Guide on How to Defeat Harcypete
Harcypete was one of the bosses that you need to defeat in Trials of Mana and returns for another encounter. Harcypete appears as stronger variant of the harpy. She represents the Wind element. The boss is encountered once again at Dark Castle.
Here is a breakdown of the boss’ strengths and weaknesses, stats, and skills.
Harcypete comes back and sports higher stats compared to the match in Gusthall. She still commits to the same attacks so feel free to go through them again if you need a refresher.
|Lift||Harcypete takes the enemy to the air and then throws them back to the ground, the attack puts the enemy to sleep.|
|Feather Needle||One of Harcypete’s regular attacks and affects 1 enemy.|
|Supersonic||Harcypete charges for a powerful attack.|
|Speed Up||Harcypete buffs its speed.|
|Protect Down||Harcypete lowers 1 enemy’s defense.|
|Cyclone +||Harcypete casts a linear Wind attribute magic damage.|
|Air Blast||Harcypete summons cyclones which causes Wind attribute magic damage to all enemies.|
Here is a breakdown of the battle strategies against the boss.
The quest to free the mana spirit Jinn should be done when you reach level 20.
Harcypete can be tough to attack because she flies in the air. You’ll need to chase her around the boss area to nail those attacks. Similar to regular Harpy, the boss has regular swipe attacks. However, you need to keep moving to avoid one of Harcypete’s Supersonic.
Wait for the attacks to expire
Harcypete carries many area of effect spells such as Air Blast. Bait for her to attack and then don’t approach her until the attack takes its course and misses. Now, while she tries to recover, immediately close in and punish her with your own attacks. Among the spells she uses, Cyclone + is linear which is fairly easy to dodge compared to her other abilities.
Prevent Harcypete from charging
After reducing her health significantly, Harcypete starts to use Supersonic, an ability that takes some charge time. When the boss area starts to glow red, close in quickly and whittle her down to interrupt the charge. If you do it right, not only will Harcypete stop charging but she will also stagger, giving you enough time to follow up with more attacks.
