The final run of asterisk boss fights in Bravely Default is so awesome, I can’t help but talk about each one as I get through them. Minor spoilers but nothing about the plot so this should be fine unless you don’t want to know how the asterisk bosses are going to be grouped together.
The first match is against a trio that consists of the Thief, the Valkyrie, and the Merchant. The main strategy of the group is for the Merchant to keep buying BP drinks and fuel the powerful, BP dependent abilities of the other two.
On Easy mode, the Thief kept doing heavy damage with his Godspeed Strike while the Valkyrie alternated between the Crescent Moon group attack and the high damage Jump and High Jump.
These battles (along with the Chapter 7 ones) are even more awesome because there’s a short exchange between the bosses every time one of them gets KO’ed, and it seems that this changes based on who gets KO’ed and who is left standing.
It was a long battle because I was using Jobs that I haven’t mastered yet but now that I think about it, it should be easy to find a set up that will directly counter this strategy. Awesome match, can’t wait for the next one!
