Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is finally available, and the game was well-received here at LOGNET. Of course, there were some tricky bits in the game as well, including the notorious mushroom harvesting quest that will likely cause you to smack your head from frustration. Some of the boss fights can put up a decent fight as well. But don’t fret, we got your back. Lord Addict from ILP sat down with LOGNET and together we’ve compiled a comprehensive Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising boss guide below. Be warned some of the bosses might spoil the game for you. So, proceed with caution.
Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising Boss Guide – Hollow Plant
The first boss you will encounter in Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is the Hallow Plant. It is located in the Great Forest.
Hollow Plant – Attack Patterns
The Hollow Plant has three primary attacks:
- Throws tree branches.
- Insects throw circular webs at you, causing you to slow down.
- Hollow Plant shoots a beam at you with his tongue (it is also his weak spot as well).
Hollow Plant – When to Strike
- Dodge his tree branch projectiles, wait for the attack phase to end, and head over to dish out some damage.
- Don’t get greedy and avoid getting hit by the Hollow Plant’s tongue beam.
- If you’re strong enough, you can hit him repeatedly and his tongue will be exposed (though you’ll need to be above level 10 for that to happen).
The Lode Golem is located in the Quarry.
Lode Golem – Attack Patterns & Notes
Since the Lode Golem is a rock-based boss in a quarry, most of his attacks involve… well rocks:
- The Lode Golem shoots rocks at you from above. Their trajectory is designated by a red vertical line.
- The Golem will also shoot out his arms at you Mazinger style.
- He is also capable of dishing out a super strong attack. This attack occurs directly in front of the Golem in a downwards direction.
- Every time the Lode Golem jumps and moves, rocks fall down. Again, the rocks’ trajectory is designated by a vertical red line.
- The Golem has two forms: a regular form and a weakened/exposed form.
Lode Golem – When to Strike
- The Lode Golem’s weak spot is a red crystal that appears on his head during his exposed/weakened form.
- Get used to switching ability, and feel comfortable switching to Garoo during this boss fight.
- Be sure to use Garoo lot. He has the ability to knock back projectiles and hit them back at the Lode Golem. You will need to rely on this ability during this boss fight.
- Be sure to hit back the Lod Golem’s arm projectile as well, this will deplete a lot of his armor.
- In addition to hitting back projectiles at the Golem, focus on dodging them as well.
- Once the Golem’s armor is depleted, the red crystal appears. Be sure to dish out the hurt, but don’t get too greedy.
- After his weakened phase, he will go back to his regular form. But be careful, the Golem dishes out a massive attack once he switches back, causing rocks to fall down (again, they have vertical red lines to designate their trajectory).
Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising Boss Guide – Mantor Wyrm
The Mantor Wyrm is a massive flame-loving creature that will deal with different fire-type attacks.
Mantor Wyrm – Attack Patterns
The Wyrm has three primary attacks:
- Its main attack is when the Mantor Wyrm goes into the lava pit and throws lava at you. The lava sticks to the ground causing an area-of-effect (AOE) for a couple of seconds.
- The Wyrm will shoot a giant fireball at you (you can hit it back with Garoo). This attack’s tell is when the Mantor Wyrm’s mouth glows before shooting the fireball.
- Lastly, the Mantor Wyrm has a bite attack. The bite’s space is random though, so keep that in mind. Sometimes the bite attack will take up the entire platform you’re on. Be sure to jump up and dash to the left to avoid this attack. The bite’s tell is when the Wyrm’s eyes glow instantly and he will pull his neck back and shimmer up.
Mantor Wyrm – When to Strike
- Focus on dodging until the Mantor Wyrm does his fireball attack. Use Garoo to hit back the fireball at the Wyrm. Doing so will open the Mantor Wyrm up to some free hits.
- You can also land some hits on the Mantor Wyrm at the edges of the boss fight area. Though, it is easier to knock back fireballs at the Wyrm.
