Boss Battle Strategy


  • Slash
  • Poison

When you fight Oscar you only use Blanca. Blanca prevents you from backtracking to get better items, so it is a good idea to have Blanca equipped with his best items before he exits the forest. If possible, equip Blanca with a Shell Braceley to prevent Oscar from poisoning him.

It is most important to keep an eye on Blanca’s SP as he will have to heal himself and cannot do so if berserk. Because Oscar is a heavy enemy he is difficult to push back using Hard Hit, so using Soul Comet may be more effective than physical attacks. If Blanca is equipped with a crest that can speed in him, use it at the start of the battle.
