Zhang Jiao Lore
Zhang Jiao, hailing from Julu Commandery, is one of the leaders of the Yellow Turbans as well as the originator of Taiping Taoism.
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 Jiao, who had received Elixir from a black-clad Taoist, took on the title of "Great Sage Mentor," and began gathering adherents as he forced others to repent for their sins, and aided those who suffered from the disease. Eventually, his followers numbered in the hundreds of thousands and he took on the title of "General of Heaven." He bade his followers in all provinces to rise up, greatly disturbing the order and rulership of the imperial court.
The Yellow Turbans' uprising ensued in the provinces of You, Ji, and Yu among others, but were met with strong imperial opposition. In response to this, Zhang Jiao employed demons, demonized soldiers, and other infernal entities, keeping the imperial army at bay. Before long, however, his efforts saw a severe setback, when both Zhang Liang and Zhang Bao were slain by the militia, with the protagonist alongside them. When the imperial army closed in on his stronghold in Guangzong, Zhang Jiao, in a desperate move, drank the Elixir himself, knowing that doing so would submit himself to a demonic transformation. Even with such devotion to his ambition, this zealous leader perished before the might of the protagonist. The Yellow Turban Rebellion that had engulfed the citizenry and bureaucracy alike and left a giant scar upon the land had come to a close, at least for the time being.

Zhang Jiao Boss Strategy
Before you start this boss battle, make sure to rest at the Battle Flag and to equip the Cleanse spell and other equipment that you need. The Cleanse spell is important since it can negate the stun status effect that you may acquire during this battle. Zhang Jiao is somehow similar to his brother, Zhang Bao, he will need a few seconds to cast a sorcery spell, only this time, you're fighting against a sorcerer who can conjure thunder and lightning. Using the Divine Beast, Qilin is a good counter to interrupt his attacks. You just want to make sure you're near him before you trigger the skill. Absorb Vitality is also a good support spell to make sure you survive during battle, if you use the spell, you and your ally can recover HP when you damage an enemy. It's good to use as well early in the battle so that you don't have to use the Dragon's Cure Pot.
Most of Zhang Jiao's melee attacks are easy to read since he needs momentum before he swings his arm or the staff weapon. If you time it right, you can deflect the attacks. And speaking of deflecting attacks, you'll 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. Avoid his sorcery attacks as much as you can to avoid damage and stun buildup, watch his moves, and repeat the process to win this battle.
