If you want to defeat the God-Devouring Serpent in Elder Cheese Devouring, you have to be very careful. You have to get through all three phases of this game, including the Magma Slam and Poison Spit, as well as avoid the Serpent-Hunter’s attack.
Phase 1 of the God Devouring Serpent in Dragon Quest VIII is very straightforward. During this phase, the God Devouring Serpent attacks you in the form of two or three lunges. It also makes an impressive shockwave attack that can do significant damage.
You can counter the shockwave attack with a shield or a double-handed weapon. However, you must be able to dodge the serpent’s head to avoid damage.
For example, you can use the Serpent-Hunter, which is a great spear with special properties. The Serpent-Hunter can attack and interrupt the God Devouring Serpent’s attacks. In addition, the Serpent-Hunter can be used as a jab against Rykard.
The Serpent-Hunter can also be used in combination with the Mimic Tear Spirit. This can significantly reduce the difficulty of the God Devouring Serpent’s first phase.
Defeating the God-Devouring Serpent
When you play Dragon Quest VIII, you may encounter the God-Devouring Serpent. If so, you’re going to need some tips and strategies to defeat this intimidating boss. Fortunately, this guide has you covered. It’s full of useful information about the boss, including where he’s located and his stats.
The first thing to note is that the Serpent is not as tough as its name suggests. Even though it possesses the ability to spit poison at long range, it cannot actually do so. Instead, it attacks players in two or three different ways.
The most common attack is the serpent’s multi-hit spinning swipe, which is easily avoided by rolling into it. This attack does only damage once, however.
Another attack is the serpent’s head attack, which sends globs of poison flying in various directions. By blocking the magma, you can slow its movement and avoid its damage.
Avoiding the Serpent-Hunter’s attack
When fighting the God Devouring Serpent in Dragon Quest VIII, you’ll encounter a very frustrating fight. The serpent will lunge at you and throw a lava quake at you, sending a large stream of magma over your head. If you can’t dodge these attacks, you’ll have to take damage.
Thankfully, there are several ways to avoid the Serpent-Hunter’s attack. You can use your sword to avoid attacks, or you can poke the boss between attacks. Using your sword can be very effective in this phase, but it’s important to pay attention to your surroundings.
Another option is to avoid the Serpent-Hunter’s spit. This attack spreads globs of poison in different directions. It’s important to avoid the poison area, because it slows your movement. However, the snake can also spin around and lob poisonous venom at you.
Poison Spit is an AOE attack that you’ll encounter during your fight against the God Devouring Serpent. It’s one of the few attacks that you’ll have a chance to dodge.
To avoid this move, you can either run away, or you can roll out of the puddle. You can also try blocking the lava, if it’s coming towards you.
The Serpent is a large creature that will move around a lot during the fight. This makes it easier to anticipate its attacks. In particular, its multi-hit spinning swipe is easy to dodge if you’re not in close proximity. Likewise, the serpent’s AOE moves have a clear tell, and you can avoid them by moving to the side.
During the fight, the Serpent will occasionally thrash about and shoot magma at the player. This can cause a lot of damage if the player is in close proximity to it. While the magma can be blocked with a shield, it’s not a good idea to get too close.
If you are attempting to beat God Devouring Serpent, a great weapon to get is the Serpent Killer spear. This two handed spear will give you an edge against the boss. However, you will need to keep your distance from the serpent, as its grab attack is hard to dodge.
In order to thwart the snake, you can also try dodging its AOE attacks, such as the magma slam. You can do this by sprinting to the side, or by blocking the serpent’s path to the player.
Another way to thwart the serpent is by blocking the lava pool. This will slow your movement and make it harder for the snake to attack.
The Serpent’s basic lunge attack is called the Snake Bite. It usually occurs after a second lunge.
