Scissors - Battle Strategy & Tips

Scissors Overall Tips

  • Don't break the blade cover
  • Jump & dodge its ultimate attack
  • Use the Ice Vellumental Power

Don't Break The Cover


You'll need to be careful not to break Scissors' blade cover (its sheath). Always aim for its green handle part when using your normal attacks. When the cover is finally broken, its sharp blade will be exposed and its attack will increase. Be particularly careful with your health at this point.

Jump & Dodge Final Cut


When you deal damage to the boss to a certain point, it will take off its cover and start using Final Cut, its ultimate blade attack. You can dodge Final Cut by jumping in a timely fashion!

Use Ice Vellumental Power


Summon the Ice Vellumental to freeze Scissors. Not only does this deal damage and stuns it, but it'll give you the perfect timing to use 1000 Fold Arms to finish the boss.

About Ring Boards

We are currently unsure what parts of the board will remain the same and what parts will change when different players attempt the same boss.There is a chance rings the rings you get may have slightly different tiles. Subsequent rings will also likely have different layouts depending on your previous moves!
