How To Beat The Godskin NobleGodskin Noble approaching the player.

There are two main strategies for this fight: you can either stick to his right side and hit his belly, or you can beam him to death.

Melee Strategy

Tarnished attacking the boss with a melee weapon.

The melee strategy is quite simple, as you only need to get used to his stab attacks. The only attacks to look out for are the Belly Shove and Body Slam. Even if you are close to the boss, you need to get out when Godskin Noble does these attacks. The boss usually follows up his attacks with the next ones pretty quickly, so you always need to be focused.

After every attack, you will get the chance to hit the boss for either one or two guaranteed hits. Do not hit more than that, or you will get severely punished for being greedy.

The Godskin Noble is weak to slashing damage and bleed status effects, so try to use a weapon with slashing and a high bleed chance. You can also send the Godskin Noble to sleep using several items or spells (such as a Sleep Pot) to get in a few easy attacks.

Summoning an online player will raise the boss’ health, but it will also let you take him down faster.

Ranged Strategy

The player using Sorcery to attack the boss.

For the ranged strategy, if you are having a lot of difficulties, you can go for the sorcery beam one shot as a last resort. To use this, you need to add the Cerulean Hidden Tear to your Wondrous Flask. This will let you use Comet Azur for more than ten seconds.

As the boss starts to walk towards you at the start of the fight, you have enough time to cast your Sorcery and keep hitting him till he comes over to you and attacks you interrupting your attack.

Summoning a Spirit Ash like Mimic Tear can help you prolong the duration of your spell as the Godskin Noble will likely attack your Spirit Ash instead of you.
