Fight against Goss Harag

The Goss Harag is relatively static compared to other monsters. He uses his massive fists to fight like a brute.

When he is blue, he is relatively calm, using his fists. Absolutely avoid standing in front of him, the double punch really hurts.

Also, beware of his jump, it looks like he's running away, but he'll trigger a long-distance shockwave on the ground when he lands. This attack is perfect for catching fighters by surprise. Be prepared to do a sideways dodge in this case, or to gain height with a wirebug.

When enraged, his skin turns red and he is more vulnerable to damage, but he is also much more formidable. He gains a powerful long-range frost blast that he always uses twice in a row. The first blast sweeps vertically at long range. The second sweep horizontally. If you're far away from him, it's best to move even farther away to be out of range. If you are close, go for his flanks to attack his arms or his back.

Beware of the ice blades, as their damage is immense and the Goss Harag will sweep the area several times. The easiest way to deal with this is to go behind his back and quickly roll under his arms before the attack. Attempting to dodge all attacks otherwise is dangerous.

His blades are a weak point: if you attack them enough, they will break completely and the monster will be thrown to the ground, exposed to attacks for a few seconds. On the other hand, if you don't break them, Goss Harag will end up throwing them at you from a distance
