|Recommended Level||14 or higher|
|None, but you can take advantage of its Fire attacks by arming yourself with Shiranui.|
Specter will rely mostly on both Fire skills and Phys skills. Its Fire skills are single-target attacks, and Demi-Fiend is more often than not the target.
You're going to want to take advantage of the fact that Specter utilizes Fire skills by equipping Shiranui. Demi-Fiend will be able to block the Fire attacks, effectively cutting off whatever turns the Specter has left.
Aside from utilizing Fire skills and Phys skills, Specter voids Force, Death, Mind, and Nerve attacks. Avoid using these skills at all cost!
|Best Demons to Use|
This battle is divided into two phases. Phase 1 will be against a group of Specters. Phase 2 will have a unified Specter after it activates Foul Union on the third turn in Phase 1.
The stats of the unified Specter will depend on how many Specters were left in the first phase of battle, so try to kill as many as you can in the first phase.
Use area-of-effect attacks that target multiple (or all) foes. You're going to want to inflict as much damage as you can on all the targets!
If you can't kill the gorup of Specter with only AOE attacks, you can alternate between them and high damage single-target attacks to effectively finish off targets.
Use Debuffs that will lower defenses or make the group of Specter receive more damage from your attacks.
The group of Specter will activate Foul Union, thereby forming one whole Specter boss. Watch out for this one on the third turn in Phase 1.
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.
Afflict Specter with Status either via Item or Skill in order to inflict extra damage. It's better to use attacks that have added Status effects such as Toxic Cloud.
If this fight drags on, Specter will summon back a group of other Specters to join its ranks in battle.
