How to Beat Solaris
Solaris Boss Guide:The battle against Solaris takes place through a relatively straight forward attack pattern, as opposed to certain other Bosses. Solaris is unique in that his health bar protected by a powerful barrier, in which the player must first eradicate before being able to damage him. Fortunately, Solaris' attack pattern remains identical during his shielded and unshielded form.
When fighting Solaris, remain close to him for the majority of the battle. He usually alternates between regular, telegraphed Slash attacks and Laser attacks, and although he is capable of performing a Leap Strike, he will not execute it often as you are already within his proximity. The trade off to this tactic is that you may get his by Solaris' Laser Attack which is executed in a horizontal, sweeping motion, however the damage is not lethal and being able to dish out constant damage, while eliminating his usage of the Leap Attack makes this an effective approach. Throughout the battle, stack up as much damage on Solaris as possible while evading incoming slashes.
The one occasion where you shall back away from Solaris is when he levitates to perform his Laser Barrage Attack. Start running away from him once he levitates to stay out of range of his lasers. Remember never to stay directly below Solaris as that is where foes will receive maximum damage from the lasers. These lasers also leave the ground burning for a few seconds where it lands, so staying out of range and getting some breathing room is the ideal strategy to deal with this attack. If you spot an opportunity, maintain pressure by performing a throw shield strike. Repeat the cycle by approaching him in melee once again after he lands and damaging him until you finish him off.
