Mizutsune Boss Fight
The fight begins after a cutscene and throws you directly into the field against this giant beast.
Throughout the fight, you’ll be showered with the main attack of the boss and that is the Bewitching Bubbles and as mentioned before, one hit with this attack and you’re down to 50% health in no time. Apart from that, the boss uses Aqua shock in a head-to-head brawl.
Therefore, the best option is to keep refilling your health bar by using the health regenerating potion each time, you get hit by an attack. For the potion, you can head over to the skill list to find it.
With great power comes great weaknesses as well, and Mizutsune has a lot of them. Ranging from Body: Slashing/ Blunt and Legs: Slashing/ Blunt to Tail: Piercing. Focusing on these three can surely get you to victory.
As for your attacks, you’ll have to keep Ratha for head-to-head combat since it possesses a speed attack capable of overpowering Mizutsune. Also, following it up with Kyles Rapid Shot P can do wonders by lowering the boss’ health relatively faster than most attacks.
Next up is Riding Ratha which you can do with Leia by using the Sky-high Dive. Now follow it up by Kyle’s Meteor Shower, making it a deadly combo.
