  • The Zhu Yan is a huge ape-like demon. It is described in the western mountain section of the Classic of Mountains and Seas as being white-necked, red-legged, and living on Mt. Xiaocishan where white gemstones and copper can be found. Its appearance is said to herald the coming of a ruinous war, and so it is feared as an ominous creature. A taoist of the Yellow Turbans had tamed it through the use of elixir, and used it to kill Gongsun Zan's scouts on the mountain, as well as Zhao Yun's subordinate.

      Biggest tip I can give for this fight is stand right in front on him and BLOCK his regular attacks, then attack him in the windows between his combos. Only worry about deflecting his fatal attacks. I was nowhere with this boss until I stopped trying to deflect his regular attacks.

        he´s pretty weak against stone. Imposing slab will melt him with enough stone attack and stone damage.

        In NG+ in Tale of Guiguzi I have ~400 Stone Attack ~+13% stone damage, I buff myself with Amplify damage run behind him when he spawns use life withers and 2 imposing slabs, wait, he will then use is aoe thorn attack thing everytime deflect that and 2 (if a pillar of one Imposing Slabs missed you need 3) Imposing Slabs and he´s dead no fatal strike needed.
