The Ultraviolet ability deals damage to the target and aside from that, it also inflicts defense down for 2 turns leaving your character susceptible to some extra damage. The attack also reduces your character’s maximum HP. The maximum health debuff will last with your character for 4 turns.

The Corrupting Vortex ability is an AoE attack and quite an attack to look out for. It deals damage to all characters and inflicts poison for 2 turns. Aside from that, this attack also inflicts bonus damage based on the amount of HP lost by the character.

Siegfried (Transformed)

Once you’ve survived the first phase, then comes the real challenge of this boss fight, giving Siegfried a complete makeover with wings. In the second phase, Siegfried starts focusing his attacks on the character that has the lowest health. The abilities of Siegfried’s second phase are 

  • Unluck
  • Savage Thorns

Best Espers To Use Against Siegfried

Now don’t let Siegfried’s devastating abilities discourage you. We are here to guide you through each step on how to defeat this boss. Since Dislyte features turn-based combat. It expects players to think strategically and make the appropriate decisions for them to succeed. 

It might be tempting to equip your most powerful DPS characters to end the fight quickly because DPS characters inflict very high damage but we would recommend against that because this fight requires you to be smart, using support characters that can heal and apply buffs to your team is highly recommended.

Equipping your Espers with the best relics can also enhance their maximum capacity, consider reading our Dislyte Relic guide. The espers we would recommend using to fight Siegfried are

  • Mona
  • Gabrielle
  • Asenath
  • Ye Suhua
  • Your most upgraded DPS Esper (any is fine)

Before starting the Dislyte 12-8 stage, you will see that the game will recommend you a team formation based on the Espers you have acquired. We would suggest just ignoring that.

Best Strategy To Defeat Siegfried In Dislyte

Formation of the team
Team formation

Now you know everything there is to know about Siegfried and you have acquired the recommended Espers. Now it’s time for the actual boss fight. We would recommend being at least level 60 before you start the chapter 12-8 stage. First thing first, we would recommend you to play on manual instead of auto because you don’t want the game’s AI to use up your ability cooldowns.

After defeating the small enemies that fight you before Siegfried. You now need to use your support espers to buff your team, defense up, increase your AP, give invincibility to your DPS character, and use your 5th DPS character to inflict damage on Siegfried. Once it’s Siegfried’s turn to attack then the damage inflicted on your team should be negligible due to all the buffs on your team.

Once you have your buffs activated then focus on attacking. Now don’t waste your buff abilities, only use them when needed. Players should be able to breeze through the first phase of Siegfried. The real challenge of the Dislyte 12-8 stage exists in the second phase.

Siegfried Second phase

Now in this phase, he will mainly target the Espers that have the lowest HP but the strategy remains the same. You need to keep your buffs activated at all times otherwise Siegfried is going to hit hard. Use Asenaths Lotus Step ability as it will give your team the Lotus Mark.

The Lotus Mark makes even the strongest attacks of Siegfried do low damage. And don’t forget to heal your characters, and keep your team at maximum health whenever possible. Remember, Siegried has the Savage Thorns ability which can buff block your characters so don’t waste your buffs if you are buff blocked.

It will take some time to fully deplete Siegfried’s health so keep on with it and don’t abandon the strategy, especially if you feel like you can do some extra damage now to finish the fight early.
