Boss Battle Strategy

For this boss battle you must have Yuri and Zhuzhen in your party. The third character can be either Alice or Margarete.

If Alice is chosen, the boss battle is easier as she has healing skills and Margarete is weak to Yamaraja: Calamity’s fire attacks.

All characters should be equipped with Mirror or Cosmic Bracelets to protect against petrification. If this is not possible, make sure to stock up on Imp’s Fangs. Margarete’s Pain Killer Ability can be used to cure petrification.

If Alice is used, she should be the primary healer and focus on using Cure. When she is not curing she should use Blessed Light to do damage to Yamaraja: Calamity. Keep an eye on her SP as the battle may take longer than her sanity meter.

If Alice is not in the party, Zhuzhen should take the role of primary healer by using Nourishing Potion. If Zhuzhen is used for attacking, he should use his most powerful magic.

Yuri should transform into Inferno to protect against Crimson Flame – Yamaraja: Calamity’s most powerful attack. He should attack with physical moves as Yamaraja: Calamity’s special defense is quite high.

If Margarete is brought to this battle, she should deal physical damage.
