Lord Ganabelt Valkyris Strategies First Phase
Here is a breakdown of the first phase battle strategies against the boss:
Setup strategy to Focus on Healing
Before engaging the boss, set your party strategy to “Focus on Healing”. AI-controlled party members will still deal damage but will change their focus to using healing artes or consuming HP items to recover HP.
Carry HP and CP recovery items
In addition, bring a stock of HP and CP recovery items. These items can be bought from accessible shopkeepers or acquired from normal zeugles as drop items. Include life bottles in your supply and keep CP sustained in order to cast healing artes.
Equip accessories that resist Light Damage and Paralysis status
Furthermore, you can equip characters with accessories that can decrease Light elemental damage and resist Paralysis status. This will help you mitigate damage and decrease the chances of getting affected by the ailment during the boss fight.
Start the battle by casting buffs to party members if available. Buffs can be in the form of physical and elemental attack increase (Sharpness and Steel) and interrupt and critical hit chance increase (Concentrate). These buffs can be accessed by Rinwell and Law.
Lord Ganabelt Valkyris has no weak spots so focus on attacking the body of the boss. Keep attacking the barrier shield and let Law use his boost attack, Breaker Fist, to pierce through the barrier and destroy it.
Use any artes
Lord Ganabelt Valkyris has no elemental weaknesses as well so feel free to choose any damaging artes. Just make sure you have a diverse set of artes that can deal damage from the ground as well as from the air. Don’t attack all-out and leave room for evasion.
While damaging the boss during the first phase, it will unleash its attacks against your party.
|Lunge Attack||Once you see the boss raises its arm, evade sideways. Don’t switch to casters and healers since they will be caught off guard by this attack.|
|Light Beams||Once you see the boss casting, leave the front of the boss or evade sideways. If you get inflicted by Paralysis, use Recover or a Panacea to remove the status.|
Activate Boost Attacks
Complement your normal and artes with Boost Attacks. Law’s boost attack is highly effective for this boss phase.
|Breaker Fist||Use Law’s “Breaker Fist” to take down the barrier of the boss. This will also lower the defense of the boss.|
Lord Ganabelt Valkyris Strategies Second Phase
Here is a breakdown of the second phase battle strategies against the boss:
Lord Ganabelt Valkyris will summon four clones during the boss fight. These clones will act as a beacon for the boss’ barrier. Focus on one clone at time in order to break the barrier. Take note that the boss is also channeling a Mystic arte to damage your party. If you cannot clear all the clones on time, just make sure your party is fully healed.

More elemental attacks will be unleashed during the second phase of the boss fight.
|Flurry Attack||The boss with make sword hitting stance so evade sideways.|

|Thunder Strikes||Get away from the boss and get some distance. Let the strikes expire before engaging back.|
|Indignation||Heal and revive fallen allies after the attack immediately.|
