- Fighting the Night's Cavalry on a mount helps a lot.
- Try to focus on dealing damage to the knight, rather than his mount. The health bars of the horse and the boss are separate. Even if you manage to kill the horse, he will summon another one after a while.
- However, if you killing his horse will open the chance to perform a critical hit that will deal a lot of damage.
- You can double-jump to avoid many of his attacks (if you're mounted).
How to defeat?
Before the duel begins, it is useful to have a minimum of 3-4 bottles of blue tears to be able to have quite a lot of mana regeneration options. You will mostly fight on horseback to avoid attacks, while shooting long-range spells at the boss.
To be sure that you hit the opponent, lock the camera on the knight and not the horse. Then, shoot when you are sideways or facing the boss while he is charging at you. If you use spells while facing the boss with your back, the projectile will very often miss the enemy.
When the boss starts attacking by jumping towards you, dodge while on the mount to get behind his back. This way you will avoid the boss's attack. If he starts to drag his weapon on the ground, make a double jump over his weapon. This will also help you avoid the attack.
