Boss Strategy: Houseleon

You'll have to go against Houseleon on a boss fight on Week 2, Day 2. This noise turns invisible so damage it as much as you can when you see it. It is weak to fire and wind so be sure to equip pins with either of those affinities. You can also equip pins with stone, electric, or darkness affinities to take down other enemies in the field.

Dodge When Target is Red.jpg
Houseleon targets you as you fight so be sure to watch out for a target icon on your character. Dodge when the target turns red to avoid taking damage.

Dodge electricity.jpg
This noise also emits electricity that will incapacitate your character for a bit when hit. When you see houseleon charging up electricity, it's better to back away from it. You can also use pins that will incapacitate it for a while to stop it from jolting your character.
