Guide on How to Defeat Goremand

|Target Areas||Body / Alter ego|
|EXP Rewards||26,000 exp|
|Cold Blaze||Goremand’s Water attribute spell which causes damage and inflicts Snowman.|
|Blaze Wall||Goremand’s Flame attribute spell which causes damage and inflicts Charge state.|
|Evil Gate||Goremand’s Dark attribute spell. He summons three dark orbs in front of him and sends them to travel across the straight lines.|
|Wind||Goremand’s Wind attribute spell. He whips up two tornadoes that swirl on its body.|
|Stone Cloud||Goremand’s Earth attribute spell which causes damage and inflicts Petrify.|
|Death Roulette||Goremand’s signature spell. The boss places a death counter on 1 enemy which lasts for 10 seconds, with multiple “corpses” appearing on the field. When it connects, the enemy instantly perishes.|
Here is a breakdown of the battle strategy against the boss.
Equip Water or Light elemental
The boss and his escorts don’t appreciate Water and Light elemental weapons. Having support magic such as saber that endow one of those properties is beneficial for this boss fight.
Focus on Alter ego
Goremand calls for illusions of himself at the start of the match. You can tell them apart by looking at the color, the copies appear pale and shiny. Luckily, the alter ego and the main boss share the same weaknesses.
Stop the death counter
Goremand puts a 10-second counter that inflicts death on one enemy when it falls to zero. Many bosses employ similar style of attacks. The goal is to knock out all the “corpses” that spawn on the field to stop the countdown. Aside from breaking the spell, Goremand staggers giving you enough time to channel class strikes to whittle him down.
