Strengths and Weaknesses



Eligor is weak towards Elec and will be highly susceptible to Elec attacks. Exploit this weakness as much as you can!


Attacks Phys, Dark Instakill
Void Dark, Ailments
Resist Light, Phys
Support Beast Eye, Gathering, Rakukaja

Eligor utilizes a multi-target Phys attack and a single-target Dark instakill skill. It voids Dark skills, and Ailments.

Likewise, Eligor can resist Light skills and Phys attacks but is not totally immune to it. Eligor has Beast Eye which grants his party extra turns, Gathering which he uses to summon more allies to its party, and Rakukaja which increases its party's defense.

How to Beat Eligor

Eligor Battle Guide

Focus Attacks on Eligor

Focus your attacks on Eligor, instead of the summoned ally. Eligor will just keep summoning new allies as long as its still alive.

Use Elec on Eligor

eligor weakness

Eligo is weak towards Elec. Keep hitting him with Elec skills as much as possible to inflict more damage and secure more turns for your team.

Eligor Has Beast Eye

Eligor has Beast Eye which grants his party extra turns. Target his weakness to cut off its turns.

Buff Allies Before Attacks


Use a buff like Focus or Tarukaja before using a Phys attack. This allows you to maximize your Phys Attack's damage output in the short turns you get.

Use a buff like Makakaja before using a Magic skill. This allows you to maximize your Magic Attack's damage output in the short turns you get.

Dedicate At Least One Turn to Debuff


Use Tarunda or War Cry to lower its Phys/Magic Attacks. You will take less damage if you debuff its attacks.

Use Rakunda to lower Eligor’s defense, in order to make it more vulnerable to your attacks. Alternatively, you can use Fog Breath or Sukunda as these debuffs will decrease Eligor’s chance of dodging your attacks.

Bring Demons with Elec Attacks

As Eligor's weakness is Elec, bring Demons that have Lightning attacks to exploit its weakness. This way, you'll damage Eligor further and secure extra turns for your party.

Eligor Is Not Compeletly Immune to Phys Attacks

Phys Attack

While Eligor can resist Phys, it is not totally immune to it, so don't hesitate activating Phys attacks.

Use Magic Attacks Except For Dark and Ailments

Eligor can Void both Dark and Ailment skills, but be comfortable using other elemental Magic attacks, especially Elec as this is Eligor's weakness.

Have At Least One Dedicated Healer in Your Party

Summon demons that have Dia or Media so your party can restore HP as you move along battle. This will be ideal especially in situations wherein you have no available Recovery items on hand.

Equip Narukami Magatama

We recommend equipping Narukami Magatama in order to learn Elec attacks. Likewise, this magatama is useful in Nulling Yaka's Elec attacks in the 2nd encounter.
