How to Defeat Ocean Circuit Judge in Genshin Impact

Just like the Fairy Knight Twins, the key to defeating the Ocean Circuit Judge boss will lie in using a specific ability to counter his signature attack —in this case, his ability to throw sea creatures at you. You will be able to do that by first interacting with an Xenochromatic Armored Crab and getting their ability, which will allow you to generate a shield.

After getting the ability, you will be able to easily defeat Ocean Circuit Judge by staying put and waiting for the Giant Crab to start his throw. The boss will usually perform one after each dash, so you won’t have to wait for long.

Once he begins his throw, you will then be able to counter his attack and deal massive damage by holding your Elemental Skill key/button, aiming at the boss, and then letting go at the moment his projectile hits you. Doing so will allow you to counter by absorbing the impact of his attack and then sending it back to him.

After performing the counter, just wait for him to perform more throws and repeat the process a few more times to defeat the boss.

The Best Characters for Underwater Boss Battles in Genshin Impact

When facing underwater bosses in Genshin Impact, survivability is the name of the game. For that, I strongly recommend the use of characters whose kits revolve around HP, such as Hu Tao, Yelan, Dehya, Nilou, Zhongli, or Neivillette.

For those looking for underwater buffs, using a team featuring Neuvillette, Freminet, and Lynette would be ideal. While Lynette will increase the amount of HP and Stamina your team will gain from Recovery Orbs by 25%, Freminet and Neuvillette will decrease your Aquatic Stamina consumption while underwater by 35%, while also increasing your team’s sprint speed while underwater by the same amount respectively.
