Notes

  • In Brume Tower, this red phantom will run downstairs towards the Ashen Idol to heal up when his health is around 50% (luring you into an ambush/cursing area if not cleared beforehand). It is possible to kill him on the way down.
  • His Heide Greatlance does not deal lightning damage.
  • He's also able to guard break and backstab you.
  • Will perform the "Mock" gesture if he kills the player in Brume Tower
  • In Eleum Loyce, he has quite the behavior. Upon encountering him, he will do the "Righty-Ho" or "Wave" gesture followed by the "Welcome" gesture. After that he will stand in front of you until he finds an opportunity to backstab you. He will do the "No Way" gesture if you take a while looking at him and then you get one-shotted by his backstab or he will do the "Decapitate" gesture after he one-shot backstabs you right away, one-shot backstabs you after turning the lever ahead of him, or attacking him then he kills you in any way. If you do attack him, he runs away to a dead end by the gate to the Covetous Demon where there's an Ice Hedgehog there so he can drink Estus, or if you've already opened the gate he runs through and he hides by the demon. If you fall down the ledge before you find him he somehow manages to lure the nearby white Covetous Demon to you where he now makes his final stand against you. If he wins he will do the "Mock" gesture or the "Decapitation" gesture depending on how much HP he and the Covetous Demon have remaining. He does "Mock" if they both have 50%+ HP left upon your death or "Decapitate" gesture if both have below 50% HP left upon your death.
  • Be wary of his dashing attack since it can knock you down the tower, falling to your death.
  • Possible to have enemies turn against him with a Seed of a Tree of Giants at Brume Tower encounter, but not during second encounter in Crown of the Ivory King.
  • However he can be used for turning against invaders along with other non-phantom enemies with Seed of a Tree of Giants at Crown of the Ivory King.

      I think this is the worst enemy in the game. Nothing else tracks dodges like he does. He can change trajectory MID JUMP ATTACK.

            In Eleum Loyce, after wounding him until he runs to the dead end corner (assuming you haven't opened the gate to Jabba yet), you can lure him to the elevator room you first came down in. He won't be able to get through the door (Note: Not tested in Scholar of the First Sin). Using a long weapon and good timing, you should be able to dodge his attacks and chip away at him allowing you a relatively painless kill. I've only done this once, so I can't attest to this strategy's reliability.

              For the Ivory King encounter, if you don't feel the need to kill him you can make sure you've lit the bonfire near there (it's across the bridge in a house a bit further back) and hit him until he runs away. Pull the lever then feather/bone/run back and rest. Then when you've reset, run across the bridge without entering the house he's in and drop down so you can run straight through the open gate. if you run and dodge well enough you shouldn't take any damage (the hedgehog things are the main issue so be careful). If you keep running the enemies should stop chasing after that. You can progress comfortably from there with no stupid assassin making your life difficult.

                If you're having trouble with Frozen Eleum Loyce Mauldron, even after opening the gate, there is one thing you can do. Once you get the free backstab in the room you meet him in, just stand in the doorway that he runs through. He cannot phase through you, and he will not attack you. You can body block him and just keep attacking. If you do it right, you'll kill him before he even gets a chance to run to Jabba. I found most success sticking to the left side of the doorway.

                  I suggest using toxic mist. It will take all 3 uses, and he won't attack you during; he will only try to run. This will allow you to chase him and simply wail on him while he's wide-open and attempts to use a corrosive urn. May take 2 chases, but he still won't attack you, because he's set on running away to heal.
