This boss can be easy with a sword, bow, and a bunch of arrows. Pick a cubby door along one of the straight ways and fend off skeletons with your melee weapon. Whenever the chariot starts approaching, jump out and shoot him once or twice befote hopping back into your door way. Rinse and repeat until he crashes in the pit, then shoot his horses until they fall into the pit. You win!
Just find another spot!
No time
You can summon Ray if you clear out the path to this boss before summoning him in the hut with the two hollows.
Use lingering flame for ez kill
