How to Complete Hia Miu: A Major Test of Strength

Major Tests of Strength can definitely be tricky fights for the less experienced player, and are probably something you’ll want to avoid until you have better armor and weapons and a few more heart containers under your belt!

This Guardian enemy wields a Guardian Spear++ and a Guardian Sword++, and an Ancient Battle Axe++! For this fight and the other major tests of strength, you’ll definitely want to utilise the perfect guard, sidehop and backflip abilities to avoid incoming attacks, since the Guardian can hit quite hard! Perfectly timed abilities also have the chance of triggering a flurry attack that’s great for dealing extra damage to the enemy.

Ability Controls combo
Perfect Guard Joy_Con_ZL.png Ready Shield > Joy_Con_A.png Parry
Sidehop Joy_Con_ZL.png Target enemy > Joy_Con_Left_Stick.png⮜ or ⮞ Strafe > Joy_Con_X.png Jump
Backflip Joy_Con_ZL.png Target enemy > Joy_Con_Left_Stick.png ⮟ Backpedal > Joy_Con_X.png Jump

Watch out for the Guardian’s ranged attacks, including explosive lasers that are triggered when you’ve almost defeated it. The way to deal with the final explosive lasers is to run up to it before he’s finished charging his attack and try to defeat it before it starts shooting.

Get ready for what feels like a bit of an unbalanced fight - he has three weapons!
