Boss: Dispater x2
These two enemies are notorious for primarily targeting your spellcasters, especially your healers. For the first part of the battle, concentrate on one target. Setting your strategy to have your teammates attack the leader's target will make it easier for you to focus fire on one target at a time. Later in the battle, they'll be using a very wide AOE attack, as well as some mid-range, medium-sized AOEs. Your healers will be smart enough to move away from danger and they'll be more effective if you'll prioritize keeping them alive using recovery items. If you have upgraded Cheria's healing artes and supported it with healing-boosting gems and equipment, then you won't have that much trouble keeping the team afloat throughout the entire battle.
Since the enemies are flying, it will be a challenge for some of your combos to hit or connect. Compensate by using Attack and Burst artes in tandem, especially if this will stop them on their tracks.
Defeating these enemies within 60 seconds will unlock a corresponding trophy.
