I tested it with pyromancy, great fireball fire swathe even fireball. None seem to do a lot of damage, neither does any poison build up unless her posion resistances is too high

I used a combination of magic, melee and pyromancy. Summoned Benhart, casted crystal Magic Weapon on my sword and rushed in and got some hits in. From then tried to melee Elana as much as possible. When she does her Dark Storm, get out of range and fire Soul Spear (or better) or re-cast Crystal Magic Weapon. When she is summoning the skeletons, cast Firestorm (or similar) which will bring all of them down to low health (my stats 46 int, 26 faith, +7 flame). If she summons Velstadt, try to kill it ASAP. Try to keep ol' Benhart alive as long as you can!

I was too much of a wimp to try any of the close range flames but I did use warmth on my allies as they fought her so they would last alittle longer

I was doing the boss, she summoned Velstadt and like a minute after that she summoned skeletons, I don't see why the opposite wouldn't happen. I have a screenshot I can upload for proof.

A quick guide. Respec (if necessary) to a strength/ strength + faith(intelligence) character, get a huge weapon, say, what I used was Drakekeeper's axe +10, and when se begins summoning Velsdtadt, start crushing Velstadt. He has low enough health to make my around 185ish I think character be able to kill him before any need for dodging. Bernhardt is also useful, and remember the shortcut bonfire.

I used a+10 broadsword infused with magic & cmw... only summon one NPC. Fight is over after two summons. (I'm a melee/caster)

I'm trying to crack this boss. I finally killed velstadt and a round of skeletons, and she goes and summons velstadt AGAIN. Has this happened for anyone else or does this game just hate me a little more than normal today?

It's normal. I've had her summon Velstadt three times on me in one fight. Good times!

Best strat I've found for this boss is to ignore velstad and kill off two skeletons. I actually prefer she summon velstad as he's more predictable and easier to dodge. skellies tutle too damn much, making them a somewhat hard kill. high dark defense is a must as her hardest nuke is the three orbs. she still kills me 3-4 times, maybe, as I re-remember her exact patterns and until rng is on my side, but she ain't tough.

And I forgot: play unlocked, keep enemies in view, and low equip load helps a ton (I'm talking 30-40% burden) in making your dodges meaningful and your run speed significant. denial helps too, but only if you've learned enough. shields you won't be using so grab a stamina regen shield, chloranthy ring and two hand your weapon.

Yup she hates me as well, summoned velstadt 3 times in a row. LMFAO

She has high fire def , I was doing only 47 DMG with the great fireball!

Magic is definitely one of her weaknesses. I used the puzzling stone sword and Magic Weapon to easily kill her off. Using the two handed heavy attacks to keep summon skeletons and pigs at a distance.

I've seen a lot of bad bosses, but this is by far one of the worst.

I died maybe 12 times or more, i finall beat her solo because she managed to summon her skeletons 3 times in a row instead of that cheeky golden f$#$

Definitely feels RNG heavy. I've had her down to almost no HP while running away from her Velstadt summon, then she summons an additional 5 skeletons while teleporting around trying to hit me from behind. Super frustrating to try and manage. No time to do anything but kiting and healing. Seems designed as a co-op boss you only get lame melee summons for it you're trying solo.

In a lore perspective nashandra is her sister. So of coarse they are going to look similar.

She summoned skeletons only when I was hollow and the one time I was not hollow, she summoned Velsdalt, is the summoning completely random when soloing?
By Anonymous
#15962949
I tried both ways and only got Velsdalt.

I get harmless pigs. So yeah random. Also don't ask how it went.
