The Last Story Walkthrough
Chapter 38: Raging Ocean
Starting in the ocean, just swim around for a few moments until a cutscene begins. Eventually, you’ll enter Seek, look left to spot a ship in the distance.
When you wake up, look left again in Seek to spot Jirall.
Boss: Lord Jirall
This is a one-on-one duel, you’ll need to use all your skills to defeat Jirall. He fights like Asthar, where he’ll use huge jumps, counter-guard, and attack with a combination of swings.
To fight him, use Gathering to slow him down and build your Burst attack. Remember that if you guard just as he attacks, you’ll counter him. When he jumps, dodge away and guard to avoid taking damage.
Another way to break his tight guard is with Gale or Slash from a hiding position. Do enough damage, and you’ll enter a QTE against Jirall. Follow the onscreen prompts and you’ll make it through okay.
Watch out for Jirall’s forward slash. It can’t be guarded, and he’ll siphon health from you to heal himself.
Defeat Jirall, and you’ll gain the Emperor sword. It’s cursed, so save your Light of the Outsider for it.
