Three Star Victory Strategy
Assemble a team of players who do not use magic staves: Kaim, Sed, Seth, Tolten and Mack. (The Seal condition makes magic users useless in this battle.) Equip as many of them as you can with rings having the Aerial Killer enhancement. Make sure that your front line characters have Guard and Counter equipped. Also, equip accessories or skills as you can to nullify poison. Also, ensure that at least two of your characters are able to perform the Cut Down skill.
At the start of the battle, you have two goals: reduce the enemies' GC and take down the King Owl before the Insectors. Use Cut Down judiciously to reduce the front line's GC without killing any of the Insectors. Have all other characters concentrate their efforts on the King Owl. Even though your characters are blinded, which accounts for the high frequency of misses, the Areal Killer enhancement should help you take down the King Owl quickly -- two or three rounds for a team averaging Level 40.
Once the Owl has been taken down, grind on the Insectors until they have all been taken out. Here again, Cut Down may be useful -- it doesn't inflict as much damage as a direct attack, but it will almost always cause damage to half the front line. You will find that Counter comes in handy here as well, since most counter attacks will not miss.
A Level 40 team should be able to finish this battle in no more than eight turns.
It should also be noted that a higher level team should remove Counter if currently in use on any character. As it will most likely affect the secret winning conditions.
Allow your melee based characters to use Break Hit on the Big Owl first, while your casters defend.
When the Owl falls, change to an all out offense.
