How to beat Kageroumaru in Genshin Impact and have it as a pet
Kageroumaru is overall a pretty easy boss as long as you have some shield maker characters with you. Obviously, bring Zhongli into your party if you have it. Or Noëlle.
Even without a Shield user, combat isn’t particularly complicated. Make sure to start breeding Noelle whenever you can, as you absolutely need to have at least one easily usable shield maker. This is why Noelle is a free character. Bring your Barbara for healing if you are not sure.
Kageroumaru and his ninken attack patterns (ninja dog)
Kageroumaru primarily uses close range attacks, and he always has some sort of pose or movement in advance to tell you he’s about to attack. He notably goes from holding his katana with his tail to holding it with his mouth before doing his dangerous 3-hit combo. The names of Kageroumaru’s attacks aren’t displayed during the boss fight, so it’s a little hard to say, but I’m guessing it’s the canine art: Plunging Blade.
Kageroumaru can also fire fan lightning. It is an electro attack similar to the elemental skill of the electro traveler. Finally, Kageroumaru also summons a clone that explodes in a previewed area with a red area, so don’t stay in there. Probably canine art: the Geo Bunshin skill.
Winning the fight in itself is not difficult. However, without a shield, it will be much more difficult to obtain all achievements. As you will have to manually avoid the attacks of Kageroumaru.
The Bantan Sango Case Files: The Warrior Dog Event will run until December 20, 2021. The event is actually quite long, so you better do it now than wait until the last day.
