How to capture the battle worn shark in Octopath Traveler 2 

The Battle-Worn Shark is a fierce creature that you can fight repeatedly. You can find the Shark in a cove just below Canalbrine. This encounter is possible after completing Partitio’s Scent of Commerce quest in Topu’hopu and obtaining a boat.

Before engaging in battle with the Shark, you should ensure that their team is adequately prepared. The Shark has 60,000 HP and can launch brutal attacks that can be devastating to unprepared players. 

It is a straightforward boss encounter, but it periodically uses two debuffs that can make the fight more challenging. These debuffs prevent party members from using their Boost Powers or lower their speed. The latter debuff is the most challenging, as the Shark is very fast and can often hit twice in a row.

What makes this fish more challenging than most is its brutal physical attacks. To stand a chance, make sure your units have as close to 3,000 HP as possible. A Cleric with Heal Wounds is essential if your team’s HP is lower.

Effective strategies include using the Armsmaster Sixfold Strike to take advantage of the Shark’s physical weaknesses and using Vengeful Blade. If you’re lucky and the Shark attacks twice in a row, you can deal a significant amount of damage and take it down.
