Focus on Defeating Dark Nation First

Rufus Boss Guide

Defeating Dark Nation will make Rufus more vulnerable as he won’t have shields or Bolt in his arsenal. In addition, Dark Nation won’t give you an item (Guard Source) if you defeat Rufus first.

Constantly Use Bolt and Other Magic Spells

Lightning magic is effective against Dark Nation. When only Rufus remains, bombard him with magic to quickly defeat him.
