List of Chain Abilities

Zehnoa Boss Strategies

Here is a breakdown of the battle strategies against the boss:

Setup your Battle Strategy

Target Other Enemies
Tactics Protection is Paramount
Moves Use moves without MP falling to 50%
Class Strikes Do not use Class Strikes
Healing Items Leave at least 5 of each items in stock

There will be summoned enemies in this battle so we advise your AI companions to deal with them first before supporting you against the boss itself.

Land Debuffs

Trials of Mana - Zehnoa - Use Debuffs

Land multiple debuffs to the boss enemy at the start of the battle. Debuffs can be in the form of attack decrease (Power Down), defense decrease (Protect Down), and magic & magic defense decrease (Mind Down). These debuffs can be accessed as innate abilities or consumable items.

Cast Buffs

Trials of Mana - Zehnoa - Use Buffs

Follow-up the debuffs with multiple buffs to your party members. Buff moves can be in the form of attack increase (Power Up), defense increase (Protect Up), and magic & magic increase (Mind Up). These buffs can be also accessed as innate abilities or consumable items.

Use Water Element Magic

Trials of Mana - Zehnoa - Use Water Elemental Magic

Use water elemental magic or items to damage the boss from a distance. Also, it will disable the boss from using fire-based moves for a while.

Break Blue Vases to Replenish CS Gauges

Trials of Mana - Zehnoa - Break Blue Vases

Apart from dealing damage, you can also build up your party’s CS gauges by breaking nearby blue vases. Just make sure that you will break only a sufficient amount of vases enough to fill-up the gauges.

Enchant Melee Weapon with Water Element

Trials of Mana - Zehnoa - Use Water Elemental Magic

If you have access to Water Saber or Poseidon Claw, enchant your melee characters’ weapon with Water element to deal more damage to the boss. Elemental weapon enchants can be acquired from Item Seeds or through the Merchant Town Beiser’s Night Market.

Use Aerial Attacks or Combos

Trials of Mana - Zehnoa - Use Aerial Attacks

In order to keep your position, deal continuous aerial attacks to combos to the boss until it repels you. This will also help build up your CS gauge over time.

Launch Tier 2 Class Strikes

Trials of Mana - Zehnoa - Use Tier 2 Class Strikes

Capitalize the water enchant in your weapon and use your hardest-hitting class strikes against the boss. Then, switch to your other party members and use their tier 2 class strikes in sequence.

Get Familiar with the Trap Markers

Trials of Mana - Zehnoa - Safe Zones

If you got thrown to the back by Repel, make sure to avoid trap markers. You’ll find the trap markings covering the area right before its attack lands.

Avoid the Traps

Trials of Mana - Zehnoa - Hazard Zones

When you see the marks, move out of the way and also keep in mind to not trigger the traps while dodging. From the back, run through the middle safe zone. Then, move sideways when you’re in the middle of the arena. Lastly, cross the east or west corner to reach the front area of the boss again.

Bill & Ben Boss Strategies

Here is a breakdown of the battle strategies against the boss:

Setup your Battle Strategy

Target Other Enemies
Tactics Protection is Paramount
Moves Use moves without MP falling to 50%
Class Strikes Do not use Class Strikes
Healing Items Leave at least 5 of each items in stock

You will face one boss in the first half of the battle. Then, they will separate when their HP turns half. We advise you assign one of your AI companions to each boss.

Use Light Element Magic Only

Trials of Mana - Bill & Ben 1 - Use Holy Elemental Magic

The boss has strong resistance to elemental attacks except for Light. Your damage will start out small but it will increase over time as you break their barriers.

Break Blue Vases to Replenish CS Gauges

Trials of Mana - Bill & Ben 1 - Break Blue Vases

More likely you’ve exhausted all your CS gauges from Zehnoa and so we recommended breaking all blue vases enough to fill-up your CS gauge.

Keep Moving

Trials of Mana - Bill & Ben 1 - Jump and Roll

Being still is very dangerous. Always keep moving to avoid getting hit by Bill & Ben’s skills such as Shuriken and Shadow Menace . Move sideways or jump and roll to maneuver easily in the arena.

Launch Tier 1 Class Strikes

Trials of Mana - Bill & Ben 1 - Use Tier 1 Class Strikes

At 50% HP, Bill and Ben will separate from each other. Make sure to set them up near each other to maximize the damage of your class strikes. You need to take out both of them simultaneously to prevent one from reviving the other.

Use Buffs and Debuffs

Trials of Mana - Bill & Ben 1 - Use Debuffs

While taking them out, use buff or debuff skills to soften the boss enemies. Buff moves can be in the form of attack increase (Power Up), defense increase (Protect Up), and magic & magic increase (Mind Up).

While debuffs can be in the form of attack decrease (Power Down), defense decrease (Protect Down), and magic & magic defense decrease (Mind Down).
