How Do I…Text Color

This is the final HTML Guide I’ll make before Summer Camp. Now how do you change text color if you don’t have an automatic text changer? Well this is the code for red!

<p style="color:red">This is red text</p>

And this is what it will look like.

This is red text

You can do many other colors and some weird colors require their HEX code because color names may vary or not be compatible. For instance Hot Pink.

<p style="color:hot pink">This is hot pink text</p>

And this what it will look like.

This is hot pink text

See it didn’t work but if you input the HEX code it will work just like that.

<p style="color:FF0066">This is hot pink text</p>

And this is what that will look like.

Difficulty(out of 10)

Strategy Guide

Depending on when you encounter this boss, this battle can range from easy to very challenging. All Nera, Sisi, and Gely’s shadows have all of the attributes of their counterpart. However, just like all the shadows, they are immune to physical attacks. The Shadow Master has low movement points but high range, which lets him stay in the backline and remain dangerous.

There are many ways to beat this battle. One of the good ways is using the Fool’s Plasma Solstice, which will deal 10,000+ damage on  Shadow Master, and Death’s Soul Ritual which will paralyze him.

Try to stay out of range of the shadow army on your first turn and match up the duels correctly on the second turn. Sisily’s shadow will die quickly from Nera or the High Priestess’s spells. She should be taken down first because of the high damage that she can dish out. Sisily or Emi can quickly defeat Nera’s shadow with their Yellow abilities.

Sisily, the Magician (or the Lovers) and Emi are your most important damage dealers in this battle; don’t let them get sniped off by Gely’s shadow. Overall, if you can utilize Soulburst abilities correctly in this battle, victory is as good as yours.

Tips for this battle:

All shadows are immune to physical damage. They also mimic the attributes of their counterparts and have double HP.

Consider using Plasma Solstice, since all the shadows are weak against White abilities. If you have the Lovers, Broken Heaven will rip through the shadows.

After this battle, Gelyan will learn Soul Pact. If you have been following an endurance build for Gelyan, Soul Pact can dish out lot more damage than your other abilities.

25th Battle: Marley and me!

Defeat Cerberus
Reward
None
Difficulty(out of 10)

Strategy Guide

Again, depending on when you fight Cerberus, this battle ranges from very hard to relatively easy. Cerberus’ attributes are pretty average compared to other bosses. However, Cerberus is exceptional in terms of speed. Not only does he have a high dodge rate and agility, his Light Speed Perk allows him to act twice per turn.

This map layout is totally in your favor. There is a single choke point which is perfect to set up for a gang up. Have Nera block this choke point, since she has the highest chance of survival with her high Red Natural Resistance and dodge rate. Use the Fool’s Castling to set up your battle field and swap Nera out of trouble if necessary.

The High Priestess is actually a good choice for this battle. You can use her to heal the tank and buff your characters. Her Blue Paradise also has a lasting effect on your party for the rest of the battle. Death is a solid choice as always; her Soul Ritual cannot fully paralyze Cerberus, but it can still prevent his Light Speed Perk to kick in for 2 turns.

Sisily’s Tornado Warp and Gelyan’s Soul Pact are good abilities to use against Cerberus. However, if Gelyan has been following a sniper build, Jelly Shot followed up with Trigger Happy or Armor Crusher are better choices.

Tips for this battle:

  • Use the choke point to maximum effect. Don’t let Cerberus rip through your back line.
  • Soul Ritual is not very effective against Cerberus. Cerberus under the effect of Soul Ritual can still act once per turn.

This battle is very easy. Esis has Grand Cosmos, which is the strongest spell available in this game. Coupled with her 40 magic attribute, she can finish Reciful off in one turn.

Never use her Grand Cosmos if Esis is on defensive position, since it won’t be strong enough to drain 80,000 HP and you still get your damage reflected.

Reward
  • None
Difficulty(out of 10)

Strategy Guide

This battle is harder than it looks. Firstly, you no longer have Emi, therefore your party is lacking mobility. Armor bandits have high HP and defense, which makes a very good shield for the bow bandits, who are dangerous as usual. Try to use magic abilities against armor bandits since physical damage is quite ineffective against them.

There are 2 choke points on this map that you can use. If Gely went for an endurance build, have him and Nera block the choke point. Sisi and the Magician can stand behind them to provide support fire. The High Priestess should stand next to the bow bandits to absorb damage, but she shouldn’t attack them. It is best to have her heal herself or other allies.

