The Boss of Pikemead Fighting Tips
Some basic advice to show how easy this boss is: his attacks all have horrible tracking aside the tailspin.
However you can fully avoid him ever useing tailspin.
First Off: Dont lock on. Its a pure downside as melee in this fight as all it does is slow you down.
Circle the dragon at medium distance. Do not attack. Wait for the dragon to attack you. Keep moveing. Never stand still. You dont have to sprint. His attacks will all miss by doing this. Then learn his attacks doing this. There is 2 attacks that go on for so long you have a free dps window in them.
The first shorter window is his breath attack. When he does it after he misses sprint towards his front claw and wail at it. Backoff the moment he finishes his attack animation. If you stay close hell use tailspin which is hard to read.
The other bigger window is his roar where he summons the small bugs. Rush towards him and wail away. You can hit his mouth to stun him aswell but the former is more braindead but takes longer to kill him. Choose what you want.
If the minions make it in just kill them. They have very low hp. Wait for his attack. Kill minions. Repeait till all minions are gone.
Repeat till death!
Beat him solo as level 11 melee 1h/shield guy. No water aura. He really isnt hard. No boss is in this game sadly. Bring health potions and bandages to heal yourself whenever you need to. Always wait for an attack and avoid it before healing with bandages.
