Combat Information

  • It is suggested not to lock onto this boss as the camera can be wild.
  • It is recommended to wear Bolt resistant armor like Henryk's Set.
  • As soon as you enter the boss room, the boss has a high chance of doing a jumping attack. The hit box for this attack can be silly sometimes and with a cursed modifier this might one-shot you. Hug the fog gate and if he jumps it should not reach you. Note that the boss room structure can vary in chalice dungeons and in some of those staying by the gate might not be safe for the jump attack.
  • Pungent Blood Cocktail  is effective against this boss.

 

Attack Name Attack Description & Counter (from Paarl's page)
Claw Swipes Boss swipes his claws up to three times in succession. This attack does moderate damage but is fast. When his power is fully charged, it also unleashes 3 balls of electricity that travel in a straight line.
Leap Swipe Boss can leap toward a distant hunter as he swipes at them. His leap covers a lot of distance, so always try to dodge it.
Slam Boss slams his claw and then emits a blast. He can use this attack in combination with his swipe attacks.
Electric Nova After channeling for a few seconds, boss unleashes a nova around him that does high damage. If the hunter manages to stagger him during the channel, the boss will fall down and become completely vulnerable for a few seconds. This will also cause his attacks to be no longer infused with electricity until he recharges (which he tends to do as soon as possible).
Electric Breath After a short channel, boss damages everything near his head.If not in the vicinity of his head, the hunter can safely go in for a few hits. Pay attention to which part of his body is glowing to tell whether he is doing a nova or a breath. If his chest glows, he is preparing for a nova; if his head glows, he is about to breathe.

 

Strategy (Baiting and focusing on limbs):


In this guide, you will need to keep facing the boss and bait his attacks. If you stay in front of him, the boss will most likely attack with horizontal swipes. He may attack with one horizontal swipe, two of them, or two of them followed by a forward hand stomp. You need to dodge under the first swipe and the rest of the combo will not matter to you. Go under him in order to attack.

This guide suggests focusing on the limbs of the boss. After baiting and dodging under the boss, attack the closest limb. Attacking the limbs sufficiently will cause the boss to fall down and lose his charge. Whether or not the same leg can cause the boss to fall down has not been tested in this guide. The video accompanied with this guide shows the effectiveness of focusing on the limbs.

After attacking the limbs, depending on your position, the boss will most likely do one of the following:

  • Dodge sideways and attack with a quick swipe. This dodge can be fast and with the camera locked on the camera will go crazy. Without the camera locked on, you will lose sight of him. To dodge his swipe attack, simply roll opposite of where you saw the boss dodge to.
  • The boss will curl up a little and start charging. Bright light will be seen from the body of the boss. This AOE will hit hard. This guide is centred on dodging through the AOE to attack the boss some more. Doing this can be tricky though. In order to dodge through this AOE, wait until the moment the boss starts raising its head up and dodge at that time. It is recommended to dodge towards the head as I found that to be easier. Watching the accompanying video to this guide should help in having a rough idea of when to dodge this AOE attack.

After doing enough damage (about one-third of its health), the boss will back away in order to charge up his body, causing him to have double charge. In double charge mode, the boss will have increased damage and extra effects to some of his attacks. The swipes will cause trails of electricity to follow and can be tricky to dodge sometimes. The AOE attack will do more damage and might one-shot you if you're on the cursed modifier. The strategy remains the same. Bait his swipes, go under the boss to attack, dodge through the AOE and repeat.

If you've focused well on the limbs. You will cause the boss to fall more than once and will have enough time to damage him. After this, the boss will attempt to dodge sideways and quick attack you at least once before trying to gain some distance to charge up again. While the boss is charging up, you can at least attack the limbs once per charge.

      You can roll through his AoE (roll just before the noise) but it's dicey. Best way is to keep him de-electrified so he can't use it. Lock onto his head, quickstep through his swipe and get under his chin. Transformed cane is probably best. Summon just makes it more chaotic and prolongs the fight IMO.

