Grafted Scion: Boss Fight Strategy

The Grafted Scion is a boss with an absurd amount of limbs, and you've actually already encountered one of them before out in the open world: in Stormveil Castle. The first part of this boss fight will play out quite similarly to that engagement. The boss flails and jumps about, trying to get in as many hits as it can. You'll need to play it safe, keeping a good distance away from it while swords are swinging.

When it finishes an attack pattern, so a jump attack and follow it up with one or two blows. Make sure you have enough stamina to retreat, though, because Grafted Scion will already be winding up for another attack. You can tank these to a degree if you're levelled up enough, but don't get too complacent.

Once its health bar reaches roughly 50 per cent, it will cover two of its sword in magic, increasing how much damage they deal. This is also where the boss incorporates a big jump attack into its repertoire — another reason to stand well back and block almost all of the time. Continue to get one or two hits in here and there and you'll down the boss soon after. It doesn't have that much health, so it's a fairly easy kill now that you're a considerably higher level compared to the beginning of the game.
