Throughout all of Bloodborne, Hunters proved to be some of the most challenging enemies. The Old Hunters decided to add a ton of them to the mix by making them a common enemy. You’d think that would prepare you for one of the toughest fights in Bloodborne’s first expansion, but you’d be wrong.
Lady Maria of the Astral Clocktower is the third story boss in this expansion. She is a Hunter and a powerful one at that. She wields two blades that can be combined into a sort of spear and a pistol and she is faster than anything you’ve seen thus far. Oh, and although she rarely uses her firearm, her range is insane.
To prep for this fight, you’ll want to bring your strongest weapon, some Fire Paper, some Molotov Cocktails, and plenty of Blood Vials. Raise your Physical and Blood defense as high as you possibly can, since that will help you last longer in this nail-biting encounter.
Lady Maria has two phases with the second one having a sort of sub-phase. Each one requires a different approach, so we’ll break down the phases separately.
