Attack Patterns

  • When it flies near a player, it will pull back and launch a large, gray spike. The spike has limited homing, so be wary that you'll still be hit if you move slowly. These attacks are preceded by a loud intake of air.

Strategy

These guys fly around the background looking like nothing more than graphical set-pieces. But once they get close to you they emit a weird sound and toss a giant barb at you. This can be blocked with your shield without much trouble. To kill them, get within close lock-on range and use arrows or spells. They don't have much HP. When they die they usually drop a Cloudstone. Try to kill them over solid ground when you can to claim your prize. Also, if you equip a Thief's Ring, they won't bother you at all, except for rare circumstances (on the ridge in 4-1 with the Gold Skeletons even with Thief's Ring on you can get bombarded by them so be wary). They get a little more alert in New Game+.

Note for 4-3: The Storm Beasts become berserkers of sorts here. Without a Thief's Ring equipped, they'll dash towards you in groups, firing volleys of barbs that will overwhelm your shield. Unless you are farming them with the Stormruler sword, you probably don't want them to bunch up like that. Advance very slowly and they will come at you one at a time. It is even possible to hit them with regular melee weapons in some circumstances.
