Tips to defeat Cragclaw:
There are three waves of battle with Cragclaw in Journey to the Savage Planet. You can grab health potion in the first two. After every wave, Cragclaw will unleash powerful attacks, you can see his health bar is divided into three parts. Each part represents one wave of battle. So before you enter the third and final one do grab some health potion and keep your bar full. Avoid standing on fire for a long time or else you will die.
Wave 1: When Cragclaw reveals itself he will have three glowing tentacles on this head. You have to destroy all three to empty the first section of health. The best tip here is to stand to hear the plant that drops health potion. The attacks will be slow and less severe. Cragclaw will release a wave of fire and rocks. You can dodge or crouch to avoid it, shoot the three glowing eggs on his head and enter the second wave. After every three attacks, Cragclaw will pause for a while, first avoid the attacks and then attack him.
Wave 2: In the second wave he will summon four tentacles and the fight continues. Now the attack pattern has four attacks straight. First, he will spit fire on you, so change your position. Next, he will release three fire waves one after another so dodge or crouch and then shoot down all four glowing eggs on his tentacles to empty the second section of the health bar.
Wave 3: In the last and final wave of attack, Cragclass Boss in Journey to the Savage Planet will have fine attack points. His attack patterns will be different know, he will release fire wave along with spitting fireballs. The area wherever it falls will catch fire. So be ready to jump to another platform, and shoot. This will be easier, but take care you won’t stand on fire for long. It will damage your health. You are not going to get any health potions in the last wave.
