This battle is pretty simple once you realise that the vast majority of the Sword Master’s attacks are counters. To that end, Default to the max and have your party members take turns in using three or four Braves in a row to dispense a helping of devastating damage. Don’t be tempted to have multiple party members attack simultaneously as his counters are rather powerful and you’ll need to heal them up immediately with a White Mage or potions.
