The Golden Mage Knight is the game’s most powerful foe that players will face in the game, although defeating them will be worth as you can get the most powerful weapons in the game.
As mentioned in our Magnus Zero guide, the Golden Mage Knight lies at the very depths of the dungeon. Those who wish to get the powerful weapons for all six characters must face the Knight:
Golden Mage Knight Tips
- In order to make things a lot easier and guaranteeing that you will not die in this battle is to make sure you are at least level 85-90 with all of the resistance skills, boosts in stats, and almost filled up Lillium Orb. Also, make sure you equip the best boosting stats that you can since it will help big time in this fight.
- Golden Mage Knight has three phases:
First Phase – You will only get to fight him and it may seem very easy. Keep doing a linking arte to do devastating damage on him.
Second Phase – When you get his HP down to zero, he will split himself up. You will now fight two Mage Knights that does different attacks. In order to make this phase easier, seek out the knight that does magic damage, which is the Conductor. The Mage Knight Conductor will do a lot of magic attacks that deals 4000-5000HP damage and the way he moves is fast. To counter or stop his attacks, make sure that you are using Jude’s arte that he learned from beating the game. That will knock the boss down and break his guard. In my playthrough, I linked up with Alvin.
Final Phase – The fight gets tougher as the Mage Knight now multiplies into three. Similar to the the second phase, find the ones that does the elemental artes as it’s the one that deals a massive amount of damage and can wipe out the party in an instant. Keep focusing in cancelling his attack by knocking down the “Creator” and the “Puppeteer”.
If you surpass the challenge, you are now worthy to receive the most powerful weapons in the game. Remember that Devil’s Arm weapons that you have received from the Six Beasts? The Golden Mage Knight will unlock its full potential allowing you to gain more power as you take down more enemies. It means that the more you take down enemies, the higher the base stats get. Those who are seeking to do 9999 damage in one punch from Jude is now possible with the unlocked Devil’s Arm weapon that you got!
That’s it! Congrats in taking down the toughest boss in the game. Now go get that Platinum Trophy!
