How to Beat The Knave (Arlecchino) Boss

The Knave Has Two Forms

Genshin Impact - The Knave (Arlecchino) Boss Guide - Second Form

Like all the other Harbingers we've fought so far, Arlecchino has 2 forms. Her first form consists of leaps and melee strikes, and her second form will increase her agility and dexterity, enabling her to execute longer attack strings.

She will also be able to fly around the battlefield, evading several of your attacks, while sending forth powerful projectiles. Pay attention to her attack patterns and prediction lines and avoid them as best you can!

The Knave Attack Patterns

Clear Bond of Life to Gain Scarlet Nighttide

Genshin Impact - The Knave (Arlecchino) Boss Guide - Scarlet Nighttide

A large number of the Knave's attacks will inflict you with a Bond of Life status that will absorb any healing for it to be cleared, and will add to any incoming DMG.

However, clearing it will bestow your next Charged Attack with Scarlet Nighttide, which will deal massive True DMG to the Knave and leave her open for attacks!

Clear Bond of Life to Interrupt Bloodtide Banquet

The Knave's strongest attack, Bloodtide Banquet, will bestow Bond on Life to your characters as she starts casting it. To counteract this, clear the Bond of Life status and use a Charged Attack to interrupt it.

This will leave the Knave vulnerable for a short period of time, allowing you to stack up on damage and unleash all your Elemental Bursts as necessary!

Bring Characters with Fast Charged Attacks

Taking how Scarlet Nighttide and Bloodtide Banquest works, it's best to bring along characters such as Wriothesley and Neuvillette that can execute Charged Attacks quickly.

Failing to clear the Bond of Life before Arlecchino's next attack will have severely adverse consequences and can potentially one-shot a character.

Focus on Healers and Shields

Since the Bond of Life status is your gateway to an attack opening against the Knave, clearing it ahead of time is in your best interest. Characters like Baizhu, Furina, and Kokomi can almost instantly clear the Bond of Life status.

This will make for easier access to Scarlet Nighttide, allowing you to incapacitate the Knave more frequently. Top it off with shields to negate any additional damage from her attacks and just get the Bond of Life.
