To believe Ramza saved the life of Marquis Elmdor during Chapter 1! Now,
Elmdor is Ramza's worst enemy, and he may have a clue to the location of
Alma. However, you'll have to survive three difficult battles to find
Just bring Celia or Lede's HP to critical levels, and this battle will
end. Don't worry about the demons too much. If Orlandu is in your party,
he can strike down either character almost single-handedly.
Use women for this battle - Celia and Lede's Allure special attack has
an almost perfect chance of charming any male character in the party.
Also, equip every character with Angel Rings. Celia and Lede can use
their Stop Bracelet attack to instantly kill any party member without
fail, so the Angel Rings will give the characters a certain amount of
protection. Also, equip one character with the Barette, so Elmdor's
Blood Suck commands will be nullified.
Elmdor is equipped with the Masamune, a full set of Genji hardware, and
has the Blade Grasp reaction ability. As a result, it'll be nearly
impossible to use physical attacks on him. Agrias is the best character
to use for this battle, since she can not be charmed by Celia/Lede, and
her Holy Sword abilities will always damage Elmdor. Be careful about
using Orlandu, since if Celia/Lede charms him, it'll be all over
quickly. Worker 8 can also dish out some serious damage on Elmdor.
Do not attack Celia or Lede. It's important that they be left alive.
(You'll see why if you kill them...)
This battle is Ramza's last chance to learn Ultima (see article 4.8.3).
Mustadio's Snipe skill will prove its usefulness in this battle against
the undead. Use Mustadio to get most of the undead out of the way, but
don't kill all of them. That's what Meliadoul's for.
Just keep attacking the Zodiac demon with your strongest attacks, and
it'll be all over. The previous battle really was more difficult.
Meliadoul will join the party after the conclusion of this battle.
