Please note that the entire Ge.Ne.Sis Walkthrough Series is taken from the official Ge.Ne.Sis Strategy Guide. Thank you.

1st Battle: A new world? What is going on

Disclaimer:

All battles are designed to be able to be beaten in many ways. Therefore, the strategy guide for each battle will focus more on useful tips for that particular battle rather than step-by-step instructions on how to beat it. All spoilers are avoided whenever possible throughout this walkthrough, but there may be some that are unavoidable.

How to enter battle
Use arrow keys or A/S to move around to trigger an event which lead to this battle.
Player characters
Enemy
How to win
Defeat the Aquolf
Reward
  • The High Priestess Tarot
Difficulty(out of 10)

Strategy Guide

If you follow the tutorial, this battle should be very easy and almost impossible to lose. On your first turn, move left a few tiles and conjure the tarot High Priestess. It is important to not move too close to the monster and giving him the first attack. On your second turn, have the High Priestess attack the monster with her Dual Blade first and finish him up with Nera.

Tips for this battle:

  • Conjure the High Priestess to help you in battle.
  • The attacker can use 100% of their power as opposed to the defender who can only use 66%. It is always better to initiate combat than to get attacked.
  • If you can’t reach an enemy, try to stay out of his range so he has to waste a turn to come toward you.

2nd Battle: Beware of the Carrots!

Special Note:

None

How to enter battle

Player characters

How to win
Reach the other side of the battle field
Reward
None
Difficulty(out of 10)

Strategy Guide

This battle is not hard, but it is a little trickier than the first one. Your goal is to reach the right side of the battle field. There are several rabeans which stand in your way. It is possible, though not recommended, to defeat all of the enemies. Just focus on your goal!

Aside from rabean #5, all of the rabeans are on separated isles. Nera can’t reach them since she is a walker-type unit. You can however use the High Priestess to defeat them, but it is not necessary. Just go right as fast as you can and get rid of the only rabean that stands in your way.

Tips for this battle:

  • Rabeans are ranged units and can hit your characters from far away without the fear of retaliation. Like most ranged units, however, they have low defense and are easily defeated in melee combat.
  • Use the High Priestess to absorb some of the damage.
  • If necessary, use the High Priestess’ ability Grand Blessing to heal Nera.

3rd Battle: New friend? New foes?

Special Note:

Before you enter this battle, you will find a save point in vthe form of a floating hourglass. Use it to save your progress. Press UP or W to save the game at any save point.

How to win
Defeat all enemies.
Reward
  • New Character: Gelyan
  • Neraine and her Tarots gain a level
  • Neraine learns a new battle ability: Frozen Steps
Difficulty(out of 10)

Strategy Guide

A new character, Gelyan, is available in this battle. He is a ranged unit and can attack any enemies within a 4 tile range. The drawback is that he can’t move and attack on the same turn. Unlike normal ranged units, Gelyan has very good endurance and is capable of absorbing damage.

The rabeans are your first priority. They hide behind the rocks and trees so Nera won’t be able to reach them easily. It is best to conjure the High Priestess and use her to defeat the rabean at the top while having Gelyan defeat the rabean at the bottom.

The rest of this battle is conventional; if you follow the basic strategy you should be able to win it with no trouble.

Tips for this battle:

  • Sometime enemies are hard to see as they hide behind map objects like tree or rock. Use tactical view mode to spot them. Tactical view mode is also useful for big battles as it gives you a clear view of the strategic map.
  • Gelyan has 2 battle abilities: Jelly Shot and Trigger Happy. Trigger Happy deals extremely high damage on an enemy, however, its damage is very dependent on the enemy’s dodge rate. Since Jelly Shot always hits and will reduce the enemy’s dodge rate, using it first will improve Trigger Happy’s damage.

4th Battle: Fighting for your sweet honey!

Special Note:

Nera gained a level after the last battle and thus has 2 spare attribute points. Go to the Status Menu in the top-right corner to increase her attributes. What you decide to increase depends on your chosen build and how you want this character to perform. Go to the Main Character Data section of this guide for more information about building your characters.

It is recommended to put 2 points in Power right away to open the Power Overwhelming Perk, which will further increase Nera’s Power to 10! To equip a Perk, go to the Perk Menu.

How to enter battle
Keep going right until you run into the bears. Talk to them. Go right again until you see a big seed on the ground. Talk to the seed and go back to the bears to trigger an event that leads to this battle.
Player characters
Enemy
How to win
Defeat all the hobears
Reward
  • A jar of honey
Difficulty(out of 10)

Strategy Guide

Hobears are extremely resistant to physical damage (Nera’s First Dance, Gely’s Trigger Happy, etc.); therefore, you should avoid using Black abilities in this battle. Hobears also have very low movement points and will take a few turns to reach you.

Set up your defense at the choke point with Nera and the High Priestess with Gely right behind them picking away with his Jelly Shot. When the hobears finally get close, you should have enough energy stored up to use Frozen Steps and Azure Wings. Unleash all of your magic on them and they should go down easily.

Tips for this battle:

  • Magical damage (Blue, Yellow, Red, and White abilities) is very effective against enemies with high physical defense.

5th Battle: What happens when you grow a bean?

Special Note:

Go back to the save point to save your game before entering this battle.

How to enter battle
After beating the hobears, you will get a jar of honey. Bring it to the big bean seed to trigger an event which lead to this boss battle.
Player characters
Enemy
How to win
Defeat the Queen Bean
Reward
  • Gelyan gains a level
Difficulty(out of 10)

Strategy Guide

This is a boss battle, but it is not hard if you know what you are up against. Queen Bean has extremely high range (5 tiles), but she can’t move. As long as you are out of her range, you will be fine.

On your first few turns, have Nera and the High Priestess stay out of Queen Bean’s range and stockpile energy. Likewise, use Gelyan to pick away at the advancing rabeans. After all the rabeans are eliminated, close in with the High Priestess and Nera. If you have the Power Overwhelming Perk, Nera will deal around 1000 damage with her First Dance ability!

Queen Bean may attempt to heal herself when her HP gets low, but with 3 characters assaulting her, you should be able to out-damage her healing.

Tips for this battle:

  • Stay out of the range of the enemies and use high movement characters to close in against ranged units.
  • Use Perks to argument your characters.
