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.
