|A Near Miss?|
|Asbel: Friend to the End | Sophie: Conflicted at Heart|
After the scenes you’ll gain Asbel’s Friend to the End and Sophie’s Conflicted at Heart titles. Head to the save point for the A Near Miss? skit and make sure to save, as heading any further north and you get a scene that leads to the major Richard fight.
Boss: Richard (Nova)
This fight should be easier than it was at Lhant, purely because you should have gained some considerable levels while Richard is only slightly more powerful.
As with the previous iteration of Richard, the quickest way to end this is to break his Nova Barrier and combo lock him with some easy 50-hit combos on him. Skills like Asbel’s Infernal Torrent and Plasma Shock will strike Richard’s weakness and deal massive damage when combined with a combo multiplier.
When Richard goes on the offensive you’ll want to guard and give yourself some time to heal before you begin another chain, but make sure to avoid him during his Eleth Burst so that you are not hit with Bloody Rose.
