Elden Ring has a wide range of Enemies from the smallest Rats to the largest Giants. Among those enemies are NPC Invaders. Invaders can be either an NPC or a player that enters a different player’s world and attack them. This part will come in handy as you, the player, must invade an NPC’s world. During the Volcano Manor quest, you will have to invade an NPC known as Juno Hoslow. He is a humanoid NPC and is very hostile, and strong too. In this, guide, I will show you how you can beat Juno Hoslow in Elden Ring.
How to Beat Juno Hoslow in Elden Ring
You will encounter Juno Hoslow in the Volcano Manor Questline, given by Lady Tanith in Elden Ring. In the Questline, you are asked to invade 3 NPCs of which the third one is Juno Hoslow. You will find him in the Mountaintops of the Giants region near the Shack of the Lofty. Juno Hoslow uses dual-wielded Hoslow’s Petal Whip as his primary weapon. It is a strong Whip that can dish out Bleed damage. Getting hit by it a few times can be fatal. As such, beating as quickly as possible or dodging the attacks is your best strategy.
There is a Cheese method in beating Juno Hoslow in Elden Ring. All you have to do is go to the wall on your right as you spawn in. Once you are at the wall, climb it till get to a higher elevation. At this point, Juno Hoslow won’t be able to attack you and can beat him by shooting Arrows or using Spells or Incantations. This is viable if you can do tons of damage as this method will take a long time. Here is what you can do instead. As you spawn into Juno Hoslow’s world, run behind him as quickly as you can. Once you are perfectly behind him, perform a Light Attack with your Weapon. The Weapon of choice should be one of the following ones.
- Colossal Weapons
- Great Curved Swords
- Great Thrusting Swords
- Great Spears
When you attack from his behind, the attack will become a backstab breaking his poise. From this point keep attacking him till you defeat him. If done correctly, he won’t be able to recover from the stagger. To help you even further, I suggest you use a Lightning Grease. You can craft it with a Root Resin & Fulgurbloom if you have the Ancient Dragon Apostle’s Cookbook . Here is how you can get the Cookbook.
Once you defeat him, you will get 158 Runes, Furlcalling Finger Remedy, Hoslow’s Armor, Hoslow’s Gauntlets, Hoslow’s Greaves, Hoslow’s Helm, Hoslow’s Petal Whip, & a Rune Arc. This was all about beating Juno Hoslow in Elden Ring. Hopefully, this guide has helped you. You can also check out our guides like How To Get The Blasphemous Blade in Elden Ring
