Equip the Thief's Ring

Due to the Old Hero being blind, equipping the Thief's Ring will make you difficult to detect. Even without the Thief's Ring equipped, making some distance and remaining still will make it impossible for him to detect you. However, it is still much safer to equip the Thief's Ring for the fight.

Attack Him From Behind

It is recommended to attack the Old Hero from behind. His sword swings will not hit you for as long as you remain behind him. And given his large size, you can easily steer clear of his attacks as well by keeping your position.

Be Careful When You're Distanced From Him

The Old Hero will sometimes step back and distance from the player to make a devastating attack against you. If he does this, avoid his line of sight immediately by rolling.

Run Away When He Raises His Sword

When the Old Hero grips his blade with both hands he will smash it into the ground, damaging anything under it and nearby with the shockwave it disperses. This is a good chance to go get a few hits in as he recovers.

Don't Be Aggresive

The Old Hero's attack power is extremely high. Also, the range of his attacks is very large and wide, so don't be aggresive with attacking. The safest strategy is to use hit-and-run tactics for this fight.
