SO4 Help: Barachiel
« on: February 21, 2010, 10:40:02 PM »
Just got to this boss, and saw the Game Over screen twice X(

My stats are:
Edge: Lvl 18 Cardinon Sword

Reimi: Lvl 18 Eldorian Bow

Faize: Lvl 18 Guardian Rapier

Lymle: Lvl 17 Fire Wand

Really, he keeps on killing me with that stupid Dragon Tornado attack X3 even when I blindside him. If you have any tactics or advice, please post here cuz I reaaaally need help.

Two strategies to try:

Set Lymle's triggers to fire doggie. With her Fire wand, she should be getting the best damage of just about anybody with her fire dog attack. While the doggie is out, Lymle cannot be harmed so put that attack on all triggers to keep spamming it. Set Edge to Stay out of Trouble and just use his heal spell. Set Faize's rock attack in all slots, a wind monster like this will be seriously weak to it. Set Reimi to Stay out of Trouble as well.

Alternatively, control Reimi with Beat B and spam Rush combos with her and either Faize and his rock magic, or Lymle also on Beat B with fire doggie. Set Edge to Stay out of Trouble and just heal.

It seems that Barachiel's difficulty level has been jacked up. He seems way harder in this version than the 360 version. In that version, hardly anyone had trouble on him; now, we had 4 or 5 people stuck on him.  :o

Just wait until Sahariel...

But then again, the bosses get a tad bit easier later, or maybe it's just me.




Remember, Reimi is watching you... Don't get slapped!

For Barachiel, I was struggling to find where his core was for a while when I fought him. :P But then I eventually won, I just had Edge use blindside whenever he used Dragon Thunder or Deep Freeze, although I only did the latter whenever I'm in Rush Mode (and you still risk getting frozen), but I found that the most effective way.

Sahariel isn't too bad either... there were at least two of his attacks which left his core vulnerable and I just spam Special Arts at that moment.
