How to Defeat Prism Knight
To defeat the Prism Knight in Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon, there are strategies that you can deploy to figure out her attack patterns. Here are the steps on how to defeat her:
Focus on Prism Knight
You may see some crystals that don the arena you’re facing the Prism Knight in. Don’t prioritize them as they don’t actually do anything to hurt you. You can smash the crystals for extra gems or to make room should you need it against this boss. Ignore the Crabstals as well unless they become too troublesome to tolerate.
Instead, focus your attention on Prism Knight during your fight with her as she has a tendency of cloning herself. You can easily tell who is the real Prism Knight as her clones only have 1 HP and you’ll be able to see it when you’re next to them.
Don’t Ignore the Clones
Prism Knight’s clones may only be 1 hit but they can attack you with energy beams from the square they’re in on any four directions. You’ll have to thin them out before they become too unbearable else you might find you’ll have no safe place to move to.
Attack The Real Prism Knight
When you spot the real Prism Knight, keep focus on her. She’ll charge up for an attack leaving her vulnerable. It’s important that you attack her while she’s charging otherwise she will do an unavoidable energy attack from beneath you. The only way to stop her is to attack her to prevent her from charging.
Keep doing this until you’ve successfully beaten and unlocked Prism Knight as a playable character
