Galahad Strategy Guide

Use Bare Handed Tactics!

There are several immunities and resistances for the Picto-demons. Unlike the previous boss battles, you'll have to fight them together so equipping a weapon that's universally effective against them is extremely effective.

The Bare-Knuckle Brawler can easily be learned at this stage of the game, so we recomend learning this ability first before heading into the fight.

Don't Equip Elemental Weapons

The Picto-Amrita and Picto-Mona are immune to several elemental attacks. Avoid equipping weapons that have other elemental properties or you may leave your character unable to deal damage during the fight.

Paralyze Galahad

Galahad will be a pain due to his ability to defend the Picto-demons. To prevent this, paralyze Galahad. Lily, who will be helping out, can do this, but you can paralyze Galahad yourself using the Ranger's Shadowbind.

Defeat the Picto-Mona First!

Bravely Default II - Picto-Mona.png

During the start of the battle, you'll want to eliminate Picto-Mona first! You can easily focus her after paralyzing Galahad so make sure to go all out!

Leaving her alone can allow her to recover her and her allies' HP via White Wind.

All Enemies are Weak to Light

Try capturing some Petunias in the woods north of Wisland with Beastmaster. They can greatly help in taking down all the Picto-demons as well as Galahad.

A max level Black Mage can pierce elemental immunity

If you have a Black Mage that has a max level, they can do area damage against the Picto-demons as well as Galahad.

If you have a character specializing in magic, it is suggested to at least level the Black mage to level 12 first to allow them to deal damage to the enemies in this battle.
