These buffs can be accessed by Joker (from other Personas) and Skull. Another option is by using Heat Riser for an all-in-one buff. This special buff can be accessed by Joker (from other Personas) and Wolf.

Use Elec, Bless, and Curse Attacks

Persona 5 Strikers - Osaka Jail Dire Shadow War-Hungry Horseman Eligor Use Curse Attacks

Eligor is weak against Electricity, Bless, and Curse attacks so a composition with Skull, Sophie, and Joker is needed. Continue on using elemental attacks in order to break the shields and stagger the boss. Make use of narrow range elemental skills if you’re close and wide range elemental skills if you’re far from the boss.

Deal Technical Damage using Phys, Gun, and Nuke Attacks

When the boss is inflicted with a status ailment such as Shock, deal technical damage by using Physical, Gun or Nuclear attacks. Switch between Joker, Skull, and Wolf to avoid running out of HP and SP.

Capitalize on Terrain Gimmicks

Persona 5 Strikers - Osaka Jail Dire Shadow War-Hungry Horseman Eligor Use Terrain Gimmicks

If Eligor is beside the floating orbs, you can use a Phantom Dash to deal additional Psychokinesis damage to the boss.

Unleash Showtime Attacks

While engaging Eligor, you may build up your showtime gauge. When it’s available, unleash the showtime attack against the boss. If Joker’s showtime attack is available, make sure he has the right Persona that can capitalize on the weakness of the boss. Also, there is a consumable item that will quickly boost your Showtime gauge build up so feel free to use it against the boss.
