    How to beat Green Wart in Tails of Iron (Final Boss)

    The final boss in the latest side-scrolling action RPG can be a little tricky. In order to beat Green Wart in Tails of Iron, you need to be adaptive to his quick moves and have an overall good endurance. Needless to say, having good weapons, tough armor, more healing drinks, and a long health bar will significantly help you in this battle.

    Green Wart has three phases. Let’s discuss the phases one by one.

    First Phase

    The attacks included in this phase are:

    • Thrust attack (Red warning): Dodge this attack, get behind the boss, and hit him.
    • Parryable spear attack (Yellow Warning): Parry this attack and hit him.
    • Blockable shove attack (Yellow Warning): The frog shoves his spear into the ground and then hit you with it and rocks. Block this attack.
    • Jump attack: Green Wart will jump a few steps forward from where he is standing. Dash through this attack.

    In this phase, keep an eye for the moment when Green Wart will just walk backward without launching any attack for a while. This will be a golden chance to land multiple hits on him.
