First, you need to start the encounter with Mudman. Since this is not a fated encounter, you can simply run away and escape combat. Once you do, turn around and approach Mudman from the side. Target its head with your VA ability and charge it. Attacking in this manner will blindside Mudman and give you a surprise attack. This greatly increases the amount of damage you inflict.

After finishing your surprise attack, run until you see the escaped combat text. Then, keep repeating this until you have defeated Mudman. The process should be relatively quick, and as long as you are careful, you should be able to defeat this boss no matter where you are powerwise.
