You can find this boss in Ivory Ravine in the Wildlands. It is crucial to defeat him if you want to complete The Missing Girl side story in Crackridge.

So, let’s find out how you can beat the boss Octopath Traveler 2 Deep One!

How to beat the boss Deep One in Octopath Traveler 2 

The Deep One is a formidable opponent due to its high shield value and HP. This makes it a challenge to defeat, even for experienced players. In fact, halfway through the fight, the Deep One will start taking multiple actions in a single turn, further adding to its difficulty.

However, there is a pretty easy strategy you can use to beat it. To deal with this challenge, you must be quick to break its shield value. Utilize and boost skills such as the Warrior’s Aggressive Slash or the Hunter’s Precise Shot to significantly decrease its shield value within a single turn. This still leaves the issue of the Deep One’s high HP, which can prolong the fight and make it more arduous.

Fortunately, if you have Temenos as a Scholar you have an even better approach to take down the Deep One. By using his Latent Power and boosting the Scholar’s Elemental Barrage skill, you can reduce the Deep One’s shield value up to 8 times in a single turn, leaving it vulnerable to attacks. 

One way to deal more damage in a single turn is by equipping the Deal More Damage Warrior support skill to your heavy hitters. This will allow you to deal large amounts of damage to the Deep One in a single turn.

By utilizing these techniques, you should be able to successfully defeat the Deep One and move on to the next challenge in Octopath Traveler 2. Looking for more guides? Here’s how to find and beat Mira and elderly guard and how to use exp farming to level up fast.
