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."

      I heard this boss was a giant block for some people.
      I went in first try with a Steel Centipede, an unoptimized build and no preparation.
      She was just as easy as the Inquisitor right before her. Just jump and attack, only 1 attack that can hit you and it barely hurts, and that's the beak attack.
      You can get hit by lightning during a jump attack, but you should just roll behind her when she does that anyways.

        This thing can be Tanked out with the Ashen Effigy (7th Upgrade) Shield without taking any damage from melee Attacks. For the build i've used the Overlord set, Axe of Splendor with salt charm, House of Splendor creed (goldenwine is still op), Mossy Ring, Crystalmoath Ring, Bloodflower Ring and Fused Metal Ring. I've also used three miracles: Divine Blessed Weapon, Guardian Blade and Spirited Mend

          im not sure about the damage type of his magical attacks. i tried to outtank he boss with my shield build but i took more damage with sunset kite shield then with type 46 towershield. i then tried to tank it with the ashen effigy to test if its arcane damage, but still got damaged. its definitely not lighning or arcane damage so this information is just wrong!

            BE AGGRESSIVE. I just fought it and won first try. just destroy it whenever it does that big chargy lightning attack and then maintain distance and find holes to poke it. and wear lightning protective stuff. Oh, and I used that fire attack charm + that consumable that gives your attacks fire. Was dealing*****ton of dmg

              Melee fighers!!: By the time I ended up beating this thing I was using the following strategy and didn't even run out of potions by the end, because these seem to work if you have good timing (using pitch fire wasn't really helpful for me, it was better just to learn his move set): 1. At the beginning it will use a charged up lighting, and this is the best move to use to strikes. You want to use a fast weapon, so if you're 2h bruiser (like I was) I would use increased attack speed. When it's charging up, you'll want to be about half of its width away from it and roll through the lightning wave. Attack while rolling and you should be able to get 1 more hit if using 2h great weapon and 2 if a faster weapon. Then back up (i.e. don't get greedy). 2. If it's moving toward you, expect one of: a. Bite - move a little back and you can get a quick hit likely. b. Leap backwards and slam - if you time it well, you can simply walk forward right after it leaps and the shockwave won't hit you and quick hit. c. Tail Sting - I usually just back up and goad out another move, because most of the time it'll follow with a slam that can knock you across the screen. d. Leap forwards and slam - you need to dodge roll toward him to avoid, NOT BACKWARD. This is the hardest to see telegraphed, but once you have the timing, you'll have it for good. With these, you'll usually find yourself in Phase 2 fairly quickly. Here's where knowing how to handle the other moves pays off: 1. If it uses the lightning, it's got 4 follow-up moves pretty much every time: a. Dodge roll THROUGH IT while it's casting the lightning wave, not after if has already cast it like before. b. It uses a quick lightning follow-up that casts 3 homing lightning bolts, but since you rolled behind, they are on the other side so you have a sec for a quick hit, but get ready to dodge roll again because those lightnings are coming toward you and... c. It uses either: i. a jump slam away, but you can simply back up or dodge roll in the direction away from the leap. This is usually followed by a slam and short lightning breath combo, but it's nearly always in the direction of the jump slam, so if you're behind it safely wail away. ii. a sting, then a slam, then a lightning breath. If you dodge roll through it during the sting and continue to do so until you're behind it, you'll avoid all of them. iii. While it's recovering from the lightning breath, you can usually get another quick hit. d. Usually, it will then turn around and do a quick combo of a slam then a lightning blast, but if you dodge roll through it, quick hit, then expect a Bite or a Backwards Jump Slam, either of which are just a dodge roll backwards and then move forward for a quick hit while it recovers. I think I have all that right but if not, please let me know in replies. Happy salt hunting!!

                Up to this point in the game I had yet to see a bad boss. Now this boss is tough but what makes it sloppy game design is giving it a spam move when the fight speeds up, this boss's mini lightning is just a filler move to try and lure aggression in the beginning and stamina conservation at the end. the problem with this concept is his mini lighting ability to stun and then all you can do is watch him combo you to death. This boss is unnecessarily hard to make up for the ease of the boss before it

                  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.

                                              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.
