How to Beat the Nashandra (FINAL BOSS) - Dark Souls 2

Dark Souls 2 is a great game. It really is. What pissed me off is that they
lost their method of making things difficult. Gwyn was hard just due to his
sheer skill, aggression, and toughness. This "Nashandra" is simply just
cheap and has all this curse shit and, without her little buffs, is a fair
simply and easy boss.

Great game, though. Just wish the final boss was more hardcore, instead of
some cheap witch.

I had more trouble with the throne watcher/defender than I did with
Nashandra. Very easy fight if ranged build.

After wasting almost all of my human effigies (I spent like 10 of them), I
finally managed to find a quiet easier way to kill the bitch.
First of all, destroy all the dark orbs that she spells out, and make sure
to wear the Ring of Binding, to reduce your hollow transformation.
Even if you're a melee character, don't waste time locking on her and
blocking/dodging her scythe attacks, which are very powerful. Instead, just
keep your distance from her after breaking the dark orbs and wait for the
laser beams, that are extremely easy to dodge.
Now, pay attention: while she's shooting the laser, run towards her and hit
her 3 or 4 times (if you have stamina for that), wielding your weapon with
both hands.
Keep repeating the process and be patient. You will succeed :)

how do you trigger this boss

Didn't expect to beat Nashandra quite so easily with lightning and magic
(melee/ arrow/ and spells). :/ some other boss are even harder. Well,
except for the constant life drain.

Her being easy makes sense lore-wise.She is just a fragment of Manus' soul
so she has to be much weaker than him.Also, From tends to add weak final
bosses to the souls series.

What if you beat her? Does NG+ start imediately after killing her?

Smelter demon sword, I think you get it from straid by trading the boss

You can also destroy the orbs she summons. Just hit once and the orbs will
disappear. It takes a while for her to summon them again but this will
probably work the best if you summon someone to distract her as you destroy
them. That how I did it. Hope this helps ;)

I just kept on staying away from her until she she would use the straight
beam and run at her then hit her twice and run away
Christian Flores 2014-05-30 03:53:12
Lol I still can't believe I beat her and the Throne guys in my first try

Mason York 2014-05-26 18:59:24

Wow I can't believed I summoned on this boss, all I needed to do was use a
bow and dodge LOL! (too lazy to look up a strategy) whatever, atleast I
killed Ancient Dragon and Vendrick solo. I'll just do this one on NG +

played as a sorc, killed her before she went through the summons.

this is a circle jerk
Kapitein Lulhaas 2014-05-08 09:42:25
I am horrible at dodge rolling but i dont think her side beam hit me even
once.. so yeah..
brian pullups 2014-05-07 09:07:22
Ring of binding makes it so your health doesnt fall beneath 75% from the
curses me think
Filthgrinder Allmighty 2014-05-04 10:42:34
First Try...and dodged the beam easily...dissapointing. Hope it will be
more fun to fight in the new game +.

Who the hell is Nashandra? I mean she cames out of nowhere.
Tobirama Senju 2014-04-27 23:57:27
Melee is practically impossible on her. I'm talking well rounded melee with
little magicall abilities. I am having a lot of trouble doing this with
melee only 
antony richardson 2014-04-26 15:18:22
for a str build this is a nightmare....
Lieven Heirbaut 2014-04-18 19:09:54
Nashandra is a teddy bear... Get her out of the blobs, and go to the right
... she doesn't hit ya, you kill her ...easy ... 
Inkshooter 2014-04-17 06:20:38
Is there any way NOT to get cursed in this fight?
