Ulcerated Tree Spirit Should Be Fought After You Get Stronger

Those who took the Stonesword Key from the start can challenge the Ulcerated Tree Spirit right away, although you must understand that this can be quite difficult unless you are experience in the Souls series. Its fierce and instant-kill attacks are too difficult for early game, so you should challenge them only after you have become stronger.

Prepare A Shield With 100% Physical Negation

d run

The Ulcerated Tree Spirit will mainly do physical damage for the fight until its HP falls to 60%. If you have a shield with 100% physical resistance, you can protect your HP at the expense of stamina. This makes it really effective to guard against its powerful attacks. You can pick up physical negation shields in various locations, so try to get one if you haven't yet.

Learn To Avoid Instant Kill Attack

▲Whenever it begins to shout, it will unleash an instant-kill attack.

Whenever the Ulcerated Tree Spirit screams, it will unleash its instant-kill attack and run towards you to bite you. The attack is too powerful that it cannot be prevented by guarding. You will have to avoid it by dodging, otherwise, you will have to start over. Make sure to learn the right timing for this attack.
