Long Distance Weapons Are Recommended

Flamelurker - Long Distance Weapons

Since the Flamelurker attacks aggressively, using a bow or any Catalyst weapons can make the fight easier due to their long distance reach.

Roll Backwards When Dodging

Flamelurker - Roll Backwards

When dodging Flamelurker's attacks, roll behind you. Flamelurker's attack hit box stays out a while, and rolling to the side will result in you getting hit.

For the First 50% of Its Health, Attack After the Explosion!

For the first 50% of its health, attack during the opening after it explodes. However, if you do not attack from the front, its flames can slowly chip away at your HP.

For the Last 50% of Its Health, Attack After Dodging Its Jump!

For attacks after it has reached less than 50% health, attack during the opening after its jump attack. If you roll forward when it jumps, you will be right behind the Flamelurker when it lands.

Increase Flame Resistance

If you are taking many hits and dying, try increasing your fire resistance by equipping a ring or using the spell Water Veil.

Flamelurker Cheese Strategy

Poison Cloud

The Flamelurker's aggro can be removed by using the thief's ring and hiding in the opposite sides of the walls in the area you fight the Flamelurker. Your primary goal is to remove the Flamelurker's aggro while slowly making yourway behind him. Once successful, use Poison Cloud and watch the Flamelurker die.
