Taishi Ci Fight Strategy Wo Long
Taishi Ci is found in a round arena with 2 additional reinforcements. Players will need to face. 2 phases of the boss fight with him. His powers and attacks are enhanced by the second round.
He wields a long icy sword and can deal a number of icy AoE attacks. His great figure gives him a long reach He can be staggered when approached aggressively. He has agile movements and can deal a number of back-to-back melee attacks with his sword. Taishi Ci will begin with a few basic sword melee attacks such as striking and sweeping with his blade. You can dodge or back away as soon as you see him pull back his sword in anticipation for the attack.
Once he reaches the second phase, his AoE attacks become more predictable you will see them coming as they expand outwards. He has a number of new crystal or ice AoE attacks that are marked on the ground before they inflict damage. These attacks also have general patterns. Avoid the marks of ice or stay away from his line of sight to stay out of his directional ice attacks or ice shards. If you keep a distance, this should give you enough time to run out of the path of damage or the area of effect as soon as the attack begins. This will also avoid any unexpected immediate attacks if you avoid staying in close proximity since a lot of his attacks in phase two move outwards. You may notice these attacks move from in to out as they expand away from him depending on the type of attack. Watch for indicators for the beginning of an attack. Sometimes you'll see him begin to summon ice crystals just before they begin to land.
Throughout the fight, move quickly and dodge often. Take advantage of the boss arena space and it will make you less of an easy target. Pick up your reinforcements when they're down and attack together to quickly deplete Taishi's HP bar until he is defeated.
