How to Beat Godrick the Grafted: Phase one

You will have to beat the boss in two phases. The boss uses a rolling maneuver after attacking with his axe. He will then go up in the air and slam down dealing high damage. Here the trick is to quickly roll or dodge the attack and rush for a strike at the boss. You will have very little time to attack as much as possible and then quickly return. 

Godrick also uses an AoE slam attack. You need to avoid this totally. Do not even try to go quickly for an attack because a single mistake can cause lots of damage. So it is better just to avoid the attack and stay far. You can deal high damage with critical attacks. Therefore, take this as an opportunity and use it whenever it is possible. 

You can summon a spirit for your assistance. The spirit can distract the boss so you can deal some damage easily without being worried about his strikes. The best time to attack Godrick in the first phase is whenever he uses slam attacks. This is because you can see it clearly when he uses these types of attacks. He will be stunned when his health reaches half. Now, without wasting any time, deal as much damage as you can before phase two starts.

How to Beat Godrick the Grafted: Phase two

When the second phase begins, the boss will shoot a stream of fire from a long distance. To avoid this, it is recommended to run towards and get behind him. This is because he keeps his back exposed while he uses this fire stream attack. If you avoid the attack and get behind, you can have some great hits to deal damage.

The two most difficult attacks in this phase are his fire attacks at random locations and the grab attack. In the fire attack, he will throw flames randomly, which will be hard for you to predict. So the best way is to be alert and dodge as much as possible. The other attack is when Godrick grabs you with his hand. This attack can be deadly if you don’t dodge it correctly. Godrick will roar before this attack, so you will get to know about it.

The best time to attack the boss is whenever he uses the stream of fire attack. Make use of this to get behind and keep attacking. Repeat this process and you will be able to beat the boss easily.
