Shichimen Warrior Combat Tips

Cannot Be Deathblown

Cannot Be Deathblown

Shichimen Warrior is one of the few bosses you can't Deathblow. However, getting close before triggering the fight has an advantage as it allows you to get in a few hits on the get go, as in the case of the one in Fountainhead Palace.

All Three Has The Same Moveset

All three Shichimen Warriors have the same moveset. The same strategy will apply on all three.

Has An Instant Terror Death Beam

Has An Instant Terror Death Beam

One of the moves to watch out for is his beam attack which can cause rapid buildup of the Terror gauge. Filling it up will cause instant death.

Get Up Close To Deal Damage

Get Up Close To Deal Damage

Shichmen Warrior tends to jump and teleport around the map which gives this fight quite a challenge. Chase after him always to be able to deal damage.

Refresh Divine Confetti & Pacifying Agent

Make sure to refresh items needed in this fight. Don't let them wear out else you'll take Terror buildup more, and without Divine Confetti you won't be able to deal damage.
