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.

Sanguine Noble Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Sanguine Noble:

Melee Users

For melee users, be wary as the Sanguine Noble's swings are very fast, so it's recommended that you use a fast one-hand weapon like a straight sword or an axe. Every single type of attack this boss does stacks bleed so it's best that you bring Stanching Boluses. Do not rush this boss and be careful with its string of stabs and slashes. Also be wary of its stance where you see the dagger on its left hand being lifted, it means it's ready to parry your incoming attacks. Do not engage in melee when you see this stance, as it will most likely parry you successfully once you try to attack. A successful parry on you will get you stabbed and also build-up your bleed meter very quickly.

Magic and Ranged Users

For magic and ranged users, it's recommended that you equip a heavy hitting spell/incantation or weapon for ranged attacks to quickly finish the Sanguine Noble. Just be careful with the blood puddles and the dagger throw as those are also the boss' ranged options. You should also look out for the leaping thrust where it leaps forward and thrusts its sword, this move quickly closes the gap when you're trying to create distance or when you're far away from the boss for too long.

Sanguine Noble Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
Blood Puddles Slashes the ground, leaving blood puddles in the area. Touching the blood puddles will build-up your bleed meter. You will clearly see the blood puddles on the ground, stepping on them will build up your bleed meter so avoid them at all costs.
Dagger Parry Raises the dagger in its left hand, waiting for an attack. If it successfully parries you, you will get a frontal stab that deals massive damage, and also stack up your bleed meter very quickly. When you see the dagger being lifted up or you see a different stance, do not engage in melee, because the parry will most likely connect, and you will be stabbed, which deals massive damage. You can engage in magic or ranged attack.
Dagger Throw Uses the dagger on its left hand as a projectile and throws it towards you. When you create distance, be ready to dodge roll as well since the dagger throw is the ranged option for this boss.
Leaping Thrust Leaps forward, closing the gap and thrusts its sword. Can be followed up by other attacks afterwards. This is one of the boss' attacks that will quickly close the gap when you try to create distance or if you're far away for to long. It is recommended that you just dodge roll backwards or away from this attack as it can follow up with a different attack after the initial thrust.

      For you casters who struggle with this guy: in the snowfield you can summon by the ruins. Find where the summon sign drops then ride north until you invasion-dismount. The second you dismount, run directly back to the spot you can summon. He'll be there soon. Pull up Great Shield ashes and flask. As he runs towards you, hit him with rotten breath or other good spell. Roll away until your ashes get his attention. Just don't let them aggro the guys at the ruins or run too far and despawn them. Give them a minute to build aggro then you can rotten breath him down easily. Same strategy in Moghwyn cave. Summon Great Shield ashes and just roll until they lock him down. They can solo him for you if they're level 7+, but you can speed it up with rotten breath.

        Sanguine sanctum. Damn it laurence! Becease of your incredibly good theme everytime i see the words "sanguine" i automaticly say the lyrics of yout theme!

          Back off, keep out of swing range, full rotten breath, guard counter a couple of times after after a flurry. Goes down very quickly.

            I've been wanting to try the bloody helice but not enough to deal with the boss version of that thing at rose church in liurnia to get it. I can kill it easily. with plenty of room to move and get distance from it. I care more about looking spiffy than I do armour rating, damage negation or resistances. the downside is I get done over quickly and quite easily by anything that can make me bleed, infect me with rot or poison me. but someone says they summoned the wolves. that's good enough for me.

              I killed the snowfields putrid avatar before getting to this invasion and it didnt spawn.
              After beating the game and not going to NG+, i returned and they spawned.
              There has also been a patch since then, but i did come back and check a few times before completing the game, where they wouldnt spawn.

                Killed the one in Writheblood Ruins at level 25 pretty easily, I used the three wolves spirit ashes, which will practically stunlock him forever, and spammed the Reduvia's WA (he's really weak to bleeding)

                  You can jump past their regular pokes and knife throws I think. Jump pokes with the cross naginata worked well against them.

                    Be careful not to aggro the bears near where he spawns in the snowfields. You're going to have a bad time.

                      there is also one in the second church of marika, prior to eleonoras invasion. once you get yura there, the sanguine noble wont spawn in anymore

                        One of these guys invades you as you get closer to the Waygate to Mohgwyn Palace in the Consecrated Snowfield. He dual wields Reduvias, kinda dangerous if you let him get too close.

                          Damn shame that blood puddle move isn't something we can get. Bloodboon is so small and doesn't last anywhere near long enough.

                            Killed him at level 23, used three wolves ashes to help stunlock him, the Regalia of Eoichaid's weapon art and a lot of jumping strong attacks. He has low poise so take advantage of that when you can. When he spins and readies his rapier, he's about to charge so get out of the way, it can be a oneshot if you're trying to kill him at a low level and low vigour.

                            He tends to keep aggro on you longer than most enemies, so make sure he's turned towards the dogs before healing.

                              Rot breadth -preferably ekyzkes- plus antspur rapier plus a heavy shield.
                              Use breadth from when he invades in consecrated snowfield.
                              This way u can defeat it at a low level.

                                Really tough enemy so of course there are four. Tough until I had enough INT to use ancient deatth rancor, it works well in tight spaces and stun-locks these dudes. If your mana is limited you can also sneak in other attacks as they hit.

                                • Probably the hardest enemy in the game, huge health bar, deadly insta poke attacks, move faster than Black Knives and they just never back off. You have to learn to strafe and backstab them when they go into parry stance otherwise they just don't give you any opportunity to attack.

                                    Got invaded by him in the Snowfields and died to him. Went back for a rematch and he never spawned again.

                                      So, there are four of them spawning in Mohgwyn Dynasty Mausoleum with each giving 6062 runes. But the 4th one just awarded me somewhat over 30k runes. wtf?

                                      I spent 25k on the nearby merchant right before kill the fourth (which spawns when you return from the merchant), could this be related?

                                        He's not invading anymore at the snowfield... He did invade before. The only thing i did was kill the merchant for the bell since last time he invaded

                                          There is a sanguine noble invader near the sending gate north of the Yelough Anix Ruins. Really annoying fight with the OG greatsword. Had to roll and stab the entire thing.

                                            they seem to be able to parry you, and its basically a oneshot move if you have low enough vigor. it deals like 1/3rd of your hp and then you get bloodloss

                                              It uses the Reduvia dagger, but i don't think he drops anything uppon death, too bad as i wish i had two of these daggers before NG+.

                                                • Invader may be bugged somehow and doesn't invade. Seems to be fairly common for players. Some claim he only invades at night, but in some cases he will not invade at all, regardless of time of day or if Mohg is alive or not.

                                                    For the invade version, i just horsebacked it
                                                    For the ruins encounter, i used soldier ashes and just dps'ed him down.
                                                    Cheesy, but better than using 15 minutes learning the encounter :')

                                                    • Make a backup of your saves, i'm 100% sure there is a bug and he might not invade. I had a backup before killing Commander Niall and this time he showed up. All I had done before in my original save was explore the area. The same happened with Festering Fingerprint Vyke. It could be random or a level limit bug.
