Blast + Hyper offense(e.g. having Chain Fencer equip with The Answerer) will work with postgame bosses.

Thanks to everyone who answered. Turns out that the panic+chain blast strategy works best for all the post game bosses.
