How to Beat Albion

Use Phys and Almighty Attacks for AOE Damage

megidolaon

Albion and the Zoas have a combination of Elemental strengths and weaknesses, however, they cannot block Phys nor Almighty attacks, so we highly recommend using these types of attacks to finish them off more easily.

Drain Zoas MP

It is ideal to drain the Zoas' MP so they cannot revive Albion at any point. Use a skill like Mana Drain to drain enemies' MP.

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.

Debuff Enemies

Use Tarunda or War Cry to lower enemies' Phys/Magic Attacks. You will take less damage if you debuff their attacks. Use Rakunda to lower their defense, to make them more vulnerable to your attacks.

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

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

All Zoas in this fight utilize Magic attacks, so we highly recommend using a Magic Mirror or activating Makarakarn to Repel all foes' Magic attacks to cut off their turns.

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

Have At Least One Dedicated Healer in Your Party

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.
