|Ghoster||When the boss’ health is less than half, Malocchio hovers in the air and a group of specters appear.|
|Batmo Drain||Malocchio doles out attacks from the front and then charges in a straight line, causing damage to everyone within range and absorbing HP for every hit that connects.|
|Armor Repair||Malocchio gains a temporarily barrier that blocks regular attacks.|
|Annihilate||Malocchio warps to the floor and then traps enemies within a dark fog. He often uses this in tandem with his other attacks.|
|Evil Gate +||Malocchio casts a dark spell that causes heavy damage. The range of covers a circle.|
|Evil Rain||Marked area will appear below the enemy. Malocchio channels a dark spell to whoever he’s focusing on and the magic tracks the enemy.|
Here is a breakdown of the battle strategies against the boss.
Use Saber magic to change your hardest-hitting ally’s weapon to either Earth or Fire. You can also opt to have a magic class use spells of either element.
Use Class Strikes
Malocchio relies on using spells which forces him to remain on one spot for a while. Use this opportunity to land strong class strikes to interrupt his spells. Since he doesn’t make use of common attacks often, you should be relatively free to approach him while he’s busy channeling spells.
Take out the specters
The boss’ attack, Ghoster, has him summon ghosts on the field. If you don’t knock those out, Malocchio recovers tons of health. Track down all the ghosts to prevent the boss’ stalling tactics.
Dodge Evil Rain
Evil Rain is a homing attack so you need to always move around the field to avoid it.
