Three shielded characters will ensure that your characters don't get knocked out during the Trounce Domain. Geo Resonance also boosts damage output while shielded, and Cryo Resonance increases CRIT rate against Azhdaha while he's affected by Cryo.

How to Beat Azhdaha

All Elemental Forms

Hydro Form

Cryo Form

Electro Form

Pyro Form

Similar to the Primo Geovishap, Azhdaha can change into different elements. Azhdaha will use 2 elements when you fight him, so make sure you have a team that can counter each element.

Use characters with shields

Azhdaha's attacks deal great damage when they hit, and can knock your party members out easily. To counter this make sure you have at least one character that can generate Shields.

Geo Structures are easily destroyed

Keep in mind that Geo structures are usually destroyed instantly, as Azhdaha's movements and attacks are powerful enough to take them out with one hit.

Check the ground for incoming attacks

It also means he will do multiple unblockable attacks around him. Stay far away from him when you see the warning, so the attacks won't reach you.
