If you’ve been looking for a quick guide to beating Rykard, Lord of Blasphemy in the Elden Ring, you’ve come to the right place. In this guide, I’ll give you some tips to survive his magical attacks and stun-locking ability. I’ll also discuss using a ranged summon, avoiding the rykard’s magic attacks, and how to use a special weapon to avoid stun-locking him.
Using a ranged summon
Using a ranged summon is a great way to defeat the infamous Rykard, Lord of Blasphemy. His massive scale, God-devouring Serpent, and unique weapon gimmick make him an incredibly difficult boss to beat. However, there are a few strategies that will help you wrest the upper hand.
First, make sure to avoid the God-Devouring Serpent. It has several key attacks that can be avoided or minimized. When it lunges from the side, you must be able to dodge the attack. If you’re lucky, you can dodge his bites – but be careful! If you can’t dodge the serpent, he will unleash an army of fiery skulls at you. While it’s possible to dodge these attacks, be aware of the fact that the skulls will explode in a short time.
You can also try using a Serpent-Hunter to get an advantage. Using a Serpent-Hunter will allow you to deal maximum damage with your two hands. With this spell, you can easily take out Rykard’s first form. It’s also a good idea to buff your hero with buffs that prevent fire damage and increase your damage output. You should also use a ranged Spirit Summon to distract Rykard.
While Rykard’s sword has a long range, it is still very effective in knocking over enemies. He’ll occasionally swing his sword toward you, which will knock you back. If he swings his sword toward you, it’s easy to avoid this attack by doing a side-to-side dodge or moving away from it.
While it’s important to note that a ranged summon won’t have much effect on the ending of Elden Ring, using one will give you the upper hand in completing the quest chain. The key is to make sure that you can deal with Rykard early. This way, you won’t end up locking out the questline with Lady Tanith.
You’ll also want to avoid Rykard’s Ultimate Sword Smash. This attack uses four moves, including a downward slash, a sword-drag to the right, and a thrust into the ground. Be careful to keep your distance during this move because the Ultimate Sword Smash will hit you with a massive amount of force, but you can dodging away at the last second before it hits you.
Avoiding rykard’s magic attacks
Rykard, Lord of Blasphemy is an optional boss found in Elden Ring. He can be fought either with Spirit Ash or online with other players. He drops Reme, which can be traded with Finger Reader Enia. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can fight him with more than one party, or with your party if you’re a group. In the end, the reward for a successful fight with Rykard is a ring of shards.
While fighting Rykard, keep an eye out for his magic attacks. He uses them to empower himself. A good strategy is to dodge or sprint in between his attacks, or use Great-Serpent Hunt to interrupt his casting. Once he’s done casting, he’ll go back to his normal moveset.
One of Rykard’s most common attacks is his sword. His first attack is a feint, and the second one is a strong stab. The fourth attack causes the ground to erupt. Luckily, there’s a way to avoid this attack by standing on it, which cancels its attack animation.
If you’re not confident enough to defeat Rykard, the best strategy is to use the Serpent-Hunter weapon. You can find it near the corpse as you approach the boss gate. This weapon has special moves that make it more powerful and effective against Rykard. It can also hit Rykard from a distance.
To defeat Rykard, you need to complete the contract killings for Lady Tanith at Volcano Manor. Once you complete the contracts, you can approach Rykard for an audience. You can also check Hayden’s Elden Ring walkthrough for more information.
Using a special weapon
If you can’t beat Rykard with your normal weapons, you should use a special weapon, such as a sword. This type of weapon can interrupt a certain spell, such as a ranged attack, and will allow you to deal more damage. It can also help you interrupt the casting of certain abilities.
Using a special weapon can help you kill Rykard in the Elden Ring quest. In this way, you will be able to get his ring and destroy him. It will also give you an advantage when dealing with other enemies in the game. You can also summon a strong melee spirit to distract him.
The Elden Ring is available for all players, and works even when you are not responsible for the death of an enemy. You can also use this ring in combination with other weapons, such as the Talisman. The Elden Ring can be activated in the Divine Tower of West Altus, which is located southwest of the Leyndell Ramparts. The Elden Ring is available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
If you use a lava sword to damage Rykard, the damage will be more significant. A lava sword has a special trait called “fire damage” which can be useful for aggressive players. Additionally, a lava sword can be used to hit Rykard from a distance and throw a huge gust attack. The wind of fire damage that is generated by these weapons can easily destroy Rykard. Using a lava sword is a good idea, but you need to be able to dodge Rykard’s attacks. It is important to note that Rykard is a large creature, and its movement is slow.
When fighting Rykard, you should remember that he doesn’t parry attacks, and he has a special attack that can’t be parried. Thankfully, you can make this easier by summoning the Mimic Tear Spirit. This special weapon can copy your equipment, such as a blade of light, and attacks Rykard on its own. In addition to summoning this special weapon, you can also summon a Serpent-Hunter and use the Mimic Tear Spirit to attack Rykard.
As you can see, a special weapon will definitely help you out in Rykard’s arena fight. A snake on Rykard’s back can also follow up your sword attacks. To counter this, you should try to stand next to a God-Devouring Serpent and aim your blade towards the lava to gain fire resistance and stabbing power.
Takingr’s Flame attack vs stun-locking rykard
Takingr’s Flame attack is a great combo finisher, but you have to dodge its incoming waves and avoid the damage. This attack is quite difficult to dodge because it causes an explosion wave in front of your character. You can also block this attack to minimize the damage.
When faced with a Rykard, it’s important to be mindful of the ring’s location. If you’re not paying attention to its location, you might end up getting stuck on a pillar or on the edge of an area. To avoid this, be aware of where your opponent is by keeping the distance between you and the area you’re defending.
The Takingr’s Flame attack is extremely effective against Rykards, but it’s not the best choice if you’re facing the god-devouring Serpent. The Serpent-Hunter’s slash is more powerful than the Flame attack and will stun-lock Rykard. Nonetheless, it is one of the best late-game Spirit Ashes in Elden Ring. It can deal massive damage to the boss and it uses two Serpent-Hunters, which are both fantastic. This attack is extremely strong and has very good range. The light attack is very useful for stabs, while the heavy attack provides a wide sweep. When combined with the Serpent-Hunter’s lunge/thrust combo, it can
The Strike is effective in dealing damage and building FP. The two-part strike usually stuns the boss and causes huge damage. Free hits and jumping attacks are also effective ways to break the boss’s Poise meter.
The God-Devouring Serpent and the Rykard boss fight is a unique boss fight in Elden Ring. The game mechanics involved are different from the usual combat, and players might find themselves confused with this mechanic.
