All of the bosses listed here are pertaining to the eastern side of Atlus Plateau. All stats, drops, and guides for them will be listed.
Mini Dungeon Bosses
Misbegotten Warrior & Perfumer Tricia
Health: 3,560 (Warrior)
Drops: 9,400 Runes, Perfumer Tricia Ashes
Immunity: Lightning, Holy Magic
Health: 1,024 (Tricia)
Drops: 9,400 Runes, Perfumer Tricia Ashes
Immunity: Elemental Damage, Scarlet Rot, Poison
Location: Unsightly Catacombs
This fight can be challenging if the Misbegotten Warrior is left unchecked, so it is best to take him out as fast as possible before the pair corner you. If you keep aggressive, and find a way to jump attack it to stagger it you can deal it a lot of damage off the bat, and potentially kill it before Miranda gets to you. Keep circling around it and look for parry openings and chances to guard break it to land a critical attack. The sooner this boss is killed, the better.
Summoning spirits like Lone Wolf Ashes can help, but the best way to take her down is killing the Warrior first. With him out of the way she is fairly easy, and does not have much health. Another strategy is to just take out Tricia quickly and fight the warrior, since she can do little to defend herself and will go down fast (she can be easily guard broken). However, with the Warrior out of view he can easily leap at you and deal lethal damage so it is a riskier strategy. Glintstone Sorceries will be the best go to for this fight.
Drops: 9,000 Runes, Somberstone Miner’s Bell Bearing (2)
Weakness: Strike, Standard, Poise Break
Immunity: Elemental Damage, Slash, Thrust, Poison, Scarlet Rot, Frost
Location: Atlus Tunnel
There will be two Crystalians for this fight, however the fight itself is the same as fighting any other Crystalian. One will be a ring user, and the other will be using a spear. The easiest option which may take a little longer is to kite them around the room. Use summons to distract the other so you can break their armor and deal insane damage with either strike damage or Glintstone Pebble. Nightmaiden’s Mist will also go a long way in chipping away health while you fight the other.
Ancient Hero of Zamor
Drops: 24,000 Runes, Ancient Dragon Knight Kristoff Ashes
Weakness: Fire, Lightning
Location: Sainted Hero’s Grave
This fight really is not too difficult, players only need to be cautious during their second phase around half health. Melee users should use a hit and run tactic, and keep circling around the Hero’s attacks. Keeping behind him is a great strategy for the first part of the fight, but be cautious of his chilling effect. around half health he will back away and coat his weapons in frost; he will also become exceedingly more aggressive and even utilize an AOE. However, during this phase the boss can be parried, so players can use this to their advantage.
Magic users will have an easier time since the boss is weak to fire and lightning, and has no immunity to magic. Players can really just hang back and pelt him with spells, but should be mindful of dodging and have a shield or their parry game ready if needed.
Drops: 10,000 Runes, Ash of War: Shared Order
Weakness: Thrust, Lightning
Immunity: Standard, Slash, Strike, Magic, Fire, Holy
Location: Atlus Highway
Night’s Calvary can be a huge pain if you attack unmounted, but there are some strategies to use on foot. This boss is a knight mounted on a horse, and both of them have separate health bars. You can knock him off the horse, but he will summon it back instantly if you do not keep attacking him. This is why I prefer mounted combat for the fight, because you can consistently keep up with him and attack his sides, or kite him with magic. If you want to attack him on foot, melee players should wait for the knight to charge you, and then attack after dodging through him rolling forward. Magic users should try to keep distanced and use spells that will attack both him and the horse for good measure. Lightning Spear and Glinstone Arc are great spells to use.
Drops: 10,000 Runes, Crimsonspill Crystal Tear, Speckled Hardtear
Location: Minor Erdtree
This is another easy fight, but greed can still become your undoing. So be mindful of Death Blight build up and its lethal grab attack. The best method for melee users is to keep behind this boss since it moves relatively slower and beat on him. Keep between his legs as he moves around and mind where the Death Blight clouds are so you do not accidentally die of the build up. Magic users may want to have Law of Regression and Order Healing up their sleeve since this fight may be more difficult due to its mid ranged puke and Death Blight attacks. Trees will provide an advantage for cover so you can move back and forth between hitting the boss with spells and hiding.
