So now I'm facing the boss and obviously, I'm clueless as to how to beat him. I'm around 89ish level for the entire cast and except the hero and 8, other characters have not changed their clothing.

How to beat the boss?

you need to USE (not just equip) the sword you can forge. Someone else will tell you it's name, cause I forgot. Something with light :)

The Super Sword of Light - the one you get from Yggdrasil. Not the basic Sword of Light or the Supreme Sword of Light, both of which you make yourself.

All 4 characters wearing 2 Catholicon Ring will really lessen your burden here.

Eight tanking.
Serena buffing Eight with Divine Intervention. Or healing.
Hero Attacking with Quadra to lower both arms hp then focus on body. Or healing.
Veronica Oomphle hero, Kaboomle to attack. Repel on Eight maybe.

Eight will die to cannon and magic attacks, so Serena's buff helps a lot.
Veronica can buff Repel on Eight, but the boss never seem to cast magic when done so, lol.
Perfection is an illusion; Aberrations are discoveries.

This works, but I think Veronica using Channel Anger and then focusing on using Kaboomle is better.

I'd rather have the Hero do his strongest single target attacks on the main body or healing if needed.
When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Too much sanity may be madness and maddest of all is to see life as it is and not as it should be.

Beat it without Sword of Light:

Start the battle with a Pep'd team and use Yggdragon's Blessing.
Have Veronica spam Magic Burst.
Stock all characters with at least 4 Elfin Elixer to replenish Veronica's MP after Magic Burst.
Use others characters strongest attacks and healing options and he should go down!

Your at a high enough level to beat it without the Sword of Light. Beat it without the Sword and it will feel so much more rewarding when he goes down.

I beat it without the sword of light either.

AoE the little dudes, focus on the arms 1 at a time, I would say do the canon arm first since that's where he shoots the little dudes from, then just smash him in the face until he regens them, rinse and repeat until he dies.

Buffs don't mean much since he likes to dispel, keep everyone topped off on hp and just do the damn thing.

What does the sword of light even do?
Go to work, send your kids to school, follow fashion, act normal, walk on the pavement, watch TV, save for old age, obey the law, repeat after me: I am free.

It removes his Aura, similar to how you had to remove it from Jasper.

No s***, I was actually wondering what the aura did since it kept giving me the message, but it didn't seem to do anything so I just ignored it.
