How to take down Ash easily in Soul Hackers 2

Here are a few tips that players can find helpful during Ash’s encounter in Ozaki Hope Towers in Soul Hackers 2.

1) Have the right party of demons for the job

For any hard encounter in a Megaten title, it is always important to have a party of demons who will be able to counter some of the boss's weaknesses.

Soul Hackers 2 bosses can be made significantly more manageable by exploiting the Sabbath system and exploiting the enemy's elemental weaknesses as much as possible.

Making use of the system as much as possible will make the fight easier, and players will also not have to rely on too many items in their inventory.


2) Dealing with Pazuzu first

Ash will be doing the majority of the damage in the fight. Pazuzu acts as the more annoying element who uses Miasma Breath, which will constantly tick away at the party’s health pool with every round.

Taking him out first will clear the miasma, and players will not have to deal with his bothersome ability.

3) Be wary Ash’s party synergy

Ash’s party synergizes incredibly well with each other, with Inugami’s Overload, which increases the chances of her party inflicting status ailment. With Ash’s very own Ashes to Ashes, which applies the effects of that ailment, the fight can get very overwhelming very fast.

Be wary of moves that they can pull. Players are advised to instantly remove ailments from party members.


4) Having a healer and other supportive items

Having a healer in the team and other demons who have a status effect removing ability is crucial for the fight in Soul Hackers 2.

Along with having these supportive demons in the party, players should also stock up on necessary items like Chakra Drops, Revival Beads, and other ailment-removing items, so that they will be able to make use of them when they are in a pinch.
