Attack Patterns

  • Lunging Rapier strike for heavy damage. Especially in higher game cycles.
  • Fire long range Crossbow bolts


These guys like to hide in the shadows, either flapping overhead in the darkness, or pretending to be a statue. Look for their glowing eyes. Most come equipped with swords, though you will run into the occasional crossbow wielder. They look really big and scary, but are actually not that tough. They aren't that fast when it comes to attacking. So get some hits on them, or block their attacks. An easy way to do this is just with a spear and a large sheild. Since they like to backup a lot after attacks it's easy to maintain your stamina, even while fighting several of them.

Ranged players can simply attack them multiple times.
