Flame Lurker Boss Fight
The Flame Lurker boss is the second boss you must beat in World 2-2 or the Burrowed King’s Archstone. It is one of the bosses with flashy entrances and cutscenes, and is difficult to beat!
Here are the things you need to know when fighting Flame Lurker:
- This boss is very aggressive, fast, and has attacks that can cripple your character if you’re cornered, so always dodge-roll.
- Flame Lurker is covered in flames and always activated, so you will get damaged if you come too close to it.
- Its favorite attack pattern is straightforward but fatal. It rushes to you and gives one strong attack, then pauses and attacks again. So get ready to dodge or put up your shield to minimize the damage. What I do is dodge-roll or walk behind Flame Lurker. And once I’m behind him, I use a flurry of attacks to damage it.
- When using a healing item, dodge his attacks first and keep a distance before healing. Flame Lurker usually pauses after an attack. That’s the time you should heal. Otherwise, it will surprise you by rushing to you and give you a deadly blow.
I also tried using arrows on Flame Lurker when he’s far from me to damage it. However, I find it ineffective because using arrows is slow, and this boss can close the distance in a split second. So, I stick to using my sword and shield.
A little patience, git-gud (skills), a great attack strategy, and keeping your HP high is the key to winning and beating Flame Lurker. You can do it; don’t be discouraged and give up that easily.
It will drop a Searing Demon Soul, 22,500 souls (that’s a lot!), turning you into a human form again. Beating this boss is rewarding, isn’t it?
