So I've been stuck on this boss for a long time now. Maybe I'll finally ask for a hint, since I'm likely to give up on the game at this point if I don't.
Here's what I've tried so far:
- I've tried knocking him down with a shield when he's praying.
- I've tried heavy attack, light attack, running heavy attack, running light attack, and various combos.
- I've tried running away to the farthest corner away from him.
- I've tried having a shelter spell on when his prayer finishes, but it's still over 2000 damage.
I did accidentally survive his prayer once: I was running away and I happened to be far enough away from those blue pools that show up when he's praying, and I think I happened to be under a shelter (there's a few of those in the area). Those are my two clues.
But I tried for over an hour to replicate that accidental discovery, but to no avail. I can't survive again. I've tried being under shelters, but I die instantly. I've tried to find my way away from the blue pools, but suddenly nothing looks far enough away from blue pools. If I could zoom camera out and play it from an overhead perspective, I could maybe find out if there's an shelter with less blue pools around it. But the camera is so close, I can't really tell which shelter I should try to hide under that's away from the blue pools enough to let me live.
Am I at least on the right track? What the fuck is up here? I'm starting to hate this fight since I can't figure it out. Stupid puzzles in my action game...grumble grumble.
All I need to know is how to survive when he's praying. Otherwise he doesn't seem all that threatening.