Blizzard Brothers – Attack patterns & Notes
The Blizzard Brothers are a tricky pair. During the fight, they will send out mobs throughout the fight. These mobs are random enemies from the snowy region.
In addition, each brother has its own unique attacks:
- The yellow-eyed brother shoots spiked snowballs at you. Note that you cannot deflect these back with Garoo, so keep that in mind.
- The blue-eyed brother will shoot up snow spikes at the bottom of the fighting area. These spikes will last for a couple of seconds.
Each brother will attack in turns Where the yellow-eyed brother goes first then the blue-eyed Blizzard Brother. They will spawn mobs in between their attack phases.
Blizzard Brothers – When to Strike
- Focus on killing the mobs first before directing your attention to the Blizzard Brothers.
- The best time to hit the Blizzard Brothers is between their attack phases. In other words, when the blue-eyed brother just finished his attack and yellow is gearing up to go).
- Be sure to use link attacks and CJ’s up attack (note these are upgrades that you have to unlock ahead of this boss fight).
Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising Boss Guide – Hurstwine
Hurstwine is a complex character with a complex moveset. So be prepared for a fierce fight.
Hurstwine – Attack Patterns & Notes
- Bandits will respawn after a certain time frame once you defeat them.
- Once you defeat the bandits, Hurstwine will become more aggressive. Avoid killing all the bandits at once, keep one in the fray.
- Hurstwine throws homing spinning projectiles directly at you. Keep in mind, that they can’t be deflected.
- He can dish out a powerful melee attack.
- Hurstwine throws an AOE attack in front of him that does a line of damage.
Hurtswine – When to Strike
- Use CJ’s dash move to get behind him after you kill the bandits (leave one alive to avoid aggroing Hurstwine).
- Try using link attack as much as you can before the enemies respawn. Rinse and repeat.
Sorcerer Phase 1 – Human Form
This is it, the final boss. Keep in mind that the Sorcerer boss fight is a two-phase boss fight. During Sorcerer’s human form, he will levitate and float around.
Sorcerer Human Form – Attack Patterns
- The Sorcerer throws different elemental projectiles at you (fire, lightning). These projectiles are thrown in a vertical pattern. They cannot be deflected, and show up with a red trajectory line like previous bosses.
- He also shoots horizontal ice projectiles at you. Again, there will be a red light to indicate its trajectory.
- The Sorcerer will put up a stone wall in front of him for protection. But the fireball projectile can go throw the stone wall, so keep that in mind.
Sorcerer Human Form – When to Strike
- Use CJ’s dash ability to close in distance with the Sorcerer. Note, that the dash ability can bypass projectiles.
- Rely on Isha’s fireballs and link attacks to deal damage.
Sorcerer Phase 2 – Giant Spider Form
The fight isn’t over yet. The second phase of this boss fight begins once the Sorcerer transforms into a Giant Spider.
Sorcerer Giant Spider Form – Attack Patterns
- The Giant Spider throws down shadow mobs at you.
- It also sends out a shadow AOE attack.
- The Giant Spider also shoots shadow projectiles at you. The best way to avoid these is to stay under the two platforms beneath him.
- It will shoot a vertical lightning elemental attack at you. There will be a red dot/line indicator before this attack.
- Occasionally, the Giant Spider will shoot horizontal ice projectiles as well.
Sorcerer Giant Spider Form – When to Strike
- During the shadow AOE attack, wait for it to finish before attacking the Giant Spider. Be careful not to get hit during this attack as it does a tremendous amount of damage. The attack only lasts a couple of seconds and again, don’t be greedy.
- Keep in mind if you get close to it, the Giant Spider will melee attack you.
- The best thing to do is take your time and be patient. Always be mindful of its attacks.
- Use the platform in the boss fight area to your advantage. A majority of the Giant Spider’s attacks can be avoided there.
- When the Giant Spider comes down, this is the best time to attack. Do not attack until after it finishes the AOE shadow attack.
- Be sure to look out for elemental lightning and ice attacks. You’ll be dealing mainly with his shadow projectiles and shadow mobs during this phase.
