One of the more dangerous enemy type in Tunic is the large skeleton mini-boss. With it’s attacks covering wide areas, it poses a completely different challenge than smaller enemies. But with some patience, defeating him is not a big problem.
How to Beat the Skeleton Mini-Boss in Tunic
The Giant Skeleton usually only has it’s skull visible before approaching it. After you’ll get close, the monster will dig the rest of it’s body out of the ground and attack you. Use the this moment to land a few hits on it, before it’ll be ready for a fight. Once it has it’s club in hands, you’ll need to adapt a slower tactic.
Dodging the Swings
The skeleton has three attacks – a wide club swing, a horizontal club bash and throwing some of it’s bones at you. Out of these, the swing is the biggest problem. In order to avoid it, you should only hut the skeleton two to three times before backing out of it’s range, than wait for it to attack and repeat. The club bash can be easily avoided using the dodge roll, while the bone throw can rarely hit you.
Attacking From Behind
The monster takes a long time to attack. You may use this factor to circle it and attack from behind. If you’ll stay glued to the skeleton’s backside, it might not even have a chance to hit you. But, if it does, use your shield to block the attack. If you do it at the right time, it’ll nullify the effects of the attack, but if your timing is off, the impact will send you flying and stun the fox for a brief moment.

Genshin Impact: Totem Puzzle in ‘Garden of Endless Pillars’ Guide
Lighting the Pyro Totems in the correct order will help you complete this puzzle, and unlock a fast travel waypoint.
The Garden of Endless Pillars is located within the northwestern part of the Sumeru Desert. Once you’ve reached there, you’ll notice a giant slab cemented in the dunes, along with various Pyro totems surrounding it nearby.
There will be various mirage walls across the region, but they should be fairly easy to traverse, while hitting the totems with Pyro attacks.
We’ll explain how to successfully complete the Totem Puzzle in the “Garden of Endless Pillars” Guide – read on for our walkthrough.
The very first thing you’ll need to do is go to the Garden of Endless Pillars location on the map, which we’ve indicated in the screenshots below.
Once you’ve reached The Garden of Endless Pillars, you’ll need to switch over to Amber, as you’ll have to utilize Pyro attacks on the corresponding totems.
The first totem is extremely easy, as there are no walls blocking you – simply take a right upon entering the area, and shoot the totem.
To reach the second totem (pictured above) you will have to walk forward a fair bit until you spot the totem located in the right-hand corner. As you are blocked by the wall, you will need to traverse onto the concrete pillars to get a vantage point from which you can target the second totem.
Head right for the next totem, located in front of crumbled concrete walls. To find the last two totems, proceed forward and take a slight left. The very last one is located to the right, opposite of the prior totem.
Hitting all the totems will cause the slab to activate, and after this sequence, you will unlock a fast travel point for this region, which you can then use moving forward throughout the new update.
