Ambrosia Bestiary Guide (All Locations & Bosses Guide)

Full stats (HP and Weaknesses) for all of the monsters and bosses within the game.

 

Introduction + Tips/Advice

First off, the real reason you’re clicking on this guide is at the very bottom (in its own section) of this guide. Next, I will divide up each map into a category it fits into (which you’ll see on your right and at the end of this section) along with each monster and its stats present in that map. Lastly, I will single out important bits about certain unique aspects of both the bosses and the silver chests functions into its own section, as well.

Before moving on to the list of the map areas into their categories, I felt I needed to put some Tips & Tricks out on the table so you’re more aware of them:

Tip #1: Poison damage (whether on Flode or your enemy) takes 10% of max hp each turn. For the bosses that can be poisoned (who will be mentioned in their sections) and the bosses that can poison you, this is highly useful to keep aware of.

Tip #2: Most every regular monster can be blinded and put to sleep, with some bosses being susceptible to being blinded, as well as sometimes being put to sleep. I’ve experimented with most of them, but not all of them so I can’t not say one boss can or can’t be put to sleep/blinded; I just might’ve not tried it.

Tip #3: Some status ailments that Flode can have (Aroused, sensitive, drenched [in c*m], orgasm [in combat]) will negatively affect Flode’s stats. Being drenched lowers your agility (your speed and/or dodge); Being sensitive lowers your defense; and being aroused lowers all of your base stats by a significant amount. Orgasming while in combat will result in a turn of Flode’s being missed, while having even lower stats for that turn duration.

Tip #4: Perhaps the biggest tip/trick/advice that I know to give is: If you’re having difficulty with some battles; you’re already on the easiest difficulty setting within the game (unless you’ve changed it yourself, you madman). Do not be afraid to level-up Flode or get some better gear, spells and accessories. Your Priestess Rank is important in the post game battles! The higher it is, the better spells you have at your disposal.

Tip #5: The massage you can get in Myra is beneficial to you in various ways. The first (cheapest) massage you can get gives an all-day small stat boost, but also an exp boost. The second (middle-option) massage you can get gives an all-day better stat boost, along with the exp boost. The third (more expensive) option gives the same benefits as the 2nd massage, but gives you the H-event along with it. Just to emphasize: The massage boost lasts all day until you go to sleep to the next day.

Tip #6: A small bit of advice about the ‘Fear’ status effect some monsters can inflict. Although it does not affect your magical abilities’ damage or resistance, it does affect your attack and defense. If you’re using a lot of physical melee strikes or receiving a lot of them in the battle, get rid of it!

Tip #7: You remember all those Techniques you could choose to start with when starting your New Game? The primary reason I bring this up is that you can get all of them once you start a NG+. Once you re-unlock Myra as a destination, visit the Fortune Teller’s shop. She will have for sale all 6 of the skills you could choose to start with for 50,000 G each. This becomes very useful for tackling post-game bosses.

Silver Chests

This deserves its own section simply because of its mechanic (that is also shared with the harvesting mechanic).

Silver chest OPENINGS are randomized loot each time; same thing with harvesting at most any one harvest spot.

What this means is that if you need an item (which I have mostly listed in their corresponding boss earlier in the guide) from a specific chest but don’t want to spend in-game days to get it, you can save-scum for the item.

  • Step 1: Beat the boss
  • Step 2: Save before opening the Silver Chest
  • Step 3: Open chest, check rewards
  • Step 4: If rewards are not what you wanted from the chest, quit to title and reload save.
  • Step 5: Repeat until you get what you wanted.

Please note, this also works for almost any harvesting location. Although some locations generally only have a predetermined “roll” for the type of harvest you get, there are some that have multiple types that you can get.
For instance in the Sweet-Smelling Forest, you might go through all of the harvesting marks and only get 1 rubian fruit. You could reload a save before harvesting the Forest, and go through it once more but this time get 5 rubian fruits instead.

=====
A useful Technique you get at some point Post Game status is called “Collector” and it’s super useful for harvesting. I’m unsure of the exact requirements to obtain it, though my guess is it involves harvesting a certain amount of times, or unlocking and harvesting from all harvest spots in a day.
The main draw of this technique is that you get DOUBLE (and sometimes triple depending on harvesting location) the harvesting loot from each spot every time.

[If someone is able to narrow down the requirements for this and inform me of it, I’ll add it to the guide.]

Night-Time Bosses

This deserves its own section because 1st) they have to be found at night and 2nd) They have a difficulty curve. Which is all I needed in order to make it into its own section! So in here, I will order the bosses by difficulty (NOT BY LOCATION); and I will also provide pictures to pinpoint their locations.

One other thing to note: You CAN surprise all but one night-time bosses by initiating the battle on their right-side tile so you have an extra turn in the beginning.

I could have easily switched Leidran and Nuxy but I personally struggled with Nuxy more because of the passive healing from Nuxy was obnoxious.

True Final Boss

First off, the stats of the True Final Boss:
Name: Paracress Antithesis
HP: 120000
Weakness: Reverse Nemesis (unlockable spell) ; Qliphoth Sign (Melee-only when equipped)If you are seriously attempting to battle this boss (on any difficulty), it is highly recommended to be at least level 90-99, highest level staff you have (Shark Staff is best, Paracelsus Staff second best), best gear and accessories you can use (more on that later) and Rank 9 Priestess rank for the best possible skills to use. It’s entirely possible to beat this boss on a fresh NG playthrough, but it’s 100% recommended to battle in NG+, after unlocking all of the skills from the Fortune Teller (which all give good passive effects useful in this battle).

