Morgott, the Omen King: Boss Fight Strategy
Bearing a very big resemblance to Margit, the Fell Omen from Stormveil Castle, this new form uses a lot of similar attacks along with a handful of new ones. The main strategy here is to simply keep your distance: summon Melina before the fight begins and have her take lead during the first phase of the fight. She's surprisingly strong, taking a lot of attacks before Morgott kills her. While he focuses his attacks on the NPC, it'll be your job to slash and attack from behind, getting in a few hits before retreating again. When he's at a distance, we strongly recommend once again using your Ashes of War abilities. Something like Storm Blade works well since you don't have to be up close for it to work.
When Morgott's health reaches 50 per cent, the fight enters its second phase. The boss will suddenly crouch down, seemingly leaving itself open for attacks. However, you're going to want to back away at this point because it's about to send out a huge AOE thrust that takes away a ton of HP. This move also turns the floor of the arena into fire, which sends up flames occasionally. You don't need to worry about it too much; it rarely causes any damage.
At this stage in the fight or quite soon after, Melina is likely to die. You must have an Ashes summon on back up for this second phase — Lone Wolf Ashes, as always, works quite well. With another distraction on the field, you'll need to do the same thing you were doing in the first phase: waiting for your partner to take aggro and then run in behind with a few quick attacks. Despite the importance of this fight, it's a relatively simple boss to master. His attack patterns are easy to recognise and counter, and dodging out of the way does the trick most of the time.
Without any obvious weaknesses, you'll need to stick to what you've been doing up until now. No matter whether that's specing into a sword and shield, implementing magic spells, or something else entirely. Any approach is viable to beating Morgott, the Omen King.
