The DioField Chronicle Character Recruitment Guide
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 Andrias over Izelair as the active Soldier unit.
Assign non-active units as adjutants
In addition, assign a non-active Soldier unit (Izelair) 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. Capitalize on the Explosive Keg or use active skills if needed.
Lure enemies from the bridge
After taking the first tower, the bridge will be unlocked. Use AoE skills like Rain of Arrows or Meteor Fall to provoke them. Position Andrias and Fredret in front.
Use skills like Shield Wall to provoke enemies
When you cross the bridge, don’t command all units to attack the second area. Let Andrias come out first and use Izelair’s Shield Wall to provoke the five enemies.
After getting provoked, use the same tactics of bombarding the enemies with AoE Attacks. Capture the second tower afterwards.
Repeat the same tactic when clearing the third area but take it slow since there is a Cavalier enemy unit.
Examine the treasure chest
Don’t leave the third area and go east. Locate a treasure chest and open it. Then, take the third tower.
Heal allies first
Before you enter the fourth and final area, heal units first and let their active skills be ready.
Keep summoning Bahamut to deal huge damage.
Start the battle by summoning Bahamut to deal large damage to both bosses with multiple HP bars. Keep using the summons for damage and HP recovery (when using Goldhorne).
Use skills like Meteor Fall and Rain of Arrows to deal AoE damage
Lead with Andrias’s Shield Wall (through Izelair) close to the Explosive Keg to lure the bosses. Bombard the enemies using Iscarion’s Rain of Arrows and Waltaquin’s Meteor Fall. It will also destroy the keg for bonus damage.
Andrias will switch back and let him deal critical damage from the rear. Make Fredret the tank for this battle.
