Solarus the Immaculate Easy Kill Strategy
This is going to be a multi-phase boss fight and each phase has its own tips and tricks you need to beat Solarus easily.
In the first phase of the Solarus fight, he’ll use a few different attacks, like a basic melee slash and a spinning blade attack. Be careful when he shoots out a straight blade, as two other blades will jut off to the sides and come back to him at a 15% angle.
Move out of the way of the single blade and then step right back in front of the boss to continue the fight; this is the easiest way to dodge these blades as far as we know.
Watch for small beams of light he throws at you in a specific pattern. The spacing between the beams gets larger the further away you are from the boss, making it easier to dodge this attack.
Solarus likes to dash towards you throughout phase 1, summoning small holy lights. These attacks are damaging and can stun you, so it’s important to stay in front of the boss’s path and move off to the side to avoid taking damage.
The boss will occasionally move to the center of the room and spawn two holy wells that shoot out large balls of holy energy. These attacks don’t do much damage, so there nothing to worry about unless your health is really low.
The main goal in phase 1 is to deal as much damage to Solarus as possible. The best method is to immediately start the fight by using your ultimate ability, to have it available again before the end of the fight.
Familiarize yourself with Solarus’ core moveset as much as possible to prepare for phase 2, which gets much tougher.
It’s vital to keep restoring your health by using Sanguine Coil; this way, you can keep yourself topped off so long as you don’t make any crucial mistakes. This is essential when things get more chaotic. When Solarus reaches 50% health, he’ll summon an Angel Avatar. before phase 2 starts, the boss will summon an angel minion but avoid attacking her for now.
Target the boss and wait for it to become invulnerable; that’s when you start to attack the angel and hopefully bring it down before phase 2.
It’s important to continue focusing on the boss and the Fallen Angel. The move set outlined should also allow you to damage both targets. Once the boss is defeated, shift your focus to the Fallen Angel and take it down. It’s essential to remain focused and use your entire arsenal of abilities to make this phase as easy as possible. Remember to target the right target at all times. Overall, Phase 2 is considered easier than Phase 1, so stay calm and focused on bringing down Solarus successfully.
