Elden Ring Bloodhound Knight Floh Guide

  • Like many red-eyed summons, he will not follow you, and will instead aggressively attack any enemy in his vicinity.
  • His name likely references certain geological epochs. In this case, the Floian period, the second stage of the Ordovician. He shares this trait with Darriwil, another named Bloodhound Knight, and the Crucible Knights Ordovis and Siluria.

      Love this guy. At first I swore I'd never go through another chariot dungeon, but I think the bloodhound knights are really cool, so I did it to get Floh. I got him to +10 so we're BFFs now. Maybe there are higher tier ashes that are better to use a +10 upgrade on, but none give me the same enjoyment as watching Floh skitter around on all fours. Sometimes I summon him in a low level area with lots of enemies just to watch him go ham. I think he likes the enrichment. Occasionally he can't find anyone to aggro onto and just sits in a corner while I die, but that's okay, he's still a pal. :)

          "Hey Floh I need you to help me kill the windmill village Godskin Apostle"

          "Nah fam there's an Albinauric in the gate town that owes me five bucks I'll brb"

            After playing with Floh for a while, I learned a lot about they way he should be used, namely in boss fights. You're supposed to treat him as you homie- you step in to get the boss off of him, and in return, when you need it, he'll be there to get the boss off of your back. On top of this, he also does really high stagger and bleed, so he has the potential to destroy just about anythingwhen the cards are all in place.

            However, if he's getting focused, he can't do that. And if you're getting focused, you can't put in much damage. As such, you're supposed to play together, taking turns doing your thing. If Floh gets his opponent to commit to a big move, that's your chance to dish out the pain. Otherwise, you want to be holding aggression so that way Floh can build up stagger and get that high-commitment move to happen.

            Proper setups, and you can stunlock certain bosses. Floh's big weakness is AoEs, so you have to be killing the boss before any of that happens. Since most bosses have one AoE or another, you're forced to play around it and make sure that never happens. If you back off and wait for Floh to get a big move, you'll lose him in seconds.

            Overall, I've found that Floh is deliberately designed to appeal to one playstyle, and one playstyle only- hyperaggression. If you're running with something like paired daggers, try him out. He'll only let you down if you let him down.

            (I also recommend the Turtle talisman and shield. Not necessary, but it sure helps and makes the tag-teaming more fun and snappy. Those two reduce your downtime on attacks, and as such directly increase the uptime both you and Floh can have.)

              Not a huge issue but the location of this spirit ash is not in the chest, it is dropped by the dungeon boss, Red Wolf of The Champion, the chest behind the boss contains a deathroot

                The strongest Spirit Ash in the game for killing non-boss mobs. It can decimate large groups while surviving and avoiding stunlock while putting out quick good AoE damage where Oleg and others tend to get stunlocked, deal slower overall damage, and struggle outside 1 vs 1 situations. Take it to the popular YouTube location for testing stuff, Gatefront Ruins where there are a large group of soldiers that will gank summons during a test. Unfortunately, it does not follow so the only way to get it to stay with you after it has killed everything it can find is if you go far enough it gets leash spawned to your location. It aggro very readily on anything nearby as long as it is within a certain distance, even if no line of sight.

                  I really want to like Floh more, but they're a tough sell over, say, Oleg who costs only 5 FP more and is super tanky, attacks rapidly with high stagger chance, and actually follows you around. Cool for flavor though, and Floh can actually apply Bleed which is cool, but he's relatively fragile compared to other named ashes.

                    • hands down the most infuriating piece of garbage summon in the game, you wanna have it follow you to the overworld boss?(ie ice dragon or glintstone dragon etc)? NOPE TOO BAD HE'S RUNNING A FULL ONE MINUTE AND 15 SECONDS AWAY TO AGGRO MOBS IN THE RUIN ON THE ENTIRE OTHER SIDE OF THE LAKE! maybeeeeeeeeeee he'll come back to hit the boss before it dies? oh look he killed a jellyfish.... and another... and another... LETS GO DUDE I SUMMONED YOU TO HELP WITH THE DRAGON! aaaand more runes from another jellyfish... and the dragon dies... and this idiot is still killing jellyfish. man i haven't been so annoyed in months.

                        This is my go to spirit. He does great damage and is pretty tanky, but the thing that's really nice is he is usually pretty quick at picking aggro back up after it switches off him. You do have to deal with him playing his own game though, but it can honestly be kinda fun just running around and blasting whatever he decides is gonna have a bad day not to mention he doesn't need you to follow him around for him to go after stuff. Dude has cleared many ruins while I'm just going through my inventory.

                          It pains my heart to say this but, this summon is kinda ass ngl. The bleed is all he’s really good for. Or maybe I just didn’t upgrade him enough and ditched this poor boy for mimic?

                            I love and hate this summon, he is excellent in combat, good DMG and the bloodhound step makes him very good at dealing DMG and staying alive, but the thing I hate about him is that he doesn't follow you. I know it kinda fits his lore (not serving any master) but stil,l I hope they make it so he follows you eventually.

                              Is it a bug that he has no AI if he doesn't detect any enemies? I mean like literally, if he's not attack smth, he's not moving. Kinda annoying when on some bosses you spawn him on entrance but the arena's size just makes him completely useless since the boss is 2far away for him to see.

                                    Absolutely monstrous.
                                    Cake very close to directly solo-ing the mini boss in let’s sell royal capital even though it’s immune to bleed!
                                    Because he hits hard then retreats, he’ll often jink around attacks even when he has aggro

                                      I cant summon this dude. I have enough FP and i have the summon icon appearing. It has a line over it showing i cant summon it but i can summon other spirits

                                        Incredibly good for drawing aggro. You summon and he rushes into action and is very aggressive. Teleports too.

                                          My +7 Floh practically soloed the double Cleanrot Knights in the Abandoned Cave. I only did about half an hp bar of damage to one of them with my character, then they just died b/c my spirit summon is insane, lol

                                          Don't sleep on this guy, everyone is talking about Lhutel and Omenkiller but Bloodhound Knight Floh is absolutely vicious

                                            He's a little dumb sometimes, but when he gets going he seems alright.
                                            Def not suitable for open world summoning cuz he doesn't follow you, and has to aggro on bosses. Probably not worth the effort compared to other summons.

                                              For some reason I can’t summon this guy anywhere.. Costs 95 FP while I have 125, so that’s not the issue. I can summon Mr. Jelly just fine.

                                              Am I missing something?
