Breaking all 4 Barriers will stun Black Beast, do so quickly using Gambits or strong Combat Arts and you can then attack it heavily.

  • Gambits will go through
  • Barrier reactives after some time
  • Breaking the barrier confuses the Black Beast (stops it from countering)
  • Stuns the Black Beast after all barriers are broken

Watch Out For Area-of-Effect "Thorns of Ruin"

Watch Out For Area-of-Effect Damage

The Black Beast will unleash a wide-range "Thorns of Ruin" attack once in a while, its area marked by the red coloring on the floor. Keep your weaker characters away from this.

Lured It With Gambit To Control "Thorns of Ruin"

Black Beast will focus on whoever that used Gambit on it, meaning you can lure the Black Beast to face away from your main group, as in the image above, and control which area "Thorns of Ruin" will hit.
