Its body parts that you can break are its head, body, hindlegs, and tail. The tail will require you to have a slicing weapon, as it can only be severed unlike the other parts.

With that in mind, its main vulnerabilities are in its unarmored hindlegs and body. Occasionally, it will also tip over and fall on its back after some of its rolling attacks.

The main thing to really watch out for here are its rolling attacks, though we will go through its entire move set in the next part of this guide.

Radobaan’s Attacks & How To Dodge

Bones will fly out of its body whenever it performs most of its attacks, so you will always have to be careful when engaging one. Its roar will also temporarily stun you, leaving you open to other attacks.

It has a varied set of attacks that you should watch out for, and they are the following:

  • Attack #1 – Radobaan will recoil back and lift its head for a bit before slamming the ground with its jaw.
    • Dodge multiple times to the side to avoid this move.
  • Attack #2 – Similar to the previous move, it will lift its head and snap backwards before hitting the ground with its jaw.
    • Dodge to the side as well.
  • Attack #3 – Radobaan will lift its head and briefly roar before sweeping the ground with its jaw in both directions.
    • Dodge to the left and backwards.
  • Attack #4 – Whenever Radobaan takes a few steps back and turns to its side;
    • Dodge backwards as this telegraphs a tackle attack.
  • Attack #5 – The monster raises its tail and does a spinning sweep attack.
    • Dodge backwards at least twice to avoid this.
  • Attack #6 – Radobaan raises its head and curls up into a ball before rolling towards you. After this, it will roll once more and finish with a variation of Attack #1/2.