Drops: 14,000 Runes, Godskin Peeler, Scouring Black Flame
Weakness: Bleed, Slash
Immunity: Strike, Fire, Holy
Location: Windmill Village
This fight can be rather difficult, especially since this boss comes equipped with a lot of deadly moves between his black fame and his twinblade. Mid range is the best area to be to avoid a lot of attacks and close in for damage if you are melee. It is best to come equipped with damage negation spells or items, such as boiled prawns for physical damage negation. Bleed weapons will work wonders since he is weak to the status effect, so use an item that can use a coat or find a weapon with a bleed status effect with low requirements if you do not have a bleed/arcane build. Magic users will do best utilizing multi hit spells like Glintblade Phalanx. Be mindful over some of his attacks, for example his overhead attack will leave him an opening for a few hits but his stab and slash attacks have a quicker recovery time. Around 60 percent health he will start twisting his body around like a snack, and the moves are harder to judge dodging wise due to some awkward hit boxes. When he flings his torso and extends towards you dodge to either side, but when he stretches and swings his weapon around him, move close or run away. He can also use an AOE where he creates a whirlwind of black flames around him, and then plunges into the ground causing the black flames to burst, the best method is to run away.
Black Knife Assassin
Drops: 11,339 Runes, Black Knife
Weakness: Stab, Slash, Thrust, Frost
Immunity: Holy, Strike, Bleed, Scarlet Rot, Poison
Location: Sainted Hero’s Grave
The Black Knife Assassins are bosses in the game that can either be really easy or really annoying if they are invisible ones. Luckily, this particular Assassin does not turn invisible and can be staggered easily. Dex and strength fighters need only to hit her fast since she has no poise at all. Lone Wolf Ashes also serves as an easy distraction. Magic users need to keep her at a save distance and try to use spirit ashes to keep aggro.
Drops: 11,000 Runes, Somber Smithing Stone (5), Gravity Stone Fan, Gravity Stone Chunk
Weakness: Elemental Damage
Immunity: Physical Damage, Scarlet Rot, Poison, Bleed, Frost
Location: Near Outer Wall Phantom Tree
This fight can be all endurance based, especially since the boss has high armor, a lot of health, is fast, and hits like a brick. I found the fight to be 100 times easier on horseback, especially since the boss telegraphs its moves and you can dodge it faster with Torrent. The beast will often charge you three times in a row, use an upheaval attack, pound the ground with its head, and use gravity attacks. It is best to dodge as opposed to block attacks since a lot of his moves will guard break or deplete your endurance in general. Elemental attacks will be the best option for ranged users and melee if you have coats on hand. Frost damage especially helps the battle go faster. I utilized torrent and hit the beast with ranged attacks like black flame, but if you wanted to keep on the ground using summons like Jellyfish and Hoarfrost Stomp will do a lot of damage. Rotten Breath is another excellent option for the fight. The most important note to take for this fight is to keep moving and do not get greedy.
Tree Sentinel (2)
Drops: 20,000 Runes, Erdtree Greatshield, Hero’s Rune (1)
Location: Leyndell Western Gate
Unless you want to hate your life, run past them to grab the grace behind them first. This way you can kite one sentinel at a time making your life way easier. Then you can fight them as normal one at a time, and as previously stated the fight is a give and take. These bosses telegraph their moves and can be easily dodged, you need only to roll away and hit. Rinse and Repeat the method until you kill one, and then you can focus on the other. Keep in mind they utilize a lot of moves that can be deadly, including when they leap in the air and slam down on their shield using an AOE attack that can actually one shot you. Shields like the Heater Shield with damage negation can end up saving your life if you dodge the wrong way and see your life flash before your eyes. Magic users need only to keep a good distance away unless using close range spells. Using Torrent can make the fight go a lot easier for casters that need to keep their distance.
Godefroy The Grafted
Drops: 26,000 Runes, Godfrey Icon
Location: Golden Lineage Evergaol
This fight will be very similar to fighting Godrick, however there is no tearing off a dragons head and using it as a flamethrower. This fight will also be a lot of run in, hit, and dodge or run away as before. Keep mid range and attack after he finished his chain attacks that are again, very similar to Godrick. He will even use the wind gust move that leaves a decent window to land some damage. Try to keep to his back as much as possible, and do not get greedy when his chain attacks end. Run out immediately after landing a few blows. Magic users should also keep midrange and constantly stick to his back side, and stick to quick spells if possible.
