How to defeat Alecto, Black Knife Ringleader
Alecto can move really fast and hits like a truck. Roll as fast as you can to dodge her attacks, they’re extremely powerful and can take you out instantly. During combat, she’ll heavily rely on her speed. Apply the Glintstone Pebble Ash to your weapon and use it when Alecto is about to land a hit to interrupt her attack.
Watch out for her flaming blade as well. That weapon can create a circular AoE that can inflict heavy damage.
The good news is that her AoE attack leaves her open for a couple of seconds. Try to take advantage of those brief moments to launch your attacks.

The Black Knife Tiche spirit can move very fast which makes her difficult to kill. She uses a hit-and-run strategy, and a red flame projectile that rarely misses the target. She can successfully draw the attention of bosses away from you. Use those moments to deliver devastating hits and defeat your opponents.
Summoning Black Knife Tiche costs 132 FP. Make sure to replenish FP fast if you’re planning to summon Black Knife Tiche.
