We keep knocking down the bosses in Elden Ring, but this guy was truly a brick wall. But you know, a brick wall eventually comes crumbling down and so did this guy.
Rykard Lord of Blasphemy is a nasty encounter, consisting of two phases. The first requires you to deal damage while avoiding his attacks. All of which can one-shot you if you aren’t paying attention. The second phase is more of the same, but now he has a massive sword that can reach you even if you’re not close to him. And a flaming skull attack that rains down from the sky and seems endless.
