Red Wolf of the Champion can be found by entering Gelmir Hero's Grave location. In first chariot hall player must fall of the ledge after passing archer skeleton to the right (go straight to the corner while falling to land on the ledge). After succesfully landing on wooden planks above secound chariot hall wait until chariot is below you and jump on it (preferably wait one cycle of chariots movement while he is going down, so it's easier to jump down on it). When chariot goes down the hall there will be a ladder on your right at the end (there are corpse with an item under the ladder so it's pretty easy to spot). Jump down while chariot starts going up again and as quickly as possible roll away from lava to a safe ground. After climbing the ladder it go to your right and then straight to the boss fog.

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.

Red Wolf of the Champion Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Red Wolf of the Champion:

  • Use the ?? Ash Summons
  • Use the ?? Spell
  • Bring ?? Item


Melee Users

The Red Wolf attacks rapidly with physical damage that can cause bleed buildup as well as magical attacks. In this small arena the Wolf is limited in how it can move, and the fight is easily dealt with by tank characters cornering the Wolf and attacking. Lighter builds should be prepared to dodge the magical blade attack and lunging attacks of the Wolf, but will be able to do significant damage quickly given the low health of the Wolf. 

Any Ash Summon that draws attention from the player and has reasonably high health will work here, as the fight will be over very quickly once the player is able to get a series of shots off.

Magic and Ranged Users

Magic User Melee Rush:

The wolf is strong against magic, and very fast. After many many deaths attempting to use magic, or just straight out rush him and dodge, I ended up stepping back and devising this strategy. I was able to take him down easily after my first trial run.

Weapon: Rosus' Axe-this baby scales on int, has an incredibly powerful special attack, and makes a good weapon for battle-mages

Shield: Use the highest poise shield you have available with NO special attack-so you can use your special attack button and automatically default to the axe's special. You're basically gonna hold your shield button the entire fight, and using your special will cancel guard, cast, and then immediately guard again.

Armor: Intelligence boosting armor to boost the base damage of your axe

Ashes: Skeletal Militia

Talismans: Winged Sword & Ritual Sword, boosting your attack with successive hits and at full HP

Items used immediately upon entering fog gate: Exalted Flesh & Flask of Wondrous Physik

Equip the above items, and eat the exalted Flesh immediately before or after entering the gate. Once you have entered the gate, summon your Militiamen and let them aggro the wolf. Once the wolf is focused on them, wait until he does a jump attack, and then run in behind him and spam the special attack of Rosus' Axe, Rosus' Summons, which does physical damage and scales with your new damage boosts. Thanks to your item and talisman damage boosts, within three to four hits from your special attack he should be dead. If he attacks you, try to stay directly under him, which is safe from many of his stationary attacks.

This strategy works for many larger bosses and can one shot red phantoms and most normal enemies, but be warned, it is INCREDIBLY easily dodged, requiring your enemy to occupy a very small conicular area pretty much directly in front of you for about one and a half seconds to charge the special while you stand there with your hands in the air like he-man. Only recommend for use against enemies with a gap between attacks.
