Strategy Writeup

Naomi will initially spawn as a giant twisted rag-doll, with her legs facing up (knees up) and her torso facing down (belly and elbows down) .  During this phase, she will merely release an occasional tremor attack that damages targets standing below her or within her immediate vicinity. However, aside from this attack it seems that at this beginning phase Naomi is not an active threat, as she will stay put after crawling into a wall. This gives the player an opportunity to quickly damage her by hack-n-slashing her with melee combo attacks. 

Once Naomi's HP has been reduced to roughly 70%, a cutscene will play, showing her form twisting into the opposite orientation - with her lower body facing down (knees down) and torso facing up (elbows up). Naomi will reemerge in this form with her HP bar refilled. A far more formidable threat compared to the last stage, Naomi will execute a series of damaging melee attacks. Although these moves cover large areas, they come with the cost of self-induced crowd controls. For example, Naomi will begin with a sweeping attack, turning in 180 degrees with one arm extended, but the after cast of the skill will expose her side to attacks. Another such move features her firing ribbons from her back, which pierces into the ground and extends out from below her target, dealing moderate damage. However, as her ribbons are rooted into the ground she will be snared for the entire duration. A more obvious sacrifice attack is when Naomi performs her forward lunge, which deals damage to units in her path, though she will faceplant onto the ground, knocking herself down. A more threatening move during this stage is her greater tremor, where she arches back as she kneels and lets out a roar, knocking down all units in a large radius. 

Since most of Naomi's attack comes with self-inhibiting effects, players can adopt a "peek-a-boo" pattern when performing melee attacks. Maintain distance or dodge as you notice Naomi preparing to strike, and once she has crowd-controlled herself, move back in to chain melee combos. Rinse and repeat, and perform psychokinesis attacks when the psychokinesis bar hsa charged up. 

Attacks & Counters

Attack Counter
Phase 1
Tremor: Naomi releases a deep bellow as she stays on all fours, damaging units within a radius.  Dodge back, then follow up with melee attacks when the skill is over
Phase 2
Sweep: Naomi turns 180 degrees as she extends one arm, damaging nearby units and knocking back enemies. "Dog chase" her by focus on attacking her legs, keep an eye out for the pre-cast of this skill, where she will lift one arm slightly before executing the move. Move to the side opposite to the arm she lifts.  Hoping back and using psychokinesis is also an effective counter. 
Piercing Ribbons: Naomi fires ribbons from her back, which penetrates into the ground, traces enemies, and uppercuts the targets from below. She is rooted while her ribbons are underground.  Keep moving as you attack with psychokinesis or melee strikes to avoid the ribbons and damage her simultaneously. 
Lunge: Naomi lunges forwards, dealing damage to units in front before crash landing onto the ground. Move away; Dodge sideways. Counter attack as she crash lands. 
Smash: Naomi lifts one arm before hammering her fist onto the ground, dealing damage in a small area.  Move away; Dodge. 
Greater Tremor Naomi stands up on her knees and lets out a cry, releasing damaging sonic waves in over a large radius.  Turn around and run out of the sonic waves' radius; follow up with psychokinesis attacks. 

 

 

Naomi Randall (Boss) Lore

Naomi Randall is originally an ally NPC - specifically, Kasane Randall's sister. She is bestowed with unique precognitive powers, which deemed her a crucial member to the party during the Quest "Days of Disquieting Stagnation (Abandoned Subway)" in the Abandoned Subway: Suoh line 9's Osukuni Station. However, as the team was working together Naomi abruptly turned into a grotesque, huamnoid monstrosity, revealing her alternate form as an Others creature. There in the abandoned undergrounds she fought the party in her twisted, cumbersome vessel, and upon her eventual defeat, survived as her sister, Kasane Randall stopped the party from killing her. While the party was still in shock, unknown members of the OSF suddenly appeared and teleported Naomi away using strong transfer powers. As the mysterious OSF agents made their escape, Kasane pursued after them without second thought, determined to unearth the whereabouts of her sister...
