@Raes said in Ep4 Substory Duel:
I think my issue with the fight is that its poorly balanced depending on your class / setup. I finally beat it as Summoner / Fighter but I cant fathom how like... tech / force would possibly be able to do this fight. Even if you time your dodges on those classes and use the 'shortened dodge ring'; she attacks with such frequency in phase 2 that ~7 minutes wouldnt be long enough to actually take her down even if you didnt make any mistakes.
I actually got S-Rank today on FoTe with my shitty gear (2:39), it's not too hard once you learn how to dodge her with simple movement and the defence techniques ring. My trees are also full hybrid, so no extra attack from TEC Up or Photon Flare.
Generally, double jumping and moving to the side with aerial cast movement is enough to dodge the majority of attacks, meaning you can keep on the offense while still doing damage, and timing your tech charges does the same thing.
I didn't record the run, but I could do another one if you'd like to see it, but there's probably a video on YouTube already.
As for Techter, the strategy is the same as Force, you just play TeFo which is the best setup for this fight.
