Cure Poisons

Queen Grashtrike

Queen Grashtrike will use poisons against you. Watch your status debuffs on the low right hand corner of the screen and use an Antidote as soon as possible!

Binds Characters

Queen Grashtrike

She will also entangle one of your characters with webbing and bind them. At this point, switch to another character to continue dealing damage.

Push Her Into Stagger

Queen Grashtrike

Your goal here will be to use tons of ice spells and other attacks to build up her bar and push her into stagger mode. At this point, your attacks will deal massive damage (we managed to get a crit of 1850, which is about 1/3rd of her HP.)

Hit Flametroopers With Fire

Flametroopers

Flametroopers are susceptible to fire damage, as well as attacks from behind that hit their exposed flame tank. Regular attacks won't be very effective against them, so you'll want to dodge behind them and use a fire attack to take them out!

Strike Sentry Launcher With Thunder

Thunder

The Sentry Launchers' weakness is electricity, so you should use spells like Thunder to take them out. Also you should note that their staggering gauge won't increase unless you strike them with non-elemental or Lightning attacks.

Guard Missiles From Sentry Launcher

The missiles deal devastating damage - guard through their attacks to reduce the damage.

Break Its Legs To Bring It Down

Legs

Crab Warden falls down when its legs are broken. When this happens, swap to a melee character to pump out massive damage on its core.

Slug Rays Will Appear

Slug Rays

At a certain point during the fight, several (4-5) Slug Rays will join the fight. Switch to them to take them out quickly, as they'll deal too much damage if you leave them up!

Avoid Surge

Surge

Crab Warden will wind up and put out a powerful electrical attack called Surge. When this happens, make sure your melee characters are away from the boss to avoid damage!

Step Away From Rails To Avoid Being Electrified

Tracks

The Crab Warden will also begin to infuse the rails around it with electricity. Anyone who steps on this will take damage, so make sure to watch your feet when you see the floor glowing!

Run Behind Blocks When Targeted

Target

Crab Warden will put a huge red targeting reticule marker on your character. At this point, take shelter behind any of the large crates in the battlefield to avoid taking damage.
