How to beat Zhang Liang, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty’s first boss

Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty’s first boss, Zhang Liang, is a tricky customer, especially if you’ve never played Sekiro, and you’re not particularly used to this game’s parry-centric game style. He’s super aggressive, hard to dodge, and when your fighting companion says he’ll get the boss’s attention so you can heal, he just…doesn’t.

What’s worse, Zhang Liang has a second phase where he eats some demon candy, goes real red, and grows a spiky arm that he’s fond of swinging all over the place. There are certain things you can do to make this fight easier, such as grabbing the polearm podao weapon from the chest in the village elder’s hut, or levelling up your wood virtue to get that little bit of extra health. Either way, here’s my best strategy for beating Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty’s first boss.

Zhang Liang comes at you swinging his big mace, and sadly, if you want this fight to be over quickly, you’re going to have to deflect his attacks (B on keyboard and controller). This will shrink his Spirit Gauge (shown below boss health) and eventually cause Spirit Disruption, letting you perform a Fatal Strike (LMB + shift or Y on controller) which takes off a big chunk of his health. You’ll know when he’s open to a Fatal Strike, because he’ll stop moving and a red dot will glow in his chest, Sekiro-style.
