Once you have landed a couple of hits in quick succession, you will stun the boss and will have the opportunity of dishing out some insane amount of damage.

In addition to some physical damage-dealing attacks, the boss also deals some magic damage-dealing attacks. As soon as you see the boss coming up with magic damage-dealing attacks, head in and land a couple of attacks.

During the second phase of the boss battle, it is of paramount importance that you learn to dodge away from the 5-hit combo at the Soul of Cinder’s disposal as it cannot be blocked or parried!


Aside from this, the Soul of Cinder will also throw spears at your character from a distance. These spears deal a whole lot of damage, but leave the boss vulnerable to your attacks which is your cue to head in to deal some more damage and complete the boss fight.
