Battle Items

Corrosion Bomb, Whirlwind Bomb, Destruction Bomb

Clones

The boss summons two clones of her human form. They drop two armor buffs and could stack up to 3 times and minimize incoming damage.

Circle Swipe

The boss will raise its right leg and look backwards before doing a circle swipe. The boss only does this attack during the 1st and 2nd phase. It won’t during the 3rd and 4th. If the boss does the same telegraph again right after, it will be a clone spawn.

Circle Swipe into Clones

If the boss looks like it will do the circle swipe again, it will always be the no damage spawn clones one. The boss will not do 2 circle swipes in a row

Side Tail Swipe

The boss will look either right or left before tail swiping in that direction. After this move, consider it a good time to use close range attacks. 

Back Tail Swipe

The boss will bend her head down and raise its tail before doing a back tail swipe. After this move, consider it a good time to use close range attacks.

Scream (Upgraded Again)

Targeted Quadruple Fireballs

Fireball (Upgraded)

Instead of one fireball being used, multiple fireballs are thrown out that create AoE flames. She will bend her head down for the fireballs that create AoEs.

Phase I Mechanic: Ring

During the battle, the boss spreads 5 orbs in a circle. You must use space or use a super armor skill to get out of the circle. Just walking through it won’t work as it will pull you back in. If you fail to get out of the circle by the time it ends, you get transformed into a fox for 20 seconds.

Phase II Mechanic: Beads

The beads spread out from Yoho instead of circling. Only 5 beads spread out at any one given time. The locations where they spawn change every time. The easiest way to not get hit by these beads is to stand up close and figure out where they won’t spawn. If you get hit by 3 of these beads, you will turn into a fox.

Phase III Mechanic: Break

The boss charges for a short duration. You must use stagger skills to knock the boss. Use whirlwind bombs if your team is low on stagger abilities. If you succeed, she drops ether buffs which increase movement speed. If you fail, the entire team turns into a fox. After the break, the boss will do either a circle swipe, back tail swipe or side tail swipe.

Phase IV Mechanic: Tail Cut + Darkness

Once you get to the 4th phase, the boss receives reduced damage. You do more damage every time the boss loses more tails. Use as much stagger as possible so you can knock the boss and cut its tail. After the break, the boss will do either a circle swipe, back tail swipe or side tail swipe.

Color Change

During the battle, Yoho’s color palette will change into a shiny one. This is signaled by an animation and sound.

10-20 seconds after, the boss will scream and go up into the air. You must run away. The best option is to climb up vines, which will make you dodge all her tornado attacks that follow up. If it’s not the closest available option you can run away as far as possible behind a wall. Be aware that tornadoes do travel across the same elevation. Walls can block tornadoes. Jumping over platforms makes you invincible so be sure to do that to be 100% safe.
