According to the Version 20 Release Notes, the Final Stage of Class Trials was made harder:
We’ve now been through a full cycle of the Trials since then, so we’ve seen those changes in action, particularly in Final Boss HP, where it’s most directly observable.
It’s also possible, however, that other adjustments were made to Defense or Attack, or to the monsters prior to the bosses.

Carpet Bombing/Item Nuking
For many players who can get through the monsters to the Final Bosses, but struggle to beat the Final Bosses, carpet bombing/item nuking the Bosses is a viable strategy.
Click for Guide to Carpet Bombing/Item Nuking for Trials of Piety
If you plan on carpet bombing/item nuking, focus on surviving until the Bosses, and don’t worry too much about counteracting them, particularly if you’re going for a full nuke them from orbit approach.
Use your item slots for your attack items, and any remaining slots for health.

Recommended Items for Trials of Piety
|1, 3||Antidotes||Joon in Stages 1 and 3 causes Blindness, which can make Antidotes useful, particularly if you don’t have a clearer like Cleric Rigard, Cleric Vivica, Cleric Kunchen, Cleric Ariel, or Monk Aeron.|
|All||Mana Pots||Because healer options are relatively plentiful for Trials of Piety, healing pots may be less necessary. You may prefer mana as a safety net, in case you’re having trouble charging a healer at a key moment. Be mindful that all forms of mana pots can be difficult to sustain production of with frequent usage.|
|All||Time Stops||Clerics and Monks are light on dispellers, which can make Boss Boril’s Perfect Riposte, Boss Friar Tuck’s Mana Buff, and Boss Vivica’s Defense Buff a bit more troublesome. If your team isn’t strong enough to weather those buffs, Time Stops can be an effective — albeit resource expensive — approach to preventing Bosses from firing, and providing you more opportunities to manage the board to charge specials and do damage. Be mindful that Dragon Bone can be difficult to come by to make this a sustainable approach.
Be mindful that Dragon Bone can be difficult to come by to make this a sustainable approach.
|All||Banners||Banners are always a good option for increasing defense and/or attack.|
|All||Revive or Miracle Scrolls||Revive or Miracle Scrolls can be an effective option if your team is on the weaker side, and the little extra boost will get your through.
Be mindful that Midnight Root, Orichalcum Nugget, and Meteor Fragments can be difficult to come by to make this a sustainable approach.
