Misbegotten Warrior fights alongside Perfumer Tricia, and upon defeat, yields Perfumer Tricia Ashes. When fought alongside Crucible Knight, it will yield the Ruins Greatsword.



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.

Misbegotten Warrior Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Misbegotten Warrior:


Melee Users

This enemy may be faced alongside another boss, so its best to fit in as many hits as much as possible. Be aggressive with your attacks and deal stance damage to get a stagger in order to maximize damage. Jump attacks on it will also work with this strategy and may result in a successful crit attack. Keep trying to circle behind him to get a clear shot for your attacks whenever it takes a brief pause between its actions. This will also take you out of its line of sight for some of its forward attacks. If you're having a difficult time, put a Scarlet Rot debuff on him or use a spirit summon so that its attack is not completely focused on you. You can also try to parry its attacks and land a frontal stab if your parry game is good.


Magic and Ranged Users

 To quickly defeat this boss, be aggressive on your attacks while continuously moving back and around it forcing it to turn and approach to attack. If near, you can perform a jump attack to stagger it or break its guard for a crit attack. This will quickly deplete its HP, and if facing two bosses at the same time, may give you a chance to completely defeat the Misbegotten Warrior before the second boss encounter. 


Misbegotten Warrior Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
Melee Combo A combination of sword swings and slashes. Most common of these is its double melee swing.  Roll through the Melee swing or step back away from damage range.
Leap Stab This attack begins with a leap and follows through with a melee strike. For this move, roll backwards then follow up with an attack.
Sword Smash The enemy takes a large leap before landing and smashing the sword on the ground. Run out of the enemy landing space or roll forward (into the enemy) and counter attack after the landing.
Roar Has an attack where its roar sends radial waves in front of it. Step out of the effect range to avoid damage.
Claw Slash This attack can occur as a double combo where the enemy makes two striking motions back to back. This action can be dealt in a combo so keep rolling back until the combo is finished before delivering an attack of your own.

      I hate this mob with every fiber of my soul. Fast af attacks, hits like a truck, true combos with built-in roll catches, criminal levels of mobility… Fromsoft really sucked this thing off when they created it.

        Anyone know the spawns of the non boss version ? trying to farm the sword after the erdtree burn so don't have the leyndell spawn

          For reasons beyond my mortal understanding I've managed to fight the duo in Redmane Castle one by one - misbegotten rushed to me while knight just stayed back and chilled until I finished slicing that furry. Maybe Chadahn's honor rubbed on him a bit.

            Instantly determines your move withina nanosecond of you pressing the button. Gives you as much chance of playing Psycho Mantis in Metal Gear Solid without Port 2.

              Damn poor bastard has no poise whatsoever, like you can stunlock him with everything except for maybe knives, but who knows

              • Anonymous

                If you're willing to wait until you've reached Mohg's area (so bypass this fight once the Radahn Festival starts), get the swarm of flies spell from that part of the underground. If you have mimic tear, so much the better. Setup whatever is your preference to cast spells, even just a few of them, as your 1st weapon L or R, and then your melee for 2nd slot L or R, just remember to have the Flies spell in the ready to cast slot. If you have the mimc tear, they'll start spam casting it. If its both of you, it melts both the Misbegotten & the Crucible Knight. If its just you, I suggest any katana with Unsheathe or Gisca's Wheel, as the katana almost always breaks the poise of the Misbegotten. Then after its dead, spam the flies on the Crucible. Usually takes only a few casts for it to die.

                  There’s another one in Leyndell right before the lift that takes you to the seal that opens after killing Morgott

                    Cool miniboss by themselves. Just not very fun once poisemonster Crucible Knight comes in for the assist.
                    Although for lore reasons it makes sense why a Crucible Knight would fly in to protect a Misbegotten, the fight is really tough.

                      Flame of the redmanes hurts him bad. 2 to open him for a riposte, 3 reposte (plus damage from flame itself) to kill (with my setup, +8 rogiers flame rapier) Killed misbegotten before the Kn***t was able to walk over to me.

