How do I beat Rune Prana 5?

I've got the best equipment (excluding the duel blades you need that confounded legendary scale for) but I can't get past the mermaid :/ any suggestions to speed up this process cuz I'm getting fed up with how long this dungeon is taking (I've been at it for well over a week).

Additional details - 9 months ago

The problem I'm having is with the mermaid boss battle. Even though magic defense is about 3600ish and I'm level 197, it one-shots me every time with its music attack when the projectiles surrounds me so I can't run away from the notes. Is there some sort of special resistance or special technique to live longer than one shot?

Ohh and I'm bringing two greens with me.
Sorry about the vaugeness

Can you tell us more about your set-up, who you're bringing with you, and what exactly is going wrong in the fight? It's hard to give you any advice otherwise.

She's killing you with her instant death attack then. Her song notes can cause random status ailments, including OHKO. Equip a Diamond Brooch to avoid this, or temper an accessory with Faint Resist items like Big Bird's Comb and Proof of Rank. Good luck!

You can try my method by throwing fail dish or super fail dish to the boss.

I used axle disaster and Silent grave make sure you have talisman equipped it helps. I took her down before she could summon. When she gets ready to sit on the ledge she is going to probably going to sing. you can dodge the notes if you are careful. But make sure your weapons are not mag atk or water.

Well... I went to the sharance maze and tamed a buffamoo... that got me through Runa Prana because while riding monsters, they get the damage and you don't... plus Sharance Maze monsters are at an extremely high level... after I got the Buffamoo, I pretty much breezed by Runa Prana... Hope this helped.

Some of the notes from her song attack have a chance of inflicting 'faint' or KO status upon contact. This is usually done if they are black in color but this is only a theory (the black ones always seemed to KO me in one hit while yellow paralyzed and purple poisoned and light blue seemed to put me asleep, while green or orange drained health in my case) I find using a spear with axel disaster helps get her if she is in the middle of the lake or away from reach. I beat her by also having a Yellow from Sharance Maze. She decimated the siren's health bar in a matter of two attacks. On a side-note: If you wish to tame her, have some Ultimate 4-leaf clovers on hand. She can help decimate anyone during the buddy battle.

I don't know if you've beaten it by now but something I've noticed is that it's notes come in set directions so if you've gained resistance to it's OHK move then just keep attacking from the upper section of the map and you should be able to avoid it's health drain attacks.
