Welcome to the boards Chocolate, and kudos for scoring that nickname before anyone else.
Alright so If you help Dimbo's brother out, he'll stock you up with 99 of each kind of fire seed. Dimbo, is hidden on the river of fears and Nimbo (of course I could be getting the names backwards..) is hidden on the Labyrinth level.
Once you have that many seeds, you should be in good shape for the first part of the strategy.
Next you'll need a powerful magic spell. Either the stone or ice spell will do, but the Ice Wall spell is greatly superior.
So when you're fighting Xichra hit her with a fire seed to get her down, and then blast her with your most powerful spell while she's down (and vulnerable). It should go by pretty quickly if you're good at dodging those spike balls.
Also, (if you really need the extra help keep reading) Smite Rings are the best when those cannons start spinning, they have the same effect of knocking her down.
Good to hear people still play this game, I myself am working on a level set for it.
