In the Silk Cradle zone, the first boss is Focalor, resembling insect-like regular enemies. Stay in the open to avoid cornering, a tactic Focalor uses for more dangerous attacks. His basic tackle attack is followed by devastating moves, including an AOE shockwave and projectile slam. Focalor summons small enemies, but it’s advised to focus on dodging and maintaining distance.

The fight is relatively simple; observe the boss’s movements and avoid rushing in. Dodge through projectiles and capitalize on openings to deal damage, especially effective with a dagger for its speed.

In the Cult of the Lamb Silk Cradle, Vephar, a giant centipede-like boss, focuses on summoning smaller enemies and launching poison projectiles. While he avoids direct confrontation, players should swiftly eliminate the summoned foes, using a strong dagger if available.

  • Dodge the poison projectiles by observing the reticle and seize opportunities to attack when the boss is vulnerable.
  • Although Vephar can sprout spikes for protection, he is considered the weakest among the Silk Cradle bosses.
  • Following Vephar, players face Hauras, a challenging boss due to his relentless projectile attacks.
  • Hauras exhibits a variety of projectile patterns, ranging from basic shots to circular spreading and rapid turret-like attacks.
  • Additionally, he can unleash poison projectiles that leave temporary trails.
  • To successfully confront Hauras, players must maintain a distance, dodge his attacks, and strategically strike during vulnerable moments. 

Utilize corners to dodge projectile attacks and be cautious of his charging headbutt attack. The key is to dodge, shoot Curses during his charge-up, and then retreat to safety. Patience and focus are crucial for overcoming Hauras.

The gross and cool design of Shamura

Shamura serves as the final boss, leading the Bishops of the Old Faith. He presents a formidable challenge, testing players’ acquired skills and knowledge. Shamura possesses a diverse moveset, including explosive projectiles with an indicator, a shockwave attack upon landing from a jump, and aggressive close and mid-range attacks. As the battle progresses, his attacks become more aggressive and unpredictable.

  • During the fight, Shamura’s explosive projectiles feature a reticle indicator; you should dodge with a wider range due to the area of effect.
  • As his health depletes, he enters a second phase, intensifying attacks.
  • In this phase, his jump attack shoots projectiles alongside the shockwave.
  • Dodging projectiles remains the same, finding gaps in a corner, but extreme melee attacks require constant dodging and counterattacking.

Maintain a pattern of going in, hitting Shamura, dodging, and repeating until the boss is defeated. Patience and focus are crucial throughout this challenging boss fight. Upon Shamura’s defeat, the Bishops of the Old Faith are vanquished, marking the completion of the game’s main goal. Players may consider additional playthroughs to explore alternative endings.
