Attack Patterns

  • Melee thrusting attack. Breaks guards of low hit res shields. Will hit the player even if standing at the side or back of the spear.
  • Spear throw. Very good tracking, thus requires rolling, sprinting or shield block to avoid.


These enemies are the ones from 1-1 Phalanx demon boss. They have a shield on their front-side, and a long spear which they either thrust or throw, depending on range. IF it's possible to hit their backside via rolling or circling, they are a quick kill. If they're in a tight corridor however, hacking away, hacking away + turpentine, or firebombs all work quite well. From the front they will obviously take less damage; their attacks are capable of being blocked, so always raise that shield when near! If you start your player off as the Royalty class, then you'll have a much easier time killing these guys. Just spam Soul Arrow at them until they're dead.
