The absorption numbers are the % of your damage that gets blocked. For example if an absorption is 60. 40% of that damage by that type will go through and 60% is absorbed. Bigger number= less damage. An absorption of 100 means no damage goes through, and a resistance of -100 mean the enemy takes 2x damage from that source. 0 means damage goes pretty much as is.
The resistance numbers is the buildup amount to trigger it. For example if a resistance is 100 you must deal 100 points of whatever aux buildup to trigger it. Note that these go down over time, and increase each time the effect procs.

Fia's Champions Fight Strategy
The Best Tips for Fia's Champions:
- Use Ash Summons with grabs like Finlay, since all Champions are NPCs that can be grabbed.
- Use the spell with Area of Effect (like Agheel's Flame)
- Build up resistance to Magic damage.
- Bring Rejuvenating Boluses Item
- During 3rd wave, eliminate champions as soon as possible - Lionel is a serious threat on his own.
The first two waves should be easy and you can take your time to defeat then without wasting any resources, the last wave is more intense and it may be advised to Summon a Spirit Ally during the third wave to get more room to fight against them. Try to align then so you always attack one at a time and be aware of the space, as the arena becomes much smaller when the invasion begins. Always focus on the most aggresive invader.
Magic and Ranged Users
It's important not to waste too many resources in the first 2 waves, as the third wave will get more problematic with three enemies attacking you at once. These enemies generally dodge ranged attacks while getting closer to you. It's advised to focus al your damage to one invader at once, until they are defeated and then attack the next one. Because 3 attackers may not leave too much room to attack or move between attacks. Try to spread them apart.
Fia's Champions Attacks & Counters
|Fia's Champion||Almost every champion is a melee fighter, and you can identify their fighting style by looking at their gear. They all generally dodge magical ranged attacks.||Their range, their speed and timing can be easily measured by identifying their weapon and gear. Be aware of your space and avoid getting cornered as they move straight forward at you.|
Rogier uses his signature rapier, with the Glintblade Phalanx skill. His spells include Magic Downpour, Glintstone Pebble, and Scholar’s Armament. He tends to either rush you or stay back and cast spells.
|Engage against him with heavy attacks, stunning and staggering him. You can defeat him before he's able to cast his first spell.|
|Lionel the Lionhearted||Lionel wields the Great Èpèe, along with a staff used to cast Rancorcall, summoning five homing skulls, and Fia’s Mist, creating a pestilent mist that builds up Death Blight.||It's not wise to engage against Lionel first, but you have to always be aware of him. Interrupt your own combos against other enemies to get safe from Lionel's attack if necesary. Focus first on the most aggresive Invaders dodging and avoid Lionel, and then focus on Lionel last.|
Fia's Champions Lore, Notes & Other Trivia
- Some of these Invaders are met previously throughout the game as friendly NPCs, Rogier and Lionel. The randomized champions are likely the many players that were hugged by Fia, or those who possess a Radiant Baldachin’s Blessing in their inventory.
- Just like Mimic Tear, Fia's champion is a boss that can die not from player direct hit (f.e by using Bloody Slash Ash of War)
