You can cheese Rennala by staggering and spamming attacks on her. Below are the exact steps as to how you can cheese both of her phases.

Phase 1

The cheese for Phase 1 is really simple and something that you would do when fighting her regularly.

  1. Eliminate her followers with yellow glowing shields on their heads. Do this quickly as the longer the fight goes the more items they and Rennala will throw at you.
  2. Once the three are eliminated Rennala will lose her defense and come down.
  3. While she is down she will be completely vulnerable, use your highest damaging weapon or spell to slay her. If you are fast and strong enough, you can do it in one go.
  4. Else you can finish her phase 1 in two or at most three times by repeating the above steps of killing her minions and bringing her down.

Once you deplete her first health bar completely you will see a cutscene play. This is your cue for the beginning of the second phase.


Phase 2

This is slightly more tedious than the first phase. Here Rennala will be more aggressive and cast spells at you. In order to cheese her, you should use Archer Ashes of war. You can summon them during the first phase or whenever you get a chance in this phase. Archers will interrupt her from completing her spells. Alternatively, if you don’t have these ashes of war then you can do it without them as well. Just run up close to her and start hitting to interrupt her. Keep spamming your attacks and dodge any spell that she uses by running. One thing to remember is sometimes she casts a summon on the ground that allows her to use any summon ashes of war. While the summon is active keep running to dodge it and repeat the attack once they are gone.
