So I managed to kill this guy easily about a week ago on my first run through the game, but that was before the nerf to the gower ring. Now the ring doesn't block the fire attack he does when flying in the air, and the fight is significantly harder as a result. I read online and found a trick to make it so he only stomps, but even doing that, he eventually flies in the air regardless. I know you can potentially get 900 fire resistance, but getting that amount is way more work than I'm really willing to put up with, so the only thing I can do now is just figure out just HOW to avoid the damn fire when he inevitably does that attack. Where in the world do I run to when he does it? Whenever he's in the air, it's pretty much an instant death, since the fire attack does such a huge amount of damage. Every other attack he does I can dodge easily - hell, it wouldn't even really be much of a fight IF he didn't have this nigh unblockable and undodge-able ability of his.
So, any tips on how to avoid this damn attack?
