I can’t test this myself, because I’d have to start a complete new game, but in my experience, Vennie and Bartholio and Aalia could not on their own take out my party. My problem was Bernard and his magical attacks.
His physical reaction “Heh.” does a large amount of dark damage, and drains hp.
What if however, a character, Mardek for instance had…..dark jacket for 20% absorb (so essentially 120% resistance), shield of darkness (50%), m-50% dark reaction, resist dark passive skill (another 50%) AND rainbow aura (20% resistance). That makes 290% resistance to dark.
Now, you attack Bernard with a physical attack…..he uses his reaction and BOOM. He heals you, and therefore his drain….hurts him. And with this much resistance, it’d probably kill him. In one hit. You probably don’t even need 290%….
Forgive the pun but….heh.
Without him, the rest of the battle would be quite easy. What I’d like to know however is, would this strategy work? Is anyone near the saviours battle and willing to test this?
