The Snail itself does not have many attacks except for a grab, which it uses extremely rarely and is difficult to get hit from. So you can keep attacking without stopping and use up all your stamina. The attacked enemy can teleport to another place and become invisible again. In that case, you are look for the white aura again and continue attacking him.
If you die during the fight, after entering the arena, the Snail will be in its original position and after the attack it will start teleporting to the same places as last time . So you can remember the individual locations and be ready to greet the snail as it appears elsewhere.
The snail doesn't have much HP, so you'll deal with him quickly. Just watch out for summoned aides. It is best to bring them to the beginning of the arena, avoid their forward roll attack and quickly switch to the boss. You can get summoned allies to focus on summons, and deal with Snail without having to watch your back.
Both instances of the boss battle plays out the same. The stronger version differs only in that it summons stronger allies, in form of Godskin Apostle and Godskin Noble. However, the overall tactics don't change.
