Brood Mother Strategies
The Brood Mother is an immobile boss that uses its elongated arms to attack and spawns Maggots to attack Leila. For this battle, you'll be tested with your timing and patience when it comes to dodging. Before fighting this boss, you'll want to purchase the Vigilant's Long Bow which you can purchase from Zachary at the Smithy in Maye Town; stock up with Fire Arrows, Dynamites, and/or Molotovs since it is weak to fire. Usually, when the battle starts, it will move its right arm for a two-hit combo. It has a two-second delay before it tries to grab you and then follows-up by slamming its hand on the ground. Its force of slamming its hand on the ground will also cause debris to fall from above, usually, the debris will fall down from your last position.
Sometimes, it will let out a screech that causes multiple debris to fall from the ground and follows-up with slamming its hand on the ground. So when it screams, be ready to look above to watch out for the debris and be ready to dodge for its hand. What's recommended for this is to position yourself at the far left-hand side of the screen, wait for the debris to fall, dodge towards the boss, and then counterattack with a few hits while you're near its stomach.
Whenever you try to dodge its attacks, you want to try to position yourself or dodge towards it so that you can land a couple of attacks to its stomach. If you're position somewhere in the middle, try to equip a Molotov or Dynamite to throw it at the boss. Molotov works best since the flames damages over time. Since you have a bow, you also have the advantage of attacking it from afar if ever you're positioned at the other end of the screen, just make sure to equip the bow and use swap to Fire Arrows. Time your dodges, be patient, ,always watch out for the debris when it screams and slams its hand on the ground, and attack when there's an opportunity to do so- don't forget to speak to the spirit of Bruna to obtain the Cemetery Key.
Attacks & CountersYou'll find a list of its attacks to better understand on how to counter them:
- Two-hit Combo: Wait for about two seconds before it swings its right arm before dodging, and then be ready to dodge another second attack when it slams its hand on the ground. Watch out for the debris that falls from above after the monster slams its hand on the ground.
- Sweeping Arm: One tricky attack is when it swings its left arm at you and then follows-up with another attack by slamming its hand on the ground. Again, when it slams its hand, debris will fall from the ground. All you can do is to time your dodge roll and try to dodge towards it so you can land a few hits to its stomach.
- Debris from above: The monster will scream that causes multiple rocks to fall from above and then it follows-up by quickly slamming its hand on Leila. Try to position yourself at the far left-hand side of the screen, wait for the debris to fall, dodge towards the boss, and then counterattack with a few hits while you're near its stomach.
- Maggots: When it spawns three eggs of Maggots, quickly get rid of it by attacking it. Two hits with the Iron Halberd that you previously got from Captain Carl will do. Don't wait for it to hatch from its egg.
