  • Building up your Athra Surge is one of the most efficient ways to complete this battle, as that will unleash a massive surge of damage onto your opponent.

  • When Alternate Sargon is down to 25% of his HP, he will get away as far as he can from you and this is your time to unleash all of your attacks to close in and take him down.
