Here is a breakdown of the battle strategy against the boss.
Bring support magic
You can opt to combine Moon Saber with the rest of your high level equipment to nail some big damage while you weaken Mondoragon.
Follow the markings
The boss loves to perform mix-ups and combines his physical attacks with spells. Having said that, you need to pay attention to markings that appear on the floor and determine the path you need to go through while close the distance and punish him.
Attack his hind legs
Mondoragon’s move pool consists of many attacks that cause damage on the path he faces directly. To get around them, make sure to stay behind him to minimize the damage sustained. Cleave one of his hind legs to whittle him down and watch out for status effects and magic spells that appear.
Use Class Strikes sparingly
It can be tempting to punish him with class strikes the moment you find a window, however just like dodging, you need to time them well. A great opportunity is to get the class strikes in right after the boss completes a round of aerial attacks.
Interrupt the powerful attacks
Mondoragon carries plenty of attacks and two of these take loads of health. Like other boss fights, look for objects that spawn around the area when you find the boss charging. Here, you’ll need strike the moon in the center. After approaching them, quickly take turns to bring the gauge down to stop the charged attack. If you can’t afford to do it in time, you need to be on full health to withstand the attack. Be sure to heal right away.
