      As a sorcerer, you can hide behind a corner as soon as it spawns, get close and cast pestilent mist. It wont teleport away, and dies after 5 casts.

        Parry riposte with a +10 elemental dagger (magic is a bad idea against her) and hornet ring equipped, then charge up a Ultra Greatsword or Greataxe heavy attack. If she aint dead yet one more R1 should do it.

          HP is slightly off for NG. I used toxic mist cheese on him and dealt 1560 two times and an additional 910 with a 3rd use, totaling to 4030 instead of 4090.

            Using the Pestilent Mist sorcery is a useful way of taking down the sage without chasing it. Since attacking them is, for some reason, the trigger that enables enemies to advance into phases (bosses) and to teleport/etc., using a health-draining ability that doesn't actually "attack" them is effective. I just used it myself so I could get the Crystal Sorceries a bit earlier without chasing the mini-boss through the Grand Archives. Very handy. I considered it to be kind of useless until I came across Havel and realized it could do way more damage to him than my sword ever could and left me far less open as long as I cast it far enough away from his attacks before luring him in.

              just throw 2 dung pies for toxic status on him/her/it. kills him/her/it easier than other methods and doesn't require a special build

                You can cast pestilent mist and kill him in the beginning without him teleporting. Just cast it and dodge his spells. It's what I have been doing with my sorcerer build.

                      Yes, somebody, write about Sacred flame strategy. I'm a swordsman (just got 10 of INT/FTH), and yet thanks to Sacred Flame I managed to kill this guy at the Archives Entrance. It's an amazing pyromancy.
