The Ent Strategies
There two different approaches to fighting this boss. You can either focus on the weak spot on it's back and you will obtain Spore Gland, or destroy its legs and then finish him to obtain Twisted Heart.
Phase 1 (Has legs):
This boss moves very slow, try to stay at a medium or long distance and aim for its back. It will use its legs to cast an AOE explosion, run backwards when it does. It will also lean and use its hands to slam the ground sending a shock wave at your direction. Use the opportunity to fire at its back. When at long range, it will lean forward opening his back and sending explosive balls at your location. Try to run to either side without stopping until the attack ends. Try to not stay too close, as it can scream staggering you while ads spawn. When this happens, deal with the ads first and then continue fighting the boss.
Phase 2 (Without Legs):
From this point its easier to fire at the weak spot on its back.
When its legs are cut, it will crawl at your direction to attack you. Wait until he is about to attack to run away. It will also occasionally stop, opening its back to launch explosive balls at you. Dodge them by running to either side until the attack ends.For both strategies:
When his health drops below 50% and thereafter, the Ent will roar occasionally and interrupt whatever you are doing to spawn Hallows. With practice, is easier to use the Ent's mechanics and Rot Warts against them than to waste ammo.
Attacks & Counters
|Phase 1 (Has Legs)
|Foot Slam: the boss will slam the ground with one foot, causing a damaging shock-wave.||Dodge forwards through the initial shock-wave. If you are close to the boss, this means dodging almost immediately as his foot hits the ground. Subsequent waves are for appearance only and will not damage you. Staying farther away will give you more time to dodge.|
|Hands Slam: the boss will slam the ground with its hands sending a shock wave towards your location||Dodge to either side. You can use the opportunity to fire at the weak spot. Eventually in the fight, the boss will repeat this attack twice in a row.|
|Launch explosive bombs: the boss will lean forward, attach its arms to the ground, open the neck area, and then throw explosives that arc to your location.||Run to either side until the attack finishes. Try and move in as straight lines as possible to avoid rot clouds, and to let remaining ads be killed by the bombs as they follow you.|
|Scream and summon ads: the boss will scream, staggering you and spawning Hollows.||Try to first deal with the ads before returning to damaging the boss. When the Ent is in animation preparing this attack, try and finish off any nearby Rot Warts so they do not suicide on you while you're locked in the stagger animation.|
|Phase 2 (Without Legs)
|Launch explosive bombs: It will lean forward opening the neck area and throwing explosives at your location||Run to either side until the attack finishes.|
|Melee Attack: It will crouch to your location and attack three times with its hands||Run backwards to dodge the attacks. The final vertical slam hits farther than the model suggests, so dodge to the side rather than away if you're anywhere near the boss by the time this attack happens.|
