Here is a breakdown of the battle strategies against the boss:
Equip Murakumo Magatama
Make sure the Protagonist or Demi-fiend is wearing a Murakumo Magatama. This Magatama resists Physical attacks.
Land debuffs on the boss while leaving some MP for healing. Debuffs can be in the form of attack power decrease (Tarunda/War Cry), defense power decrease (Rakunda), and hit/evasion power decrease (Sukunda/Fog Breath). These debuffs can be accessed by demons in your party.
Prioritize on landing Sukunda/Fog Breath first. Followed by Rakunda and Tarunda/War Cry.
Cast buffs on your party members as well. Buffs can be in the form of attack power increase (Tarukaja), magic power increase (Makakaja), defense power increase (Rakukaja), and hit/evasion power increase (Sukukaja). These buffs can be accessed by demons in your party.
Prioritize on landing Sukukaja first. Followed by Tarukaja/Makakaja, and Rakukaja.
Use Magic Skills
Lachesis does not have resistance to all Magic attacks. Using Ice and Electricity skills are better and both can also inflict Paralyze/Shock or Freeze statuses respectively. The damage will be higher if the party is buffed with Makakaja and the enemy is debuffed with Rakunda.
Boost Attack Power
In addition to buffs, you can also power attacks further by using Focus (next Physical and Almighty deals x2.5 damage). This damage buff can be accessed by demons in your party.
Use Physical Attacks and Skills
Lachesis does not have resistance to physical attacks so you can damage it with Physical skills. If you don’t have them, just rely on your high-level demons and deal normal attacks instead.
Keep the party’s HP sustained by using healing skills. Especially when other party members are using HP-consuming Physical skills.
