Enchant Weapon with Earth Element
If you have access to Stone Saber or Mole Claw, enchant your melee characters’ weapon with Earth 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.
Harcypete can be tough to attack because she flies in the air. You’ll need to chase her around the boss area to nail those attacks. Similar to regular Harpy, the boss has regular swipe attacks. However, you need to keep moving to avoid one of Harcypete’s Air Rush and Cyclone +.
Dodge the Attacks
Harcypete carries many area of effect spells such as Air Rush. Bait for her to attack and then wait for them to subside before approaching and punishing her with your own attacks. Among the spells she uses, Cyclone + is linear which is fairly easy to dodge compared to her other abilities.
Break Blue Vases to Replenish CS Gauges
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.
Use Earth Elemental Magic
If you have Angela in your party, kite the boss from a distance using Diamond Shards. If you ran out of MP, consume a Faerie Walnut or switch to another party member.
Use Class Strikes to Prevent Supersonic
After reducing her health significantly, Harcypete starts to use Supersonic, an ability that takes some charge time. When the arena starts to glow red, close in quickly and whittle her down to interrupt the charge. If you do it right, not only will Harcypete stop charging but she will also stagger, giving you enough time to follow up with more attacks.
