How to defeat Juno Hoslow in Elden Ring
Juno Hoslow is a mighty boss that can deal immense Bleed and Strike damage using his Petal Whips and can dodge attacks at high speed using the Bloodhound’s Step.
Considering the severity of damage caused by his attacks, it is best to maintain a safe distance and execute your attacks using long-range Ash of War weapons. Backstab attacks are your key to winning because you can deal damage without reducing your health.
You can also defeat this beast by the Juno Hoslow Cheese Approach in which you climb the wall on your right and maintain a position where you can attack him but he is no longer able to attack you.
This strategy is only useful if you deal high damage as soon as your reach the higher point otherwise it will go in vain. In addition to weapons, Juno can also be fought using spells and incantations.
Once you have defeated Juno Hoslow you will receive his arsenal which will include Hoslow’s Helm, Hoslow’s Armor, Hoslow’s Gauntlets, Hoslow’s Greaves, Hoslow’s Petal Whip, Hoslow’s Oath Gesture, Rune Arc, and Furlcalling Finger Remedy. You will also be rewarded with 158 Runes.
After taking down Juno Hoslow, you can go back to Lady Tanith who will grant you the Talisman Taker’s Cameo and then transport you to another boss fight.
