Strategy

Water Resistance

While Namielle is able to use both water and thunder attacks, its moves with the former element have more range. Focus on stacking as much water resistance as you can. Water resistance jewels and the waterproof mantle are also ideal for mitigating even more elemental damage. Eat a veggie platter at the canteen as well.

Stun Resistance

Having stun resistance increases your survivability, especially when Namielle manages to connect with two hits in a row. The easiest way to activate the skill is with stun charm III. Stun resistance jewels are also viable if your equipment slots can accommodate them.

Nullberies

Expect to be curing yourself of waterblight and thunderblight frequently throughout the fight. Max out your supply of nullberries in your loadout.

Flashpods

Bring flashpods and flashbugs to force Namielle to the ground when it goes airborne. This allows you to get in a few attacks as it tries to get up.

Stay on the Move

Namielle’s combat style is focused on flooding the area around it. It will then charge itself with electricity. In this state, Namielle can zap affected areas, dealing massive damage if you are caught in them. The water, however, will evaporate after being electrified.

Attacking Namielle from behind while repositioning yourself when it faces you is a good strategy. Most of its water-based attacks can be avoided by dodging to its side. You can also perform a superman dive at the last second to evade its water beams. Remember to keep an eye on flooded areas when Namielle is charged.

Namielle can also unleash a torrent of water that hinders movement if you step on it. Quickly move out it as the monster can set you up for a follow-up attack.
