View Full Version : The Path to the Great Palace Boss Battle

Does anyone have a strategy for this fight on nightmare difficulty?

I killed the guys before you lift the first gate and got a brand new 2 handed axe, and when I reached the boss fight I just went into curse mode, ignored the soldiers going straight for the boss and spammed the X button. I didn't have to parry a single attack, and he seemed to be stunned after each combo (and any soldiers that came near got whacked away).

After the cutscene that puts you in full curse mode, I did the same thing and he died very quickly (didn't have to do the burning button spam at all).

Thanks. I was getting very frustrated trying to kill all of his henchmen.

So followed the button mashing strategy for this boss and well... worked perfectly. Beat it in about a minute after having failed it three times before.

So yeah, anyone having trouble with this battle just get your hands on a two handed axe, ignore everyone but the boss, and button mash away.
