Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty Zhang Bao Lore
Zhang Bao, hailing from Julu Commandery, is one of the leaders of the Yellow Turbans. At the end of the Later Han period, amid the neutering of the Imperial Court due to political conflict between corrupt bureaucrats, floods, earthquakes, and rebellion were rampant. And, because powerful families took over much of the land, farmers lost their land and famine took hold. During this, Zhang Bao, along with his brothers, Zhang Jiao and Zhang Liang, received Elixir from a black—clad Taoist atop a mountain. With their newfound power, the three started a rebellion to unseat the corrupt House of Han and take power for themselves to realize their Yellow Heaven. Zhang Bao took on the title of "General of Earth," and tormented the imperial army using his fearsome sorcery.
Accompanying Zhang Jiao, he roamed across the land during the Yellow Turban Rebellion. While fortifying a Yellow Turban camp around Mt. Dongshan, he received word of his brother Zhang Liang's defeat at the hands of the protagonist. Following this, he continued to feud with the imperial army who strove to take Mt. Dongshan and brought the demon Zhuyan under his control to wipe out one of Gongsun Zan's scouting units. He managed to apprehend the Taoist Hong Jing who had been scouting the Yellow Turbans. He then released the demon Fengxi at the Yellow Turban's execution ground with the intent of sacrificing Hong Jing to the god Taiyi, but this plan was thwarted by the protagonist and Zhao Yun. With a menacing grin, Zhang Bao left Mt. Dongshan behind.
At Guigugou Valley, Zhang Bao unleashed his awe-inspiring sorcery onto the Liu Bei-led militia, who were on a punitive campaign against the Yellow Turbans, which effectively stupefied them and kept them in check. Upon injuring Liu Bei, he swung the fight in his favor, but owing to the protagonist's efforts, the tide of battle had turned and Zhang Bao soon lost the upper hand. He then retreated to the altar far in the depths of Guigugou Valley to await the protagonist, Guan Yu, and Zhang Fei. Despite demonstrating his sorcerous capabilities to overpower the protagonist's band, his final confrontation was ill-fated as the courageous trio would claim the tyrant's head. First Zhang Liang, then Zhang Bao, the pillars of the Yellow Turbans toppled one after the other, hastening their fall.

Zhang Bao Boss Strategy Guide
Zhang Bao relies on using sorcery and constantly teleports away from you so he can cast projectiles and cast spells, but do not be fooled since he is also capable of close-quarter combat but for the most part, he relies on his sorcery. For all his magical attacks, you will hear a chime sound from his bell before the sorcery attack occurs, meaning there is no specific indicator to identify what magical attack he uses, so please refer to the attacks table to identify how to counter his sorcery attacks. A good tactic here is to close the gap and attack him when you see him raise his hand to ring the bell, to continuously attack him, or use Qilin's Earthquake to interrupt him from casting a sorcery attack. If you do interrupt him, he will quickly teleport and try to cast another spell or just attack you with a fatal strike.
When his health is reduced to 60%, he gains additional attacks, while some sorcery attacks become enhanced. Some attacks like the single fireball now become multiple fireballs that travel fast. It's a matter of reacting to what spell he does if you do hear that chime so you know what to do next. A good way to punish him is if you can Deflect Counterattack his Fatal Strike move, he'll stumble if you successfully land it, making it easier to break his guard and use a Fatal Strike against him.
Do not be afraid to assess the situation and to take a step back if you need to recover HP, you have two Reinforcement characters here accompanying you in battle, let them help you and if Zhang Bao is busy attacking the NPCs, take the opportunity to attack him while he's not targeting you. The Absorb Vitality spell is very useful here since you're a team here when fighting Zhang Bao, by using it, you and your nearby allies can restore HP upon dealing damage to enemies.
When his HP drops to 30%, he will summon Demonized Warlock enemies around the battlefield which buffs his defense and boosts his attacks. Make sure to quickly eliminate the summoned units once they spawn to stop them from providing Zhang Bao with buffs. Watch its moves and repeat the process to defeat Zhang Bao.
