@rapido Yeah, I guess I spent way too long job grinding in chapter 6 with a growth egg. At least now I have every job mastered by at least one person.

@Rapido There is an exploit (legal, no glitches) that gives you infinite money in the form of elixirs.......

Is that the Merchant skill where you will have the enemy buy an item from you?

Geez, Qada is so much more manageable if you just get a white mage up to level 9 and dispel the water of life spell whenever he casts it. That fight quickly went from being a nightmare to being cake.

Yes, but there are many more money based attacks in addition to that one

85% of boss battles are made easier with dispel.

So that's how you get rid of it! I just found out that you can attack your teammate to cancel it, similar to charm

My favorite grinding place is the area before you fight Mephilia in Florem. There's a high chance you get to fight 6 flower monsters at the same time which gives a lot of Exp/JP/PG.

I did a lot of grinding there in chapter 6 because of the enemies low speed, so I could group cast poison and exterminate all in one hit. Then I got Obliterate and everything changed.......

Obliterate. Lol. Anyway, After the last fight with the Duchy's elite troops in Chapter 8. And you fight all the troops again continuously. What are you guys tactics?

SPOILER ALERT:

I always have one thief in party with Rob Blind and now I have 99 Turbo Ethers and Elixers just because I wanted to steal. But its hard considering the different enemy party setups that you need to consider. I even had a monk setup with thievery on my third encounter with them and forgot to put on Master Thief Skill but was still able to steal items from all the bosses.

I am just curios on how other players setup their characters for such a well rounded continuous boss fight.

I just got there, but have been beating every boss easily with my setup.
Tiz knows pierce magic defence and lvl 6 time magic, so he uses hastega and veilaga and spams meteor and various black magic stuff. He also has the conjuror ability that regens 30 MP after each turn and the Head piece thing that reduces all MP consumption by 25%

Agnes is a Lvl 14 salve master with lvl 6 white magic and group cast. I have her spam shell and protect and gave everyone extend support so it lasts for 10 turns instead of 5. Also uses various white magic spells

Ringabell is a maxed out ninja with 100 avoid and vampirism as a second ability. Little attack power and defence, but uses that thingy to avoid any physical attacks.

Edea is a pirate who spams amped strike after using free lunch (4x damage, zero MP cost) Also has head thing that negates all status ailments, so Ringabell will send all attacks to her, while she uses nothing ventured.

I've been Big Pharma-ing pg to get my inventory and equipment squared away, so i need an enemy that can withstand three or four hits before i heal them — i know the flower monsters you're talking about, and they don't have enough HP for me :( when I start grinding levels and jobs again, though, i'll head on over and get mah Growth Egg on :3

@Maelstrom: I took the strategy mostly from here, but tweaked it a bit because it didn't really work for me as-is: http://www.theios.net/2014/03/06/ricos-bravely-default-boss-g...

How to Beat Lord DeRosso without taking a single shred of damage

Job levels required on your entire party: Ninja L.4 (Transience, Utsusemi)
Job levels required on at least one of your party, if not more: Red Mage L.4 (Turn Tables)
Job levels that help but are not required: Ninja L.5 and/or 10 (Comeback Kid and/or Kairai), Performer L.9 (One More For You, Buff Up), Templar L.7 (Rampart), Swordmaster L.9 (Counter Amp)

If your party members are not currently Ninjas, they MUST have Ninjutsu as a secondary ability in battle. If you don't have any L.9 Swordmasters in your party, I'd suggest Abilinking your heaviest physical hitter to someone who does have it, because Counter Amp is awesome for this strategy. Change up your jobs to physical hitters (I think I had two ninjas, my Dark Knight at critical HP, and a Templar for this fight) and equip Hermes items to those with lower Speed. You can also use Speed Up abilitles, whatever works best for you. The most important thing is that your party is fast enough to get an Utsusemi off before DeRosso has the chance to attack.

Step 1: Get one of your party members' HP down to critical. The link suggests getting one of them killed and then Phoenix Downing them, but I lucked out and had my Dark Knight manage to get down to like 7 HP during a fight. Having an HP-critical party member prevents DeRosso from using Gravija.
Step 2: Heal all of your other characters to maximum (I am not sure why this helped, but I tested this fight three times and it seemed to work best when everyone else was at full HP)
Step 3: Engage DeRosso. Don't bother Braving or anything, just immediately Utsusemi all your doods. It's all downhill from there.

Since your critical-HP party member is keeping him from casting Gravija, he'll only either use a single or group physical attack. It's sorta random which he does on any given turn, but they'll never hit your party due to Utsusemi negating the damage. Don't Brave, just go one-for-one on this boss so that you can always have an Utsusemi ready.

Whenever he does the single physical attack, Utsusemi will evade it and Transience will kick in, letting you counter and deal damage of your own. My Templar had Transience, Comeback Kid, Counter Amp, and Turn Tables on him, so he was earning BP toward the occasional use of Rampart and also dealing quad-9 counterattack damage, so there were times I'd also bust out with Kairai just so DeRosso would go after him over the others. I had Edea as a Ninja/Performer, so the occasional One More For You also helped to give me wiggle room for the occasional normal attack against DeRosso. I also had Turn Tables on my Dark Knight, who was able to deal 3,000+ damage with Minus Strike thanks to being down to 7 HP. Again, don't Brave, just go move for move with the guy, and while your doods have an active Utsusemi on them, just wail on the guy with your Buffed Up or Comeback Kidded or straight-up Minus Strike physical attacks.

The link says by his calculations it should take about an hour to beat DeRosso, but he was playing on Hard and he didn't tweak his doods the way I did, nor does he mention doing anything other than allowing his party to counterattack for damage. I'd imagine my tweaks would help things go a bit more quickly, lol. Unscathed ftw :3

Glad you were able to improve upon it :). I don't recall if I said it exactly but basically that strategy came about because I was fighting him late at night and thought to myself "I wonder if I can beat him while I'm sleeping because I can't bear the thought of waking up to this fight again."

Lovely game. Happy to have helped in any way :).

@Maelstrom

I see what you did there.

Good mage setup for Tiz. My mage setup is Vampire and Bushido (for free lunch) Abilies are Buff Up (I Use for all characters) and Phantom Weapon ability with Rune Blade equipped. You'll find that black magic-ja spells will do 9999 damage on all enemies with that setup, which will not always work during the continuous duchy boss figt as you have Alternis and Qada there which will Spam Minus Strike and Dark Breath and will kill one character in one go (max damage).

So I have 2 pure Single target/max damage characters in line up. Bushido/Piracy and Piracy/Bushido. BOth will do single target max damage which will decimate single enemy I want taken out right away. The difference is, the Pirate char will have a Shield equipped and will have a higher def. the other a two handed Katana user lower defense but has the counter ability (EDEEEAAA)

There really are a lot Healer setup in the game, i.e. Healing Lore, Holy one. But I find most useful setup for this series of fights is the Group Cast all setup. Will heal almost as good as Healing Lore and HOly one users and can spam support abilities when need be and can dispel enemies in one go.

YOu have a very well rounded team, but you will need to tweak it a bit in the duchy fight. But once you beat 'em (2nd round). It'll feel good. Hahah.

@theblackdragon

Then you are "the" Alchemist type then? :) . Good tactic, unfortunately, I had lost my patience for mixmatching items (pharmacy) when I had my first 20 - 30 combinations created.

Growth egg is the BOMB. I first thought you need four growth eggs each for each of the character. Good thing only one is needed. I had a friend who grinded level and was 99 back in chapter five. wicked.
