In this guide dedicated to Bloodborne we want to help you defeat the Boss Belva Oscura Paarl. We won't get tired of repeating it, but Bloodborne is undoubtedly one of the most played exclusives on Sony consoles. In this guide we will talk about the boss fight against the Dark Beast Paarl, one of the toughest bosses you will encounter throughout history. This monstrous being is very agile and fast, but with due care it will not pose a big threat. The boss in question is totally optional but, if you manage to kill him, you will get a bronze trophy.
ATTENTION: we remind you that this is a Bloodborne bossfight, and consequently it can contain SPOILERS on the plot, so we invite you to continue reading the guide only if you have already finished the game or if you know the boss.
How to defeat the dark beast Paarl in Bloodborne? Here is the guide
The fight against the Dark beast Paarl it's tough enough, so if you prefer to face it when your character is at its most powerful, you can take it easy. You can do this either by returning to the lantern of the Hypogeum prison, as long as it is available, as from a certain moment on it will not be available anymore, both later, when you arrive at Yahar'gul for the normal events of the main plot.
Head to Yahar'gul's Lantern, Invisible Village, and wait near the stairs to the left waiting for the enemies to pass by. Get to the bottom of the stairs and go right, then continue down the next ramp. Kill the wheelchair shooter, then take the elevator to the lower level.
Go straight and turn the corner to the right, then go down other stairs again, continue to the right of the large staircase opposite and go through the door on the right. Kill the dog patrolling the area, go through the door on the right and go up the stairs where you will see another dog. Eliminate him too and go to the stairs on the far side of the area, collect the items in the left corner and return to the first room you entered.
Go through the cell on the left and enter the room below, collect the items here as well and continue through the hole in the right wall. Go down the small path / cave and go outside. Once you go down the halls, Paarl will appear in the square.
The one in front of you is a beast made practically of lightning, therefore it may help to wear the gear that has the highest resistance to lightning damage.
The best way to beat this monster is to stay as close to it as possible until you see it charge up. Take advantage of hitting Paarl when he is stopped while the electricity is intensifying, but be it ready to get away as far as possible to avoid the area attack that will follow. It is essential to stay under him until the area attack, because Paarl has a wide range and his attacks are very fast.
If, on the other hand, you stand in front of him, the boss will repeatedly attack you with his front legs and the way to save you, at this point, is to dodge forward until you bring yourself under him. When you are in this position you have to attack it as hard as you can, you can use the Fiery card which works very well to increase the damage dealt. When he takes enough damage, Paarl not only loses his electricity and becomes very fast and elusive, but beware, after a few attacks the boss will still charge up with electricity and then release an electric blast again.
Its weak point is the paws and by hitting them several times you may be able to stun him, which he will grant you a few moments to get to hit his face. After you've dealt enough damage to him, Paarl will lose his electric aura by collapsing to the ground, and here you can take advantage of it to inflict more damage on him while he can't fight back.
Killing him will earn you a badge that will unlock the weapon Thunder and Lightning card. At the end of the fight, open the door connecting Yahar'gul to Old Yharnam, and finally activate the Dark Beast Cemetery Lantern.
Reward: Hunter badge with sparkle
