|16||Go through the door and prepare to battle Valclynimus.|
|17||Valclynimus is weak to light elemental attacks so Rinwell and Shionne will be very useful for this fight.
The boss’ jump attack damages targets in a wide area around its legs. When Valclynimus leaps into the air, watch its shadow on the ground and move away to avoid getting hit.
Run away from the boss when it goes into over limit as each of its legs can damage anything close to them when they are attacking.

|30||Follow the path to Zone 2 until you arrive at the Astral Energy Convergence Zone.|
|31||There are various teleporters in this area that allow you to battle various powerful zeugles to acquire rare equipment.|
|32||The next area will take you to the game’s final bosses. It is recommended to have acquired all artifacts which will allow you to carry over equipment, money, and other features to New Game Plus (NG+) before proceeding any further.|
|33||When you are ready, head for the marked location and watch the cutscene.|
|34||Afterwards, get ready to battle Great Astral Spirit.|
|35||Equipping Alexandrite to cut dark damage by 50% is recommended when going up against the Great Astral Spirit.
Because of the boss’ weakness to light artes, Rinwell and Shionne work very well as the main damage dealers.
When the Great Astral Spirit teleports, it will throw out an attack that covers a wide area in front of it. Run to the side or get behind the boss to avoid getting hit.
Once you have lowered the boss’ health to half, it will summon elemental spheres, each with a specific elemental attribute. Destroy them to prevent the boss from using a powerful elemental attack. The fire sphere is weak to water, the water one is weak to fire, the earth one is weak to wind, the wind one is weak to earth, and the light one is weak to dark.
The water sphere and light sphere, in particular, will launch annoying attacks so it is recommended to deal with them first.
The wind sphere can easily be deal with using Rinwell’s boost attack.
|36||After defeating the Great Astral Spirit, watch the cutscene.|
|37||Defeat the monsters that appear. Afterwards, move toward the boss and prepare to battle Subsumer.|
|38||As with the Great Astral Spirit, have Alexandrite equipped to reduce damage against the boss’ dark attacks. This is especially important for surviving Subsumer’s Black Hole arte if you get sucked in.
Rinwell and Shionne should continue to lead the offense since the boss is still weak to light artes.
Focus all attacks on the weak points on each of Subsumer’s arms, indicated by the glowing stones. Destroy the left arm first before targeting the right arm and the torso. Only when you have destroyed the glowing stones will you be able to damage the boss.
Subsumer will use its Black Hole arte when you destroy a glowing stone on one of its arms. It will begin to gather dark energy in front of it, so attack the boss’ weak points before it uses it and dodge just as it uses the attack. Mash the evade button throughout the attack as the black hole takes a while to disappear.
As you gradually lower the boss’ HP, special duo boost attacks will be available. At 3/4 HP, activate Rinwell’s special boost attack with Law. When at 2/4 HP, unleash Dohalim’s special boost attack with Kisara. Finally, at 1/4 HP, use Alphen’s special boost attack with Shionne.
When the boss summons its elemental spheres again, ignore them and focus on finishing off Subsumer.
|39||Watch the cutscenes. Afterwards, prepare to battle Vholran (final boss).|
|40||The fight against Vholran is very similar to the one in Del Fharis Castle, though you will need to engage him in a one-on-one duel.
Equipping Garnet to cut incoming water damage by 50% is recommended for this fight. Resist Ring is also a viable option to reduce all damage from elemental attacks by 20%.
It is very hard to stagger Vholran using normal attacks so resort to counter edges after performing perfect dodges instead. Your general strategy against Vholran should be to stand at distance from him and bait him into attacking. Dodge at the right time and follow-up with a counter edge, allowing you to stagger him and press on the offense before he recovers.
When Vholran starts to cast magic, interrupt him using Alphen’s boost attack just as he starts to chant. Note that you cannot do interrupt Vholran when he enters over limit.
After reducing Vholran’s HP to half, Alphen will be able to use the full extent of his sovereign abilities which will change your attacks to more powerful versions. From here, the battle cannot be lost as you will still be able to fight even when Vholran depletes your HP.
Once Vholran’s HP drops to 0, you will be able to unleash a final mystic arte to finish off Vholran.
|41||After defeating Vholran, watch the final cutscenes and ending.|
