Coil Moil Strategies
Strategy WriteupInstead of going progressing through different phases, the battle against the Coil Moil goes down in a cycle as it alternates between two different forms - its Frost Armor form, where it is protected by a layer of frost, and its Unarmored form, where it loses its protective layer but becomes more aggressive. Yuito will be accompanied by Hanabi, Luka and Tsugumi when he encounters the Coil Moil, granting him access to the SAS: Pyrokinesis, SAS: Teleportation and SAS: Clairvoyance powers.
Frost Armor Form:
The battle will begin with the Coil Moil in its Frost Armor form. Although the armor limits its mobility, the Coil Moil will be granted the ability to execute ice attacks, such as firing barrages of Ice Boulders from its head, and performing a smash that summons ice pillars to penetrate through the ground. Furthermore, it will be immune to all forms of damage, until Yuito and his teammates land enough attacks to destroy the thick layer of frost hide.
To counter the Coil Moil in this state, Yuito should move sideways to avoid the incoming shots of Ice Boulders, and run up to it in melee to spam series of combo attacks. Continue to bombard with attacks unless you notice the Coil Moil lift its arms, in which case quickly run out of range. This will allow you to avoid the smash attack, and the following large ice pillars piercing out of the floor. It is recommended for players to save up their SAS: Pyrokinesis for this form, as the fire damage from this power will enable Yuito to cut down the Frost Armor much quicker. Once the armor breaks, the Coil Moil will be exposed in its Unarmored Form, and will instantly fall to the ground from the sudden impact. Take advantage of its vulnerable position and chain as many attacks onto its weak spot - the bulbs on its back - to deal maximum damage and fill up the Crush Gauge. If you manage to break the Frost Armor before SAS: Pyrokinesis times out, this should allow Yuito to attack its weak spot with the blade ignited, further optimizing damage.
While in its Unarmored Form, the Coil Moil will attack more frequently, and will use water-based attacks. When approached at melee, it will attempt to swat you aside with its closest arm, then proceed to turn towards you before firing jet streams of compressed water from the knobs surrounding its head. Avoid this by playing "dog fight" with the Coil Moil, chasing its hind legs from a distance while using Psychokinesis to throw surrounding ice sculptures at it. If approached again, it will lift its arms to smash the ground to send out a shockwave, breaking the ice in a radius and creating five large pillars of water that spin around it. Although this attack covers a rather large area, it is always telegraphed with the arm-lifting motion. Avoid this skill by turning around and running out of range as quickly as possible as it deals massive damage and can stun targets for several seconds, while applying the "Soaked" Status Ailment. While the pillars of water orbiting the Coil Moil, players can bypass them with the SAS: Teleportation power and attack the Others monstrosity in melee. Take note that after this attack, the Coil Moil will tunnel into the ground, before reemerging with rejuvenated Frost Armor again.
The Coil Moil will tunnel after it performs its ground smash attack in the Unarmored Form. While tunneling, the Coil Moil will track Yuito's footsteps, and leap out from under the ice floor in approximately 5 seconds. The impact from its reemergence can easily be avoided so long as Yuito continues to run without stopping. However, the Coil Moil will reappear with its Frost Armor rejuvenated, and the cycle repeats itself.
In summary, retain SAS: Pyrokinesis for quickly destroying the Coil Moil's Frost Armor and attack its back and underside in melee whenever it is in its unarmored state. Filling up the Crush Gauge can greatly speed up the fight as it can chunk roughly 20-25% of its health in one hit. Maintain mobility to avoid most of the Coil Moil's onslaught and keep pressure with Psychokinesis from time to time.
