Defeat Pieta In Lords Of The Fallen
Pieta is the second boss; a corrupted knight in Lords of the Fallen.
She serves the fallen god Adyr and guards the entrance to the Skyrest Temple.
To defeat Pieta, you need to learn her patterns, dodge or parry her attacks, and strike when she is vulnerable.
Here are some tips and strategies for the Pieta boss fight:
1. Interact With Spectral Figure
Before entering the arena, you can summon an NPC ally, the Iron Wayfarer.
However, you must have spoken to him before and exhausted his dialogue.
He can distract Pieta and deal some damage to her.
Therefore, to do this, interact with the spectral figure outside the arena.
2. Dodge Pieta’s Attacks In First Phase
Pieta has two phases. In the first phase, she mainly uses her sword to perform two or four-swing combos: a sweeping attack, a beam attack, and a jump swing.
You can dodge or parry these attacks and counterattack when she pauses; block her attack with your shield.
Additionally, you can use fire items to enhance your weapon damage and dodge it by rolling to the side.
3. Dodge Pieta’s Attacks In Second Phase
In the second phase, Pieta transforms into a four-winged knight and gains new attacks.
She summons spectral figures that fly across the arena, drop holy lances and retreat to the back.
Further, she lunges forward with a cluster of swords in the air, flies around the arena and shoots beams at you.
You need to avoid these attacks by moving to the sides or dodging at the right time.
Further, move to either side of the arena, not just the middle lane.
You can also use this opportunity to heal or buff yourself.
Moreover, you can dodge Pieta’s homing bolts attack by rolling or sprinting away from them.
4. Stagger Pieta
You can perform a critical hit on her if you manage to stagger Pieta by kicking, parrying, or using a heavy attack.
However, you need to be fast as she recovers quickly from being staggered.
