Defeating the Scourged Sister
Upon entering the boss arena, eliminate the two enemies on the left before focusing on Delyth. She will be positioned at the bottom of the stairs with a blue health bar, indicating her protection by a parasite. Address this by either destroying the parasite using your Umbral Lamp or luring Delyth away from its range.
In her initial phase, Delyth is less effective at long-range, so utilise this by attacking from a distance to maintain control. As her health depletes to half, she will enter her second phase, becoming more aggressive and adopting a yellow orb around her head.
If the parasite is still intact, this phase transition provides an opportunity to destroy it; however, this is not mandatory if you’ve successfully drawn Delyth away. Utilise the red orbs at the base of the stairs for additional damage, and remain vigilant to her increased attack frequency, seizing opportunities to strike without becoming overly ambitious.
Delyth will also introduce bleed tornadoes that explode upon impact during this phase. These can be interrupted with throwables or magic if necessary.
