Combat Information

  • When you enter the room, the boar will be in the other end and most likely charge you. Given the narrow space in boss rooms in Chalice Dungeons, it is advisable that you dodge at the last moment and then backstep a couple of more times to avoid further attack.
  • The best approach is to attack from the side and spot a backstab/visceral opportunity.
  • One can infinitely loop a visceral attack chain if you have a fast enough weapon, the boar will not recover fast enough to avoid a follow up strong attack. This method makes the boar extremely easy to beat regardless of it's health or damage, as it is unable to move so long as your timing is relatively quick.
  • The boar can be effectively stunned by heavy attacks.
  • The boss boar may charge again after losing 50% health, even if you are right in front of him.
  • The boss boar may go nuts and kick/swipe his head in all directions.
  • Takes extra damage from righteous (not serrated) and is most vulnerable to Blunt.




Attacks

Attack Name
Attack Description & Counter
Charge
Charges at the player if he's far away.
Headswipe
Swipes his head from to one side, then the other.

Stands on two legs and drops down onto the player. Right side of it then its left. Can also swipe once to its left.

Strategies

The boar can be backstabbed easily with Burial Blade charge attack. Once connected, visceral attack and steps back. You can then stagger it again when it's doing butt smash thanks to your scythe's long reach. Rinse and repeat and it should be dead.

      Super easy kill13 Jul 2016 04:57  

      I just ran to the back, towards the pit. When he charged, I rolled out of the way, and he fell down. I didn't see the need to actually fight the ***** thing.

        It seems to have the same moves as the smaller(relative) pigs. It'a charge can break the pillars in the room, but it can be staggered and visceral attacked just like a regular pig. When you are behind it you can just stun lock it. Charge R2 when behind it, and then visceral. You should be able to start charging again after you finish and still hit it. Rinse, repeat. <br/> <br/>Moves i've seen. <br/> <br/>Long distance charge, belly flop, head flail. I imagine it has a poison breath attack too.
