How to beat the Ruin Serpent

The boss is not so difficult. You can say that it’s just a warm-up for you when you enter the Chasm. When the fight starts, you have to use your Lumenstone Adjuvant to clear the Oozing concretions used by the boss. It is necessary to do this, if not, then it will be difficult for you to move freely. He can also harness energy from the Oozing attack he used around the battlefield. 

Again, using your Lumenstone Adjuvant will stop him to charge up as you will remove all the ooze. The boss will use a  sweep attack in which he will move from left to right and vice versa. Quickly get away from him because if you take a hit from this attack, it will cause you a high DMG.

You will lose the Lumen energy very quickly because you are using it to remove the ooze. Now read this carefully. The boss itself helps you in this fight. He will create some Geo crystals around the arena to attack you. When you destroy these Geo crystals, you will create lumen energy that will charge your gadget. Just continue with these and keep attacking from a distance. This fight will be over very soon.
