Ahh this reminds me of the old days beating the tar out of bosses whom you had to focus on certain areas of the body to get results. Here is my questions. 1. Do the arms get destroyed at the elbow range or is it all the way to the shoulder? Some how I get the feeling that if you attack his shoulders than those arms may not spawn back as quickly. In other words, keep the arms under constant damage but at the same time focus on those shoulders with dps. 2. Can his head be targeted by aoe? This reminds me of the old days in contra 3 with the turtle boss. Some times the best way to beat that boss was to use omega or rapid spread fire attack damage at the head. This method also helped to eliminate the turrents making the fight a little easier. I think if an aoe can be targeted at the head and shoulder at the same time it may be able to damage the arm and head at the same time. 3. Speaking of contra 3, did you happen to notice anything that seemed out of place on his body when you got near the middle or end of the fight? I highly suspect that in a fight like this a designer might have a particularly special sweet spot that when targeted deals significantly more damage than normal. While the head seems the obvious choice, again Im reminded of the turtle boss. That boss could be damaged on the head but if you really wanted to take the boss out in a hurry you had to take out that heart. If this guy has a special sweet spot than some time in the fight it may become apparent. I would love to know where that is.
