There are two types of bosses that you can encounter as you travel to different realms, the following are:

Remnant From the Ashes Guide

Dungeon Boss – this type of boss is considered as a mini-boss which are superior, stronger versions of an elite enemy. Dungeon bosses have a high amount of health, a set of attacks, and have special passive or active abilities. To identify if you are about to enter an arena for a dungeon boss, you’ll find the entrance of the arena will be engulfed in fog and a checkpoint. Upon entering the arena, the battle will begin.

World Boss – World bosses are considered as the main bosses of the game, currently, there is no confirmation on how these bosses are encountered but it is safe to assume that these bosses may appear during an event or at the end of it, upon nearing the completion of a realm.

Dynamic Generation
Dynamic Generation will be applied to bosses. Whenever a player enters a realm, the game dynamically generates a unique layout for pretty much everything, from area layouts, loots will be randomly scattered, NPC locations, enemies, and of course the bosses. As mentioned, each boss has its own unique passive or active ability, and in conjunction with the dynamic generation mechanic, every time a player enters a realm and by chance encounters a boss they’ve already encountered, its abilities and stats also change, making each encounter a challenge.

How to Beat Canker

Canker is encountered in Mire Hollow on the optional planet of Corsus. The enemy inflicts Corrosion status effect, so best stock up on Greenleaf which can be acquired from the vendor at Ward 13. It will help you get rid of the effects of debuffs on armour effectiveness, as well as resist Corrosion attacks better.

This is kind of a rush-down boss who will charge at you while releasing mini-balls of poison. The most difficult move to counter is the wave attack which can only be avoided if you’re to the side of the arena. So make sure to leave the red water body as soon as the wave attack is initiated.

Helping Canker are the mini-versions of itself which are just a nuisance, more than anything else. Use a few bullets to get rid of them. At half it’s life, Canker will become more aggressive as it closes distance quickly and performs a variety of close-ranged slam attacks. It’s best to use shotguns at this stage while keeping the optimum distance from Canker to eliminate it.
