Emphasize on area of effect skills

Have each party member at least at level 35 before you interact with this mini boss. The minions are weak to wind, while Haru’s fiance is weak to Psy. Ignore using debuffs for now since the boss can easily cancel them out. Whichever you use first, prioritize on using attacks that affect all three enemies. If using Haru, cast Mapsio to deal effective damage, then follow up with a Wind element attack to weaken the minions. Launch an all out attack when they’re down. The minions should be hanging on a sliver by now, so follow up with another multi target attack to take them all out. Pin the boss down again one more time for an all out attack before finishing it off with Psy attacks.
