How to Beat Armos
Armos uses Gust Bellows to make the propeller on the top of its heads spin which will expose the two gems. One gem can be slashed, the other must be stabbed. Using Gust Bellows on its body while it can't move will cause it to turn around, then stab the last gem.

Armos are living statues that will chase and attack the player once aggroed. There attacks are limited so taking them down is not too tough.

Use the Gust Bellows

Keep your distance from the Armos and use the Gust Bellows to blow wind at the propeller on the top of the Armos head. This will cause it to temporarily shut down and open its mouth revealing two gems. Thrust and slash each gem to defeat the Armos.
