These harrowing foes are encountered in the dark and dirty underground catacombs of the normally pristine Ancient Cistern. They will rise out of the ground, usually in large groups.

How to Defeat

You’ll struggle to defeat them with a regular sword, unless the fatal blow is used. Until you receive a more powerful sword or use one of Koloktos’ swords, it is better to simply avoid them.

If you must fight them, perform a spin attack to knock them down. Then follow up with a fatal blow. Since they typically appear in groups, it’ll take a while to fatal blow all of them. But it’s way faster than using normal attacks.

Also, showing it the (or an upgrade of) the Sacred Shield sort of scares it.