      When he's in 2nd stage and beyond the AoE can one-shot. You have to keep the pressure on and rush him every time he's backing away to reboot his bolt. Learning to keep him down by sequentially attacking limbs is best, however I just whaled on his head while he's distracted recharging his battery. He's weaker without the forcefield.

        1. Put fire on your weapon
        2. DPS race the legs
        3. Heal through his aoe
        4. hopefully he dies

        Im 90% memeing, but 20k health is a lot to go through, camera is awful and the aoe forces a slow fight - IMO it's honestly the best way to just spam attacks and heal like a pleb

          ...just don't lock on...

          All things aside, though, playing locked off helps a **** ton, even outside of bossfights. Learning to freeaim melee attacks can reward you with pristine spacing.

            The best way to manage the ****ass camera in this fight is to make sure you’re locked on to his HEAD. If you lock on to the body, the camera is a mess. The head isn’t perfect but it’s manageable and more reliable.

            Dodge into the swipes and hit him with a long range swipe attack. Transformed saw spear R1 works well and the Kos parasite was fairly reliable. LHB L2 would conceivably hit the body too. Hit him once or twice and you should be able to quickstep back pretty quickly before he counters or charges the AOE. Make sure to stay a little closer to him for the second phase or the lightning effects will get ya. His swipes get a bit farther and more aggressive so you can usually dodge into them easier if you’re timing it right. Once you get into a rhythm, you can focus on managing your stamina bar and distance.

              I think if timed perfectly you can dodge inside the electric AOE attack and not take damage. I swear I did it by accident a few times.

                Just too much health. This fight is pretty ****ing hard for me tbh but mostly because his insane health pool.

                  What is this camera holy ****. Why can’t we just lock onto the legs. I can’t dodge this stupid thing because I can’t ****ing see

                    This is by far the worst boss in bloodborne. The camera, the one-shot aoe attacks that take up half the arena, the terrible hitboxes on the arm swipes, the ridiculously high health pool and the fact that it's literally just paarl again. Amygdala in the cursed chalice would have been the worst if there wasn't a cheese strategy. There's no cheese for this ****er, you just have to smash your balls repeatedly with a hammer for ten minutes, no way around it.

                      I mean the whole fight feels like trying to put a bra on an enraged bull. It can be fun at times, depending on your build, but it can also be extremely annoying.

                        This dude had me lose my **** during my first playthrough. The second time around, which was yesterday, I stuck to a strategy: always dodge under him through his claw swipes, bash his legs once or twice and get out, no exceptions, repeat. Also figured out how to dodge the AOE blast with some regularity. Turned a fight I hated into a super rewarding victory after a long, intense grinding fight. Gotta love Fromsoft games.

                          On a 99 arcane build, use the blood cocktails. 1 should allow you to hit with 2 ACB blasts. Target the body and youre able to take him down before going through 20 (+blood bullets each shot) quicksilver bullets

                            Do not lock on. Bait the horizontal swipe attack. Roll under the 1st swing (may be 1-3). Stay under the boss for 2 swings on the back leg. Vertical swinging weapons can damage chest and head. Roll behind and away from the boss. Repeat. Have enough dps to stunkock/visceral this boss and it’s a cake walk. Be on the aggressive between boss attacks. Do not try to fight ranged or you will run out of stamina.

                              Not that it'll make it a cakewalk or anything, but one good trick I've learned while running an Arcane build is to chase it down when it's trying to recharge its static (it'll repeatedly try to back away from you, about half the length of the arena), get underneath it, then use Call Beyond. The wide spread does a significant chunk of damage, and potentially knocks out its electricity a second time, possibly even opening it for a visceral, too. You can also do this when it ups its charge at about 70% health and again at roughly 40%.

                              The Madaras Whistle is pretty nice, too, but don't forget to dodge out of its jaws. It's not nearly as reliable, either, but it does consume fewer bullets per use.

                              Believe me, I've died enough times to practice all kinds of dumb tricks.

                                Got enough dps to knock the electricity off in one stamina bar?
                                Yes? You win
                                No? You lose

                                      Far too quick for its size, and far too much health for its speed. Should have been better balanced... Basically forcing you to play unlocked and then having him jumping around constantly off screen is irredeemable garbage... Horribly designed boss. Dark Souls didn't have trash like this, and with any luck neither will Elden Ring.

