How To Beat Midnight Raven
Defeat The Weaker Soldiers First
Since there are several soldiers besides the boss, focus on reducing the number of soldiers first. It is a good idea to reduce the number of soldiers one by one while dodging the attack of the bosses.
Main Strategy Is To Evade → Attack
Because Midnight Raven moves quickly and agilely, watch the enemy's movements and prioritize evading actions. Evading attacks at the right time and launching a series of blows from Precision Dodge is an effective strategy.▶Dodge Guide - How To Precision Dodge

Beware Of Fuuton → Assassinate Combo
The boss disappears with Fuuton and then attacks from a distance with an assassinate. If you are hit by the Assassinate, you will be heavily damaged by the Rush Attack. So you should not lose sight of the enemy's position after Fuuton.▶ How To Beat Fafnir
