Players have to sacrifice Deer trophies in order to summon this enemy. You can easily hunt some Deer with the help of a bow if you have it already. It will need some Wood and Leather. But if you don’t then there is another way to kill Deer. You must use Sneak using the left control along with a Knife or any other weapon to slay Deer. Approach Deer from behind and kill them immediately with one hit. Remember that if they spot you, they can escape pretty quickly. Even if you kill one, the other Deer near it will run off. But you can follow the escaped Deer and do the same thing to hunt it too.

The Mystical Alter is near the red stone that you have interacted with and you will see its location on the map after interaction. After your offering, the first boss will appear with a bang and then your task will be to beat him.