                                        What a horrible boss. You can't even hit him half the time because he's freaking massive and constantly prancing around.

                                          Get under him and hit him with the threaded cane in whip mode. Then back away while blocking with the loch shield. It’s almost an unfair combo against this guy as the shield absorbs almost all damage. Just watch your stamina.

                                            Golden Ardeo, Henryk Set and bolt damage reduction (and visceral attack damage if needed) runes and you can survive he's AOE in the second phase with 30 vitality(probably a little less). With that being do the limb techinque and when he falls, aim for his head. While he's electric aura is off, damaging his head will give a visceral attack opportunity. If you are having problems in second phase throw blood cocktails and spam A Call From Beyond. Remember to use blood bullets if you're short. Happy hunting

                                              This boss isn't hard at all. The only reason anyone has ANY difficulty with him is because he's big enough to take up your entire screen when you dodge between his legs, meaning you can't even see if your hitting him. And that's just a*****ty boss mechanic.

                                                        If you are running an arcane build, A Call Beyond and fire gems are your best friends when fighting the Darkbeast. If you aren’t, learn how to dodge underneath his attacks and unlock the camera at the same time. If he continues to attack at the ground this will give you ample time to score plenty of hits. Most times, however, he will jump out and you may only get one hit. Focus on one limb (preferably the hind ones) and break it. After breaking 3 you should be in control of the fight with Darkbeast Loran low on health. Good luck, fellow hunters.

                                                          I find that the best way to deal with this guy is to have a holy moonlight sword and focus on his legs. With enough hits, he will fall down. Also, if you can, try t I-frame through the AOEs.

                                                                      Keep a lock on his head. Try to get one strike up front and dodge slightly to the forward left while he does a swipe (works for both stages as his head shifts toward his attacking arm), then try to connect two more attacks while under his head before he leaps away. Also try and be aggressive when he runs, running towards him but waiting for him to attack first. It's best to try and dodge through his charged explosions, and with a little practice this is very possible. Just be sure to unlock the camera before you dodge it.

                                                                      You will have to run away at times, and be sure to be careful when doing so. The set of armor I wore mitigated the bolt damage by about 60 or 70% more (than the Tomb Prospector Hood, Executioner Robes, Gascoigne's Gloves, and Black Church Trousers). Also the bolts from his claw swipes will do basically nothing as they deal only minor bolt damage. Maybe 30 HP at closest range to the claws but they will stagger you. The most damage you can receive is if you're caught in his explosion or the bolts caused by his second stage slam combo.

                                                                      Best runes to use are Clockwise Metamorphosis, Communion, Dissipating Lake (for pure bolt defense though may substitute for Blood Rapture if going for viscerally when it's downed), and Radiance so you can take more of a beating before having to heal.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        Contrary to other,DON'T go under his body since he will jump away or charge up his AoE, fight him HEAD ON
                                                                        I kept my camera locked on his head so my axe will automatically aim itself to the head (your target is the head after all)
                                                                        Now,you have to time your spinning attack since he can't stagger you during the spin (except heavy attacks like slam)
                                                                        Remember to let your stamina recharge after charging since you need it to dodge his swipe.
                                                                        Instead of chasing him,let him approach toward you because,he will jump like crazy in arena if you chase it
                                                                        Some good moment to land hit: when he walks toward you,after his AoE attack (or when he entered phase 2 or 3)

                                                                        On second phase,he got more tricky since camerabeast will run toward you+his swipe will shoot electric ball.
                                                                        Always keep your health above 50% because he become really *****ing agressive
                                                                        Don't forget to retreat for a while,healing and reapplying Empty shell on your weapon
                                                                        Watch out for the 3 electric slam attack since it will go through your poise and will kill you easily
                                                                        Keep repeating this,and eventually you killed him at last.

                                                                        I hope this strategy helps
                                                                        And for people that play with cursed modifier,i wish you luck (though i haven't tested this strategy on cursed dungeon).

