How To Fight Moonbane In Naraka: Bladepoint

Find out how to slay the massive draconic God of Yin in Naraka: Bladepoint.

Along with the intricate combat techniques, melee weapon options and the elaborate survival mechanics, it is evident that Naraka: Bladepoint has a lot to offer. This close combat focused battle royale also features a PvE boss fight that rewards you with rare cosmetics if you manage to defeat it. This mysterious dragon boss is Moonbane and it appears at random to players at the end of a fight. This makes it quite a rare sighting. Slaying Moonbane is one of the most alluring achievements to complete in this game. So let’s find out how you can fight and defeat Moonbane in Naraka: Bladepoint.

How to Beat Moonbane in Naraka: Bladepoint

Contrary to its formidable appearance and its colossal size, the Moonbane boss is fairly easy to defeat. If you are lucky enough to get Moobane in your Herald’s Trial matches, chances are you are already familiar with parrying and countering attacks. This is because Moonbane only appears to higher ranked players, even though it is mostly RNG.

Parrying is the primary and the most effective method to defeat Moonbane. Once you’re summoned in front of it, the dragon will start charging and shooting you with bolts of energy. Now, all you and your squad has to do is parry these attacks so that the bolt charges are deflected back to Moonbane’s soul. The dragon has six bars of health. So each bolt of energy you hit it with takes down one entire bar. If you and mates manage to parry and deflect these attacks, you can defeat him pretty quickly. You can then unlock the Moonbane Treasure and gain rewards.

Summoning Moonbane

If you are fairly new to the game, you must be wondering why Moonbane doesn’t appear in your matches when you win. This is because even though there is no surefire way to summon Moobane, there are certain requirements that need to be met to increase your chances. There requirements are:

  • You need to be at Platinum rank for Moonbane to spawn. It also sometimes appears in Gold rank but that is extremely rare.
  • Moonbane only appears in triple squad matches so you need 2 other players to fight and win alongside.
  • You need to play in Herald’s Trial game mode to summon and face the dragon as it does not appear in Quick Battle.
  • Apart from winning the Herald’s Trial, you also need to make sure all of your teammates are alive by the end of the match.

You can also figure out if Moonbane will appear in your match if you notice it in the in-game lobby before the match starts.
