How to Beat Lord Ganabelt Valkyris Boss in Tales of Arise?

Here are some helpful tips for beating Lord Ganabelt in Tales of Arise.

To beat Lord Ganabelt in Tales of Arise, you will need to prepare by selecting the right abilities and make alexandrite accessories to protect against his strong light attacks and ultimate attack for all of your companions.

You can make alexandrite accessories by visiting a merchant at a campsite or a metal engraver specializing in accessories - both merchants can be found inside Inns as well.

Alexandrite accessories will require some form of chrysoberyl mass, which you get from large crystal nodes in various locations across Tales of Arise.

One notable location is Ulvhan Grotto, so we recommend fast traveling and collecting both nodes at that location to farm Chrysoberyl Mass if you don't have any on hand.

We also recommend resting and choosing one of the various cooking recipes that boost the rare ore drop rate or the amount you can get, such as Vegetable soup and Juice.

That said, when you have the chrysoberyl mass, take it to a merchant and click craft accessories as shown above. After doing so, you will be able to make alexandrite by finding it among the list of items you can craft, as shown below.

Click alexandrite and then choose one of the variants of the ore. We recommend higher terms of at least rarity three and up as you can get decent bonuses such as even more light damage reduction or boost to wind damage.

Make four alexandrites and equip them on all four of your companions and then make sure each companion has the following loadout

CharacterEquipment Loadout
LawCrystal Knuckles, Onyx Vest, Alexandrite

Along with the equipment items listed above, you should also make sure each companion has at least the following ability artes checked only along with any healing or support buffs, and Mystic Artes not included on the list.

LawTectonic Punch, Fang Blast, and Steel

Once you have all of your characters fully decked out, stock up on items and camp and give yourself a boost to attack with one of the recipes such as the Doc's Kebab recipe. After resting, you will be ready to head in but before you do, make sure to read our helpful tips for beating Lord Ganabelt Valkyris section.

Helpful tips for beating Lord Ganabelt Valkyris Boss in Tales of Arise

TipWhat to Do
Use Law to smash his defenseYou will need to use Law's boost attack to destroy Lord Ganabelt's defenses to progress throughout the boss fight. Because of this, we recommend playing as law and keep the offensive up and build his boost attack and use it at least three times. After three times, a cut scene should play that will start the next portion of the Boss fight.
Stock up on ItemsYou will lose health throughout the fight with Lord Ganabelt, so we highly recommend stocking on items such as Life potions, Apple Gel and Peal Gel to aid you throughout the fight.
Turn go all out on bosses on:We highly recommend turning on go all out on bosses in strategies as it will make it so your companions will focus their attacks and be aggressive during boss fights, which you want during this boss fight. It will also help them build boost attacks and help law break his defenses.
Evade when you canSome attacks are hard to read when fighting Lord Ganabelt, others are hard to avoid, so you will want to evade and watch out as if you try to attack him during certain attacks, as you will just lose health. We also recommend attacking and dodging out of the way to avoid any counters he may have.
Focus on his doublesEventually, after breaking his defenses you will need to kill several doubles, focus on them to progress to the next part of the attack, and avoid getting one shot by his ultimate attack.
Spam Boost attacksBoost attacks are going to be your friend during this fight as they can help go a mile towards lowering his health bar, plus if you have go all out on bosses, building these attacks will be easier.
