A topple lock party. Shulk is the most important character due to his Monado Shield and Enchant arts.
Ancient Daedala will detect you from a distance. If Glorious Future is learned, immediately use Shulk's Armour to survive the attack. Hurry near Daedala and quickly fill your party gauge. Your goal is to Topple Lock Ancient Daedala so building up the party gauge (and Fiora's tension if she's in the party) is the main goal. Once Daedala has been toppled, never let up your assault and keep on using Topple Skills whenever a Chain Attack is available.
All Super Bosses drop the Veritas Glyph. This is the only item that can be traded for a Love Source.
The only source of Night Vision Cylinders. Make sure to collect lots of Night Vision Cylinders before proceeding against the other super bosses.
If you include Sharla in your team, make sure to get Heat Sink Cylinders from Daedala. This gem allows Sharla to use arts for a longer amount of time and keep everyone's HP up.
