Yharnam, Phtumerian Queen




Locations




Combat Information

  • All her blood attacks cause rapid poison to build up, so bring Antidotes.
  • Only the end of the second "Cry" of the three, will root you if close in melee range. When you hear the second cry jump back, then come back in for a strike.
  • Usually you can only get 1-2 hits on her, then you have to distance yourself, otherwise you get chained down
  • Sometimes the baby doesn't cry right when you start attacking her. Listen carefully and especially in the first phase you can just spam R1 despite your stamina and interrupt her slowly starting attacks until after a while baby forces you to stop. It is possible to R1 spam the whole first phase if the baby stays silent.
  • The first phase you can just dodge through the blood rain she shoots from her wrist, to get your hits in (don't do that once phase 2 starts, you'll get hit)
  • Phase 2 starts at around 70-75% she will break her handcuffs and will start using her knife in melee (perfect for riposting, makes the fight a whole lot faster)
  • As for riposting, just get close in shortly, backstep and interrupt her from a safer distance, otherwise you'll get chained and can't get your Visceral Attack in.
  • At some point she will disappear and summon clones, just hit/shoot them once, and they will disappear (clones only shoot one blood bullet from distance).
  • At around 50% she will use a new ranged skill, which involves her cutting her wrist and summon blood knives that attack you from the ground, just sidestep the ground knives; there will be 5 fast ones (just sprint around the arena) and a 6th one that will be delayed
  • Poison Knives work great. 4 will be enough to start the slow poison. It's recommended to wait for the more difficult half of the fight (You can't kill her with 20 Poison Knives alone, but having it chip away in the background makes the fight significantly shorter).
  • You can attack her safely with the transformed Threaded Cane without causing the baby to cry. This makes the fight go much faster if you've already invested in upgrading one. Since she flinches on hits in her first phase, you can effectively stunlock her to 70% as well as deal significant amounts of damage to her in her phase 2 when she's simply walking around.
  • Alternately, go for hit and run tactic with Burial Blade dash R1 in its scythe form and immediately steps backward.
  • Throwing any type of knife at her places her in some sort of immobile state, and interrupts many of her attacks. This works well in her third stage. You can use this opportunity to heal yourself, land a couple hits, or force her melee attacks to set up a Visceral Attack.
  • Using Holy Moonlight Sword L2 attack, you can keep knocking her down essentially avoiding getting hit. Be careful as you can clip her into the center column and be unable to hit her (Just pushed her into a wall and clipped her through the floor; she died seconds later (half health to instant kill)).



Attack Name
Attack Description & Counter
Blood Missile (1 or 3 projectiles)
Fast long range shot fired in a series of 1-3. In the beginning of the fight only one missile but later 3 missiles together. The clones shoot always single projectiles which is a good way of identifieng them. Dodge left or right.
Blood Fountain
Launches a slow rain of blood from her wrists. In the first stage of the fight can be dodged under the rain by quickstepping right towards her but later rain becomes too heavy.
Blood Blast
Heavy close range attack in the first phase of the fight. Lifts her hands up and launches an AoE blast. Dodge straight away from her. Usually one quickstep and some walking is enough so that after blast player can quickstep back to her and attack.
Telekinesis Attack
Bows slightly forward and the ground around her start to glow blue light. Act fast! Quickstep away from the glow or run towards the Queen and attack her. Area of the spell has visual borders. If you do not dodge or interrupt the attack you will get thrown around in the air and slammed to ground taking massive amount of damage.
Single Blood Spears from the floor
Stabs her hand with her sword causing a blood spear arise from the floor right under you. She can do one after another up to 3-4 times. Timing to dodge is as soon as she stabs herself. Not earlier.
Walls of Blood Spears
Stabs her hand and a line of spears arise from the floor. She can do another as soon as one line finishes up to 3-4 times. Excellent opportunity to quickstep behind her and do a charge attack to get a backstab chance.
Sword Rush
Takes a fast and far reaching jump towards you and slashes with her sword. Easily dodged.
Blood Storm
After buffing her sword pushes it to the ground and pillars of blood erupts near her much like the fire pillars in Fire Storm magic in Dark Souls. Don't try anything, just dodge away from her.
Slashing with her sword
Swings her sword (buffed or not) at you and tries to stab too if you get in range. Baiting an melee attack, dodging away and taking a rather easy countershot from the follow ups to stagger her is a solid strategy and visceral attacks makes this fight too much easier.

Notes & Trivia

  • She is the only boss in the game with a gold trophy for defeating her.
  • She drops the Yharnam Stone, but only in Ihyll encounter, as she doesn't drop anything in Mergo's Loft.
