Asakusa Walkthrough Part 1

1 White Rider will appear at the Asakusa Terminal if you have cleared the First and Second Kalpas of the Labyrinth of Amala.
2 Approach the terminal to battle White Rider.

Defeat White Rider

1 White Rider voids fire, expel, death, and ailments.
2 White Rider has access to powerful Expel skill God Bow which has 100% chance to instantly kill a single target. Because of this, it is recommended to cast Tetraja at the start of battle.
3 Always focus all attacks on White Rider even if he summons two Virtues. Feel free to use debuffs on the boss instead of buffs to your party as the enemy can use Dekaja to remove them from you.
4 Have Gehenna equipped on your character to guard against White Rider’s Prominence, a strong fire type skill that hits random targets.

White Rider Boss Guide

Asakusa Walkthrough Part 2

1 After defeating White Rider, you will get the Candelabrum of Compassion.
2 Proceed to Ginza Underpass and prepare to battle Red Rider.

Defeat Red Rider

1 Red Rider voids electric, force, expel, death, and ailments.
2 Red Rider will summon two Powers at the start of the battle. These will constantly apply Tarukaja, increasing the attack power of their team. Counter this by using Dekaja to remove the opponent’s buffs or use Sukukaja to increase your evasion rate.
3 Beware of Red Rider’s Terrorblade skill that deals physical damage with a 30% chance to inflict Panic. Have your character equip Iyomante to gain Void Mind as it will be very disadvantageous to have him in the Panic state during the battle.
4 Unload on Red Rider with physical, fire, and ice attacks to chip away at his health.

Defeat Atropos

1 Atropos voids expel, death, and ailments.
2 The fight is very similar to the one against Lachesis. Use Anathema or Kamudo as your Magatama to accommodate the type of attacks you will use against her.

Atropos Boss Guide

The Obelisk Walkthrough Part 2

1 After defeating the three sisters separately, feel free to return to the save terminal and Fountain of Life to heal.
2 Ride the elevator. Afterwards, you can simply go down the block in front of you to face the Clotho, Lachesis, and Atropos together. Before doing that, move to the other side of the area and ride the block there. Go north to 135F. You can get to two Mystical Chests in the northeast and northwest from here.
3 Afterwards, use the block and backtrack up again. Use the block just after the elevator from before to go down to the area’s last boss fight.

Defeat Clotho, Lachesis, and Atropos

1 Again, equip either Anathema or Kamudo as your Magatama for the final battle against the sisters.
2 Use Fog Breath and War Cry to lower the enemy party’s evasion and focus all attacks on Clotho first to take out their group’s healer.
3 Turn your attention to Lachesis afterwards and make sure to cast Dekaja whenever she manages to apply Rakukaja and Tarukaja twice. Also be mindful when Lachesis casts Tetrakarn or Makararn which repel non-almighty physical and non-almighty magic attacks respectively for one turn. When Lachesis is down, unload on Atropos who should not last much longer than her sisters, especially if you have been debuffing her with Fog Breath and War Cry.

Moirae Sisters Boss Guide

The Obelisk Walkthrough Part 2

1 After defeating the three sisters together, you will get Djed (Magatama).

3 Head back to the terminal and save. Afterwards, travel back to Asakusa or head to Shinjuku Medical Center to battle Black Rider.

Shinjuku Medical Center

1 Head to room B204 in Shinjuku Medical Center.
2 Prepare to battle Black Rider.

Defeat Black Rider

3 It is recommended to equip Djed on your character during the fight to gain void against Black Rider’s Soul Divide skill.
4 Having a demon dedicate to recovery magic is also useful to keep your HP high enough whenever Black Rider casts Megidola and Megidolaon. Pummel him with physical, electric, and force attacks to chip away at his health.

Shinjuku Medical Center

1 After defeating Black Rider, you will get the Candelabrum of Wisdom. Along with the other artifacts you obtained from White Rider and Red Rider, you will now be able to enter the Third Kalpa of the Labyrinth of Amala.
