List of Contents
|Recommended Magatama||Gaea, Vimana, or Kamurogi|
|Recommended Level||60 or higher|
|None, but Phys Attacks can go a long way.|
Specter does not have any elemental weakness, however, using Phys attacks is useful for dealing damage.
|Void||Light, Dark, Nerve, Mind, Last Resort|
Specter utilizes Last Resort, a heavy Almighty attack that cannot be blocked or dodged. Specter reflects all Magic attacks, as well as, void Light, Dark, Nerve, Mind skills, and Last Resort, so never use these types of attacks as you'll only be wasting your turn.
In that sense, we highly recommend summoning your demons that have the highest Str and Vit stats, to survive Last Resort and to deal the most damage you can with Phys attacks.
Specter also has two support skills including Gathering which it uses to replicate 5 more Specters only at the start of battle and 1 more Specter as the battle progresses, and Dekaja which cancels out all debuffs in one turn.
|Best Demons to Use|
|Qitian Dasheng||Beidou Xingjun||Fuu-Ki|
As much as possible, you want to keep this fight short to avoid getting hit with Last Resort. Use multi-target Phys attacks to damage all Specters in one go.
We highly recommend summoning your demons that have the highest Str and Vit stats, to survive Last Resort and to deal the most damage you can with Phys attacks, as you cannot block or dodge Last Resort nor can you use Magic attacks on Specter.
Specter has Dekaja which cancels out all debuffs in one turn. It is fine to debuff Specter, but don't overinvest!
Summon demons that have Dia, Media, or the skill's other variants, 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.
