Return Pals Back In Their Pal Sphere When It Uses Electric Attacks

Marcus is a formidable opponent that primarily uses Fire-type attacks but is also capable of using Electric-type skills that can counter Pals with Water elements. Watch for signs of an impending Electric-type attack and recall any Pals vulnerable to it if there's a likelihood of being hit.

▼Countermeasure For Electric Types

Assault Rifle Is The Best Weapon To Use

Marcus is the second strongest enemy among the tower bosses and is additionally challenging to hit because he is flying with his Pal. It is recommended to use an Assault Rifle, to easily hit targets with precise attacks and high damage firepower.

When using a Pump-action Shotgun, it is advisable to approach Marcus while gliding with Galeclaw and shooting. Creating a Hyper Shield makes it considerably more difficult to be knocked down, so if you find yourself taking too much damage and your HP is not holding up, be sure to craft one.

Marcus And Faleris Strategy

  2. Attack from behind when not being targeted.
  3. It will charge forward after shooting tornadoes.
  4. Avoid the electric shocks and fire attack by moving sideways.
  5. Watch out and avoid the ranged electric attacks.
  6. Keep eye on the ground to avoid the erupting fire attacks.
  7. Attack that spits fire from the mouth is quick.
  8. The fireball attack is dangerous as it tracks its target.
  9. You can also change the damage multiplier.

Attack Marcus While Riding

Image of Marcus riding Faleris

While riding Faleris, Marcus is himself is the weak point. When you land an attack on Marcus, the damage is higher than usual, so always target Marcus during the battle.

Attack From Behind When Not Being Targeted

When not targeted, attack from behind.

Since there is only a 10-Minute time limit, you need to initiate attacks on your own as well. While Marcus is targeting your Pal, attack from behind with weapons to inflict additional damage. Conversely, when you are being targeted, focus on dodging the attacks rather than attacking.

[Warning] It Will Charge Forward After Shooting Tornadoes

When it uses Phoenix Flare, after shooting the tornadoes and rotating its body, it will charge towards you. Roll sideways to avoid its charging attack.

List of Active Skills & Pals That Learn Them

Avoid The Electric Shocks And Fire By Moving Sideways

The lightning attack possesses the capability to pierce through pillars, so avoid it by moving sideways. Adding Galeclaw to the party and using it as a glider makes it easier to dodge. You can also avoid the flamethrower in the same way.

Watch Out And Avoid The Ranged Electric Attacks

A circle shaped red light will appear on the ground, signaling an incoming attack. Promptly move outside the marker to evade. If your Pal is a Water-type being targeted by this Electric move, put it back in its Sphere to avoid getting hit.

Keep Eye On The Ground To Avoid Erupting Fire

Move outside the range while keeping an eye on the area where Faeleris is summoning a fire pillar. Use the time to reposition yourself while the fire pillar is becoming active since Marcus and Faleris won't launch an attack while doing so.

Attack That Spits Fire From The Mouth Is Quick

You will notice a bright glow under Faeleris before it shoots fire. Take note that this attack occurs quickly and is difficult to evade, so be ready for it.

The Fireball Attack Is Dangerous As It Tracks Its Target

After a fireball appears above Marcus and Faleris, they will then attack by launching the fireball and causing an explosion upon impact. This attack will track you and can cause lots of damage, so time your roll right to dodge it.

You Can Also Change The Damage Multiplier

Configuration image for an easier defeat
Damage from Player MultiplierSet it to 5 (Maximum)
Damage to Player MultiplierSet it to 0.1 (Lowest)

For those who find it difficult to win or want to defeat enemies more easily, there's also the option to change the damage multiplier in the custom difficulty settings. Although it may feel less rewarding, it becomes much easier to defeat them.

  2. Enter the PIDF Tower after becoming Wanted.

Unlock Fast Travel At The Pidf Tower Entrance
Unlock Fast Travel At Tower Entrance

First, head to PIDF Tower and unlock the fast travel near the entrance. It is built on a snowy mountain directly north of the Plateau of Beginnings.

Enter The PIDF Tower After Becoming Wanted

Next, attack friendly NPCs such as villagers to trigger the Wanted status. Since you won't become a wanted Criminal when you let your Pal attack, so you will need to attack on your own using your hands or weapon. Once you become Wanted, use fast travel to head to the PIDF Tower and enter inside.

How To Get Rid Of Wanted Status
Small Settlement Is Close To Plateau Of Beginnings
 Map Image Of Small Settlement

There is no PIDF guard infantry near the PIDF Tower itself. There is an NPC (PIDF Guard) in the Small Settlement located west of the Plateau of Beginnings, so it is advisable to head there.

All Village & Town Locations
Direct The PIDF's Attack On Marcus And Faleris

When you start the boss battle this way, there will be a PIDF in the boss area, so make use of the PIDF's firepower to deal with Marcus. Start by directing Marcus and Faleris' attacks on the PIDF infantry, this will make the PIDF target them instead of you.

Minimize Damage Dealt By Pal
Image of Pal Damage Settings
Damage from PalsSet it to 0.1 (Lowest)

When the settings are set to normal, the PIDF infantry becomes unable to continue the battle because they are immobilized when Marcus and Faeleris' attacks hit them. Set 'Damage Dealt by Pal' to 0.1 in the World Settings to significantly reduce the damage PIDF takes. Be sure to configure this.

Difficulty Settings Guide
Capture The Immobilized Marcus

If you wait a bit after PIDF's Attack hits Marcus, they will run outside then stop and that's when you can capture them. But if they get stuck on a pillar in the middle and stops, you won't be able to catch them. Make sure to move to the edge of the field before throwing the Sphere.

Return To The Title → Complete By Logging In Again
Screen returning to title

If you have successfully captured them, open the menu and return to the title. When you log in again, you will start from outside the tower, and the wanted status will also be removed. You can then check to see if Marcus And Faleris is in your inventory to confirm a successful capture.
