Strategy for Missions

  • Make sure your units have at least 5k HP.
  • Bring along a unit that can ATK/MAG break.
  • Bring along a unit that can buff Dark Resistance. If you don’t have one, try to equip your units with at 30-50% Dark Resist.
  • Turn 1 – Buff yourself with 4 stats, Dark Resist. Debuff ATK/MAG for boss.
  • Turn 2 onwards – Do whatever you need to build your Esper Charge. Cast Magic 3 times if you have spare units to do so. Remember to keep buffs and elemental resist up on yourself and keep ATK/MAG debuff on Boss.
  • You can also use Provoke to minimize damage taken by the team.

For Normal Kills

  • Buff yourself and debuff Boss.
  • Chain Kill boss after he uses Swath of Silence.