                        There's another one in the Haligtree.....and you can't really get any distance on that one. I have decided I will rot this one.

                          At the Redmane Plaza, save yourself the trouble and just use spirits...It'll be a two on two fight; that's as fair as any. You'll probably have won one-on-one against them separately at this point, so there's no shame in it. Mine was +6Lone Wolves. I intended just to burst Misbegotten quickly and then go 1-1 with Crucible Knight, but my wolves ended up surviving so I went with the flow and beat them just like that. I felt more relieved by the time saved than anything; most of all because I'm not even gonna use their drop.

                            I tested sleep on the Misbegotten Warrior in Redmane Castle. With St. Trina's Torch, while being aggressive with it, I got the sleep status to proc with roughly 6 light attacks. However, the Misbegotten Beast 'wakes' from it in about a second. Before it even lays on the ground. Sleep is not useful here to get a one-by-one fight.

                              Did anyone else attempt this fight at redmane, leave, come back some levels later, and no longer have it available? The courtyard was open with all the NPCs for the star festival and I fought radhan. Just came back at lvl 144 and the fog wall was up again. +10 Oleg solos both.

                                It's one thing to fight a bullshit anime boss, but fighting 2 at the same time is bullshit squared. Thankfully like his earlier counterpart, he doesn't have much posture. With a flail and Flaming Strike Ash of War, it becomes easy to stagger with this combo; counter-->heavy jump attack-->WA. Even the flames will interrupt him easy, so using this combo will break his posture and make short work of him. Even if you can't kill him before the Crucible Knight comes, this strat will get him down to 25% health with a +2 flail, and you can just chip away at him while kiting the other. After you defeat the Misbegotten Warrior, just parry the Crucible Knight to death for the win.

                                    First two playthroughs I had a weapon that easily staggered it and didn't have to deal with the TWO roll-catch timed combos. If you are not in the right spot when these come out, you will be roll caught, the claw one does little damage, but the two back-to-back swipes the second swipe does almost as much damage as his one big swipe and will roll catch you if you are too close when he initiates the attack. Aside from spacing I don't know how to consistently dodge this attack, and only beat him after getting good rng and only two roll catch combos came out.

                                      You also fight two of these as a normal enemy in Leyndell. Located on the path leading up to the Forbidden Lands. I wonder if they can drop there sword or anything else if someone can confirm.

                                        Can be bled. Can be rot. Can probably also be poisoned.

                                        In this + Cruicible Knight fight one possible tactic is jellyfish to poison it and rot it at start, if Jellyfish can indeed poison it. Jellyfish is tanky. The two DoTs will help you start bursting it down and if you can stagger it you can critical and maybe finish it before Crucible or shortly after. At worst you can run around like a chicken until DoTs finish this boss. Jellyfish can then poison Cruicible which is vulnerable to poison, unlike Rot and Bleed to further assist. Other options are a strong DPS spirit ash, or Fanged Imps in a bleed build to burst it down ASAP, or something stagger heavy like da bois, aka Demi-Humans, while you do as much DPS as possible.

                                          Can be parried, at least all sword attacks that aren't charged after the shout. the jumping attacks needs more testing.

                                            Be careful when using spirits. Even when helping in dishing in damage this boss seems to prioritise you. So even if it's getting wrecked, it will stop at nothing to make sure it kills you first. Trust me. I know.

                                              Assuming the Wiki updaters already know of this but thought I might as well mention it this boss shows up as a combo fight with the crucible knight at the festival grounds if none of the triggers for the festival have been activated. Also not sure if this boss makes a return after the festival (assume it doesn't) I made the mistake of going off and doing other things instead of defeating it and triggered the festival via Rennas quest which I now guess after defeating Radahn will leave the festival grounds without this boss making the duo fight miss able.

                                                The boss fight before Radahn where you fight this guy, and a crucible knight..... They never showed up for me, why is that? I keep seeing streamers fight this duo, but there was never a fog wall for me, just right into the celebration.
