Player Notes

  • Any wand can be transmuted into the Cocoon Battledore using Murdiella Mal's Ashes, a Shimmering Pearl and 100.000 Salt.
  • This boss can be cheesed with the right build. Every single attack she does is Holy; if you have the adequate stats to wield Ashen Effigy, every single attack will deal 0 damage while blocking. With patience and waiting for her to cast the arcane missle barrage to get a few attacks in, you can finish this fight with no problem.
  • A noticed bug that happens is when you're blocking her three hit melee combo attack, if you press directly against her and block her first hit will make contact but the other two will act as if you're not there. (To be confirmed)

      The 0 salt drop is in my opinion not a bug. Lore wise, this might indicates Murdiella Mal’s essence: She’s a true goddess rather than mortal saltborne. She is a lightborne, has no salt to drop. Unlike the Nameless, who wants born-of-light desperately but will never succeed.

        Her holy slash actually doesn't become the 3-hit combo in phase two. the 3-hit combo, while very similar, is actually a whole new attack gained in addition to everything else, as she's still capable of doing the original single hit slash and both have different startup animations

          If you have trouble dodging her homing missiles (the 5 little stars that she summons around her), watch her head closely. When she starts raising her head back, roll away from her (I'm assuming you are fast rolling) and cue a jump during the roll. This will make you jump immediately at the end of the roll. While mid-air, dash towards her. Retaliate.

            Stay close to her and roll around her. That seemed to have worked because then her airstrike [basically] will just target the area you're in. Also a Greatsword and I think all elements chop her down to size. Blocking in this case isn't very handy...

              you don't get salt and gold because you kill her only for the transumation item which it the Murdiella Mal's Ashes

                I can confirm the blocking bug. although i kept blocking because I didn't want to die, my stamina did not decrease after the first hit.

                  i had the full holy knight armor so she didnt deal too much dmg
                  get it by giving the bag of dirt to the guy under the village of smiles

                    always keeps yourself below her, worst case scenario she'll punch you, but you wont die from infinite magic spam hardcore bs

                      Tested all elements,no difference in damage other than arcane wrecks her so badly she seems to stop teleporting and tries to corner you to death because she is so pissed.
