How to beat Fallen Archbishop Andreus
As usual, the boss fight against Fallen Archbishop Andreus is also divided into two different phases, each of which has its own difficulties.

During the first phase, the most important advice to follow is to dodge his attacks by moving forward, and then heading straight towards him. This way, it will be more difficult to be hit and therefore you will be safer. The first phase, however, is quite simple to manage, as the boss will mainly use combo strikes and slams to try to hit you. Consequently, the most effective strategy to follow in this first phase of combat against Fallen Archbishop Andreus is to dodge or block his attacks.
An attack you will need to pay particular attention to is the Body Slam. You will notice that the boss is about to use this attack because he will turn red. Fallen Archbishop Andreus will attempt to land a Fury attack before rising up and slamming into the ground. You could try to block this type of attack, but in all honesty, we tell you that doing so is very difficult, so it is easier for you to decide to dodge it.
Ultimately, for this phase, we advise you to pay attention and be patient, so that you can dodge and/or evade practically all of Fallen Archbishop Andreus' attacks and take advantage of the cooldown periods to hit the enemy. By adopting this strategy, you should be able to complete this first phase of the battle without too much difficulty.

This is when the second phase will begin and so things will become slightly more complicated than the previous one.

In addition to Fallen Archbishop Andreus' attacks, which will mostly include the attacks you had to deal with during the first phase, you will also have to pay attention to the new enemy's attacks, which will make it more difficult to parry and/or dodge the attacks. attacks. Our advice, in this case, is to try to attack the boss from the side or to focus on him rather than the new enemy. This way, you will run fewer risks and will have to counter attacks that are already familiar to you.
However, when you see blue particles around the boss, you will have to run as far away as possible, as Fallen Archbishop Andreus will be preparing to attack you with his magic aura blast. Avoiding it won't be very easy, especially the first few times you have to face this attack, also because it has a very wide range and will cover almost the entire battle arena.
In conclusion, the most effective strategy to be able to defeat this boss once and for all is to focus on the original boss and try to parry/dodge all his blows, always keeping an eye on the additional enemy.
