Rennala’s Phase 2

Unfortunately, once you Rennala down to zero health in the first phase, it isn’t over. FromSoftware wouldn’t make this very important boss that easy now, would they? After the cutscene plays at the end of Phase 1, Phase 2 will then begin. At the beginning of Phase 2 you are no longer in her classroom with her students. Instead, you are transported over some sort of body of water where you will finish out the battle.

Perhaps the best thing that you can bring into the Phase 2 part of this fight is the Lone Wolf Spirit Ashes. The Lone Wolf Spirit Ashes spawns a pack of three wolves that will help you defeat Rennala. As the wolves are attacking Rennala, she will begin to fight back at them. During this time, you can attack Rennala while she is dealing with the pack of wolves and do tons of damage in the process. If Rennala is focused on attacking you with her spells, then the wolves are doing damage while you can’t.

Another reason why the Lone Wolf Spirit Ashes are really amazing for this fight is because anytime Rennala gets hit, it jolts her back and denies her of casting any of her spells. Since there are three wolves that are being summoned with these Spirit Ashes, she will be getting hit a lot more often and thus won’t always have the chance to cast any of her spells. Stay as aggressive as you can during this fight and things will end well for you. It is probably the best type of Spirit Ashes you can use in a fight like this.

During the whole second phase, Rennala is going to be pelting you with tons of her spells. These are simple to dodge and that is all you have to do to counter her spells. Stay focused and patient and dodge these spells when you can and when you do, go in for a big attack.

Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon is also magic resistant. If you go into this fight with some sort of magic build, you can be in trouble. Instead of using a magic build, using a bleed build would be ten times better. Rennala is susceptible to Bleed so anything that is going to add that Bleed effect to any of your Armaments is going to help you out tons in this fight.

Flask of Crimson Tears is also going to be your best friend in this boss fight. It would probably be a great idea to upgrade your Flask of Crimson Tears more than your Flask of Cerulean Tears because HP is going to be way more important than FP in this battle. At the end of the day, Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon is definitely a boss that can be defeated consistently if you are correctly prepared for a boss fight like this. Phase 1 is miles easier than Phase 2 and ultimately, all your preparing should be focused on the Phase 2 of this boss fight.
