Night Fox Yoho Introduction
Night Fox Yoho is the third Raid Level 5 Guardian and you need to be at least 1370 Item Level to enter this Guardian Raid. This Guardian drops Tier 3 Accessories, Upgrade Materials and Ability Stones as well as rare drops including Runes, Engraving Books and Cards. It takes 10% more damage from Light Element skills and the recommended Combat Items are: HP Potion, Destruction Bomb, Whirlwind Grenade and Flare.
This Guardian has 4 phases. The first transition into phase 2 happens within a few minutes of the encounter. The Guardian advances to phase 3(first escape) and later to phase 4(second escape), upon escaping to a different battle area. Yoho is a guardian with tons of AoEs and high hitting skills. If you don't have a support class shielding you or don't have great gear, it can be a really hard and potion consuming fight. To reduce the damage you take, you have to kill the 2 Fox Ladies who are spawned frequently by Yoho. Once you kill a Fox Lady, they drop 2 orbs each. By picking up an orb grants a stackable defense buff up to 3 times, let the squishy classes pick those up first. Once everyone has 3 stacks, you can pick up the orbs in rotation to reset the buff timer.
Be careful, there are a few skills and mechanics that can turn you or your teammates into Fox Ladies for about 20 seconds. If a player gets turned into a Fox Lady, they won't be able to use any normal skills. In addition to that, you can take damage from the boss's and teammate's skills. If you fail a core mechanic and get turned into a Fox Lady, make sure to run away from the boss and your teammates.
Disclaimer: This Guardian has a lot of patterns in common with Flame Fox Yoho. This article focuses only on the unique and important attack patterns of Night Fox Yoho.

Special Interactions & Patterns
There is a stagger check every 60 seconds during Phase 3 and if you fail to stagger the boss, everyone is turned in to Fox Ladies. Consider using Whirlwind Grenade if your party lacks Stagger Damage.
Combo Charge Attack
Night Fox Yoho howls loud and spawns 4 clones that appear in cardinal or ordinal directions. It can be hard to see which variant Yoho will use, so avoid damage and be prepared to go near or far from Yoho after the initial swing.
