Amala Network Boss Fights



Specter wants all the Magatsuhi for itself. Focus on area of effect attacks to wipe out the army of Specters quickly before they can overwhelm you.

List of Boss Weaknesses
None, but you can take advantage of its Fire attacks by arming yourself with Shiranui.

This battle is generally divided into two phases. Phase 1 will be against a group of Specters. Use debuffs and wide area of effect attacks that target multiple (or all) foes. At the enemy's third turn, it will activate Foul Union, ushering the battle to Phase 2.

Phase 2 will be against a unified Specter. Its stats will depend on how many Specters were left in the first phase of battle.

Specter will utilize multi-target attacks so try to keep your party’s HP up to last in battle. Keep debuffing Specter and land med-high damage attacks to end this battle early. Take advantage of the opportunity of blocking its Fire attacks whenever presented and end its turns quickly!
