I can’t beat her on my Etoile. I don’t have the reflexes so I keep getting hit and I can’t heal. I don’t want to cheese it, I want to win and feel like I earned it.
You should only need reflexes while you’re learning the fight, nearly everyone of her attacks has a very distinctive audio cue, which gives you ample time to react, it’s just a case of learning which attack comes with each audio cue. If you’re playing with Japanese audio switch it to English, makes it a lot easier to learn the audio cues if you don’t speak Japanese. The only attack that doesn’t have an audio cue is when she does the dash backwards and forward across the arena, which she does a very noticeable bow before hand. Each attack has its own animation as well, so if you’re having trouble seeing them turn your damage numbers off from the menu,makes it far easier to see what she is doing.
Great advice, thanks! I don’t play with English audio, I actually listen for Shiva’s attack in Lament UQ by the sound of one word but Phaleg is just too overwhelming to do that. I’ll switch the language and practice, then. If I can beat Masq then maybe I can beat her. I hope...
I lasted about twenty seconds and then panicked because she cut off my ability to use mates to heal and my poor Etoile was helpless. I only survived by being a coward. Feels bad.
