Eliminate the sword first

Actually, the most pressing concern is the massive sword on Elder Mist's right side. This sword consistently lashes out whenever you confront him, causing substantial harm to you and your allies. Consequently, focusing on disabling the sword is crucial.

The sword possesses a total of 90 health, which means it might take a few turns to wear it down. However, it's important to note that this sword has a regenerative property, and it will reappear after some time. So, swiftly shift your focus back to the main boss while the sword is regenerating, and then you can repeat the process.

Interrupt the Elder Mist's charge attacks

Elder Mist's ultimate attack is a charged move. When you notice Elder Mist gearing up for his next strike, it's vital to respond with an attack that matches his charging move, using the appropriate symbol when the charge meter appears. If you fail to halt his charge before his turn, he'll heal himself significantly, undoing much of your prior efforts.

Ensuring you follow all the above steps, you can beat Elder Mist in a matter of minutes!
