Understand How To Avoid Its Basic Attack Pattern

Try To Evade When Ground Effects Disappear

Sleipnir will inflict a dark shroud that follows Clive closely for a few seconds, which then pauses for about a second before it explodes. Once this move has been triggered, it will explode. Dodge at this timing so you do not take damage.

How To Precision Dodge

Evade Forwards To The Charged Ball

To effectively avoid the dark charged balls that target you, it is helpful to understand their behavior. These balls have a tendency to follow you when you move sideways or backward. However, if you deliberately dodge forward, it becomes easier to evade them.

Also Evade Forwards To Dodge Incoming Sword Slashes

Since it sends out a wide-ranged slashing attacks, it is safer to Evade towards the front rather than sideways to avoid it.

For Scar of Nibelung, Pass Through The Gaps

The Scar of Nibelung move is an attack that sends out radial slashes in a star-shaped form. There are gaps between these slashes which you can pas through. Dodging a single attack is relatively simple, but exercise caution when it is combined with other moves as it can become more difficult and deadlier.

Pass Slowly Through The Creeping Darkness

Numerous bombs are placed around Clive, but you can Evade them by maneuvering through the gaps. To successfully navigate through the situation, it is crucial to carefully assess your surroundings and avoid rushing.

For Dead Man's Bier, Focus On Evading

To effectively dodge the relentless barrage of spear attacks, sidestep swiftly and be prepared to Jump when the shockwave draws near. Exercise caution and try to Evade both the shockwave and the Scar of Nibelung simultaneously triggered at the end.