If Gely went for a sniper build, have him stand right behind the rock and snipe the bow bandits with Marksmanship Perk. The High Priestess can take his place and block the choke point.

Defeat the Gold Feeder
Reward
  • Gelyan gains a level
  • Gelyan learns a new ability: Armor Crusher
Difficulty(out of 10)

Strategy Guide

Welcome to another boss battle! Like other bosses, the Gold Feeder is very special and requires some unique tricks to be beaten. At first glance, he seems pretty much invincible with 999 defense and 999 resist. Most of your abilities will deal less than 10 damage to him (aside from the Magician who can reduce his resist to 450). He also has strong physical attacks and a magic attack that he uses to counter anyone who hit him from 2 tiles away.

Fighting the Gold Feeder the normal way won’t cut it. However, if you look carefully on the map, there is a floating gold heart right behind him. That is his source of power. If you destroy that gold heart he will lose all his Resist and Defense!

The battle map is divided in half by a big block of rock in the middle. Have Gelyan move closer to the Gold Feeder using the lower path to lure him. Have Nera, Sisily and the Tarots advancing using the upper path. Do not attack the Gold Feeder!

On the third turn, the High Priestess and Nera should be close enough to deliver hits to the Gold Heart. After it is gone, feel free to unleash all of your attacks on the Gold Feeder. With no resist and defense, he would go down like a rock.

Tips for this battle:

  • Do not attack the Gold Feeder unless the Gold Heart is gone.
  • Try to use a strong character to absorb the damage and lure the Gold Feeder while the others can sneak up to the Gold Heart.

21st Battle: Armored Ambush!

  • Nera learns a new ability: Crystal Ballad
Difficulty(out of 10)

Strategy Guide

This battle would be very easy if your party didn’t start with 1 HP! Still, don’t be too worried. The key to victory is using Soulburst abilities. Use the High Priestess’s Blue Paradise to recover all your character’s HP. You can also use the Magician’s Solar Wrath to soften the Armor Bandits, but it is optional.

Overall, apply the normal technique and you should win this battle without any problems.

Tips for this battle:

  • Use Soulburst abilities. They can turn the tide of a battle.
  • Gelyan’s Armor Crush ability is very useful against enemies that have high defense. Not only does this ability bypass defense, it deals 1% extra damage for each point of the target’s defense.

22nd Battle: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice…

Special Note

Nera gained a level after the previous battle, so use her attribute points. She also learned a new battle ability called Crystal Ballad which is extremely useful for the next battle.

Difficulty(out of 10)

Strategy Guide

This battle is straightforward and pretty easy. The Fool has superior range, damage and HP recovery, but he can’t move. Approach him carefully and utilize Nera’s new ability Crystal Ballad.

If you feel like cheating, use the High Priestess’s Grand Blessing to raise Nera’s Power to maximum (40) for a sure win. He can’t move so you can take as much time as you like to prepare for the battle.

Tips for this battle:

Nera’s Crystal Ballad ability is unique. The first spell deals Blue damage and decreases the target’s dodge rate by 500. The following three slashes are physical damage. Therefore, this ability deals both Blue and Black damage. Both magic and power improve the overall damage of this ability.

23rd Battle: Can’t take my eyes off of you!

  • Gely and his tarot gain a level
Difficulty(out of 10)

Strategy Guide

Another boss battle! Compared to all the fights that you have won, this one is the most challenging so far.

Let’s have a look at your enemies first. Saber has an extremely high dodge rate (700) which means he can reduce the hit rate of all abilities by 70%. Most of your normal abilities (First Dance, Trigger Happy etc.) will barely scratch him.  Not only that, he also has a healthy amount of HP and powerful aggressive battle abilities. His Poison Tail can cause a unit to lose 25% of its HP every turn. In addition to the damage he can do, his enemy faces certain defeat. He is also supported by 4 bandits who make things much more complicated.

You get to control Gelyan again, and now he can also conjure a new Tarot: The Fool. The Fool is your best bet to absorb the damage since he has high endurance and Black damage resistance. Since The Fool cannot move, he can use Castling to switch places with your characters to protect them.  You can use Castling in both the move and action phase.

