Adventurer Handbook Description
A life-form created from condensed Hydro elements of incredible purity. Often attached to bodies of water. It is said that as water bodies become purer, the Hydro elements within grow more abundant, causing the Oceanids to grow more powerful. It is also said by some that Oceanids were once sea creatures from a home far away who carried the fragments of a long-dead god to the many corners of this world....

Oceanid Video Walkthrough

Defeating the Water Monsters

How to Beat - Oceanid 1.jpg
Defeating the water monsters that Oceanid summons will reduce its health. You must continue doing this until the Oceanid loses all of its health in order to win the fight.

Sinking Platforms

How to Beat - Oceanid 2.jpg
Every time you defeat 2 batches of Oceanid's water monsters, the Oceanid will sink 2 of the platforms that you are standing on to limit your movement. Make sure that you position yourself carefully since it will be a lot more difficult to move around especially in the last phase.

Focusing One Enemy

The water monsters that the Oceanid summons will gradually heal itself over time. It is highly recommended that you only focus on defeating them one by one instead of dealing damage to all of them at once.

Not Enough Damage

If you take too much time in defeating the water monsters that the Oceanid summons, the Oceanid uses a powerful attack that cannot be avoided even if you run. If you do not have high enough damage, it is important that you keep your HP high to survive this attack.

Lisa's Normal Attack

Lisa's normal attack and elemental skills are extremely effective when used against enemies with wet status. Try to use Lisa as your main damage dealer throughout the fight.

Support Characters

Due to some of the water monster's high damaging attacks, it is best that you utilize support characters like Barbara and Noelle to increase your survivability.

Repeated Runs

Lightning Advantage

Since it is always raining when fighting against the Oceanid. It is highly recommended that you attack using a character with a lightning element like Keqing and Fishcl to cause an elemental reaction. This will allow you to hit multiple enemies at once in a single blow.

Freezing and Healing

Qiqi is one of the best character that you can use in this fight because of her ability to freeze the enemy and heal your party at the same time. This will drastically increase your survivability making the fight much easier to handle.

Attack Patterns

Water Crane

Constantly move sideways and avoid the water waves that only goes on a straight line.

Water Frog

This enemy can make various attacks such as water splash, tackle, and pounce. Since this enemy is the highest damaging water monster the Oceanid summons, it is best that you try to focus on defeating this monster first.

This monster will explode after a few seconds upon dying. Be sure to move away after defeating this monster.

Water Hawk

Water Hawk.jpg
The Water Hawk can shoot water projectiles from the air. These monsters cannot be reached by your melee characters, try to use Lisa or Fishcl to take them out immediately.

Water Crab

Try to attack and move sideways to blow the bubble projectiles. Although the damage of each projectile is low, it can still be troublesome because of its amount. Try to use characters that can attack from a distance to avoid taking any damage.

Honestly there's not like any one thing that makes the Oceanid such a frustrating and annoying fight, it's the combination of randomized mobs, endless AOE, the tiles going away, no geo constructs allowed, and the timer on killing mobs. The boss punishes both careful dodging and trying to dps race it. The result is that there's nothing to learn, you just have to jump in and hope you're lucky with the mobs. Goose + frogs? Reload.

      Could be a bug. Try seeing if you have any other incomplete one-time domains in Liyue and Monsdadt. Also check for incomplete archon quests.
