Red Wolf of Radagon: Boss Fight Strategy
The Red Wolf of Radagon is an extremely agile creature that uses a lot of magic to dish out damage, as well as general swipes with its mouth. However, its biggest weakness is its own HP: it doesn't have much of it. As such, you can end this fight pretty quickly. You just need to get into positions to actually attack it.
The moves you need to look out for largely revolve around magic. At a distance, the boss will procure three blue magical spears that hone in on you at a quick pace. You can dodge these by rolling, but make sure you keep the wolf in your sights. Then there's its orange, magical blade. Attacking in front, it'll take two or three slashes and then put it away. You only have this one phase to worry about, so if you can learn its attack patterns, it'll be beaten in no time.
As usual, we recommend using Ashes like Lone Wolf Ashes to distract the boss. From there, you'll be able to freely hit it when it has its back turned to you. Just be aware that the magical spears will still target you, so watch out for them. When the boss leaps into the air with the orange blade in its mouth, roll into the attack. You won't take any damage if you time it right, and the boss will then be open to attack.
We actually found this boss much more manageable by jumping, both when attacking and getting out of the way. You can easily get out of the way of any swipes using this tactic, and combined with some Fire Grease, your blade will chop through that HP bar like butter. Red Wolf of Radagon is also somewhat weak to Slashing and Thrusting damage, so if you have a weapon with those perks, be sure to equip them.
