Defeat Weaker Enemies First

VS Minor Enemies

It's hard to fight if you leave soldiers around, so wipe them out first to create a three-on-one situation.

Respond To A Variety Of Attack Patterns

Eikon Shiva's Dominant has many Attack patterns, so watch its motion carefully and avoid it. Basically, after Evading Magic, you will have a gap, so pack up and Aim for Attack.

Frontal Charge Attack

Shiva's Dominant will fly and attack towards you. If you time it well, you can easily move on to counterattack.

Magic Arrow Shots

The AoE is small and the attack speed is also slow so you can easily dodge it by moving sideways.

Three Ice Blades

The charge time is pretty long so prepare for dodging once it starts. It is recommended to move to pack Phoenix Shift immediately after dodging for counter.

Ice Flower Around The Body

When a shadow of ice forms around your body, it signals the start of the attack so prepare for dodging. After it is activated, there is time to attack the enemy.

Magic Attacks Can Be Repelled With Heatwave

By using the "Heatwave" Abilities of Phoenix at the right time, you can repel Magic Attacks. This attack is not automatically learned so make sure to learn it from Abilities

Ability And Feat Guide

Evade Blizzaga By Looking At The Shadows

If you reduce the Dominant's HP to some extent, she will launch Blizzaga. It is a wide-range Attack Magic, but you can evade it by watching the shadow of ice on the ground. Dodge the moves until the magic is over.
