Aldrich, Devourer of Gods is a Lord of Cinder. Automatically, it makes it harder to beat and more annoying to finish. Some tips for ya’.

Aldrich, Devourer of Gods, upon meeting, will greet you with arrow barrages. Avoid those by backing out quite far from him. Use pillars a temporary shield from them.

It will use Soul Spear attack; an attack, which follows you and can get through pillars. It does quite a lot of damage, so be careful. Rolling is your friend. Seize the opportunity to strike Aldrich, Devourer of Gods, while it is focusing on its attacks while at the same time, letting its guard down.

After striking it, dodge its attacks for as much as you can. Aldrich, Devourer of Gods will use its large Polearm weapon to strike you with a large force. While dodging is important, try to stay next to it, while it uses melee attacks -- it will provide you with an opportunity to strike Aldrich, Devourer of Gods for at least two-three times.

A thing to note, Aldrich, Devourer of Gods uses teleportation. Especially after getting hit by your weapon. Calculate your moves accordingly and act fast. If you’re too slow, it might get you from a distance.

Aldrich, Devourer of Gods uses an AoE attack. Avoid that one at any costs. If you see Aldrich, Devourer of Gods lifting its staff -- roll back. The damage that its AoE does is immense. The AoE attack is usually performed while you stand near it. Watch out and for any reason you might think you have, don’t go all in.

After Aldrich, Devourer of Gods reaches approximately 60% of health, it will go into Phase 2.

Phase 2 empowers Aldrich, Devourer of Gods’ attacks. It might get hectic, but if you keep your cool, it won’t be that much of an annoyance.

Aldrich, Devourer of Gods, in Phase 2, will start to use more powerful attacks:

  • An arrow barrage becomes impossible to survive, so just run for as long as you can. Avoid every single one of those arrows. Don’t get tempted while it charges the attack - it is safer to run from the monster;
  • Aldrich, Devourer of Gods will be followed by fire trail, so try to stay in front of the boss, when it comes to looking for openings to deliver your blows;
  • The beam becomes an obliterating nuisance. It’s so massive in terms of damage, that it completely destroys the pillars, that you previously might have used as a shield;
  • Aldrich, Devourer of Gods, will have bigger openings to strike you down, as you’ll be keeping your distance more frequently. Watch out for its combos.

It might sound too simple but essentially the things that you should to effectively beat the Aldrich, Devourer of Gods boss go something like this:

  • Avoid Aldrich, Devourer of Gods’ attacks and spells;
  • Strike, when you see an opening;
  • Don’t go all in;
  • Be patient.
