How To Beat Laxasia, The Complete in Lies of P

Laxasia, The Complete, is a massive and strong boss, and the battle against her will last two phases. This boss’ weapon has the power to deliver Electric Shock. Because of that, Laxasia, The Complete can perform an array of special electric strikes with varying sequences.

Several of Laxasia’s regular melee attacks will be infused with electricity or emit and deal with electricity after the attack. This boss can also create an Electric Shock line trap that will have an effect if the player touches it.

Laxasia, The Complete also uses a charged strike that starts as an ordinary melee strike before powering up with one huge final slice on the electrified ground. Some of this boss’s larger blows may generate electricity in a line that will diffuse when it touches the floor.

Along with her normal melee attacks, Laxasia, The Complete, has a huge Great Sword Swing that slices downwards and will be followed with an Electric shock. This boss can perform normal melee sword combos, such as swinging, sweeping, posting, slashing, and cutting combinations with an extended reach due to her weapon’s height. Laxasia, The Complete’s attacks are typically extensive combos delivered in succession.

Because she holds such a massive and hefty weapon, many of Laxasia, The Complete’s fundamental moves are slow. This allows the player to evade as this boss lifts her sword, readies up, or pulls away as her attack movement starts.

She will occasionally deal a devastating charged assault, followed by a chance to counter with a Fatal Attack. An indicator indicates where the player needs to be to inflict an effective assault. Use this attack to your advantage by reading Laxasia.

The Complete’s attack swings each time she raises her weapon and then blocks or evades the strikes. The player must watch for these assaults and opportunities for her attacks until her HP is depleted. After that, the second phase of the battle against Laxasia, The Complete, will begin.

In the second phase, Laxasia, The Complete, will remove her bulky armor and move throughout the room more quickly and easily. This boss will then execute rapid melee attacks with her weapon and a few more electric strikes.

Throughout this phase, some of this boss’ more powerful electric assaults will give the player a chance to perform a Fatal Attack. This will exhaust Laxasia, The Complete, and become targeted for a critical hit. Because of that, it is important to make the most of these opportunities.

Also, in this phase, the boss can now jump in the room and land an immense assault. Then, Laxasia, The Complete, can now perform aerial electric strikes from a distance. The player can redirect these attacks back at Laxasia, The Complete, to inflict massive damage.

Throughout this phase, responding quickly and modifying your angles to adapt to her improved speed is important. Using the player’s ability to move and deliver a charged strike is important whenever possible

Because the electricity released may be unpredictable, the player must adapt to this boss’ behavior. To prevent from being affected by the electricity, ensure that the player knows when each strike ends before advancing with strikes. It is recommended to execute a fully charged strike whenever you can to stagger Laxasia, The Complete, between these attacks while they aren’t producing energy

When blocking Laxasia, The Complete’s attacks, try to Perfect Block as much as possible. Doing so can also stun and stagger Laxasia. After that, the player can then inflict massive amounts of damage.

It is also important to note that Laxasia, The Complete, is weak against Acid. The player can equip acid weapons and/or grinder with that in mind.

It is recommended that the player equip the following items:
