Freeing Korok Forest Tips and Strategies

Hit the Stalnox's Eye When It Drops

Stalnox eye.jpg

When you deal enough damage to the Stalnox (e.g. with a special attack), it will be immobilized and drop its eye. Focus all your attack on the eye to quickly deplete the Stalnox's weak-point gauge.

How to Beat Astor

Dodge and Strike

Most of Astor's attacks are difficult to avoid especially when you blindly attack him head-on. Focus on running around to dodge his attacks and rush in when you see an opening or when the weak-point gauge is revealed. Back away when he regains his stance then repeat.

Defeat the Hollows

5-on-1 battle.jpg

When Astor shields himself, he will summon the Hollows to fight for him again. Ignore Astor for now and deal with the Hollows first to break the barrier. This will put him in a weakened state for a while where you can quickly whittle his weak-point gauge.
