NieR Replicant Shahriyar
The boss fight essentially revolves around targeting the glowing cubes in all three forms. It’s highly recommended to use the Dark Lance as it makes aiming a whole lot easier.
During the first form, always aim for the layers on the bottom and continue to clear the colored blocks.
The second one is the human form with cubes located where the hands should be. Also, try to avoid the smash attack that deals a lot of damage but can be jumped over.
During the third form, always try to focus on the topmost layer – these will be rotating so be careful! Keep on clearing the colored cube until the final one appears and complete the fight. For players who need a visual representation, here’s a small video tutorial:
Once defeated, players will be able to return the Prince of Façade to his hometown where he’ll become the King of Façade, reward players with Rebirth, and a Sealed Verse.
