NieR Replicant Shade Goose
In order to find the Goose, travel to the Shadowlord’s Castle and enter the Ballroom. It’s a pretty straightforward fight that most players should’ve no issues completing it.
Once the battle begins, watch out for the charged attack as it can deal a lot of damage. The attack, however, can easily be dodged. Successfully dodging the attack will cause the boss to ram itself into a wall and get stunned for a short while. Players need to use this window to close in on the distance and damage it before backing away.
One more thing to keep in mind is that the Goose can also poison the player which can’t be treated with Antidotal Weed – try to avoid it! Approaching the fight from a safe distance can make the fight go a whole lot smoother. However, it’s highly recommended to have Sealed Verses like Dark Lance of Dark Blast – especially the Dark Lance with its raw damage potential and the ability to aim.
Players need to continue dealing damage until they reach the staircase. This is where something like a spear comes in real clutch. Its ability to clear the path leading to the next section is just too good. Once in the next section, repeat the same strategies as before and the fight should conclude rather quickly.
