Begin this battle by activating Crazy Hunt to increase Critical Hit chance and then use one S-Craft and any Crafts with a high break rating to put him in the Break Status.

In order to complete this quest you’ll need to win a few battles, first of which is with the class only. Begin with a quick Battle Scope then use Sledgehammer along with any high break rating crafts on him to quickly put him into the break status. Once you’ve achieved this, activate Wind Blade and then continue using normal attacks to put a delay on his turn. Continue this cycle until Wallace reaches 10% HP. If he manages to charge up an attack you’ll want to use Ebon Crest to reflect all incoming attacks for four rounds.

Once you’ve beaten Wallace with the class, you’ll face him again in a duel with Rean. This time around you’ll need to get him down to 50% HP. Activate Spirit Unification along with Sledgehammer, then use Fatal Helix to put him into the Break Status. Switch your Brave Order over to Crazy Hunt and then continue using Fatal Crimson Slash until you’ve gotten him down to 50% HP. If you go below 50% HP, make sure to heal up as his attacks can easily two shot you.
