After unlocking the second area of the Forest, you will get to go on the rocky path but get interrupted by the Stone. You will have to solve a little puzzle of stone to move him out of the way.

After that, you need to follow her by Shooting the Arrows through the Old Gods’ Symbols. Once you are down on the ground, follow her on the path to reach an area with a Giant Tree in the middle. There will also be a shrine before the area so, interact with the Shrine to save the progress and go into the area in front to start the boss fight.
How to Defeat Shade of Slavitza
Shade of Slavitza is an afraid Lost Spirit who will run around in the boss fight and it is almost impossible to hit her with the arrows while she is running around. However, the Lost Spirit can be lured by taking down the Boboks. Boboks are enigmatic creatures who have eyes and ears all over the forest so you might have seen them in your journey before and the Lost Spirit has the habit to mourn on them when they are shot down.
There will be several Boboks in the area with shining eyes. Instead of shooting Slavitza, shoot down Boboks one at a time. Every Bobok you take down will stop Slavitza at its position. When Slavitza stops, hit her with the charged shots to deal damage to her. Once you have depleted almost half of her health, Slavitza will get inside of a giant tree and take control of it. she will strike down the Branches of the Tree at your position.
The Branches can be easily dodged by using the dodge ability as well as just moving out of the way. When she attacks with branches, you will see a purple fog in the air. It indicates the position where the branches will strike. Get out of under the fog to dodge the attack and you will see Glowing Eyes on the branches when they strike down. It will take a few moments before they go up again. You need to shoot at the Glowing Eyes to deal damage to Slavitza. Shoot at all of the Glowing Eyes to deal maximum amount of damage.
As you strike down the Glowing Eyes, the tree will begin to release the poisonous gas that will deal damage to you overtime. So, move away from the gas and hide behind one of the rocks in the area to dodge the poisonous gas attack. It will repeat the attacks so, after taking down the eyes on the branches that strikes on the ground. Look up to see more eyes on other branches. You will have to hold down the aim for ranged attacks. Shoot the eyes one by one to deplete Slavitza’s HP. After you have taken down the eyes on the branch, she will release the blue creatures from the sky which drops crystal when they die.
So, when it shoots the creatures on the ground, take cover to dodge the attack and then take out the creatures by shooting arrow or just by dashing into them. Take down the rest of the Golden Eyes on the roots to kill Shade of Slavitza which will reveal another story section.
