  • List of absorptions in order: Standard Negation, Slash Negation, Strike Negation, Pierce Negation, Magic Negation, Fire Negation, Lightning Negation, Holy Negation
  • Fia's Champion #1 25.677 26.821 23.328 26.032 19.677 21.046 -5.319 22.114

  • Lionel the Lionhearted 33.563 36.47 31.568 37.278 26.501 28.989 7.004
  • Fia's Champion #2 27.286 28.765 24.229 27.968 21.202 22.961 -1.108 21.73

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.

Resistances:

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 the ?? Ash Summons
  • 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.

 

Melee Users

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

Attacker Description Counter
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. 
Sorcerer Rogier

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 who 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)

      Has anyone else noticed that in the offline boss fight, there is a godskin apostle cosplayer in the third wave? And it gets weirder. They use a heater shield and carian staff, exclusively spamming carian slicer. But somehow they are able to use QUICKSTEP? How is that even possible, considering neither the staff nor shield allow quickstep!

        After fighting this boss I see that a lot, and I mean a LOT, of Tarnished wander the Lands Between butt ass naked.

          This boss consists of three waves:
          1. Against a lone NPC generated based off of a real player's build
          2. Against Sorcerer Rogier
          3. Against Lionel the Lionhearted and two player-build NPCs

          Rogier can be threatening at close range due to his rapier, but he is simple enough to deal with to not warrant special advice.

          The only opponent of serious consequence in this battle is Lionel. Lionel can cast Rancorcall to force you to run around in circles for long periods of time, dishes out incredible amounts of punishment with his heavy thrusting sword, and has tanky armor that can poise through the hits of most builds.
          The player-built NPCs die fast enough to not be serious threats on their own, so you should kill them first so you can focus on Lionel.

              How exactly is Fia summoning her simps to fight you? I wonder if it has something to do with the puppetry that the Nox developed and Seluvis dabbles in. They have the same blue hue that the soldiers in Carian manor do

                The third wave definitely involves player builds. I encountered one with raptor set+GS+lion's claw ash of war+fanged imp head. I bet with my left nut this is no npc build

                  So I've heard you can become one of the champions by doing Fia's questline. So is there a chance you encounter yourself when summoned to other people's worlds?

                    Would have been WAY cooler to fight the Prince of Death (somehow) in my opinion, and the secret Lichdragon fight is a bit of a letdown because it only uses one death lightning attack, all the rest of its attacks are just standard red lightning.

                              I saw some people speculating on how the player character champions are chosen so i would like to post my own take on it, i think they’re chosen from players with a radiant baldachin’s blessing in their inventory because thats when fia calls you her "true champion" it also makes more sense from a gameplay perspective (in my opinion) as it allows for the bosses to have more polished builds seeing as they would needed to have made it quite a bit into the game

                                So, some of the champions are based on player builds? Didn't notice that, mainly because they have more or less the same health of your PC, instead of 10.000 HP like the Great Jar summons

                                  At first I was overwhelmed by the 3v1 but you can honestly cheese them really easily if you land a jump attack, run, and repeat. They're pretty squishy.

                                                  feels like this should have been a halflight pvp situation. something like, if you chose Fia's ending you get a special item in NG+ that enters you into a pvp pool to be summoned for this boss fight. balance is always an issue for something like this, so you kinda have to make the boss player way underpowered, but i really liked the concept of giving them special items that can only be used as boss invader. wish they woulda had the balls to explore that concept further here.

One of the champions with lionel that my friend had was wearing stuff that I used to wear, (pumpkin helmet and some fur armor) and conversely one of my champions with lionel was wearing stuff that he wore. The weapons that those champions used were not alike other than the stat theme (I used a greatsword while my champion in his game used dual greataxes, while he uses a spear and his champion in my game used dual whips). Now if it does loosely base some champions on people you've encountered in your travels that's pretty awesome.

                                                            If your last fight is against mainly melee users, it makes the fight a lot easier. There are some stones you've probably picked up along the way that use gravity magic to attack in a fan-shape. At least on my strength focused character, this *destroys* the npcs. They don't really have any good way to dodge the attack, and 2-3 of them will get hit at once. Since they don't really learn, you can literally just repeat this until they die, backing up if they get too close. For the casting NPCs, grab something like a shield with Carian Retaliation or golden retaliation, and you can hit them for pretty substantial damage.

                                                              I'm really curious if anyone else had one of Fia's Champions during the battle with Lionel who was using a VERY similar build to themselves.

                                                              I couldn't tell if one of Fia's Champions was using the build I had when I last hugged her. Despite having similar armor and shield, it was using a Death spell I don't have… but that fits the theme. I figure it might just be another player or coincidence. Either way, I'm betting that it grabs your stats when you receive or use the Baldachin's Blessing, which is why there's only one you can have at a time.

                                                              Especially given that we know Lionel lay with her in Leyndell, and Rogier met with her at the Roundtable hold, it would make sense. D's soul is still alive in his brother who arrived later, so he wouldn't arrive even though you see her beside him as he dies. It seems like a possibility it's linked to when you receive a Baldachin's Blessing that it might create a mimic from you at that stage, since you give her 5% of your HP when you do, and it's the same way that she takes the last of the life of those she lays with and why she can summon them here.

                                                              I figure you can probably test it by trying to wear something absurdly odd and identifiable whenever you embrace her at the Roundtable Hold, and something else when you use the item, and see if either shows up in the fight later during phase 3.

                                                              Even if it's for someone else's world, it'd be an amusing way to influence somebody fight if not your own.

                                                                  A minute of silence for the invader side who have it far harder in general.

                                                                  • I'm pretty sure that, much like the Great Jar summons, these are other players. The ones I fought today all had "meta" builds. But they were seemingly low-level, I suspect it's pulling from players that Fia hugged.
                                                                    This would fit with Rogier being one of the champions since we know he, uh "lay" with Fia from time to time.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                            • I fought Rogier here and I thought he's a regular NPC for this fight. By the way I'm happy we are just fighting the red spirits and not that giant arse gross rotten piece of flesh so called "Prince of Death". I totally thought I'm going to fight it when I go inside the lake, would have puked myself to death before it kills me because it looks so damn terrific. And that giant f**king bloated face is just disgusting.

                                                                              • Anonymous

I used Greatshield Soldiers and they made fights 1 and 2 very very easy, and they made fight 3 possible when I put myself on the other side of the mob. Also, in wave 3 the unnamed Champions have significantly less health than Lionel but equal amounts of damage. Highly recommend you nuke them first. Some of the randomised NPCs are easier than others though.
