※1 Daedala will only use this art when the target with the aggro ring is toppled.
※2 Daedala will only use this art when the target is far away from it.
※3 Daedala will activate its craze aura when its health is less than 30% of its total HP.
- Daedala will automatically use Laser if the battle members are too far from it, particularly at the beginning of the battle (due to its ridiculously high viewing distance). Earth cloak gems (60%) can be used to not only reduce Daedala's viewing distance, but to prevent it from using its Laser attack as the opening move.
- Daedala's attack power is very high (2400). Consider using Dunban as an agility tank or Reyn/Mechon Fiora as a damage tank. For Reyn/Mechon Fiora, guard shift can be used to defend against topple, daze, knockback, or blowdown attacks. Melia's buff elements will also make the battle much easier.
- Daedala has a range damage spike (1260). Equip spike defence gems (100%) to prevent battle members from absorbing spike damage. Long range attackers can avoid absorbing the spike damage.
- Daedala is one of the enemies that can use consecutive special attacks.
- Conquista X can be defended by using Monado Shield LV10 (Shulk), Last Stand (Reyn), Jaws of Death (Dunban), etc.
- Use aura removal arts such as Behave (Riki) to dispel Daedala's craze aura
Note: This enemy does not drop weapons or armour in silver chests.
