Here is a breakdown of the battle strategies against the boss:
Equip Wadatsumi Magatama
Before the battle, make sure the Protagonist or Demi-fiend is wearing a Wadatsumi Magatama. This Magatama nullifies Ice attacks.
Pass Regular Turn to a Mind attacker demon
If you start the battle with Demi-fiend, make use of the Press Turn System and pass your turn to Apsaras or other demons that can use Mind attacks or skills. This will give an opportunity to deal more damage and earn more Press Turns along the way.
Use Mind Skills
Troll is weak to Mind attacks which Apsaras and other demons can capitalize. It can also give a chance for other party members to deal a critical hit or higher damage.
Land debuffs on the boss while leaving some MP for healing. Debuffs can be in the form of attack power decrease (Tarunda), defense power decrease (Rakunda), and hit/ evasion power decrease (Sukunda). These debuffs can be accessed by demons in your party.
Prioritize on landing Sukunda/Fog Breath first. Followed by Rakunda and Tarunda/War Cry.
Use Phys attacks
Troll does not have resistance against Physical attacks so add party members that specialize in this attribute such as Chronzon and other demons. If you don’t have them, just rely on your high-level demons and deal normal attacks instead.
Keep using Phys Skills that inflict Poison
Keeping using Physical normal attacks and skills to damage the boss. Better if some demon has access to skills that inflict Poison status ailment.
Keep the party’s HP sustained by using healing skills. Especially when other party members are using HP-consuming Physical skills.
