Hadern can be a challenging foe, and he will likely beat you on your first try, but if you play safe and time your hardening right, you can beat him and earn a Glimpse of Reverie which provides you 15 Glimpses.

Tutorial Area - Hallowed Sword

Hadern use the same sword as you do, the Hallowed Sword. He will also be able to use the Mechanical Spike ability which you won't.

When the fight starts he will run towards you and jump with his sword, you can dodge behind him and strike him one or two times. The Hallowed sword has medium reach, so you will need to stay close to him to deal damage. Dodge his attacks and then strike back, if he swings back at you use your hardening ability to avoid the damage, dodge backwards and wait for the hardening to recover to engage him again.

You will sometimes stagger him with your attacks, when this happens try to keep pushing to deal as much damage as you can. Remember that you can use the hardening while attacking.

Remember that you can find 3x Mortal Token on the tutorial area that you can use during this fight.

When he uses the Foundry Stone ability stay back and wait until it wears off

Eternal Narthex - Hammer and Chisel

Hadern will be using the Hammer and Chisel during this fight. The hammer and chisel is a fast weapon but deals very low damage. Eredrim is a good choice as he can tank the damage without problem.

When he uses the Perfumed Censer run as far away as you can or use you harden to avoid the damage.
