Tips and Strategies

Beware of Patrolling Enemies

Xenoblade Chronicles Satorl Marsh Patrol.jpg
There are large groups of enemies patrolling the area. Be careful that you don't walk into them and start a fight you can't finish.

Check the Trees for Enemies

In the trees above, there are Quadwings that are vision-triggered. Be aware of them in case they join a fight you weren't expecting them to so they don't overwhelm you.

Look Out for the Poison Water

Xenoblade Chronicles Poison Water.jpg
The purple water is poison that will damage your characters over time as they stand in it. Get through it quickly and find a place to rest before engaging enemies, or you'll enter combat below full health.

Boss Strategy Guide

Satorl Guardian

Xenoblade Chronicles Satorl Guardian.jpg

Satorl Guardian Recommended Characters

Shulk IconShulk Dunban IconDunban Sharla IconSharla

With four playable characters now, someone will have to sit this fight out. We recommend picking Shulk as your controllable character, and Sharla for support, since she can remove enemy debuffs. We recommend Dunban for drawing the boss's aggro, although Reyn fills this role nicely as well.

Watch Out For Poison Attacks

The Satorl Guardian uses a lot of poison attacks that deal damage over time. Beware of them, and make sure Sharla has the Cure Bullet Art to heal your characters.

Use Sharla's Thunder Bullet

Sharla's Thunder Bullet Art is extra effective against fliers, and will come in handy against the Satorl Guardian. Make sure to select it in a Chain Attack. Since it is Purple Colored, you likely won't have any other arts to chain it to, but you can make use of Talent Arts in a chain, which are Black Colored and combo with anything.

Keep Repositioning to Get Good Positioning

Satorl Guardian, like the other fliers, moves a lot, and and you must keep moving to get the right positions for your Battle Arts.
