    Lubicant soul
    Ness64 23 Oct 2021 23:17
    I used Laevatain, Flame Demon, Bone Pillar and Rubicante (Lubicant) for this one. DON'T forget the sword, you should hit him and instantly backdash out of his range. Stay on the ground for as long as possible and try to jump over Julius only when he's starting an attack (and only when you get cornered), his aerial attacks are harder to dodge than his ground ones and you can keep most of the fight on the ground. At my better attempts, I only used soul attacks when he was far enough, at least half a screen away (and if you nail Flame Demon when he's sliding, you get multiple hits too). Phase 2 isn't much harder once you know how to dodge each subweapon, just don't get tricked into staying airborne too long. There's some RNG, but once you get his pattern down, it's all about being consistent for long enough

    My best setup was: Weapon: [Laevatain] Armor: [Dracula's Tunic] Accessory: [Satan's Ring]; Bullet soul: [Flame Demon] Guardian soul: [Buer] Attribute soul: [Lubicant]; Item: [Spoiled Milk] --- Strategy --- Before battle start, use the [Spoiled Milk] to raise [Lubicant] soul effect attributes to max (down HP to 1) and activate [Buer], it will grant some damage when you fleeing from Julius. In second phase use [Flame Demon] attack when Julius is chargin the subweapon; backdash and prepare to dodge. Stay calm and focus... "sometimes" you'll run on his whip... rip; start again lol *HINT* U can "borrow" some [Spoiled Milk] from [Evil Butcher]

    As mentioned above. Lubicant Soul. During 1st phase, stay on ground and bait his whip and back up out of range. Use Bone Pillar soul to land up to 3 hits. Then at 2nd phase just keep distance and Flame Demon. Have a stock of Mind Ups.

    I get the strategies and souls from this comment section, but couldn't find any videos, so here it is a video demonstration, some info in the description.

    this made me realize this fight isnt that bad, it's just that the chlaim solais really isn't good for it
    Tekish11 5 May 2023 02:08
    This is an attrition fight. Stay focused, and be very careful phase two.

    Can still use soul (LUBICANT)
    Tony1111 16 May 2023 20:38
    I killed him but it didn't count 2 times
    MajinWamu 16 Sep 2023 02:43
    I finally did it! And I did it the way everyone says to avoid. I jumped... A LOT. It's just my style. After he swung his whip, and I would jump towards Julius and then instantly jump away the moment I struck him. This was the fastest way for me to damage him and maneuver away. Sometimes I would get two hits (since landing resets your attack) in at 105 damage per swing. For the second phase I just used the flame demon attack and two high minds up to heal my manna, while keeping a safe distance. With this strategy, Julius's second phase is far easier than the first.

    Eu fiquei lutando contra ele durante 3 dias...foi uma verdadeira tortura.
    Rampagingtaru 17 Dec 2023 22:13
    OK found a pretty easy way to kill him first off Lubricant soul, 1hp spoiled milk, Level 40, Death Robe, Satan Ring, weapon doesn't matter I had muramasa equipped,Red soul doesn't matter i had flame demon equipped, finally use Bone Pillar. With 1 hp bone pillar we doing 79 damage a hit. bring some Minds up along too you won't need many. by the time you go through your Mp during the 1st phase of using nothing but bone pillar he is very close to entering phase 2 then just keep at it. On my run when he would get close to the door on phase 2 he would back step more to the middle of the room. Also in phase one once you get the timing down you can bait a whip attack move a tiny bit and get 3 hits off with bone but till you get used to it i suggest going for 2.

    one more thing about this fight, when in phase two, whenever he uses the cross when you're in the corner and you go over him, BE SURE TO JUMP THE CROSS ON THE WAY BACK, dont try to slide, i lost count of how many times i got frieezad in the end of the namek saga by that thing
    TommyDeal 21 Apr 2024 09:03
    This one was surprisingly easy. I even slid underneath his cross a few times no problem. Once I hit level 40 to max out my damage alongside lubicant, I just used Flame Demon on him, especially right after he attacks with his whip so you hit him twice with it, and chugged a bunch of high mind ups, just keeping my distance. I expected this one to be tough.

    Demon Lord soul (+Lubicant soul with low HP) makes this fight a piece of cake, making the weapon of choice irrelevant. Normally you can only encounter Demon Lord in the Chaotic Realm, which is blocked by Julius himself. But it's possible to access Chaotic Realm early with this glitch: . In my case, I also got the Chaos Ring for support (as I was in a NOUSE file).
