    • if you run around the north side of the field hugging the cliff you can fight the golem without aggroing maleigh. alternatively, you can lure maleigh out of the golem's wake-up range toward the swamp area by hitting him with an arrow from far away

        Marais = swamp in French. In the French version the Marais are called the Tourbier, which means a person who works to extract peat (= tourbe in French). I guess it's quite fitting.

          this character is a reference to elric of melnibone and the executioner gs is a ref to the ds3 weapon of the same name but at the same time a reference to stormbringer

            There is a minor bug with Maleigh. If you die to the golem (or the Scarlet Rot) PRIOR to him completely fading into dust, you won't be given any of his drops/they won't appear where he died when you respawn. And, like any other NPC Invader, he doesn't respawn either. So there's about a 3-5 second window in which you can accidently screw up, and then have to wait until NG+ to try again. I learned this the hard way on my second character's first run through. Highly annoying as having two of these by the time you start NG+2 makes many bosses just flat evaporate from the triple-stacked debuffs. And yes, they really are nasty when used by PVP gank squads.

              I wonder if their father is the person on the prosthesis heirloom alongside Malenia. Maybe that’s why the sons of House Malaigh were all sickly born

              • Anonymous

                I kinda like his lore, he and/or his family is cursed they are infested with a poison like malenia with rot.
                Thats why he came to like and support her, making the prostethics for her and her knights. But then he lost it all and kinda went mad

                  Inside the poison castle (we know that's his castle) we can find a lot of statues. Perhaps the "famed sculptor of the Erdtree Capital" that created marika/radagon stature could be him or maybe someone of his family. I mean someone there was clearly good at making statures for sure, i don't think anywhere else we can see that many in one place and we know that his family serve the golden order, makes sense to me.

                    He no longer invades if you clear shaded castle before fighting him. Luckily I already defeated him on my 1st playthrough.

                    • Shoot him with an arrow so you don't aggro the Golem.
                      When outside of melee range, he slowly circles you. Throw volcano pots, and he'll stand in them taking damage.

                        "...Maleigh Marais has been obsessed over his “goddess,” leading him to devote his efforts to worshipping her, even wielding a weapon capable of inflicting Scarlet Rot."
                        Now that's what I call a simp!

                          Crystal darts have a special property that they can enrage constructs after a few hits. This includes golems. Hit him with about 5 darts (cheap to craft) and he'll start attacking Maleigh instead of you.

                            Lure him out of the arena and throw charged fireballs from horseback. Done right, he dies pretty damn quick. Also, his rapier deals Scarlet Rot so try not to get hit.

                            • I didn't even notice this guy was there until half way through the giant fight and suddenly there was another healthbar. Turns out I was hitting him on accident.

                                This guy got his butt kicked by my man Elemer, that's why he's crying alone in a field of broken statues

                                  Not that difficult of a fight, though you need to pull him away from the big golem sentry, because fighting both at the same time is tricky.

                                    It’s funny to me that everyone thinks this guy’s a chick when the rapier clearly refers to Maleigh as a dude.

                                      I have tried 7 different times to get to this NPC Invader and each time I encroach on the trigger, my game crashes, PC variation as of today's date and time.

                                        I can't get her to spawn, maybe is it because I'm too far into the story? I beat the final boss and am looking for all the content that I missed

                                          I believe this is the gal that spawns as you are fighting the giant enemy west of Shaded Castle. I thought she spawned because I was hitting the giant enemy, but maybe its just two seperate encounters.

                                          • I checked for this NPC before and after clearing the Shaded Castle. Maleigh Marais wasn't there before, but after I cleared the castle. Perhaps either entering or clearing the castle is the trigger for spawning them.

                                              I can't find Maleigh Marais anywhere next to the Shaded Castle. Is he part of a story line, or how do I trigger him?