                                                                          Luckily, with only one other person, this guy went down faster than you can say '*****'.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                While I can take down Paarl with hardly any trouble, even on NG+7, the Loran Darkbeast just wrecks my***** every time. I think I finally realized why: in the actual fight against Darkbeast Paarl, the camera is programmed to zoom in and out according to Paarl's attack patterns, whereas in the fight against the Loran Darkbeast, it stays fixed throughout the entirety of the battle for some dumbass reason. The camera really IS the boss fight.

                                                                                I feel like it's nearly impossible to land any hits on the Darkbeasts because of how fast they are, and how high off the ground they keep their torso. AND JFC WHAT IS WITH THAT AOE ATTACK. They spam it practically the moment you finally get under their belly, leaving you no choice but to take the hit. If you're lucky, it will only take about 3/4 health. Other times, it's a definite one-shot attack. I'm not sure if the damage output varies, or if the player's position affects the damage multiplier (does being closer to its torso do more damage?), or maybe it all relies on whether the Darkbeast is "fully charged" or not. Cursed offering lyfe, amiright? And then sometimes they just repeatedly roll the hell over and let you whale on them, as if the game is just GIVING you the victory.

                                                                                I once lost 3,000,000 echoes to this bastard, all because of that lunging attack it uses the moment you enter the arena. The salt continues to sting....

                                                                                • Anonymous

Which is unfortunate, since those are the two most dangerous parts of the fight. Who thought it was a good idea to put this thing in a room with water physics and swirling sand animations?

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    Still thanks to my NPC Tank he was first try.
                                                                                    Rolled underhim and hacked L2 with LHS.

                                                                                    BTW having 20% and 30% Moon Runes are incredible while farming in Chalices on NG XD Yep still in Normal Game.

                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                        But yet again from another player I give this boss the most poorly designed encounter in such an amazing game.

                                                                                        Seriously though which designer's child made this boss because it's a piece of ***** that just screams "I'm not finished being made yet".

                                                                                        I used to hate this boss because of the stupid camera but now I really hate because of the actual model of it.

                                                                                        Can anybody else name a boss in this entire game whose model causes your character to jump into the air resulting in a plunging attack? I can't and I doubt there is.

                                                                                        But in all seriousness if you use the beast Hunter saif for this fight your character will spazz out when he spins around and you will do a plunging attack that won't hit anything and you get to admire this boss nice and close before he smacks you.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

I would highly recommend it as I could not even touch him normally with a melee weapon.

My main weapon is blades of mercy but because of the range and way he moves its hard to tag him with it, I really dont know if I can do this, anyone else had success at a level similar to mine?

I am not so sure myself. I kinda entered a bloodlust trance. Only know that I focused on the head and front legs, since if you miss (and you miss the limbs a lot because of bad hitbox and camera, hate it!!) The front lombs you hit the head/chest. From time to time I hit one rear leg. All of the sudden I get this weird instinct to shoot his back leg. I sniped the leg unlocked - and it worked! Broke his leg (fluke)! Then moved in smashed his front.. couldn't truly chain-stagger, maybe because of dps. Eventually he started retreating for recharge. I charged up Ludwig R2 and followup R2, interrupted his recharge a few times. Eventually he recovered but during his stagger, knockdown and recharge he seem to take extra damage. I fought with Camera Auto Fix at OFF. Don't know if it helped. personally I hated this fight more than anything. Missing his tiny hitbox and losing sight of him was frustrating... I never want to do this again, lol, and I don't know if I can recreate this.. But I kicked his ass like a true hunter and didn't even over used my resources. Praise the sunnnnnnn! GL guys!

                                                                                                                          Cane-whip is serrated which is great against beasts, and it also has great reach and decent speed. Dodge past his attacks so that you're standing under him, then just let loose with R1 attacks with the Cane-whip until he falls on his face, then visceral his ass. If at any point he attempts to do his electric nova attack when you are under him, raise your shield, this will absorb most of the damage making you only take about as much damage as a blood vial will heal (still quite a bit, but you won't die....hopefully) This strategy is still viable without the Loch Shield, but significantly harder, seeing as an Electric Nova from that close can instakill a 50 vitality character.
