Sludge Walkthrough Strategy

Sludge like
1Wash away the mud in enemy with water
2Attack the enemy's weak points with your weapon to bring them down.
3Focus your attacks on the weak points to deal damage and maximize your offensive potential.

Use Sidon Skills

Defend To Reduce Damage TakenWash Away The Mud

Once the battle against the Sludge-like enemy begins, you'll be able to use Sidon's skills. There are two main types of skills: defense and offense. When using the skill, Sidon envelops himself in water, which provides protection against enemy attacks. Furthermore, while in the skill state, attacking can also wash away the enemy and the surrounding mud.

Use The Bow To Hit The Enemy With Water And Wash Away The Mud

To wash away the enemy's mud, it is recommended to attack with a fused Bow. Use Water Fruit, Chuchu Jelly, or King's Scales on the Bow to safely wash away the enemy's mud from a distance. While Sidon's attacks can also wash away the mud, there is an increased risk of getting hit.

Attack With Your Weapon When The Weak Point Is Exposed

Once you've washed away the mud and the main body becomes visible, get close to the enemy and wait for the weak point to appear. When its weak point is exposed, attack with your weapon. Keep in mind that the weak point's position may shift slightly during the down motion, so be prepared to follow up with additional attacks.

Quickly Deal As Much Damage As Possible Once The Enemy Is Down

After the enemy is down, attack its weak point to inflict a significant amount of damage. Once the stun period is over, the enemy will return to its muddy state. Use the Bow again to attack and wash away the mud with water.

Water Temple Walkthrough Guide

Block Construct Battle Strategy Guide

1During battles, it transforms into three different forms.
1.Robot form
2.Cube form
3.UFO form
2Remove the glowing blocks using the Ultrahand.
3Attack the glowing blocks when they are down.

1. Robot Form Strategy

When facing the robot form with its intense attacks, exercise caution and pay attention to the enemy's actions while using the Ultrahand. Passing through the enemy's legs makes it harder to get hit. Moreover, take advantage of the brief pause in the enemy's actions following a big swinging attack to remove the glowing blocks.

2 Cube Form Strategy

In the cube form, the enemy rolls around, making it difficult to align your aim with the glowing blocks. While keeping track of the current location of the glowing blocks, try to maneuver around to the front and use the Ultrahand.

3. UFO Form Strategy

When in its UFO form, it will shoot five blocks from above. Descend and use Recall on the descending block to board it and head towards the main body. Also, be aware that on the Floating Scales Island, your jumping power is increased, making it difficult to land on the blocks while pressing the X button. So, try to proceed straight without pressing any buttons to board the blocks. Once you're on top of the UFO, you can attack the glowing blocks directly.

Attack The Glowing Blocks When They Are Down

When you take off the blocks and bring them down, they scatter around. Follow the glowing blocks and attack them with your weapon. However, be careful not to hit other blocks, as it will deplete the durability of your weapon.
