Different Strategies To Defeat Defeat Alecto

Now once we have won half of the game it’s time to win the other half of the game by killing her for that here we have different strategies that you can check below and one more thing that you cannot summon in this fight only you and her.

She is immune to poison, scarlet rot, or hemorrhage so must not use them rather you can use Frost and Physical damage, which will give her great damage.

Ranged Strategy

If you have Terra Magicus and Comet Azur spells with yourself then you can use this strategy, so you need to cast the spells from the start of the game that will keep her down from the starting of the game.

Now once she is up you need to move away from her and maintain a good distance, as you have depleted lots of her health in the starting itself makes things easy for you. And because of her speed, she can easily dodge your spells and that’s why you need to cast homing ability now which will surely be going to connect her no matter what.

This spell doesn’t have the ability to deal huge damage but this can slow her speed, you can now use more deadly spells Adula’s Moonblade is one of them as it has the ability to take her down.

With that, you should also use defensive spells like Zamor Ice Storm and Freezing Mist that has the ability to protect you and at the same time, also deals further Frost damage to Alecto. So this is how you defeat Alecto with the help of ranged strategy.

Melee Strategy

Here in this strategy, the most important thing you need is a heavy weapon coat it with Freezing Grease that has the ability to deal Frost Damage but if you will be able to combine the attack with Ash of War: Hoarfrost Stomp then will be going be lethal for Alecto.

She is fast and attacking her is really a tough thing to do but while she was performing her Helmsplitter attacks and Leg Sweep that was the time for you to give your best with a weapon that we have just discussed above.

So if you have a good amount of patience and calmness then you will be able to win the battle easily.

Cheese Strategy

Here is a small trick for you, at the beginning of the fight you have to hop on the rock that is there on the left of Alecto, due to some glitch she will not be able to reach you there and now you are completely safe until she performs Helmsplitter attack when that happens simply move away and then again get back three.
