Night's Cavalry: Boss Fight Strategy

Many of the same strategies observed in How to Beat Tree Sentinel apply to Night's Cavalry. You'll want to summon Torrent and attack from horseback, although try to get a feel for your opponent's weapon and speed. Generally Night's Cavalry are faster than the Tree Sentinel, so it can be harder to get in hits. Be patient, stay a fair distance away, and joust your way to victory.

It is possible to defeat Night's Cavalry's horse, at which point it's safe to get off Torrent and attack on foot. Keep in mind that after a short period, Night's Cavalry will summon another horse, so be prepared to continue the fight from horseback if necessary.

Be aware that the Night's Cavalry can leap and cover a lot of distance surprisingly quickly, so stay on your toes and maintain separation. If you don't like fighting from horseback, you can approach on foot, by waiting for him to charge and dodge-rolling to your left. This will give you a short window to strike at least a couple of times while Night's Cavalry turns around. It's a riskier approach, but possible.
