Bloodhound Knight Darriwil Fight Strategy
The Best Tips for Bloodhound Knight Darriwil:
- Keep your Shield up when not attacking as he moves very quickly
- Staunching Boluses can help prevent the Hemorrhage Status Effect
- Only attack once or twice when you have the opportunity or you will trade damage
This can be a rather difficult fight because the Bloodhound Knight is very aggressive and goes invisible when he moves. On top of this Blocking still builds up the Hemorrhage Status Effect which will all but kill you if it fills completely, so you need to avoid Blocking when you can to give your status bar time to reduce. You also cannot use Spirit Summons, so you're on your own.
What I've found works best is baiting his attacks when your Status bar is mostly clear, and Blocking one or two attacks before attacking, backing away and trying to dodge until your status bar clears, and then repeat. If you get into bad trouble you can use Staunching Boluses to relieve your build up, but they may be hard to use because he is so aggressive.
Magic and Ranged Strategy
Magic users can have an even harder time depending on the magic used because he tends to dodge many spells or moves so fast you cannot hit him. If you're using Incantations, Beast Claw works well, and if you're using Sorceries then I suggest Glintstone Pebble or Carian Piercer. He'll dodge Glintstone Pebble if he's just slowly walking some distance from you, but you can use it if he'd mid attack animation and you are at a safe distance. Carian Piercer works better because it hits harder, and he's almost always in melee range anyway.
