vs. Alfred Boss Fight Tips
Alfred's Attacks Are Mostly Throwables
Most of Alfred's attacks are throwables, from Curse, Poison and elemental damage. It's important to keep moving around to avoid getting him.
Dodge Poison Vials To Avoid Damage Over Time
When Alfred throws a small green bomb, you'll notice that it'll infect the ground with green sludge. If you step on this, you'll get poisoned so be mobile and dodge away.
Jump Over Him When He Casts Ice Vials
When you're close, he will throw an ice spell on the ground, and then run towards the opposite direction. Jump over him and he will be vulnerable as he runs.
Jump To Also Avoid Fire Vials
Alfred will also toss fire spells onto the ground so you won't get near him. When he does this, you can jump over him to get to his other side, leaving him open for attack.
Dodge Or Jump To Avoid Petrification
Alfred also throws petrify vials onto the ground that can turn you into stone. Watch out for these and avoid them properly as being petrified can leave you incredibly vulnerable.
Keep Running When He Summons Curse Projectile
When Alfred summons a glowing pink ring, he'll throw a Curse projectile towards you. This homes on your location so don't stand still and move away to avoid getting Cursed.
Move Behind Him When Casting Ice Pillars
Alfred will occasionally summon ice pillars that will fall on top of you. Getting hit will really hurt you so jump behind Alfred while he's summoning to land some hits while he's stationary.
Drinks Potions To Power Up
When Alfred stops to drink a potion, he'll start glowing red. He'll be boosted when he does this, allowing him to cast more spells and dash around the tower faster.
Drinking Fire Potion Surrounds Him In Flames
When Alfred drinks another potion and you notice flames around him, this means it's not safe to get too close. The flames will damage your HP if you get too near Alfred.
Casts Slow Bubbles In The Field
When he casts a large blue ball at the center of the area, prepare to move around since certain areas will cause you to slow down your movement.
Use Ranged Weapons To Reach Alfred
During this phase, Alfred will be hard to reach. Switch to ranged weapons such as the Flying Edge & guns to still damage him even if you're far away.
