Successor of the Throat Strategies 

Strategy Writeup

Two-Handed Sword

For this fight I used the Zweihander and the Atlas Blood Code. The strategy is to say close to her, block her attacks and then counter in the small windows that are available. She usually does a twirl, a two-hit swipe and a forward facing ground smash. All of these attacks are blockable in phase 1, so just manage your Stamina and attack between them if possible, using your Gifts as often as you can.

In phase two you'll need to dodge her tornadoes. These are hard to see, but you can spam dodge if you aren't sure where they are and you'll usually be ok. She does a series of attacks after this where she casts ground AoEs beneath you so you'll need to play defensively here, and you cannot block them, so you must dodge.

Once she's finished keep repeating the strategy from phase 1, just look out for her new ground AoE attacks that you cannot block.

Her attacks hit with the Leak Status meaning your Ichor will bleed away, so always try to use your Gifts when they are available because they may not be for long.

If you defeat the boss you will see the writing "Greater Lost Dispersed" upon the screen.

Attacks & Counters

Attack Counter
Phase 1
Two Hit Swipe: She will attack one time from each side Block the attacks and strike back.
Whirlwind attack: She will start spinning dealing damage in an AoE around her. You can either dodge or jump backwards two times.
Double Strike From Above: She will use both arms to perform a two hit combo from above Block her attack and then counter attack.
Phase 2
Tornado Attack: When the phase begins she will cast tornadoes all over the battlefield. Run to a free location and wait for the attack to finish.
Ground Strike: She will send an attack from below the ground that you cannot block. Dodge to any direction when you see the attack coming.

      Stay close to her. Seriously. The first time I fought her, I stayed far back, trying to dodge attacks and be safe. I got obliterated. 2nd attempt, I just stayed right on her, blocking when she began to attack and boom, done. The difference was night and day. It is SOOO much easier if you stay right on her. Use something with high stagger potential and that does huge damage. I used an Obliterator Axe +8 (IMO, one of, if not the, best weapon in the game), GXH Assault +6 with Atlas Blood Code and the passive Ice Buff gift. Because I stayed right on her, I got hit way less, which means not getting nailed with leak as much and being able to use gifts more.Be very aggressive and try to stagger her as much as you can, but also don't be reckless. You need to be blocking much of the time as well.

        Pretty tricky boss if you are not using a high-damage build, i suggest switching temporally to Black Knight/Atlas and use either a Queenslayer Halberd or a Zwei, with the Gifts that come "stock" you can do pretty well.

        This Boss is an absolute jerk to elemental fighters and bayonet users

          I'm really not sure how you're supposed to do this as a mage. Do yourself a favour and fight this one melee.

              Yeah, you just gotta keep trying until you get lucky and she doesn't do the tornadoes Luckily for me it was on my 2nd try. She did mostly spinning melee attack, and the hands coming out of the ground. 1st time i fought her she did the tornadoes constantly which are total bull****.

                Can't stand the hands that pop out of the ground. Even with quick mobility their dodge window is miniscule. One of the few bosses that are flat out BS in an otherwise great game.

                  She's rather easy to stagger and very lenient with her tells and dodges. Pretty much every attack has a windup and as long as you dodge out of the way, you're golden. Her dust clouds are pretty easy to avoid, if you see dust pop up on you, dodge out, if not, just stay in mid. Hardly have to use any magic on her, in fact better to just take her down since her second phase hardly buffs her at all. All in all - what the hell is everyone complaining about? The trek I get but this is one of the easiest boss fights in the game. I've never had a boss who's gimmick was "stand here and smack me" until now.

                    Honestly, Crown of Sand is already an area of the game where I strongly question what Bandai was thinking with its design, I don't need a two-ish minute trek from the nearest mistle to the boss - which has only happened all of twice in the game at this point, and the first time was the first Cathedral boss, and every other time, there's been a mistle right friggin' there outside the boss arena - and I REALLY don't need a boss fight where the gimmick is, "dodge this you filthy casul." I mean, I got through it well enough, but it was an unnecessary pain in the ass for how late in the game the devs decided to start pulling that crap.

                      After you beat the boss when Eva is revived so to speak, when she is like talking to jack does anyone know the soundtrack that plays there?

                        The true boss of this fight is the hike from nearest mistle to the boss room. I dunno who think it's a good idea to force you to wait for elevator then do a long distance trek in a huge long straight pathway of nothing that as long as your whole stamina bar to get to her. The first boss I decided not to solo solely because it took 2 damn minutes just to fight her again.. I'm fed up with the trek on my 4th retry so I just dps race her with Yakumo cuz ***** it

                          Is there a difference in fighting solo or is it because you stayed close, but you never got any of the annoying hands coming from the ground attacks.

                            You got the best mechanics i've ever seen, you got like 2 of the non-dodgeables. I always get multiple storm tornadoes and the front cone that can't be blocked
