I second this strategy. It worked for me at lvl. 29. As far as people suggesting using Elk, Don't Do It. Elk's pretty much useless until the third game, and by that time you have Wiseman, so Elk's pretty much useless...

i actually think i over-prepared for the fight with skeith.. i had 99 healing drinks, about 65 or so mage souls.. me blackrose and sanjuro were all level 32.. i just ran in and slashed the hell out of him as fast as i could, stopped to heal and resurrect.. i think i spent more time in my menus than on the actual fight screen lol

Unfortunately, I have not battled Skeith in over three years. However, I am sure Kite was lvl 29. As my vague recollection serves me, I believed I kept hitting Skeith..........then getting as much distance away from him as possible. I fled from him in order to faciliate healing. Afterwards, it was just rinse,dry, repeat. I strongly reccomend you provide your party (in addition to yourself of course) as many potions and healing items as possible. Remember to continuously demand "First Aid" to ensure your survival. Its much easier to do that, than to tell your party to do so individually.

AIEEE! Level 29?
I was level 99 when I beat skeith, my cousin said you had to be at least that to beat him! Did I really fall for a trick!?
Anyway, with mistral and blackrose I found it harder, I used elk and black rose.

You can reach level 99. It's the level cap in it.
And it is painfully slow in the first game, one exp per monster, but I managed it, and the boss battle with skeith was pretty easy.

wow.. i hate to think of the time it would take to do that.. lets say you start at level 35 killing enemies for 1 exp each.. thats still 64 thousand enemies youd have to kill at 1 exp per enemy....

just how long DID that take..?

Geez, you probably breezed through the other games. I didn't even reach lvl 99 until after the final boss of Quarantine. :o

Anyway, if you have the best equipment available, stock up on as many recovery items and stat increase items as you can, and bring a wavemaster, you can beat Skeith. Before you enter the final door, use spells and items to get Rig Gaem and Rig Saem as well as increases in attacks, defenses, and accuracies. Their fairly cheap, so you can get quite a few. These abilities will last well past the start of battle.

Once in battle, set the wavemaster to heal immediately, and put Blackrose on skills. Have Kite use skills as well, but conserve SP for DD. Use skills that have short attack times, like Tiger Claw. Staccato is too long. Have Kite revive or heal if your Wavemaster is injured or paralyzed.

Keep an eye on everyones health, and if anyone is in trouble before the next round of healing, heal them yourself. Don't bother with Repth skills, use health Drinks or, if you have any, Healing Potions. Keep up this strategy and you can beat him easily at around level 28 or 29.

I used the "two attackers in front while Kite heals" strategy the first time, and that worked too. I used the above strategy the second time I played and it worked much better. The two attackers strategy works really well with the bonus boss, too. This strategy is how I prepared for the other phases and Cubia also. 8)

nice man, you have the patience of God.....
...personally, I was about lv45 on kite when I went to
fight Skeith.
guess I musta been bored.
(then again, I didn't have hopes of getting vol2 for about 3years)
I fought hard with blkrose and natsume( my fave in IMOQ)
notes:
-have 99antidotes
-have 99....er...the other type of status heal
-only about 50 healing if you have la repth
-the strongest possible weaps possible.

I was level 33 when I beat Skeith. I had 99 Healing Potions, 50 Mage's Soul, 50+ Restoratives and Antidotes. I had BlackRose (duh) and Elk, which assigned to First Aid while BlackRose and I went Aggro against Skeith. Just stock up on like hell on Healing Potions (I had 66- left after the fight), Mage's Soul (About 30+) and a decent amount of Restoratives and Antidotes. Just don't bother with magic on Skeith, assign Wavemasters to First Aid and use Skills (particularly speedy ones) on pre-data drained state. Careful after you drain him though, because he'll levitate and then drop doing around 200+ damage. I'm sure anyone will notice any other patterns (If they haven't already) once they fight him.

Yeah Okay. DUDE, you used Code Breaker or something. What the hell, you coulden't get to 99. STOP LIEING! You--WE all know that if you cheat to 99, you will get Data Bugs 24/7 all around the Dungeons. So practically, you either lied, or got to level 98 or lower. KTHXBAI?!

Oh Yeah, and you'd have a Server Error or something like that... PRETTY SOON?! Okay, you S0 did lie... And yeah, you fell for a TRICKY TRICK?! Z0MG. This is S000 boring Mm'kay. Waiting for Reminisce, ETC... Okay, let's not get offtopic!

Ok now... :arrow: arrow points to the next reply/quote/topic. :arrow:

I think it took 3-4 tries just to defeat Skeith for me. I leveled up to 30+, and brought Blackrose and Mistral with me. I had Mistral as the healer, and Blackrose as offense (and for me, I just did a few hits and ran off). I stocked up quite a lot, since I had a whole load of money.

I definitely suggest not going with my strategy, unless you're a good multitasker and a patient person.
