This is considered easier than the first Jack of Blades fight in the Chamber of Fate but can be frustrating if you don't know what you're doing. A good tactic is to use all the experience from The Souls of Heroes to max out strength and to use the remainder to raise the speed statistic.
Method 1 Edit
This method takes less damage from Jack's health but he will also take less from you. If you have a high range speciality or you're a good mage - keep running around the arena while hitting him in the nose with fire, lightning or even ghost swords if you must.
Method 2 Edit
This is a good technique and takes a lot of health from Jack in a short period of time. If you can activate Slow Time just as he lands, it will sometimes end exactly when he takes flight again. If you have a really strong weapon like the Solus Greatsword or Avo's Tear, his health meter will go down incredibly fast.
Method 3 Edit
Multi Arrow comes in very useful here, and this is especially powerful if you have it at a high level with a legendary bow. Simply stand on one of the podium-like perches at either side of the triangle and shoot him when he lands. Avoid his fire, and when a Summoner comes, destroy it - or better yet, bait it into Jack's own fiery breath. Repeat this, occasionally stopping to use a potion or the Heal Life spell, until he's dead. This method requires a little patience, but it is a very safe method for defeating him.
Method 4 Edit
The fastest way of doing this to use the combination of Beserker and Physical Shield as long as both of them are past Level 4. Make sure you have a lot of potions with you because all you need to do is make sure the Physical Shield is always up and use the Beserker right before he drops from the sky and all you need to do is hit him between the eyes. If your Physique is all the way all you need is 4 times of when he lands to kill him. By far the fastest but most dangerous to die.
You will need a high level multi strike spell and slow time spell (at level 3 or 4). As the battle begins cast slow time then run up to Jack and start hitting him with multi strike, repeating the spell. A lot his health will go down quite fast if you have maxed out strength.
The Aftermath Edit
When the Hero eventually kills him, he will absorb Jack's soul into his mask and the player will be presented with a choice - wear the mask or throw it into the surrounding lava. Scythe will contact the Hero and demand that the mask be thrown into the lava, while Jack tempts the Hero to wear the mask with promises of great power. If the player chooses to wear it Jack will take over the Hero's body, killing him in the process, but the soul of Jack of Blades will live on. However if the Hero casts the mask into the lava, the soul of Jack of Blades will be destroyed and lost forever.
- To resume game play after killing Jack of Blades one must sit through the credits. Otherwise the game will not save the fact that one has completed The Final Battle and will be loaded from before one has entered The Bronze Gate.
