Fire resistance.

Using equipment that grants good fire resistance allows you to mitigate damage from Flamelurker’s fireblasts. Good options include the Binded Cross armor set, Purple Flame Shield, and Ring of Flame Resistance.

Stay at mid range.

For melee characters, it is recommended to fight the Flamelurker at mid range to give you time to roll away from his fireblast attacks. The wind-up of the move is noticeably longer than his normal swipes, so back away when you recognize it. When Flamelurker raises both arms in the air, he will do a fireblast attack that has significantly wider range.

After avoiding his fireblast, quickly move in to get in two good hits before going on the defensive again. Majority of the fight using melee weapons involves you taking advantage of his time to recover between the fireblasts and immediately withdrawing as he winds up for another move.

Magic damage

Flamelurker has one of the lowest magic defenses out of all the bosses in the game. Use Soul Arrow to pepper him with shots from afar is a viable strategy to defeat him, though you will want to bring Fresh Spices to recover MP when you run out. Alternatively, you can use the Crescent Falchion or apply your weapon with Stick White Stuff to deal magic damage when fighting him at melee range.
