Executioner (Torturer) Information

 

"These wicked Torturers don`t wield conventional weapons -- the tools of their trade are intended to inflict pain upon their Undead victims rather than death. If you underestimate them, you`ll find that regardless of their intention, they certainly can kill you."

Strategy Tips

  • There is an easy way to deal with the group of executioners that will gank you through your path to the boss fight, once you defeat the first one in the forest, go through the path, then slowly walk forward until you see the first executioner falls down the pillar then run back to the place where you killed the first executioner and wait until he comes to fight you , then repeat for each one of them, the executioners that use whips will do small amount of damage and if their attacks are blocked with a shield will drain only 5 or 6 stamina compared with the ones with the staff that have an absurd damage for a normal enemy

      Sprinting and rolling past them is so easy. Jump to the platform outside the executioner chariot bossfight that has the fire seed and then watch them all walk off the bridge and die for free souls.

        I'm in NG+ with over 2300 HP and each hit from the red phantom version takes about a quarter of my health. Damn these guys are strong. They are imo the strongest enemy in the game. I thought that their Weapons inflict dark damage but when I blocked their attack with my Greatshield of glory they didn't scratched my health.

          Honestly I couldn’t beat a single one at first, but I figured an easy method. Regardless of whatever combo they use, try to stay out of reach or block while moving around them. They stop when they finish their attack briefly, and you can move around and easily backstab them and then finish them off as they get up if you don’t kill them with the backstab. Single out each one of them by moving forward and then getting them by themself. Really easy enemy now

            They seem to be weak to fire. It's not worth trying firestorm as the poise effect is almost null, however, the fireball and fire orb blocks their animation and so preventing them from reaching you. Just got to NG+ with a new character and for god sake, these f*ckers are more challenging than many bosses.... 2 dragonriders in Drangleic Castle? I bet 2 of these with a little more HP would be waaaaay beyond

              After fighting through them 3 or 4 times i thought the easiest way to handle them was to just run past them, over the bridge and then jump to the left or right side over the gap (just a few meters before the red phantom thingy). They immediately stop hunting you and most of them just fall off the bridge. It's actually really funny to see them just fall down one after another.

                The NG++ Executioners become stronger. At first I used the king's shield+5 to block his attack and went around behind him, now eating 2 slashes is "oh" "ah". Why can't you block the enemy's attack?

                  Anyone who's having trouble with these guys: just creep very slowly into the area where they hang out until you see one aggro, then pull back. Back away from their first attack, roll through their second attack, then circle around them during their third attack and backstab them. I can easily get through all of them without getting hit once using this tactic.

                    Thats why they made Dark Souls II easier... you can still kill them 12 times or so and they wont respawn lol xD

                        these *****ing things are annoying as *****. I can't kill them at all because i always die to the lat one and he survives with barely any health
