Wo Long Fallen Dynasty Blindfolded Boy Lore
The Blindfolded Boy is a young man whose true identity is unknown. He currently resides in a small mountain village located in Langya Commandery, Xu Province. He turned up at the village after fleeing the fires of war that devastated his home. Although he has no family to rely on, he is on good terms with the villagers and manages to live a simple life despite the world remaining rife with conflict. He has a calm demeanor and keen intellect beyond his young years, meaning he isn't easily fazed. He is not fond of violence but will take up arms to protect himself.
In the chaos of the Yellow Turban Rebellion, the once—peaceful mountain village fell victim to raiding bandits. The boy and the villagers he fought bravely alongside were saved in their darkest hour by the protagonist. After succumbing to wounds he sustained while protecting the boy, the protagonist was resurrected through the power of the Jade. Together with the protagonist, they fought fiercely to defeat Zhang Liang, the General of Man, and his group of bandits. However, a Taoist in black disguised as the protagonist injected the boy with Elixir, turning him and his Divine Beast Yinglong into a demon. Now transformed into Xielong, he then threw the protagonist off a cliff.
Thanks to the remaining power left in the boy's lade, the protagonist was able to return to life after being killed by Xielong. After that, word spread of the Taoist in black appearing across the land atop Xielong. In Luoyang, the Demonic Qi that flowed through the city was used to create Elixir and summon Taotie. Having realized that the Divine Beast Yinglong was the key to perfecting the Elixir, the Taoist in black had turned it into Xielong to aid him in achieving his quest for eternal life. Xielong and the protagonist crossed paths numerous times, but their encounters were not enough to bring the boy back to his senses.
As the Battle of Guandu broke out, the Taoist in black, who was now revealed to be Yu Ji, made his way to the battlefield riding upon Xielong. His intention was to have Xielong absorb the massive quantity of Demonic Oi amassing over the battlefield in order to create the Ultimate Elixir. However, his plan was foiled by the protagonist. The desperate Yu Ji then produced an imperfect Elixir and coalesced with Xielong. With the sheer power of the Elixir, Xielong overwhelmed the protagonist, but at last fell before the protagonist's sword, which carried the blessings of all the Divine Beasts. Losing ties with Xielong, Yu Ji vanished, and the boy, now returned to his original form, traveled with the protagonist back to the mountain village in Xu Province.
The boy disappeared from the village while the protagonist was resting, only to return after some time with a disturbing grin on his face. His consciousness had been taken over by Yu Ji. A vicious fight between the two broke out, with the protagonist hesitating to deliver a fatal blow. The protagonist was finally able to strike after the boy broke through Yu Ji's control to offer words of encouragement. By virtue of the bond shared between them, Yinglong was restored to existence, consuming Yu Ji's Demonic Qi in the process. The boy swore an oath with the protagonist while basking in the radiant glow of Yinglong. With his newfound bravery instilled in him by the protagonist, he could clearly see his fate laid before him.

Blindfolded Boy Fight Strategy Wo Long
- Moves that help close the distance, such as Whistling Vortex, will help you keep being aggressive in this fight.
- Boss is agile, therefore proritize speed over damage.
- This boss will conjure spells of all elements
- With proper spell set-up, can be used both to our and his advantage.
- Chains his Fatal Strikes (outside Demonic Blast) up to 3 times, if previous strike was deflected.
- Full chain of deflections will likely break his Spirit and leave him open for Spirit Attack
- Very short window between first and second strike, medium between second and third, what can be used for Spirit Attack and potential Spirit depletion.
Being possessed by Yu Ji, the Blindfolded Boy will have some attacks you've seen in his boss fight and the fight against the Embodiment of Demonic Qi. The Blindfolded Boy mainly attacks with his sword, imbuing it with energies or simply performing basic slashes, but also has access to spells of multiple elements. He is both aggressive and evasive, giving you little room to deal damage of your own.
There are a few moves to take note of. One is a move where he glows red and flies up, then launches a large red orb of demonic energy towards you. Though you can dodge this hard-hitting move by running towards him, you'll actually want to be parrying this move. Doing so not only allows you to deal significant damage, but more importantly, this knocks him down for a few seconds, giving you a key window to get some big hits in.
Another move to look out for is when he flies up with his hands upwards and starts charging an attack. This can lead into one of three large AoE attacks, each dealing a different element. No matter the element, the AoEs tend to surround him, so run away from him when he's charging up this attack.
Finally, a move you need to be on the lookout for is the one where he glows red and raises the hand now carrying a sword. Following this, he does a short dash towards you and performs an unblockable attack, forcing you into an animation. This move deals significant damage and leaves you vulnerable after it. The dash for this move is quite short, so you should have no problem running away if you catch him charging up this move early. However, after he dashes, he lingers for a bit with his hand out and if you walk into his range during this time, you'll get caught by the attack anyway. Be wary of his movements and approach him only when you're sure he's done performing the move.
The Blindfolded Boy has a lot of variation in his attacks, but the attacks you really have to look out for don't have much variation, and can be predictable. Parry his moves as much as you can to deplete his spirit gauge and perform Fatal Strikes, and utilise gap-closing Martial Arts to give you more opportunities to attack when he evades.
