Shear's Counterattack Tips & Tricks


  • The Jury-Rigged Cutter you will have to fight here may look different from other Cutters, but it's practically the same. It doesn't have any particular attacks you need to be watching out for, so you should be able to fight it just like any other enemy. It is weak to Lightning-magic, so a few hits of Thundaga will go a long way.
