Sun Jian (Boss) Fight Strategy Wo Long

The Best Wizardry Spells, Martial Arts, and more for Sun Jian (Boss):

  • Start with inflicting Metal debuff
  • Using the Lightning Weapon spell to enchant your weapon with lightning will dramatically improve your damage toward Sun Ce. Alternatively, players can also consider using Flame Weapon to deal Burn damage instead. 
  • If available the Bursting Fireball is a good choice when facing multiple opponents in a small space. Casting this Wizardry Spell hurls a terrifying fireball that will split into multiple fireballs and explode after reaching a certain distance or hitting an enemy or terrain.
  • Mighty Shockwave can also be used to Unleashes a shockwave around you that will blow away nearby enemies to clear your immediate vicinity. 


To begin combat approach your duelling partners in front of you. Your combat encounter with Sun Jian will be a 2 on 1 spar with this father-son duo. They will be standing across the room at the start of the spar mission. Sun Ce will be standing in front for this duel so combat will commence with Sun Ce first. During this initial phase, deplete his HP as much as possible before Sun Jian joins in battle. 

Sun Ce (Boss)

As you approach, Sun Ce will close the distance by charging in and then attempting to land an attack once he gets in range. He will wield his Tiger Fang Dual Halberds that can also be thrown for longer range combat. He has a few basic melee combat actions that can be dealt in one combo. This is a series of slashing, striking and stabbing. He also has a jumping attack where he lunges forward and ends his landing with a strike. He can quickly follow this attack by jumping backwards, so if you intend to attack at this time anticipate his repositioning. You can find an attack window in between his flurry of attacks when he exhausts his stamina and briefly has an ideal period. If you hit him during this time, it'll be easier to knock him back or knock him down, lengthening your window for damage. Take an aggressive approach before the next phase with Sun Jian. An aggressive approach will force Sun Ce into defense, and will not give him an opportunity to retalliate. 

Sun Jian (Boss)

When Sun Jian (Boss) joins the battle, you will face them both at the same time. It is suggested that you keep moving for this section of the fight to avoid getting cornered by both enemies. Circle around as you deal your attacks. Sun Jian uses a Guding Blade in combat and has a three step combo that is a combination of attacking and advancing. He can lunge forward while stabbing with his blade, bu can also be knocked back in between these attacks. He also has the ablilty to circle around and reposition while ending this motion with a slash. Carefully try to reposition yourself so that you are not surrounded and do not take damage from both at the same time. Take turns dealing attacks at each one, but try to focus on clearing one quickly so that you no longer have to face two bosses at the same time. Clearing them both will result in a Glorious Victory and additionally you will gain their gear.

Sun Jian Demon Form Fight Strategy Wo Long

The Best Wizardry Spells, Martial Arts, and more for Sun Jian (Boss):

  • Since Sun Jian aligns with the Metal element so players can consider equipping any Fire Phase Spells since Fire melts Metal
    • Alternatively, Water and Stone can also be useful.
  • Using the Focus Zone spell will give you an advantage in terms of additional damage since boss fight arena is small.


Sun Jian in Demon Form is a Tiger-like demon who is triple the size of a person but has the agility of one. This boss is a bit hard to anticipate due to its agility and size. One of the normal combos that Sun Jian in demon form uses is the two-punch combo with its claws when you and your reinforcements are swarming him in close-range. Another normal attack it does is a tail swipe, he uses this to keep you from a distance. When Sun Jian reaches 50% HP, his demon will start to go berserk, making his attacks faster with the frequent use of combos. At this phase, he'll be Charging and spinning more frequently and will be roaring with damage as a last resort.

To beat Sun Jian, you'll have to try hard enough to anticipate its attacks, so that you can dodge them. When you get a small window, go ahead and attack along with your reinforcements. At some point, Sun Jian will be stunned, which gives you ample time to deal damage. This boss isn't too tanky, so you'll find it a bit easier to deal damage. Lastly, when you're low on health, let your reinforcements to the attacking first until you've somehow regained health.
