7 You will need to move more blue blocks out of the way to go through another series of connected rooms.

Nier’s Village

1 After talking to Popola, exit the library.
2 Head to the Junk Heap.


Gretel (Second Encounter)

Gretel’s flaming orb projectiles can be destroyed using melee attacks (preferably a spear). You can also just run to her side to avoid getting hit. You can also get in a good counterattack after destroying her orb projectiles by doing a forward thrust with your spear.

Gretel (Second Encounter) Boss Guide

Take out the shades first when Gretel summons them using melee attacks or lure them to the sunlight to kill them fast (this will force her to deactivate her shield). Unload on her with magic you should be able to reduce her health quickly for the attack gauge to appear. Focus all attacks on her for a cutscene to play.

After the cutscene, Gretel will gain a very fast spinning attack that moves her around the area very quickly. Run and dodge around to avoid her path of attack and jump just before she hits you to avoid taking damage (this can be very tricky to do so be sure to heal when necessary). Continue chipping away at her health until the attack gauge appears again and aim at it for another cutscene. The attack gauge should be visible again for one final time, allowing you tio finish off Gretel.

Shade Kaine

Shade Kaine will mostly use orb projectiles as her main method of attack which you can destroy, guard against or dodge away from. When you are close enough, she will throw out a three-hit sword combo which can be evaded by running away from her or moving behind her.

Shade Kaine Boss Guide

A good strategy for this fight is to attack her with melee and Dark Hand when she is close enough (preferably after she misses with her sword combo) and use charged Dark Lance from afar. She will also jump around and cling to the walls while shooting more orbs at you. Aim at her with a charged Dark Lance to make her fall down. Follow-up with melee attacks or Dark Hand and she will eventually do down.
