How to Kill Micolash, Host of the Nightmare in Bloodborne on PS4

Time to Awaken

Micolash, Host of the Nightmare in Bloodborne is a funny chap with a funny hat, and his fight follows as such. Rather than a traditional brawl, or even a slightly less traditional game of hide and seek, this battle will be a chase for the most part, with bits of easy combat splashed in between.

How to Kill the One Reborn in Bloodborne on PS4

Reborn, redead

A slab of rotten flesh? Brilliant.

How to Defeat the Celestial Emissary in Bloodborne on PS4

Take me to your leader

The Celestial Emissary in Bloodborne is found at the top of The Choir, deep in the Orphanage.

How to Kill Rom, the Vacuous Spider in Bloodborne on PS4

Arachnid alert

You'll encounter Rom, the Vacuous Spider in Bloodborne after a relatively short trek through Byrgenwerth culminating in a jarring leap of faith.

Toil and trouble

And now it's time for something a little more tedious.

How to Beat the Blood-Starved Beast in Bloodborne on PS4

You can kill it if it bleeds

Nothing says 'nice and approachable' quite like the name Blood-Starved Beast – but that's because this third Bloodborne boss isn't exactly BFF material. A spindly monster coated with matted fur and dripping with poison, this antagonist's really going to prove a match for your hunting skills. No time to get complacent...
