Perfumer Tricia is a Boss in Elden Ring. The Perfumer Tricia boss encounter is in fact a duo boss fight as she is accompanied by a Misbegotten Warrior with his own boss health bar. Tricia is a spellcaster who prefers to remain at range and carries a shield to block most melee attacks. The Misbegotten Warrior is an extremely agile creature wielding a greatsword. This duo is found at the end of the Unsightly Catacombs in Mt. Gelmir. This is an optional bossfight, as players don't need to defeat them in order to advance in Elden Ring. However, doing so yields useful Items and Runes.
The spirit of Perfumer Tricia can be summoned for aid in battle by using the Perfumer Tricia Ashes.
Tricia was once known as a healer who dedicated her efforts to treating Misbegotten, Omen, and all those seen as impure. When her efforts failed, she was their companion as they died, watching over them to ensure that they could pass peacefully, free of pain.
A tale akin to the origins of the deathbed companions.

An absorption of 100 means no damage goes through, and a resistance of -100 mean the enemy takes 2x damage from that source. 0 means damage goes pretty much as is.
The resistance numbers is the buildup amount to trigger it. For example if a resistance is 100 you must deal 100 points of whatever aux buildup to trigger it. Note that these go down over time, and increase each time the effect procs.

Perfumer Tricia Fight Strategy
The Best Tips for Perfumer Tricia:
- Dodge or move to the side of the arena as soon as you enter the fog gate. The Misbegotten Warrior almost always lunges at the door when the fight begins. Wait until you are clear to use any summons if you are opting for that.
- Use tanky Spirit Ashes or ones with good stagger such as the Lone Wolf Ashes to distract the Misbegotten.
- Get close to Tricia and pummel her with melee attacks to break her stance and get a critical attack in. Finish her off before your summons are killed.
This encounter has a steep difficulty due to the very aggressive, very powerful Misbegotten Warrior who will always close the distance. Tricia herself does not pose much of a threat as she will attempt to maintain distance and cast spells that hit in a wide arc from medium range. When the fight begins, summon your best Spirits in order to distract the Misbegotten and then immediately get up close to Tricia and pummel her with fast melee strikes. This will cause her to pull up her shield which does little to reduce damage from your constant barrage. It is also exceedingly easy to break her stance, setting her up for a highly damaging critical attack. Try to get rid of Tricia before your summons expire or get killed.
For the Misbegotten Warrior, do not attempt to create distance as the arena is relatively small and he has leaping attacks that travel a great distance. Whenever he swings horizontally, dodge through the attack utilizing your roll's iframes instead of dodging backwards. Dodging backwards increases the time his sword's hitbox overlaps with your hitbox, causing a hit. This is especially important since he will likely have you with your back against the wall most of the time. Always try to get behind him and hit him once or twice. Do not get greedy. For his vertical slashes, always dodge sideways. In fact, the only time you should be dodging backwards is when he leaps to perform his slam attack, but even then, you should be moving diagonally.
Magic and Ranged Users
Similarly to the Melee Strategy, do not attempt to create distance against the Misbegotten Warrior. Dodge through his attacks and use basic, quick-firing spells such as Glintstone Pebble when his back is turned. Consider using Melee-based Glintstone sorceries as well as these are typically cast much faster as a tradeoff for having little to no ranged capabilities. Just as with melee users, use a Spirit summon in the beginning and take Tricia out immediately to get her out of the way and then focus on the Misbegotten.
If not, you can attempt to separate them in the arena and choose to focus on the Misbegotten Warrior since Tricia's moveset is vert slow-moving and limited. It is recommended that Tricia be kept to the middle while you face the warrior towards the edges of the arena so that you can use the pillars lining the walls to block Tricia's perfume. Focus on one before the other. Once you get close to Tricia, it should be easier to clear her.

Misbegotten Warrior Attacks & Counters

|Plunging Blade||The Warrior performs a spinning slash and immediately leaps upwards before plunging his sword to impale his target.||Dodge sideways or under the boss during the leap.|
|Flurry||The Warrior can string any of the above attacks into dangerous combos.||Recognize his patterns and learn the proper dodges and timings.|
|Whirlwind||The Warrior raises his right leg, stomps fiercely and then spins twice, whirling his blade around.||Dodge away diagonally if you have room, otherwise dodge through to get behind him before the second spin.|

- The pairing of Perfumer Tricia and the Misbegotten Warrior seems to be a nod towards the similar pairing of Hekji Tengai and Kendo Rappa from the manga Boku no Hero Academia. The larger of the two is a beast-like brawler with a long red mane who uses strong physical attacks, providing the offence whilst the smaller of the two erects golden shields to provide a concurrent defense. Additionally, the location they're responsible for guarding is also an underground catacomb.
