Travelers need to defeat all enemies and seal the boss on the ocean bed again.

#1. Take advantage of the weather condition

Osial boss will cause rain in the area of battle, so you can take advantage of it to make enemies wet. Your direct opponents are Fatui. You can use the wet condition on the battleground to create many powerful reactions, such as Frozen, Vaporize, and Electro-Charged.

As the Fatui will appear continuously, you need to take them down as fast as possible. The elemental reactions will cause more DMG to Fatui and eliminate them faster. There are some Fatui using snow guns. You need to avoid their attack by freezing them with Frozen reactions.

#3. Dash away from warning areas

When the Osial boss attacks players with water balls, you can see a red warning circle on the ground. You need to sprint and leave that warning area as fast as possible. Therefore, you should save your stamina and consume food that buffs the stamina of your characters.

#4. Protect all three Guizhong Ballistas

These Guizhong Ballistas are the only weapons to defeat the Osial boss. Therefore, you have to protect them from opponents that Osial brings to the harbor. Like the Oceanid, this Hydro boss also counters you by releasing enemies. Don't let these enemies destroy any Ballistas. When all enemies are eliminated, Adepti will use Guizhong Ballistas to shoot Osial down and seal it on the ocean bed again.
