Strategy

List of pending activities

Below is a list of other activities to achieve higher completion. There is no turning back after you talk to Prince Olivert and agreeing to travel to Salt Pale.

Raise your completion rate by doing the following: Defeat all opponents in VM and Pom’tto, give all gifts, open all Trial Chests, unlock all recipes and then give them to the respective NPCs, craft ultimate weapons using Black Zemurian Ores, finalize quests, boost your campus enhancement rating, and record data on enemies.

Holy Beast of Earth Boss Strategy

Aim to reduce the boss’ BP. When its health gets low, it’ll start to use “Sublimation Halo.” The skill causes single target tremendous damage and inflicts “extinction” effect to all members. On top of that, the boss’ “Untouchable Barrier” reflects both types of damage.

Divine Knight 1 Strategy

Enemy Attack Weakness Details
Zorge (Sword) Normal Body
Slash Arm Causes single target moderate damage
Zorge (Gun) Normal Arm
Shot Head Causes party-wide moderate damage
Melgia (Sword) Normal
Slash Arm Hides sword behind diagonally
Order Head Boosts all’s STR

Patrick will join as a guest. His craft is lacking so aim to prevent attacks from connecting. After you determine which character the enemy is aiming at, use defend to endure the attack. Focus on the ranged Zorge to prevent any more damage from hitting all members. After taking it out, go for the melee Zorge and then take out the Melgia last.

Divine Knight 2 Strategy

Enemy Attack Weakness Details
Melgia (Sword) Normal Head
Slash Head Hides sword diagonally behind
Melgia (Gun) Normal Body
Shot Arm Party-wide attack
Testa-Rossa Normal Head
Slice Arm Moderate damage and inflicts burn on one enemy.
Magic Body Moderate damage and inflicts sealing effect on one enemy
Devil Arm Moderate damage and inflicts burn on all enemies.
Bow Body Lowers the hand

The second Divine Knight battle pits you in a 3 versus 3 team fight. Support characters shine here thanks to their party wide recovery. Focus on the ranged Melgia first and then take out the Sword variant next. When you’re left with Testa-Rossa, bank on heals and improving your durability to withstand the onslaught of attacks. The defensive play will be useful especially when the Scarlet Knight’s health goes down to half.

Divine Knight 3 Strategy

Enemy Attack Weakness Details
Mordret (Gun) Normal Arm
Head Draws the gun. Causes single target heavy damage and reduces STR
Hannibal (Halberd) Normal Arm
Buster Arm Draws weapon diagonally with both hands. Causes heavy damage to one enemy.
El Prado Normal Arm
Arc Arm Puts hand in front. Moderate damage and reduces ADF.
Slice Body Moderate damage to one enemy.
Saber Head Moderate damage to all enemies.

You’ll gain access to EX order “Thousand Force” during this fight. Focus on Mordret and then take turns attacking Hannibal afterward. When you’re left to face El Prado, keep an eye on your EP and CP. When the drive becomes available, use Divine Arc and Oracle Saver. Don’t forget to heal as needed.

Salt Pale Strategy

Salt Pale is a dungeon which involves using a specific team to defeat a unique boss. Below is a list of details exclusive to each team. There are five different combinations.

Team Roster Boss Details
A Estelle, Joshua, Agate, Tita, Renne Aion Type gamma II Capitalize on Joshua’s order and use delay inflicting crafts
B Lloyd, Elie, Tio, Randy Bells-Agroga Be mindful of its attacks like “Lost Genesis” art after reducing its HP to half
C Angelica, George, Sharon, Roselia Aion Type beta II Have Angelica and conserve BP to use Towa’s order when the fight becomes a chore. Like the other Aion, causing delay is useful here. Roselia’s craft helps gain CP.
D Duvalie, Ennea, Ines, Xeno, Leonidas Necro-Valis Regain BP and make use of Duvalie’s order. Again, focus on banking on delay effects.
E Aurelia, Arseid, Toval, Vita Aion Type alpha II When its HP falls, unleash S crafts using Crotilda’s order.

Once you reach the boss area, you can’t return to the previous areas. Ensure that you have picked up all items from chests and searched every nook and cranny before challenging the boss.

Unlike the other combinations, team E will face Aion type alpha II who’ll be running a timer when at low health.

Tuatha Dé Danaan Strategy

You’ll be facing multiple bosses as you navigate across the halls. There will be cutscenes to view and terminals to use in between each boss fight. Below is a list of details for each area.

Area Must have on party Boss Details
Corridor A Rean, Altina, Ash Major Claire, Major Lechter Have Proxy Puppet to withstand Lechter’s insta-kill. Break the gauge recovery when both bosses reach half health. Use “uplifting” and then follow up with S Craft. The skill of the boss depends on the health of its partner. Prioritize on using recovery.
Corridor B Rean, Kurt Prince Cedric, Sanguine Ogre Shirley Like Major Lechter, be cautious of Shirley since she has insta-skill and a powerful S-Craft when her health reaches half.
Corridor C 1 Rean, Juna Campanella the Fool, Primordial Alchemist Mariabell Use orders sparingly since Campanella can counter them. In addition, Mariabell has an attack that can be added to your battle notes. After uplifting, unleash an S-Craft.
Corridor C 2 Alisa, Jusis Rufus, Black Alberich Rufus has access to high damaging lost arts and insta-kill so have Proxy Puppet on hand or use an accessory. When down to half, Rufus can wipe your enhancements so be sure to put them back on.
Core Rean, Emma Blazing Demon McBurn McBurn not only has insta-kill but also inflicts burn. Use Recuria right away to remove the residual effect. Altina’s order comes in handy when the boss’ health is low.

Chancellor Osborne Strategy

The last boss involves a battle against the chancellor himself. Teams will be split into three and each team is assigned to roughly reduce the boss’ health to about 25% with team C having to take out half. Since the last team will be in charge of spending more time taking out the boss, assign your best characters to team C. Many attacks will come out each having one of various secondary effects. As mentioned above, don’t be stingy on healing items to weather the storm. Use items generously to buff the party such as Evasion, damage reduction, and power boosts. Another way to make the battle run smooth is to have access to reflecting physical attacks through S Crafts.

Divine Knight 4 Strategy

Enemy Attack Weakness Details
Ebon Knight Ishmelga Normal Head
Dark Flame Arm Heavy damage to one enemy and inflicts burn.
Karma Blade Body Heavy damage to all enemies and inflicts sealing.
Devil’s Violence Arm Heavy damage, reduces Speed, and drains HP

You’ll have access to McBurn’s Divine Flame for this fight. The Divine Flame fully restores all your gauges while removing status conditions so time its use well. Many of its attacks including party-wide attack and Devil’s Violence causes problems. Opt to seal its attack or unleash the drive. If you can’t use the drive yet, a good option is to reduce the damage. Have many Brave Stone ready and focus on BP recovery as well as chaining attacks. If you’re having trouble with heals and timing the drive, another way is to swap members.

Unlock the secret ending

A secret ending can be viewed after you have cleared the game for the first time. It can be accessed by defeating two new bosses that appear before and after the game’s regular final battle.
