Dian Wei Boss Strategy, Tips and Tricks

Once entering the arena, a cut scene will show Dian Wei consuming an elixir and transforming into a demon. Dian Wei in his demon form has a lot of attack combinations and types compared to Dian Wei in his human form.

Some of his notable attacks are performed in the air. Such as, summoning several electric tornados around the area as well as homing electric balls. Players will need to dodge out of the way of the tornados but can deflect the electric balls. He can also shoot lasers from his tail, this attack can also be deflected.

When you get Dian Wei to before half health, he will take out his horns and use them as weapons. This is phase 2. During this phase, he will have the same moveset as phase 1 and some movesets from his human form but more aggressive. Notable attacks in phase 2, is when he spins towards you and goes up to perform a slam attack as he comes back down. Dian Wei also uses his tail to suck the area and whips it at you. Players will have to either dodge his attacks or deflect them as much as possible, especially when he performs his attacks in the air. Sometimes when he tries to get back up, he will perform a spin attack that will deal damage to players within melee distance. Lastly, Dian Wei will head up into the sky and charge his attack then lands on the players dealing high damage. For this attack, players can dodge, block, or deflect this attack.

The Best Wizardry SpellsMartial Arts and more for Dian Wei:

  • Strategy-wise, the most similar encounter is demonized Liu Bei, as they are both Wood-themed bosses and are airborne,
  • Before fight, equip armor with high Wood resistance to mitigate some damage.
  • Bring Poison Throwing Knifes to quickly inflict Metal. Alternatively, Fire can also be a good call to chip down his health bar.
  • Equip any Metal-related offensive spell to make fight easier.
  • During 1st phase, guard is as important as deflection, since most of his attacks deal Physical damage only.
  • If player has Negate Attribute Damage upon Guard equipped on weapon, can guard some Wood-related attacks without receiving damage.
    • During 2nd phase, some of his melee attacks deals Wood damage too. Therefore, deflection is more important than guard (which can still be useful in certain situations).
  • Boss is very agile, therefore prioritize speed over damage. 
  • Boss is large, therefore spells with large numbers of projectiles like Ominous Chill can be useful.
  • Set "Focus on Target" to Enabled, so camera will follow Dian Wei as he likes to float in air a lot.
