|How to Beat Skadi||How to Fuse Skadi|
|Recommended Magatama||Geis Magatama|
|Recommended Level||70 or higher|
|None, but Magic attacks can go a long way|
Skadi does not have any elemental weakness, however, using but Magic attacks is useful for dealing damage.
|Attacks||Phys, Light, Force, Curse|
|Void||Light, Dark, Ailments|
|Support||Tarukaja, Rakukaja, Dekaja, Dekunda, Dragon Eye|
Skadi utilizes Phys, Light, Force, and Curse attacks so we highly recommend summoning demons that can block these types of attacks to cut off Skadi's turns.
Skadi absorbs Phys, so never use Phys attacks as the damage you'll deal will only turn into HP for Skadi. Likewise, she can void Light, Dark, and Ailment skills, don't use these types of attacks as you'll only be wasting your turn.
|Best Demons to Use|
|Black Rider||Qitian Dasheng||Garuda|
The quickest way to defeat Skadi is by using high damage Magic attacks except for Light, Dark, and Ailment skills. Summon your demons that have the highest Magic Stat and are not vulnerable to Phys, Light, Force, and Curse.
Skadi has Dekaja which negates all your party's buffs. It is fine to still buff yourself and your allies but don't overdo it or Skadi will simply cancel it out in a single turn.
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.
Skadi has Dekunda which negates your Debuffs on it. It is fine to debuff Skadi but you shouldn't overinvest or Skadi will simply cancel it all out in a single turn.
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.
