Act 2 Part 2

December 19

Read the quest list on the computer terminal. Afterwards, select your party members, Millium will be a mandatory member for this Act. If you have recruited Becky from earlier, she lets you exchange items, this is similar to the pawn shop feature from the previous Cold Steel. At the start of the Act, it is advisable to sacrifice one Attack 2 and one Action 2 quartz together with 20 U-Materials to get the corresponding Ex-Orb for Valimar. This Act has 2 rather tough Mech battles and this way you can benefit from Stacking Ex Spheres with Valimar

Nightmare Tip
Note: Tri-colored Onigiri trick is no longer useful as it won't yield enough profit to fund your party on a consistent basis.

From now on spend mira and sepith to deck only those characters you intend to bring with you to the Act boss. Do so only for a party of 4 (i.e. don't bother with the supports unless you plan to use them) and switch only the supports around so they get Exp too. This way you'll minimize mira and sepith usage and still manage to update your equipment/quartz. Whenever the story forces you to use specific characters, simply swap armor/boots/quartz around. Try to save as much mira and sepith as possible until further notice.

Neihardt will probably be your toughest mech battle at this point. He doesn't have a 4 star unbalance rating, which prevents you from getting a guaranteed critical hit. Neihardt's mech does about 15000 to 17000 damage on its idle stance, and when it switches to the attack stance, it will do about 34000 to 37000 damage on you. This means you need to make sure you have the backup pilot to heal, or always make sure your EP is fairly high. You can also use the skill Morning Moon to evade attacks. When Neihardt's HP gets low, he will use another attack stance, where he points his sword at you. During this phase, he can use Warrior Strike on you, which does about 50000 to 60000 damage on you, it best to avoid it with Morning Moon or at least have the backup pilot with sufficient EP to heal you. It is highly recommended for you to use Sara as your backup pilot, she has an EX skill that can do damage and reduce the enemy speed and strength.

Accessory: Confuse protection. Alisa gets the True Gladiator Belt.
Links: Rean and Alisa.
This battle can be really rough if you don't have Confuse resistant accessories equipped. Defeat the smaller units first either by using your S-Craft or Arts. If you don't defeat them, they can heal the main boss and can also buff it. The main boss is very strong, however, it has poor resistant to status down effects allowing you cause AT Delay on it. If you have a group delaying it, it will probably prevent the boss from having a turn until a very long time. A good combo will be using Rean's Arc Slash and Alisa's Heaven's Gift combo. Other characters can attack or use arts. When the boss HP drops to 25%, it will use a skill that can restore a large percentage of its health and grant it insight, you can use your S-Craft during this phase to kill it before it can heal itself fully.

After you have defeated the boss, the game will give you the option to save and also allow you to change your Ex-Orb. Equip only Attack 1-2 and Action 1 Ex-Orbs. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT for N3 Run.

Always keep an eye on the turns. Usually, Boss will use attack pattern #4 then #3 when he crosses the half HP mark. The point is to be as slow as possible so then the Morning Moon lasts the most turns. Most of the boss' attack deals from 9000 damage on regular attacks, and it's stronger skills do about 27000 to 45000 damage on you. Always keep your CP up and have your EP fully charged if healing is required. If you have Sara on your party, her Thundering Roar can debuff the boss to a very weak state, making this boss fight very easy.
