Tres Angustias Strategies
For this battle, parrying and blocking will be very helpful against these three. And also, be aware of your surroundings because not only are you pressured to watch for their random attacks but also the floor beneath you that is engulfed in flames will constantly rise up forcing you to use the walls and platforms to keep climbing.
Two of the sisters wield a spear which they use to conjure a lightning beam while the other uses a bludgeon like a boomerang. The lightning beams can easily blocked and evaded, or better yet parried at the right time. While the bludgeon can also be blocked, but it is recommended to keep your distance to avoid getting hit while it circulates around your position. Having the Rosary Bead: Perpetua's Protection which is rewarded from defeating Perpetua gives The Penitent One additional defense against lighting based attacks.
Just remember, simply watch out for their attacks, strike back when there is an opening and be mindful of the pit of fire below you to avoid getting killed by it.
If you defeat the boss you will see the writing "REQUIEM AETERNAM" upon the screen and rewards you with 43 as well as unlocking the Trophy/Achievement: Dance of Death.
Attacks & Counters
|Floating Position||The three sisters will constantly float and randomly attack. One of the two sisters with a spear will aim its spear in your direction and then shoot out a lightning beam. This can be parried and blocked or evaded by jumping over it. While the other sister wielding a bludgeon will throw it out towards your direction in a circular motion and will boomerang back to its wielder. You can block it if you get caught in between its positioning but it's better to keep your distance from it to avoid getting hit.|
|Sorrowful Positioning||The sisters will line up in a vertical line either from the left or right side of the wall. Once they are in position, the ones wielding the spears will shoot out a beam that can be blocked, evaded, and parried. While the other will throw out its bludgeon similar to how it does but the duration of the weapon circulating is a bit longer. To counter it, you can block it if you get caught in between its positioning but it's better to keep your distance from it to avoid getting hit.|
|Shadow Form||Once their health reaches about 50% less, they will merge into one into a shadow form for a short time, then they will briefly transform into one being, then telegraphs a large vertical beam at its location. Use the opportunity to attack them while they are in a shadow form, then dash away once they come out of their shadow form to avoid the large beam.|
|As One Anguish||The three sisters merge as one and telegraphs a large vertical beam at its location. Dash away to keep your distance and then close in to follow up with an attack.|
