Boss Fight tactics for Simon Grey in New World
The best way to fight Simon Grey is to use close-range attacks. This means that you will need to have Tank players on your team. These players can soak up the damage while you go gung ho on the attacks. Also, make sure to have one teammate with the Taunt Skill. This is for the time Simon Grey spawns minions. These minions can be lured away with the Taunt skill, allowing you to focus your attacks better.
Simon Grey will also go beserk mode once his health goes below 50%. This lasts for 20 seconds and will heavily speed up his attacks. Throughout the fight, you should make sure to keep your focus on just Simon. Make sure you have a dedicated player to take care of the multiple enemies that spawn.
Simon Grey will also vomit on his opponents in New World. This will cause Disease to all afflicted players. Make sure your healer also gets off the poison from affected characters.
Again make sure to keep the healing only when necessary. This is because there are other enemies that will constantly be around. So, only take a breather when absolutely necessary.
Completing this boss fight will net you 84000 coins, 2100 XP, and 210 Weapon Mastery.
