When the fight begins, attack the glowing cubes when they turn red using Dark Lance while avoiding or guarding against the projectiles coming. A good strategy to hit the cubes when they are red is to hold your guard up while standing still and wait until the cube comes around. Attack them with Dark Lance to destroy them.
The cubes will eventually fall to the sand pit below and reform as a giant humanoid figure. Guard against the boss’ incoming shockwave attack. Afterwards, keep moving while staying away from the glowing blue hand blocks until a cutscene triggers.
After the cutscene, dodge away from the boss’ shockwave attacks. This time, the boss’ hands will glow red when they hit the ground, making them vulnerable to attacks. After you destroy both block hands, the boss will change form.
As with the first phase of the fight, attack the red cubes with magic. Stay on the move and move sideways to avoid the rotating lasers. When the attack gauge appears, use charged Dark Lance to finish off the boss.
