  • There are a few weak enemies surrounding the Wandering Amon, so it is best to eliminate these enemies before engaging the battle. Dunban can use Soaring Tempest and Heat Haze against these weak enemies to fill the Party Gauge. Additionally, Dunban can use Demon Slayer as a finishing blow against a weak enemy to make the Wandering Amon fall down.
  • The Wandering Amon has very high attack power (1,945) and agility (146). Use strength down debuff to reduce its attack power. It has some resistance against agility down debuff.
  • Like other Eks, it has no resistance to paralysis. Debuffing it with paralysis will slow down its auto attack rate to 25%.
  • It has a counter damage spike (1,000) with a radius of 8 units. Purge, Topple, and/or equip with spike defence gems to defend against the spike. Long range attackers can easily avoid receiving spike damage.
  • All of the Wandering Amon's attacks are physical, so they are easy to counter by using Monado Speed (Shulk).
