Next to Vinuskar, Daedalus stands as a fairly easy boss fight. This boss receives an enhancement when its HP falls on a critical level. His attacks and defense becomes augmented. He also receives an added boost to his attack chains.


Daedalus can use the magicks Haste and Darkra. It also has Smite of Rage, Pulsar Wave, Ice Break, and Tremor among its skills. Your party should especially watch out for Tremor, which attacks as an AoE. Ice Break and Tremor are Ice- and Earth-element attacks, respectively.

Daedalus can also use Tri-Attack, a move which picks out a single target for high damage.
