How To Beat Barnabas(1st Time)

When it sets for Iron Flash, focus on evading. Basic attack patterns to evade → Connect to attacks. Keep a distance to evade Lord's Measures. Watch out for the combination of Gungnir and Lord's Measures.

When It Sets Iron Flash, Then Focus On Evading

When you decrease Barnabas' HP by 10%, it will set Iron Flash and releases it. After that you will not have to attack, and when Iron Flash is activated, then the battle will finish, and it will be a winning finish. Even when it is setting, it will attack so during this time, try not to lose and keep focusing on evading.

Evade From Basic Attack Patterns → Connect To Attack

Barnabas has 3 basic attacks, Thrust, Swing Down, and Cut off. Focus on evading all of them to the side and you will be able to deal with the vacuity wave pattern so this way is recommended.

Teleportation → Focus On Evading Cut Off Attacks

Teleportation to cut off attacks will release vacuity wave attacks. When you avoid to the back, then you will be inflicted by the waves so after the teleportation, watch where the enemy is going and evade sideways and avoid as much as possible.

Avoid The Lord's Measures With A Distance

The Lord's Measures is an explosive attack that releases line like objects. When you are close to the lines, then you will be inflicted by damage so it is safe to keep a distance and run away from them.

Watch Out For Combination Of The Lord's Measures And Gungnir

When Iron Flash set is activated, it will use Gungnir and combine it with Lord's Measures. Both have a wide range attack so after you run away from 1 of them you must be careful if you are not in range for the other attack.
