Battle Strategy

To defeat The Mandragoras, you have to catch them and attack as quickly as possible. At the start of battle, they will scatter around the battlefield, making it harder for you to defeat them simultaneously. You have to eliminate them one by one. They all have Haste and are quite hard to catch. You can cast Dispel to disable their Haste. The Mandragoras will eventually gather together and start to chase you. This is a good opportunity to use a Quickening chain. They attack together during this phase, but will scatter again after you deal damage to them. Scattering gives them time to heal, so chase them again and eliminate them before they can fully heal.
