How to Beat Edea

Preparation

GF Carbuncle, GF command, and Draw command.

Moveset

Edea will use tier 3 elemental spells every turn, unless there is a positive buff from your team. If a positive buff is cast on your team, Edea has a high chance to use Dispel to remove the buffs. This, or she will just use Astral Punch which is a weak single target attack.

Strategy

Use Carbuncle to cast Reflect on the whole team. Unleash attacks and keep whittling down Edea's HP. You can also wait or damage Squall intentionally to end the fight but you won't recieve battle rewards.

Double, Life, and Cura

These are valuable spells, especially Double, so stock up on these spells via Draw if possible.
