For the first phase, Jellal
will take the first turn and hit your entire party with Jiu Leixing. You’ll also get a quick tip about activating Awakening
to react during an enemy’s attack and prevent incoming damage while also making you immune to enemy attacks while Awakened. The only downside for Awakening in this manner is that the special status will be 2 turns shorter than usual - but when used at the right time, can be a life-saver.
During your turn, heal up your party using Lucy
’s healing magic then have Natsu
lay down the offense. If you have a full Fairy Gauge, start the battle with a Magic Chain
, which should be powerful enough to at least eliminate Ultear and heavily damage Jellal
. While you can use Awakening
to help you deal more damage and survive longer, you can also opt to use Follow Up attacks instead, especially if your characters can deal considerable damage per attack. After depleting both of their HP, the battle will move on to the second phase.
At the start of the second phase, Meredy will cast Maguilty Sense on both Jellal
and Ultear, boosting their ATK and DEF. They get repositioned as well, making it harder to hit them using the same attack. You may want to use Gray
’s support magic that boosts your party’s DEF to offset the ATK Buff
of the opponents. Prioritize focusing-fire on Ultear first since she’s the squisher target with less HP. Other than that, it will help get rid of her to prevent her from using her healing magic and Rosenkrone spell which is quite potent against Natsu
. Natsu will still be your main damage-dealer in this battle since his fire attacks are effective against Jellal and Ultear.
For the final phase, Ultear will retreat and Jellal
will use an ultimate magic called Sema which will result in an instant defeat if he’s not defeated within three turns. At this point, you should have a full Fairy Gauge in which you should not hesitate to activate. If you still fail to defeat Jellal at this point, I suggest taking on repeatable quests and grind to increase your levels further.
