How to Beat Sentient
Sentient Boss Guide:
Depending on the storyline you'll face Sentient or Sentient and Prodigal Spawn. (You can check Endings for more information).
If you are facing both of them its best to deal with the Prodigal Spawn first and then defeat Sentient. Try to stay as far away as Sentient as you can and fight the Prodigal Spawn alone. Sentient will still be able to perform most of his attacks but you'll have to worry less about it. Once you defeat the Prodigal Spawn, head towards Sentient.
Sentient has five giant cubes floating around him that will periodically fire projectiles at you. Each of them deal a different kind of elemental damage. Each orb dies in one hit
He has a very large array of attacks and deal different damage. Some of his attacks will reach you wherever you are so there's no point in staying away.
The best strategy is to stay below him and attack him while you run in circles. Take a couple of hits and then run in circles while you use your weapon.
When he teleports, follow him to the new location. Some of his attacks can one-shoot you if you don't have high HP and Elemental resistances, so keep an eye on each attack.
Remember that your dodge will allow you to become invulnerable for a second, so if you time it right, you'll be able to avoid all of his attacks.
