Elden Ring has some very interesting areas as well as Bosses. But the one that stands out the most is the Volcano Manor at Mt.Gelmir & the family that lives there. They have their own set of Quests & are an optional area in the game. Although going through it can get you an amazing Weapon. The Volcano Manor also houses Rykard, Lord Of Blasphemy Boss. In this guide, I will show you how to beat Rykard, Lord Of Blasphemy Boss in Elden Ring.
How to Beat Rykard, Lord Of Blasphemy in Elden Ring (Cheese Method)
Once you have defeated the God-Devouring Serpent Boss phase in Elden Ring, it will reveal its true identity. The identity is Rykard, Lord Of Blasphemy. You will be put into the cutscene as the transformation happens and Rykard, Lord Of Blasphemy will pull out a Sword. The attack patterns change drastically as the boss will actively try to get close to you. The Cheese Method that you used in the God-Devouring Serpent phase will also work here. Keep in mind that the Lava under him will stagger you and will break the stun-lock. To perform the stun-lock, you will need to trigger the Skill of the Serpent-Hunter Sword. You will get the Sword as you enter the Rykard, Lord Of Blasphemy Boss arena in Elden Ring.
Keep your distance at all times and just perform the Cheese method by spamming the Serpent-Hunter Sword Skill in regular intervals. Have a check on your FP & Stamina as they will drain pretty quickly. Keep a lot of Cerulean Flasks on the ready. You can also use Armor, Talismans, & the Flask of Wondrous Physick mixed with Cerulean Hidden Tear to manage the consumption of your FP. If done correctly, you won’t need to dodge any attacks as the Boss is in a stun lock.
Repeat this till you have defeated the Boss. After you defeat him, you will get his Rykard’s Great Rune & Remembrance of the Blasphemous. This was all about beating Rykard, Lord Of Blasphemy in Elden Ring. Hopefully, this guide has helped you. You can also check out our guide on How to Beat the God-Devouring Serpent in Elden Ring.
