Specter does not have any elemental weakness, however, using Phys attacks is useful for dealing damage.
|Void||All Magic Elements, Light, Dark, Nerve, Mind, Last Resort (Phys)|
Specter utilizes both single-target and multi-target Almighty attacks in this battle. Almighty attacks cannot be blocked or countered, but you can dodge by raising your party's Evasion rate.
Specter voids all elemental Magic attacks, so use Phys attacks in this battle at all times. It also has two Support skills including Gathering which Specter only uses at the start of the battle to generate 5 more of it, and Dekunda which cancels all your debuffs on the enemy.
|Best Demons to Use|
Since Specter blocks any Magic attack, Phys attacks will be your best friend in this battle. Use multi-target Phys attack to wipe out all the enemies quicker.
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.
While it is impossible to block or counter Almighty attacks, you may be able to dodge them by raising your evasion rate.
Specter has Dekunda which negates your Debuffs on it. It is fine to debuff Specter but you shouldn't overinvest or it will simply cancel out all debuffs in a single turn.
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.
Summon demons that have Dia or Media or other variations of the skill, 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.
