This challenge, though one of the hardest in the game, is fairly straightforward and relies heavily on combat techniques.
You will have to fight the four Blight forms of Ganon: Fireblight Ganon, Waterblight Ganon, Windblight Ganon, and Thunderblight Ganon then both Harbinger Ganon and Calamity Ganon. The good thing is, you will have to fight them one-by-one which gives you a lot of breathing room.
If you are still having a hard time, here are some tips and tricks to make this challenge enjoyable!
If you are really having trouble with survivability, we suggest using Mipha as her special-attack restores hearts!
Always try to execute Flurry Rushes by dodging at the last time! Flurry Rushes hit directly to the weak-point gauge so always try to execute it!
At around half health, Thunderblight Ganon will spawn two clones of himself. When he does this, do not lock-on any of them. This allows you to see the movements of the three enemies to better execute Perfect Dodges.
Also, try defeating the clones first. They have much less health than the original Thunderblight Ganon so focus on them as much as possible!
Always try to execute runes when prompted as this opens up the enemy's weak-point gauge. Also, know the other uses of runes offensively!
The Stasis rune allows you to extend the hitting duration of an enemy's Weak-Point Gauge. Just use it when the Weak-Point Gauge is exposed to attacks.
Take note that the Remote Bomb rune deals damage directly to the enemy's Weak-Point Gauge. Do not hesitate to use it when the full Weak-Point Gauge is close to breaking.
If you are still having difficulty, we suggest over-leveling your chosen character by grinding EXP on other easier challenges or using the Military Training Camp. We suggest going 5 to 10 levels above the recommended!
Since this challenge does not permit you to use items, we suggest cooking recipes that promote survivability and increases perfect-dodge timing window:
|Survivability||Recover Health Every 10 Seconds
Auto-Revive Once After KO
|Perfect-Dodge Timing Window||Perfect-Dodge Timing Window +%|
Auto-Revive Once After KO fills your health completely after revival so use it for hard challenges like this!
If you are really stuck and at the end of your wits, we suggest setting the difficulty mode to Easy. Enemies are easier to defeat and they do not hit that hard in this difficulty so the problem with the time constraint and survivability may be solved.
Of course, you can always change the difficulty back afterward!
