@Balta666 ya for sure. I did try that a couple times. The funny part is, I destroy him most of the battle and never once do I feel like I'm teetering on the edge of losing. All of a sudden, bam, my entire team goes down. Its an odd boss battle bc of that.

You have got at least 1 sands of time accessory, right, @NintendoByNature ....? Bard's really good against him, along with if you have Pictomancer & even better if you nearly mastered that Let us know how it goes

@BruceCM I have the sands of time pendant( only 1 though as I just got it). Does it matter who uses it? I also have pictomancer and bard fully mastered at this point. But what abilities should I be using for those two jobs?

NintendoByNature

BruceCM

Well, he uses mostly magic, so your 1st priority is to decrease that, @NintendoByNature ..... His 'nasty' triple attack is actually ONE move! Then, several jobs do have abilities that can protect you from his 'stop', which is otherwise a big nuisance & the accessory for whomever seems most likely to need it out of the rest of your party!
Your main problem after that is his weakness being dark, which most of your party can't really target & that's where your pictomancer comes in with scuro! Beastmaster is supposed to be really useful, too but I didn't have one, so I don't really know much about them.

No problem, @NintendoByNature ..... Vanguards & Berserkers are good, too but let us know how it goes & if needed, I'm sure others here have some ideas, too

Wow, finally after a few days, I beat Domenic.. wouldn't say I had a specific strategy. Guess I just got lucky this time around as I didn't try anything new or different. Sure hope this isn't forecasting what's to come in terms of difficulty later in the game or I might have to check out lol

@NintendoByNature Sorry for the late reply. Good that you make it out of that boss. One strategy that could help is stacking elements resistance, as they become more stronger. With 2, you can nullify one specific element. Where you are there’s an ice cave (the second one) that have the shiny birds that give a lot of experience.

And of course, use status ailments. The status attacks may make it on the easier side, but with how the bosses have the BP +1 when one does X or Y action, there’s little to do. Although another option would be to capture monsters with stat ailment attacks, which there are plenty in this game. Banish and Banishra were possible to use way before defeating spiritmaster thanks to the monster job.

Well, naturally, bosses do tend to be difficult, @NintendoByNature .... But then you'll have more jobs or have mastered more jobs, with better weapons & armour, etc! If you like doing most of the side-quests, you shouldn't need to grind much Keep us posted, I'm sure we'll be able to get you through it all

@BruceCM thankfully, I fairly easily beat Lonsdale. Although it was quite the grind with the mount of HP he had.

NintendoByNature

BruceCM

Did you happen to have magic focused jobs for him, @NintendoByNature .... ? Anyway, if that's the 1st place you went as there's a choice, the others are more difficult

@BruceCM eek. Yea thats the first place I went. I used the health bringer and white mage curaga endlessly to get through it. Worked rather well. I also used the sword Master counter attack as well.

BruceCM

Cool, that is where I'd have said to go 1st, @NintendoByNature .... Where next?

@NintendoByNature From what I remember, after you beat Longsdale the desert mission is the medium one in terms of difficulty. Be sure to not let her attack often, unless you have an element to reduce/nullify those attacks. This one (and most bosses from here on) can gain BP too, though only when you use magic from either attack or healing. However, she can also counter attack when she is attacked. When she has low HP. It can deal 6,000 when it uses stat buffs.

Btw, now that you have the mage jobs from Helios and Domenic, you can make the enemies physical attacks be of one specific element (one of those two have that magic move). You can (if you have trouble with her) equip your party with the items/talismans that you have the most and make her attacks be of that element. Just remember that after 2 to 4 turns, you have to use that magic on her again to continue halving/nullifying her attacks.

@BruceCM savalon is my next stop. I already did a few things here and did a one shot chance on the boss. Way too hard thus far. I may just do some side stuff and look for those shining boss fights out in the wild for some XP.
@X-Slayer I'm trying to take that all in. I'm still a little new to JRPGs so alot of this flies over my head. I really appreciate the thorough response and I'll attempt to try that. Hopefully with me grinding, and leveling up some newer jobs, including the one from Lonsdale, I should have it be quite easy.

X-Slayer

@NintendoByNature I can relate to that. When I returned to play Pokémon in Pokémon Y after 6 or 7 years (Diamond), I had to learn many of the new abilities and new moves. I looked up the element ability name, and it’s called Elemental Supplement. It’s from the Oracle job (sorry for also mentioning Helios, I didn’t recalled then). If you need a more bit by bit explanation, just ask.

@X-Slayer awesome thank you again. Oracle is nearly mastered at this point by Gloria. I've found having Gloria be my white mage and Elvis being my spirit master, I've had two sizable boss fights be very manageable (I just did the optional dead horse boss in the desert). Between that and Lonsdale, I, for the most handled it fairly well with only a couple scares. I've also had both Seth and Adele be swordmasters with a sub of monk. Think that's enough to head in to marla or perhaps have more jobs like bard and pictomancer?

NintendoByNature

BruceCM

Oracle & Spiritmaster are great jobs, @NintendoByNature .... What are the subs for those 2? As for Marla, let's just point out she has an excellent asterisk to give you! If you have a spear for any of your physical attackers, that helps?

@NintendoByNature as BruceCM said, spears is one of her weaknesses (to no surprise, light is her other weakness). Remember to use the Element Supplement on her and equip your party with the same resistance as the chosen element.

@BruceCM perfect I'll be using them. I'll have to see what sub jobs they're assigned to, as I can't recall off the top of my head.
@X-Slayer I will definitely use spear, as well as elemental supplement
