Octopath Traveler 2 Plukk Boss Guide

Plukk is the enemy boss that you will be facing in Chapter 2 of Castti’s storyline in Octopath Traveler 2. She is a mercenary who is seen with her two lackeys Mikk and Makk.

During the second chapter, Greg will hire her to intimidate you but she will have other plans which will involve her fighting you. After this, the Boss fight will ensue between Castti and Plukk in the game.

However, keep in mind that before facing Plukk and her allies your skill Level needs to be more than Level 18. The reason is that Plukk has heavy defenses and is guarded by her lackeys Mikk and Makk which prevent you from damaging her in the battle.

Defeating Plukk underlings “Mikk and Makk” will earn you the Soldiers Spear and Silver Hatchet. Similarly, by defeating the enemy boss Plukk, you will receive the “Drifting Dagger” as a reward for completing this boss fight in Octopath Traveler 2.

Plukk location

You will come across Plukk in Chapter 2 of Castti’s story. During this chapter, you will meet with a sick Rosa and depart north towards Winterbloom.

There you need to go into the bar. Once you reach the upper portion you will find Rosa’s daughter “Melia” being kidnapped by Greg who has hired Plukk and her underlings to dominate the situation.

Castle tries to reason with Greg, but he doesn’t listen and then Plukk shoves him aside and comes forward. As Castti tries to save Melia, Plukk and her lackeys Mikk and Makk will intercede and challenge her to a fight in Octopath Traveler 2.

How to defeat Plukk in Octopath Traveler 2

Facing Plukk is not an easy task since you will have to first deal with her lackeys Mikk and Makk. Both of them have 4 Shield Points (SP) and Plukk has 7 Shield Points(SP).

Your attacks won’t damage Plukk if you don’t deal with her underlings first. So you need to focus on them and proceed to attack them with Bow and Ice attacks. Using these constant attacks you will be able to break their shields and in doing so Plukk’s weakness will be unlocked for you.

Once you dealt with her lackeys you can then shift your attacks to breaking her SP. If you keep one of her lackeys barely alive then you can insert massive damage on her to break her defenses further.

So your plan should be to break her subordinates first which would leave Plukk open to your attacks, and this would break her with relative ease.

Finally, you can finish Plukk and her subordinates off by using Osvald’s staff attack (x4) paired with his Merchant Skills “Hired Help”. Using this skill you can deal the finishing blow on Plukk and win this Boss fight in Octopath Traveler 2.
