Genshin Impact Emperor of Fire and Iron boss location
Getting to the Emperor of Fire and Iron boss in Genshin Impact is not difficult at all. To achieve this, you first need to teleport to the waypoint located near the West Slopes of Mont Automnequi. In the screenshot above, it's circled in red for better understanding. Then, right in front of you, you'll see a river that it is necessary to swim into. About halfway down the river, you'll need to dive underwater, and see a tunnel below - that's what you need. Just swim towards it until you come across the location with the boss.
Emperor of Fire and Iron boss attack patterns
You shouldn't underestimate this boss, as Emperor of Fire and Iron has mighty attacks. But the main danger is that if you don't know some patterns, it's almost impossible to dodge them.
The boss uses a variety of attacks, but in addition to the usual short-range attacks, there are a few that you should try your best to avoid. One of them is the fireball attack. Sometimes it can be just one, and sometimes it can release many fireballs at once. To avoid this attack, you just need to keep a close eye on the boss, and when it stops attacking and crouches down, it means that it is now accumulating energy and will soon release fireballs, or it will fill a large part of the surrounding field with lava and this attack should also be avoided.
Tips and tricks to defeat the Emperor of Fire and Iron
Due to the boss' attacks, you'd want to consistently keep your distance from it. But to exploit its weakness, you will need to keep a short distance so that you can attack quickly at any time. And this weakness is its red horns. You can attack them with elemental reactions to stun the boss for a while. Hydro attacks can also be used to make it easier and longer to stun it. When the boss is stunned, you should use all your strongest attacks to deal as much damage as possible. And it's worth talking about its melee attacks, they should not be underestimated, and it is better to dodge them or have a shield.
