Dark Souls II Boss Guide: Nashandra
The lovely lady looks a lot like Nito from Dark Souls and loves her curses. At first this woman wrecked me because I didn’t really get what was going on. She summons these orbs that you’ll want to attack, that’s the main trick. It’s going to feel like you aren’t hitting them but one attack will do it. If she ever summons those, end them. They will curse you over and over again, you don’t need that. When you attack her, wait for her to swing her scythe at you. If you can roll behind her, do so, she’ll only swing once. If you’re still in her arc, she’ll swing three times. Her attack swing is slow and very dodge-able. The only other attack you need to watch out for is a nova attack. She’ll charge up purple before she does it.
