@Fernyfer775 Here are the stats of my chars for the fight: Spoiler I don't use the normal attack at all, I almost never run out of MP thanks to Trish Aqua stance. I use hunters mark+wyvern strike2 a lot. Healing spell + Smite2, holy flare on a pinch. Trish keeps the DoT going and replenish MP everytime she can, along with her 2 debuffs always on. Ryudo uses all the defense buffs at all time, plus wound and strike. I guard when she is gonna use ultima, but still get rekt. I use the Limit mostly for defense. You got me with the mass purify tho, I forgot about it, I've played too many rpgs and usually that skill only cures poison lol. So...? Was I underprepared? What threw me off the most was the fact the mad general fight was perfectly fine, and the enemies were also fine. But the difficulty curve just jumped through the roof with her, you need to time everything perfectly and have every buff available on you, that's not well balanced at all, IMO. Anyway, I switched to easy to deal with her, and was pleasantly surprised, the battle was fantastic, I could defeat her before her second -stage 3 ultima-. And the pacing of the battle was perfect(buff-strategy-finalpush), but it still WASN'T easy at all! I think that is what the original battle should've been. After that, I switched again to normal... only to get DESTROYED by the Mega Pincer of Berserking found in World Map, I'm gonna stick with easy, but I am not happy about that ): I hate playing games on baby mode.
