After absorbing some damage, the boss will teleport away and you will have to force the entire process again. An important thing to note here is that the Crystal Sage takes a while to re-appear after teleporting which can be used to use an Estus Flask.

During the second phase of the boss battle, he will summon a total of 3x decoys. You will easily be able to distinguish the decoys from the actual boss by their blue attacks and the fact that they stick close to one another.

In addition to this, the decoys will go down in a single hit which will allow you to eliminate them all with a single hit. Aside from this, all the attacks at the boss’s disposal primarily remain the same. Just stick to the strategy provided above to complete!
