Boss Battle Strategy

Boss Battle Strategy


  • Instant Death

The boss battle at the end of Nemeton Monastery includes two Star Gazers and one Grail Gazers. For this battle you have the choice of four characters from Yuri, Karin, Gepetto, Blanca, Lucia and Joachim.

The general strategy is to kill the Star Gazers before the grail gazer as they can use instant death and combo (equipping Leonardo’s Bears will eliminate the risk of instant death where using Hard Hit attacks will prevent the combo). As it is water type, using Karin’s physical attacks is advantageous, particularly at the end of a combo to maximize her damage output. If any party members have magic that can target more than one enemy at once, this should be used.

Ensure that combos are executed before the enemy has a turn, as the Grail Gazer can use magic that targets a circular area, making combo-ready groups an easy target.

Keep an eye on your party’s SP as combos can drain it quickly. Assign a healer for all stats.
