Usually, if you encounter the Seized Assemble contained in the Spirit Temple in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, it’s a must to take it down utilizing Mineru’s assemble. However apparently, the builders designed the combat to be beatable utilizing Hyperlink’s customary moveset. Doing so within the Spirit Temple arena will show fairly impractical, although, because the gloom-coated ground forces gamers to both use Mineru or fill up on meals gadgets that may heal gloom harm. Nevertheless, in case you skip the Spirit Temple quest and head straight to Ganondorf’s lair, the sport will power you to face the Seized Assemble with out Mineru’s support. Learn additional to discover ways to overcome this limitation to defeat the Seized Assemble.
Preventing the Seized Assemble with out Mineru
Whether or not you could have Mineru’s assemble or not, your purpose within the Seized Assemble combat includes hitting the boss with melee assaults to knock it into the electrical fence for a giant chunk of injury. However whereas any melee assault with Mineru would finally knock the Seized Assemble again, Hyperlink can solely ship it again by touchdown the ultimate hit of a combo or a cost assault. One of the best strikes to do that with are the cost assaults for both one-handed weapons or the Eightfold Longblade. Since these strikes take the type of a single, highly effective strike moderately than a speedy collection of assaults, they excel at knocking the boss away immediately whereas preserving weapon sturdiness.
For a lot of the combat, the Seized Assemble will stroll up towards you and try and strike with one in every of its fists. Though you possibly can sidestep this transfer for a flurry rush, doing this can waste worthwhile weapon sturdiness whereas dealing subsequent to no harm except it sends the boss to the electrical fence. As a substitute, I discovered that parrying the strike earlier than retaliating with one of many aforementioned cost assaults proves far more environment friendly. The timing for the parry does come just a little bit later than you would possibly anticipate, nevertheless, so be happy to easily transfer away from the assault earlier than countering if you end up having hassle with the parry.
Be aware that when you efficiently harm the Seized Assemble with the electrical fence, you possibly can knock the boss into it once more instantly afterward for some further harm. This gained’t inflict as a lot harm because the preliminary impression towards the fence, however it may well pace up the combat a good quantity in case you handle to do it in time.
After it takes harm, the Seized Assemble will often soar to the far finish of the world and carry out one in every of a handful of strikes towards you. The one one you really want to be careful for is when the Seized Assemble attaches two cannons to its arms, because the blast radius of every cannon shot is tough to keep away from on foot. Thankfully, the Recall means can reverse the motion of the pictures effectively earlier than they hit you, nullifying the risk outright. Moreover, in case you cancel Recall as soon as the shot makes its means again to the Seized Assemble, it should explode and stun the boss, permitting you to smack it into the fence as soon as extra.
As with the opposite predominant bosses, depleting the Seized Assemble’s well being to the midway mark will set off the second section. This sees the boss equipping varied Zonai units and flying into the air earlier than trying to dive down towards you, emphasis on “trying.” Seeing the boss fly up might look intimidating, however for the reason that combat is designed primarily across the sluggish motion of Mineru’s assemble, the assault gained’t even come near hitting you in case you a lot as jog out of the best way. And naturally, dodging it efficiently will go away the Seized Assemble open for one more journey to the electrical fence.
Utilizing Zonai Units
At any time when the boss hits the fence, it should drop no matter Zonai units it occurred to hold throughout its final assault. For essentially the most half, these Zonai units are primarily meant to assist Mineru, so Hyperlink usually gained’t discover an excessive amount of use for them when on his personal.
The cannon does function a notable exception, nevertheless. When controlling Mineru’s assemble, the cannon turns into the last word Achilles heel for the Seized Assemble, in a position to interrupt it out of any assault. Though working a cannon with Ultrahand or attaching it to a weapon or defend as Hyperlink could also be extra awkward than aiming it with Mineru, it’s in any other case nonetheless a robust software.
The Seized Assemble’s Large Weak point
Finally, although, I really feel that the cannon turns into virtually irrelevant when you possibly can simply use Bomb Flowers as an alternative. On this combat, Bomb Flowers have the identical properties as cannon pictures, that means they’ll instantly stun the Seized Assemble for one more electrical fence assault in the event that they join, it doesn’t matter what the boss chooses to do. When hooked up to arrows, Bomb Flowers can flip this combat into an entire pushover. They particularly assist at any time when the boss begins flying as much as assault throughout the second section, as this transfer usually prolongs the combat by fairly a bit in any other case.
In the event you attempt to full the ultimate part of the sport early with out doing any of the temples beforehand, the Seized Assemble will function the fifth combat within the gauntlet of bosses it’s a must to take down earlier than reaching Ganondorf. In that context, there exists the likelihood that you just would possibly run out of Bomb Flowers earlier than reaching this combat, which truthfully doesn’t make the combat that a lot harder. However contemplating the comparatively excessive problem of the gauntlet as a complete, you’ll positively nonetheless desire a good variety of Bomb Flowers readily available to scale back the probabilities of the Seized Assemble combat throwing you off guard. Earlier than tackling the ultimate space early, search across the Depths to fill up on as many Bomb Flowers as you possibly can.
From my expertise, the Seized Assemble is without doubt one of the best of the principle bosses in Tears of the Kingdom, and beating it with out Mineru doesn’t actually change that. It actually makes for a pleasant breather between a number of the tougher bosses in case you resolve to aim the early boss gauntlet.
