Its the final boss time! This guy actually isn't that tough once you get his pattern down.

He has 3 phases, so lets begin!

Phase 1

He uses 2 attacks: first is a basic sword swing consisting of two swings. Easily avoidable. Second, he stabs his sword into the ground and covers the arena in flame. The only way to avoid the area attack is to double-jump and then attack with cn_Xcn_Xcn_X, then you can hit cn_Y to come down and hit him, this will keep you juggled in the air so the attack can dissipate and you will not take damage.

Now for the very simple strategy: Get up right next to him, hit him with cn_Xcn_X or cn_Xcn_Xcn_X, then immediately roll AGAINST him to avoid swing #1, roll again to avoid swing #2, then quickly hit him with cn_Xcn_X orcn_Xcn_Xcn_X. Rinse and repeat! It takes a little while, but doing this will ensure you take very little damage in this phase. The only time you should break the cycle is to juggle yourself to avoid the area flame attack.

Once you deal enough damage, he will break the floor and start Phase 2.

Phase 2

3 attacks in this phase: First, a huge sword swing. His sword will turn into flame to signify its coming up. You will need to roll backwards or up/down to avoid this, rolling into him wont work this time.

Second, he will summon a ball above his head and it will shoot out 2 fireballs, very easy to avoid.

Third, a ground pound attack that shoots out a ground shockwave. You'll know this is coming as he will jump in the air ready to pound the ground with his fist. You can simply jump over the shockwave to avoid it.

Very simple strategy here: just avoid either attack then go in for a combo cn_Xcn_Xcn_Xcn_Y, avoid the next attack, combo, repeat!

After dealing enough damage he will kneel down and two healing statues will come out. The first time this happens you can hit them, but they will not take damage. Simply damage him some more and eventually they will pop out again, once they do, start attacking them ( I just jumped and used cn_Xcn_Xcn_X) you should be able to kill one and possibly hurt the second before it fully heals him again.

Repeat the pain until the statue pops out again and finish it off!

Phase 3

This phase will have you advancing him towards the edge of a cliff. The boss is static this entire phase and only has 2 attacks:

He will summon the orb again and shoot off 2 fireballs, again, easily avoidable. Second, a flame shock wave. Its similar to the Phase 1 area attack, simply jump and juggle yourself to avoid it.

It doesn't get easier than this! Just wail on him until he performs an attack, avoid it, continue wailing.

Eventually you'll push him off the edge of the cliff. BOOM! Gatebreaker is toast and the achievement is yours!
