Spoilers!!!








Hey all,

So I really need some advice on the zodiac final boss. I'm very much a casual gamer, playing this for the story. I really hit my wall with the end boss. My characters feel very underwhelming.

I have:
(Equipment from perdida.)

Oliver: level 73 mite
Ester: level 72 monkey / Gemma
Marcassin: level 68 main / Gunther / thunder robot

Please give me some equipment suggestions and possible familiar combinations & strategies.

I used a lot of my MP recovery items on Shadar.

Thank you!

Buy a bunch of cappuccinos. Give Oliver the shining scales accessory (increases damage of light-based skills). His 2nd accessory should be a Medal of Agility (increases movement speed). Run away from enemies while casting Astra until the satellites are dead--you get Astra from completing Horace's quest line, see a faq if you haven't finished it yet. Then run around casting Mornstar. It can be helpful to buff Oliver with Hocus Focus if one of your familiars has that. With the amount of damage Olver will be dealing, the aggro will usually be on him, which is why the movement speed buff helps. If you have a tank that can use Yoo Hoo, that can be a good idea as well, particularly while the satellites are alive. Remember to All-Out Defend when she uses Chaos or the Storm AOE spell, and make sure Oliver is out of the AOE. This strategy worked for me at level 44, so you'll be fine. Good luck.

You can buy shining scales in perdida (or it might have been yule), and you can buy medals of agility with casino tokens. Pretty sure you can make both items with alchemy too.

Thank you very much for the reply, I'll be trying this later tonight and I will need to find Astra (ill use a FAQ on here.)

Again, thank you for the helpful playing tips.

Try attacking when the White Witch casts the Nix spell.

What a wonderful ending.

This was such a fun game to play.

Tonight, I finally finished the story too lol. Level 46 was impossible, so I thought I'd hit 50 and come back. Guess what?! 50 is still impossible too without item use! Dang it lol, I had to use so many res items, and of course I forgot to get the Astra spell. I'll try again next week Level 50 with Astra spell. But my guess is, 55 with Astra might be the minimum without item use. And yeah, great ending I agree!

Attempted at 54 with Astra but no items, got to below 75% of the Zodiacs then Esther died. Since none of my familiars have Upsy-Daisy I had to redo. 3 hours later, I never got past 75% again. Still not doable at 54.

"Cute" is a kiddy euphemism for "Sexy".
Online is the worst thing to happen to gaming.

I finished it lol, I just wanted to see what was the absolute minimum requirement level to win against the Zodiacs with no OP familiars, no item use and no godly weapons/armor. Just one or two more levels I think would do it.
