Hello,

i am playing Octopath traveler demo and i choose primerose as a character.
I am at the boss (herugenishu?) after the underground pasasge and.....i haven't been able to kill it so far, he seems to have a TON of hp.
i haven't optimized 100% my actions in the fight but it seems strangely more hard than what came before in the cave.

Is there something i am missing?
Also, even if the weakness is normal attack, is there a point to do normal attacks since shadow attack do so much more damage? a normal attack does like 20 damage, a shadow one 100.

thank you for your help

I thought it was quite easy. You can do it if you have enough healing items. I'm not sure if you can get better gear in that path (in the demo at least), but it can be done without it. Just stock up well for the battle.

If I remember correctly, what I did was use the multi-target spell until the lackeys were dead (they don't respawn), defend until the boost meter was full, use boost to quadruple attack for a guard break, then single-target spell using the remaining boost. Rinse and repeat, healing when necessary. I only barely won, though, so there might be a better way.

Available for online play around 7-10PM UK time most weekdays, whenever on weekends.

thank you

do ennemies take more damage when they are "break"? and should i use the normal attack (if it is their weakness) in this state?

You need to hit Helgenish hard only when he breaks. First you need to hit him with your dagger three times using boost. Then defend or heal until you have most or all of your boost points back. Break him by attacking one more time with your dagger, proceed by doing major damage with a boosted Moonlight Waltz attack.

If you still have a hard time go back to seduce the old man in the middle of the plaza and bring him to the boss fight, he does a lot of additional damage.

thank you thank you!
after an ennemy is break, if i wait too much without attacking he will regain the shield status right?

Yup after an enemy breaks you only have one turn to do extra damage, that's why it's better to save some boost points.

Being a high enough level also helps a lot. I couldn't beat him at all until I went back and grinded until I was around level 5 or 6.

i defeated him:)
going all in when he was in "break" state was the key, the difference in damage is astronomical! i think i did a 1220 or something on one boosted shadow attack.
i don't know though wherease it is faster to break an ennemy with the shadow attack even if his weakness is the sword (comparing with just attacking with the sword)...^^

i'm sad that the demo is over with primerose (i want to see what is next!!) although it seems i can explore some areas!!
i'm going to play the other character but i think it will be hard to top Primerose chapter, it was fantastic with those enchanting musics!!

i'm afraid to look at the release date because i think it is still a long way before the game will release

thank you for your helps :)
