5. Scrapped Watchman
We begin today's list of the best bosses in Lies of P, Ranked we have the Scrapped Watchman. Serving as the player's first true test of what's to come later in the game, this boss offers players the first real challenge. In doing so, players will have to pay great attention to the boss's movements. This will ensure that players are only going to be taking a minimal amount of damage in the fight. From a mechanical standpoint, this boss fight doesn't exactly blow you away, but it can absolutely leave you sulking at the death screen if you don't respect the Watchman's damage.
After the player is able to whittle down the Watchman's health, they will enter a second phase, in which their bodies will become electrified. This will make it exceedingly difficult to strike your opponent. This is where the fight's encouragement of parrying comes in. The parry system within Lies of P greatly rewards player timing.
