Location: South of Altus Highway Junction (Night Time Only)
Quite similar to the Draconic Tree Sentinel, this Boss will present a real challenge for magic users. Indeed, the mobility and speed of the rider will often put a strain on the automatic spell lock. As a result, you should only fire when the Boss is either directly in front of you or immobilized at close range after a heavy attack. For the rest, you’ll need to make good use of Torrent’s mobility during the fight, especially his double-jump, which will allow you to reposition yourself while passing over the rider.
For the hand-to-hand classes, the confrontation will be slightly more easy, although it is obviously very dangerous to be so close to the Horseman. To emerge victorious, take advantage of the torrent double-jump to change direction in mid-air before landing a quick blow on the Boss. During the fight, you’ll notice that some of your blows won’t hit the rider but his mount. This is a good thing for you because once the horse is eliminated, the Night’s Cavalry will fall to the ground and you can chain it without it being able to react. At this moment, avoid moving away from the Boss because he will take the opportunity to summon a new mount, instead try to avoid his heavy attacks before retaliating with a combo.