Nera is your key to victory here. Her Crystal Ballad not only deals high amount of damage but also has a very high hit rate (150%). If you went for a magic build (Moon Waltz build) with Nera, she will have low HP and is very delicate; therefore, use a hit and run tactic with her. Have Nera attack and defeat the sword bandit then use the Fool’s Castling to get her out of the battle so Saber can’t attack her. Try to defeat both sword bandits on your second turn.

Your starting position is perfect to set up a wall. Have Gelyan conjure the Fool above him to complete a wall. The High Priestess can be used for blocking and healing. Also, the High Priestess’s Azure Wings is one of the few abilities that can really damage Saber, so use it whenever you have a chance. The best way to defeat Saber is using Nera and the High Priestess to attack him before he has a chance to do too much damage. Finish him off with Soulburst abilities if necessary.

Tips for this battle:

  • You don’t have to defeat all the bandits to win this battle.
  • Saber has a very high Dodge rate; therefore, only use abilities with a high hit rate against him (Crystal Ballad, Frozen Steps, Azure Wing etc.).
  • Sisily’s new ability, Electrify Kisses, can deal a massive amount of damage. However, the hit rate is normal (100%) so it is not good against Saber. Feel free to use it on the other enemies, however.

This battle is pretty easy. Despite having a very high dodge rate, leapers are very weak against Red abilities. Avoid them on the first turn and overwhelm the leapers on the second turn. Try to defeat at least one of them before they get to act. If both leapers are still alive after your second turn, you are in big trouble!

Tips for this battle:

  • Position yourself well on the first turn to avoid enemies.
  • Use focused fire to defeat weakened enemies before they can recover HP.

Strategy Guide

Finally you get to control Neraine and Gelyan again! Even though the enemies are the same as before, this battle is harder since Nera and Gely don’t have any Red abilities.

Nera’s Frozen Steps will always hit, however it is very weak against the leapers so it’s best not to use it. Instead, have her whack away with First Dance. Even though First Dance will miss often, the high damage and high number of hits will make up for it. Gelyan should always use the Jelly Shot + Trigger Happy  combo to deal maximum damage. Jelly Shot will make it much easier for Trigger Happy to hit.

Basic techniques apply (get in the first hit, focus attacks on one enemy at a time). Nera also has a decent dodge rate and you can always count on the leapers to miss her. With a good plan and small portion of luck, you should win this battle without too much trouble.

Tips for this battle:

The High Priestess should avoid the leapers unless you are trying to land the last hit. If you get unlucky, her attacks may miss and the leapers can leech HP from her.

Strategy Guide

Everyone is together for a big battle!

There are many ways to win this battle if you follow the basic strategy. One of the fastest ways is using the Magician’s Soulburst, Solar Wrath. Conjure the Magician and use Solar Wrath on the second turn. All enemies will be severely damaged and you can finish them off easily. Always focus on the leapers first since they can jump into your back line and kill weaker characters like Sisily or Emi.

If you choose to battle without using Soulburst, focus on the leapers on your second turn and have the High Priestess absorb the damage from the baby yetis. She may be defeated, but she will buy you enough time to finish off all other enemies.

Tips for this battle:

  • Use the tactical view mode to quickly review the battle field.
  • Use the wait command wisely. If you don’t want to move one character right away, use the wait command to move other characters first. For example, it is the Magician’s turn but you don’t have enough energy for his abilities. Wait with the Magician and move Sisily first, as she can generate energy for him so he can attack at the end of the turn.
  • Nera and the High Priestess are extremely useful against the baby yetis since they have high natural resistance against Blue abilities and have good physical damage output.

Defeat Trojan
Reward
Gelyan and Emi gain a level
Difficulty(out of 10)

Strategy Guide

This a challenging battle. Not only is Trojan very fast, but he also has a deadly physical attack and an even deadlier magic attack that hits everyone on the screen called Thunder Beam. Being a Yellow ability, Thunder Beam is brutal to Nera and the High Priestess. A few uses of Thunder Beam can wipe out your entire party!

Not all is lost, however. Emi is immune to Yellow abilities and she can pass her natural resistance to your other members with Lightning Aura. Emi should play a support role in this battle because her Yellow abilities do little to no damage to Trojan.

You should play aggressively but carefully without waiting for Trojan to attack you. He may decide to just stand and use Thunder Beam. The High Priestess is still useful with her Essence of Life Perk; however, she should also play a support role as the healer in this battle.

