This battle can be considered a variant of the duel against the Cleric Beast. Both bosses are adept at forward stomps and sweeping frontal attacks although Vicar Amelia is much more effective with the latter. The classic tactic of focusing on the boss’ sides and rear applies here and her slow movements make it easy to focus on these areas. Don’t let her long hair confuse your sense of distance. You’re a lot closer than you think and can deal a lot of damage with the shortened blade.
