One thing to remember is that the Morbol excels in inflicting melee and ranged damage. So, your best bet is to always keep moving and evade Morbol’s attacks. The Morbol’s Bad Breath attack can deal damage to Clive as well as stagger him. So, as soon as you see the Morbol preparing the attack, move toward its back and start attacking. During the first phase, you will also be introduced to a new game mechanic called the Cinematic Strike. This will stagger the Morbol, giving you more time to land your attacks. As the legendary creature reaches 50% of its HP, the fight will move to Phase 2.
