How to Defeat

The Moblin uses the shield to block your attacks, although it isn’t very sturdy. You can slice the shield into pieces, leaving the Moblin vulnerable to sword attacks.

The Moblin’s primary attack is using its spear to wind back and deliver a thrusting blow at you. You can quickly dodge the attack and deliver a counter sword slash during the recoil period.

Another thing you can try is dashing straight towards the shield. You’ll run up the shield like a wall and jump behind the Moblin. From there, you can perform a flurry of attacks before it fully turns around.
