There’s one overlooking a cliff, and using the fully charged Ancient Lighting Spear from the Bolt of Gransax sent him over the edge, made quick work of him. Just gotta go a long way around to gather the stuff where he died.
I usually don't get surprised by anything in this game, but i just recently saw these guys' grab attack for the first time, which honestly really caught me off guard. Definitely one of the cooler non-boss moves i've seen so far
Axe wielding one is easy from atop of the building with ladders on it . A few rot arrow and done.
I'd think it'd make more sense if these dudes were in Caelid, considering how scarlet rot is nowhere to be seen in the snowfields.
All his drops, drop, only once.
By the by. Why does this enemy only have 3/4 pieces of equipment? So annoying that he doesn't have any gloves for a full-set. They really need to sort that kind of thing out.
I'd rather fight two of them at once than traversing that whole Snowfield catacomb.
Can he drop it multiple times or once per run?
He’s gonna catch a cold in that clothing.
The one with the Greataxe has a right hook bash after you attack that is physically impossible to dodge which is lame since even daggers don't recover in time before he executes it. Doesn't hurt a lot but super obnoxious if you plan to use bubble or any 100% HP buff talisman. Also uses a shout effect that boosts its resistance to bleed and probably other boosts be warned and don't take unnecessary risks thinking it will work.
The one in the Consecrated Snowfields is very useful because of the aggro hat. You can put it on, summon your Mimic, take it off and be absolutely sure you won't get aggro as long as your Mimic lives, which honestly is a great benefit in duo or trio boss fights.
He is IMMEDIATELY west northwest of Ordina. Before the river.
Where the hell is he? All I find is a runebear.
