The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel - Nightmare Boss Guide

This is a video guide for ToCS, on the highest difficulty done in video format with commentary.

Boss #1 - Gargoyle / Iglute Garmr



The first boss is pretty much a slugfest.

To get Jusis in this fight you need to hold back Machias in their argument, and he joins instead and he has Rapid Thrust an Impede and Delay move which while Machias's lower def debuff is good, I think Jusis overall shines more in this fight.



Boss #2 - Minos Demon



The Minos Demon is pretty simple really, just keep Motivate and Resounding Beat active, give Rean the glasses you find in the schoolhouse to prevent blind, widdle down the enemy health now with your additional Link attacks and profit, he's also weakish to wind so Elliot casting Air Strike every now and again can help as well.



Boss #3 - Combat Shell



The First of many practical exams, this guy is a magical powerhouse and if you let him he will do Grand Press, Rean & Gaius can barely survive but Elliot will croak, do your usual buffs and pray Reans turn comes up while the thing is casting, Gaius's role is to keep its attention and counter him while doing Link Attacks with Rean. The Swordtail Emblem is good for extra Str & HP which is usually best on Rean or Laura throughout the game.



Boss #4 - Grunoja



This big Ape is very powerful, so you gotta keep careful here, anti-faint items, anything that causes burn, mass healing, at delay, is all very key for this fight, also Laura's debuffs.
