Clotho Strengths and Weaknesses

Weaknesses

Weaknesses
None, but Phys and Magic attacks can go a long way.

Clotho does not have any elemental weakness, however, using Phys and Magic attacks is useful for dealing damage.

Strengths

Attacks Light, Charm/Mind
Void Light, Dark, Ailments
Support Dia, Diarama, Mediarama

Clotho uses Light and Charm skills, so we suggest not bringing along demons that are weak to these types of attacks. Likewise, Clotho can void Light, Dark, and Ailment skills, so never use these types of attacks on her as you'll only be wasting your turns.

Clotho has Dia, Diarama, and Mediarama to heal herself and her party up. However, do not be discouraged as she only has a limited number of turns, just keep dealing damage to take her out immediately.

Lachesis does not have any elemental attacks and is a full Support build. She will mainly use her Support skills to enhance her sisters' attacks and protect her party from your attacks.

She also voids Light, Dark, and Ailment skills, so never use these types of attacks on her as you'll only be wasting your turns.

Lachesis has an arsenal of Support skills including Tetrakarn which blocks your party's Phys attacks, Makarakarn which blocks your party's Magic attacks, Tarukaja, Makakaja, Rakunda and Rakukaja.

Atropos is the sisters' main damage dealer, and mainly utilizes both single-target and multi-target Fire, Ice, Elec, and Force attacks, so we highly recommend bringing along demons that can block any of these types of attacks. Likewise, Atropos voids Light, Dark, and Ailment skills, so don't use these types of attacks as you'll only be wasting your turn.

How to Beat Moirae Sisters

Prioritize Killing Clotho First

clotho media

Clotho should be your main target at the beginning of the fight. With her still alive, the Moirae Sisters will just keep receiving heals. So, take Clotho out first to prevent prolonging this battle.

Kill Atropos After Clotho

The next priority target after finishing off Clotho is Atropos. The battle will go on smoother if you cut off the Moirae Sisters' damage dealer.

Ignore Lachesis, let her buff up her sister—you can always block Atropos' attacks with items or abilities. You will receive little to no damage once you kill Atropos and are left with Lachesis at the end.

Use a Magic Mirror or Makarakarn to Repel All Foes' Magic Attacks

Clotho and Atropos utilize Magic attacks, so we highly recommend using a Magic Mirror or activating Makarakarn to Repel their Magic attacks to cut off their turns and, at the same time, reflecting the damage onto them.

You may obtain a Magic Mirror in Rag's Jewelry.

No Resistance Against Phys Attacks

The Moirae Sisters have no resistance against Phys Attacks, so don't hesitate to use these types of attacks on them.

No Resistance Against Magic Attacks Except for Light, Dark, and Ailments

Every Moirae Sister voids Light, Dark, and Ailments. However, be comfortable using other elemental Magic attacks as they cannot block or counter these.

Dedicate a Turn to Raise Your Party's Defense / Evasion Rate Against Clotho's Light Instakill

Clotho utilizes Mahama. If you cannot block Light nor have demons that can, we highly suggest always dedicating a turn to raise your party's defense or evasion rate, especially against Mahama to avert the chances of an Instakill happening. Clotho could target anyone in your party, and if the unlucky ally does not block Light, they will surely die.

Debuff Your Enemies

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 its defense, to make it more vulnerable to your attacks.

Alternatively, you can use Fog Breath or Sukunda as these debuffs will decrease its chance of dodging your attacks.

Buff Your 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.

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 the battle. This will be ideal especially in situations wherein you have no available Recovery items on hand.
