Bloodhound Knight Combat information

Negations (or Absorptions)

The negation numbers are the % of your damage that gets blocked. For example, if a negation is 60, 40% of that damage by that type will go through and 60% will be negated. Bigger number = less damage. A negation of 100 means no damage goes through, and a negation of -100 mean the enemy takes 2x damage from that source. 0 means damage goes pretty much as is.

Resistances

The resistance numbers are the buildup amount to trigger it. For example, if a resistance is 100 you must deal 100 points of the given buildup to trigger it. Note that these go down over time, and increase each time the effect procs. The values after the "/"s indicate the increased resistances after each successive proc.

      He staggers easily with your basic zwi guy. Between some big thwacks and the demi human ashes to corner and surround him, he’s still annoying (and i’d keep bolluses on hand) but very doable.

      • Anonymous

        Word of warning for those who follow this page's advice and summon the demi humans - they love to spend half the fight attacking the ****ing ice snails through the boss fog wall. Stupid demi human trash.

          Sorry you spent all your FP in that cave back there. Here's a dodgy quick buttrocket knight who can kill you with two hits AND bleed you! Have fun!

          • If they remain 'loyal for life' how did Darriwyl manage to betray his master? And why do they crawl on all fours? Are they some kind of lesser variant of a Shadow beast?

              If you’re looking for the NON-BOSS variants of this dude, look up “Lesser Bloodhound Knight.”
              That page has been updated with locations and drops as well.

                Wiki is incorrect: the Bloodhound Knight set does not drop from the one in volcano manor but from the one in Gelmir Hero's Grave.

                  There is on of them in Raya Lucaria Academy. From Main Academy Gate site of grace go towards isolated merchant, pass him and go to the gate of academy. He's hanging on top of the gate inside the instance of Academy. He will jump at you when approached close enough or you can shoot him down.

                  • I believe there is a respawning Bloodhound Knight on the road near the Isolated Merchant by the Raya Academy. Only fought him twice there so nothing to note if it drops anything.

                      Timed my special attack (Ash of war) bloody slash with a Lordsworn greatsword + 8. One hit takes like 1/4 th of his health pool.

                        Lakeside Crystal Cave Bloodhound Knight is glitch af. Summons cant be used like 40% of the time, and when they can, they either just stand in one spot, or run at the fog door. ****ing ridiculous.

                          I started off the battle by summoning my Clockwork Archers+3 spirit ash. I then basically rolled and dodged and maybe hit him with one or two Glinstone Pebbles. The Clockwork Archers just tore through him and took him down quickly, without much help from me.

                            As a melee build with power stancing 2 banished knight greatswords, it was quite easy. He has the same moveset as one of the other mini bosses in the early game, You can try baiting his teleport and 2 swings and attack right after once, and then reset to bait another teleport. Or, if you want to cheese him, roll dodge with shortbow works too. Since he's mostly on all fours, there is a high chance that the shots will land in his head. Will make the fight longer, but 200 arrows is more than enought to kill him few times over.

                                This guy is absolute cancer to my Zweihander build. Considering how fast his attacks and evasion are it seems a bit rough that he can poise straight through a colossal sword's jumping R2s.

                                  I jumped down and there is no way up only to face this boss. I was only 20 at that time. Had to say bye bye to my 20000 runes. Sad!

                                    This boss can be parried with the right timing, but with its fast motions and constant attacking it can be difficult. Much easier attacks to parry involve the knight to do a sweeping ground attack with either it's left (claw) or right (curved sword) hand weapon. To bait this attack out you do need to keep your distance. It also has a 4-hit combo that can be parried with the exception of the 4th his- which is a leaping downward attack. Another attack it does to close the distance is a leaping spin slash which can be parried, but is extremely difficult to time.

                                    More importantly: be patient, keep at it, and may you be blessed by grace.

                                      struggled with this dude. once i put on my heaviest shield, though, homeboy bounces off of it every time.
