How to beat Crystal Sage

Name: Crystal Sage
Location: Road of Sacrifices
Rewards: Soul of a Crystal Sage, 8000 souls

The Crystal Sage does exclusively magic attacks, shooting three types of projectiles at you. You should rush at him and start hitting like crazy. He hasn’t got any armor and can’t take much of a beating. When he’s had enough, he’ll teleport away.

Try to destroy as many of these as you can while getting to him – they’ll turn into enemies after a while. You don’t need to hit them – walking over them is enough to break them. When they do manage to turn into enemies, you should ignore them and keep hitting the boss.

If there happens to be too much of them, you can use Throwing Knives to kill them. One shot with any weapon will do, including the paltry knives.

It would be great if you could use a shield with high magic defense. Dodging all of the Sage’s attacks might prove difficult, so a good shield would mean a lot. Armor that protects against magic damage would also be a good idea. Finally, use the structures in the arena to hide from the projectiles. If you’re using melee weapons, don’t forget to switch to two hands as you approach him, for maximum damage.
