This fight subjects you to a trio of equally skilled bosses, two who prioritize with melee attacks and one who spends most of the time casting spells. Who you address first is up to you and your personal preferences. If you find ranged magic attacks unpredictable, focus on the mage first. One other incentive to focus on the mage is he switches to homing attacks if you let the battle last long enough. Three against one might sound intimidating, but they move just slow enough that frequent dodges and a watchful eye on your health will both go a long way. Lastly, don’t let the sight of their long swords compel you to transform your melee weapon into its longer form. You can do a lot of damage up close with the shorter version if that is your prefered weapon.
