        He appears to actually have 3 phases. Once he hits 50% HP, his eyes light up, he becomes more aggressive, he will follow his lightning attack with a leap, and his thrust, instead of being delayed, will be followed by two swings in the same direction. Once he hits 25% HP, he becomes slightly more aggressive again, and will now follow up his leap with two slashes, and unlike the followup slashes on the thrust, he will perform these swings in whatever direction you are from him when he lands from said leap. In his third phase, he is also guaranteed to follow up his overhead slam, even if you are nowhere near him when he begins the followup.

          Pick either: The Three, The Iron Ones, or pauper class. Buy birian firepots from the merchant if you pick one of those creeds.Then throw three birian firepots on his back, making sure that they collide with him, not the ground, and he will die before he can turn around.
