As always, we’ll post a more in-depth analysis of ways to counter these bosses in the coming days.
The a4 banish is ambiguous… I’m concerned that it’s a remove from battle, especially considering there’s no contingency for getting that champ BACK. Like the griffin, this may be a race against the clock kind of battle, take too long and all your champs will be gone.
I am maxing out Inquisitor Shamael for this fight. Then I am going to try to bring all void champs. Shamael will counter attack 5 times when boss uses a1, 5 more times when the boss uses her a2, and another 5 times when she uses her a4! He also removes all the fears that the boss places on her a2 and a4! I really hope this works out the way I’m thinking it will. I am thinking, in order from fastest to slowest, Psylar (stun set), Lydia, Ursala, Lua (to nuke mirror copies), and Shamael.
after a lot of frustration and agony, i finally managed to put a 4-man team to beat this B, as a F2P player my options were a bit limited but the team was Deacon (as lead for that speed boost), Ninja, Saito and Scyl in relentless gear. Need a bit of luck for that relentless gear to proc, so can not say it is a 100% always win, but non the less, it worked… for now…
