Tips Edit

  • 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