So first off, I’ll detail the best possible gear/accessories to have, followed by the next best; and if you can’t afford those, a final option will be presented though isn’t entirely recommended/guaranteed to let you win.

  • Weapon: Shark Staff > Alchemic Staff: Paracelsus > Alchemic Staff: Aurora
  • Body: Priestess Dress > Magique Uniform
  • Head: Eden’s Flower Crown > Saint’s Ribbon
  • Feet: Astral Boots > Silver Wings
  • Accessory (1): Omnipotent Brand > Demi-god Soul > Eternal Coin > E. Master Ring
  • Accessory (2): Forest Charm (for MP regen) > Qlipoth Sign > Destruction God Insignia
  • Special: Nox’s Protection > Holy Woman’s Necklace

After the gear optimization, next is spells. Depending on the weapon and gear you’re using, your spell usage will also change drastically. If you have the Shark Staff or the Alchemic Staff: Paracelsus, you likely will not use any other offensive spell besides those primarily. The only concern comes from how you’re going to recover MP; either through item recoveries, or through an accessory that passive regens.

  • Shark Staff’s Shark Bringer brings good consistent damage each turn, normally out-damaging the heal Antithesis can do.
  • Alchemic Staff: Paracelsus’ Spirit Destruction, paired with E. Master Ring‘s high-level magic works well. Massive MP consumption.
  • Reverse Nemesis is a must-have for Phase 2 and beyond in this battle, and everyone can obtain it by beating the secret boss (looting the chest behind it) in the Forgotten Treasure House. It simply nullifies the Holy Energy buff Antithesis applies to himself while also doing some weakness-typed damage to him.
  • Senescence debuffs Antithesis considerably well, allowing you to reduce the amount of physical and magical damage you receive whenever it’s applied (although managing to keep it active is tough sometimes when you’re being hit by a streak of bad luck).
  • Drop of Leight is the best possible heal you can use (besides item heals if you want to save MP and have an abundance of HP-healing items).
  • Rainbow Protection is the best counter to the debuffs that Antithesis casts on you. If you’re hit with the debuff from Qliphoth Elixir, simply using it will erase the debuffs and protects you from further ones until they run out. One thing to take note on, if you’ve been hit with Qliphoth Elixir to always heal first before using Rainbow Protection in-case Antithesis charges up for Nemesis immediately after. You can survive if you have full HP + defending even with lowered stats; the same can’t be said if you’re defending with low HP but full stats.

Lastly, item usages. For these, I’ll simply name off the best recovery items to prioritize over others in the same category, then some additional items to consider using in Phase 2-3 (or 3 only if limited supplies).

  • For HP recovery: Complete Recovery ; Life Essence ; Nectar ; Sweet Syrup
  • For MP recovery: Nectar ; Sweet Syrup ; Spiritual Water ; Pure Mana Water
  • For additional buffs: Dragon’s Blood, Soul Powder, Heat Potion

Dragon’s Blood is the best item to save until the last phase of the battle, where you’re more likely to need to out-damage Antithesis through his 5000 HP heals. Next best is Soul Powder, which has a passive MP regeneration throughout its use along with a massive buff to your magical attacks.

——-

Now to the meat of the matter: how this boss functions + how to combat it.

Paracress Antithesis has 3 ‘phases’ or ‘stages’ it can effectively be categorized into.

Phase 1: Its initial stage it starts the battle with. This is generally the warm-up for both of you to feel each other’s attacks, see the damage each of you can dish out, and generally is the most important step of this battle. If you notice you’re not doing good damage, or you’re taking too much damage already, you’re not ready enough to battle this boss without some serious headaches and a lucky streak.

Phase 2: This phase starts when Paracress Antithesis starts ‘bathing itself with holy energy’ as a visible buff (and not the attack). What this buff means is: Antithesis does double the amount of damage for everything. If you were having trouble in Phase 1, Phase 2 isn’t going to be easier unless you have Reverse Nemesis. But if you do, simply use the spell whenever Antithesis buffs itself to remove it, and continue on in Phase 2 as you were in Phase 1. Simply watch out for its HP-halving attack (which massively debuffs you, too), and its 3000 HP heals. Other than that, Phase 2 is no different than Phase 1.

Phase 3: Continuing onwards in the long battle, Antithesis will eventually enter Phase 3, where instead of a 3000 HP heal; it becomes a 5000 HP heal. Along with that change, it also has a Miasmatic Flare attack it will use. Besides those 2 changes, the fight remains the same. Simply remove the holy energy buff whenever possible to make the fight easier, and keep your health up.

The different possible attacks Paracress Antithesis can do:

  • Tentacle arms (x2 physical attack)
  • Eclipse (single medium-damage magical attack)
  • Qliphoth Elixir (Miasmatic-typed(?) attack that halves your current HP and debuffs your stats significantly)
  • Miasmatic Flare (single high-damage magical attack)
  • Nemesis [After a 1-turn warm-up message of collecting massive amounts of holy energy] (x3 magical attacks)
  • 3000 (5000) HP self-heal [Although technically not an attack, needs to be listed here]

===================
Below is the stat-page and build I used in the video at the bottom of this section.
Please note: These stats should not be used as a baseline to what you’ll need to beat Antithesis on the default (Story) difficulty. This is just natural character progression through 3 play-throughs as a NG++ save file.

As seen in the video, Antithesis on Very Hard does whatever whenever so it’s not the best guideline to what I’ve mentioned earlier. It does show how the fight can progress and what you can do to win.
