Polyphemus is a strong boss with powerful AoE attacks that can quickly overwhelm unprepared players. When you are finished destroying the six spirit prisons and ready to face Polyphemus, keep these tips in mind:

  • Watch out for his jump attack, which creates a damaging shockwave within the arena. Move outside the affected area to avoid taking damage.
  • Be prepared for multiple consecutive jump attacks, so you need to anticipate and time your dodges accordingly.
  • Prioritize defeating any additional enemies that join the fight before focusing on Polyphemus.
  • Most of Polyphemus' attacks are relatively slow, so take advantage of this by timing your dodges precisely.

Upon defeating Polyphemus, he will drop the resource material you are looking for, Wool.
