How to beat the Goss Harag

The advantage of Goss Harag is that he can only attack with his arms (or almost). The problem is that this is also the only weak point accessible, which makes you take risks to hit him.

At the beginning of the fight, Goss Harag will create an ice blade around one of his arms. When he has only half his HP left, he creates blades on both arms. His blades are very dangerous, as they combine power and range. You can therefore consider this monster as a swordsman. It is better to wait for it to attack and dodge, and to strike it in the time after its attack. Breaking its claws will make the fight much more obvious, but it can reform them every time it gets angry.

The only time the Goss Harag will not attack with its claws is when it becomes enraged. The Goss Harag turns red, leaps backwards and then spits a continuous beam of ice vertically in front of it, then a horizontal beam. Dodge the vertical beam with a simple step to the side while sheathing your weapon and prepare to use your filopter to leap over the horizontal beam.
