Note: You cannot completly kill the Gorgara outright the first time around so your focus is to get him down to a quarter health.
Tip: During this fight you’ll want to be switching your lock on location by moving the right stick to allow you attack the body part closest to you.
This boss takes a leap in terms of difficulty compared to the previous boss encounters as you find yourself dealing with interesting attacks that kill you quickly if you aren’t aware. Once the fight begins you won’t be able deal too much damage as you can’t get close enough so you’ll need to wait for the Gorgara to charge at you with his head and then dodge, here you’ll want to use Force Slow on him which will give you a few seconds to get a couple of hits.
Whilst you’re waiting on him to do the charge, you’ll find yourself needing to dodge a Red Attack where Gorgara will attempt to swipe you with his wings. He’ll also do another Red Attack throughout where he punches the floor with one of his wings, if you get out of the way he’ll get it stuck in the ground for a few seconds allowing you to get a few hits in.
After you’ve dealt a little bit of damage he’ll fly up into the sky and fire a tornado in a straight line across the arena, simply keep on the move to avoid this attack. Immediately after the tornado attack he’ll slam into the ground causing a ring of mud to come up which you’ll have to jump over to avoid taking damage. Finally, after you’ve dodged the ring of mud he’ll dart across the arena two-three times.
Upon getting the boss down to a quarter health he’ll escape out of the arena, but the fight doesn’t end there. Interact with the body that initiated the fight and you’ll acquire the Climbing Claws, use it to climb up the wall behind the body and then follow the path ahead and use the Meditation Point. Now jump onto the wall and quickly climb up as the Gorgara will be chasing you, after you reach the top you’ll be grabbed and taken up into the sky where you’ll need to direct Cal over to the bird and land on him by pressing [L2/LT], repeat this two-three times and the boss will be defeated.
