Gilder > Information
Here are strategies for the
bounty fights that Gilder can
take part in...Note that
these are SoAL only.
Rupee and Barta
This fight is pretty straightforward...
Make sure Aika uses her Delta Shield to
block Rupee's magic. Hopefully you
have a few Crystales or Crystalum
boxes with you. The only s-move
worth using here is Cutlass Fury...everything
else does very little damage.
First, and most important, is to set weapons
to purple. Then, while Aika does her
shield, have everyone else use the box
or crystal-es/um spells on Barta ONLY.
This is important as, if you damage Rupee,
he can use more powerful attacks. Barta
is somewhat predictable in his attack,
and if he charges, you can easily tell
that character to defend. After Barta
falls, keep that Delta Shield up and
Rupee isn't even a bother. A few more
attacks and victory is yours.
If you have prophecy for this fight,
by all means go for it. I didn't dare risk
Rupee's wraith though, so I can't tell
you how well it works.
Loose Cannon Lapan
He must be fought after obtaining
the Delphinus, but if you wait long
enough, you can get Gilder back
to help ;)...but although I hate
saying this, I think you'd be better
off with Enrique for this fight
since Justice Shield can help
a TON when he uses his really powerful
Basically, have everyone focus, healing
when necessary. Usually, he'll attack the same
character as his helpers (forget their names), so
have that character defend, healing with crystals
to save SP. When you're maxed, let that prophecy
rip. That plus a few more attacks will
beat him, no real problem.
These are some tough ladies. Most important
I think is equipping Fina with
an item to prevent confusion. Have everyone
else focus and heal when necessary. When
you're close to max, have Fina use Lunar Cleansing
to clear all status ailments, and then you're
ready to prophecy. One prophecy should take
them all out.
Alternately, (and you ARE using Gilder,
aren't you?), you can use Aura of Denial
and just prevent all status changes. How
nice! Have everyone else focus and have Fina
use healing crystals when needed.
Then, just prophecy and you've got it.
By far the most fun fight in the game.
Vize tends to use Cutlass Wraith or Revenge
(like Cutlass Fury and Counterstrike), Anita
uses Anita Burst, Anita Shield, and Quika
(like Lambda Burst and Delta Shield). Fiana uses Drilnos
and other attack and support magic. The easiest
way to beat them is a prophecy, but getting
there isn't easy. The first few turns you're
almost guarenteed to be safe, so have everyone
focus, and have Fina use Lunar Winds when
necessary. Delta Shield is also nice to have
after the third turn to negate Fiana.
Keep your health up with Gilder and Fina
(crystals) while Aika uses Delta Shield
and Vyse focuses. Most likely someone
WILL die, so have riselem crystals with you.
Both Sacrum and Sacrulen crystals are vital
for this fight. As long as a character is
defending, he/she can survive Cutlass Wraith.
Once you get to max SP, a prophecy almost
takes them all out. Fiana can be taken out
with a single Cutlass Fury or a few normal
attacks, Anita with a few more than that.
Vize alone is no problem at all as he only
attacks one character. If you get that far,
just use Cutlass Fury, healing when necessary.
Before you know it, your name will be cleared.
Daikokuya the Wealthy
One of the strangest combats ever...
Daikokuya (who will henceforth be refered to
as "Daku"), is a wimp so he wants at least
3 bodyguards. If there are less than 3
Boos, he will use "Bodyguard," which is a free turn for you
to attack. The Boos will use mainly normal attacks,
which you can survive no problem (at this point,
I had 2 Defensive Auras, which makes the wearer
take 0 damage from all normal attacks,
if you have these, USE THEM!) They also
have endless pockets of Sacres Crystals,
which they almost always use to heal each other
(only once did they heal Daku).
Daku also has a "Golden Flurry" attack that
damages all party members and can
confuse. He also has Eternes, but it never hit
for me. His Electrulen is also weak. That said, this battle really
isn't too hard. Have Vyse and Aika focus while
Fina uses healing when necesary and Gilder
does his Aura of Denial. If you need more
than one healer, fine too :D Let a prophecy rip.
It will take about 3-4 prophecies alone,
or you can damage Daku to about 1/4-1/5 health
before prophecying to kill everything at once.
As for the final one...I'm not there yet :P I'll let you
know once I fight it.
