Mad Pumpkin Head: Boss Fight Strategy

This is a rather generic boss that doesn't really have too much worth talking about besides the large metal jar on its head. No, it's not a pumpkin at all! If you happen to hit it, you'll need tiny amounts of damage, almost as if it were a shield. Instead, you'll want to summon some Ashes like Lone Wolf Ashes to distract Mad Pumpkin Head. Then get around to its backside for some easy slashes.

Repeat this process and you'll make light work of the boss. The only thing you should really pay attention to is the fact its attacks leave a Bleeding effect. Take too many and you'll start to lose HP even when blows aren't connecting. Once you're done, be sure to raise the door it was guarding. There's an NPC back there, Sorceress Sellen, selling items.
