Owl Doctor is easily attacked from behind and these attacks will deal a lot of damage. The easiest way of getting behind him, is dodging when he attacks.
If you are at a distance from the doctor, and use a Pulse Cell or any other consumable, he will most likely throw a dagger at you. Sometimes, this attack is signalized in advance with an animation where the boss tosses the weapon - after he catches it, the projectile is sent your way. When it comes to combat tactics, we recommend perfect blocks to charge groggy bar.
