O'Rin of the Water Boss Fight Tips
Initiate Battle With Powerful Charged Thrust

Do Long Guards To Protect Against Attacks

Corrupted Monk Boss Fight Battle Strategy
Corrupted Monk Boss Fight Tips
Keep Distance To Trigger Monk's Jump Moves
The Corrupted Monk has many attacks and very little openings for you to counter. It's best to keep your distance and trigger the Monk's jump moves - attacks that give you an opening to deal hits of your own.
Corrupted Monk Boss Moves & Attacks
Continuous Spin Attacks
This move can be blocked by deflecting or avoided by keeping your distance. If you can time your deflects well, you'll be able to put in a couple of counter attacks.
Perilous Attack - Forward Thrust Attack
Since this Perilous Attack cannot be deflected, step-dodge or jump to the side. When you're able to successfully avoid this attack, you can attack the Corrupted Monk with a few strikes.
Perilous Attack - 360 Degree Spin
The Corrupted Monk will spin 360 degrees and you can avoid getting hurt by jumping above the spear.
The Corrupted Monk will jump up and strike down with their spear. You can dodge this step-dodge to the left or right. You can also parry and do a counterattack. Since the Corrupted Monk will take time for its next attack after this move, you can put in a couple of hits.
