Melia is the best party leader for this challenge. With her buffs and area damaging abilities, she can easily dispatch enemy groups easily.

Recommended Members

Dunban Icon Dunban Reyn Icon Reyn

Dunban and Reyn's high damage output is great for this challenge as well. They also have Soaring Tempest and Warswing, which can deal heavy damage against clumped enemies.

Oh, Brother! (Free Mode) Tips and Strategies

Oh, Brother! General Tips

Oh Brother! S Rank Guide
Managing Melia's elements is the key to finishing this fight quickly. Melia's Burst state doesn't just increase her elemental's damage, it also enables her to use some of her best arts. Proper positioning is also great for maximizing your arts during a Chain Attack, so make sure to check where each character is positioned first before initiating one.

Wave 1 Enemies and Strategies

Wave 1.jpg

Enemy (quantity) Level
Mistol Igna (x1) 47
Barbaro Igna (x1) 47

Nothing hard about this fight, just summon bolt, then copy it, then unleash your other elements on them to end the wave.

Wave 2 Enemies and Strategies

Wave 2

Enemy (quantity) Level
Maleza Igna (x4) 43
Guard Igna (x3) 43

Start the fight, then target the Igna positioned in the center. Let Dunban and Reyn charge forward first to lure them all, then blast them with Wind and Blaze.

Wave 3 Enemies and Strategies

Wave 3

Enemy (quantity) Level
Fighter Igna (x1) 47
Otol Komar (x2) 47 & 49

Your party gauge should be full or near full again after dispatching the enemies from the 2nd wave.

Melia Mind Blast


Using Mind Blast during the Chain Attack works too, but it won't increase the multiplier for Soaring Tempest and War Swing.

Immediately use Mind Blast, then start a Chain Attack (if available), or focus the higher leveled Otol Komar. They can seal arts which can delay your time completion. Prevent it from happening at all cost.
