Throughout the main story mode of Granblue Fantasy: Relink, players will get to encounter several bosses that are crucial to defeat for progressing in the game. Unlike the prologue boss fight with Proto Bahamut, the very first boss that players will have to defeat in a boss fight is Quakadile in Chapter 1: The Western Frontier.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to defeat Quakadile in Granblue Fantasy: Relink.
How to Defeat Quakadile in Granblue Fantasy: Relink
Quakadile is a giant reptile monster with a bunch of heavy attacks and weak against Wind-type attacks. Fortunately, the starting skill of the players will be a Wind-type attack named Reginleiv IV that players will be able to use frequently in the fight to deal a decent amount of damage. However, this boss fight isn’t that hard as the game will provide several tutorials on special attacks and information on the state of the boss throughout the fight. Despite the tutorials and information, it is still crucial for players to know about the attacks of Quakadile to perfectly dodge and stay alive.
- Claw Strikes: Quakadile strikes both of its claws in the front direction. You can both block and dodge this attack.
- Tail Swipe: Quakadile turns red and swipes its tail. Dodge the attack to get away from AOE.
- Claw Slam: Quakadile raises the right hand and slams it on the ground. Dodge the attack to continue attacking Quakadile.
These are the main three attacks that Quakadile will perform during the normal mode and once you have depleted 10% of Quakadile’s health, the rest of your allies will join the fight which will help you take down the boss more easily. Use the Regineiv IV skill whenever it is ready to keep dealing high damage and as you deal more damage to Quakadile, it will fill up its mode and turn it into an Overdrive.
During the Overdrive mode, the boss will get aggressive and deal more damage with its attacks. Dodge the rolling headbutt attack and keep attacking it to get a chance to land a Link Attack. Whenever the boss gets stunned, you will be able to perform the Link Attack with party members which deals a great amount of damage.
After performing the Link Attack with party members, you will be able to see the Link Level of your party which you can increase by performing further Link Attacks. Keep attacking and dodging the attacks of Quakadile to deplete the overdrive mode and bring it back to normal mode.
Once you and your party members’ Skybound Arts (orange bar under health bar) is filled to 100%, perform the Skybound Arts move by pressing the L3 + R3. It will trigger the multiple Skybound Arts moves for all of the party members which will deal extensive damage to Quakadile and most probably defeat it.
