How To Beat Sekhret Minotaur

Sekhret Minotaur’s Attacks And Their Counters

Attack Description
Charge If you’re far from him, the Minotaur will lower his head and run at full speed toward you. He will turn around and repeat this attack. 
Club Swing A potent attack, Sekhret will swing its club around his head three times before swinging it towards you with full force. 
Ground Slam A basic yet effective attack. The beast will pull his hammer behind his head and unleash a devastating blow to the ground
Upper Cut As the name says, he will pull his Club back and, with all his might, try to hit an uppercut that will send you flying into the air.

In addition to that, you need to know the exact count measures to hunt Sekhret Minotaur in Final Fantasy 16 easily.

Attack Counter Measure
Charge If you’re at a reasonable distance from him, dodging this attack won’t be difficult. Simply get out of the way and be prepared for his second charge. 
Club Swing When you see Sekhret swinging his club around his head, that’s your cue to get away from him. This attack does the most damage, so maintaining distance is key. 
Ground Slam You can easily dodge this attack because of its slow pace. When you see him pulling the club behind his head, move out of the way and be ready to attack him as soon as he’s done. 
Upper Cut Since you are busy spamming abilities, you won’t see him start the uppercut. And before you see his attack, it’ll be too late. So, the best way to avoid this would be to constantly attack and move, not staying stationary in one position.

  • It is important to remember that Sekhret Minotaur is deadly at close ranges. Even though he can only do melee attacks, the attack damage makes him a formidable foe.
  • Keep your distance and try to attack with long-range abilities.
  • On the other hand, if you want to get close, do it right after he has finished his attack. Sekhret is a very slow and bulky creature that takes time for him to hit another attack.
  • After his club swing attack, he’ll become an easy target for a long time. Make use of this.
  • You can always retreat and come back to kill him later in the game. Once you have stronger abilities and weapons, defeating him will be a breeze. Check out the best weapons in Final Fantasy 16.
