Bosses are special and powerful enemies in Salt and Sacrifice, that do not respawn when defeated even if the player exits the area or rests at an obelisk. The game features several Mini-Bosses, as well as special bosses called Mages. Bosses are the larger main battles usually representing a chapter or a section in the game. When bosses are encountered, a title of their name is displayered along with a full HP bar towards the bottom of the screen. Bosses may also be accompanied with some Enemies, so players may prepare some extra Items to help beforehand in preparparing for these battles encountered throughout the game.

  • Mini-Bosses can be found in special areas.
  • The Hunts focus on Mages instead.


Boss fights Tips

Boss fights are the most challenging aspect of Salt and Sacrifice and you might get frustrated when being defeated over and over by the same boss, so here are some tips that might help you overcome a difficult fight:

Build Rage:

If you are using Rage Runic Arts, make sure to build up rage before jumping into the fight. This will allow you to spam your skills as soon as the fight starts giving you a tremendous edge over the enemy.

Use other enemies:

Mages are hostile to all other creatures except their own minions. This includes Hazeburnt enemies, regular enemies and even other mages. If regular enemies spawn near your boss fight, you can lure them in and use them as a distraction or to even deal damage to the Mage.

Staggering Bosses:

While Throwing potions don’t deal that much damage to bosses, they are still very effective at staggering them. Throw potions into the Mage until you see its head starts flashing white. Once this happens, jump into the air and press the grappling hook button to perform a critical strike.

Block and Roll:

All Bosses have a wide array of attacks and they often spam them constantly, leaving very little window to strike back. If you are a veteran Souls player, you’ll most likely try to roll away from every situation, but in some cases blocking is a better alternative. Large AoE attacks for example will require you to roll very far away, and once you recover you most likely won’t be able to strike back. Blocking the attack and taking a little damage in these cases will often be a much more viable strategy, as it’ll keep you closer to your enemy.

Guiltless Shards:

These consumable items allow you to remove the Spellmark effect from your body, allowing you to access your maximum HP. Its highly advisable to save the Shards for Boss Encounters, as having more HP will greatly increase your survival chances.
