Now you can go right to the platform. You'll encounter level 6 Legionnaires along the way, but they shouldn't cause you much trouble. Continue walking down the corridor forward. In the next room, you will have to fight two waves of enemies at once if they are next to each other. Fortunately, many of them are vulnerable to fire, so you can easily deal with them with Himeko.
How to defeat the Doomsday Beast
Look around the room to find a chest and notes, and then open the door and go down to the teleporter. After reaching the quest marker, watch the video with the boss. Next, you have to fight him.
No matter how much speed your characters have, the boss will still start walking first, hitting you twice. Your goal is to survive two phases of the enemy, each time destroying 3 targets on it (two arms and an engine). At the same time, each part of the Beast's body has different vulnerabilities, so you need to choose the right characters for them to attack.
Fortunately, all targets have a weakness to fire, so Himeko's superpower will be able to break through the shield of all limbs at once. Once you destroy these objects, the Doomsday Beast will fall and you can deal damage to it. Use your skills to quickly finish him off. After that, the second phase will begin, where you will have to repeat this process.
Your squad will most likely include Pathfinder, Dan Heng, March 7, and Himeko. At the beginning, we advise you to save skill points in order to gradually apply shields to all your characters. Then use Himeko's area attacks to break through the targets' vulnerability.
Spend skill points on Pathfinder and Dan Heng abilities only if you have extra points or if the targets' durability is reduced by half. If you still can't defeat the boss, then try to level up the characters to the maximum by returning back, finishing off the remaining enemies and opening all the chests.
After destroying the boss, watch a spectacular cutscene, and then chat with Himeko and Gerta. Next, go to the scientist's office and talk to her alone. After the conversation ends, the mission will come to an end. As a reward, you will receive 80 Star Jade, 30,000 Credits, 3 Adventure Logs, and 1200 Mastery XP.
