BackgroundEdit

In Shining Force: The Legacy of Great Intention, Dark Dragon was summoned by Darksol so he could rule the land

StrategyEdit

Keep note of the following patterns in this battle:

  • All heads will not move.
  • All heads can do a physical attack. However, it is not that strong compared to the 4 spells that can do more damage and hit more characters in 1 turn.
  • The middle head will cast Demon Blaze (DemonBreath 2), a very powerful move that is 3 spaces long and targets 13 units. The side heads will only cast Demon Blaze if it is the only head left. Otherwise, the side heads will cast the other 3 spells at Level 2.
  • There are 2 Armed Skeleton Regenerators (unmovable) that are 3 squares away from the side heads. While these Armed Skeletons's attack won't do much damage (usually 1 against armored members), the minigun special attack can inflict enough to cause grief.

Avoid the middle head by being 4 squares away from it to avoid Demon Blaze. Reserve that head for last.

Split your team in half to deal with the Armed Skeletons, the 2 regenerators, and the 2 side heads. Minimize being 3 tiles away from the side heads due to Bolt 2 still being usable by any of the side heads. Defeat the Armed Skeletons and then block the regenerator tile.

Once Skeletons are destroyed and tiles are blocked, go after the side heads with your characters 1 square up close to minimize the use of spells, making it rely on the weaker attack. You can use ranged characters as well, but make sure they aren't cluttered with your other characters.

Once the 2 side heads are destroyed, go after the middle head. Same strategy as the other 2 heads to minimize the use of Demon Blaze.
