Mohg, Lord of Blood: Boss Fight Strategy

As his name would suggest, Mohg, Lord of Blood specialises in Bleed damage. After all, the surrounding area is absolutely covered in the red, bodily substance. As usual, however, you're going to want a +10 Mimic Tear Ashes to accompany you for this fight. Allow it to take aggro so you can freely attack from behind, but beware of its attacks which build up the aforementioned Bleed damage.

The defining mechanic to this fight is a move that triggers the beginning of the second phase, where Mohg, Lord of Blood gains wings and starts to fly about the arena. Before then, the boss is placing red circles around you. Once three circles are present and the boss loses roughly half of its health, it will chant a spell that takes three huge chunks out of your health and heals it. If you don't have the Mohg's Shackle item that counteracts this, your only option is to begin chugging from the Sacred Flask to ensure you survive. If you don't do this, you will die. Just spam the Square button as it's happening and you should survive.

During the second phase, continue as you were: allow the Mimic Tear Ashes to take aggro and balance attacking and healing. The boss will occasionally spread fire across the arena, so watch out for that also. With a giant spear in hand, it will regularly try to poke you with it as well as slam the ground near to you in order to deal damage. During this phase, something like a Flamedrake Talisman would be useful. Also continue to watch out for Bleed damage, because if the meter fully fills, you'll lose a lot of HP all at once.
