Use Class Strikes to Deal Heavy Damage

Use Class Strikes to deal more damage to the boss. If you want it to be optimal, make sure your CS covers both enemy golems. Switch among your party members to unleash multiple barrages of class strikes.

Deal Combo Attacks

If your character ran out of MP and CS gauges, deal combo attacks to the golems while avoiding their target lines. Once you have a character that has a full CS gauge, switch to that character and use his/her CS move.
