Shichimen Warrior Combat Tips
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
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
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.
Shichimen Warrior Attacks
|Spirit Projectiles||Sends out a flurry of terror spirit projectiles at you which can cause terror build up. Run to the side to evade|
|Spirit Ball Charge Up||He raises his staff to charge a ball of terror spirits to fall on you|

|Terror Beam||Run to the side to evade this move. Usually done after teleport|
|Jump||When close, he tends to jump around and move away|
|Staff Swipe||He swipes his staff when you're close. Can be deflected|
Run to the side to evade this move and try to get up close as he does this move so you can deal damage.
Spirit Ball Charge Up
He raises his staff to charge up a ball of terror spirits. Dealing enough damage will disrupt this attack.
After taking enough damage, he'll slowly fade out and move to another location. Be quick to find him, as this is followed up a the Terror Beam.
Simply run to the side to avoid this move. However, the fight in Fountainhead will make this a bit difficult since the river is narrow.
He will jump around after taking damage to move away.
When up close, he'll swing his staff. This is a slow attack so time your parry well to deal posture damage.
