|Enemy||# of Units|
Recommended Active Units

|Fredret Lester||Cavalier (Lance)|
|Iscarion Colchester||Sharpshooter (Bow)|
|Waltaquin Redditch||Magicker (Staff)|
Recommended Adjutant Units
|Andrias Rhondarson||Soldier (Dagger)|
Recommended Unit Placement
|DPS||Andrias, Fredret, Iscarion, Waltaquin|
Assign tank melee units such as Izelair or Andrias to the frontlines in order to lure enemies and become a damage sponge.
Command melee DPS units like Fredret to assist in terms of damaging the target from another position like the rear. As for range DPS units like Iscarion and Waltaquin, you must place them from a distance and away from the target range of other enemy units.
Set your healer and support units like Waltaquin away from the fight. However, make them reachable by your other units when they need protection or cover from other enemy units. Preferably get these units close to range DPS units like Iscarion.
Battle and Strategy Guide
Have a balanced team
Before you start the battle, make sure you have all class types playable in battle: a Soldier, a Cavalier, a Sharpshooter, and a Magicker. We prefer picking Izelair over Andrias as the active Soldier unit.
Assign non-active units as adjutants
In addition, assign a non-active Soldier unit (Andrias) as an adjutant. Adjutant units are not deployed in battle but their skills are usable by the active unit they are supporting.
Command all units to target one enemy at a time.
In the first area, there will be two enemies. Command all active units to focus on one enemy. Use active skills if needed.
Use skills like Shield Wall to provoke enemies
When you go down the stairs, don’t command all units to attack the second area immediately. Use Izelair’s Shield Wall on the three enemies.
After getting provoked, use the same tactics of bombarding the enemies with AoE Attacks.
Lure enemies from the bridge
More enemies will appear in the first and third areas. Instead of moving forward, pick one side of the second area and wait for enemies to come out.
Use AoE skills like Rain of Arrows or Meteor Fall to damage multiple enemies. Don’t forget to use Shield Wall from time to time to manage the aggro and your units’ HP.
Summon Bahamut to finish off the remaining enemies
If you’re out of EP, summon Bahamut to finish off the last group of enemies.
