Boss Guides List


Attack Details Countermeasure
Lance Slash Raises its lance vertically before slashing down in front of it. Guard or dodge to the side.
Lance Swipe Performs a horizontal sweep in front of it with its lance. Guard or dodge away.
Lance Charge Raises its arms in rage before charging from a distance with its lance. Guard or dodge to the side.
Shield Self Jumps up before assuming a defensive stance that negates all incoming attacks. Attack a different target.


Attack Hansel and Gretel from behind with Dark Blast and melee attacks to damage them. Tapping (instead of charging) on the Dark Blast attack is recommended, allowing you good mobility while bombarding them from afar. You can also time your guard and counterattack if you choose to take them head-on which will cause them to get knocked down and open to follow-up attacks. When any of the bosses puts up a shield around them, turn your attention to the other one without a shield and unload on them.

When the attack gauge appears on one of the bosses, use Dark Blast. This allows you to learn Dark Lance that is strong enough to finish the weakened boss. Afterwards, focus on the remaining one (they will summon some shades that you will need to take care of). Use Dark Blast on the shades to take them out quickly.

Once the remaining boss is alone, employ the same strategy used on the first one and attack with Dark Lance when the attack gauge appears to defeat them.
