Boss Combat Tips Guide

1Until you can figure out the enemy's Attack pattern, dodge is the best
2Succeed Attack/Cinematic Evasion (qte)
3While it is staggered, then use Ability to inflict great damage

Dodge While Figuring Out Enemy's Attack Pattern

The Bosses has great Attack Power, so even with 1 blow, you will be inflicted with great damage. Until you get used to the enemy's Attack pattern, you will want to Dodge as much as possible.

▶Dodge Guide

Succeed Attack/Cinematic Evasion


Bosses, except for Morbol, there will be a short cutscene during battle and you will have an event (qte) where you will enter a command in a certain of time. When you succeed then you will have an Attack chance so make sure to complete it.

While Staggered, Inflict Great Damage

When you have decreased the Bosses' Will Gauge (yellow gauge under HP), then you will be able to get a 100% Staggered. When you inflict damage during this time, it will be increased by maximum 1.5 times. So if you are able to inflict damage at this time then you will be able to finish the Bosses' battle quicker.
