Wo Long Taotie Lore
Taotie is a giant demon that has the face of a man and the torso of a sheep.
When the anti—Dong Zhuo coalition arrived at Luoyang, they found the city already in ruins and the area teeming with Demonic Qi. Taotie was created from the vast supply of Demonic Qi absorbed by Xielong there. It possesses huge feet that can demolish entire villages in mere moments, with an Elixir Field that pulses in terrifying blood—red, and most horrifically, has numerous beastly faces and claws jutting out of its body in every direction. Faced with this demonic menace, lords across the land were rendered speechless and the residents of Luoyang despaired.
Taotie devours all things below the sun, living or inanimate. While possessing immense strength, it has an abhorrent cunningness, singling out the old and frail from a group as its prey. According to the Spring and Autumn Annals, Taotie was born into the Jinyun clan, who served the Yellow Emperor in the Mythical Era. It is told that Emperor Shun deemed it one of the "four evil creatures of the world" for its savagery and banished it far to the west. In the Classic of Mountains and Seas, it is referred to as Pao Xiao, a monster with a man's face and sheep's body that ate humans.

Taotie Fight Strategy Wo Long
- Since Taotie can spit out balls of fire that has a large AoE, the Wizardry Spell: Cleanse can be used to reset all current negative effect accumulation to zero for you and your nearby allies, while granting a positive effect that reduces the amount of negative effect accumulation for all Phases except for Metal. This will help counter the Burn effect.
- Since this is a boss battle that requires dealing a lot of hits, consider equipping Absorb Vitality. This will benefit both you and your reinforcement, Liu Bei. You and your nearby allies can restore HP upon dealing damage to enemies.
- Has very high Spirit gauge, but when is broken is open for a critical attack dealing significant damage.
- In both phases, focus on Spirit Damage more than on direct damage.
Taotie may begin his fight by dealing his initial attack that inflicts Burn. As soon as the battle begins, quickly distance yourself from he center of the arena. Wait for the pool of fire to disperse before quickly charging in on his hooves since this is the main part of Taotie that is reachable. Focus your attack on the closest hoof. A lot of his attacks during this phase will also involve contact with his hoof. This means while attacking this area, you can also watch out for any incoming attacks as he either raises his hoof for a stomp or jumps up in the air. Taotie generally moves quite slowly so it will be easy to reach or dodge out of the damage area before these attacks land. Stay close by in order to immediately return to hacking at his hoof.
After a dealing some damage, Taotie may fall. You'll find it completely frozen for a short period. At this point you will need to locate its core. This glows bright red. The first location may be somewhere accessible on his legs or arms. Attack the core and this will take out a large chunk of its health. After the first core attack, he will start jumping more and moving his feet around more. Continue to focus your attacks on hi hooves until he once again falls. This time, you will be able to climb him. Start from the legs and reach the core on its back. This will start the next phase.
Demonic Qi will quickly shoot from the ground and he will do a quick spin and start his weeping attacks while on its belly, also allowing it to crawl on its limbs. This time attack its limbs or its body from its side but be careful as to not be crushed when it crawls. Eventually, the same thing will happen and Taotie will fall. This time the core will be on the gaping crater in what looks like an open mouth on its back. Go there and perform a critical attack to finish the battle.
