Antlion Boss Battle Guide

Use Blizzara from a distance

Antlion's close-range attacks deal heavy damage, so keep a safe distance and throw Magic at it from where it can't hit you. It also takes a long time to prepare between each of its ranged attacks, so you will have plenty of time to hit back as long as you can dodge its moves.

When in close-range, try to get behind it

If you're planning on attacking from close-range, you'll need to stay to its side or behind it as much as possible. The attacks it uses in the early part of the fight are not so threatening, but when its HP falls, it will start to use its Leg Smash attack, which has a much wider range.

If you're taken unaware and start to take hits, be sure to move out of the way and heal up sooner rather than later.

Leave plenty of room to evade

Gives the confined space, the battle with Antlion has a somewhat different camera display from others. This can make it hard to tell how much room you have, and you can find yourself cornered against the wall before you know it. Regardless of whether you're close in or far away from the beast, be sure you've got enough space when attempting evasive maneuvers.

Antlion Attack Phases

Armstrong Abilities and Attack Patterns

Armstrong's attacks will change in response to the players' distance. It will move toward the players consistently, making it difficult to keep a distance. Zig-zag to the left and right, avoiding staying in one spot for too long.

When the players are close

Mandible Attack (directly in front)
Leg Smash (surrounding area)

When the players are far

Petrifying Breath
Thunder

Attacks change when its HP decreases

After decreasing its HP to around 70%, it will start to use its Leg Smash attack. This move is far more difficult to avoid than its Mandible Attack, and will force players to stop attacking and take an evasive position earlier on each approach.

Antlion Rewards

I got a sun pendant to drop Solo at 222 points, when I saw the number I was frustrated at first, then the pendant showed up anyways.
