Bloodborne boss guide

Pthumerian Descendant  

May appear as a random boss in a Chalice Dungeon.

This old, but large foe isn’t too tough. He wields a sickle, which he'll attack with while lunging slashing. In both cases, sidestep around him to get at his weak back. After taking enough damage, he'll split the sickle into two. He'll use the same basic attacks, but learn a new leaping one. When he springs up, dash under him to avoid being pounced on. This attack will also break your lock-on, so be ready to swing the camera around and find him again.
