Difficulty of Defeating 
★★☆☆☆ (Easy)

This superboss “Sanguine Haunter” is one of the 10 Superbosses. It is relatively easy to beat.

The superboss uses the skill “Song of Souls” for recovery on the 1st, 11th, 22nd, and 33rd turns. This skill recovers the boss’s HP by about 2,000 HP per turn, so if you don’t deal enough damage, you’ll never be able to defeat it. In the above video, I use Fold Time before the boss can use the skill “Song of Souls” on the first turn. This forces the boss and us to end its turn and prevents it from using its skill until the 11th turn. Also, the boss’s skill “Haunt” is a nuisance. When hit by this skill, it may inflict sleep and confusion. Be careful, if you heal a fallen ally with Holy Water, they will wake up in a confused state. Mystic Stone Mask is effective against sleep. It is a good idea to have it in your possession by treasure hunting or opening treasure chests. Being cursed reduces your attack power, which will also reduce the amount of damage you deal to the boss. Therefore, you should prepare Cyril’s Bracers for all of your allies. They are sold in Crystal City. Get a Talisman for protection against confusion. You can get it by clearing the quest “Theodore’s Madness”.

This boss is Immortal. To deal effective damage, you should use the following three skills and spell “Way of Life”, “Cross Cut”, or “Southern Cross”. Other skills and spells will not deal much damage, so be prepared in advance. While the boss’s attacks are not as severe as those of other superbosses, the skill “Song of Souls” for recovery that heals HP every turn can make the battle drag on. Because the superboss has a low maximum HP relatively, it is better to challenge it in a short battle.



Song of Souls (Recovery) Recovers the boss’s HP by about 1,000-3,000 HP per turn.
Song of Souls Causes about 100 damage to all party members, and also causes LP damage. This attack reduces the LP of all party members by 1. Fallen party members lose 2 LP.
Slap Deals physical damage to one ally. Sometimes inflicts curse.
Infernal Claw Deals about 350 damage to one ally. Has a chance to fall down.
Haunt With a 350 damage blow, this attack can sleep and confuse your ally.
Spiritwrack Deals LP damage to one ally.
Boss-defeating skills and items

It is recommended to prepare the following spell and items before the battle.
Dragon’s Eye Glimmered (Grants immunity to fear, confusion, berserker, and charm)
Battle Skill (Southern Cross, Cross Cut, etc)
Spell (Healing Water, Holy Water, Wave of Life, etc)
Equipment that increases status effect resistance (Mystic Stone Mask, Cyril’s Bracers, Talisman, Shooting Star, etc.)



The superboss is in the middle of the Lake Malar. It will be easy to find it.
