The Lords of the Fallen Abiding Defender Lirenne and Kyra boss is a fairly difficult fight to overcome. In fact, in most cases, in Lords of the Fallen you will have to fight against a single enemy, while, in this case, there will be two enemies to defeat. And, unlike the Bringer of Stillness which was a fairly simple boss fight, in this one, you will have to fight against two armed guardians. For this reason, in this article, we have decided to show you the best strategies to follow to prevail and emerge victorious from this match.
How to beat Abiding Defender Lirenne and Kyra in Lords of the Fallen
Although this boss fight is made up of two opponents to defeat, it is not divided into two distinct phases like other Lords of the Fallen bosses, but you will have to fight them both at the same time. The first thing to take into consideration is that Lirenne and Kyra will use different types of attacks. The first will focus mainly on melee attacks, while the second on the use of spells. Furthermore, another very important thing to know before you get into the fight is that, once one of the two dies, the other will try to resurrect his deceased companion.
As regards the attacks and strategies to follow, our first advice is not to think of having to kill Kyra first as she uses spells. In fact, choosing to go down this path is actually counterproductive and won't help you simplify things, also because Kyra is still able to use melee attacks. Instead, our advice is to try to have the two guardians split up, with Lirenne staying close to you and Kyra remaining further away. This is the most effective way to fight them, as Kyra's spells are slow and quite easy to avoid, so you can focus more on Lirenne's devastating combos.
As for the actual attacks, Lirenne will use multi-string attacks and a sword slam to try to hit you. Furthermore, she is also capable of launching a projectile capable of inflicting holy damage. The safest and most effective strategy to use to defeat this opponent is to try to deflect his blows. In this way, in fact, you will be able to induce Lirenne into a stagger state which will allow you to land your shots and greatly reduce her health bar.
Since, as soon as one of the two sisters dies, the other will try to revive the deceased one, we also advise you to hit Kyra and not completely kill Lirenne until Kyra has at least 50% of her life. In this way, in fact, you will be able to defeat Kyra before she manages to revive Lirenne. If not, you'll have to fight Lirenne again too and that's definitely a scenario you don't want to happen.
Ultimately, this is everything you need to know about this Lords of the Fallen boss fight. Although it is not so simple to complete since you will have to fight with two opponents who have the possibility of being revived, the moveset of the Abiding Defender Lirenne and Kyra is certainly not that varied. Indeed, they only have a couple of attacks each in their arsenal, although Lirenne's especially manage to inflict huge amounts of damage. Furthermore, you must also pay attention to the fact that both Kyra's spells and Lirenne's sword are imbued with Radiant magic, so they can inflict holy damage on you if you get hit.
However, with a little patience and following our main advice to try to divide Lirenne and Kyra in such a way as to have more time to dodge the shots of both and to focus mainly on Lirenne and then kill Kyra and Lirenne almost simultaneously so as not to give either of them the chance to revive the other, you will certainly be able to defeat the Lords of the Fallen Abiding Defender Lirenne and Kyra boss. Once you do this, you will receive as a reward for your hard work a Vestige Seed, the Ebonlight Abiding Defender Sword, the Abiding Defender Helmet, and the Divine Arms spell. Furthermore, by opening the chest found in the arena, you can also obtain a Flail of Wisdom.
