You run circles around her (yes, amygdala is a girl folks, pay attention to the story for all of you guys saying “him”), attack, run circles, attack, rinse and repeat

its boring AF but works everytime

Imho, Watchdog Of Old Lords (previous boss in Defiled Chalice) is the hardest f*cker in the game if playing solo.

That’s what I say everytime but for some reason it’s hard for people to remember that Amygdala is a female lol

Everyone's experience facing bosses is different eh! 

I took the watchdog down 1st but am at my 15th + attempt VS Amygdala.

Being always below her and when her head is low enough, just jump attack with Hunter's Axe and hit it again and again until she is dead. (it's way faster than any other way)

The really hard bosses are in the DLC.

After many many many attempts and lots and lots of calming down, I managed to do it. 

 

I basically used my tricked Saw Cleaver and hit her in the crotch instead of the tail. I always waited for her to do one attack, either lifting her feets, swiping away or jumping and only reacted with one single attack afterwards. I also managed to find the perfect timing for the jump to ensure 100% reliability. 

 

The perfect spot seems to be right by her tail, near her back to the left or right. Did a few mistakes which left me 0 blood vials. 

 

I'm honestly a big fan of FromSoftware but that fight was pure garbage in my opinion. I hated my entire experience in the Defiled Chalice dungeon. Still recommends the game to friends tough,

both Watchdog of the old lords and Amygdala can more or less be cheesed:

 

Watchdog:

Spoiler

Stay in front of his head just far enough not to be hit, wait for him to do a side-ways bite-attack, then do a forward-R2 attack. Back up and repeat. If you don´t go far away he doesn´t usually use any charges.

 

Amygdala:

Spoiler

For the first 2/3 of the battle stay far enough away so her arm attacks don´t hit, and wait for her to smash down her arms and head. Run to the head and give it 1-2 hits (depending on weapon), back away and repeat.

As soon as she rips off some arms, run under her, right below the crotch, but make sure you´re not hit by the stomps. If your weapon has an overhead attack (like R1 with transformed Church Pick or Burial Blade) attack her thighs while staying safe. As soon as she jumps walk past where her tail has been and she´ll land with her head right in front of you, do 1-2 attacks and flee towards the crotch again, repeat. Warning: if you let her get too close to the side of the arena, her jumps may end up short and you could die, so try to keep her in the middle.

Normally though she should just jump between two spots, since you always make her turn around.

 

By staying under the crotch and not near the tail you should never be hit by any of her arm attacks, if you watch out for the stomps it´s easy to survive the last third without taking any damage.
