Here’s what you need to do to beat the boss named Nightmare.
How to Survive and Defeat Nightmare
To survive this boss fight, you need a few essential things. First, make sure your character has at least 1800 HP (health points). Nightmare starts the fight with a powerful attack that can instantly defeat you if your HP is too low. So, having enough HP is crucial for your survival.
Weapon and Spells:
Equip a Life Staff, which you can get from the life path and preferably at Stage 4. This staff is important because it grants you a special skill called Life Fruit. You’ll also want to use 6 or 7-Pillar Ice spells with an Advanced Focus Circle. These spells are essential for the battle strategy.
Using Ice Spells:
The Ice spells are key to keeping Nightmare’s agility low. This means he’ll have fewer turns to attack between your turns, giving you an advantage. So, use these ice spells to keep him slowed down.
You should have specific pets to help you in this fight:
- Seed Spirit: This pet will help keep your MP (magic points) high, which is important, especially because ice spells consume MP.
- Lucca: Lucca gives you extra turns, essentially increasing your agility. This is incredibly useful in the battle.
- Nekomis or Tia Rion: These pets are essential for maintaining the ice debuff on Nightmare. If you need to do something other than casting ice, they’ll ensure the debuff stays active. Avoid summoning Justice, as his fire attack removes the ice debuff.
Armor and Consumables:
By this point in the game, you should already have the best armor. Make sure your character is well-equipped. You may occasionally need MP potions, particularly after some of Nightmare’s attacks, as they can drain your MP.
The Battle Plan:
Now, here’s the strategy: Keep the ice debuff on Nightmare at all times, and use the Life Fruit skill whenever it’s available. This will gradually build up your health pool to as much as 7000 HP, which will help you withstand Nightmare’s high-damage attacks. If your total health falls below 4000 and Nightmare is about to attack soon after your turn, consider defending. Otherwise, keep attacking because you can now endure his upcoming attacks.
Follow these steps, and you’ll win this challenging boss fight through patience and careful management of your resources.
