Again, as soon as the fight started, you will notice another four trees emerged from the ground. One out of four trees will be marked with a lighting line, indicating lighting will sooner or later strike upon the ground. The main flow of the fight is to evade his attacks while looking for the nearest tree with lighting mark.

As soon as you grapple to a tree with this mark, Wolf will be struck by lighting and have a chance to diverse that back to the Dragon. This is the very same technique you used to overcome Genichiro Way of Tomoe. The trick here is to make sure the lighting land. The Divine Dragon will twist his body when he performs any attacks. If you land the Lighting right at this point, you probably miss him. You can either delay your Lighting Shot a little after catching it, this will increase the chance of hitting him.

Another method is to grapple when you know he is just about to finish his attack. As you grapple on the tree, he will slowly back to his starting position, this will guarantee a hit as soon as you catch the lighting. During this period, if you miss or landed an attack to the Dragon, he will perform a Whirlwind to knock you away. And the lighting will appear on another tree.

After nearly filling up his posture bar, all four trees will disappear. And you will have to wait for them to appear once again to finish the Divine Dragon once and for all. During this phase, his attacks will be more aggressive, all of the Shock Wave Slash will have more hits, and he will also perform that normal Slash more often, make dodging him to be more difficult.

Your main task in this phase is to survive until the trees appear again. As soon as they appear, just repeat the process once more time. This time, delay the shot until he finally tries to devour you. If you land this shot, Wolf can perform a subsequent deathblow and finish the Divine Dragon.
