How to Beat Namielle

Avoiding the Water Stream

You can dodge electric attacks from Namielle by evading the damage with a high invincibility frame to prevent yourself from taking damage. The signal that shows when Namielle is about to use electricity is when he leaps into the air while blasting water straight down from his current position.

In addition, Namielle will only use this move once he has charged up enough electricity on his body.

Opportunity to Attack

How to Beat - Namielle 1.png
Once Namielle releases the electricity from his body, he will start to weaken and will be vulnerable to your attacks. Use this opportunity to dish out as much damage as you can.

Increased Water Resistance

How to Beat - Namielle 2.png
Most of Namielle's attacks will be a water-based element, try to use gears and equipments that can help you reduce the damage taken from most of his attacks.

Using Nullberries

You can use Nullberries to cure any effect status that you may receive during the fight. Carrying multiple Nullberries can be helpful especially if you get hit by Namielle's attacks often.

Aim for the Legs

Most of Namielle's attacks will shoot forward to where he is facing. Try to stay on his sides and hit the legs if you want to fight with a safer approach.

However, be cautious of his electric attacks and prepare to move away as soon as possible since these electric attacks can deal massive damage in the surrounding area regardless of your position.

Puddles of Water

Be wary of the puddles of water as the fight goes on since they can also deal damage if stepped on while Namielle is using his electric attacks.
