...Either I did something very different or had the skill build of a god.
I took down Darius at level 21 with zero issues what so ever. Lapis spamming Icewave every turn and Mari using Power Ballade to up Fang and Hector's attack made the fight painfully trivial.
After everything I heard about the boss, I was expecting nightmare incarnate. Mind I did have the best equipment possible at the time, and went back to get the ring from the Temple of Trials but...
Still, he went down pretty damn easily.
Each person might see a rose with a different shade of red, but the fact that we can all agree on is beauty -- that is a miracle.
Well I used Dragon Victory + harps and still after beating its feet I could NOT survive even 1 turn of its other 5 parts hitting any PC for +100 damage (its spells I had it do over 300+).
But at level 20 that kind of damage for 5 attacks in 1 turn is enough to KO all my PC's at once with FULL HP.
That and my only Healer was slower in the speed stat then the boss ie it attacked first before she could get a healing spell off.
i had trouble w/ him too at lvl 20 i went and gained 2 or 3 lvls and i won fairly easily just make sure u have a decent supply of medicine pills or whatever and provided u took them down to those respective spots fang's huge party atk buff and hector's huge party def buff will make things alot easier. w/ fang and that fight i just popped dragon's victory and did power charge attacks (don't use his fire stuff he resists it) w/ top of the line equip fang was doin 500ish dmg every other turn and hector was doin 300ish a turn w/ his fist skill (i forget name i just remember it cost 25 MP)
if u got the animas having lapis learn area high heal will help a ton too

Just beat darius with overall party level 23 and got no problem beating up the boss. Fang + Att up deal around 200, Hector + power charge + megaton chop deals 200 for every part, Lapis for healing (learn area high heal make the battle easy), and Mari + Tri-Frost.

Well Darius pretty much wiped the floor with me at level 20 since almost all of my followers where dead, I was almost out of healing items, didn't have much mana, and figured "First boss, should be easy anyways, should be able to beat it without returning to town".
Mainly because there was nothing that could revive anybody also. After 3 tries I went back to town and healed up/did some synth and beat him without any trouble.
I don't give a damn if you don't like me, because I don't like you, because you're not like me.
