– Strange Folk & What Became of Bryce –

Items Checklist
Salisbury Steak x3

Head to the Barona Inn and check upstairs to meet Joe, again, for a scene and a Salisbury Steak x3 .

Meet up with Fiery Joe and his punishing big sister, Annie, a professional chef.

Head to Orlen Woods, where the normal enemies have been replaced with those of the castle. If you want to finish off the Soul Orb gathering from Barona Castle you can take the time to farm here, but your objective is to head to where you fought the Nova Wolf.

Boss: Bryce (2)

Bryce can pose a serious threat due to an ability that can one-shot your characters and another that does serious damage. I suggest you put Cheria and Sophie in your party for mass healing and take advantage of guarding. It is also a good idea to have a Curry in your Eleth Mixer, the Books of Satiation, and the Book of Cuisine for two free revives.

You will spend most of this battle making sure your AI characters stay alive and get out of range of Bryce’s one-shot skill, indicated by a long charge up with a red aura. Make sure you know which D-Pad directions leads to each character and as soon as you see the red aura switch to move them out of the way. You may also want to switch to an AI taking heavy damage and move them away until they get healed.

Bryce is fast, using a lot of slash attacks that can tear through your health (left). Watch out for his one-hit ability that will kill anyone left in its wake (right).

For reference: I used Asbel, Malik, Cheria, and Sophie all at about level 40 and had to use a few Life Bottles when I missed getting the AI from the instant death attacks.

You get the Windor Crest and Bryce’s Claws for winning and can now turn the Windor Crest in to Barona’s Inn Request.
