Hello all. I'm currently in Darm tower on Book 1, and I'm trying to beat this praying mantis looking boss on floor 8. It seems like no matter what I do I cannot damage him at all, not really sure what's going on. I'm level 23. I figured it could be that he has a small hit box but I'm not sure because he moves so fast. Any help would be appreciated.
I forget exactly what level I was, but probably the biggest tip I can give you (which applies for practically all of the bosses in both games) is to gain another level and try again. It really does make a difference.
Also, there is some more powerful equipment scattered throughout the tower, so if you haven't been exploring thoroughly you might want to do that.

Alright..well I'm level 24 now and still nothing. As for equipment I'm using the Katana as my weapon, the silver shield, and the Reflex Armor and the power ring. As for tactics I'm trying to run behind him and attack so I can avoid those crescent blade things. I cannot advance past I think floor 11 because of the poisonous air so I need that hammer..is there a specific strategy to use to beat this guy?
