Erdtree Avatar: Boss Fight Strategy

The Erdtree Avatar is a sort of large, walking tree that carries a huge staff. Its main ways of attacking revolve around swinging the staff in its vicinity, hoping it gets a hit in on you. It also has an area of effect attack where it slams the ground, which you should be careful of if you spend too much time close to it. As the fight progresses the Erdtree Avatar uses more and more magical attacks, eventually firing yellow, magical spears about the battlefield.

We recommend tackling this fight using Torrent — you'll be able to move about much quicker (dodging its attacks) and deal more damage. Begin by activating Ashes like Lone Wolf Ashes to distract the boss while you attack it from behind. You should find you're dealing fairly good damage with each hit, but if not, boost your attack power with Fire Grease.

Don't forget the Erdtree Avatar becomes more aggressive with its attacks as the fight goes on, so always stay on your toes even if this seems like a fairly simple boss fight.
