Fighting Waterblight Ganon in Legend of Zelda is like Groundhog Day

Played Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Waterblight Ganon boss fight strategy and how to get Mipha’s Grace by Matthew ReynoldsMatthew Reynolds (Eurogamer.net)
How to defeat the Vah Ruta dungeon boss.

My gaming experience in Legend of Zelda was going so well, until I found myself facing Waterblight Ganon in the Divine Beast Vah Ruta. Defeating this creature requires a level of coordination that seems to elude me.

Waterblight Ganon, right before it smites me for the nth time.

I’m slowly getting the hang of jumping out of the way (although in some rounds, my special skill seems to be jumping into the path of Waterblight Ganon’s spear), but when it comes to switching to an attack, or using my runes to smash incoming blocks of ice, I just seem to hit the wrong buttons. And die. Repeatedly.

😫

Apparently this creature is the easiest of the four Divine Beast monsters, to boot. Hopefully this isn’t a case of me simply being the wrong generation to handle a dozen or so buttons on a controller. I don’t know how kids can be so coordinated.

Thankfully there are guides with tips on how to defeat these creatures. Unfortunately, you still need a level of skill to execute. My wife helpfully suggested that I just get my son to do this level for me. I’m tempted.
