Tips and tricks to defeat the Primo Geovishap

Attack Pattern: The boss is more likely to perform the following attacks depending on where the player is relative to its position. Primordial Shower is random and it wouldn't be used when the boss is at extremely low health. The attacks not mentioned below are random.

  • When the player is far away: Burrow and Primeval Spring
  • When the player is in front: Punch, Slash and Elemental Breath
  • When the player is behind: Spin

Offence Strategy: Back-stabbing (attacking from the rear) is effective against this boss. In this position, the boss is less aggressive and Spin attack is a common sight. Once in a while, it will perform the more deadly attacks but easily dodged (Read below). When the player is in front, the boss will attack continuously. So, the player is harder to perform a full combo.

Defense Strategy: Punch, Slash, and Primeval Spring are easy to dodge without abusing the invincibility frame. Just dash out of the way.

Spin is time-restrained to dodge successfully. If your shield can take a full hit from Spin then you may not dodge it. Spin can be dodged by dashing twice away from the boss (Hold back and dash twice). If you notice the charging-up animation earlier, you may consider conserving stamina by dashing once and keep running away from the boss. After the boss stops spinning, you may turn around and continue attacking

To dodge Combo Slash, dash forward right (or left) and stay beside its rear legs (a melee distance away). Slash can be dodged with just the first part

When attacking with Elemental Breath, it always turns right and then left. So, dash forward right and move until its rear legs

The AoE of the rune-covered rocks are big so keep out of its reach.

Just make sure to have a shield before it unleashes Primordial Shower. While being shielded, the damage dealt would backlash upon it, and dealing greater damage if both your shield and the boss have the same elemental type. Normal geo shield works against all elements.

Primo Geovishap best team comp

Employ whichever damage dealer you like best and have at least one character that can generate a shield on-demand. Geo shield works best because it can reflect the Primordial Shower of any elemental.

Noelle and Zhongli are the best shield generator. Albedo and Ningguang are less effective because the boss can block your path to obtain the crystal.
