Final Battle – A Beast in the Cathedral
In this battle, you will be facing Aelfric turned Umbral Beast who is immensely powerful and occasionally summons phantoms to aid him.

When this final battle begins, use the Retribution gambit through Ashe on all units so that they can perform more powerful counter-attacks.

It is because the Beast’s minions will be attacking from a distance and hence your units should be able to knock them.

The phantoms will also drop concoctions which are quite useful throughout the battle.

After this, the Beast will summon three phantoms of Aelfric who can perform Fire magic and the Beast can heal himself by absorbing their health.

During all this, use Dimitri, Byleth, Edelgard, Balthus and Claude to deal with the Beast.

Umbral Surge
The Umbral Surge is a deadly AoE attack that covers all the tiles of the entire map. Besides being deadly to all your units, the move also even reposition them while teleporting the Umbral Beast himself.

At the end of the battle, the Beast will summon the phantoms again in a more strategic way. To deal with this final blow, you should use Hilda, Hapi, Ashe and Constance first and then bombard the beast with combat arts.

For this, you can use Edelgard, Dimitri and Claude for Monster Breaker, Monster Piercer and Monster Blast moves respectively. And meanwhile, use Byleth to attack with Bane of Monsters or Ruptured Heaven moves
