How to Beat Electro Hypostasis

Electro Hypostasis Video Walkthrough

Shields Itself with Defense Cubes

Electro Hypostasis defends itself with cubes

Similar to other Hypostasis, the Electro Hypostasis is invulnerable to all damage while it has cubes surrounding it. It is best to keep your distance and dodge its attacks while waiting for an opportunity to counterattack.

Chance to Attack

Electro Hypostasis can be attacked when the cubes are gone

After doing an attack, the Electro Hypostasis won't have the defense cubes surrounding it and will be vulnerable for a few seconds. Take this opportunity to attack and bring down its HP.

Defeating Electro Hypostasis

Defeat the Electro Prisms once Electro Hypostasis is low on health

Once the Electro Hypostasis HP is low enough, it will disappear and 3 Electro Prisms will appear at the center that you need to destroy.

In order to finish off the Electro Hypostasis you will need to destroy all 3 in a limited time. Failing to do so will regenerate the Electro Hypostasis' HP by a certain amount depending on how many prisms are left.

Use Elemental Attacks

The Electro Prisms are immune to normal attacks and electro damage, so you will need to use Elemental Attacks in order to destroy it. It might be useful to save up your skills once the Electro Hypostasis is below 15% HP, so that your skills won't be on cooldown when it's time to destroy the Prisms.

Recommended Characters

The following are the best recommended characters to use for the Electro Hypostasis.

When building your party, it is recommended to choose 1 DPS, then either 2 Sub-DPS and 1 Support or 1 Sub-DPS and 2 Support, depending on what characters you have available and built.

Skill then switch

Once the Electro Hypostasis is vulnerable, use your Sub-DPS Elemental Skill then quickly switch to your main DPS to deal damage so that you can deal continuous damage.

Shield defense

If you're having trouble dodging certain attacks, use Noelle's skill to put a shield up so that you take less damage.

Save your bursts

It's best to save your bursts and skills for the Electro Prisms if you can. Most F2P characters deal normal attack damage, so once you use up their skill or burst, it's best to switch to the next character.

You can also finish off the Prisms with Amber's charged bow attack as it will deal Pyro damage.

Elemental Damage is Key

For this fight, it is highly recommended to use characters that don't need to use Skills or Burst to deal elemental damage as they will be able to destroy the prisms even if their skills are on cooldown.

Elemental Synergy

Characters that synergize well with the element of your main DPS will increase the damage and elemental reactions that you generate, making the fight easier in the long run.

Attack Patterns

Pattern 1 - Rock, Scissors, Paper

Electro Hypostasis - Rock Paper Scissors

When the cubes form the shape of a fist, immediately dash and move away from its attack range to avoid taking damage. This attack is sometimes followed-up by 2 more attack forms which are the scissor attack and the hand slam.

Pattern 2 - Drill

Electro Hypostasis - Drill attack

This attack can easily be avoided by continuously walking or dashing away from its target.

Pattern 3 - Spinning Laser

Electro Hypostasis - Spinning lasers

You can avoid this attack by walking or running in a counter-clockwise direction. However, since the Electro Hypostasis is also vulnerable during this attack, you can also use this opportunity to dish out some damage before moving away to dodge the cubes returning when the circle below disappears.

Pattern 4 - Electro Waves

Electro Hypostasis - Electro waves

Avoid this attack by moving clockwise as the Electro Hypostasis spins slowly. The cubes on the ground will grow larger as the attack finishes but it can be avoided by dashing in the opposite direction.

Pattern 5 - Electro Pillar Trap

Electro Hypostasis - Electro Pillar Trap

The Electro Hypostasis will summon pillars to trap you, the spaces between each pillar will be impassable while the pillars are up. You will need to escape out of the circle before it surrounds you completely. If you manage to escape, the Electro Hypostasis will be vulnerable to attacks for a period of time.

If you're not able to escape, you will need to dodge the attacks. The range of the attack can be seen on the ground making them easy to avoid. You can wait for the attack to expire or break one of the pillars to end it quicker.
