All-Devouring Narwhal doesn't have a specific Elemental Weakness but has high resistance to Hydro and Electro, depending on which phase it is in.

Use Characters that excel in ranged damage

We recommend using characters that can deal damage from a distance, as you would need to attract the All-Devouring Narwal's aggression while it dives to progress further the fight.

Lyney is recommended as he can effectively deal decent Pyro damage and do Pneuma and Ousia attacks. Shield units like Zhongli are also very valuable in this fight, ensuring survivability.

The Dark Shadow can summon smaller creatures that can attack your characters in different directions. You can prevent this by using Pneuma or Ousia attacks when a prompt shows up to immobilize the Dark Shadow.

fr, after all the hype/build up this was the most uncreative and dull boss...underwhelming waste.

it does have hydro resistant but it's not immune, that's why you can still damage it with hydro attack