Sisily and the Magician will be your main source of damage. They can deal a huge amount of damage to Trojan. Nera and Gelyan are your secondary tankers. With the support of Emi and the High Priestess, they will survive long enough. Remember, if things get too dicey you can use the High Priestess’ Soulburst, Blue Paradise, to heal the whole party. Blue Paradise also gives all of your characters 3 extra points of magic!

Tips for this battle:

Emi’s Lightning Aura affects every friendly unit around her. Therefore, try to position your characters so that Emi can stand in the middle of them to maximize her ability.

Strategy Guide

This is an interesting battle, though not too difficult. Both sword bandits and leapers are melee flying units which means they are extremely deadly to the backline units. Sword bandits have extremely high agility so they can attack four times during combat!

The good news is that your portion of the map is narrow area and it is hard for them to surround you. Use the choke point to the maximum effect! Shower them with the Magician’s Meteor Strike ability and hurt them badly before they can retaliate. Nera’s Frozen Steps is very strong against the bandits since they are Red Natured, and so is the High Priestess’s Azure Wings.

Emi’s Yellow abilities are not particularly strong against them, but are reliable as finishing moves on weakened units.

Another way to win this battle is have your backline stand next to the wall with Nera, Gely and the High Priestess in front of them. Since there is no space behind you, the enemies have to take down your front line units first.

Tips for this battle:

  • The Magician’s Soulburst, Sun Wrath, is very useful in this battle. Use it as you see fit.

Strategy Guide

There are a few things to pay attention to in this battle.

Firstly, there is a leaper behind your party! You are facing a choice here. If Sisily has been following the magic build, she most likely won’t survive an attack from that leaper. In that case, do not conjure the Magician on your first turn. Use Sisily and Emi before the leaper kills one of your characters. If you are confident about Sisily’s endurance, conjure the Magician.

Another thing is that Gelyan’s starting position is in range of all three bandits! Again, if Gelyan has high endurance and has the Unshaken Heart Perk, he may be able to survive the assault. If that is the case, attack the bow bandit with Gelyan’s Trigger Happy  to severely damage it. Otherwise, move Gelyan back a few tiles, since you don’t want to lose any characters on your first turn.

The rest of the battle should now flow nicely. Use your best judgment.Tips for this battle:

  • The bow bandit is very deadly with his bow and has decent resist. If it is possible, get close to him very quickly with Nera or the High Priestess. They both have a high dodge rate, which is useful against bow attacks. Gelyan is also a good unit to take the bow bandit down if he within range.
  • From this point on, your character builds may have varied. There is not a precise way to beat any battles but if you stick to a good strategy you should be able to beat them regardless.

The bow bandits’ Arrow Barrage ability is extremely lethal. The key in this battle is aggressiveness. Get Nera and the High Priestess next to the bow bandits as soon as possible. If you have been raising Nera’s power, her First Dance ability will deal a lot of damage to them. The High Priestess has a very decent dodge rate and high HP Recovery so she can absorb quite a few hits from them.

If Gelyan has the Marksmanship Perk, he can hit the sword bandit on the first turn. Otherwise, move forward to absorb the hit. Sisily and the Magician should hang back and try to stay out of the range of the Arrow Barrage. The sword bandit will need two turns to reach Sisily, so make sure to defeat him before then.

Difficulty(out of 10)

Strategy Guide

This is one of the more challenging battles. One mistake could cost you the game.
Firstly, you should know how the Beholder’s arms behave. They can cast the Frozen Time spell and cause your characters to lose turns, targeting the units who are closest to them. You can use this behavior to your advantage by trying to place a single unit in front of your party so both of them will freeze only one unit.

The Beholder itself has a good range and strong magical attack. The best unit to absorb this damage is the Magician, since he has high resist and Red Natural Resistance. You should always finish off the Beholder’s arms before dealing with him.

All friendly units will lose 4 agility when fighting the Beholder; unless you have been raising only agility, Sisily and Gelyan can only use one ability per fight. Being Red Natured, the  Beholder will take high damage from Frozen Steps and Azure Wings.

Use Gelyan to snipe off one arm and have Nera and the High Priestess to kill the other. After both arms are down, the Beholder will be much easier to defeat.

Tips for this battle:

  • If possible, have one character leading your party to minimize the effect of Frozen Time.
  • Take down the arms first before fighting the Beholder.
