Wo Long Fallen Dynasty Yu Ji Lore
The Taoist in Black is of an unknown origin. Although almost a hundred years old, he remains in good health thanks to the Elixir's effects. Adept in the manipulation of evil Demonic Qi, he drastically differs from other Taoists who seek enlightenment through inherently good Wizardry Spells. He clings desperately to the ideal of the Elixir and what it will help him achieve and will eliminate anyone who hinders his quest. He is able to disguise himself as other people and take advantage of the bonds they share with others. He has no regard for human life or the fate of those who become demons, doing whatever he must to complete his quest.
The Taoist in Black stoked the fires of chaos by giving Elixir to the Yellow Turbans to create a distraction as he searched for the one possessing the eternal Elixir Field who would be able to serve as a vessel for the Ultimate Elixir. Upon finding a boy he believed to have potential, he ambushed him, turning him into Xielong so that he could control him. In Guangzong, he coaxed Zhang Jiao into using Elixir, and in Luoyang, he manipulated Zhang Rang into collecting Qi, an ingredient of Elixir. These actions served to spread chaos even further throughout the land. Noting Dong Zhuo's ambitious nature, he hinted at the power of the Elixir, inciting further turmoil. The true purpose of all this warmongering was to amass enough Demonic Qi to create the Ultimate Elixir.
In order to see his scheme through, the Taoist in Black, now identified as Yu Ji, continued to spread the fires of war across the land. He was able to summon Taotie through Xielong by absorbing the immense amount of Demonic Qi that had amassed in Luoyang. At the Battle of Hulaoguan Pass, he saw that Sun Jian possessed power rivaling that of a demon and tried to sway him to join his cause during the siege on Xiangyang. Seeing that Sun Jian had no interest in joining him, Yu Ji had him shot with an Elixir-laced arrow. His plans were almost thwarted by Lu Bu at Xiapi until he used the Elixir to turn the tables.
Furthermore, he coaxed Yuan Shao into starting a battle at Guandu that divided the land and used demons to kill Sun Ce who was trying to avenge his father. At this point, it seemed that nobody could stop Yu Ji's rampage of terror.
By creating the Ultimate Elixir and turning the world into an immortal realm, conflict would become a thing of the past. To put a stop to this delusional ideal, the protagonist stood bravely against Yu Ji. Keen to utilize the protagonist's power, Yu Ji tried to sway him to his cause, but the protagonist simply readied his weapon in refusal. Powered by the Elixir, Yu Ji seemed to have the upper hand but began to lose ground before the might of the bonds that the protagonist had forged with so many great heroes. In a desperate last struggle, Yu Ji merged with Xielong but was defeated in one mighty blow by the Divine Beast—blessed protagonist. However, determined not to give up until the bitter end, Yu Ji possessed the blindfolded boy in an attempt to play on the protagonist's emotions, but was ultimately destroyed thanks to the unshakable bond the two had formed. And so, the dream of an immortal realm was shattered once and for all.

- Wear your strongest Light Armor with high Defense so that you are nimble during the boss battle and to increase your defense against his attacks.

Yu Ji Boss Strategy
This boss battle has two phases, first, you'll fight against Yu Ji himself, and later, he merges and transforms into a demonic being, the Embodiment of Demonic Qi. As the battle starts, be ready to dodge his icicle attacks, Yu Ji is one of the agile bosses you'll encounter and he will always try to close the gap between the two of you and will try to grab you. The key here is to watch when he tries to get close to you, and if you dodge at the right time, you can counterattack.
You'll also want to make sure you get the chance to use Deflect Counterattack when you see him use a Fatal Strike. The Fatal Strike happens when you see the boss or enemy glow red. A successful Deflect Counterattack briefly stuns the target, making it possible for follow-up attacks.
Yu Ji as a master in wielding dark sorcery can conjure the different elements against you. He also shoots out multiple toxic orbs that travel fast and eventually land on the floor. Simply avoid these until it disappears. Yu Ji can also conjure bolts of lightning that spreads from him, this can be dodged. Occasionally, he will fly in the air and conjure a large red orb at you, again, you can only dodge this. This battle is manageable if you're careful and if you attack at the right moment, you can stagger him, eventually beating his human form.
A good spell to use is Absorb Vitality to buff yourself, causing HP regeneration every time you attack your target. And Lightning Weapon imbues lightning to your weapon, which causes Stun to build up, pair this with the Martial Arts skill Whistling Vortex, and you'll surely be able to stun and break his guard.
