There are two main strategies for this fight:

Melee strategy

For melee strategy, the best way to fight the boss would be to stay close to the boss at all times. If you move too far away, the boss will change position and perform ranged attacks, which are deadly due to their high damage.. The boss’ attacks are slow, allowing you to dodge quite easily to the side the attack is coming from. This allows you to get a few counters before you prepare to dodge another attack.

As the boss is weak against Lightning, it would be a good idea to use weapons that you can put lightning grease on.

The boss is also likely to Hemorrhage and Scarlet rot. This allows you to use rotten breath, Fat RotWhere Rotting Ekzykes to inflict on the boss Scarlet Rot, which gradually reduces health. If you use a katana or bleed katars, you can attack multiple times to increase the bleed effect, possibly causing bleeding.

You can also use Torrent, your steed, to move around the area and dodge most of the boss’ attacks. Positioning behind him is much easier on Torrent, giving you time to attack and get out, and therefore avoid taking damage.

Remote strategy

For the remote strategy, your best option is to use Torrent. Playing as a ranged class will cause the boss to use ranged attacks more often. They are harder to dodge than his melee attacks, so try not to use sorceries that have long cast times – the hunter is quite aggressive and can interrupt your throw with a shield slam. Swift Glistening Stone Shard and rock slingshot are exceptional choices, and you can throw them quickly to rack up some serious damage. You can spam Swift Glintstone Shard while riding Torrent, and that way you’ll dodge any attacks the boss throws at you.

If you’re using a Faith version, try to use all the Lightning spells you have. As these bosses are optional, you can come back to them later in the game once you get your hands on better lightning spells..

Fortissax Lightning Spear, Horned traitand lightning spear are some of the best incantations you can use to exploit the hunter’s weakness to lightning.

Fortissax’s Lightning Spear is an incantation you can acquire after defeating Lichdragon Fortissax and remembering Enia fingerprint reader at a round table.

Also, since some fights take place near Merchant Shacks, be sure to deal with enemies in nearby areas. They have the potential to get in your way, reducing your chances of defeating the boss.
