Cyclops Strategy

The Ahrimans are weak to Light

Indiscriminate Rage

The Ahrimans are weak to Light but all magic attacks are countered with Siphon. Instead of using magic attacks, use Elemental Supplement on a Swordmaster with Indiscriminate Rage to quickly eliminate them all. Using the Solid Stance will further speed up this process.

Start battle in critical HP

Since Cyclops counters Shieldcraft moves, the only way to have your Shieldmaster protect your allies is to set their HP to critical status.

You can knock your allies down from random encounters on the map before initiating the battle against Cyclops.

Slugger doesn't work 100% of the time

Cyclops' Slugger move gimmick isn't a guaranteed to knock your party members out of battle. However, it is a pesky move so always having Reraise to survive Cyclops' attacks if your Shieldmaster gets blown off the battlefield.

Knocked Off allies return after a few turns have passed

Blown Off Ally Returns

There's no need to assume that an ally that gets knocked off is permanently out of battle. They'll come jumping back into the fray after a few turns have passed so if one of your characters do get knocked off, stand your ground and try to survive the Cyclops' onslaught.

End the battle fast

End the Battle Fast

Since we risk having our formation broken by having the Shieldmaster taken out of battle, ending the battle fast by focusing on the offensive is highly suggested.

Make sure to optimize your damage to deal as much damage possible to Cyclops.
