The Third Lamb is a Boss in Salt and Sanctuary

A shadow of her former glory, the Third Lamb is the bound and broken thrall of the Untouched Inquisitor. There was a time when this hippogriff had pride, the praise of her master, and a name, but the Inquisitor saw sin in these things, and saw to it that they became sacrifices, like the Lamb itself."

      Is the wiki correct in that it only does lightning damage? Me thinks the standard attacks do slash damage.

        Terrible boss. Most bosses in the game are terrible. It's awesome to run around and explore and then you run into the cheapest, most move spams you'll ever see in a video game. Awful game design.

          Easy with great axe + fire charm + light gear with poison and light resistance. Just need to dodge the physical atks and stun when possible.

              I am doing Newgame + I can just say don't be cocky against this guy. Unless you're a god at dodging and managing stamina. I beat this boss first attempt barely.

                Just beat him on level 36. Used "Teuthis Shield" to block the physical attacks, then backed off for a few seconds to recover stamina. Light roll through the lighning attacks.
                Is absolutely manageable this way imho!

                  The combination of Lightning Attacks + Poison Tail + Aggressive Attack Combos suggests that this boss's design is meant to evoke the Sanctuary Guardian from the Dark Souls DLC.

                    The Sunset Kite Shield has a value of 100 against lightning, thus making it very useful against The Third Lamb.
                    The Bag of Earth, which you'll have to deliver to Fern for him to give you this shield, can be acquired before fighting The Third Lamb.
                    You simply have to say "Yes" to both of his questions to be given this shield.

                      A LOT harder than the Inquisitor despite being just after. Might just be because I'm trying to tank though. Anyways, Pitchfire will solve a lot of your problems!

                        The transmutation of the ashes of the previous boss makes the mirror shield.07 Jul 2016 20:35  

                        The transmutation of the ashes of the previous boss makes the mirror shield. Think this was a subtle hint? You get a fire shield right before fighting the kraekan wyrm fire breathing dragon and you can if you are OCD about talking to your alchemist get a lightning block shield for this fight.

                          Stay away from this bird and block its electric beam. Then switch staff and launch fire barrages. Time your barrages to stop the bird's jump-attacks.

                              Some tips on beating Third Lamb21 Apr 2016 05:27  

                              Early on in the fight, especially if it's the first time you fight him, take some time to learn his moves. He won't be an easy fight because he can fight you up close and from afar, so he has no need to close the gap if it is you that needs to get in close. If you can fight from afar, so can he. His wave of electro-balls can be a bit tricky to deal with and intimidating at first, but if you continue to run towards him, his electro-balls will fly over your head instead of hitting you. Don't rely on this entirely, however. Sometimes an electro-ball spawns a little lower than it should and it hits you. This can open you up for a devastaing combo hit, especially in the second stage. To avoid this, roll or block, depending on your build. His bites are easy to dodge. Just know that his bites are almost always a combo. If he bites, he will either bite again, or follow up with something else. He may follow up hit bite into a tail attack. This attack does poison damage, and can ruin the battle for the unprepared. In the second phase, he can follow up his bite with a shock attack. Beware of this, as it's a combo you don't want to be on the receiving end of. He has an overhead attack that pushes the Lamb backwards, and makes a shockwave upon landing. If the plavey times this right, they can roll through the attack, then jump immediately after to avoid the shockwave, allowing the player to get in some hits. Do this only if you are confident that you will not die if you were to mess up and get hit. If you are low, take this time to heal, as, even in the second stage, he can't follow up with anything too long range to hit you if you back off the heal. Consider this a breather time if you're feeling like you need a bit of a break in the fight.If there's anything I missed, post a reply.

                                I've been using the Cavalier set, and this guy just hits too *****ing hard and way too aggressively to deal with!

                                  With fastroll you can avoid all his physical attacks, then rush in when he readies the lightning breath and hack away. The breath doesn't hit you if you hug his front.

                                    Just hammer away at it with the fireball spell as quickly as possible and it should go down in a few seconds.

                                      He's extremely weak to slash, fire, and arcane. I used the Jaw of Death and took huge chunks of his health bar out scissor style. Also, equip your lightening resist ring It makes the fight much easier.
