Elder Geryon Knight summons a shockwave. The boss will lift its hand and emit a purple glow before executing the attack. Run around in a circle in order to dodge it.

Strategy

Summon Nightmare

Accumulate three bars of your Devil Trigger during the fight to call upon Nightmare. Not only does it distract the boss from aiming at you, the familiar can also dish out its own attacks to chip away at the boss’ health.

Get out of the Areas of Effect Quickly

Observe the boss’ gestures and escape from the circles to avoid their time altering effects.

Slow Wave

A wave spreads out and engulfs the area. Your movement speed will be greatly reduced if you are hit. To counter this, familiarize yourself with how the boss moves. When you see that the purple flame on the mount’s head has grown in size, quickly grab Griffon’s limbs and perform a long jump to dodge it.
