The Oceanid boss in Genshin Impact might come as an unsurmountable battle for new players. However, if you know the ins and outs of the battle – it becomes a rather gimmicky fight.

The Oceanid boss arena is made of many square platforms combined together, and whenever the players defeat two batch of water monsters – two blocks of the floor will sink. So, the best strategy to avoid getting yourself drowned is to run towards any of the corners – and when the sinking is in the process get to the central arena.

Apart from the waters monsters, the Oceanid has only three attacks

  • Sinking platforms – as we said earlier, whenever player defeats two waves of monsters – the Oceanid will sink two platforms(in which player is standing). Use the aforementioned strategy to avoid it.
  • Water Whirlpool – the Oceanid creates a whirlpool near the player that cannot be dodged, moreover it deals DoT damage, and explodes after a while, dealing massive damage. Use Fischl elemental burst to avoid a massive damage. Also, this attack is only triggered when you take a long time in defeating the water monsters. So it can be avoided if you deal with the monsters as soon as possible.
  • Submerge in water – nothing that big, she submerges herself in water.

Use bow users like Fischl to deal with enemies from a long range. Or, use Bennet’s Elemental Skill near the monsters spawn point and go for close range attacks using Razor or any other sword or claymore user.

Cryo users can be used to freeze the water monsters and then close-range attacks way better than long-range(as you can deal with multiple of them at once and since they are frozen they can’t regenerate). So, a team with two Electro and two Cryo users is also a good strategy to go with.
