Starscourge Radahn: Boss Fight Strategy

The Starscourge Radahn boss fight is a very unique one since you're able to summon many NPCs all at once. With the boss way off in the distance, you're able to summon them all at the beginning of the fight. There'll be three summon signs directly in front of you at the start, then one to the left and another to the right. Summon all of them, but be sure to keep your eye on the boss. It will be firing arrows at you, which can be avoided by rolling at the right time. With all of the NPCs summoned, get on Torrent and ride up to the boss.

What you need to do is let the NPCs take the aggro from you while you get in behind and constantly slash at the boss' legs. Its attacks are deadly, either sweeping the ground at its feet or sliding along the surface waiting for the right opportunity. If you get caught up in a combo, you can die instantly. As such, play it safe and retreat when you have to for healing.

All of the NPCs will die at some point or another, but they can be summoned once again shortly after. Just look out for their summon signs on the ground nearby and they'll rejoin the fight. There's no cap on how many times they can be summoned, so don't worry about losing any of them permanently.

Once you get the boss' health down to 50 per cent, it'll leave the battlefield for a short time. Now you need to look up into the sky because Starscourge Radahn is falling back to earth as a huge fireball. When you see which direction the boss is coming from, ride in the opposite direction. Its impact with the ground can kill you instantly. With it back in the fight, continue as you were. Let the NPCs be its main attention and swipe at its legs to deal more damage. If you can break its Poise, there'll be a chance for a critical hit.

The boss deploys some magical attacks during this second phase also, firing spells at you. Most of these can be easily dodged, but watch out for when it places an elemental spell on its swords. That increase damage, thus spelling more danger for you.
