The Royal Claymore is a weapon that can be obtained by anyone regardless of the progress of the game at the top of Woodland Tower. It is a two-handed sword, which is difficult to handle, but its attack power is as high as 52 in the initial state, which is very useful even if not in the early stage. Another good point is that it revives when the Red Moon appears, so it will be easier in boss battles if you have it.

Fireblight Ganon can be stunned more easily than others, and you can aim at his eyeballs with a Bow, but the easiest way is to hit him twice in a row with a Remote Bomb: the first hit will stun him in the air, and the second hit will stun him completely. If you hit him with a high-attack weapon during this moment, you can easily reduce his HP.

The boss attacks by swinging a large sword, but his motion is slow and relatively easy to avoid. Although each sweep is large, he needs to take time for the next sweep, aim at the gap between his sweep attacks to stun him. If you are confident in your skill, you can attack with a Flurry Rush.

Right after the Second Phase begins, the boss will create a barrier, which can be destroyed with a Remote Bomb. Throw a Remote Bomb into the barrier when it starts turning like a vacuum. When the barrier is destroyed, the boss will be stunned at the same time, you must hit him immediately.

All attacks with the big sword will have the effect of spreading flames. Be careful not to get hit, as the flames will spread a little larger over time than where they generate.

It Can Be A Chance To Attack With Updrafts

Since the flames will generate updrafts, If you fly into the air with Paraglider, you will have a chance to attack with arrows in slow motion. It'd be easier to stun him with a bow than in the first phase, so try when you have the chance.

It Is Safe To Destroy The Fireball With Ice Arrow

Ganon will throw fireballs at Link. You can run away by hiding behind a shield, but you might take blast damage over a wide area from the explosion point. If you hit the ball with an Ice Arrow, you can break it without a blast, so it is safe to use it if you have any left.

You Can Also Use Perfect Guard To Bounce The Ball Back

The Shield Ability Perfect Guard can be used to bounce the ball back to the enemy. This can inflict damage and stun him at the same time, try it if you can aim for it. But be careful, if you are too close to Blight Ganon, you will be damaged by the blast.

Hide From The Laser Beams Or Aim For The Stun
