Boss Battle Strategy

When fighting Xieshi you will only have Yuri and Zhuzhen. Your items will be sealed, so the battle needs to be won before either character becomes berserk.

Before the battle begins, equip both Yuri and Zhuzhen with Bell Bracelets to prevent Silence. The battle is winnable without them, but more difficult.

For the best defense against Xieshi’s attack, Yuri should transform into Inferno. He should primarily deal physical damage.

Zhuzhen should use Nourishing Potion where necessary as items will not be available. If everyone has high HP, he should attack with physical moves or Life Sucker if he has learned it.
