The second Eidolon you come across is Odin. Being a legendary knight means Odin is no push over. This can be quite a tough battle if you haven’t prepared your team. Check out our trick to gaining Odin’s trust lightning fast.
Before you enter this battle you will need to prepare. Odin is pretty tough and doesn’t give you much time to think about what to do. You can go into the option settings in the main menu and change the battle speed to slow if you are really struggling to make quick decisions.
You will need to have a specific Paradigm load-out to make this battle easy and quick. Head into the main menu and select Paradigms. Select Customize and change the top three options to;
- Lightning: Medic / Hope: Synergist
- Lightning: Ravager / Hope: Ravager
- Lightning: Medic / Hope: Medic
Make sure the Medic/Synergist Paradigm is the active one, so when you do enter the battle there is no need to switch. To make it a default Paradigm, head back into the Paradigm/Customize section and press Square/X on the desired load-out.
One last tip before heading into battle is to pre-cast some enhancements on your party with Shrouds. Outside of the menus, tap L1/LB on your controller to bring up the Shroud menu. Select with buffs you’d like and cast them. This will add a glowing effect around your party leader and if you activate a battle while in this glowing state, you enter with all the buffs automatically cast. This is great for tough boss and Eidolon battles!
Now you are ready to face Odin! As the battle starts, keep healing and buffing your characters if you didn’t use a Shroud prior to the battle. This should only take up 2-3 turns as you don’t want to waste too much time protecting yourself. Once buffed, Paradigm shift to Ravager/Ravager and start unleashing magical attacks on Odin. Chaining attacks on Odin will raise his Gestalt meter very quickly.
If Odin uses his shield to guard, keep attacking with magic. As soon as he starts attacking, switch to the Medic/Medic paradigm. Odin hits hard and fast and if you don’t have both Lightning and Hope on healing you will be taken out very quickly. Thankfully, healing each other also raises the Gestalt meter.
Keep switching between each paradigm in accordance to Odin’s attack pattern and you will fill up the meter very quickly. Tap the Square/X button on your controller as soon as the meter fills up and you will now have gained the loyalty of Odin.
