|Life Bottle x3|
|Friends Close, Enemies Closer|
Start by heading east and follow the red carpet until you can exit west, grabbing the Life Bottle x3 . Follow the carpet back and take the east exit you passed, following the carpet until the next split. Head east and follow the carpet until you reach a Rune Tunic and then go west, which leads back to the hall you ran through just a minute ago. Continue west to a save and check the tapestry for the First Flag discovery and Friends Close, Enemies Closer skit. Save and then continue west for a scene and a fight.
Victoria has a ton of HP and moves fast around the arena, making her difficult. She will likely go straight for your healer and with one extremely powerful spear attack take Cheria down, so make sure to use a Life Bottle to revive her. Next she usually goes for Sophie, who is a lot more agile and can handle herself pretty well.
Focus your attacks on Victoria’s weakness’ and watch out for getting stuck in her long combos, by side-stepping or blocking. Use the missed combos as an opportunity to attack her and try and get stuns in, to increase your own combos. If you get an Eleth Burst during the fight you can also unleash a Mystic Arte to finish Victoria off.
Heading northeast takes you back to the Turtlez, so go ahead and restock your Eleth if needed, and the head west from the Turtlez. Enter the third room you pass for a chest with 315 Unit(s) of Eleth and then continue west for a skit at the save called Slay the Usurper! . When you’re ready, head to the Throne Room.
Cedric’s weakness to Human and Slash attacks make Richard the strongest fighter you have against him. Swap to Richard and use his attacks Sword Rain: Alpha and Poor Form to spam massive damage on Cedric, making sure you keep him off Cheria. Since Cedric can pack a punch make sure to stay away from him whenever possible, using guard and side-stepping to reduce the damage of his attacks, and avoid him when he is in an Eleth Burst, because his Mystic Arte is deadly.
Enjoy the scenes that follow and when you have control again head west to reenter the Throne Room. After another scene, return to your party for an addition to the party and then head to the save for the A Touching Moment skit.
There isn’t much in Barona to do, that you haven’t already done, but make sure you check the Inn for requests and the Eye to Eye skit. You can now freely explore the areas around Barona, if you wish to complete any Enemy Book data. When you’re ready, head to Port Barona and make your way toward Lhant.
