Boss Tips

Utilize Characters That Can Survive on Their Own

Octopath Traveler 2 - Utilize Characters That Can Survive on Their Own

The Scourge of the Sea has the ability to take away your characters for several turns. Make sure to compose a party of characters that can survive even without a lot of support: characters that can heal themselves or characters that have high defenses.

Utilize Characters that Can Execute Quick Breaks

Aside from having a relatively high shield value, The Scourge of the Sea's charged attack swallows three of your characters leaving one to fend for themselves. Once the Scourge starts charging, breaking it before it can perform its attack is crucial. Bring characters that can easily break the boss. For instance, Temenos with a Scholar secondary job can significantly decrease shield values with his latent power and Elemental Barrage.

Bring a Scholar

The Scourge has several sets of weaknesses that it will constantly cycle through. Because breaking it at the right moment is crucial, knowing its weaknesses is pivotal as well. Bring a Scholar to the fight, and utilize its Analyze skill any time it changes weaknesses to always be ready to break it when the need arises.
