Try To Remember How To Dodge Wind Magic

Learn The Timing Of 5 Hits Of Wind Magic + Aerora Combo

The first hit of 5 wind magic shots are pretty slow so use Dodge to activate precision dodge. Aerora will come as a follow-up, which is more difficult to dodge because of its faster speed. Watch the motion and learn when to dodge.

For Aeroga, Move Sideways To Dodge The Impact

Aeroga is a wide-range Magic, so it is recommended to move sideways to keep distance from the point of impact and then use Dodge to escape the range. You can also dodge it without moving sideways if you time your dodge correctly.

Evade Windblade (Horizontal) By Keeping A Distance Then Dodging

The wind blade (horizontal) has a fairly wide area, so It is difficult to avoid unless press dodge to evade at the right time.. Keep your distance so that you can easily time your Dodge.

Avoid Wind Blades (Vertical) By Standing Between Them.

Vertical wind blades can be easily dodged by keeping your distance and standing between the attacks. If you keep your distance, you can safely avoid it without using dodge.

Phoenix Shift To Close Distance

Benedikta often attacks from a distance, so melee attacks most of the time does not reach her. Phoenix's Feat "Phoenix Shift" can close the distance at once, so make good use of it to Attack.

Watch Consecutive Attacks Till The End And Attack

The 2nd form's consecutive attacks are strong and when you miss the evading timing, then you will be inflicted with damage. If Benedikta is even a little off the ground, then there is a chance of consecutive attacks so wait till she comes back and then attack.

Nosedive Is The Best Chance

Nosedive can be avoided by just running, and when she lands you are able to attack her consecutively. When Nosedive comes then run, and get ready to attack.

When Wind Magic Comes, Then Focus On Evade

The Wind Magic on the 2nd form, Aero attacks will often be involved and when you get hit, you will be inflicted by great damage. For Wind Magic, you will want to focus on evading and get ready for the close range attacks that come after.

After the cutscene that occurs after decreasing the HP by half, she will use a grabbing attack "Deadly Embrace". If you get caught, there will be a combo and inflicted by great damage, so when you see the move name, you will want to evade right away.

Like the video above, she will often use this move after throwing 2 wind balls so remember this.
