The Last Story Walkthrough
Chapter 2: Lazulis Road
Starting the new chapter, save ahead then run out to see the sun and shore. Peace won’t last long, people are already in danger. Follow your party into the field to see what’s going on.
Boss: Clearing – Forest Beast
You can’t use magic against this strange spirit Tiger at first, until all the kids are safe. Just get the monster’s attention, and your party will save the children on their own.
Activate Gathering and prepare to Guard. Keep dodging as it attacks, or guard, only dropping your guard when the beast finishes it’s attacks.
Once Yurick finishes saving both kids, you can turn off Gathering to give yourself some breathing room and check out the creature’s weaknesses with Seek Mode.
This boss is more of a fight than before, you’ll need to learn how to dodge and guard as the moment calls for it, only stopping to attack when the Beast leaves an opening.
The Forest Beast is vulnerable to combo attacks. Swarm the creature and build a combo with attacks, or by guarding. While guarding, your combo will continue to build as long as you aren’t hit.
Keep attacking, drawing the Beast into flame circles cast by Yurick, and chaining combos. An uncomplicated fight, but a tricky one as it’s your first real test.
After the fight, follow your party up the cliff path. You can stop to speak with any of the NPCs with white triangles over their heads, or continue on to the city. The city entrance is just ahead, through the tunnel.
As you approach, you’ll get your introduction to the castle, its cannon, and a title for the game.
