Setup your AI Battle Strategy
|Tactics||Protection is Paramount|

|Class Strikes||Do not use Class Strikes|
|Healing Items||Leave at least 5 of each items in stock|
Upgrade to Tier 3 Classes Prior Boss Battle
Once you acquire ??? seeds, return to the Sanctuary of Mana and plant them in the magic pot near the gold mana statue. Check if the class change items are the ones you desire. If they are, visit the special mana statue and change to Tier 3 Classes. If not, we suggest holding it for now until you get the class change items you desire since it takes time to acquire class reset items.
Cast buffs to yourself and your party members carefully while engaging Lightgazer. These buffs can be in the form of attack increase (Power Up), defense increase (Protect Up), and magic & magic increase (Mind Up). They can be accessed as innate abilities or consumable items.
Cast multiple debuffs on Lightgazer’s body and eye. 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.
Enchant Weapon with Dark Element
You can enchant your melee damage dealer with dark element. Elemental weapon enchants can be acquired from Item Seeds or through the Merchant Town Beiser’s Night Market.
Avoid the Trail of Orbs
Lightgazer plants orbs around the field which eventually detonates and causes Light damage to all affected targets. When closing in for an attack, avoid triggering the traps to approach the boss unscathed.
Unleash Class Strikes
Capitalize the dark enchant in your weapons and use your hardest-hitting class strikes against the boss. Then, follow up with another class strike from your other party member.
Be on the move at all times to avoid getting hit by Lightgazer’s close range moves such as Body Slam and long range moves such as Lucent Beam.
Keep on Healing and Removing Debuffs
While trying to avoid the attacks, make sure to secure your party member’s health. Also. keep them away from debuffs, status ailments, and status effects. If you don’t have Charlotte in your team, make sure you have Medicine Herbs, Stardust Herbs, or Marmpoto Oils in your stock.
Use Aerial Attacks and Combos
If you rant out of MP, deal continuous aerial attacks to combos to the boss instead. This will build up your character’s CS gauge over time in order to finish off the boss. Aim your attacks directly to the eye and body.
Break Blue Vases to Replenish CS Gauges
Break all blue vases around the area in order to to fill-up your CS gauges and use Class Strikes again.
Target the Cast Bar
Lightgazer’s area of effect attack takes time to perform. Use the remaining time to whittle the cast bar and prevent the attack from connecting. Make use of Class Strikes to deplete the cast bar quicker. If you ran out of time, go to the north and south of the area to avoid getting hit.
Use Dark Elemental and Summon Magic
If you ran out of CS gauges, make use of elemental or summon magic to damage Lightgazer. If you have Angela in your party, kite the boss from a distance using Dark magic. If you ran out of MP, consume a Faerie Walnut or switch to another party member.
