If you have fought Brynhildr before, you’ll know that Draw Fire + Retaliate is very potent. But Brynhildr is still easy without it, it has much lower health than previous versions. You still want to tank up against his attacks with some mitigation though.

Strategy
 

Pretty anticlimactic to be getting this for a  ++ boss to be honest. Anyway.

For a start you definitely want to get your defenses as high as you can, so stack all the buffs if possible (Sentinel’s Grimoire + Protectga + defensive Breakdowns). The only thing that will be painful is its Wave Cannons which can’t be mitigated, in which case you just have to heal through it. Having an RW with high regen isn’t a bad idea here.

When that’s done just use all your lightning and/or water abilities.

Keep him controlled with Slow and stacked Breakdowns while tanking your party up with the appropriate buffs and this fight should be yours. Make sure your abilities have enough hones to take him down.

Strategy
 Key notes:

  • You cannot target Barthandelus until both adornments are destroyed.
  • While adornments are up, every three turns Barthandelus will power up his adornments, granting them the usage of more powerful versions of elemental spells.
  • Unlike previous versions of Barthandelus, this one does not cast Doom after destroying both parts.
  • Barthandelus now also counters your actions with Dispel that affects all targets, and this Dispel also removes SG/SS2 (You might want to bring Reflect and bounce magic off your characters to play around this new DIspel mechanic, or use Retaliate for physical teams)
