Use Stealth If You Don't Like Combats
If you are not good at combats with multiple enemies at once, you may use a strategy where you will need to sneak behind enemies one by one and eliminate them. Defeat them quickly with Accio and Incendio, then wait for the next target Disillusionment.

Boss Pensieve Guardian Strategy
Damage Spells Attack Patterns
- Trampling AoE Shock Wave
- Color Orb Attack
- After Color Orb, Magic Orb
- After Down, AoE Shock Wave
Its attack damage pattern is very straight forward and can be easily countered when you get used to it.
Elemental orbs can be destroyed and flinched by hitting them with spells that match their color. You can distinguish spells with their color like red for Damage Spells, yellow for Levioso, and purple for Accio.
Evasion → Damage Spells Are Basic
Take advantage of the resting time that occurs after the Trampling and Orbs, to attack the Guardian. After you destroy the orbs, it is recommended to take the down with Ancient Magic.
Elements To Be Unlocked After Completing
After completing the trial, talk to Charles Rookwood, and at this time the Exploration element "Traces of Ancient Magic" will be released. You can increase your Ancient Magic meter, so try it out if you see it on the map!
