Like A Bat Outta Hell
Tiamat starts the fight flying around shooting fireballs at you, to avoid them you can just run away or dash away using
. One strategy to get her out of the air is to throw a dormant bomb growth (press
to grab one) at her mouth with aim mode (
) while she is about to shoot a fireball, this will cause the growth to explode causing her to fall. Another way is to throw the dormant bomb wherever in her body and then using the Crossblade, press and hold
to multi target a lit torch and then the growth, then release the Crossblade using
to blow up the growth also causing her to fall to the ground. Now Combo her while she is stunned and when she gets up back away. Now she will use another attack which she swoops down and slides her claws on the ground across the platform trying to slice you. Simply dash (
) to the sides and repeat the above process. When she finally stops flying and lands, she will destroy all the bomb growths. Now keep throwing the Crossblade at her to deplete her health a bit, she will start shooting fireballs at you, throw the Crossblade right as she charges them to stun her. Tihs will cause her to jump into the air and close her wings which when she lands she will cause an explosion so dash away from her fast or keep a far distance to avoid the impact. Periodically she will start to charge you. Quickly spam
when it pops up to punch her in the face twice causing her to get stunned. Now dash to her and combo her like crazy, she will get up eventually then you back away a bit. Also if you go for close hits she will try to hit you with her claw so just jump over it. Repeat the ground process until a cutscene starts, War now kills her.
After you have placed the third and final blade into the angel statues, the platform will rise into the courtyard opening the final door which leads to the final fight of the cathedral against the Bat Queen Tiamat.

Defeat The Griever
The Griever is a simple boss fight. You start off in her lair but destroy all the blue ice walls with the Tremor Gauntlet as fast as possible before and at the start of the fight. She will charge a fire beam and lock on to you so make sure to jump over it or dash away. If you hide behind an ice wall, she will start burning it causing it to become unbreakable for a short time so make sure to stay in the open dodging her fire beam then when she stops shooting it, break the rest of the ice walls. Now Grab the train (
near its back side) once the tracks are clear of the ice walls and then press and hold
to power punch the train cart into her stomache. She will hit it back to you so don't move from your position and quickly do it again to stun her.

Once she stops power punch the cart into her again. Now run up to her stomache and use the Tremor Gauntlet to break open the crystal on her belly. Once opened, combo it down with your main weapons.

to remount Ruin. After killing all the baby worms, The Stygian will enter the fray again. He will charge out of the ground periodically in a vertical manner. Then he will start chasing you again, keep shooting its mouth with Mercy to weaken it. Repeat the process a few more times until The Stygian falls on its belly allowing you to run up to him and press
to Instant Kill him.

One Mean Mother
This fight is somewhat easy. Silitha starts off the fight standing at the back of the room, use the Abyssal Chain (
) to latch onto her and start comboing her in the air. She will now teleport three times and try to crush you by landing on you. Quickly dash away (
) and start comboing her as she lands. She will continue to try and crush you so repeat the process until she stops and stands at the back of the room again. Now latch onto her again using the chain and start comboing her. Eventually she will start slashing you once she teleports over you and lands so dash away and strike her a bit before she teleports again. This process can take awhile so find a good time to unleash Chaos Form and combo her down. Once you inflict enough damage she will jump to the ceiling and hang there. Chain points will spawn around her, latch onto one with the Abyssal Chain and then latch onto her. Now War will make her fall and finish her off in a cutscene.

Payback's A B****
Defeat Straga This encounter is not to be confused with the Straga fight in the beginning of the game, this one is towards the end.
This fight is surprisingly easy for being the boss before the final boss. You start off the fight in a room with two portal doors on the floor on the left and right side. Decide which one you want to activate with the Voidwalker. Then wait for Straga to raise his mace, notice the mace has a portal door on it. Now when you get the chance to activate it, do so. Just wait until he has the mace still for a bit to give you enough time to activate it. Now when Straga puts the mace behind his head, he is about to smash you. RUN THROUGH THE PORTAL NOW to get to his backside, now press
to weaken him. You will land in front of his face so just combo his face a few times until he gets up. Now he will spawn a slew of skeletal soldiers (Undead Lords), kill them off. Also while you fight them, he will occasionally smash you with his fist while fighting the demons. Just side dash as fast as possible to avoid it. Hewill also charge his mace and swing at you, to avoid it you have to run out of its radius, otherwise it will hit you. Now he will lift his mace agin so repeat the portal process to get to the back of him. Once you have pressed
behind him for a second time he will weaken again and you must combo his face. Now he will summon blue fallen angels. Kill them off and repeat the tactics to avoid his attacks. Once they are all killed, repeat the protal process one more time to get to his backside and press

Defeat the Destroyer The Shattered Throne-

away from the charge now turn around and run towards The Destroyer's legs and hit it with the Armageddon Blade to make The Destroyer fall onto the ground and be stunned. Now run towards him and mount off of Ruin when he is laying on the ground and combo his body and/or face until he gets up. If you swing too early while being charged by The Destroyer, he will dismount you and you must remount Ruin and try the above process again. After comboing The Destroyer, he wil eventually get up and fly into the air shooting some fireballs so just run around on Ruin dodging them and then dash
because The Destroyer will dive and slam onto the ground near or on top of you. Now run to The Destroyer's legs and hit them again to trip and stun him. Now combo him down until he gets up. This process must be done about five or six times to finally have War get off Ruin and press
when it shows on top of The Destroyer's head. After pressing
when prompted War will mount onto The Destroyer and he will fly up, now you must press

Below is a video showing a great farming spot for this trophy.
Kill 5 duskbats without touching the ground

, after it is killed jump in mid-air to another one pressing
. Jump and spam
in mid-air near duskwings to ensure you don't touch the ground before Insta Killing 5 duskwings.
Kill 150 enemies with items from the environment
This trophy can be a pain for some. Simply use any environmental objects on your journey and use it on weak enemies. A good way to guarantee an environmental kill is to combo your enemies until they show a
on top of their heads. Now their one hit away from death so grab an environmental object and kill them with it. Another good way for this trophy is during the beginning of the game when Vulgrim asks you to collect 500 souls, simply kill all the Wicked with environmental objects, now save the game and quit to main menu, then reload and the objects will respawn. Do this a few times to guarantee the objects respawning. If you do this anyother time after, the objects won't all respawn, only very few.
