Fight in the Center Area

Maneater - Fight in Center Area

The area is very narrow and is quite easy to fall off of, especially when fighting. The Maneater can also blow the player back with one of it's attacks, so be sure to fight in the slighter wider area located in the middle.

Be Careful of Falling to Death from a Charge Attack

If you get hit by a charge attack, you will be blown back. It is best to avoid the attack entirely, but also be sure to have a building located behind you to act as protection if blown back.

Prevent It from Buffing Itself by Cutting Off Its Tail

Maneater - Cutting Off its Tail

The Maneater buffs itself with its snake tail during the fight. Cut off its tail or stagger it to prevent it from buffing. The tail can also be locked-on to, so aim for it early on.

Maneater Cheese Strategy

Hide On The Ledge to the Right
(Requires the Thief's Ring to work)

After entering the fog, immediately head to the ledge with a dead body on the right. Once there, the Maneater will stay in aggro for a while (and possibly even hit you when it flies). It will lose interest after awhile then it will stand on its starting spot.

Once its attention is no longer on you, you can either use Poison Cloud to poison it for a slow kill or snipe it. Sniping the Maneater will cause it to aggro you again but it won't be able to reach you, it'll then head on the upper platform then stand there, from there, you can snipe it twice before it attempts to chase you again.
