Weapons Available From Hinox Necklace

Even without defeating the Hinox, it is also possible to retrieve weapons when you want to while it is sleeping or eye-like weak spots to bring it down. Weapons vary according to the progression of play, with the highest level being the Royal Broadsword.

How To Defeat Hinox

  • Aim for the eye with a bow.
  • Focus your attack on its feet.
  • When it wakes up, move away and attack the eyeball again.

Target The Eye With A Bow And Attack

The weak spot of the Hinox is its eye. If you manage to land even a single hit, it will be stunned for a few seconds. Therefore, keep your distance and aim for the eye with a bow to attack.

It Can Be Easily Incapacitated By Using Bomb Flowers

You can easily capture it by fusing Bomb Flower to an arrow if you have a large amount of it. In addition to dealing a large amount of damage with one shot, you can be knocked down forever just by hitting an upright.

Focus Your Attack On Its Feet To Knock It Down

If you have a large quantity of arrows, it's fine to continue attacking from a distance. However, if you want to conserve them as much as possible, after getting knocked down, rush to the enemy's position and inflict damage with close-quarters attacks. Since the knocked down state lasts for about 5 seconds, it is recommended to repeat the cycle of getting knocked down, attacking, disengaging before getting up, and using arrows to keep the enemy knocked down.

Attack The Side Without The Greaves

Since no damage can be inflicted on legs with greaves, focus on attacking those without the leg gear.

You Basically Can't Be Hit By An Attack If You're Running

Hinox creatures have very limited long-range attacks. If you sprint at full speed, you can generally avoid Hinox's attacks, so when they get up, try to create distance by sprinting at full speed.
