Bloodhound Knight Darriwi Boss Fight Guide – Elden Ring
Defeating the boss can be difficult due to his fast mobility speed and the ability to blood damage to the player. This fight can be very hard for players since the Knight is very aggressive and can become invisible during movement. Making things worse is the fact that you cannot summon your spirits for assistance. While his attack don’t inflict much damage but his attacks can hemorrhage resulting in a painful bleeding effect so you need to keep an eye on your health.
The best way is to maintain as much distance as possible from the boss and try to dodge his attacks on time.
Thankfully, it has very little health so you will be able to kill him quickly if you choose a two-handed attack. Wait for him to do his three-strike chain attack then do a strong magic attack like Carian Piercer to deliver heavy damage. Your best chance is to deal a large amount of damage with fewer strikes as possible.
Try using a shield to observe his attack patterns and movements and then plan a counterattack. Remember timing is crucial in this battle so you need to dodge and retaliate as soon as possible. You can also equip the Glintsword Arch weapon skill to summon the floating swords and then the swords will be able to damage him even when you are busy dodging.
Once you manage to identify the attack patterns and movements, you just need to figure out the timings to dodge and deliver the maximum amount of damage in a short period of time. You will be rewarded with the Ash of War: Barricade Shield once you manage to defeat him.
