Gorgeous Gemstone IconGorgeous Gemstone
Heartthrob Launcher IconHeartthrob Launcher
Stop the Music! IconStop the Music!

Grus Cantus has an Affinity weakness to Stone Pins. Gorgeous Gemstone is a decent Stone Pinfor this battle, since it can be launched from a range, doesn't miss, and has a high chance of entombing enemies.

Heartthrob Launcher is great to have in this battle, so you can regain a bit of team HP as you deal damage. Stop the Music! also comes in handy due to its good range and damage dealt.

Tips & Strategies for Beating Grus Cantus

Strategy Checklist
CheckmarkJust avoid lasers during darkness

CheckmarkAttack the orb if a character gets trapped

CheckmarkTrigger Mashup to escape orb immediately

Avoid Lasers During Darkness

Grus Cantus sometimes shuts off the lights, making you unable to target it for a time. During this time, it's better to just avoid its lasers, as going near it to attack makes it difficult to avoid the quick laser shots.

Attack Orb if Character Gets Trapped

Avoid the orbs that immobilize your characters most of all, as getting caught leads you to be barraged with lasers. If your character gets caught in it, immediately start attacking the orb with another character in order to set them free.

Trigger Mashup to Immediately Escape Orb

You may also trigger a Mashup attack, if your Groove is over 100%, as a quick way to get the character out of the trap orb.
