Boss Pensieve Guardian Walkthrough

Damage Spells Attack Pattern

  • Trampling AoE Shock Wave
  • Color Orb Attack
  • After Color Orb, Magic Orb
  • After Down, AoE Shock Wave

Similar to Percival Rackham's Trial, its attack damage pattern is simple and can be easily countered once you get used to it.

Color 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.
