Fighting at mid to long range.
Taking on King Allant at mid range is recommended to give you time to avoid his Soul Drain attack while giving you good chances to retaliate when he is vulnerable. When his left hand starts to glow, dodge to his side or run away from him to avoid losing a Soul Level if it connects. You can get in up to two good hits before he recovers from the attack.
Another good opportunity to attack King Allant is after he does his downward sword slash with both hands that sends out a wave in front of him. It has quite a long wind up, allowing you to simply strafe to his side and attack him until he finishes the entire animation of the move.
Alternatively, you can stay at long range and bait out his sword rush. The timing to avoid it is quite easy to grasp and gives you enough time to land two hits and back away again. He will also occasionally throw out sword waves that can be blocked with a shield. This strategy also completely removes the threat of his Soul Drain attack.
Interrupting the Area-of-Effect (AoE) attack
When you see King Allant point his sword down to the ground, run up to him and pummel him to cancel his AoE attack which has very good range and damage.
Imbuing your weapon with fire lets you stack more damage per hit against King Allant. Make sure to stock up on them before taking on the boss.
Eternal Warrior’s Ring
You will need to do a lot of dodging against King Allant in addition to throwing melee attacks of your own. Using the Eternal Warrior’s Ring obtained by defeating Old King Doran grants you better stamina regeneration for this fight.
