Tips & Strategies for Beating Grus Cantus Alpha

Strategy Checklist
CheckmarkAvoid lasers during darkness

CheckmarkAttack orb if a character gets trapped

CheckmarkTrigger mash-up to immediately escape orb

Avoid Lasers During Darkness

Grus Cantus Alpha can't be targeted when it's dark. Trying to get close to her can result to damage so it's better to avoid her lasers during this time.

Attack Orb if a Character Gets Trapped

Grus Cantus Alpha's orbs can trap, immobilize, and incapacitate some of your characters. Free that character by attacking the orb directly to avoid damage from a barrage of lasers. Be sure to switch your target from Grus Cantus Alpha to the orb to free your character.

Trigger Mash-up to Immediately Escape Orb

You can also trigger a mash-up attack to escape or break a party member free from an orb. Only do this as a last resort (it's always better to save up your Groove for a Killer Remix), such as when your Pins are in cooldown or when you can't destroy the orb in time before the lasers start zapping your friend helplessly.
