She has a total of two attack phases which are explained as follows:
In the first phase, you’ll first need to clear all the enemies in front of her to make space for attacks. As soon as you land your first attack on the boss, she’ll start to summon shadow assassins (her main attack – Spectral Assassin) that can deal 20-30 damage. You can easily dodge these attacks and engage in ranged combat with the boss.
As you continue damaging her, she’ll summon more of these assassins in order to create a distraction. All you need to do is evade them and continue to make space for yourself for landing effective blows on Leandra.
In this phase, Leandra will start to cast fire bolts at you that can easily be dodged. It can either be a single bolt or charged up to three bolts that diverge at close range and converge at long range. The most viable attack that you must remember is her temporal blindness.
You need to use the abilities like Veil of Chaos and Blood Rite to travel to a different location and dodge difficult attacks otherwise you’d be vulnerable to her assassins. She’s not one of the most difficult bosses to deal with but can maneuver to outshine if you don’t read her movement and attack patterns properly.
After you’ve successfully defeated Leandra the Shadow Priestess in the Dunley Farmlands, here are the rewards that’ll be unlocked:
