Tips[edit | edit source]
- See testimonials and discussions.
- Use water, wind, earth, or non-elemental attacks.
- Since most magic attacks are elemental, the Physical Route may be easier.
- Sleep Abuse route
- Chimera can be put to sleep once. It becomes immune to sleep after the first application.
- It will sleep for 3 turns, allowing you to attack for 4 turns. Make sure to attack first before sleeping it.
- Once you put Demon Chimera to sleep, attack it with:
- Physical attacks will wake it up, but you can still use this strategy to give you one extra turn (attack > sleep > attack).
- Toxic Rain will pretty much guarantees sleep to proc.
- Physical Cover Tank route
- Bring a physical cover tank, 1 or 2 damage dealers and the rest as support.
- Allows you to better deal with the thresholds, as Chimera casts a heavy hitting AoE Physical skill (Beast's Seal) and simplifies dealing with Chimera Pupil, as it’s a Physical Type Attack.
- Your team will have to handle Blaze, Icestorm and Thunderbolt by themselves, so you need to raise the HP/SPR and fire, ice, and lightning resistance of the whole team
- Your tank will also take heavy damage from Chimera Pupil, as it deals magic damage
- Magic Cover Tank route
- Bring a magic cover tank, 1 or 2 damage dealers and the rest as support
- A properly geared magic tank (ideally with 100% fire/ice/lightning resistances) is able to ward off almost all incoming magic damage on this trial, as all but one ability have an element
- However, your team will have to handle all the physical damage, including Beast’s Seal on thresholds.
- Beast's Seal can be dodged with AoE mirage (e.g. Sara's Retreat Command or Illusionist Nichol's LB)
- Threshold route
- The Chimera's threshold actions are predictable and relatively weak: as long as you can survive and heal up after Beast's Seal and have Dispel for Beast's Roar (or can survive Beast's Seal despite the buffs) you're in the clear.
- This requires you to be able to do enough damage to break a threshold (more than 30%) every turn.
- Beast's Seal can be dodged with an AoE mirage or a mirage/evading physical cover tank, so if you can break a threshold every turn and have one you won't take any damage at all. This means Illusionist Nichol can trivialize this fight.
- To do this with 4 you'll probably want two chainers using water, wind or earth; a buffer like Soleil, Maritime Strategist Nichol or a Bard; and a healer or cover tank. You'll want a dispel and, depending on your damage output, you'll likely need a defense/spirit break as well. Neither should be on your damage dealers as you'll need to use both every turn.
- If you are using a bard you may be able to forgo a healer, but be aware that the Chimera does use status ailments during any non threshold turns you have to endure such as if you need to set up elemental enchants.
