How To Beat Matriarch Celeste
Make sure you are leveled up enough to face this boss as it’s one of the most difficult ones. Matriarch Celeste used a staff and moves around the arena while lunging at you that deals massive damage.
This is when she leaves herself open to attack. Just dodge the lunge attack and land a few hits. But be careful of the area of effect attack right after she lunges.
