Updated: Nov 20, 2021



How to Defeat Archdemon Mercedes?

  • Dispel Archdemon Mercede's Buffs

  • Control Minions (Optional)

  • Don't let Yellow Minion Steal Buffs

  • Save 1 Dispel Skill for After Yellow Minion and Purple Minion Use Their Skills

  • Remember Yellow Minion Cleanse and applies Immunity buff


Dispel Archdemon Mercedes's Buffs


Buff Control is the key to this fight. The longer you can keep Archdemon Mercedes without buffs, the better. This is because Archdemon Mercedes gain two things when she has a buff on herself:

  1. Her Basic attack triggers a follow up teamwide attack with chance to decrease Defense

  2. She gains Combat Readiness whenever she gets hit

By constantly dispelling her buffs, we can limit the amount of damage she does significantly.



Control Minions (Optional)


Yellow and Purple minions does a lot for Archdemon Mercedes and unfortunately we cannot kill them. What we can do is control them and make sure they do not take too many turns. There are two ways to control them:

  1. Apply debuffs like stun, silence, etc.

  2. Bring AOE damage and kill them


When they receive fatal damage, they will become stunned. So that is one way to just use AOE damage to damage them.


Don't let Yellow Minion Steal Buffs


Yellow minion's basic attack has chance to steal buffs from our team and apply it to Archdemon Mercedes.

We can counter this by not applying too many buffs on our team or only applying buffs when we know we can dispel it or when Yellow minion is about to cast.



Save 1 Dispel Skill for After Yellow Minion and Purple Minion Use Their Skills


Since both Yellow and Purple minion's skills buffs Archdemon Mercedes, try to save one dispel buff skill after they use their skills.
