You'll see him crouch before jumping when he's about to cast this. You can try to block this but it's best to dodge to the side.

Spell Ball

Kill The Gnoll First

Dark Alliance Kill Gnoll first
There will be Gnoll minions that spawn in the area. They can deal decent damage and cause Bleeding, so it's best to take care of them before even fighting him.

Don't Get Caught In A Combo

Dark Alliance Thurn Combo
While Thurn Dreamreader doesn't have much health, the dangers when fighting him are his lethal combos that cause numerous Debuffs. He can continuously use Spell Ball and just pin you down. Be ready to Evade when you see him about to cast any spell.

Use Your Ultimate ASAP

Dark Alliance Thurn Use Ultimate Early
Due to his low health, using your Ultimate as early as possible in the fight will make it end a lot quicker. You can also wait until he's Exhausted since he won't be able to defend himself and you can combine your Ultimate and combos to win immediately. Ultimates along with Fierce Attacks can interrupt his spell casting.
