In the Demon of the Yellow Heaven battlefield, players must defeat Zhang Jiao, who is unlike the other bosses in Wo Long Fallen Dynasty because he adapts to your play style. This means that if you try to keep your distance, he will use elemental attacks, and if you come close, he will push you away with his extended hands.

Although the game may seem repetitive, the bosses are all different, requiring a unique approach to beat them. If you're struggling with Zhang Jiao, this guide can help you beat him.

How To Beat Zhang Jiao In Wo Long Fallen Dynasty

Before entering the boss arena, it's essential to prepare by equipping Metal Phase Spells, such as Poison Bubbles, which are effective against Zhang Jiao. Additionally, you may want to consider using the Wizardry Spell Absorb Vitality under the Wood Phase, allowing you and your allies to recover some HP when attacking.

Equipping gear that provides resistance to lightning is also advisable since Zhang Jiao frequently uses that element. Furthermore, you can equip the Wood Phase Spell Inner Breath, which helps fill up your Divine Beast Gauge quickly by deflecting an attack.

Bringing two companions can also provide distractions and give you more breathing room.

Zhang Jiao has two Critical Blow attacks: a club slam and a lunge with his claws. Both of these attacks can be deflected or dodged. However, it's recommended to deflect the lunge attack at the last moment to trip him over, providing an opportunity to deal extra damage.

Zhang Jiao also performs typical claw swipes and sweeps, which deal less damage and can be jumped, deflected, or dodged. It might be worth taking some damage to keep attacking him and maintain pressure.
